drank Cotton Candy Black Tea by 52teas
5241 tasting notes

I realised this morning that i have a bunch of 52 teas that i don’t often drink in my cupboard. They’re not teas that i love, but they’re also not teas that i hate. Mostly they’re average teas that i just need to drink since i want my cupboard to be filled with teas that i LOVE! :)

This one is better after having sat for a while in my cupboard. I think it might be a decent cold brewed tea, though it’s not overly “cotton candy” for me. It’s more sweet black tea, if that makes sense :)

IIRC, I think this one IS better iced and more cotton candy-ish.

drank Super Fruit Sencha by Fusion Teas

SIPDOWN! (191) thanks again nxtdoor I cold brewed this overnight and i’m sipping on it this morning while i impatiently wait for my kettle to boil. I actually like this a bunch as a cold brew – moreso than most greens that i’ve cold brewed. There is no bitterness in this brew and the fruitiness of the tea complements the sencha nicely.

Good morning hump day!

drank Peppermint Patty by Butiki Teas

Final cup for the day – very nearly a sipdown but i can’t be upset since i’m sure i’ll order more. I love having a mint, chocolate option that’s not a black tea base :)

Cavocorax

I almost bought some a few days ago due to the sale, and only stopped bc my order cost as much as the shipping. :p I’ll just have to wait for a bigger order!

Having a cup of this tonight to try and have some caffeine free options tonight. I love this option from della terra. Between this one and the lime chiffon, it’s all i could need from them :)

I’ve come to the conclusion that this is a winter tea. I’ve also realized that while I love licorice….I like chewing it. This is a great tea! The flavouring is totally black licorice goodness…my favourite kind! But a “normal” sized cup is good enough for a sitting and I really want it to be cold out when I drink it…likely the whole chai thing :) still though? I love this and I’m happy I have it. Love the ideas that come from Stacy’s customers – especially when they’re fellow steepsterites :)

drank Kamba Berry by Butiki Teas

Having a butiki evening apparently as I’ve got this one and another 2 going to be happening :) I’m trying to work on finishing up those few butiki teas that I only have a little bit left of, so that once Stacy posts the last few new teas coming up, I can place an order to pick up the new teas and restock my old favourites. This one is for sure a summer tea. I think I like this best hot brewed and then cooled down with a splash of sugar. I’m still not a fan of the sludge it leaves in my brew basket but that, I can get over. A sour, fruity blend – I’m a fan :) though its not a winter blend for me

drank Ripe Raspberry by Kally Tea

sipdown! (albeit a fake-ish sort of one since i’m passing the rest off to an office mate who loved the cup i made for her…which is good because i don’t like this nearly as much as i initially did.)

Edit: i’m at 192 for those curious as to where i’ve manage to land…however i fully expect that will go up shortly as i get to open my birthday order this saturday AND i think another package showed up today, that i can pick up tomorrow…wheee!

drank Black Currant by Fusion Teas
5241 tasting notes

SIPDOWN! So i was right…this IS tasty as a cold brew. I think i like this better than H&S in both hot and cold forms which is good to know. But this is also for sure a much fruitier blend than H&S – the focus being on the flavour rather than the tea base. thanks again nxtdoor for this one!

Preparation
Iced 8 min or more

SIPDOWN! (thanks again tattoed_tea!)
I really do enjoy this one and i’m super glad to have more shared with me! It’s sweet, it’s slightly tart but mostly it’s just a delicious herbal blend that is tasty good :)

drank Hazelnut Honeybush by Fusion Teas
5241 tasting notes

forgot i had this one yesterday as well. Thanks nxtdoor I think i rather like this one. i think it would probably make a really good tea latte. The hazelnut taste in this one is pretty nice and i do like that it’s a honeybush. I don’t think i would like this as much as a rooibos as there would be that danger of the woodys taste coming through. instead the honeybush here adds a bit of depth to the hazelnut taste. thanks nxtdoor!

So far this is my favourite from Fusion Teas. I made an entire order just because I had to have more of this. Thanks to Dexter3657 for introducing me to this via sample. :)

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.
