mmmm morning tea from forever ago! I was cleaning up my cupboard over the weekend and realised that i had a small bag of this that i could tuck into my easily accessible teas even though it isn’t one of my older teas. I haven’t had this one in a while and was once again reminded at first sip, why i love Yezi teas. Just a delicious, smooth inviting black tea for this wonderful wintery day filled with snow!

started the morning out with this one…i think tomorrow i’ll do the same but as a latte…just because!

Nxtdoor

A pu’erh latte? :/

Sil

oh yes! i’ve had rousing success for some that i’ve done… it’s just like a black tea latte in the grand scheme of things :)

TastyBrew

Special Dark makes one of the best tea lattes ever. Crazy what a little milk and honey do to this.

Garret

Or as I like to call it: a “cha”-tte!!! I love the special dark!!

drank Queen of the Hill by Sloane Tea Company

Another tea from this morning…on another note anyone else getting tired of hitting the save…having the website freeze, expecting your note to be gone and then checking your tealog and finding it there? Happens almost every other tea for me heh. Enjoyed this one today as it was what i was in the mood for, an average every day sort of black tea.

Terri HarpLady

I’ve been reminding myself to copy each post before I hit the button, just in case. About have of my posts have frozen, but then it turned out to post anyway, like you said.

So…i’ve had a long day at work today. I’m still trying to get work done/clean up things today so that MAYBE tomorrow i can work an actual 7.5 hour day. Wouldn’t that be lovely? This was what i had for breakfast, before leaving the house, and i suspect what i will have again tomorrow. I actually really want to try this as a latte, but we need more milk in the house.

Apparently I also need to write this note in my sleep according to Shmiracles lol. But that’s ‘cause she’s silly. No sipdowns tonight i’m afraid since i’m not even having tea tonight. it’s all Rye and Coke ’cause that makes work WAY more relaxing and fun this late in the evening :)

drank Cottage Night by T by Daniel
6492 tasting notes

I suspect that some would refer to this as being similar to forever nuts by David’s Tea, at least from what i can remember it tasting like. I like the colour of this brew..it’s a happy place for me today. I like this one…a hint of cinnamon, some almond flavours kicking around..yep works for me tonight AND that puts me at 170 for the evening.

i think i can, i think i can, i think i can….

Sil

on a random other note.. i had orange path in my cupboard, but not logged..i clicked on the link and it took me to old steepster…. http://steepster.com/teas/river-tea/43840-orange-path but i had a review in my tasting log of that tea, but in NEW steepster…

yyz

Sil for some weird reason there are three orange path teas u der river tea. Your review is here http://steepster.com/teas/rivertea/43838-orange-path.

Sil

Yeah, sorry I did find it but it was weird seeing old steepster heh

yyz

Weird for me it came up as new steepster but no review. It’s like a ghost of steepster past.

drank Red Velvet Cupcake by T by Daniel
6492 tasting notes

So this isn’t exactly cupcake tasting to me..but it does have that echo of “red velvet” taste about it. It’s a rooibos tea but doesn’t taste like that woodsy rooibos that i don’t like. instead it’s very muted and takes a background to the other flavours that are trying to hang out with this tea. Overall, not my favourite but not a bad tea. Just happy enough to be splitting this 3 ways haha

Preparation
Boiling 5 min, 15 sec

drank Strawberry Balloons by T by Daniel
6492 tasting notes

Picked this one up at the tea festival in a shared purchase with Kittenna and Raritea. Gotta love being able to pick up sample sizes and then split them 3 ways haha. This one is a green tea and the strawberry taste is pretty darn tasty. Only downside is that as it cools, there’s a floral note hanging out in the background that i don’t like. Did i mention i kind of forgot about it? heh. sooo many shiny things to distract me with tonight…

Preparation
2 min, 30 sec
MissB

Ooh! Shiny things!

Sil

yeah… it’s like when you, SQUIRREL!

Kittenna

Mm, looking forward to trying these!

drank Pu'er Tonic by Verdant Tea (Special)
6492 tasting notes

I’m not sure how i feel about this one. I don’t dislike it, but it sort of blends in to a more bland blend than i’d like. and i totally got distracted mid review looking at wedding venues again. Every now and then i feel the urge to at least look at a few things and try to figure all this crap out. But at the end of the day, there’s very much a part of my that kinda wants to keep it small a la city hall wedding with parents and a couple close friends before going out to dinner somewhere with some good music and food. Like 10 ppl max…. sigh decisions, decisions…

drank Ruby Pie by Butiki Teas

Another tea from this morning. I realised today that I hadn’t had MY blend in a while so i should bust out of that. Made myself a travel mug for work today and was happy for doing so. I really need to drink this more often as i love the tangy pie/rhubarb/strawberry of this one :)

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.
