Started the morning with this delicious cup of goodness. This was one of the first teas i tried from teavivre and i still really enjoy it. Not much to say outside of that besides this is a great black that’s not astringent or bitter.

Terri HarpLady

It is! I think I may still have a sample of this around here somewhere. Did we order some?

Fuzzy_Peachkin

You read my mind this morning! This is a good one!

Sil

i don’t think we did terri but if you’ve never had it, let me know since i can certainly send you a bit. :)

Terri HarpLady

Oh, I have a sample of it!

Stupid steepster….basically transferred my whole cupboard tonight to a spreadsheet. I other news, sip down so even with the orders/ samples that have come in, I’m sitting at 221. I can maybe finish a few more off if I tackle my tea bags this weekend too!

Split order with Kittenna This one is pretty decent for a green tea. I weirdly think i’d like this steeped in milk though,so i’ll have to try this. Steepster is frustrating me tonight so bad tasting notes.

drank Caramel Pumpkin Cheesecake by 52teas
5357 tasting notes

I had this first thing this morning steeped in milk as a substitute latte since i was pretty sure i prefer this to starbuck’s pumpkin spice latte, which i really enjoy…and i was right! too bad this is nearly gone :(

QueenOfTarts

Wish that I had liked this one when it first came out. It was way too spicy for me.. Was it more pumpkin/caramel/cheesecake and less spice with milk?

Sil

yes! i vastly prefer this one steeped in milk for a creamy delicious goodness..

drank Indian Spice by Harney & Sons

meh. swap from fiddling overall nit a fan of this chai. I prefer others as there’s something about the blending of this one that doesn’t appeal to me.

Fiddling

I’ve learned that this one is best when underleafed and kept to a short steep. Otherwise it is just awful.

Sil

haha good to know. :)

Sil

Still happy I was able to try it out!

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.
