drank The Witching Hour by 52teas
4043 tasting notes

tried this again tonight to try and see if it can be passed on to IB…but apparently i’m too tired to really review it properly. it tasted less ick from the first time i had it so maybe it just needed time to cure even more than i’d left it. still not entirely convinced….

Indigobloom

don’t torture yourself!! there’s time. Maybe make a mini cuppa next time?

Sil

no torture. just a really long week

Indigobloom

I hope you get some vacation time when you get back from China! lady needs a break lol

drank White Christmas by 52teas
4043 tasting notes

I’m bagged…tea bagged? lol yeah.. so tired. Massage tonight in rep for china, followed by dinner and board games with the other half as a “de stress and spend time together before you disappear for 2 weeks” kind of thing.

I had this in the afternoon…it reminds me of another tea that i can’t place at this precise moment. tasty but reminiscent of something..

drank Ginger Pear by Simpson & Vail
4043 tasting notes

SIPDOWN!

This one’s a little more ginger-y than my first cup so that’s nice. I like seeing how the actual presence of ginger impacts the tea. I really like how the two flavours come together in this tea. Still on the look out for a delicious pear (found grapefruit, now i’m on to pear!). This is probably my favourite so far.

Michelle

Try the Caramelized Pear from Art of Tea if you haven’t – that’s my favorite :)

Sil

haha Kittenna received some of that in a swap from Azzrian so she’s saving some for me to try. :) I think we’re also going to try the green pear from S&V at some point too

Terri HarpLady

Yeah, the art of tea’s caramelized pear was tasty, as I recall. It’s been awhile since I had it though.

Sil

i was stacy’s caramelized pear damnit! haha

Hello old friend. It’s been a while, you see i’ve been busy. But now, i’m trying to figure out which of my friends are coming on a trip with me and i needed to remind myself what it’s like to wrap my tastebuds up in you. (deep breath) it has been too long. thank you for this moment this morning. I needed the calm before the storm.

This matcha + belgian chocolate matcha = a less artificial tasting even chocolatier wonderful matcha smoothie :) it’s a good morning even if it is T MINUE 2!!!! BLAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!1

Indigobloom

omg I’ve been trying to figure that out. This one + almond really didn’t do any good :/

Sil

this one + french vanilla works too… cheesecake might as well.

Sil

mostly i’m just trying to finish drinking it. not my fav and likely not a repurchase :(

Indigobloom

I’ll try it with Cheesecake. I haven’t got any vanilla. Hmmm. Maybe peppermint.

drank Lime Jello Salad Green Tea by 52teas
4043 tasting notes

mmmmm Figured i’d try this tonight because i can! actually i’m panicking a bit and just need something to keep my mind focused so new teas it is. I actually kind like this one. it really does remind me of lime jello salad, though i REALLY want to brew this cold now with a bit of sweetener.

Fjellrev

Cold steeping this is the best EVAR. I don’t add sweetener, though.

Sil

oooooh alright. even more incentive to try! Also..i only add sweetener of some sort after i’ve tried it with nothing…

Well i thought i’d try this one as a cold brew since it’s a suggestion on verdant’s website. While its not too shabby cold, i still prefer this one hot. I do like how the flavours are just slightly different when they’re cold. Overall not a bad little one.

So uh funnny story? I like this better hot haha. Cold brew from the other day and it’s so much better warm.

Indigobloom

drank Amaretto by DAVIDsTEA
4043 tasting notes

Thank you Raritea for this tea try! The verdict is still out on this one since midway through enjoying my cup, my parents called to a) freak out about my impending trip to china that they’re worried about since OMG their only child is going to be so far away in a communist country on her own and AAAHHHHHH! (nevermind that it’s on business) and b) Show me all the tea that mom was awesome enough to pick up while she was in London @ selfridges…namely 3 different teas from Mariages Freres. Yep! I get to have Mariages Freres sometime in the future whenever i can meet up with my parents (they’re about 3 hours away from me).

But anyway this tea? It smells divine and seems to taste mighty swell…but i kind of drank it without paying attention to it lol

I tried the last sample i received from this company today and needless to day i have a bit left over for another round of it. From this one, i’m getting mostly a rooibos taste, which i don’t mind but is clearly lacking the blueberry piece of the tea :) Holding off rating this though since i was at work and not paying much attention to how long i steeped it. That being said, wouldn’t it be nice if the website had SOME information on the tea? lol sigh

Fjellrev

Yeah, their website is a little frustrating. I kept missing out on visiting their store the last couple times I was in town since it’s out of the way. Seems to be the best way to do things with them.

Sil

Yep. I’m curious what their website USED to look like lol. I may just ask a friend to send some my way from edmonton. Since i likely won’t make it back for a bit.

Fjellrev

I just checked the site and it looked the same when I got my samples a year ago. Hmm. I was supposed to go home for Reading Week this upcoming week but have too much work to do. Too bad, I could have sent some! Maybe I’ll make a trip in May. :)

Sil

haha well let me know! :)

Bio

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.
