not much to saw on this one as i don’t recall enough from the time that i drank it. I didn’t hate it, but i’m not sure if i loved this batch as much as the previous batch. I’ll have to revisit when i can record my thoughts closer to drinking it :)

drank Pure Buds Black by Mandala Tea

Another from the past few days – pulled it out because i needed a little mandala love in my life that day. So glad that i re-ordered this one….love how sweet and delicious this one is without being similar to the other straight teas that i love!

I pulled this one out the other day as well – need to get cracking on those teas that are close to sipdown range :) PLus i like the balance of depth of this tea combined with the chocolate. It’s a really nice treat for days when i want something sweeter/flavoured for a tea.

drank Zhu Rong Yunnan Black by Verdant Tea

i’ve been slacktacular with my tea logging the past week. Not sure what it is but i am seriously de-motivated by almost everything – work, tea, house stuff… just want to go away or change things up, but the more i look at things to do and places to go, the more it sucks ‘cause i really can’t afford to do much this year until the we get through all of the wedding related things. I swear to god if we have kids and they get married, if they want to elope or have a destination wedding or something teeeeny, tiny, i will let them! haha

This has been one that i’ve been trying to pick up more frequently, if only so that i run out of my verdant teas at the same time for a re-order lol. It’s still tasty and delicious though this harvest wasn’t as amazing as the last. :)

I really like orange teas. I also really like rosemary…in cooking. :) While i would call this tea an accurate one, it doesn’t work for me because it turns the tea into very much a savory tea. And orange for me isn’t a savory sort of thing…it’s sweet…and tangy but not savory. So this is a good tea, but it doesn’t work for me. The orange and the rosemary blend quite nicely, and the rooibos isn’t a very overpowering taste. It’s also not that sort of woody rooibos. So if that sounds like your sort of thing, id recommend this. :)

Another one that i have the pleasure of finishing off. On the upside, i’m nearly through tasting all the teas that i really wanted to have a run with out of the box. It’s been a good one! This is a lovely tea and very much a desserty tea with a creamy, buttery, apple spice sort of taste to it. This is a little rich for me though, so i’m not sure that i need more of it in my life haha It’s really lovely though!

drank Organic Bold Leaf Pu-erh by Wegmans

HGTTB haha i hadn’t read the review of this one before i picked it out of the box to try. I don’t think it’s quite as bad as everyone thinks it is but i also wouldn’t brew this straight up western. It does have a little fishy smell to it but as far as the taste goes, it’s a pretty average cup. It’s nothing spectacular, but it’s not toss out worthy either :)

drank Rhubarb + Custard by Bluebird Tea Co.

HGTTB I had the last cup of this one from the box as well. I wanted to revisit this one since it’s been a long while since i’ve had teas from bluebird. Turns out, this is still a tasty cup of tea and still one that i rather enjoy as far as herbals go. Just the right amount of tang and sweet :)

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.
