drank Mocha Matcha by Red Leaf Tea
4669 tasting notes

I had a mocha latte this morning since i had a bit of extra time in the morning before work. I’m trying to catch up on things so that i can take thrs and friday off or at least friday. While this is still pretty tasty, it may be that matcha is a winter drink for me. I can feel myself slowing down a little in terms of drinking it. Still, this was quiet enjoyable all things considered.

I have been drinking it with cold milk blended with ice. Feels more summery.
The mocha flavor seems like it would be good. I have some boysenberry and cotton candy on the way to add to my caramel. I would love to do a flavored matcha swap sometime to find more flavors that I like without having to buy.

SIPDOWN! (221 for anyone counting….)

oh man terri..this one is great! It’s the deliciousness of mint and a black tea without that icky film on the top of the tea that so many mint chocolate blends have. it’s also a black tea, so that makes me happy. For sure prefer this to read my lips from david’s tea – this is a darker chocolate and makes me happy. May have to pick up some more of this…in june. bah!

Sil

i like that it’s clearly a dark chocolate and not milk chocolate

Terri HarpLady

As a dark chocolate lover, I relate!

drank Chocolate Chai by Adagio Teas

sipdown thanks for sharing this with me terri! the last little bit of your tea. Sadly i don’t get much in the way of chocolate from this but it’s not a bad little chai.

Terri HarpLady

I didn’t really dig that one too much, but my son Leif loved it!
Glad you enjoyed it :)

drank Piña Colada by PureAromaTea

I figure what the hell, let’s just have some more coconut! oooooh see this? this really is a delicious pina colada like drink. I can taste the pineapple! and the coconut isn’t overwhelming…yes. i must try this cold brewed! Seriously? I am really digging these teas from purearoma. While not all of them have been out of your world knock your socks off, these are some really nicely blended teas that are better than your average tea company in canada/US, at least in my opinion so far. This one leaves a bit of a dryness in my mouth when i drink it but it’s pineapple! and coconut! but not that artificially gross coconut taste. mmmmmmmmm……….

Sil

It’s worth a try if you ever order from them :)

drank Green up your life! by PureAromaTea

SIPDOWN! on this one as well tonight as the rest of it is going off to a lovely home. :) I think this may be a potential re-order for the summer, though i’m sad to say i forgot to try cold brewing this ever. The strawberry is refreshing and the green tea doesn’t get on my nerves :)

drank Irish Breakfast by Adagio Teas

sipdown!

this is a very middle of the road average ordinary every day tea. Nothing much going on, but nothing to offend either. I’d drink it, but i wouldn’t order it since there are many more fabulous irish breakfast teas out there that make for a little more OOMPH in my day :)

BoxerMama

I feel like you exclusively do sipdowns! lol

Sil

boxermana…these days it’s a little of that lol mostly because i have so many small samples from terriharplady. I try to mix them up with the occasional none sipdown as well though. IE the other week when i did butiki teas heh

BoxerMama

lol! I when I was digging for chamomile I found sooooo many samples that I didn’t know existed, including ones on my shopping list!

Sil

LOL see i don’t have that trouble yet. 200 ish teas and i know where everything else and what i have.

BoxerMama

Not I! lol

Sil

some non sipdown posts just for you today…followed by some sipdown posts as well since i promised myself at least one a day hahaha

sipdown!

this tea confuses me. It’s smokey but is also full of berry? There’s something in the blend as well that is making me sneeze but i couldn’t tell you what. Overall this is a pretty tasty blend though i think i prefer my smoke without the berry flavour. I do like the texture of this smoke however. I also don’t really grasp the vanilla that is hiding in here somewhere. However, this was an excellent large sil mug full of fun! Thanks terri!

drank Coconut Oolong by The London Tea Room
4669 tasting notes

oh god. i don’t know what’s worse…the oolong or the coconut. DEAR GOD NO! :) sooo sample from terri, and even though i was pretty sure that was going to be my reaction, i figured what the heck, i’ll give it a try. Especially after quite enjoying the coconut mango tea from last night.

the rest of this is going to kittenna whether she wants it or not…because i said so. Only enough for a cup but it needs a good home.

So sorry terri…lol at least i tried! not rating this since it really is because of my preferences and NOT because this is a terrible cup of tea.

whatshesaid

did you like the davidstea version??

Sil

Um never tried it…being coconut and oolong lol

whatshesaid

Ah ok, you hate it that much eh? Too bad!

Sil

i dislike most coconut…i really don’t like green oolongs 90% of the time…together? ick. but oh man. loving the pina colada tea i’m having tonight!

whatshesaid

Funny how tastes are different! I love my coconut oolong, it’s in my top five for sure :)

Stephanie

I love coconut oolong but I’ve never tried this one

SIPDOWN! and thanks to terri for this one, as is usually lately heh. Had this earlier in the afternoon as well. The aroma of this one was much like loashan black. It sort of tripped me out a little. The tea did not have the same depth that loashan black does, but this was almost like it’s milder more golden second cousin. heh. I quite enjoyed this one even if there is a bit of a floral note at the end of the sip. No oonlongy taste here for me though so that makes me a happy camper!

drank Red Berries by PureAromaTea
4669 tasting notes

SIPDOWN!

I tried the last of this as a cold brew and to be honest? I think i like this better as a cold brew. The hibiscus didn’t turn the cold brew into a sour cup of red. Instead this was just a mild red brew that tasted quite nice. The cold brew sort of evened out the berry flavour and it almost reminded me of cherry jello but with the flavour backed off. lol

Preparation
Iced 8 min or more
