hahaha i’m so glad you drank this today terri! Funnily enough it’s what i had first thing this morning but couldn’t find it in my cupboard – somehow missed adding this one. Couldn’t remember who the vendor was so until you posted this i couldn’t log it.

I enjoyed this one this morning but it wasn’t anything to knock my socks off. It was a good bold black to kick my morning off with no astringency. Thanks for the share Terri!

SIPDOWN! (243)
Oh man… this IS delicious. I made a cup of this to drink while i had my meeting with china tonight and sadly i didn’t get a chance to drink most of it hot. However i have to say this really does have that caramel, chocolatey taste. This is on the order list for my upcoming order from the steap shoppe.

SIPDOWN!

Thank you again mercuryhime for this wonderful tea. Bumping the rating up a little as i think i managed to actually steep this better this time around. The flavours this time were even more delightful and delicious! I really like how fresh the strawberry taste is, rather than an artificial taste. This may have to go on the re-order list for the next shared order with the girls. Really digging this.

drank Starry Night by Art of Tea

Surprise sample from tastybrew that i thought i’d have today. I have to say i really love the star shaped tea that is in this. They are super cute! I have to say this tea isn’t half bad. It reminds me of something that I just can’t place though. I’ve got a bit more that i’ll have to use to try and figure out what this reminds me of. Either way, happy to have tried this since i haven’t had a lot of teas from art of tea.

drank Cinnamon Swirl Bread by sTEAp Shoppe

dear tastybrew ZOMG! Yeah i’m still loving this. I resteeped the crap out of the little cup that i had a few days ago…. and then needed to have more today. Oh yes..you will be mine. all mine!

TastyBrew

Ha ha! I’ve tried a bunch of the sTEAp teas and this one and caramel apple are by far the best in my opinion. Another one worth trying if you’re ordering is the Thailand Chaa Khao Hoom Reistee Green Tea. Otherwise she sells very generous sample sizes of everything.

Sil

oh there will be samples of nearly everything in my cart. go big or go home! if you try everything in one order, then you KNOW what you want next time hahaha

whatshesaid

Sounds amazing!

Sil

if you don’t get your hands on some, poke me when you see me cackling at the world that my order has arrived. I will be placing and order with the Steap Shoppe for this one and sadly (or not) i’m considering picking up like 4oz so i can certainly send some your way.

I would love to try it so I will keep my eyes peeled :)

Backlogs incoming since it’s been a busy day. I’m exausted and want to go to bed but i just got off the phone with china and i really want to track my teas before i forget. :)

I have devised a plan for getting through all the teas that terri sent me by putting any random tea from her straight blacks into my morning rotation. The other tea can be whatever. This morning it was this one. Let me tell you, i’m pretty sure i really enjoyed this one as a basic breakfast tea that is a really nice even keel sort of morning tea. There is none of that morning tea acidic taste that makes me go ick.

I have one more small cup of this left that i’ll have when i have more time to sit and focus. This was soooo many hours ago. but it was good.

I keep trying to come up with a tea drinking strategy…sigh…I’ve barely started on the teas in the megabox you sent me, LOL. So many teas, so little time!

Sil

heh well i NEED to get my tea in order since it looks like we’re driving to NY and Boston for day trips next week. go go random vacation plans last minute! (aka going to harneys at the very least!)

Terri HarpLady

sounds like a relapse in the making to me ;)

Sil

drank Strawberry & Kiwi by PureAromaTea
4831 tasting notes

I’m going to have to agree with Kittylovestea on this one. Man this smells good! It’s very much a strawberry tea, rather than a strawberry kiwi but i forgive it for that because this is a delicious, delicious strawberry tea. I NEED to try this cold brew because if it’s half as good as it is hot. There’s none of the usual bitterness that i seem to find with strawberry green teas..not that this is a green tea but that’s where my mind wandered.

Right off the bat when i sipped this, it made me instantly think of snapple…strawberry kiwi snapple to be specific but without the overwhelming sweetness of snapple. Either way, this is a win because my other half liked it and will drink it in summer…baby steps after all…someday he’ll love cold tea lol

drank Caramel Cream by PureAromaTea
4831 tasting notes

I quite enjoy this one. It tastes very similar to other green caramel teas that i’ve had out there but this one has a much smoother taste to it that is just slightly more enjoyable. I’m finding that with a few of the purearoma teas. Even if the flavour is similar to other teas that i’ve had, the base tea and blending is just slightly more delicious and smoother than the other versions i’ve tried, that i’d take this version over the others. At least so far :)

Overall, a pretty tasty cup tonight for a GREEN caramel…now if only i could find the ultimate black caramel.

sipdown on this one mostly because i accidentally dropped the other cup’s worth that i could have brewed on the floor. the clean floor that my other half cleaned today. oopsy. lol

On the plus side this isn’t my favourite tea so i won’t mourn the loss, i’ll just suck it up and move on. I’m learning that i’m not overly fond of strawberry greens. I like strawberry blacks. Quelle surprise! i know. But there are good strawberry greens and average. This falls into the average category for me. Not bad…just take it or leave it kinda green and strawberry lol Thanks terri!

Terri HarpLady

I agree. I tried it, because there it was in the bulk aisle of the natural food store, & I drank a cup. I’m not really a fan of flavored green teas, but once in awhile it’s worth a try :)

Without my full morning’s caffeine hit, I was childishly amused at picturing you going to suck the spilled tea up off the floor. :P

Glad it was not a favourite that hit the floor!

Totally forgot i had this one today until i was taking the last sip out of my travel mug. This one tastes a lot like H&S’s valentine’s blend to me. It’s likely slightly different, though not so much that I can recall what about the other blend is different lol.

Which means that suits me just fine. I’m not getting the nut flavour out of this one but that might be how i steeped it. I got distracted at work and steeped it forever. I also put in twice the normal water, assuming it was like H&S sachets even though the directions are crappy and say nothing about water volume lol

Bio

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.
