SIPDOWN! Because you know what u can taste while sick? CHAI! oh yeah baby! spices coming through doing the happy dance. So i’ve been drinking this most of the afternoon – resteeps are pretty darn delicious. I like this better now that I’m sick lol so it’s nice to have a really good happy moment with this one.

Mayan Chocolate Chai with its heavy cayenne kick = even better when sick :D

No real tasting notes today since i’m still not sure my tastebuds are back to normal. I tried this one today since i figured maybe a hearty bold tea would cut through things. That seems to have worked as this seems like a really nice tea. soooo yay for getting to drink a few things today!

Not going to rate this one since i know my tastebuds are wonky. i think? This is a relatively tasty “every day black” but i’ll wait until i’m not having issues to be certain :) still, it’s keeping me warm and that’s all that matters to me at this point.

Had this today…another indication that my taste buds are wonky, so no new teas for me today apart from the black i chose this morning. No point since everything is tasting strange.

drank Good Morning Sunshine by Butiki Teas
4034 tasting notes

thought this would be nice to sip on for my throat while getting ready for work. Apparently i’m sick because my tastebuds were like um no…what IS this? i drank it anyway because i know it’s a great cup, but i’m clearly not feeling well.

SIPDOWN! (cause the rest is going to Kittena..THIS WEEKEND!!!!) yeah what can i say? I’m a wee bit excited at the prospect of board games and tea nerding out. And then the following weekend i get to go tea nerd out some more at toronto’s tea festival. Should be a great time! Still enjoying this one even if i did let it get too cold while i was on the phone…talking….so much talking…and planning wheee!

drank Lemon Chiffon by Della Terra Teas

SIPDOWN!

Though I may need to restock this as it’s pretty enjoyable. Had some of this tonight while on the phone for work with China. Yeah that’s right…I’m going to china for work! lol Not for a little bit, but i’m hoping that I can have at least one night out to go exploring to fine at least ONE tea shop while i’m there. :) In any case..tried to have some low caffine options tonight since i really need sleep tonight since work has been stupidly busy this week!

MissLena

This is my staple rooibos :D although that lime chiffon is tempting me on DT site…might have to get a sample to compare them hehe

Sil

That’s on my list next time I do a try me pack. I think I’m good for another 15 or so samples so I’m trying to hold off for a few lol

MissLena

Haha nice, yeah I can’t order tea until Feb at least now..been going too crazy at my local DAVIDsTEA :( haha

drank Zulu Chai by Assam Tea Company
4034 tasting notes

This is an interesting chai. I’m not sure it’s how i’d prefer to drink my chai and with milk, the balance might be a little better. What i’m enjoying about this one is that it’s caffeine free AND it’s not overly – clove-y. I do like cloves and cinnamon in my chai but i like that this one is different than the other chais that i’ve tasted in that regard. There is a bit of something in it that tickles my nose a bit as a drink it, but over all it’s neat.

Bio

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.
