drank Pure Vanilla (organic) by DAVIDsTEA

finished the last of this tonight – trying to drink up a few of the herbals/caffeine free teas that i have in the house. I’d be willing to pick this one up again just to have a vanilla tea to be able to blend with others. I just don’t think i’d drink it on it’s own too often.

mmmm had a cup of this today in the evening since i’m trying to relax and de-stress a little before the week starts up again. On the plus side, next weekend is along weekend, so that will be nice :) i am a fan of this tea, even with the rose. it blends really nicely and the chamomiles makes for a nice was of subduing the rose, while still letting it be in the tea. thanks angel for sending this one my way!

gross. i grabbed one of these in teabag form the other day when i was in chicago. Of all the teabags, this one was the worst. lol. This has a veyr artificial and floral sort of aroma, and brewed it’s just artificial and awful. I didn’t finish drinking it.

Ick, I made the mistake of grabbing a bag of this one from a restaurant too. Hibiscus yuckiness. :(

drank Yu Lu Yan Cha Black by Verdant Tea

mmmmmm pulled this one out of the cupboard since i have a metric ton of this, zhu rong and LB…and my LB stash has been dwindling. Once again, i was reminded of m=just how much i love this tea. it’s similar to LB but not as cocoa like..but still there are familiarities between the two that make this cup also, a deliciously enjoyable substitute for my beloved LB that i need to hoard again.

Home from the BBQ now and trying to pack and get ready for tomorrow! woot woot!

dexter sent this one my way and i think i’m a fan. I brewed this western style to take to the BBQ with me since i knew i’d need something to keep me going. No maple added this time since i just wanted to get a sense of the tea sans additions. This was smooth and slightly malty. No floral notes that i detected, but then i was outside for a gorgeous afternoon with awesome friends…so not much as going to ruin that!

drank Golden Yunnan by RiverTea

Sipdown! (now only 2 teas older than 6 months in my cupboard, and one to get through this month heh). I’ve enjoyed this tea from RiverTea. It’s malty and smooth and a decent average, every day sort of tea. It’s not going to rock your socks but its a nice enough cup when you want something that is unobtrusive and reliable. :)

I actually like this one quite a lot. Maybe not as much depth as some Yunnans but I like the extra little kick from the hint of smoke.

drank Kenya Obsidian by Butiki Teas

had a go at this one this morning. I’m struggling to get ready to leave the house, mostly because i don’t want to. So i pulled this one out of the cupboard, hoping it would have enough bite to it, to get me going. Turns out, this is a decent black, with a little brightness to it…not sure how else to describe it. I can see this turning bitter fairly easily if over steeped. It was exactly what i needed to get going this morning, but in the grand scheme of things, i prefer other teas from stacy :)

oh dexter… you always spoil me. this is a lovely tea from Norbu and one i greatly enjoyed, though for the life of me, i can’t recall well enough to write a proper note. It was one of the teas that i had yesterday before running off to do my overnight and it was a great start to the evening. But man, it feels like i drank this a billion years ago. I’d be inclined to pick some of this one up again as it really was great.

drank Crème Brulee by Bayswater Tea Co.
4875 tasting notes

Another from the wee small hours of the morning. I am officially exausted. 2 hour nap and now i’m up again because i have a friend obligation that i have to attend of my friends might just disown me. It’s the wedding/party celebration my friends are having here in toronto for those folks that didn’t make their wedding out at cape breton. My other half and i just could make it out there so we have to make sure we’re there for this. He’s already with them as he’s helping with the costco factor but i needed at least a little sleep. No idea how i’m going to get through today, since it’s head down there, hang out…then back home to pack for tomorrow’s trip and get organised with work for the morning…possibly more testing this evening for another deployment…and then i need sleep so that i can be functional with the vendor tomorrow night where we need to socialise. blech.

thankfully this tea is deliciously creamy and tasty, and managed to get me through the last bit of this morning. :)

another from last night – this + creme brulee always makes me happy. I’ll be sad when this is all gone but i’ve got quite a bit left for now :)

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.
