I figured given the way the last past couple of days have gone, i might as well do it right by starting my day with a cup of awesome! I always find myself hoarding this tea and then when i try it, want to drink it all down immediately. This really is a fantastic assam that i’m so happy to have tried.

i just need one thing to go right today…. 7.5 hour workday topped off with another 7-9 hours of over time. No lunch, system issues, finally home hoping to have a little downtime to get food and drink in me…no mail…too late in the day to have tea since i’ve been sleeping poorly and don’t want to risk it…all my verdant points are gone (40,000+)….email out to team, hope they can resolve this…

yep it’s that kind of day. at least i had this tea 12 hours ago to start the day? forgot how delicious it was…need to pick up more.

I agree with you sentiment.

Fuzzy_Peachkin

drank Miami Mango by Steep City Teas

THIS is so much better than i remember! Cold brew for the win! With a teeeeeny tiny bit of sweetner this is a pretty delicious cup of ice tea. It makes my happy as well since this is one of my older teas that i need to get to drinking down. I’m trying to do a multitude of things with my cupboard these days – sipdown 52 teas; get to 150; finish off my small sizes of things; try everything in my cupboard that i have yet tried…. you get the drift. :) At least it makes for a bit of fun, organising and re-organising things haha

While i wouldn’t call this an overly “mango” blend, it is pretty fruity and tasty in cold brew form. not too sweet and not to tart..and totally not hibiscus-y :)

Preparation
Iced 8 min or more
Tea Sipper

I love this one.

Sil

I wasn’t crazy about it the first time i had it but cold brewed its delicious!

drank Cotton Candy Black Tea by 52teas
5595 tasting notes

I really do quite like this one cold brewed with a little sweetner. After tonight’s giant mugs i have just enough for one more cup of this before it’s out of the cupboard. May not get to any sipdowns today BUT i am at least well on my way to being able to do a bunch in a row of single cups heh

This is like sweet, cooled liquid cotton candy in a mug. Tasty!

Indigobloom

kinda feels like cheating when I do that lol

drank Assam #1 by thepuriTea
5595 tasting notes

I had this in the morning in my travel mug. It’s part of the joint order that Terri and i shared. I have to say on the whole, this is a fairly average cup. It’s not bad, it’s not great…sort of middle of the road for me in terms of assams. What does that mean? I’ll finish it up, but not order more and it’s another one to cross off my list of “all the teas!” :) thanks terri!

Terri HarpLady

I really wanted to like their teas, & they are ok, but none of them live up to the description, & they don’t look at all like the photos. Oh well, at least they don’t taste bad. I think maybe I’m just too use to awesome over the top teas, haha

Another tea from this morning, but of course i had no time to log anything since it was back to work! I am nearly down to the end of this but i’m ok with that since another order with stacy is imminent! woot woot!

Glad that i’m still loving this one after all this time :)

Rosehips

Had my very first cup of this today. It was wonderful.

Sil

I saw that! Glad you enjoyed it…stacy’s got some amazing teas imo :)

drank Mint Chocolate Matcha by Red Leaf Tea

Had another smoothie with this in the morning. Still a delicious treat, though I maintain that this is one that robust flavouring would be the way to go for me :)

Fuzzy_Peachkin

That DOES sounds quite decadent!

Terri HarpLady

I still have that little vial of matcha you sent me. I should drink that. Remind me…how do you make your smoothie?

Sil

Uh however The fancy strikes me :) milk + ice + frozen banana+ matcha. I like flavouring so I use anywhere from 1.5 to 2 tsp per cup of liquid (milk)

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.
