drank Je t'Aime by Nina's Paris
7534 tasting notes

I figured i should bust this out to have again since i bought it a while back and while i blew through the japon i bought, i hadn’t even had this one yet. Not my favourite of the nin’as teas but one that i do like. I wish i could get the full caramel/vanilla intensity that i get in Japon, but in this black base. Still, it’s a nice treat to have, though maybe not a reorder by the time i finish the package heh

drank Strawberry Cream by RiverTea
7534 tasting notes

better review to come of this at a later date but i wanted to try this hand in hand with taurus to see which i preferred. this one is clearly a fruit tea :) and is “close” to strawberry but the “cream” is for sure coming through. overall a really nice tea i can see drinking cold in the summer..which is good because that’s why i picked it up!

VariaTEA

Oooh this is one I wanted to try. Glad to see it was nice.

Terri HarpLady

AND it’s summer!

Sil

VariaTEA – when you come over you can steal some :)

VariaTEA

Oooh yay!! Can I also steal some Happy Banana while I am at it?? Just a taste. Btw let me know if there is anything in my cupboard you would like.

Sil

YES! you were supposed to get that from me…yes. yes. yes. i’ll see if i can pull out a sample tonight before i forget..but if i do just keep bugging me.

VariaTEA

Yay! Thank you!!

drank Taurus by Nina's Paris

i think i’m too hot. started to write this note and now i’m not feeling well so into the cold shower i go. long story short, pulled this one out since i need to start working on Jan-march teas lol if i’m going to keep up with my goals. while theres a little more rooibos taste here than i want, it still a tasty treat

Cavocorax shared this one with me, and since it’s a new month i’m doing my best to start focusing back on all the samples i have in my cupboard. I pulled this one out because it’s got ginger, and i love me some ginger :)

on the whole, this one wasn’t bad. it’s still got that familiar adagio smell and taste but at least the ginger comes creeping through. i added a bit of actual ginger to this and that made it pop even more.

whatshesaid

Yeah. There is a specific taste and smell to Adagio teas. That’s what I don’t love.

Sil

yep – there are a few exceptions to that but mostly yes. which is why i’m not fussed about not being able to get them easily heh i can pick up the ones i like when i’m in chicago and pass on the rest or swap

drank Frankenberry by 52teas
7534 tasting notes

Another one from VariaTEA that i was looking forwrd to trying after having success with walterbishop from Frank. this smells like koolaid but tastes like a bitter fruit tea. sigh i think i need to give up at this point. Thanks for trying to help me get back into a 52 teas groove Variatea!

VariaTEA

I wasn’t a huge fan of this one either. Though I had friends who enjoyed it. I figured it was safe to assume that you hadn’t try some of the 52 Teas I had so I figured I would share even though I had a feeling you wouldn’t have loved them. You never know unless you try.

Sil

yep! i love trying new things :)

drank Banana Pudding Black Tea by 52teas
7534 tasting notes

Thanks for sending this one my way to try VariaTEA I keep trying franks teas, hoping that some of them will stick for me like they did a year and a half ago, but something’s changed as none of them are ever very appealing to me, or when they are, the reblends are never true to form. This one is more coconut than banana to me. it’s anot a bad cup of tea but i’d be hard pressed to say that this was banana anything. :(

drank Yu Lu Yan Cha Black by Verdant Tea
7534 tasting notes

Pulled this one out as well as i wanted something with a little more punch to it. I neglected to thank Courtney for this one the last time i had it, so double thanks! She sent this one my way when she decided the smokey notes in this were too much. So it’s MINE! MINE! ALL MINE! haha good times. I don’t recall this having smokey notes the very first time i had it, but not that they’re there, this makes this even tastier…for one of us :)

boychik

Lucky! This tea is great. Terri shared it with me and I’m going to reorder.

Terri HarpLady

I don’t know what happened with this tea! I really didn’t care for it initially, and it was definitely NOT smokey. And now it is. I don’t get it, but I prefer it this way, so I’m not complaining.

boychik

I like it smoky as well. Makes it more interesting.

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.
