Finished the last of this yesterday. I’ll probably pick up more eventually, but we’ll see. I may hold out until November when i get to go to Chicago and see if there’s anything i want there first :)

i have 2013, 2014 and 2015 in my cupboard courtesy of terri. Today i figured i’d try 2013 vs 2014. Only slight difference between the two, though 2014 makes me think of marshmallow + yams. go figure lol

made this as a latte today ‘cause it’s been a long cold day. Wanted something creamy and warm and delicious. This fit the bill. Soooo good as a latte as well!

drank Bai Lin Kung Fu by Shang Tea

mmmm thank you Nicole for sending this my way. Still a fan of this tea…it’s like drinking a warm cinnamon bread…something in this being sweet, and slightly bready. Not sure why i’m getting cinnamon out of this one, but i am. so there. ha!

drank Russian Caravan by The Tea Spot

I’ve had this one before courtesy of terri and while i enjoy the brewed tea, especially with a splash of maple syrup, the aroma is hard for me to stomach. Something about the wet leaf in water just makes me not want to drink the tea. it’s unfortunate because i DO enjoy the tea, but so hard to get passed the aroma heh

This one from terri is more up my alley. Spring 2015 is the version she sent me. It’s not a bold malty tea, but there is more going on here to make it a more complex brew than the last tea. This has a great smooth taste, but without becoming bold and dark. There’s maybe some hints of sweetness here…but sweet like a rich caramel versus a fruit. Interesting tea to try. Thanks terri!

I aim to please :)

Another from the box ox delights that Terri sent me. This one is interesting, but not a purchase for me. it’s got a floral like sweetness to it that isn’t my favourite. I don’t get any chocolate notes out of this one…just a thinner tasty brew. I prefer my bold delicious malty teas :) Happy to have tried it through!

drank Honeycrisp Apple by DAVIDsTEA

meh. this is sweet..but the base is hidden….i get more pear than apple…and the overall flavour is muted and tastes artificial. Glad i picked up just enough for a cup.

Nicole sent this one my way and it.is. lovely. I wasn’t sure what to expect, but i’ve had other justeas that i loved, so i wasn’t worried. this is sweet, but also smooth. Just a really nice fall black tea for today. Little more to play with so yay for that!

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.
