drank L'Automne by Fauchon

Last tea of the evening since I have to work tomorrow. Blech. Not looking forward to it but at least I can do it at home! Plus this weekend, my parents are around for a day or so. It’ll be nice to see them.

I think this was my favourite of the “Fancy French Teas” I snagged from you! I sorta mixed it up with Rouge d’Automne (Mariage Freres) but this one is still the best! Guess I’ll have to keep an eye out for it!

Ummm. after hiatus of course. :P

drank Walter Bishop Honeybush by 52teas

I do so love this tea. It’s just that much better than franks strawberry pie. Creamier, less cinnamon…deeeeelicious. I’ll be sad when this is all gone as I haven’t found a better strawberry honeybush.

drank Vanilla Plantation by Silk Road

mmmmm vanilla latte style! I had a cup of this while my other half napped before we have dinner. He was up at 3am this morning to be in for work at 4am to satisfy the materialistic needs of all the crazy people who needed to go to the mall. UGH. so he didn’t get much sleep last night. I am a fan of this tea. Still need to do a comparison with my other vanilla tea to see which i prefer but i’ve got a few cups before this one is gone heh.

drank Fu Man Chu by SerendipiTea

for not focusing on sipdowns, i’m still managing to get a few in. I don’t have high hopes for meeting my goal at the end of the year but every cup made is a step closer! Not to mention that i have a few days of working from home next week that will help.

Cavocorax gave me this one…i didn’t realise it had jasmine in it. I had a sip but that’s about all i could manage since the smell was overpoweringly jasmine…eau de fleur is not my most favourite. Still though, it’s one off the list of all the teas! hahaha

Cavocorax

Oh – sorry about the jasmine!

Sil

Haha it’s ok :)

drank Pumpkin Ginger Spice by Traveling Tea
6059 tasting notes

love. this. tea. seriously. Talk about tasting like actual pumpkin – which of course has something to do with the GIANT chunks of pumpkin in this. So happy terri shared this with me. I thought tonight’s cup would finish off what she sent me but i’ve got enough for another sil sized cup another night. Perfect, since i can resteep this tonight for a couple of cups of goodness.

Back to work tomorrow AND a friend of ours is coming to crash at our place since he still doesn’t have power. While i am totally cool with that, it also means i may need to go in to work tomorrow instead of working from home. but we’ll see.

and tomorrow i get to liberate my mail from jail! WOOHOO!

Fjellrev

I’m glad you still have power!

sipdown! (159) brewed up a nice giant cup of this and it’s delicious! Thanks again Tastybrew for sharing this with us. While this isn’t quite the pear tea that iv’e been looking for this really does taste, as TB mentions, a pear and a cinnamon jelly belly in my mouth. lol pretty darn delicious!

mmm thanks for sending this one my way terri! I like this even with the coconut in it as it comes across as mostly almond cookie :)

Terri HarpLady

yeah, I didn’t really taste much coconut in it.

bleh. I like the rooibos version better but i’m glad to have tried this. There’s something about the base that doesn’t sit well with me.

Sipdown and a thank you terri for letting me try this version!

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.
