had a cup of this tonight while proofreading some stuff for my other half and just trying to relax. I’m exausted and need sleep so i figured some herbal teas were a decent option. still enjoying this one as far as bagged teas go :)

drank Mate Mint by Tea Desire
4923 tasting notes

thanks for sharing this one Roswell Strange this just add to my suspicion that mate is just not for me. I like mint but on the whole mate just has this weird strange taste that i can’t get behind. it’s WEIRD…like licking hot asphalt or something..i dunno it’s just REALLY present and what i always taste with mate. But i’m glad i tried it heh ’cause you never know!

VariaTEA

Did I share this?!? I don’t ever remember having it.
This seems more like a Roswell Strange tea

Sil

Oopsy you are correct, checked the outside bag. This is from Roswell. So used to it being from you, I thought I’d finished hers heh

VariaTEA

Lol. Well essentially we are one so it’s cool :P

Roswell Strange

Lol, one and the same ;) Sorry you didn’t like this one, though.

drank Frisky Rhubarb by Cornelia Bean
4923 tasting notes

cold brew of this one tonight courtesy of dexter who hasn’t even logged this yet! :) I’m not sure that i would call this rhubarb or frisky…but it is pretty tasty. it reminds me of another tea i’ve cold brewed recently, so i’m not sure that bodes well for it as being “different” enough from other teas to hold its own. that being said it was refreshing and not super tart so that’s a win for me! thanks dexter!

Preparation
Iced 8 min or more

drank Yu Lu Yan Cha Black by Verdant Tea
4923 tasting notes

I had this one again today since my LB only got picked up from the post office today. I have one serving left that i’m saving for a comparison with the newer harvest just for the fun of it. it’s funny how originally i didn’t love this one and now, this and LB and a couple others are my reach for teas. not much else to say about this one until i do a compare :)

boychik

I love this one. I have to place an order for it since it’s Terri’s sample

drank Loco Lime by RiverTea
4923 tasting notes

no moar sipdowns! i had this one as a cold brew, ending my cupboard today at 139 (+4 on the way = 143) which means to meet ONE of my goals, i need 48 more sipdowns between now and the end of the month OR i have 12 more teas from January to get through, which is so not going to happen based on the quantity there haha i like playing drinking tea games with myself. I’ll see what i can do to get to the end of my goal, but unless work slows down a little, i’m not sure i see it happening. But i always try :)

this one is best cold brewed IMO. i don’t get the “carrot” flavour that VariaTEA did, but it’s almost not quite so close to being lime but not. :) it is great for hot summer days though, and that’s what WILL matter in august/september at this rate heh.

Final Count: 139

Preparation
Iced 8 min or more
VariaTEA

Haha. I really don’t know how I got carrot.

OMGsrsly

That’s incredible!

30/28 sipdowns heh the last of this is being split out to a few tea friends that i know might have fun at least trying this one since it’s not a common tea shop, nor local. Had a lovely last cup of this while taking a bath and trying to get my mind to stop thinking about work so that i’ll be able to sleep tonight. maybe.

29/28 sipdowns yes, i’m aiming for a few moer since LB sipdown doesn’t really count since it will be back tomorrow and there are another 3 or so teas arriving on tuesday… so i figure if i’m still able to take in liquid.. let’s doo this!

i’m certainly glad this wasn’t variaTEA’s favourite tea or anything because it went in the mouth and then back out in to the cup. gross. there is nothing honey nor almond nor biscotti like about this one. it’s just floral bitter grossness. ick lol

Roswell Strange

Yeah, I didn’t like it much either. Don’t think anyone’s had a real “win” with this one yet…

VariaTEA

Haha. It sounded like it would be nice. It was not. I figure I would keep sharing and hoping for the best but like Roswell Strange said, no one has really had a “win” with it yet. Probably why it is not being grabbed from my swap list :P

yes…yes i can cheat as much as i want! 28/28 sipdowns as i wanted to try this before giving the remainder to my friend. on the whole…while this is a lovely tea, it doesn’t sing to me like my black teas do…it’s really just toooooo soft. and quiet. :)

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.
