drank English Breakfast by Harney & Sons
5597 tasting notes

So this has been my only tea for the past few days while travelling for work again. I’m back home again but only for a day before it’s off again. I’m hoping i’ll get a bit of a chance to have a few delicious cups tomorrow morning before it’s back to drinking this again…since i MAY have taken a few extra bags from the hotel i was in haha. I actually am ok with this one in bagged form, though i’d like to try it in loose form. I also haven’t yet figured out if i like the normal version or the “organic” version better…unless they’re both the same thing but package differently lol. all in all, happy to be home…will be nice when i can stay here for a few weeks in a row!

Final Count: 87 (courtesy of the single cup samples cookies sent me..so i’ll be back down in no time!)

I have this in loose form if you want to try it. :)

Sil

Oh. May take you up on that when I get back from my next leg of travel, provided I haven’t forgotten lol

caile

haha, OK. :)

I snurched all four bags of this from our hotel room in October, too. :)

drank Earl Grey Supreme by Harney & Sons

Spa room at the trump and for once, there’s a kettle in the room! and tea bags! So because KS was giving me grief on the blerg, i figured i should open this one up and try it at the very least.

Still not a fan of the blerg but this isn’t awful….but it’s not delicious either. I can handle drinking this because i’m cold in the room, but i may need to see if they’ll bring me up more english breakfast instead haha. This is smooth…and i like the base, but the blerg needs to go! :)

Anna

Make sure you make room for pizza!

Sil

It’s hard! Free chocolates just arrived hahaha

Ysaurella

raaaaah blergamot…for me it’s bellegamot :) did you try some MF ? from far they are always my favs among all bergamot teas.

Nicole

Spa room, kettles, H&S teabags and free chocolates. I want to visit! :)

Anna

…and the view of the lake. The VIEW. Of the LAKE.

Sil

I don’t think I have ysaurella.
Nicole – chicago trump…come on down! Lol

OMGsrsly

Yes, ask them for more tea! And eat some pizza for me, OK? :)

K S

At least you are willing to try – there is hope some future blend will show you the error of your ways ;)

Sil

small cup of this today as my last cup of tea. I need to order more of this when i get home. i am really enjoying it. just some interesting notes in here..it reminds me of some other tea that i’ve had but maybe that’s just the taiwanese factor… :)

DigniTea

This one is on the way to me now. Glad to hear you like it! I’ll miss all these interesting fine black teas Stacy finds for us all!

Sil

Kittenna

drank Nina's Japon by Nina's Paris

second last cup of the morning so i thought i’d make it a good one. I am a fan of this one – possibly my favourite nina’s tea…no it IS. i really like the gemaicha/caramel/vanilla creamy deliciousness that’s going on here, and it’s nice that it’s not my usual black tea (only half!) haha

had a cold brew of this today – trying to make sure i hydrate. I still love this, though i think it may end up sitting on the shelf a little more until the weather warms up. maybe i should take it with me to jamaica hahaha

drank Ambangulu - Tanzania by Tea Time
5597 tasting notes

sipdown! airport time in an hour or so and i’m scrambling to get a few more things organised as well as a bit of work done and tea drunk up lol I finished off this one since i’ll have maybe a half day of tea drinking in november with the travelling that’s happening so i might as well get a few sipdowns in :) This one has grown on me…i found with about 2.5 min steepings it was a perfect morning cup…a little bold, a little astringent but smooth and just what i need in the morning :)

drank Campfire Blend by Verdant Tea

last cup of the evening. Make note, watching the strain when it’s dark out, you’re home alone and it’s been snowing outside…not the best idea. lol not that i scare myself or anything but maybe happy shows are a better idea. Iforgot to pick up more of this with my last verdant order, so i’ll need to try and remember. I really like this one in the fall/winter. it’s a cosy go to evening tea.

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.
