SIPDOWN! though it’s only until i get my actual order from kittenna in may. Terriharplady was awesome enough to send me the last little bit of hers because she had another order on the way. heh That’s how awesome she is!

So i get to try this and now, now i’m glad that i’ve got almost 2oz coming my way. I think most of the reviews have covered off how good this is. I just wanted to add that funnily enough it smells a lot like red leaf’s caramel matcha when i opened the bag. though that’s about as similar as they are lol

I am thoroughly going to enjoy re-steeping this tonight while i relax and enjoy my tv shows and delicious dinner.

(oh yeah..260 sipdowns! yes i can count, it’s just that i had to add in the few teas i picked up from tastybrew)

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 3 min, 0 sec

I don’t think I’m ever gonna get tired of hearing you tell everyone how awesome I am, Sil! Thanks! I’m glad you like it, I knew you would!

gross. ick. no thank you. I’m sure there are folks out there who will love this as a green tropical blend but i pretty much just put the last of the sample i split back into the bag for kittenna so that it’s not in my house anymore lol

Not overly a fan of this one. It’s sweet and peach like and i guess it could be a good one to have on your cupboard if you want more rooibos non caffeine blends but that’s as far as i’ll go. overall pretty meh.

Ysaurella

even the tea name isn’t appealing at all ! I wish several American brands decide to use more glamorous names :)

soooo no poprocks that i can see or hear. Sadly this tastes like every other cinnamon sort of tea out there. rest of this going into my swap box since i can do without since there are better out there if i REALLY want a cinnamon tea.

more backlogs though sadly as a result my tasting notes are admittedly kinda of crap. that’s what you get for having a steepster that decides to up and die on the weekend BOOOOOOOOOO!

thanks again to terri for swapping some of this with me. a pretty decent assam over all!

Sipdown!

Tried this cold brew to see if i liked it any better and the final verdict is? not to much. the brew is a bright yellow liquor as a cold brew but there’s a bitterness hiding in it that i can’t get past. oh well.

Preparation
Iced 8 min or more

sipdown!

not a fan of this one. It’s sort of lemony and has a bit of a pepper bite to it, but it’s nothing amazing or wonderful.

drank Thé des Amants by Le Palais des Thes

alright let’s see if steepster is going to cooperate and let me backlog. Sipdown on this one and thanks again to ysaurella for the lovely swap. I quiet enjoy this one, though maybe not as much as some of the others that were shared with me. the cinnamon, ginger and vanilla play very nicely together.

Ysaurella

totally agree on this one – nice but not a keeper – this is often my opinion with most of the teas from Palais des Thés – complicated to play in the same garden with MF or DF blends…

Sil

it seems that way. MF and DF are so very wonderful…

Steepster is the suck today. Totally not cooperating with me. Sipdown! Loving the smokiness of this one and I’m so glad i got to try it. Thank you Terri!

Cavocorax

It’s so difficult today. :| I just want to read and comment and I’m having so much trouble. Doesn’t Steepster know I’m trying to procrastinate?

Nicole

completely The Suck.

Nicole

Totally the suck.

Nicole

As we see from duplicate comments… :)

Sil

lol yeah

Cavocorax

You can tell we’re the stubborn few when we’re willing to hit refresh 10+ times just to post a comment or review a tea.

Fuzzy_Peachkin

lol. I’ve been having that problem too. And I hit the button about 10x to get my note up too.

Never give up! Never, never, never!

Kaylee

Me too! I was starting to worry it was my internet…

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.
