drank Chilli Chai by Teapigs

mmmmm thank you Scheherazade for this one! It was a bit overpowering in terms of smell when i opened up the swap, but luckily it didn’t manage to contaminate the other samples that were along for the ride. :)

I tried this one tonight and overall it’s a very pleasant chai. I’m not getting overly spicey from it, but it’s different enough from the other chai’s that i like to possibly warrant having more of this around in future. I also have another bag that i can try later this week to see how it goes if i let it steep for even longer. :)

Preparation
Boiling 5 min, 0 sec

SIPDOWN!

Thank you Scheherazade for this one! I had this as a cold brew with dinner and man it was tasty! The only down side? as a cold brew it pretty much smells like a dog’s butt. So my other half wouldn’t even try it :( I liked it though!

Preparation
Iced 8 min or more

mmmm had a delicious cup of this in the morning as well. I’m not actively trying to sip this one down but it would be nice to get to one bag lol. I have 2 at the moment and my cupboard is half butiki heh

drank Valentine's Blend by Harney & Sons

SIPDOWN! sad to see this one go but i’m hoping the chocolate tea that i picked up in my swap will be at least a suitable replacement for this one at work. I love the sachets for when i’m too busy to have to watch steep times in the kitchen :)

heh missed my 1400 tasting note mark yesterday. I was soooo exausted. Today is a little better and so far no major issues so I might get work done. Lots of work to wrap up this week though given how behind i am. I’m greatful to be starting the day with this matcha and a couple of other teas :) YAY new work week!

sipdown! 231 teas and counting! I’m beginning to think i might prefer the lime chiffon over this one but i’m not entirely sure. i meant to do a side by side comparison but totally forgot. maybe next time heh.

I doubt that very much, but hey at least this is motivation for me to get my butt under 200 ASAP.

drank Raspberry Vanilla by Yumchaa

another delicious tea from Scheherazade I steeped this one for 6+mins and i’m pretty sure that longer would make it even better. Falling asleep at the moment but this one was a tasty raspberry tea, blending lovely with the vanilla.

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.
