sipdown! figured i needed a heartier cup of tea to get me through the airport times so i drank this up before leaving. I’ll be glad to get back to my cupboard soon!

I love this tea, I think I have had like 4 cups today…once I start drinking it I just can’t seem to stop.

Helena

yep definitely a very tasty cup of tea!

had a cup of this to work on getting through some of my smaller amounts of tea. An enjoyable cup of pear tea, though nothing to knock your socks off and write home about :)

Lala

Did you ever find the perfect pear tea?

Kamyria

I have never had a pear tea… Something I definitely have to try because I love pears. :)

Sil

Lala…not yet but i’ve had a number of delicious ones. This one is pretty tasty…and i think it was upton’s? that i liked…or maybe it was steeped and infused. something like that. heh but perfect? not yet :)

sipdown! Thank you missB for letting me try this one. I’m glad that i didn’t buy a whole tin of this as it’s a little floral for me but not so much that the occasional cup of this wouldn’t be enjoyed. Subtract a little of the rose flavour and this would be a total hit for me! thanks missb!

another sipdown for today (178) as i’ve been drinking this with focus this morning, running through a number of steepings to decide where i land on in terms of this one. Final verdict? While this is a lovely oolong, it’s still an oolong for me. So the rest of this will be going to a couple people whom i think would love to try this one.

sipdown!(179) this was one of the samples that Kallieboo! sent my way in our international christmas card swap. I have had mixed success with darjeelings but this one is wonderful! There’s a fruitiness here along with the muscatel taste. Unlike some darjeelings, there is no astringency or bitterness. I have a little bit left, which i’ll be sending over to terri to try as i think she might like this one as well :) thanks Kallieboo!

Ysaurella

so agree ! I loved this one so much, unfortunately impossible to find in Europe.

Nicole

This seems to be a darjeeling for people who aren’t enamored with darjeelings or have had bad experiences with them in the past. :)

Ysaurella

nice to begin with yes ! but now I found several Darjeelings I really enjoy :) must try Margaret’s hope now

sipdown! (180) my other morning tea while i run around panicked that i’ve forgotten something :) This morning this is malty with an edge to it that i don’t love. I don’t think i’d restock this tea even though it’s not a bad tea. just not one of my favourites. I’m happy to have been able to pick up a few teas from world of tea while in ottawa though and it looks like my dad has found it as well, since he bought be two more for christmas heh

Sipdown! (181) Since i’ll be away from my cupboard for a few days and don’t feel like going through the hassle of packing up a tea basket and such since i’m only bringing a small suitcase, i’m enjoying a few teas today as well as getting in a couple sipdowns. I fulle expect tea to show up while i’m away so i need to make sure not coming home to 200+ teas. At least i still have 3 weeks to get to 150. :)

I added a slice of orange to this one today since lala’s done that on a few occasions and i thought it would be fun to experiment with my last cup. It’s adding just a bit of sweetness, along with the orange to this cup and turning it into something entirely different and yet just as deliciously good! Maybe i’ll try a few others like that today heh…maybe.

Terri HarpLady

That’s one of the experiments I’ve been wanting to try for awhile :)

Sil

yeah same here. We have an orange that needs to be eaten so i’m steeping it, drinking the tea then eating the slice haha warm orange slice heh

Terri HarpLady

I bought an orange a few weeks back, specifically for this experiment, & somebody ate it, heh

TheTeaFairy

Unfortunately, I’ll have to take a rain check on the orange experimentation, but at least I can now add this comment: yeah, this tea is awesome!! Haha!

cup of this while finishing up the first season of fringe. I’d totally forgotten about the crazy guy who believes he’s spock. So good. lol. Packed for tomorrow and checked in for my flight so now i just have to sleep, get up and eat, drink some tea and then head to the airport. Going to be a nice relaxing sunday!

TheTeaFairy

Ok, the last thing I need is a new series to watch! Fringe is on my list though. I was told it was like the modern x-files. I do miss scully and mulder’s chemistry!

Sil

It’s different from X-files, which i watched and loved back in the day. The interaction between walter, his son, olivia etc is just as good, though different :) now that it’s over, i’m working my way through all 5 seasons, since at the time of airing i stopped after season 2 so that i would have something to buy and watch when it ended lol

TheTeaFairy

Ah, Netflix solved that problem for me…

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.
