drank Yunnan Impérial by Mariage Frères
5401 tasting notes

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!

sipdown! (205) yeah..working from home day! Which means aiming for 200 teas today or a decent dent in things that i have 2-4 cups worth left so that i can get to under 200 by the time we head out on vacation!

I’ve enjoyed this one a bunch, slightly more than the english tea store version, though my memory might just be making me THINK this one is slightly better when it’s not. All that really means is that when i go back for more of my highland blend someday, i can also pick this one up :) As long as you drink it while hot, it’s a great bold, thick, rich caramel tea. More what i love drinking in winter but still one i could drink year round.

You’re so close to 200!

drank Peppermint Patty by Butiki Teas

well if it had to be an unplanned thing, it ought to be a butiki tea. go go 2000th tasting note! woot woot! Still loving this tea a bunch, if only because i really like how smooth it is, while still being one for late nights. Not that caffeine has much affect on me, but friends like having delicious teas at night, and this is one i have NO issues sharing with them. :) thanks stacy! and thank you steepster folks for being awesome!

CHAroma

OMG! 2000?! WHAAAAAAT??? You go, girl!!!!

Sil

lol thanks everyone.. i drink too much..

Cavocorax

Haha. The geek in me sorta wants to take those 2000 notes and analyze them. What percentage of them are black teas? Or teas from Butiki? Etc. That’s a lot of data just sitting there…

drank Milk Chocolate by sTEAp Shoppe
5401 tasting notes

meh. I think i like the other chocolate teas from janet more than this one by a pretty big margin. it’s not a tea i’d toss down the drain, but if i never drank this one again i’d be ok with that. It’s just pretty meh..especially when compared to other chocolate teas i’ve had…hell even to janet’s other teas!

Stephanie

What’s your fave chocolate tea?

Sil

at this moment it’s probably mousse au chocolate from MF…but there have been a few…my memory sucks atm but if i think of them i’ll hollar. haha

Terri HarpLady

So far mine is The Chocolate “O”, which I am currently out of.

Sil

I second that one Stephanie….if you’re on the lookout… I knew I was having a brain fart….actually the boulder one from the tea spot is also tasty with chocolate notes….it’s just not a chocolate tea I don’t think…

Dinosara

Yeah, my ultimate chocolate tea is the Tea Spot’s Chocolate “O”

Stephanie

woot, thanks folks :D

drank Creamy Eggnog by Butiki Teas

Another sipdown for the day! Still a delicious, delicious tea that i will be happy to have back in my cupboard again…but in the fall! It’s much more of a drink in cooler weather tea for me.

SIPDOWN! (206) I really wish i knew more about this tea because it’s really quite delicious as far as greens go. It’s refreshing and ‘juicy’ and i totally gulped my last cup down without noticing how quickly it was going.

Terri HarpLady

I enjoyed all of the samples you sent from that company :)

SIPDOWN! (208) yeah…figured i’d better get one more in tonight to make up for my lack of tea drinking on monday. I cannot believe that it’s only tuesday. It for sure feels like friday! Speaking of friday – Tall Ships are here! well they will be on thrs so that’s always exciting. Here’s hoping for some warm weather to go down to the harbourfront and check them out friday evening before we need to get packing and get organised with our house sitter. heh

I still enjoy this tea as far as greens go but i still prefer a good solid black or an herbal tisane! Thank you again lala i do love your random teas :)

Amariel

I <3 tall ships!

Angrboda

Oooh we have Tall Ships Races starting here in Århus in a couple of weeks. We were going to a restaurant not too far from the harbour that weekend for our anniversary, so we decided to make it into an outing and have a go around the harbour as well.

Sil

sounds great angrboda!

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.
