drank Laoshan Black by Verdant Tea
6407 tasting notes

this was one of my morning teas, which seems like an eternity from now. It’s been a challenging week so needless to say i haven’t been drinking much tea or having time to write much about the teas i’ve been drinking. I chose this one because it’s an oldie but a goodie. :)

I hope things calm down a little for you…

Bonnie

Me too…ditto!

Thanks guys….thrs and Friday shouldbe. A little quieter since most of the US folks are on vacation. Working from home today so that I can hang out in my pj’s and listen to music while I work :) and drink tea of course! A mini mental health day while still working. :)

mmmmm took a bath and had this one with me. Pretty sure it was steeped the entire time i was drinking it and it’s no worse for wear. I’m a fan of teabags/herbals that let you do that since sometimes you just can’t be bothered fishing teabags out, or dealing with loose tea on the go. Still really enjoying this one as a substitute for making actual apple cider.

Bag-in teas are great for tired or lazy evenings.

Sil

Yes…yes they are! Esp when they taste decent enough haha

mmmm i had this earlier in the day but forgot to log it. Took it with me on my afternoon walk with my other half. We won’t get much time to spend together over the next couple of days – he’s got a staff meeting tonight, and then tomorrow i’ve got a work function to go to, while he’s at dodgeball so really, we won’t be hanging out until tuesday dinner, before he’s off to raid for the evening. heh

I will be sad when this one is gone if only because i am a fan of the smoothness mixed in with the smoke and a little maple syrup :)

I admire people who take walks in frigid temps. So not me. But yes, I admire.

Sil

hahahaha on our first date, my other half and i walked for 4 hours…

Thanks Dexter! So strangely enough…even though the muscatel in this one is like HEY LOOK AT ME! I am enjoying this one. I don’t typically really enjoy darjeelings, but the next thing i knew, i was at the bottom of this mug going ..oopsy….i drank it all? There’s something in the smoothness of this one that just makes it easy to drink and rather enjoyable. Not something i’d pick myself, but i’m glad that they sent this along to dexter as a free sample so i got to try it!

Edit: 140! go me! woot woot!

Preparation
180 °F / 82 °C 3 min, 0 sec

This is by far the best darjeeling I’ve had. I would never have ordered this. Love when free samples work out that way.
Congrats on 140. :))

Cavocorax

Gj on 140! So, are you going to be at 250 AFTER Black Friday? :P

Sil

God no. Hoping to stay near 150. Though I’m half tempted to see how low I can go

Cavocorax

Let’s see you catch up to me! >:O
(I bought tea from VariaTEA and Janelle so I’ll be heading up your way!)

Cavocorax

(I just realized I have about 28 incoming and that’s not even with my Black Friday orders. :O So, never mind. You’ll be lower than me)

drank Cherry Ripe Tea by The Tea Centre
6407 tasting notes

Today’s cup of this is much less coconut-y and more fruity tasting?? Thats happened with a few teas today so maybe my tastebuds are having a weird day. This is an interesting tea, though the difference today is pretty huge from the first time i had it. I like it, but it wouldn’t be a repurchase, which makes me a little happy since getting this from Australia would be a pain in the ass :) Thanks so much for the share though alice as it’s been an enjoyable cup :)

drank Hello Sweetie by Butiki Teas
6407 tasting notes

sipdown! looks like i could PROBABLY get to 140 this weekend which would put me 10 under my sipdown black friday goal – giving me nearly 3 weeks to get my cupboard down to a point where when i get my black friday orders, i’ll still be under 150. At least that’s the plan anyway.

I am a fan of this one. I can see how this would work well with hot chocolate…mostly i just really like this one. I only wish the banana flavour was a teeeeeny bit stronger. I almost stole some banana chips from foxy roxy haha but i didn’t. Thanks a bunch for sharing james! totally delicious! i also like that the resteeps are pretty tasty too!

JustJames

most welcome!!! i hope stacy is reading all the review. i know she really likes the blend as well…. =0)

Cavocorax

I hope she’s reading them too.

Psssst Stacy – there is DEMAND for this! :O

Fjellrev

I don’t want this, I NEED this.

Cavocorax

I just wwish that a) it was available for sale and b) that we could order it for Black Friday as I probably won’t be doing another order for a few months…

that settles it. i prefer this western brew 4-5 cones for 4 mins or so rather than gaiwan. heh I saved one little cone to try out with my gaiwan and while it’s a pleasant enough cup, i like the depth of flavour you get from a western brew much better. :) thanks for the share terri!

Nicole

Those sound good. And they look so cute!

Sil

they are SUPER CUTE when they bloom and look pretty funky before brewing as well :)

drank Pumpkin Milkshake by Butiki Teas
6407 tasting notes

sipdown on the last of this sent my way by justjames i think i like the second infusion of this one better than the first – which is rare for me. It just seems a little more pumpkin like. That being said, i think i prefer stacy’s pumpkin creme brulee, though this isn’t a bad tea..just doesn’t jive with the pumpkin i want it to be in my head. Thanks for the share justjames!

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.
