I had this last night, in an effort to end the night on a more positive note. I spent more than 12 hours working on christmas eve – a night when most are going home early. As a result we didn’t get out to the store to pick up last minute things for today. Not the end of the world but it made for a super long day. So i bust out two of my favourite “treat” teas to have last night. I’m almost out of this one and it WILL be a reorder. Great tea base, nice flavouring (unless you’re Justjames). it’s one of my happy places.

JustJames

JustJames

Love. this. Thank you tastybrew for picking some of this up while wandering the island. I seriously want to go to hawaii some day but this is a bit of a consolation prize ;) I am enjoying this one a ton! I managed to get a couple steeps out of this as well and it continues to be a delicious cup of sweet delicious assam. It’s not like taiwanese assams beyond not being malty :) I really just love this. i dunno what else to say hahaha

yum. cold tea. not. I made this morning after getting woken up early for issues…that are still not resolved, which has caused me to get no work done today outside of this issue. It also means i don’t have a whole lot of time for tea. I brewed this one up right away and got to drink most of it warm..but now it’s cold and sad. I also have no water in my house until they do whatever they’re doing with the water mains today so i’m trying to stretch out the water that i put in the kettle and the brita and a couple uh pots so that i could have tea today lol.

Still like this one, so it appears my tastebuds are only on strike when it comes to 49. :(

TheTeaFairy

Oh, I hope you problems will be resolved very soon…not cool on x-mas eve!

Terri HarpLady

Bummer about the water! Hang in there!

Sil

Cavocorax

Oh no. :( Hope things settle down, and your water returns.

drank Pumpkin Spice by The Republic of Tea

Terri sent this my way to let me try out the black version of this since i have the rooibos version in my house. I’m happy to say i actually prefer the rooibos version. This is nice, and i’ll likely use my last two bags from terri to try it with a bit of milk, but there’s something about the rooibos that makes this taste more pumpkin-y than the black base. Still, not a bad little bagged cup :)

drank Sweet Melody by The Tea Spot

sipdown! (167) that’s right… i was a drinking fiend today. Good thing too since i’m likely to get another package or two before the year is out. I figured i might as well drink this one too since i had sweet lullaby this evening which is almost the same tea. I think i prefer this one just a little since the hibiscus isn’t nearly as strong..though i like the intense ginger in the other a little more haha. This is a bit better balanced cup imo. Thanks for sharing terri!

Terri HarpLady

Of course! BTW, I got my order from Andrews & Dunham today :)

Sil

Woohohoo! Squaaaak!

drank Sweet Lullaby by The Tea Spot

Sipdown! I made this to drink while making gingerbread snacking cake. I have to say THIS is the right amount of ginger….however the. Hibiscus in this is too much, making it a really tart piece of tea. A little sweetner goes a long way with this one. I quite like it, but I need less hibby…and I don’t mind hibby.

Terri HarpLady

I feel like this one would be good over ice

Sil

yeah :)

needed a cup of deliciousness for the afternoon. Just about done with work and then it’s time to make a ginger spice cake for shits and giggles :)

Bonnie

My son is here from San Francisco…I think I’ll share this tea with him.

Sil

good choice bonnie!

drank The Jane Austen Mafia by Adagio Teas
6338 tasting notes

thanks cavocorax! Admittedly, i am not an adagio fangirl. While i love the packaging, i find 90% of all the teas of theirs that i have tried, to be pretty much meh. I don’t like the base for their black teas and on the whole, for the time and effort involved in getting their teas to canada, i have sooooo many other options that are easier.

all that being said, (of course) this is a tasty blend. I wish the base was a little tastier but i can deal with that. blackberry, vanilla, cream this is! :)

Cavocorax

That’s a higher rating than I expected from you. Glad it wasn’t to bad. :p

Sil

haha it was tasty… it’s just that damn base…if it was a better base it’d be like an 85.

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.
