Thanks CHAroma! Looking forward to trying some of the black bagged teas you sent now that I’m through these ones :) I don’t find that the green tea really adds anything to this one. For all intents and purposes it might as well just be a cup of mint or something. Not sure…it’s just nothing special :)

CHAroma

Good to know. I’ve really procrastinated trying these teabags. I like reading your thoughts on them!

Sil

Haha yeah they’re not too bad as far as tea bags go. Mt of the time I’m going to prefer loose leaf but back up plans are always good to have!

CHAroma

I like taking teabags to work ‘cause they’re so easy.

Tea bag sip down! (I’m so nowhere even sort of close to 200 anymore…and I was soooo close). So I don’t want to hear anything from any of you but I LIKE this one lol apparently a green earl grey isn’t too bad a tea to me. Much prefer it to some of the black earl greys that I’ve had. Haha. So thank you CHAroma! The bergamot is a little more mellow or something, which is creating a not to bad cup of tea. :)

Oh, you’re all too nice. I checked. It is still 90 outside, so nothing has frozen over.

Thank you CHAroma! This one is not so bad :) I like the smooth taste of this one even if the green will never be my favourite. It’s not overly GREEN! But it’s a nice decent bagged cup :)

drank Jasmine Green by The Boston Tea Company
5351 tasting notes

Teabagsipdown! Tank you CHAroma! I have to say that this one got a good sniff after being brewed and then after a quick sip, it may have started its journey down the drain. In part because I dislike jasmine it also because this doesn’t smell a lot like jasmine..just a random floral scent. Th taste wasn’t much better. My other half said it smelled like aunt jemima’s underwear…whatever that means lol

So pancake panties?

CHAroma

LOL! How bizarre!

Tea bag sip down! Aka time for me to try all the green tea bags that CHAroma sent me to try! So there will be a few of these since I’m not as partial to green tea as black teas, so I’m getting the folks here to drink some of these with me :) they could use some sort of intake other than beer lol

This one is pretty tasty for a bagged tea. Of all the greens that CHAroma sent me, I think this one will end up being my favourite.

drank Apple Awakening Fruit Tea by Teavivre

Simple sip down! Another “not adding to this to my cupboard” tea! Had this in the morning when we woke up so that my friend could try. I couldn’t handle sleeping in the same room with my snoring fiend so I made my other half pitch a tent last night so we could sleep in it! Soooo much fun! Sleeping in a tent at the cottage :) it’s raining today too so we get to sleep in the tent while its raining and I’m super happy about it! I adore the great outdoors…and when you can do it occasionally, it’s a nice time…especially since there’s the house 2 feet away hahaha

I like this one a lot, but likely not a restock since I prefer my tea to be tea. It would be a tasty “juice” for the little ones.

Sample sip down! One of the teas I brought with me that arrived before I left for the cottage that I took so that I wouldn’t have to add them to my cupboard ha! This is a really nice black that I. Happy to have tried. Theres a smoothness to it that I quite like.

drank Flight of the Falcon by Capital Teas

Sip down! Thank you for this one nicole this is a clearly a yunnan tea and is another delicious tea from capital teas. This might be the last sample that I have from Nicole, though I’m not 100% sure since my tea stash is back home. Hanging out at the cottage means whatever teas I tossed in the box to bring up with me whenever I can spare a moment. The rain is coming down now so we’re hold up in the house, listening to music, playing board games while outside the food is cooking on the fire :)

Nicole

That sounds great. :)

Indigobloom

board games, tea and a fire?? awesomeness

drank Golden Yunnan by thepuriTea

Sip down! Won’t get too many of these unless I can find time in the next couple of days at the cottage to drink more tea but I did bring a few with me so that I could at least try. Having a cup of this while I wait impatiently for the boys to get up. Lots to do today in Ottawa before we finish the drive up to the cottage! I’ve really enjoyed the teas Terri share d with me from the puritea….enough to think about a small reorder in the future, especially since the little sample packs are so cute! Tanks for sharing Terri. Rating this one later as iPad rating is the suck lol

Aother tea I managed to nab tonight. I’m not sure if its Ottawa water so I’m glad ill have more to try when I get back to Toronto, but this did not taste like any other oolong I’ve had. Neither green nor roasted. It was intriguing to say the least so I’m looking forward to trying this again when I get home. It’s like earthy and yet not…there isn’t that toasty taste I get from most roasted oolongs…yep. Interesting :)

Terri HarpLady

I don’t think I’ve sampled this one yet. :)

Awkward Soul / Oolong Owl

ooh, never heard of this tea seller. Checking them out.. very tempting!

Terri HarpLady

You will LOVE the packaging, it is beautiful!

Terri HarpLady

AND the teas are tasty too!
:)

Cavocorax

Oh – I hope I like the water in Toronto! I hadn’t considered that. :O

Sil

Cavo – it’s very similar to water in b.c from what I can remember.
Awkward soul – Terri and I purchased a number of their black teas and all have been great so far! I particularly like the fact that you can get them in 25g sample sizes and shipping isn’t terrible…at least in Canada. Th packaging isn’t resealable but its pretty and the customer service is really good.

Terri HarpLady

I reseal those kind of packages with a fold-over & a paper clip usually.

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.
