drank Kamba Berry by Butiki Teas

backlog from a few days ago. I’m very nearly done this and i have to say i rather like it as a hot brewed, cooled tea. But i can’t get over the sludge factor. The stuff that’s left over in the basket after brewing this one is just ick….and tough to clean lol.

drank Two Friends by Custom (Butiki)

I’ve got some backlogging to do…yes i do! It’s been a busy couple of week. Had this one a couple of days ago and it’s still as delicious and wonderful. I love this version from Stacy and as long as she’ll keep making it, i’ll keep it in my cupboard :)

drank Ruby Pie by Butiki Teas
4889 tasting notes

SOMEONE cavocorax pointed out that i was remiss because i hadn’t yet had tried Ruby pie as a cold brew. So i did. And i might just like it more than as a hot brew…maybe. Or maybe it’s just summer and i’m having a rough week and so this is delicious. I can’t wait for it to be morning though so i can bust out at least ONE of my new teas from terri!

and then tommorrow..it’ll be totally terri’s tea time! tada!

Preparation
Iced 8 min or more

drank Cuba Libre Black Tea by 52teas
4889 tasting notes

continuing my attempt to try and have at least one cup of 52 teas a day. I have had nothing to eat or drink all day…my work life is the suck at the moment. So now i’m home and i’m too tired to eat. But there’s tea and that’s what i’m drinking. I DID however get my tea box from terriharplady today which was about the only awesomely great thing in my day today. And while it means a significant increase to my cupboard size – it also means i have a bunch of mandala teas to try before i find a way to scrounge up some money for an order this month. :)

I cold brewed this tea and it’s a pretty good this way! it tastes like my memory of cuba libre from cuba, without tasting spot on. With a splash of sweetener it’s just a really nice cold tea.

Preparation
Iced 8 min or more
Stephanie

Dang, ya ought to eat some thing! :/

Terri HarpLady

I’m so glad you got the box :)
Sorry to hear about your crappy day. Eat something. I promise you’ll feel better.

yyz

Hopefully things get a little quieter for you soon.

Sil

OMGsrsly

Aww! If you lived closer I’d share the cupcakes I’m making for work tomorrow. Hope you have a good rest, though.

drank White Christmas by 52teas
4889 tasting notes

this is also a tea that i had today – operation 52 teas! there’s a cold brew in my fridge that will have to wait until tomorrow. no sipdowns but that’s ok. i’m under 200…y? because the post office sucks. and my package that i have a notice for wasn’t there…grrrrrrrr so now i have to wait until tomorrow. which might as well be saturday all things considered.

this tea? minty white christmas-y goodness.

scribbles

Agree ’bout post. Sent out package which the recipient was supposed to receive today. They did not. Very upset. At least tea is good.

drank Numalighur FTGFOP1 by Mariage Frères
4889 tasting notes

this tea makes me happy. this day does not. had this too long ago. i’m so glad it’s almost friday.

Ysaurella

After more than 30 minutes in the Mariage Frères shop I finally bought 50g of this tea and I am wondering why you didn’t rate it …is it really good ?

Sil

Oh haha I probably was just reviewing it on my iPad….those sliders are awful to click on. The next time I drink it ill rate it for sure! Haha I like this one quite a bit :)

Ysaurella

Great, I’ll try it tomorrow morning so …I have fear to have made a mistake…the salesman ensured me this assam was not bitter…I harassed him…are you SURE but 100% sure ? he said yes…so verdict on tomorrow morning !

drank Butterbeer by 52teas
4889 tasting notes

Another 52teas today! Operation 52 tea sipdown is in full force :) I don’t mind this one, but, as mentioned in other 52 teas notes – i don’t love it. It’s tasty but nothing i need to keep around as a staple (not that i can). i do like that this tastes like a rootbeer-ish type tea :) Not a bad start to the morning so far! though a bit weird in that i’ve started with flavoured teas :)

Terri HarpLady

We’ve sort of been on an Adagio sipdown here :)

drank Cotton Candy Black Tea by 52teas
4889 tasting notes

I realised this morning that i have a bunch of 52 teas that i don’t often drink in my cupboard. They’re not teas that i love, but they’re also not teas that i hate. Mostly they’re average teas that i just need to drink since i want my cupboard to be filled with teas that i LOVE! :)

This one is better after having sat for a while in my cupboard. I think it might be a decent cold brewed tea, though it’s not overly “cotton candy” for me. It’s more sweet black tea, if that makes sense :)

Cavocorax

IIRC, I think this one IS better iced and more cotton candy-ish.

drank Super Fruit Sencha by Fusion Teas
4889 tasting notes

SIPDOWN! (191) thanks again nxtdoor I cold brewed this overnight and i’m sipping on it this morning while i impatiently wait for my kettle to boil. I actually like this a bunch as a cold brew – moreso than most greens that i’ve cold brewed. There is no bitterness in this brew and the fruitiness of the tea complements the sencha nicely.

Good morning hump day!

So no real clue what to write about myself here. A friend got me into drinking loose tea and it’s something I thoroughly enjoy though I have nowhere near the experience that many folks on the boards seem to have.

My other interests are cycling, reading, board games, disney cruises, world of warcraft and dancing – in no particular order. I love travelling and am currently working on trying to get my other half to as many place in the world as possible.
