drank Ginger Peach by The Tea Spot
4704 tasting notes

Fine. Look at me being the first to review this, though how that makes sense I dunno.

Anyway this tea? Man i wish it was a Pear tea, because this ginger is spot on for what i’ve been wanting in a ginger pear tea. It’s got just a small kick to it to say HEY i’m ginger! which helps balance and offset the sweetness of the peach. Overall i’m a fan of this.

I didn’t review this yet? I guess I’m slacking!

drank Organic Chocolate "O" by The Tea Spot
4704 tasting notes

I’m thinking that the tea spot and i are going to have to have a chat soon about putting some of their teas into my house. Terri was awesome enough to send me a bunch of their teas and I’m thoroughly enjoying a bunch of them. I’d take tea spot teas over tealux teas every day! (and no i have no idea why the two are comparable in my mind) I wanted a cup of this without any additions but i for sure can see how amaaazing this will be with a bit of sweetner and possibly milk added to it.

Without additions this is a cocoa chocolate malty delicious sort of tea. Kittenna better be careful or i’ll steal her samples that Terri sent along. :)

Edit: This resteeps really nicely too!

Preparation
Boiling 4 min, 30 sec

Sil

Terri HarpLady

Yay! Glad to hear you like it!

Sipdown! 276….

Tried this cold brew with the last little bit that I had. It’s not too bad but overall I’m ok with this being gone from my cupboard. There are better blueberry teas that I love a lot more :)

drank Caramel Cocoa Loco by Kally Tea
4704 tasting notes

Mmm still find this one quite tasty :) I like what’s going on with all of the bits that are in this one. Busy working from home while also trying to re-organize my teas cupboards. Figured i’d take some time to revisit a few teas that have been in there that i haven’t had in a while. That way i can figure out if they need to be swapped out or if i need to put them somewhere i’ll drink them more often :)

TastyBrew

Was curious about “all of the bits” in this so I read the description of the tea and it sounds great! If you have more of this I’ll have to try it in our next swap!

Sil

for sure…guess we should start a list in pm’s huh? lol

drank Mango Tango by The Tea Spot
4704 tasting notes

Thank you Terri!
I have a feeling that this tea will be wonderful iced. It’s not bad hot, but the flavours are slightly muted. As it’s cooling, the flavours are coming out a bit more. I also added a little sweetner to the cup and now the mango is more present. Looking forward to using the last of my sample from terri for a cold brew :)

this is pretty interesting. It’s not exactly cake in the way that say della terra’s upside down cake is, but there’s still a cake like feel to this. The base isn’t too astringent and the combination of the cinnamon and vanilla together makes for a neat blend. It’s not quite a dessert like tea but it is a sweet tasty tea.

drank Russian Maple Souchong by Tealux
4704 tasting notes

oh man… so glad i read my previous tasting notes. For some reason i thought i hadn’t tried this before. Turns out i had, and i pondered what adding some maple syrup to this would do. So i did. and guess what? I totally just drank the entire cup quick like a bunny. I’m in heaven! this is ssssoooooo good with the added maple syrup. Hells yeah! I’m totally dancing in my chair. I wish i’d sent you some of this terri. on it’s own it’s so not this good, but man this maple syrup in it is KICKING IT! totally just brings the blend together. woot!

oh yeah…and yes, today is work from home day so YAY for overload on tea drinking!

Edit: Not bumping the rating on this up because the tea itself isn’t delicious by itself.

Terri HarpLady

Oh we’ll, we’ll just have to do another trade, hehehe :)

sooo this is pretty much a coconut tea. There might be a hint of vanilla hanging around to cut the edge of the coconut but i am not picking up any of the apple bits. It’s not a bad tea but i was hoping for so much more from a “eleven” tea. Actually, stick dr who on anything and i want it to the best damn thing in this world. :) not bad, but not as wonderful as i hoped that it would be.

thanks again Terri!

Hesper June

Well…honestly, what flavor could they do?
Fish Sticks and Custard? ;)

Sil

Lol that sort of appeals to me a little…

Hesper June

Oh, yeah. I would certainly be ordering some to try too:)
But, it would take a brave tea company to attempt that flavor;)

Uniquity

11 is not coconut (for me). Something classic and aged. Maybe a puerh. He’s kicked around a lot but he’s still got some spunk most of the time. Maybe an earl grey puerh if such a thing existed.

drank Blackberry by Adagio Teas
4704 tasting notes

Oh adagio….how i hate your black base. This smells divine! It even tastes quite delicious, until that black bitterness hits. I’m going to try the last of this cold brewed so that I can see if that helps at all. Overall, this isn’t a bad tea, it just needs to be with another base…not adagio lol

Edit: as the tea cools off it loses that icky adagio black taste, so i’m hoping the cold brew will be delicious since the fruity aspect of this tea is pretty tasty!

Thank you Terri!

I’ll have to try this one iced with the remainder of my samples from Terriharplady I don’t typically enjoy white teas as they’re too light for my taste but this one isn’t half bad. The tangerine taste in here is really light but it IS present.

Terri HarpLady

I still haven’t tried that one, or the strawberry green either.

Sil

hey look.. you’re awake! grin it’snot too shabby for a white :)

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.
