I could have sworn i’ve logged this before but apparently not. Had a small cup of this one tonight to clear my taste buds out while doing some dishes tonight. I like this one a fair bit, though greens aren’t preferred tea but if nothing else i’ve got a fun box once i’ve finished it! lol

CHAroma

That is a cool box!

drank Earl Grey Creme by Della Terra Teas
5059 tasting notes

sipdown! (199) received this as a free sample from della terra…i think? either way i much prefer the earl grey creme from upton, though i really wish someone could explain to my why earl grey creme = lemon chiffon like black tea to me :) it’s alright but if i had to drink an earl grey creme it’d be upton’s. Not rating this one since i’m not a fan of earl greys…but it’s a decent cup.

Lala

I know you are slowly moving over to the Grey side!

Sil

no lala! no no no no no :)

Lala

Keep telling yourself that! :P

Terri HarpLady

Yeah, Sil, it sounds like you’re starting to cave a little.
I enjoy an occasional earl…if they aren’t too acidic.

Fjellrev

I agree, there are better ones out there.

drank Sunrise Sensation by sTEAp Shoppe

sipdown! (200) yay for being back down to 200! i’m trying to finish up a few more teas that i want to send off to my tea sister this weekend so there will likely be a few more of these here and there :) I still can’t figure out this tea…it tastes like cinnamon swirl but then it tastes like something completely different. I don’t dislike this one..but i’m not sure where it fits…

drank Milk Chocolate by sTEAp Shoppe
5059 tasting notes

sipdown! (202) where did 203 go you might ask? well that was one of the verdant reserve sample from points tea that i had with dinner. I don’t bother logging them because you can only redeem once (which makes me a sad panda) and because it varies depending on when you redeem them. I also have zero information on the tea besides the fact that it was “2006 wild picked stone-pressed yabao”

This tea? it’s ok. pretty much will be fine never drinking it again, though it wasn’t a “toss down the drain” tea of anything like that. I just prefer black and white from steap shoppe as there are other better chocolate teas out there that i love. :)

drank Keemun by Red Blossom Tea Company
5059 tasting notes

sipdown! (204) I’ve enjoyed this one as i’ve been drinking it. Especially with a dash of maple syrup in it :) Red Blossom is for sure a company that i would be willing to order from again someday!

Amariel

I’m Keem un trying this one from my packet you sent. (<—see what I did there? :P )

Sil

lol goof! add maple syrup to it! :)

Chelle

I am going to have to try maple syrup in my tea, I have some maple sugar cubes in the shape of maple leaves that I have tried in my tea that were really good!

Terri HarpLady

I’ve been adding a little maple to teas instead of stevia once in awhile. I haven’t tried it in Keemuns, since I usually drink them straight, but now I’m gonna have to give it a chance, just to see :)

drank Strawberry Rhubarb Crumble by DAVIDsTEA
5059 tasting notes

mmmmm having a cup of this tonight just for fun. I have a plan for my teas to drink down this week so i’m feeling aaaalmost ready for back to work tomorrow. Looking forward to getting back in to a routine of sorts and getting a handle on the new work process for vacation/overtime etc. I do quite like this a bunch – it’s growing on me, though as far as strawberry rhubarb flavouring goes, this is second to Ruby pie from butiki but vastly superior to the ones from 52 teas. Something about canada day says strawberry rhubarb to me…so in the absence of delicious pie or something like that tonight, tea it is! :)

Fjellrev

Good choice for today. Happy Canada Day!

sipdown! (205) I was under 200 for my goal for the end of June, but the arrival of a small package from nxtdoor means that i’m back slightly over 200 again. However, i figure i’ll be through a couple sipdowns before the weekend rolls by so i should be ok. Of course, that’s provided my verdant birthday order doesn’t arrive…though if it does i can always keep it boxed up until my actual birthday since i’m not sure if i can afford my other bday orders heh.

anyway…i digress on with the tea! So this one? it’s ok. not my favourite, not my least favourite. pretty middle of the road as far as teas that i’ll drink go :) I don’t mind being done with it heh

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.
