Another one from this morning and it’s a sipdown! One less 52 tea in my cupboard though i’m terribly sad to see this one go as i love it a bunch!

drank Yunnan Impérial by Mariage Frères

Morning cup of tea as i’m trying to also rotate through some of the older teas in my cupboard as i continue my sipdown journey. I’m hoping i can hit 210 by the end of the weekend, though i’m working for part of it, so not sure how feasible that is. I’m glad my parents picked this one up for me, as i’m not sure i would have picked it up on my own. This isn’t a bold cup of tea but it is a delicious straight black.

Boiling 3 min, 0 sec

drank Pina Colada Honeybush by 52teas

52 tea of the day…getting closer to finishing off a few of the bags I have, so that’s nice. This one is a nice one to have for every now and then. It’s not something I want to drink a lot of, since I’m not a huge fan of coconut and though I DID discover in Cuba that I love piña coladas now…it turns out I’m less a fan of them hot ( but I don’t like the cold brew of this one) haha. Still though, I can understand why this one won third place :)

yyz

MMM Pina Colada’s.. Another thing that a lot of the Bartenders in Cuba will do for you if you ask is a Batido ( Basically a milk Shake). I love a Papaya Batido when I’m in a certain mood( I also had some good but odd sounding ones in Ecuador ( Avocado and Strawberry)).

Sipdown! I like this one a bunch :) I may have to put this one my rotational list just to remember to pick it up every now and then. Tooooo tired to write more. Is it bed time yet?

Teabagsipdown! Thank you for sending this one my way CHAroma! This one smelled pretty darn good. I just wish the flavour was a little stronger. I find with this one that the flavour is mostly in the tail end of the sip. However, the base of this one is pretty nice with no astringency. Overall a pretty good tea bag for those times when those are just the easiest :)

CHAroma

Hmm, I may go make this one now. Thanks for the review!

Always fun to see how people’s tastes compare :)

Nearly through the last of this. Have one other container of this cold steeping in the fridge and then it’s gone. I think that this might be one of my favourite straight teas to brew cold. There’s just something satisfying about this one – a little sugar and/or lemon and i’m golden. :)

Preparation
Iced 8 min or more

drank Organic Chocolate "O" by The Tea Spot

Another tea from the morning. I think that this one is starting to wane in terms of my love for it. Not that it’s a bad tea, but i think i like it less than i first did though. I’m not sure if it’s because i’ve been brewing it in my travel mug, so i’ll have to have another cup of this when i’m at home.

Started the morning with this delicious cup of goodness. This was one of the first teas i tried from teavivre and i still really enjoy it. Not much to say outside of that besides this is a great black that’s not astringent or bitter.

Terri HarpLady

It is! I think I may still have a sample of this around here somewhere. Did we order some?

Fuzzy_Peachkin

You read my mind this morning! This is a good one!

Sil

i don’t think we did terri but if you’ve never had it, let me know since i can certainly send you a bit. :)

Terri HarpLady

Oh, I have a sample of it!

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.
