sipdown! but i apparently didn’t add this to the cupboard so it doesn’t really count haha. Another tea from nicole I’m learning to apprecaite dajeelings a little more. I still won’t pick one up over a good black or puerh per say, but i for sure like them more than i used to. This one has a touch of stringency to it but in a way that reminds me of some green teas that i’ve had. It’s got lots of fruity notes to it…similar to peach but not quite. Overall an enjoyable cup! Thanks again Nicole!

Sample sipdown (136) I picked this one up with my last Yezi tea order just to try another white tea. They generally not my favourite, but i keep trying to see if there are any that knock my socks off like the one i tried from MF.

This one is tasty, but again falls short, only because of my inability to really appreciate white teas. It’s not overly floral and there’s a smooth, sweetness to this that i quite like. Overall a nice little tea, though folks who appreciate white teas will likely enjoy it much more than me :)

drank Qing Pin Black Tea by Yezi Tea

had a cup of this in the morning. Another tea from the BBBBox from tastybrew! I love how confusing this tea is :) it’s chocolatey and sweet and fruity and peachy and my mouth is all over the place. haha It really is a neat tea and another great tea from yezi!

TastyBrew

The aroma of this tea pretty much blows my mind.

Sil

heh there’s a reason i ordered another ounce over black friday :)

sample sipdown! (137) I’m hoping to get my cupboard down to 130 this weekend at the least but i’m not sure that’s doable. While i’m stuck at home working, i’m also just exahusted and easily distracted.

This tea was sent my way from nicole and is helping to confirm my suspicions that ceylon teas are not my favourite. I don’t hate them but they’re that sort of “i guess this will do” sort of tea. This tea has an astringent edge to it. It’s not bitter and doesn’t feel oversteeped but it’s a tea that would probably be better off with some milk and sugar…and i rarely do that. Still not a bad cup, just nothing to knock my socks up. Happy to be trying this company though! :) Thanks Nicole!

last tea of the evening today…our trip back to the craft fair so i could pick up a couple more samples of the teas from the interesting tea company there were unsuccessful. Oh well..not like i need more tea, but it would have been nice. I had a cup of this when i got home while i did some urgent troublshooting for work to fix some things and then it was on to clean up a few things before i get some sleep tonight. Day at home tomorrow because of work so you can bet i’ll be drinking tea, reading books and watching tv while i wait on things haha

Still enjoy this tea and i’m loving the additional options for caffeine free teas to choose from :)

drank American Breakfast by Mariage Frères

sipdown! (138) and this one goes on the shopping list. It’s like the more elegant cousin of bolder breakfast..smoother, more delicious and less artificial tasting (not that bolder breakfast is artificial tasting but in comparison…). I adore this tea. It won’t replace wedding imperial for me but it WILL have a spot in my cupboard….someday. I hope!

…just need to find a decent source for MF teas without stupid shipping! Thank you again cteresa!

yeah…bumping the rating up on this one since it seems to be the tea i’ve been reaching for when i just want something that i’m comfortable and familiar with and that makes me happy. I ALWAYS drink this one down without realising it so it deserves a higher rating since i clearly love it…with a splash of maple lol

Bonnie

Yum…I think this is my favorite Teavivre Tea.

Sil

it really is delicious!

drank Vanilla Plantation by Silk Road

quick tasting notes on tonight’s stuff before i try to get to bed. Long day tomorrow and i’m up way later than i wanted to be. I had this first thing as a latte and it was the perfect start to my day. I am loving it! still haven’t tried it straight lol

JustJames

this one was not my favourite… too buttercream. not bad certainly, just not my favourite vanilla version =0)

MissB

Too buttercream? How is that even possible. Seriously, that sounds like the best icing ever, in tea format.

JustJames

lol, i don’t like buttercream. now…. spiced cream… as in the stuff i mke to go over pavlova is a whole other story….

Sil

haha i haven’t tried it straight yet, so hard to tell what it tastes like on it’s own…with milk i’m enjoying it a bunch..but i still want to do a comparison with the other vanillas in my cupboard.

drank Carpe Diem by THE O DOR

sipdown! (139) I have not been doing well with drinking up my teas to be good when my orders start coming in. I’m hoping that I’ll get a chance over the next couple of weekend. Should be doable since i’ve got release testing to do this weekend and next.

This one could grow on me..i still like une autre idee more but this was tastier tonight so that’s good to note. Thanks again cteresa!

JustJames

this will seem a strange comment on tea.

i would like to offer my benedition of peace to an old warrior here, sil: nelson mandela died 2 hours ago. he was 95.

given the name of the tea it seemed appropriate.

Sil

Not strange at all. It’s hard to believe that he’s not in this world anymore

JustJames

agreed. wherever he is i hope it’s peaceful.

BrewTEAlly Sweet

Your killing me with all these o dor teas!!!! Making me go mad! I want what I can’t have!!!!! Ahhhhh

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.
