Cold brew of this tonight with a splash of ginger ale added to it. Delicious!

drank Gingerbread by DAVIDsTEA

I had a cup of this tonight while watching World War Z – overall not a bad cup of tea. I don’t get the red velvet cake that others do, instead this is just a decent ginger-ish sort of rooibos tea without being overly rooibosy. I only picked up enough for 2 or so Sil sized servings and that’s enough for me. it’s not amazing enough to warrant a larger purchase even if it is another ginger/non caffinated tea.

Preparation
Boiling 7 min, 15 sec

tony & I watched that movie a couple of hours ago!

Terri HarpLady

I think the previews made it look a lot scarier than it actually turned out to be

tea-sipper

The book is AMAZING but the previews for the movie don’t seem to fit the book.

Terri HarpLady

I read the online info, about both the book & the movie, & of course, the storyline doesn’t follow the book exactly…does it ever? LOL

Tea Sipper – I really enjoyed the book too, so I wasn’t very excited about the movie based on the previews. I guess the movie is based on parts of the book? Seeing as the book is more episodic, following different people in different countries, instead of one smooth narrative, it doesn’t really make the best adaptation… It was entertaining enough, but don’t expect too much.

drank Tangier Apricot by American Tea Room
6479 tasting notes

sipdown! (158) I made some of this up cold brew to see how it compares to the hot version and it’s not half bad. I do really like that this is apricot and not peach. it’s a nice change from all the peach teas i overdosed on when i first started drinking tea last year. Cold, this is nearly as nice as the hot version, though it doesn’t really pop until i added a bit of sugar. Yum!

Preparation
Iced 8 min or more

Have you tried the Harney Apricot yet?

Sil

i have not! Still hoping to be able to make it to new york for a weekend or something to buy in the store instead of online…

farewell delicious tea. I’ll think of you often on my imaginary trips back to france in my mind :) I still enjoy this one, in part because the flavouring doesn’t overpower the tea base. Loved it! will miss it!

sipdown! (160) I’m excited since i found a tea listed in my cupboard that I drank a while back and forgot to remove. Thereby allowing me to make it to 160 today! and it’s barely 1pm! woohoo! Maybe i can make it to 155 lol Probably not but it’s fun to dream..

Most of this has left the building as a result of sharing matcha with steepserites. I have a metric ton of the stuff in my house so i’m trying to share lol I’m not a huge fan of this one, while it’s better than the raspberry truffle to me, the only way that i enjoy drinking this is in latte form with a little sugar. I don’t like adding sweetener to my matcha so this makes it less enjoyable that other flavours. I’m wondering if it’s just the raspberry flavour that i just don’t like. As well, in any case it’s still drinkable, just not the sort of flavour i most prefer :)

OMGsrsly

Well, I thank you for sharing it with me, as I really liked it. :) I tend to put a little sugar in most flavored teas, so I don’t mind so much. Still healthier than sbux!

Sil

Yes!

drank Imperial pu-erh shu by Tao Tea Leaf

sipdown! (162) You know what goes amazingly well with puerh? Pumpkin pie fudge. Yeah…it’s barely lunch time but i’m totally enjoying a small piece of fudge with this puerh. This is a pretty tasty puerh. It lacks some of the intricacies of some of my favourite puerh, but this would do in a pinch anytime! It’s got depth to it, which i really enjoy and it held up well over a number of steepings.

tried this one again today – not a fan. Sipdown since i’ll pawn the rest of this off to other tea friends who like to try new things haha :) It’s just not the right berry flavour that i’m looking for.

sipdown! This has been my mid morning puerh while i try and figure out the monstrosity that is my other half’s new coffee maker. lol It’s a breville gind n’ brew thing and takes up a ton of room. However, it makes him happy and since we got it for free with my airmiles, i can hardly complain.

This is a lovely puerh! I’m so glad that nofars shared it with terri who shared it with me. This is one of the few puerhs not from mandala that i’ve had that i really enjoy. It’s a very relaxing, dark and roasty sort of puerh for me. Initial steeps were good and then it unfolded into a deep delicious cup of goodness as it progressed. :) thank you both!

sipdown! another tasty almond tea. I’m trying to drink other teas alongside my puerhs today to help with the sipdowns. This one was altogether pretty tasty, though not my favourite almond tea :)

drank 2005 Ye Sheng Wild Tea Log by Norbu Tea

sipdown! I have a lofty goal today of trying to get down to 160 so that by next weekend i might possibly have reached my black friday goal, two weeks ahead of schedule. It’s lofty because i have a large number of puerhs to drink and those take time..however i’ve been up since 5am because of work so i think i’ll manage a few more than usual haha

this is a light, sweet, floral puerh. It’s pretty meh for me but i think that’s because it’s closer to a white tea than anything.

Terri HarpLady

Since I can’t get in as many sipdowns as I’d like this weekend, I’ll live vicariously though yours ;)
I have quite a few puerh samples here, & once I drink them I’ll have quite a few sipdowns to log, but I don’t want to rush through them, because I really do want to experience them in full. Maybe I should start getting out of bed a little early…lol

Sil

that’s my problem right now. puerhs take forever because i want to sip through as many steepings as possible. Not sure where i’ll end up but i have plans for this week if i don’t manage too much today. Depends on whether i have to nap later haha

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.
