Had another smoothie with this in the morning. Still a delicious treat, though I maintain that this is one that robust flavouring would be the way to go for me :)

Fuzzy_Peachkin

That DOES sounds quite decadent!

Terri HarpLady

I still have that little vial of matcha you sent me. I should drink that. Remind me…how do you make your smoothie?

Sil

Uh however The fancy strikes me :) milk + ice + frozen banana+ matcha. I like flavouring so I use anywhere from 1.5 to 2 tsp per cup of liquid (milk)

Cold brew of this one and I am loving it! With a bit of lemon and sugar this is the perfect basic iced tea.

Indigobloom

Formosa with lemon?! I must try this

Sil

it just adds a bit of yum to the tea. I’m sure it would be similar for most black teas that are cold brewed. it just worked really well with this one, so i’ll likely finish the rest of what i have by cold brewing heh

Indigobloom

Huh. I’ve never had lemon in anything except for black tea. My curiosity is piqued!

Terri HarpLady

I never add lemon to any of my teas, not even iced. I do, however, love lemon in my water! :)

Indigobloom

Terri, lemon water is da best!!

oh man…having a smoothie of this one today while i deal with work crap on my day off! I really want this one to be more intense in flavour. This is one that can benefit from Robust Flavouring. This will for sure be a re-order as well whenever i get through some of the many…many…flavours in my cupboard at the moment! lol

drank Chai Matcha by Red Leaf Tea
5367 tasting notes

As part of my ongoing effort to rid my cupboard of things that i don’t enjoy drinking, this one i’m having a final cup of, before sending it “back” to my pregnant friend who pawned hers off on me. haha In this way she gets interest on the tea she was storing at my place and i get one less matcha in my cupboard :)

Terri HarpLady

When’s that baby due anyway?

Sil

Haha October….very soon. She’s started being able to tolerate the smell of tea again so I see this as an opportunity for me to get it out of my house! Since I won’t drink it :)

drank Cinnamon & Spice by Compass Teas

SIPDOWN! figured this might be a tea that would cut through the weirdness my taste buds are having today. This was decent enough and i thank joonsusanna for sharing it with me :) I’ll stick with other rooibos blends for non caffeinated teas but this was still a decent cup of cinnamon-ey/spicey tea!

drank Black Beauty by Mandala Tea

I’m not sure if my tastebuds are off this morning so i’m going to with leave the rating alone. I’m glad i have enough for another attempt. It’s not a pleasant cup at all this morning, which leads me to believe that i’ve goofed on something because my first drink of this was pretty darn tasty!

drank White Christmas by 52teas

I had this earlier today. While it’s a holiday here in Canada (except for Quebec), SOME of us were rudely awoken this morning to system issues that they have since spent the better part of this GLOIRIOUSLY fabulous sunny, summer day, dealing with. Yes. I’m grumpy. And this tea didn’t help. Not sure if my taste buds are off or something but it was bitter and icky. I’m hoping it’s a one off. If it continues, i’ll adjust the rating downward.

Courtney

That’s unfortunate :( This is one of my all-time favourites. Hopefully your day picked up.

S I don’t forget, had a cup of this tonight..a single serving left before its all gone…. Wheeeee!

13 weeks until November… 221 teas less 150 over those 13 weeks is 6 sipdowns a week…. Assuming that between now and November I pick up NO new teas…which we already know isn’t going to happen since I have uh…teaspot, butiki, teavivre, verdant on their way and another butiki order as of yet to be placed…. But a girl can dream right? And scheme? :)

Terri HarpLady

You can do it! It’s just one sipdown a day!
I’m at 333 tonight, BTW, so I managed 10 sipdowns since thurs!! Let’s do this!

Ysaurella

good luck Sil, carry on and drink tea :)

Sil

Terri! For sure! Just need to get Kittenna and cavo oral on board and maybe I can manage no orders. Lol

Ysuraell – bien sur! Good thing I love teas :)

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.
