drank Imperial Keemun by SOKO Tea House
6338 tasting notes

Another tea from omgsrsly I was hoping for good things from this keemun since i do love a good keemun. However, this one comes across as a little wimpy imo. I’ve got more to play with, so i’ll see if playing around with the tea helps. I like keemuns when they’re bolder and make me pay attention. this one seemed content to just hang out :) still not a bad cup though!

OMGsrsly

(I haven’t tried this one yet.) Glad it’s ok. I should probably try it before I give it to my parents!

Sil

Clearly your cupboard isn’t up to date….I had to add two teas to the database! ;)

OMGsrsly

LOL Yeah, this one and the Yunnan. Right? I haven’t even tried them. They’re not for me, so I didn’t add them when I got home.

Sil

mmmhmmm….

OMGsrsly

Haha, sure, don’t believe me.

drank Classic Big Red Robe by Silk Road
6338 tasting notes

sample sipdown (146) on this one even though omgsrsly sent me enough for at least another cup! the reason? I’m sending this along to terri to try as well since she appreciates a good oolong much more than i do. I can say, that i i quite like this one, though as with most oolongs, i’d be hard pressed to keep it in regular rotation in my cupboard. This one has a bit of a sweet note to it along with the roasty oolong taste that i prefer a bit more than the previous teavivre oolong i had today. It was nice to be able to drink them in close timing :) thanks omgsrsly!

Woaw oolong alert! :P

My internet is being stupid today. I had this one and it’s not bad but it’s still an oolong for me. ;)

also…the new version of the app apparently seems to rate everything at 100 now..

Another sipdown from omgsrsly

Not a fan of this one..I like it a lot in theory…but they missed the boat when they decided “spiced” meant overload this with cloves. The citrusy flavour and the tea are quite nice if you can ignore the cloves. too bad…i had hopes for this one. (on a side note, why do all teabags say boiling water???lol)

drank Qing Pin Black Tea by Yezi Tea
6338 tasting notes

I had this again today because that is a semi sipdown. I’ve finished off the bit from the BBB Box that tastybrew sent us and now i just have the ounce that i recently purchased myself for black friday haha. Still a win since it’s an “older” tea out of my cupboard haha I love this one. not much more to say beyond the fact that it’s a good, tasty, tasty black and another find offering from Yezi tea. I’m glad tastybrew found them!

drank Chocolate Puerh by Numi Organic Tea
6338 tasting notes

thanks OMGsrsly! I opted for this one today because it’s an easy sipdown lol i need a few of those to get me going before more tea comes in. For a bagged tea i quite like this! It’s not overly puerh-ish but the tea is still a little present. You do need to give is a quick stir since some of the chocolate settles, but this would be good for those times when im’ at work and don’t want to fuss. appreciate the share!

OMGsrsly

This is a work tea for me. I find it can sit for ages with the tea bag in, and just needs a bit of a swirl for the (I guess) cocoa powder to resuspend. Perfect because I can’t have anything at my desk.

I picked this one up with my order of DF teas because a)i love caramel/toffee type teas and b)i need more caffeine free options in my cupboard. I figured even if i hated it, there are lots of folks here who like to try “fancy french teas” lol The good news? While it does taste a bit like rooibos in the background, it’s still a sweet, creamy, caramel like tea. Not overly so, and i prefer the black version that i also picked up, but this is great for the times when i don’t want caffeine! WIN! (especially at a mere 8 euros for shipping..)

Nxtdoor

Err… I been thinking about ordering from these guys. Wasn’t sure how it would go when credit card meets foreign currency.

yyz

I haven’t had a problem. They also acceptb PayPal if you prefer that as well.

Sil

I was going to say use paypal….also “These guys” = cadeaux vendomme not the. Actually DF site :) the one YYZ told us about!

Fjellrev

You go, girl. So many freaking teas. And that’s a fabulous tip from yyz. I’m going to have to ignore it haha.

the first of many…many teas from omgsrsly Still not feeling too hot today so i’m trying to drink a few of my caffeine free options tonight before i pass out and sleep. Down side to so many orders today? i’m at 150 again. Up side? SOOOO MANY CHOICES!

I am quite the fan of this one. It’s cranbery orange for sure, and there’s a hint of spice, though not nearly as much as i’d like there to be haha. I wish bayswater would fix up their website and make it an actual ecommerce site as they would be getting an order from me for sure. I’ll have to try this as a cold brew too at some point since it’s quite lovely!

Thanks omg!

sounds super interesting!

OMGsrsly

It is super interesting. I can’t remember if I’ve had it cold. I’m pretty sure it’s sold as an iced fruit tea.

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.
