SIPDOWN! and that ladies and gents, puts me at 200. Not that i’ll stay there for that long since i have birthday orders to come in july and there’s a mini package coming from nxtdoor that will likely be here tomorrow. So I need to keep on drinking! But now…now i just need to try and aim for drinking things that i have lots of, at least more than 2-3 cups of.

This tea? It’s not bad but it’s not great. It’s actually a little watered down for me more than anything, and i believe that i added a bit of extra leaf. There’s a nice smokey flavour to this, but i just want it to be a bit…“more”

Congrats on 200 haha

Nxtdoor

It’s gonna be a nice weekend. Take your fruit teas and make ice tea pitcher. Take it outback with a book and you’ll be finishing a lot of teas in no time. Unless of course, you have to do a release again :)

OMGsrsly

Go you! :)

quick catch up on my tasting notes before bed. Got stuck on call so the only thing i could concentrate on was chatting with my technology friends and painting my toes lol which is SO unlike me… girly, i am not.

Tried this one cold brewed, and while i like it better than hot brew, i’m still not in love with it..but it’s decent.

Preparation
Iced 8 min or more

drank Summer blend by PureAromaTea

sipdown! I’m kind of cheating on this one because i found a pureaoma tea that i don’t want to drink. I was wondering about this one when i got it because of the flowers and it turns out my suspicions were right. however, the tea is a smooth blend…i just personally don’t like the flavour. So of course…this is totally going to terri’s place LOL

drank Grapefruit Dragon by Butiki Teas

SIPDOWN! The rest of this is off to terri for her to try, though i’m a little worried that the taste is a little less fresh. I only say that because this cup tastes quite different from the first time i had it. So be fair warned terri! It’s still a delicious tangy sour grapefruity tea but it’s a little less…something today. heh still good though, and i’d order it again for sure.

mmmm this is really tasty and refreshing. I’m beginning to feel like green teas are growing on my this spring. Maybe just need to be drinking green teas in the right season to really enjoy them. I’m trying to make a concentrated effort to drink up some of my green teas as i have a tendency to leave them until i have less to drink.

This is a really enjoyable cup this morning. Makes me want fresh veggies from the garden where you just rinse them and there’s a little dirt left when you take your first bite… mmmmm

Another tea that i haven’t had yet! I’m not sure which one of these MF teas i like more. This tea is a really nice assam but it really isn’t malty. not that it’s a bad thing but it’s a bit different from some of my other assams. I’m going to have to spend more time with this one! :)

Pulled this one out to go with my other cup from MF. i really need to try this cold brewed to see how it fares. While i don’t dislike this tea, there are others from MF that i love more! I do understand this teas popularity though.

drank Yunnan Impérial by Mariage Frères

mmmm! I like this one. Finally getting some time to focus on drinking some of the teas i’ve swapped away to share in the goodies my parents brought back for me but still haven’t tried. I REALLY want some mousse au chocolat but i promised myself that i wouldn’t open it until i hit 200 teas as a way to bribe myself. :)

This is a good black tea, something that’s not super BOLD and STRONG, but still enough going on to give you that little kick in the morning to get your going. There’s a sweetness to this tea that i like, though it does leave my mouth a little dry – something i’ve noticed with a few other yunnans. Overall, not a bad little tea for something my parents randomly picked up!

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.
