This is a cold brew win with a bit of sweetener in my books….not so much without it :) another 52 tea for today in my continuing quest to sip them down! Lots left of this one but its tasty drinking it :)

drank Black Raspberry by Trail Lodge Tea

I cold brewed this the other night to see how it worked out. Seems that this is a tea better suited to hot brewing and then maybe cooling it off to drink cold. It’s not bad this way, but i prefer the hot brew i made the other day. good to know though as i do like this one from terri :)

Preparation
Iced 8 min or more

drank Indian Spice by Harney & Sons

Thank you fiddling! I made a cup of this today to help kick start my day. After yesterday’s cleaning and running around, we’re just hitting costco today and then maybe playing some board games to relax once we get home. We bought two new ones yesterday and there are a few in on the shelf we haven’t played through already. lol tough part is finding friends who are willing to come over and play a game for an hour or so…so sad!
However, since both my other half and i are only children, we have no issues playing through a game on our own with ephelant and helen the corduroy dinosaur. :)

This tea? not bad, though there are other chai’s i would drink first. I think this one might be better steeped in milk with a splash of honey so that will be the next way that i try it :)

We had family night for years, still do, but it is no longer game night. But when my son comes home, you bet we will be playing games. Do you play Settlers of Catan? That and Scrabble are two favorites, but UNO, Yahtzee, Phase 10, MtG, Monopoly, and many more are on shelf and enjoyed!

We play settlers, though less often since we have 50+ other euro games on the self. Still a good one though! My other half keeps telling me we just need to have kids and then wait 7 years lol

Nobody’ll play with me at home any more :(
(Yet another reason I teach fifth graders on Sundays—-weekly kid fix.)

Sil

Aw…gmathis…that’s sad! I have my other half…so we are gradually amassing a collection of two player games.

drank Morning Sun by Mandala Tea

So i’m pretty sure my taste buds need a health check this morning. This came across as a smokey tea…more like a cross between a keemun and a lapsang. I don’t think it’s been contaminated but i’m going to have to hold off on rating this until i can make another few cups heh

Had a cup of this last night to continue with operation 52 teas! lol This time i made it as a latte and boy was that good! The milk added a certain creaminess that made this even more delicious :) I think the rest of it will all be had the same way

drank Butterbeer by 52teas
5236 tasting notes

SIPDOWN! (222) Another i finished off yesterday that was delicious! I actually tried this one in my new ZOKU slushie maker and had a blast with it. My next attempt will be at a creamier sort of tea i think. Maybe some of those mint teas + milk heh.

Overall, i’m happy with this one as a rootbeer tea and might even consider re-ordering if it ever comes back :)

drank Bai Mu Dan White Tea by Verdant Tea
5236 tasting notes

I’m going to have to give this one another try later since pretty much my feeling on drinking this yesterday was YAWN That’s right…I picked this one up to see if it was something i could offer my parents as a replacement for some of the UBER expensive teas they drank in Paris. Sadly this in no way compared to those. If anything, i’d prefer to be drinking water from a spring. At least i’ve got a bit more to try with again.

drank Easter Tea by Dammann Freres

thank you shmiracles!

Sadly i drank this yesterday while cleaning the house and got so distracted with things that i failed to register the tea i was drinking. I have more left for this one so i’ll be trying it again. This was for sure a tasty treat since i drank it all! :)

drank Laoshan Apothecary Green by Verdant Tea
5236 tasting notes

Ick. Not sure if it’s just my sample but this had an abundance of coriander, which i like just fine but in this cup from yesterday, took over everything. There was barely any mint presence or even that familiar laoshan green taste. I’ve got some left for trying a cold brew with but unless this is just my sample, this is not the tea for me. I expected a more balanced blend of mint, green, coriander and cardamon.

drank Black Beauty by Mandala Tea

Had more of this yesterday – really enjoyed getting to drink a bunch of tea yesterday while “spring” cleaning the entire house. Next few weeks are going to be a bit crazy and we have a friend coming up to visit us at the end of the month so we wanted a good solid cleaning done to make life easier for the time being. This helped me wake up and get going right away :)

I almost drank this yesterday evening, it was calling my name!

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.
