sipdown (149) Thankfully I’m staying on top of my teas, though i’ve still got another 27 to drink up at the very least before the last of my orders get here! Good thing being sick hasn’t affected my tastebuds AND i’ve got the weekend to relax and do nothing :)

I tried the last of this cold brew and the final verdict is that i like this much better hot. Though, that being said, if i steeped it hot and let it cool off it might be tasty :) See previous notes, but this is a tasty tea (and green to boot!)

Preparation
Iced 8 min or more

I like it better hot, also, which I find surprising, because I think it lends itself to being cold. But I agree, better hot.

Delicious cup of tea from this morning. I opted to try and come in to work today, which likely isn’t the best idea but i needed to actually talk to a couple of people. At least this weekend’s release is during the day so i can relax and sleep in between testing.

still loving this…need to restock soon!

nom nom nom. I really need to try this as a latte just for funsies. Still loving the option for non black blends so i’m glad i got this one. At this rate though, i’ll be finished up the 100g in no time flat :)

I want a latte…hmmm…got some coconut milk in the frig…
rummaging through cupboard for something that would be tasty & caffeine free…

oh man… speaking of orange creamsicles….i so wish this tea tasted exactly like it smells…but it doesn’t ‘cause it’s chocolate and orange. But man, ditch the chocolate and THIS would be it.

Now…having said that. YES! i am a fan! I have no issues with rooibos so it’s game on for me.. orange and cocoa and soooo good! Glad i picked this one up during my winner’s fauchon splurge :)

Dexter3657 was kind enough to send some my way, and I agree, this one’s lovely!

Cavocorax

Oh! I can’t wait to try this!

I’m not really sure what possessed me to buy an entire tin of a white tea. But i did. I think i was carried away with that whole FAUCHON! at winners! stupidly cheap prices! GO! so now i have a huge tin of this. And i don’t really like white teas…

but this tea? I like it! so ha! I couldn’t drink this everyday but it’s certainly a tasty tea. Creamy vanilla delicious tea with a splash of “wake up! it’s lemon!” :) Yep…i will enjoy this, though it may take me the whole year to drink it.

Tuscanteal

I had this tin in my hand when I was buying fauchon and then put it back for the same reason. I don’t drink much white tea. I regret not getting it to even try it, but oh well

Peter

If it’s white tea, what is the quality of the leaves? Whole or mostly broken?

Sil

more whole than broken? :)

BrewTEAlly Sweet

I may have to swap you for some :) this sounds perfect for my 4am early morning shifts :)

Sil

i’m open to that. I like new teas…just won’t be organised to be doing a swap until January but poke me then for sure!

(tuscanteal – offer is open to you as well if you just want to be able to try it)

Sil

…and uh peter too if that’s what you were after when inquiring about the leaves lol

Peter

The leaves, the leaves, look at the leaves. (Little Britain :-) I was just curious. Not my cup at all.

Sil

haha :)

BrewTEAlly Sweet

Awesome! Ha ha I’m in the same boat! January is perfect! Yay I can’t wait!

Terri HarpLady

You can also toss a bit in my box :)

Sil

terri – this is one of the teas that will all be part of the christmas BBB Box from me haha

Sil

(i said whatever to that whole non flavoured because it’s spiffy christmas holiday time!)

Terri HarpLady

(Hey, we can do whatever we want…it’s our box, right?)

I had this in the afternoon as well – i’d forgotten how much i love this, which i think i say nearly every time i drink it haha. Just a happy tea to drink when i’m looking for a non black tea.

BrewTEAlly Sweet

I am so jealous how you get through so many teas in one day. I envy you!!!

Sil

Heh well work from home days and weekends yes :) normal days = not as many. I’m also lucky in that caffeine doesn’t see. To affect me….at least in tea heh. Coffee is another story :)

BrewTEAlly Sweet

I seem to be the same way with the caffeine in tea. Ha ha ya coffee gives me the shakes ha ha. I try so hard to at least drink one tea a day. My 2 days off….. oh man! All hell breaks loose and I’m a mad man with tea!

Terri HarpLady

It’s been awhile since I had this one. I think I liked Watermelon Xylo better, but they were both tasty!

Amariel

I really love this one.

Roswell Strange

I agree with Terri, Watermelon Xylophone was the better one to me (even though they were both good). Although, that might boil down to my preferring watermelon to cantaloupe in general as far as actual fruit goes.

Amariel

See, now I prefer this over WX.

had a cup of this in the afternoon to try and ease back on my tea drinking for this evening. Not because the caffeine is bothering me but just so that i don’t have to pee every 5 seconds heh. I’ve got a little bit left of this that i’m tossing in the fridge to cold brew since i’ve been meaning to try that for a while yet. Plus it gives me one more tea to be nearly done :) My only complaint with this tea is that i want a teeeeeny bit more ginger!

Fjellrev

Fully agree on the ginger!

I found more of this lurking in my cupboard, though i thought i had finished this up ages ago. I’m fighting something at the moment so i figured this was the perfect time to really finish it off :) Of course it also makes me want to go pick up more of verdant’s elderberry herbal to drink 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.
