drank Wild Orange Blossom by Teavana

sipdown! trying to alternate today with a few caffeine and non caffeinated beverages since i’m at home and drinking a lot more than i usually do in a work day. I enjoyed this one in a sort of juice tea kind of way. The orange was nice and there wasn’t the usual tarty hibiscus thing going on that is in most herbals! thank you again fiddling

drank Autumn Blend by PureAromaTea

Sipdown! i am all over the place today so some teas i’m getting time to write about, others i’ll catch up on later when work lets me take a breather. I had this one cold brewed just to make sure i don’t like it. I think this is officially the first of the purearoma teas i just don’t really like. I feel like i SHOULD like it..but it’s just not to my tastes. It’s really just a preference thing, nothing wrong with the tea just something about the combination of spices and fruitiness that i’m not down with. oh well! can’t love every tea or my cupboard would be insane!

Preparation
Iced 8 min or more

drank Caramel by Fru P Kaffe & The
4942 tasting notes

had this again as one of the recent reviews from angrboda was on this one. I have to agree with her on this one. While it smells aaammaaaazing! the taste is almost muted and not nearly as deliciously caramelly as it seems like it should be. it reminds me a little of some of the della terra caramel teas but with a smoother black base that has a slightly less artificial taste. still haven’t found the sweet spot with this one. but man, does it smell wonderful!

drank Chocolate Orange Tea by sTEAp Shoppe
4942 tasting notes

sipdown! another one for the road haha figure i’ll let terri try a bunch of steap shoppe through me since i have lots of teas! getting excited to be making room for the travelling tea box too! and birthday orders! yay!

this one i’m still not sure about. It’s a decent enough tea but it doesn’t live up to it’s name imo. it’s more of a chocolate tea…with the occasional hint of orange. for that reason, i’m dropping the rating a bit since it doesn’t live up to it’s name, more than because i don’t like it.

drank Lemon Chiffon by Della Terra Teas
4942 tasting notes

So strangely I haven’t apparently had this since December…..which doesn’t really seem right but hey, we’ll go with it. Final tally for tonight is 230 BUT I haven’t had a chance to put the shared order that Terri and I have that’s at my house. That’s another 8 teas or so but ill worry about those when I get some time on the weekend since I suspect I may have to manually enter them all.

Release is apparently finally going in this weekend which normally would mean lots of tea drinking Saturday night but they’re forcing us to go to the centre, rather than test from home since its been a shit show the past few releases soooooo it basically means no tea for most of Saturday and Sunday. Which sucks. Which means ill be struggling to get to 200 before I go on vacation but maybe I can get enough teas to 1 cup status to bring a new cup of tea for me to drink every day I’m on vacation for sipdowns lol.

This tea? Well see previous notes. It’s lemon, its creamy and I think? I prefer the lime and the orange over it, but not by much…they’re all a pretty close margin :)

Dinosara

Is that supposed to be 230 or did you just gain 100 teas while I wasn’t looking? :)

Sil

haha yeah 230 lol

Cavocorax

230! That sucks that you’re going to be so busy on the weekend though. Don’t you ever get days off?

Sil

Days off…..lol sometimes. Usually I should have my weekends off always but it’s been a bit of a mess with releases the past few months. On the plus side, if this keeps up ill have like 3 months of vacation racked up since time in lieu is 1.5 hours for every 1 hour you worked lol

Nxtdoor

Ah, there’s that familiar word “release” that I thought I wouldn’t see for a while. Hahaha.

Sil

nxtdoor – they’re talking one every month until november now…to catch up bwahahaha so you’ll be hearing it lots! :)

Another tea nearing the end of its life with me. I still enjoy this though its less wonderful and delicious than when I first started drinking it, and tea. I like the creaminess of this one with the slight hint of berry. Overall a pretty good rooibos blend from the persimmon tree.

Sipdown! This is a tea that works best as a cold brew. I didn’t hate the hot brew that I tried tonight but it wasn’t nearly as tasty as the cold brew was. Either way it was still nice to try and now I’m one step closer to 200…..though as I start to plan my birthday orders I’m looking at roughly 200$…..sooo need to find a way to trim those orders down lol

drank Sweet Cookies by English Tea Shop

I’ve had this a few times now, and apparently haven’t logged it much. It’s a really light in flavour tea but it’s not too bad. I like that it gives me another caffeine free option. I don’t think i’d keep this around permanently in my cupboard but it wouldn’t ever be turned down. I am packing up the last couple bags for a swap since i think it’s a good one to share if for no reason than it’s not caffeinated lol

Preparation
Boiling 6 min, 0 sec

Sounds tasty! At whatever point I allow myself to make random tea orders again, I’ll have to specifically look for barley teas. Om nom nom.

Sil

it’s pretty good…just want a stronger flavour

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.
