Been drinking this over the past few days….nice thing about cold brews is its a good way to finish up larger quantities of teas you don’t love!

Terri HarpLady

Yes, it is!


It is, except I let the whole pitcher sit in the fridge for a week or so before I remember to drink that instead of whatever tea I’m brewing up. Or I give it to the baby if it’s herbal.

Terri HarpLady

I have 2 cold brew projects in the fridge now. One is the puer from yesterday evening. The other one? Hell…I don’t even remember. I started it the night before last, & I recall it being some flavored tea…I guess I’ll find out in a little while.

Tea of choice for a baseball game? This one! I thought of you while I was there terri!


I had this one tho morning….haven’t written about it yet, though.

Terri HarpLady

Yay for Baseball!!
I didn’t get to watch the game tonight, but I was talking to my daughter Jess, while I was cleaning the stove hood, & she was watching the game & telling me what was going on when Allen Craig got the Grand Slam that kicked the Cincinnati Red’s butts!! YEAH!

Sick with a guest here and heading out to travel means ill be quiet around here for a bit I suspect. Montreal tomorrow, Ottawa and the up to the cottage for some much needed RnR. Hoping to get a chance to drop by a couple tea shops but my cupboard will be happy if I don’t haha. Tying to stick to old favourites while I work on getting better even though my tastebuds seem unaffected. Brought this one out with me today when we drove down to Niagara Falls. Yay waterfalls!


Montreal and Ottawa. Sounds like an awesome trip.


Have a great time at the cottage! The rest of your trip sounds great as well. I’m heading up to my cousin’s cottage off of Georgian Bay as well.

Terri HarpLady

You’re still sick? Poor girl, I hope a little vacay time helps.
I almost went to the London Tea Room today. I was just a few blocks from it, & really wanted to stop & have a pot, see if they have anything new, & ogle at all the tea paraphernalia, but I didn’t really have enough time, so I made myself be good.


Take it easy! ;)


I’m feeling better now but my nose is running like nobody’s business. Been through one box of Kleenex in the car today already lol


Aw, Ontario & Quebec! Makes me “home” sick. Have a great trip!


Thanks tassie…

Figured since I was already drinking an oolong, I should have some of this with it. Especially since this is very nearly ready for a sip down which will help out my ever growing cupboard just a wee bit. I haven’t yet added the teavivre teas that came in the mail yet as I don’t want to to pen them until I’m ready to send off the split tea to boxermama and Terri. No sense open the tea before we have to. So I have a number of teas in my house that aren’t in my cupboard, but I don’t consider it cheating since they’re in storage haha sadly that will change In a few week I suspect, when cavocorax arrives in Ontario to claim all her teas from me :) maybe I can get sort of close to 200 before that happens since I know she’s bringing tea with her from the gang out west!

This one is nothing I need to keep in my cupboard because I just don’t drink a lot of oolongs. Nthing wrong with this tea but I think I’d likely stock the milk oolong from mandala first if I were picking any to have in my cupboard all the time :)

Terri HarpLady

I’ve already included all of those teas on my inventory, lol


If it helps any, you have 5 samples coming from OMGsrsly, and up to nine from me. I won’t make yours too big though cuz if you love any of them we can always get more. (Or I can send you more of mine)


Send? Haha no sending. You’re stuck with meet ups now…..unless you’re totally a weirdo * grin*

drank Silk Dragon by The Tea Merchant
5919 tasting notes

Sip down! This is one that kitenna should try if she hasn’t already. Th smell and taste remind me of the mandarin silk from the persimmon tree that I gave up to her because I didn’t like it haha. Tis version, or variation, that I received in my swap from nicole is tastier. I don’t hate this one, and the flavours seem to mesh better than the one I tried from the persimmon tree. Maybe it’s because I’m sick but I suspect that this might be a win for the girls here who are fans of oolongs. Nonetheless I am enjoying this cup, so I’m glad Nicole sent it along. Not a reorder for me, but only because I’m not a huge fan of green oolongs. But those who enjoy that type of tea would probably quite enjoy this one :)

drank Lime Jello Salad Green Tea by 52teas

Had this one earlier as well…maybe not the best idea but I have zero clue today what my taste buds will be ok with and what they won’t so everything is a guessing game haha. Dank this once It cooled off and it was much better.

drank White Christmas by 52teas
5919 tasting notes

Brewed this one today at a really really low temp (like for greens) and it brewed up much nicer than before. I’m really not overly fond of finishing this one up though, so if I don’t like it the next time, maybe ill swap the rest away.

Sip down! Having the last of this today as a latte. This package didn’t taste nearly as delicious as the first time I ordered it, which makes me a little sad. Nt sure what’s changed but ill likely stick to some of the other mint chocolate teas that I’ve tried.

Loving a small cup of this today on my sore throat. Still enough to have another last cup once I’m feeling better, but this morning, this is delicious.

drank Cherry Pu-erh by Nature's Tea Leaf
5919 tasting notes

Spdown! Figured thiswould be a good one to have since I’m not well today…both the piers and the cherry being strong enough to it through any sick that might be messing with my taste buds. Haha I was right. While this is a pretty good puerile blend from natures tea leaf, I’d prefer to see if they have a flavour other than cherry since this one is a little artificial tasting as you go through the package. I love that the puerh taste doesn’t get drowned out by the cherry flavour! Over all a really nice tea from natures tea leaf, just would rather a different flavour :)


It’s so hard to get good cherry! Hope you feel better soon. I have been sick topo :(


Booooo for sick!


Oh geez, autocorrect got you good..puerile blend? :D Hope you feel better soon.

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.
