Had this again this morning and i’m glad that i did. It was a comforting blend to have. I have to say though, not sure i’ll get 9 cups out of the ounce – feels more like 6 (and that’s 6 normal size cups not my double cups). not a huge deal but i haven’t felt like i’m overleafing, but maybe i have been. Either way this is a really delicious blend and not overly in your face. I like how subtle it is…makes me happy!

figured i might as well try this one again tonight after having the zen tea version last night. Ill stick to this version thanks! could be the same supplier for all i know but this version seems so much creamier and raspberrier for me. I’m really enjoying this as an end to the evening. I didn’t get as much tea drinking in, but what i’ve had tonight has been delicious!

drank Mango by Harney & Sons

I finished off the last of this tonight (233) as it was only a “normal” person’s cup left. I may need to order my own of this one if i ever get around to placing a harney’s order…though i suspect there may be others from harney that wind up taking a front seat to this one if i have to limit my choices lol still though…like the black + mango in this one. thanks fiddling

sipdown! had a cup of this tonight while working on a failed recipe…was trying to make salted caramel brownies and my caramel refused to harden. oh well. At least i tried? still waiting on the final verdict of the sloppy mess i was left with though lol this tea? still relatively enjoyable :) thanks kittenna!

Sil

fiddling sent this to me a while back and i’m still working through all of my swaps from people. I tried this as a cold brew first to see how it fared. I have to say that this isn’t too bad. The flavours aren’t crazy strong but it’s a tasty sort of cold brew that i could easily get behind this summer – something my other half might even enjoy drinking! thanks fiddling!

Iced 8 min or more

drank Assam Fine Leaf by PureAromaTea
5578 tasting notes

Dug this out of the cupboard this morning for my black tea to take to work. This one isn’t half bad and in a pinch would work as a decent every day tea…if i didn’t already have a few favourites in that department. That being said though, it’s still a lovely tea and didn’t have any sort of astringency to deal with.

Preparation
Boiling 3 min, 0 sec

drank Raspberry Vanilla by Zen Tea
5578 tasting notes

last tea of the evening as i’m trying to make sure to have a cup or two of some of the samples and smaller sizes that i have in my giant box of TEA! Mostly so that maybe I can manage a few sipdowns on the weekend from tea that will finally be good to be sipped down. Right now i have an abundance of teas that will take 2-3 days to be sipped down. This of course makes it hard to manage my one sipdown a day but i’ll keep trying!

I’m not a huge fan of this one, but i don’t hate it either. It’s for sure a creamy sort of raspberry tea. The one thing i don’t like as much is that i can taste the rooibosy flavour a little more than i like. I much prefer when the rooibos isn’t as distinctive in blends. likely part of the reason i enjoy della terra’s chiffon’s. In any case, this isn’t bad but nothing i feel the need to order.

Thank you Cavocorax for sharing this one with me!

Edit: And if you live in an internet black hole and haven’t visited www.google.com today….just go do it.

drank Pina Colada Honeybush by 52teas
5578 tasting notes

why hello there coconut, pineapple tea. I picked this up a little while ago and it just arrived. Now as some of you might know i don’t really like coconut, but i do LOVE pineapple AND i was curious about the blend that won 3rd place. I’ve had a few other winners in various categories so it’s neat to get to try them. I was able to pick this one up with a couple others for a steal and a share with kittenna.

This tea? it’s pretty darn good and i can understand why it won :) I’m not overly a fan of the coconut but i can get behind it nonetheless. I’ll likely also try cold brewing this sometime as well just to see how the flavours work out that way :) I do like how this blends with the honeybush quite a bit.

drank Dark Chocolate Tea by sTEAp Shoppe
5578 tasting notes

pretty sure that this tea falls into the no thanks category. I think it might actually be the espresso in it that is doing me in. While i like coffee and espresso, it turns this tea into more of a coffee type blend that it does a dark chocolate. It’s not a terrible tea but it’s not somethings that wows me at all. Also, something in the aroma of this one is turning me off a little. might have to toss my unopened sample into the swap box! Hopefully someone else will love it more than me :)

Cavocorax

NO sir. I don’t like it. I don’t like it all.

I like coffee, and I definitely prefer tea, but I don’t like my tea and coffee flavours to mix.

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.
