drank Yu Lu Yan Cha Black by Verdant Tea

oh man… i am going to be so upset if the newer harvest of this that i have isn’t as awesome as this last batch…because i was NOT impressed with the first round of this…had almost decided not to bother getting it again and then…well..i love this harvest that i have. Funnilly enough the zhu rong that i got the last time, i am not a fan of and the first time i got it – it was amaaaaazing lol so harvest CAN make a difference to extremes in some cases….though generally i haven’t found huge difference like this in harvests :)

I found the same thing with zhu rong. I have yet to try my latest batch of yu lu…we’ll see…

drank Spring Fruit by TeaGschwendner
5368 tasting notes

I had this one again today as my afternoon tea while gaming. Apart from the fact that while brewing it, my entire house smells like caramel, i am a fan of the blending of sweet caramel with the “sour” fruit notes. I’m really glad i gave this one a shot even though it seemed like an odd thing to mix when i first read the description in the store :)

Final Count: Still 100 …

Lala

I remember when you were at 300 :)

Cameron B.

Whoa, 300… That makes me feel better at least. :D

Sil

Hahaha I remember when I was at 350….. Been gradually trying to get to a “reasonable” amount since then. 90 seems to be as long as I ever manage to go….but what the heck… Still trying :)

oh LB… my happy place…and when in need of an even more cocoa-y experience, jsut add a tsp of cacao to the cup and it’s amaaaazing. Please don’t ever change.

Bear With Me

Sil

drank Buttermilk Lemon by TeaGschwendner
5368 tasting notes

tried this one again today and i’m still undecided, which is sad because i bought 100g of it, for whatever reason…it smelled good? other ppl reviewed it favourably? I’m pretty sure that this won’t be a “win” tea for me..but i’ll try it a couple more times first.

Amariel

This one has intrigued me too. What is it that makes you undecided?

JoonSusanna

This sounds RIGHT up my alley- I love sour lemon flavoring. If you decide to get rid of It I’m sure I can find something to trade :)

Sil

happy to send you some regardless to try madam!

Kittenna

Buttermilk? Interesting.

drank Traditional Yunnan by RiverTea

this was another of my teas from this morning. I’m trying to spend today just enjoying whatever i feel like drinking. I might even bust out more puerh if we don’t have to go over to friends. Still enjoying this one and i’m glad that after getting a little from dexter, i was able to pick up more for myself. This is my favourite black tea from river tea so far i think, as i generally prefer their fruit teas. :)

drank White Night by Mandala Tea
5368 tasting notes

I’ve been drinking this one all morning while i had a lazy, slow relaxing restful morning. Watched a few shows since i was up early and let my other half sleep in. We’re supposed to go over to friends today when all i really want to do is sit at home watching bad or good tv drinking tea. It’s always the case after an overnight.

I adore this tea. I love the multiple steepings i get out of it, and the deliciousness of this. It’s sweet and smooth and had a lot of flavour going on – unlike most white teas that i’ve had. I know this will “turn in to a black tea” but it delivers everything that i love about the few white teas i’ve had that have been wonderful, without skimping on the fullness of the cup…if that makes sense. I’ll have to pick up more of this when i run out.

Terri HarpLady

I dont think I’ve tried this one

Sil

i’ll try to remember to add some for you… it’s a nice white tea..and you KNOW how much of a fan i am of white teas…not.

drank Golden Honey Dew by Lupicia
5368 tasting notes

someone mentioned Lupicia on facebook tonight, so this was my other tea for this evening, as i haven’t had it in a while. I picked up 100g of this last time we orderd so i’ve still got plenty. It’s a nice reminder of “summer” now that the cool air of fall has been moving in. I really love how close this is to real honey dew :)

Final Count: 100

Ost

Absolutely love this one!!

Kittenna

Is there any of this for me? If not, sample? puppydog eyes I don’t have the faintest idea what I/we ordered.

Sil

don’t remember what you ordered lol put it in your box and haevn’t looked at it in..a year? cough and this is where i say “you can have more samples once you finish what’s already on your plate missus!”

drank Sweet Helen by RiverTea

another tea from this evening. Just enjoying finishing up season one of GOT with my other half after a really long day. This is a nice pear fruit tea. I’ve picked it up a couple times now from RiverTea and it’s just what i need when i want something more like pear juice :)

Kittenna

Pear?! Argh I’ve missed so much! Looks like I need a RiverTea order.

drank Chocolate Break by Teaja
5368 tasting notes

I tried this one out tonight…yes, i’m still awake! lol this one isn’t bad it’s not as dark chocolatey wonderful as MF’s mousse au chocolat or as chocolatey as i want it to be, but it’ll do. The base is nice, and for those looking for “organic” teas, this IS that. I kind of want to try this as a latte and see if the chocolate and the base come through the milk..more to come as i play with 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.
