Every time I see you drink this it intrigues me. I always open it in a new tab to be re-disappointed it a rooibos. Perhaps I’ll try it one day anyway!

Sil

Yay! This one is SO GOOD. Especially steeped in milk. :)

drank Loco Lime by RiverTea
8067 tasting notes

i am a fan of lime teas. I picked this one up hoping for a little competition with lime gelato from david’s or lime chiffon from della terra. Sadly, after cold brewing this for the day, it’s only a little limey and the bright pink brew is unsettling haha. It’s got a creamy ish sort of taste to it, and it’s not sour but it’s also pretty weak in the lime department. I’ll drink this and enjoy it, especially on hot summer days but this isn’t nearly as limey as it needs to be :)

I’ve been hoarding this one, which is silly because it’s not a limited edition, i can get it anytime and i love it. So i dug it out as a little reward today for finishing off my october teas, and because technically i should be working through my 100g of this anyway haha. Added a little maple syrup as i usually do and loved every last drop of it! yay for being back to work after working from home for 4 days lol

drank Je t'Aime by Nina's Paris
8067 tasting notes

I figured i should bust this out to have again since i bought it a while back and while i blew through the japon i bought, i hadn’t even had this one yet. Not my favourite of the nin’as teas but one that i do like. I wish i could get the full caramel/vanilla intensity that i get in Japon, but in this black base. Still, it’s a nice treat to have, though maybe not a reorder by the time i finish the package heh

drank Strawberry Cream by RiverTea
8067 tasting notes

better review to come of this at a later date but i wanted to try this hand in hand with taurus to see which i preferred. this one is clearly a fruit tea :) and is “close” to strawberry but the “cream” is for sure coming through. overall a really nice tea i can see drinking cold in the summer..which is good because that’s why i picked it up!

VariaTEA

Oooh this is one I wanted to try. Glad to see it was nice.

Terri HarpLady

AND it’s summer!

Sil

VariaTEA – when you come over you can steal some :)

VariaTEA

Oooh yay!! Can I also steal some Happy Banana while I am at it?? Just a taste. Btw let me know if there is anything in my cupboard you would like.

Sil

YES! you were supposed to get that from me…yes. yes. yes. i’ll see if i can pull out a sample tonight before i forget..but if i do just keep bugging me.

VariaTEA

Yay! Thank you!!

drank Taurus by Nina's Paris
8067 tasting notes

i think i’m too hot. started to write this note and now i’m not feeling well so into the cold shower i go. long story short, pulled this one out since i need to start working on Jan-march teas lol if i’m going to keep up with my goals. while theres a little more rooibos taste here than i want, it still a tasty treat

Cavocorax shared this one with me, and since it’s a new month i’m doing my best to start focusing back on all the samples i have in my cupboard. I pulled this one out because it’s got ginger, and i love me some ginger :)

on the whole, this one wasn’t bad. it’s still got that familiar adagio smell and taste but at least the ginger comes creeping through. i added a bit of actual ginger to this and that made it pop even more.

ohfancythat (whatshesaid)

Yeah. There is a specific taste and smell to Adagio teas. That’s what I don’t love.

Sil

yep – there are a few exceptions to that but mostly yes. which is why i’m not fussed about not being able to get them easily heh i can pick up the ones i like when i’m in chicago and pass on the rest or swap

drank Frankenberry by 52teas
8067 tasting notes

Another one from VariaTEA that i was looking forwrd to trying after having success with walterbishop from Frank. this smells like koolaid but tastes like a bitter fruit tea. sigh i think i need to give up at this point. Thanks for trying to help me get back into a 52 teas groove Variatea!

VariaTEA

I wasn’t a huge fan of this one either. Though I had friends who enjoyed it. I figured it was safe to assume that you hadn’t try some of the 52 Teas I had so I figured I would share even though I had a feeling you wouldn’t have loved them. You never know unless you try.

Sil

yep! i love trying new things :)

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.
