SIPDOWN! (238) And so begins the start of operation clean up. Clean up as in, drink my old teas first while working on all the small amounts of tea i have that will be done in 2-3 cups. once that’s done or at least more sorted out, i can focus on drinking the teas i’ve got in my cupboard that i haven’t even tried yet. LOL. I don’t mind this one but it’s not my favourite. I reminds me of the pumpkin caramel cheescake tea from frank but not nearly as tasty heh. overall not a bad little blend though. Thanks for sending this my way cavo!

drank Cotton Candy Black Tea by 52teas
5370 tasting notes

sooo I need to get back on track with sipping down my 52 teas so i figured i’d keep up with the cold brewing of this one. I don’t usually add things to my teas, so i suspect that’s why i didn’t like this one hot. But cold brewed, with sweetner – oh that hits the spot. It’s like liquid cotton candy. Yep. Not bad, but i’m not bumping the rating since i don’t like it hot!

Preparation
Iced 8 min or more

drank Vanilla Comoro by Harney & Sons
5370 tasting notes

thank you cavocorax for sending some of this one my way! Kittenna inspired me to try this out tonight which is good because it’s also a close sipdown haha soon! I’ve been wanting to try this one for a while now. I’m not sure what i expected from this one since it is my first decaf black tea. I feel like tea shouldn’t be decaf for whatever reason so yeah.

Overall this isn’t bad. I still think that unless i’m pregnant or something where i need to restrict my caffeine intake, i’d rather just drink a regular old black tea. I might try H&S’s normal vanilla and see how that compares.

On the whole though? this isn’t half bad. It’s not quite what i want. I’d for sure drink this again, but i don’t know that i’d keep it on hand, unless i needed none caffeine options. But for now? i don’t so ha! lol

Thanks Cavo!

I’m not big on decaf either, but I love black tea, and sometimes I really crave it before bed. ( Who am I kidding? I always want it). Some nights I don’t want to risk not being able to sleep!

Sil

i always risk it! bwahahahahaha

Rosehips

I’m a big fan of the Vanilla Black from Harney. I’ve always got some around, if you ever want to try a swap for some.

Sil

thanks rosehips! I may take you up on that offer once i get myself a little more settled with my cupboard. I have just a “few” teas i need to drink down first haha

sipdown! (239) Another one from my swap with shmiracles and i have to say this one has grown on me the second time around. Bumping up the rating a little as i’m enjoying it tonight. being oolong it’ll never be my favourite but this is another that i would drink from time to time when i was crazing that green taste :)

drank Peaches and Cream by Sloane Tea Company

I made some of this at work today as a cold brew. While it’s still pretty tasty, i vastly prefer this one as a hot brew. It’s good to know though maybe a hot brew, chilled is the way to go. Good thing i have more bags to experiment with :)

Preparation
Iced 8 min or more

I looooove this one. So good!

oh man… i love this tea. I think i need to sit down with all my deliciously juicy assams and figure out which one is best. this one reminds me of the tea that i am currently lusting after from butiki (it’s almost here!!!!) though slightly different. I really like this one….it’s an assam but it’s not your typical malty, rosty dark :)

Another tea from Laurent. This was my second go at this tea and it’s just not the tea for me. this is a little better the second time but it’s not my favourite tea. i taste a lot more peach in this blend than other fruits, which is maybe why it’s not quite the tea for me. it’s a decent enough tea but as far as peach teas go, there are others i prefer. I just wish i could figure out how to get the other flavours to pop a bit more.

drank Balade a Shanghai by Nina's Paris

Another Sample from the wonderful Nina’s Tea! Seriously folks, take them up on their generous offer and try a few of their samples! because i have a number of teas on their way and because of Bonnie’s tasting not today, i was inspired to try this one out. I don’t usually drink mint teas unless they’re chocolate mint teas but i can say that this tea here is a good one! The mint in this isn’t overly intense but it’s still obviously a mint tea. I really find this to be a smooth, refreshing tea! Thank you Laurent!

I love how well balanced all their blends are :) nothing overpowering

Grand Amour is still my favorite, but I have six of their teas right now and they are all very nice.

drank Florence by Harney & Sons

thank you Cavocorax for sending a wee bit more of this my way! I still quite enjoy this one though it’s one that i’m now tempted to try as a latte and see if that is a delicious delicious tasty treat!

Cavocorax

I’m happy you enjoyed it! I really like a lot of those flavoured H&S teas, even though they probably aren’t the highest quality.

I have SO MANY tins. :P

Sil

yep! Tins are fun!

Amariel

I think I liked this one when I had a 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.
