omgsrsly sent this my way and though i only took the first steep with me to work i was going to have more when i got home..but my other half cleaned up :( at least i’ve got another serving of this to play with and write a better note on lol

OMGsrsly

Oh, I was going to ask you about this. Mom’s planning on dropping by the tea store again this weekend, so if there’s anything that interests you… :) I just wish they sold less than 50g!

Sil

NO NO MOAR TEA! must resist purchasing. I’ve been good so far. only 1 purchase this month for my birthday and that was only 3 teas…. three…soo saaaad.

OMGsrsly

I should resist as well, honestly. But if Mom’s buying… :D

drank After Dark by Steam Tea House
4875 tasting notes

last cup of the day! mostly because i’ll be peeing all night and because i wanted something to drink while catch up with a show before bed. I’ve been trying to get a bit more sleep these days only because it will stop me from letting the hulk out at work. Soooo it’s this cup, a good book or show and a happy sigh that i should be able to hit 150 by the end of the weekend…maaaybe even the start heh.

Final Count: 160

drank Bartlet Pear by Steam Tea House
4875 tasting notes

thank you omgsrsly this one isn’t bad. it’s still not the pear tea i want it to be… somewhere between 5-9 mins is the sweet spot. 5 mins isn’t enough pear and 9+ mins is too rooibosy. but it’s been fun to try this one. The rest of this is off to dexter to try out whenever her box fills up on this end heh

Nicole

Pear seems like it is really hard to get right.

drank Loco Lime by RiverTea

had this one again tonight and it was better than before. I think the trick with this one is not to cold brew it longer than a few hours. overnight seemed to eliminate some of the lim-yiness to this while tonight it’s more like the lime taste that i want it to be.

drank Bad Weather by Fru P Kaffe & The
4875 tasting notes

miss B sent this one my way, and i suspect she may have been provided this one by angrboda since that’s whom i associate with fru P :) i’ve been putting off trying this one since there is something about the smell that just gets to me. Suspect it;s the anise smell, though that’s not usually something i dislike. brewed up, this isn’t nearly as bad as the smell would have you believe. it mellows out a bunch and becomes something that i could drink or not. It’s neither offensive or delicious…just sort of there. just not sure i could get past the dry smell to keep it around…or why i’d want to since it doesn’t inspire excitement and joy :) thanks for the taste miss b!

Angrboda

Yes, it did come from me originally. :) I had much the same experience with that that you did, it seems. Bit scared of the smell, but found it eventually neither unpleasant nor interesting. Just… meh. I think I’ve still got a bit lying around.

drank Chilli Kiss by T2

THIS! THIS TEA! thank you missB this is a great spicy, delicious, yummy tea. Someone equated this to really intense cinnamon hearts but for me, it’s not nearly as sugary as those are. this is KICK without the sweet to back it up. this is smooth and spicy and just the right balance of kerpow! without being “omg get it out of my mouth ‘cause i’m a wuss and can’t drink really spicy things” :)

Hannah F.

My local T2 made a pot that had this, chai, and chocolate. It was pretty damn good!

Sil

i love this one…may have to try and place an order some day in the future..

Hannah F.

I think it also had Toasty Nougat in it? It made for a yummy, yummy mixture – they serve it with sugar and soy milk (usually vanilla).

Sil

oooh nice!

this one was from missB by way of jump62359 from thelooks of the bag. I think i made a mistake in trying this one next to a tea that is way more OOMPH-Y than this one. while this one isn’t bad… let me tell you, the other tea i’m having kicks this one to the curb and then takes it’s lunch money. ;)

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.
