thanks to indigobloom for a sample of this one. Once again i am underwhelmed by another tea emporium selection. they just don’t seem to have it going on for my tastebuds. At least this one doesn’t taste BAD but it’s very much an average cup of tea. There’s a sweetness to this one along with a roastiness.

mmmm finally got a chance to sit down with this one. I am a fan! it’s one of those kick in the face sort of teas that is bold and strong and very much a BLACK tea! I think i may hold on to this one and not let my parents have it lol. they have plenty of others coming from me heh

Sipdown! Another tea i’m sharing with my parents this weekend. I’m not a big fan of english breakfast teas but this one isn’t bad. There’s a taste in here that i’m not a fan of but i can’t place it today. Overall though a nice enough blend that i think my parents will really enjoy trying!

Preparation
Boiling 4 min, 0 sec

drank Strawberry Cream by The Tea Grotto

oh man! Thank you Kallieboo! Holy crap this is a tasty green tea. I’ve sort of gotten used to all strawberry greens tasting the same and this one is for sure not like all others. I ended up drinking this one down super fast and found myself surprised when i hit the end of the cup without realising it! I’ll have to do a cold brew with the other bit of my sample, but this just might have to go on my list of teas to pick up later. it’s a creamy strawberry yummy tea! And the rice is an interesting take :)

Hmm, I may need to mark this one down too. I have also given up on strawberry greens for the most part, but I always feel like it should be a delicious flavour combo…

I Put the rest of it in to your bag of tea goodies lol

drank Organic Sparrow Tongue by Butiki Teas

SIPDOWN! I brewed a cup of this one as a goodbye because i’m giving the last 2 cups that i have to my dad to try out. He’s driving my mother insane with his new found love of loose leaf tea which mom blames on me. They recently went to paris, got to experience a real tea ceremony and came home with a price list of some company in france who will not take online orders, and you basically have to phone the order in. I get the impression it’s like a higher end/bigger scale type place like verdant or some others. They bought me tea from there, so that should be interesting. In any case, i’m trying to find some other options for them that are closer to home lol

I think my mom will like this one. It’s an excellent green oolong that i love! It’s got honey notes, and it’s floral and mostly it’s a cup of delicious!

thank you kallieboo for a sample of this one! I’ve got a bunch of tasting notes to catch up on since i got distracted organising my itunes and backing up my computer. Lots of silly things that i’ve been doing today.

This one isn’t bad. I’m not as in love with it as a number of people are, but it’s nice to finally try this. I like the marshmallow/mint combination.

sipdown (280) Another thanks to terri that i’m getting to try. I know i’m bringing home at least 3 teas this weekend from my parents place so i need to get down at least another 3 after this so that i feel like i’m making progress in getting to 200 lol.

This is a neat blend because it’s got a variety of teas in it. it’s a bit astringent but not overly so.

Sipdown! And thank you to Terri for this one. My other half wanted coffee this morning but we’re out so I made a pot of this in case he wanted some. It’s not a bad tea…sort of an average everyday kinda tea. There are other bagged teas I’d have before this one though, so I’m not sure if that’s saying much. Still though, another one to cross off my list! Woot!

This was handy when I went to the family reunion & ran out of black tea, LOL. I had to use 2 bags at a time to get a really decent cup though. :)

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.
