drank Nutty Chocolate Assam by Twinings
5754 tasting notes

mmmm “nutella” tea. Another from missB this was a win for me. the right balance of chocoalte and nut along with a decent base. It doesn’t replace my MF mousse au chocolat but i DID enjoy this one a bunch, especially for a tea bag!

drank Winter Wonderland by Twinings
5754 tasting notes

Another tea from MissB that i had a few days ago…just trying to get caught up on a few things. What i remember most about this tea was that is REALLY reminded me of something that i couldn’t place. Also, i swear MissB reviewed this but i don’t see her review. This isn’t overwhelmingly pear…it’s more chamomile than anything for me. Still though, it was a decent enough cup but nothing i will crave.

i still stand by my thoughts on this tea – get the oolong out and i’d love it. Today i decided to add a little something to this and added just a little vanilla powder AND a little vanilla sugar. Not too much sugar though, but wanted to see if it would add anything to the cup. Turns out? it does help smooth out the oolong taste that for me, is too present for me to really enjoy my cups of this a lot. yay for experimentation!

adagio breeze

Is this the version with the da hong pao or the newer one with shui xian (I think)?

Sil

erm…not sure. it’s from the spring harvest…

adagio breeze

Ah, probably the DHP version then.

drank Root Beer Float (organic) by DAVIDsTEA

still really enjoying this tea as a latte. I don’t love it brewed in water, but add the milk and it is great for me. Which is good because i DID buy 100g when it came out lol

Bear With Me

Thanks for making my decision on what to make right now easy. Haha!

drank Caramelised Apple Green Tea by Twinings
5754 tasting notes

This was another from missB and a tasty treat tonight. VERY caramel with a side of apple. For a bagged tea, i’ll repeat what i said earlier…it’s pretty good. I just wish the bagged teas we have in Canada even came close to these.

Final Count: 71 yay for getting one down today.. WAY too many teas inbound and i’m still working through MissB’s teas that she sent…and those aren’t in my cupboard!

MissB

I seriously need to think about selling teas like Twinings in London does. You can buy any bag by the bag for a small price – just to taste. While I get it might be exhorbitant to ship this way… the bagged tea is so bloody good, I’d be a huge customer.

Sil

Yes. These bagged teas are great.

drank Melange Laduree by Ladurée
5754 tasting notes

MissB sent this one my way. I’ve never heard of this company before her treats arrived so i brewed this up with no expectation of what to expect and didn’t look at what was even in it. First off, these are great little muslin tea bags. I’m a fan. Secondly…

OMG THE TEA! Another tasting note called this similar to an Earl Grey. If THIS was what all EG’s were like, i’d welcome EG’s in to my heart with open arms. But they’re not. I wouldn’t call this an EG myself – i don’t get that awful blergamot taste. Instead this is a seriously deliciate citrus, spice tea with what appears to be vanilla (according to the website) that makes it just a deliciously smooth amazing cup of tea. So much so that i resteeped the tea bag a second time because i didn’t want it to be finished. drool.

Now i have ANOTHER company on my list to try that i have no access to. le sigh thank you so much MissB!!

Anna

This is a perfect tasting note. Plus you had not heard of Ladurée!!! OMG. I would totally have a Ladurée room off my kitchen, all done up to look like a mini version of one of their stores. LadurSILée!

yyz

There’s a rumour that they are considering CDN location Sil:-)

Mean while they just opened a tea salon in New York.

boychik

I don’t need to know this.

Sil

boychik – sorry lol
yyz – ooooh yay for that~ also, another reason to go to new york!
Anna – noms!

yyz

Here’s a link to their menu. The tea list is towards the bottom.https://locu.com/places/laduree-soho-new-york-us/#menu

TheKesser

I’ve never heard of them either! Now I want to know more.

Sil

I’ve got another one to try from MissB, so maybe tomorrow i’ll pull that one out.

Suziqzer

Sounds great!

MissB

I’ll have to post pictures of the one in London to Facebook; it’s amazing, it’s adorable, and their macarons are almost as good as their tea. Plus, it’s not terribly expensive either.

Anna

ALL, like literally ALL my younger friends know of Ladurée from Gossip Girl. This is typical (and please enjoy the fact that she talks about a COLOR PALATE!!! AAAH! Reverse madness!): http://www.iamnotastalker.com/2013/07/16/ladure-from-gossip-girl/

Dinosara

Argh I was just reminded that I forgot to go to Ladurée when I was in NYC!! I looooooove Ladurée, mostly for their macarons. I have always considered trying their tea (I even looked at their teas in their store in Brussels last year) but have never taken the plunge. Guess I should.

Sil

Dinosara – bummer. When i try the other one that MissB sent (it’s green) i’ll have a better idea, but they feel to me like they’d be up your alley heh.

Dinosara

Yeah, I’m sure they would be. Of course they are one of the 100g at a time French teas so it’s hard to make the first plunge.

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.
