thanks for sharing this one with me VariaTEA this one wasn’t as delicious as i thought it would be. the chai like sort of thing sounded really nice. However something about the flavour combination just isn’t jiving for me. at least i got to try it though! thanks VT!

drank Pu-Erh Blue Lemon by T2
4831 tasting notes

Another one from MissB this is apparently all the joy and fun i get today since once again i am stuck at home with work while my other half gets to go out with friends. I’m so upset i could just sit and cry. I spent all of today working so that i could go out this afternoon and tomorrow and now, thanks to work, i’m now here while our friends have picked up my other half and left. Even if i get away from this testing with technology, it’ll take me 90 mins just to join them so there’s hardly a point at this rate.

This tea is quite nice, though i’m not sure where the blueberry taste it. There’s a lovely lemon taste here, but if i hadn’t read memily’s review i wouldn’t have even known there was supposed to be blueberry here. This is just coming across as a REALLY earthy puerh with lemon flavouring in the background. I really wish the lemon were stronger here, and i can see this being really offputting for anyone who doesn’t like puerh. Thanksfully, though i enjoy puerh and i’m still enjoying this cup, though i wish it was more lemoney…and uh i guess blueberry too since i can’t taste any of that lol

MissB

You got more out of it than I did! :)

Nicole

Aw. That’s awful about work. I hope it gets better.

Bear With Me

Ditch work and teleport over here for cuddles, silly movies, and tea. If I had company I might even find motivation to make cookies or something.

Sil

MissB – hope you’re feeling better :(

So not even worth the overtime guys…. this is the suck.

Sami Kelsh

Aww man. So sorry about work being a butt. kicks work

Marzipan

Sil what do you do?

Sil

marzipan… “whatever they make me” :) lol uh easiest way to describe it is that i’m part of the group that looks after our business banking platform @ a bank.

mmmmm another tea from YYZ Now while i stand fast in that green teas generally aren’t my favourite tea, i DO admit there are a fwe out there that i love. This falls in to that category as this is a deliciously great green tea. it’s got a sweet green bean taste to it and there’s none of that after taste that sometimes hangs around with some green teas. This is just a really solid tea. Again, probably not going to stock it since i never drink greens with any speed but this would fall to the top of my list if i were going to :) thanks a bunch YYZ!

Preparation
180 °F / 82 °C 0 min, 45 sec

I adore this one too..so much that I am willing to brave taobao to restock it. Green teas are the main part of tea production whereas as black teas are still seen to be experimental. A lot of companies have not yet produced black teas this year. Whether this was because of lower yields due to drought or just the level of demand for the green tea I don’t know.

I’m really glad you liked this one!

drank Rhubarb Meringue by Cornelia Bean
4831 tasting notes

thanks for sending this my way VariaTEA another one i haven’t tried. As far as teas go, this one is alright. I’d be hard pressed to call this rhubarb though. it’s more a generic green fruity tea to me…still nice enough but not really rhubarb or meringue.

VariaTEA

It had 2 meringue pieces in the whole bag of 50g :(

drank Creme Brulee by T2
4831 tasting notes

Another from MissB i have to say this was was pretty pleasant. I think i like bayswater’s version just a little more, but not with a huge degree of conviction lol. This has got some great caramel/vanilla notes in it and even as it cooled it maintained that delicious taste. happy to have tried this one! thanks missb!

MissB

Of all the T2 teas, I think this is my favorite.

Sil

so far i’d have to agree, though the puerh was nice too… heh

Another from YYZ this one is a malty delicious cup of goodness lol. It reminds me of a tea that i can’t place. It’s got a great feel to this one in the mouth and the after taste is wonderful. I am really digging this one today! It’ not bitter, not astringent and there’s a subtle sweetness to this one in the background without being a sweet cup of tea.

yyz

I’m glad you like this one! I got it from an aliexpress dealer but they sent it directly from the tea factory and included a tin and green tea samples.

drank Chocolate by T2
4831 tasting notes

missB sent this one my way. Note to those that try this, it’s much better hot than when it cools lol i got distracted with work and ended up having to drink a bunch of it on the cooler side. hot, this is delicious chocolate tea…warm this is more of a thin liquidy sort of vaguely reminiscent of chocolate sort of tea. I vastly prefer it hot heh

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.
