I agree with you sentiment.

Fuzzy_Peachkin

That’s why my last note is really short.

Indigobloom

that happened to me the other day :(

Terri HarpLady

Yeah, last night I finally gave up & went to bed. So far today seems better.

drank Miami Mango by Steep City Teas
5802 tasting notes

THIS is so much better than i remember! Cold brew for the win! With a teeeeeny tiny bit of sweetner this is a pretty delicious cup of ice tea. It makes my happy as well since this is one of my older teas that i need to get to drinking down. I’m trying to do a multitude of things with my cupboard these days – sipdown 52 teas; get to 150; finish off my small sizes of things; try everything in my cupboard that i have yet tried…. you get the drift. :) At least it makes for a bit of fun, organising and re-organising things haha

While i wouldn’t call this an overly “mango” blend, it is pretty fruity and tasty in cold brew form. not too sweet and not to tart..and totally not hibiscus-y :)

Preparation
Iced 8 min or more
tea-sipper

I love this one.

Sil

I wasn’t crazy about it the first time i had it but cold brewed its delicious!

drank Cotton Candy Black Tea by 52teas
5802 tasting notes

I really do quite like this one cold brewed with a little sweetner. After tonight’s giant mugs i have just enough for one more cup of this before it’s out of the cupboard. May not get to any sipdowns today BUT i am at least well on my way to being able to do a bunch in a row of single cups heh

This is like sweet, cooled liquid cotton candy in a mug. Tasty!

Indigobloom

kinda feels like cheating when I do that lol

drank Assam #1 by thepuriTea
5802 tasting notes

I had this in the morning in my travel mug. It’s part of the joint order that Terri and i shared. I have to say on the whole, this is a fairly average cup. It’s not bad, it’s not great…sort of middle of the road for me in terms of assams. What does that mean? I’ll finish it up, but not order more and it’s another one to cross off my list of “all the teas!” :) thanks terri!

Terri HarpLady

I really wanted to like their teas, & they are ok, but none of them live up to the description, & they don’t look at all like the photos. Oh well, at least they don’t taste bad. I think maybe I’m just too use to awesome over the top teas, haha

Another tea from this morning, but of course i had no time to log anything since it was back to work! I am nearly down to the end of this but i’m ok with that since another order with stacy is imminent! woot woot!

Glad that i’m still loving this one after all this time :)

Rosehips

Had my very first cup of this today. It was wonderful.

Sil

I saw that! Glad you enjoyed it…stacy’s got some amazing teas imo :)

drank Mint Chocolate Matcha by Red Leaf Tea

Had another smoothie with this in the morning. Still a delicious treat, though I maintain that this is one that robust flavouring would be the way to go for me :)

Fuzzy_Peachkin

That DOES sounds quite decadent!

Terri HarpLady

I still have that little vial of matcha you sent me. I should drink that. Remind me…how do you make your smoothie?

Sil

Uh however The fancy strikes me :) milk + ice + frozen banana+ matcha. I like flavouring so I use anywhere from 1.5 to 2 tsp per cup of liquid (milk)

Cold brew of this one and I am loving it! With a bit of lemon and sugar this is the perfect basic iced tea.

Indigobloom

Formosa with lemon?! I must try this

Sil

it just adds a bit of yum to the tea. I’m sure it would be similar for most black teas that are cold brewed. it just worked really well with this one, so i’ll likely finish the rest of what i have by cold brewing heh

Indigobloom

Huh. I’ve never had lemon in anything except for black tea. My curiosity is piqued!

Terri HarpLady

I never add lemon to any of my teas, not even iced. I do, however, love lemon in my water! :)

Indigobloom

Terri, lemon water is da best!!

drank Mint Chocolate Matcha by Red Leaf Tea
5802 tasting notes

oh man…having a smoothie of this one today while i deal with work crap on my day off! I really want this one to be more intense in flavour. This is one that can benefit from Robust Flavouring. This will for sure be a re-order as well whenever i get through some of the many…many…flavours in my cupboard at the moment! lol

drank Chai Matcha by Red Leaf Tea
5802 tasting notes

As part of my ongoing effort to rid my cupboard of things that i don’t enjoy drinking, this one i’m having a final cup of, before sending it “back” to my pregnant friend who pawned hers off on me. haha In this way she gets interest on the tea she was storing at my place and i get one less matcha in my cupboard :)

Terri HarpLady

When’s that baby due anyway?

Sil

Haha October….very soon. She’s started being able to tolerate the smell of tea again so I see this as an opportunity for me to get it out of my house! Since I won’t drink it :)

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.
