SIPDOWN!

Dropping the rating on this one a little as it’s not nearly as delicious as i remember from my first run through it. I think as i’ve tried more and more teas, i’ve come to grow fonder for those dark robust blacks, while the “lighter” blacks have less appeal for me. Not that this is a bad tea, but it’s not going to be my favourite ever. :)

drank Orange & Cream by Della Terra Teas
5059 tasting notes

So i REAAAALLLLLY wanted one last cup of tea before bed and Della totally just put their teas on sale (again) so i couldn’t help it, i had to go sit down and measure out my portion of this tea in the shared order with the girls. Mostly, in case i decide i need to order more. So uh up one in my cupboard sigh You know what though? totally worth it. I don’t love this more than the lemon and lime chiffon but i do really enjoy this for it’s own reasons. I still think i prefer the orange lapacho tea Indigobloom found BUT this might be a decent substitute.
The orange isn’t as strong as i want it to be, but it IS still present and still has an almost creamy taste to it. mmmm yeah, i could have a bit more of this in my cupboard.

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more

drank Winter Nog by Della Terra Teas
5059 tasting notes

pssssst guess what? 200 teas! that means i just need to find a way to sipdown 10 teas tomorrow haha Not sure if that’s actually doable but we can see :) If nothing else, i’m still pretty proud of myself for getting down this far in 3 weeks. After the weekend with the girls i was at something stupid like 320+ and now i’m at 200. That being said, I have incoming swaps and orders, but there’s no mail until monday haha.

This one? I’d probably order it again. I rather enjoy the creaminess of the rooibos and it’s a nice change from the other fruitier rooibos blends that i like and love. It’s just not a tea i see myself wanting all that much in summer, so maybe i’ll hold off until the fall again.

Indigobloom

Urm, not sure you meant to say that you got fat! lol
Cuz I don’t think you did!!

Sil

stupid autocorrect

Kaylee

Congrats!

Sil

thanks! :) course i added one to my cupboard but i have faith in my tea drinking skills! I also don’t have to leave the house until like 2pm. of course then there’s that whole sleep in? or get up to start drinking! haha

Kaylee

The solution is obvious. Get up. Make tea. Take tea to bed and drink it until you fall asleep again. Repeat as necessary. :)

Cavocorax

That’s awesome. I’m so impressed that you can not only drink all that tea, but that you can log it all too.

Dinosara

Yay proud of you :) we should all live by your stash busting example.

whatshesaid

Wow!! Awesome job. This sounds tasty ,

Sil

Dino….yeah except now I have all my larger size teas left lol so going to be much slower until orders come in with sample sizes haha

drank Trina's Tiramisu by T by Daniel
5059 tasting notes

SIPDOWN!

I rather enjoyed this one, though the after taste does leave my mouth a little dry. I really like the way that the tiramisu flavour has been captured. Overall this is something i would for sure drink again, though it doesn’t need to be a permanent re-stock. :)

Pretty much took a sip of this, made a face, took another sip and then poured the rest down the drain. It was like a mix of licorice and ginger…which wouldn’t be too bad, but it wasn’t the delicious kind of licorice. Not to mention that i pulled the star anise out of the brew basket before brewing it. so yeaaah. no. thankfully, sipdown!

Cavocorax

Sounds like such an odd combo! Too bad, because I like star anise but am iffy about ginger.

drank Mango Silly Antro by Custom (Butiki)
5059 tasting notes

Having a few delicious cups of this with dinner tonight. Cilantro in the enchiladas! and cilantro in the tea! that’s pretty much the only reason i did that, plus it’s so very nearly a sipdown lol AND my mango lassi tasting note reminded me that i do have this other mango blend from stacy

I am enjoying the fruity mango-ness of this tea quite a bit :)

Indigobloom

I had this cold brewed today. Not as good as I’d hoped :/

Sil

noooooooooooo don’t tell me that! lol I tossed the last of it in a cold brew so that i can drink it up tomorrow haha

Indigobloom

oh. take a sip after two or three hrs and see what happens with that!! :)

Sil

i’ll be sleeping at that point lol

drank Creamy Eggnog by Butiki Teas
5059 tasting notes

backlog from earlier today – still a delicious creamy tea that’s perfect for those days when i just want something delicious to accompany my black morning tea!

whatshesaid

Lol, do you sit there with two cups of tea at once??

Sil

yes lol i am often drinking two cups at once lol

whatshesaid

I often wondered how you manage to get through so much tea every day with all these sipdowns!!

Sil

haha i drink quite a bit :) it helps that i can take time at work in the afternoons, to refill my two travel mugs that i bring with me to work to sip those throughout the afternoon as well, instead of having to keep making cups at work. If i had to, i’d rarely get to making some because of how busy ti gets.

drank Mango Lassi by Butiki Teas

backlogging from earlier today

I am still enjoying this one quite a bit, though i’m not sure if i’ll restock it. I tend to find that there are other flavoured teas i moev towards first when i’m looking for a rooibos. That being said, I would love another mango flavoured black or something like that from stacy as this is pretty kick ass in terms of mango-licious taste!

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.
