drank Caramel by American Tea Room

Finally had this on its own instead of in milk. Yeah nope. It was much improved when I added a splash of toasted caramel liquor but not by much. Tis is for sure a milk type latte tea!


Toasted caramel liqueur sounds wicked awesome. I think I saw Cavo posting about a gingerbread Kahlua the other day too. You ladies are making me want to make a trip to the liquor store. :p


I use that liquor for whiskey caramel milkshakes heh


This one disapppointed me too :(


Yeah, won’t be a re order for me but at least in latte form it’s alright


toasted caramel liquor?? u know how to party!


Haha it’s delicious :)

Cup of this tonight with a little added puerh to make it more tea like. An improvement for sure but still nothing I love. Cold brewing the last of this to see how that works out :)

sipdown! (174) I had another cup of this today and it was pretty tasty. Less malty than a number of assam i’ve had with a mild bit of astringency. Over all a decent cup. Thanks for sharing Alice!


Another fun name!

sipdown on this one! Terri sent this my way and while i was drinking it, all i could think of was that THIS would work with the ginger much better. This is really nice – i think it would work well as a base in a number of blends :)

Terri HarpLady

I love this one. I’m gonna restock it next time I order from tea spot, & I agree, this would be awesome with ginger!

Terri HarpLady

I am eventually gonna ask ms stacy to make me a smokey gingery blend. I’ve been thinking about it for awhile. I definitely prefer this one over the Smokejumper Ginger. They don’t offer it in a tin. Dunno if you want to split some…Oh, & Bolder Breakfast is one sale right now…just say!

drank Smokejumper Ginger by The Tea Spot

Sipdown! Terri sent this my way and i figured today was a good day to try this one. I need a little kick to my afternoon. Sadly, the ginger in this one isn’t present enough. It does build while you drink this, which is nice but i miss the ginger from the first sips. I’d also like this to be slightly less smokey. I think that would balance the ginger a little better. It just means that i might need to try and blend my own sometime in the future :) I did like this though, so thanks for sharing terri!

I had some more of this since the BBB Box has arrived and I am sadly behind in finishing up the other teas from the last round. I’ve had a very productive day so far today – organised some tea that needs to go out, cleaned up my tea cupboard, cleaned the bathroom, backed up my shows and for the past hour or so, i’ve been working on my photo book for 2012. Ian and I made a promise to keep up with doing a photobook every year to capture some of our favourite memories. They aren’t big books – typically about 30 pages or so, but they are time consuming. We recently had our 2011 book delivered so i’d like to get 2012 and 2013 done this weekend (well 2013 done to this point anyway). We use Picaboo, and though they don’t always get things right on the first go, they now have free shipping, and this weekend FB friends get 50% off.

I ended up letting this tea cool a bit much for my liking, but i am still enjoying it cold. Thanks again for this one Tastybrew!

Terri HarpLady

Sounds like a much better day today than yesterday, eh?


for sure!


I still have a ton of this so if you want more, I can throw it in the next box!

I haven’t had this in a while, and since i was packing some up this morning for cteresa to try, i figured i should have a couple cups. As always, I thoroughly enjoy this one!

sipdown! I don’t know how to explain this one. It reminds me of wild mountain black without that juiciness that it has. I have enjoyed this one quite a bit. It is not a smokey keemun, which are generally my favourite but this was a really nice black. The last little bit of this is headed to one of my tea friends to try :) Thanks again for this great one alice!

drank Pineapple Matcha by Red Leaf Tea
5941 tasting notes


My matcha was composed of the following:
Size : Small
Matcha Quality: Starter (Basic Grade)
Flavor: Distinctive

I have a soft spot for the pineapple flavour in life savers. It might be my favourite. Even if it’s not quite actual pineapple taste (which i LOVE), those life savers are my happy place. When i cracked open this matcha – it was like smelling an entire package of those delicious life savers. I was in my happy place. Now, I’ve shared this matcha with a few people but i haven’t yet gotten around to reviewing it. Today, i figured why the heck not!
I opted to drink this as a latte even if some part of me was a little wary about milk + pineapple. Honestly? SOOOOO Good! I think the distinctive level is the right way to go for this one, or possibly delicate. Robust would make this a little too artificial i think.
The milk actually helps to smooth out the edge of the pineapple. Each sip is like the first instant you put a life saver into your mouth. Before i knew it, i had finished up my double mug of this! Even after it was gone, i could taste it, lingering…the best part? the after taste is more like actual pineapple. I think this will likely be a reorder!

The pineapple lifesaver is my favorite lifesaver too!


I loved this one. Thanks so much for sharing. :) I haven’t tried it with just water, or in a smoothie. Lattes all the way!

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.
