i always, always forget how much i love this tea. It sits neglected in my cupboard all the time. Silly Sil. i pulled this one out last night as i wanted something solid, but i’m trying to hold off on my remaining LB… gah! so i had this one..and it was delicious! yummy! wonderful. :) it was slightly smokey and that was just perfect for yesterday.

Cavocorax

Whoops. I do the same. I’ve got 1 oz just sitting, waiting for me to notice it!
(Well, I just don’t want to open it because it’s sealed and I have a bunch of random bagged teas floating around begging for attention!)

Sil

i think i want to try this + vanilla pwder + cocoa nibs like terri was thinking lol

Terri HarpLady

So it! I was thinking of zheng shan xiao zhong.

drank Caramel by TeaGschwendner
4738 tasting notes

sooo much to do today. Just catching up on a few backlogs from yesterday. this was another one that i had – i blended this with the cream from tea G to have a caramel cream. i have to say, i am really digging the teas from tea G. i don’t know that i ever want 100g so i may need to only shop there when i’m in chicago…or do split orders with people but their flavours are tasty and i enjoy the base that they use.

whatshesaid

Yes, curse you for putting this one on my wishlist!! ;)

Sil

haha if i ever do an order via my tea mule i’ll let you know. or if we end up in chicago again – i may have to go for work this summer

whatshesaid

That would be sweeeeet :)

Terri HarpLady

I need to try to take a trip to Chicago to visit the harp factory & various tea places. Maybe in the fall.

Sil

time it with meeeeeeeeeeeeee!

Terri HarpLady

THAT would be cool! Let me know next time you’re going, & I’ll try to go then too…if I can!

drank After Dark by Steam Tea House

Dear Steam. Get an online store. Thank you.

Another cup from last night, and at this point i need to bump the rating up because dear lord, if you steep this a long time…its amazing…especially when paired with a strawberry daiquiri (or two….)

my pouch is getting low….stupid lack of online store! bah!

Final Count: 189 [119 in my fake cupboard]

OMGsrsly

Will 50g do you?

Sil

The way I drink things…maaaaybe. Lol but we need to come up with a way for me to reciprocate or send all my money to you :) I should have bought more when I was there, bought it would be enough but forgot about sharing with cavo lol

OMGsrsly

LOL. Want me to grab you 100g? I’m heading there in a bit…

thank you roswell strange this was one of my teas last night, sitting on the balcony chatting with the first of our friends who came over. Sadly, the larger group didn’t leave until almost 2am so i can recall absolutely nothing about this tea except that i downed it and kept looking for me, so i’ll take that as a win haha sooooo appreciate the share Roswell lol wish i had a better note for it, but i DID really like it

drank Steamed Purple Green by Butiki Teas
4738 tasting notes

mmmmm sooo i’m still enjoying this one. Stacy always finds interesting green teas for the non green tea lover in me. This likely won’t be a restock as i don’t have room for many greens in my cupboard (think…2? maybe? if that) but it may make repeat appearances in future for fun :)

Courtney

I’m the same with greens. I’m at my all-time high with 3 in the cupboard hah!

Sil

i have a few more than 3 but only 2? actual purchases of SMALL quantities…the other couple are samples from ppl

Angel was incredible enough to send me a sample of this for me to try. This might be one of the most unique teas that i’ve had recently. I love the way these leaves look. They’re like flat pressed seaweed or something. You can even see the lines of the leaves. it’s just really neat to look at. drinking this, it’s also a unique taste. I don’t get the same vegetal taste from a lot of greens. Instead this has a sweetness to it. It’s fresh and really nice, but i can’t place my finger on the taste. i still prefer the dragonwell from teavivre, but this is a really neat tea to have tried. I feel like this would be a good tea for anyone who really like greens.

TheTeaFairy

Neat! (And no, I won’t say what you think I will…very tempting though, cause ya know…you do keep raving about green tea lately, and well for someone who says they don’t want to come and play to the G….. S…)

Sil

no no no no no!

Bio

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.
