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

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
5583 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

drank Lemon Meringue Chai by 52teas
5583 tasting notes

SIPDOWN! (226) Thanks again to cavo for letting me try this. After a few cups of this i’ve come to the conclusion that while i enjoy it, it’s not something that is out of this world enough to need to keep in my cupboard. I like the lemon addition to the chai but i prefer other chais that i have…though now i might try adding lemon to them :) However, still a pretty darn tasty tea!

Backlog from yesterday. Apparently i was a little tired – came home early and pretty much slept until this morning. It’s sipdown saturday/sunday but i won’t have much time to focus on tea drinking. Release weekend!

I’m aiming to get to 215 this weekend, though i’m not sure how mangeable that is given that i’m currently sitting at 227. But i sure as heck can try! :)

I pulled this one out yesterday because i haven’t had it in a while. It’s still a delicious creamy cakelike tea that is for sure a good one to have for those days you just want liquid deliciousness lol

Terri HarpLady

I really enjoyed this one. If I ever actually place an order from Della Terra, I’d have to get a small amount of this for occasional indulgence.

Sil

this one plus at least one of their rooibos cream tea are about the only teas i’d like to keep around in my cupboard. I think i’m leaning towards the lime chiffon and the orange & cream as staples. heh

had this in the morning. I have a bunch of tea to try and drink tomorrow morning/afternoon before i have to head out to the middle of nowhere to hang out from 6pm-6am. ugh. This is one of those teas that only had a couple cups left so i opted for one this morning and likely tomorrow. I can feel the call of tea ordering…taunting me. Really need to hold off for a bit longer but there’s a part of me that just wants to order naaaaoo!

i still really enjoy this tea. it’s got a nice richness to it, though it’s not quite as strong and bold as i want it to be. still, i’d never turn down a cup!

Dinosara

You can do it! Willpower! :)

Terri HarpLady

I almost drank this one this morning, & again just now. I opted for the Premium taiwanese assam upgrade instead.
I’ve been battling with myself about my desire to order more teas all week (face it, everyday all year is more like it…for years). I just paid bills & gotta come up with another $650 before I’m done paying bills, so no tea buying until then for me. “All of my needs & desires are abundantly fullfilled.”

Sil

Hi, my name is Sil and I’m an addict

Terri HarpLady

Sil….will you be my sponsor? ;)

Sil

Terri….ok but if i am…we need to pass on the tazo order and keep on sipping down!

Sil

hahahahaha….

Cavocorax

:P Well I’m ok passing on the order. I’m pretty much both ways about it right now.

Sil

…and decision made! hiatus continues!

Cavocorax

Woo! That was close! (I’d rather break my hiatus for something I’m sure to like)

drank Strawberry Rhubarb Crumble by DAVIDsTEA
5583 tasting notes

look out world…. i am fully loaded with tea tonight. No idea how i’m not a puddle of melted liquid something. I can feel the water sloshing around in me and it’s soooo good! I had my other half try this tonight and of course it’s a tea that “i would drink this….this would make a great winter tea” why? because this is one of those discontinued teas from david’s tea. So unless it makes a come back…scratch that attempts at getting him to drink more tea lol

oh well….just means there’s hope :)

Cavocorax

Haha. At least he’s trying them and actually liking them. Mine has only liked the 52 Teas Cherry Vanilla Cola iced. And that was only a sip. I still have to make him his own cup. #babysteps

Cavocorax

I hope you don’t have to go to far to get to the bathroom – with all that tea, you’re guaranteed to get up at least once!

Terri HarpLady

I was sloshing last night, we drank a crazy amount of tea here.

Sil

Cavo – you’d think that but I never get up in the night not matter how much I’ve had. :)

drank Elder Berry by Cheryl's Herbs
5583 tasting notes

i figured i would have a cup of this tonight since it’s not really tea. Not to mention that my allergies are acting up AND the last thing i want is to get sick next week before vacation. Terri sent this my way and i haven’t had a chance to try it yet. On the whole this isn’t a bad cup of…drink? haha it’s got a sweet taste to it but with a bit of zing that makes me smile. If there is any truth to the medicinal properties, i could drink this all the time! :)

Chelle

A bit of St. Germaine, elder flower liqueur, might add a little more smile and make you forget about your allergies :)
That stuff is really good in floral and berry teas!

Sil

Huh. Ill have to try that since funnily enough there IS a bottle of that in my house!

Terri HarpLady

Elderberry may not do alot for allergies, I’ll have to send you some Nettles for that. BUT Elderberry is an awesome remedy for colds & flu, it really does work!

Chelle

It does! I like the taste of the thick elderberry syrup that I get at Whole Foods.

Terri HarpLady

I brew it fairly strong, at least 1 Tb to my mug, sometimes stronger, for 5 min or so. Sometimes I sweeten it, usually I don’t.

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.
