drank Cacao Chai by Traveling Tea

this is my poor black tea base substitute for after dark. sigh while i DO enjoy this one, i always wish it was after dark when i have it lol It’s got a good thing going with it’s vanilla and ginger and cocoa…cardamom. I need to try this as a latte because i think that would really make the flavours even more awesome. :)

I need to find my samples form you & Nicole. Last thing I remember they were on my desk, & I know they are somewhere in my office, but things got a little crazy over the last week or so…

Sil

Haha yeah you do and yes they did! I’m making breakfast and drinking puerh! Only 10 more hrs to stay awake lol

Terri HarpLady

what i have successfully concluded after a few cups of this tea is that i don’t like it in a travel mug. There’s something about this tea that begs for a giant ceramic mug….something to wrap my hands around and feel the warmth while i savour this one. Because i DO like it..but it’s not a brew for anyone who likes meek teas. This one says HAAALLOOOOOO in a deep booming voice. it’s great. :)

drank Monster Brew by Adagio Teas

I picked this one up and the other 2 in the series last time i was in chicago for tea bag options when travelling. I had only had rocket fuel at that point so it was a bit of a gamble but they were on sale lol. I had this tonight in an effort to try and sample all the teas in my cupboard. Still working on my 6 month goal, but i also want to make sure i’m trying the new teas before they’re “old” :) This one wasn’t bad..but it wasn’t as yum as rocket fuel. the flavours just sort of blended into a fruity sort of tea that wasn’t distinctly anything in particular. didn’t hate it though, and that’s saying much given my dislike for a lot of adagio teas.

Not sleeping tonight, but technically final count: 107

drank Bamboo-Pomelo by TeaGschwendner

i had this earlier tonight and was really disappointed. There’s something in here which reminded me of artificial sweetner…which is weird because when i’ve had this before it wasn’t like that. I’m going to withold changing my rating and have this a couple more times to see if i just managed to do something weird. I’ll be upset if i just don’t like this anymore since i did recently buy it while in chicago because i loved it!

I’ve been drinking this tea most of the day. I’m trying to get down to 100 this weekend but i’m trying to get through at least a couple of my puerh samples since i’m always super neglectful about drinking them. I’ve got an overnight tonight, so i figured i was safe to drink a few puerhs since if they kept me up, it wasn’t a bad thing haha

This was a sample sent to my by misty peaks and i’m grateful for the chance to try it out. I don’t have much to say about this, beyond the fact that i’d consider buying a cake of this. :) It was a really enjoyable experience and just tied the day together. there was a sweetness… just.yum.

mmmmm this is a tasty cup of tea with a bit of honey. Almost done the last of this but there’s enough for at least one more cup :)

this is a nice darjeeling! Thanks nicole. :) I don’t really love darjeelings. But there are a few in this world that i can get behind. This is one of them. This is a smooth darjeeling, with just a little sweetness going on here that i’m enjoying. Passing the little cup’s worth that’s left to Cavo since she might enjoy this one. :)

drank Silk Dragon by The Tea Merchant

I had this tea once upon a time in a galaxy far, far away. This one was shared with me by boychik, via terri :)
I’m happy for the chance to try this nearly 2 years later in case my tastes have changed. Again, this is a cup of coconut, vanilla oolong. Is it bad? Nope. But is is a tea for me that would conquer my general dislike of oolongs? hells. no. I enjoyed this cup, but as a non fan of oolongs, there are other teas that i’d rather have :) appreciate the share though as you never know how your tastes can change!

boychik

i have a cup or two left but dont feel like drinking it. will give it to girls;)

drank Pineapple Oolong by Lupicia

not a bad cup of tea…but i vastly prefer stacy’s. Not sorry to finish this one up, since i find that this one loses it’s flavours once opened…though that’s in part because of me heh. An enjoyable cup of pineapple tea…but man, i really am going to miss stacy’s version :(

thank you terri! for saving some of this for me. I am really enjoying this version of snaily tea. It’s sweet and malty and mostly just really great this morning. It’s got a pastry, honey sort of thing going on, that is just the thing to kick off my really long day. I’ve got an overnight tonight with work, and if things go the way they usually, do… i’ll have been up since 5:30 this morning and won’t be sleeping until 9am ish on saturday. I’ll try to nap but it never seems to work.

I’m having a snail as well! :D

Terri HarpLady

Always glad to encourage your happiness, my dear tea sister!
BTW, I think our pumpkin ginger tea is almost ready for pickup.
How ugh am I sending to you, half a lb?

Sil

LOL we’ll need to figure that out. I know we have to send some to dexter…sooo maybe not a whole half pound to me haha. Or you can um i dunno…send part in the next box and the other part later?

Terri HarpLady

She is packing it up in 2 8oz bags, so I figured 1 for you, one for me, LOL

Dexter

I know it’s precious, but will buy off of you whatever you are willing to part with. Just excited to get to try some of this. :)))

Sil

I’ll share mine with Dexter terri, was part of my plan anyway lol

bizbee1

I am not familiar with snail teas but see them a lot, how do they relate to assam? I am about to finish off some of that so I can buy something new!

Sil

that’s a tough one, since i’ve had such a wide variety of assams, whose flavour profiles were incredibly different from one another lol

bizbee1

yes how does a line relate to a cat or something! Oh well I’ll just have tot try some of both

Kittenna

Pumpkin ginger tea?! Custom blend from someone?

Sil

K – it’s the one from travelling tea that terri and i fell in love with last year.

Kittenna

No memory of that, but that’s ok! Was curious :D

Kittenna

Thanks :) Looks like that was during a time I was not reading notes, given that I don’t have a single like on any of your/Terri’s notes.

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.
