SIPDOWN! (219) That number right there tells me that i’ve been a crazy tea drinker this morning! Looks like i’ll hit 215 this weekend for sure even if i drink no tea on sunday :) This is going on my re-order list for my july order with stacy right away. I have thoroughly enjoyed drinking every last little bit of this one! I love how the banana is not in your face but it’s still obviously there!

sipdown! heh thanks tastybrew for sharing this one with me. My other bag went to kittenna to try :) I actually didn’t mind this one so much. Maybe i’m crazy but it was just kind of a light baked kinda tea.

Sipdown! Nearly time for some caffeine free blends to sipdown while I watch a little tv and relax before I have to try and run some errands before the all nighter tonight. As much as I’ve enjoyed this one, I think that I don’t need to restock it. I much prefer Stacy’s other Assam. Theres an astringency in this one that threatens to come out if you don’t pay attention to it that I’m less fond of. Still a good solid cup of tea but not my favourite Stacy tea :)

drank Pound Cake by sTEAp Shoppe

Sipdown! Still feeling like a lot of the steap shoppes blends taste the same. This one still has that vaguely familiar taste that reminds me of the cinnamon swirl bread minus the cinnamon. An enjoyable cup, but I’d rather be drinking the cinnamon swirl bread.

drank Mint Julep by DAVIDsTEA
5578 tasting notes

mmmm. it’s official, i would love this even more without the coconut. I relaly like the mint and pineapple but with the addition of the coconut it gets to be a bit muddled and doesn’t seem nearly as tasty as it could be. Tossing the last of this in for a cold brew to see if that makes things any more exciting and different! :)

drank English Afternoon by PureAromaTea

sipdown (223) I promise it won’t just be sipdowns today but i DO have lots to drink up if i’m going to reach my goal for this weekend. The rest of this is off to my tea sister so that she gets a chance to drink this as well. Part of the fun of having similar tastes is that it makes sharing that much more fun :) I’d order this again if i needed a decent black brew :)

Terri HarpLady

Plus having a tea sister is just SO awesome!

Sil

haha i agree! :)

drank Thé à l'Opéra by Mariage Frères
5578 tasting notes

SIPDOWN!(224) I tried cold brewing this one to see if the flavours would be more to my liking. Turns out as a cold brew this is a very green tea. The flavours get a little lost in the cold brew. Overall, this isn’t my favourite tea – but that’s not surprising given that it’s a green tea and my preferences lean towards black/puerh. Still glad to have tried it so thank you shmiracles!

Preparation
Iced 8 min or more

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.
