Sipdown! 276….

Tried this cold brew with the last little bit that I had. It’s not too bad but overall I’m ok with this being gone from my cupboard. There are better blueberry teas that I love a lot more :)

drank Caramel Cocoa Loco by Kally Tea

Mmm still find this one quite tasty :) I like what’s going on with all of the bits that are in this one. Busy working from home while also trying to re-organize my teas cupboards. Figured i’d take some time to revisit a few teas that have been in there that i haven’t had in a while. That way i can figure out if they need to be swapped out or if i need to put them somewhere i’ll drink them more often :)

TastyBrew

Was curious about “all of the bits” in this so I read the description of the tea and it sounds great! If you have more of this I’ll have to try it in our next swap!

Sil

for sure…guess we should start a list in pm’s huh? lol

drank Mango Tango by The Tea Spot

Thank you Terri!
I have a feeling that this tea will be wonderful iced. It’s not bad hot, but the flavours are slightly muted. As it’s cooling, the flavours are coming out a bit more. I also added a little sweetner to the cup and now the mango is more present. Looking forward to using the last of my sample from terri for a cold brew :)

this is pretty interesting. It’s not exactly cake in the way that say della terra’s upside down cake is, but there’s still a cake like feel to this. The base isn’t too astringent and the combination of the cinnamon and vanilla together makes for a neat blend. It’s not quite a dessert like tea but it is a sweet tasty tea.

drank Russian Maple Souchong by Tealux
4862 tasting notes

oh man… so glad i read my previous tasting notes. For some reason i thought i hadn’t tried this before. Turns out i had, and i pondered what adding some maple syrup to this would do. So i did. and guess what? I totally just drank the entire cup quick like a bunny. I’m in heaven! this is ssssoooooo good with the added maple syrup. Hells yeah! I’m totally dancing in my chair. I wish i’d sent you some of this terri. on it’s own it’s so not this good, but man this maple syrup in it is KICKING IT! totally just brings the blend together. woot!

oh yeah…and yes, today is work from home day so YAY for overload on tea drinking!

Edit: Not bumping the rating on this up because the tea itself isn’t delicious by itself.

Oh we’ll, we’ll just have to do another trade, hehehe :)

sooo this is pretty much a coconut tea. There might be a hint of vanilla hanging around to cut the edge of the coconut but i am not picking up any of the apple bits. It’s not a bad tea but i was hoping for so much more from a “eleven” tea. Actually, stick dr who on anything and i want it to the best damn thing in this world. :) not bad, but not as wonderful as i hoped that it would be.

thanks again Terri!

Hesper June

Well…honestly, what flavor could they do?
Fish Sticks and Custard? ;)

Sil

Lol that sort of appeals to me a little…

Hesper June

Oh, yeah. I would certainly be ordering some to try too:)
But, it would take a brave tea company to attempt that flavor;)

Uniquity

11 is not coconut (for me). Something classic and aged. Maybe a puerh. He’s kicked around a lot but he’s still got some spunk most of the time. Maybe an earl grey puerh if such a thing existed.

drank Blackberry by Adagio Teas
4862 tasting notes

Oh adagio….how i hate your black base. This smells divine! It even tastes quite delicious, until that black bitterness hits. I’m going to try the last of this cold brewed so that I can see if that helps at all. Overall, this isn’t a bad tea, it just needs to be with another base…not adagio lol

Edit: as the tea cools off it loses that icky adagio black taste, so i’m hoping the cold brew will be delicious since the fruity aspect of this tea is pretty tasty!

Thank you Terri!

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 2 min, 30 sec

I’ll have to try this one iced with the remainder of my samples from Terriharplady I don’t typically enjoy white teas as they’re too light for my taste but this one isn’t half bad. The tangerine taste in here is really light but it IS present.

Terri HarpLady

I still haven’t tried that one, or the strawberry green either.

Sil

hey look.. you’re awake! grin it’snot too shabby for a white :)

drank Meditative Mind by The Tea Spot
4862 tasting notes

oh Terri….i tried. For you, i tried. I pulled this one out of the box of samples that Terri sent me after seeing Dinosara’s post about rose tea. I warned Terri and promised myself whatever she sent i would try. So try i did! For the record? I’m sure this is a lovely tea if you enjoy licking flower beds ;) Ok so it’s not that bad, but floral teas are truly not up my alley. If i rated this purely on the basis of how pretty it is, it’d be up there in terms of rating. As it stands, i’m not going to rate it because i don’t like floral teas. In an attempt to try and provide some unbiased feedback – this is a smooth tea that captures that rose essence. Additionally, if you like jasmine pearls, the rose in this blends really nicely with it.

Thanks Terri!

Dinosara

Haha, one of my favorites. :D

Sil

of course it is….of course it is LOL

Terri HarpLady

I originally bought this one (years ago) because it’s just so beautiful to look at! Amazingly beautiful! It’s one of those teas you just have to brew in glass, so you can watch the rosebuds & pearls swimming around, LOL. During those days (seems so long ago) I was a vegan, I had green tea & fruit for breakfast most day, & this was one of my go-tos.
I still enjoy it! It’s one of the few flavored greens I like, & although I don’t drink it often, I’ve now purchased it more than once. I figured it would be a “no” for you, but it’s good to take a walk on the wild side once in awhile! I applaud your bravery! And your honesty, LOL!

Sil

someday i will have tried all the teas…ALL THE TEAS!

Terri HarpLady

Me too! Everything!

TastyBrew

I’m with you. If the word floral is in the description it’s tough for me to try it. Good for you for overcoming ;-)

Sil

yeah there are a few things i have come to learn that i don’t enjoy. floral teas, bergamot and jasmine. I still keep putting them in my mouth though i won’t purchase them lol

TastyBrew

Those are all on my list too. Funny. FYI.. It’s taking all my willpower to remember this is a public forum and not make bad (albeit hilarious) joke about your previous statement.

Sil

Lol yup, I do that all the time. “Keep it inside…keep it inside” :)

Terri HarpLady

Yeah, there’s lots of room for inappropriate commentary here, at which admittedly I excel. Sometimes Ms Theresa looks at me & says, “walk about from the keyboard Terri, you are NOT going to say THAT!”

Oh stacy… this is lovely!

I’m finally getting a chance to try this one and i’m not sure why i waited to long. I know that there is a sample (i think) of the other darjeeling on it’s way but this is pretty tasty. I don’t even know how to describe this one. It’s a black that doesn’t taste like a black but still has character and delicious notes happening here. mmmmm yeah this is nice! (sorry for the inadequate note, just not sure how to describe this)

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.
