drank Zhu Rong Chai by Verdant Tea

missB sent this my way and i’m so glad she did. While this is a great chai, i’m not sure it tops the laoshan village chai from verdant that i love…well unless they keep the winter formulation which i DO NOT LIKE as much. this is a tasty chai, but works better with the addition of a little honey and milk. i do like the difference here though with the zhu rong versus the LB. overall, i’ll probably buy another ounce just to play with it even more as i’d like to try and brew this “proper” :)

drank Orange Kidd by Lupicia

yep, still enjoying this one. it’s not my ultimate orange creamy herbal, but it’ll do in a pinch for now. I’ll have to try and remember to cold brew the rest of my mini amount to see if it holds up that way as well, or if it turns in to a rooibos mess :)

someone edited this tea in between me adding it and getting around to finally writing a review. Not sure what they did but it manage to break my ipad everyone i access it, so i had to come play on the big computer lol. this isn’t a bad darjeeling but it isn’t one that screams out to come be my new favourite. on the whole darjeelings mostly confuse me and taste strange. this one isn’t bad, but again, give me a solid cup of black any day!

boychik sent this one my way and i’m not yet sure how i feel about it. I think this is on the upside of tasty, though there’s a note there that i don’t like as much. i, sadly had this really early this morning and don’t recall much beyond that :) appreicate the share though boychik as it’s given me more to think about in terms of H&S blacks.

Mmmmmfinal cup of tea. Shouldn’t be drinking this one as it’s a more recent purchase but damnit I want the teas that I want today! Lol. I still love this one a lot – such a unique pairing of flavours that really work. So happy omgsrsly introduced this one to me.

Final count: 204 including River tea that came in today heh

OMGsrsly

Omg that is amazing. 204?! After incoming?

Cavocorax

Duuuuuude, that’s awesome! Seriously – 204 WITH Rivertea?

Sil

Yeah but the entire order hasn’t come in lol so just added what has…but it means maybe I can make it to 200 this weekend if I focus. I can’t believe it’s almost the end of June….my craptacular summer of work is about to start.

drank Orange Blossom by Blue Teapot

pulling this one out of my cupboard again as well since i can’t seem to make it work. There is too much of a floral note in this one for me to really be able to enjoy it. oh well, some of the others from this company were nice…and i’m always up for xploring new teas and companies!

drank Orange Path by RiverTea

after trying this a few times i’m now giving up on it. With a cupboard like mine, it’s hardly worth holding on to teas that don’t make you happy drinking them. This hsa turned in to mostly a puerh…there’s very little flavour now, which thankfully at least it’s a decent puerh, but when i’m looking for orange…that’s not worthy enough to keep it around. in to the swap box it goes!

this is another from missb and i do prefer this one over the other. the lemongrass and spearmint is particularly soothing this afternoon. Quite a nice cup for a bagged tea :)

missB sent this one my way and admittedly i figured these could be easy quick sipdowns while i made honey bran muffins :) It’s been a long day that’s not quite over but i am SUPER happy with how the house is starting to come together. I’m really liking the time we’re taking with everything…it’s just been fun.

This cup of tea? reminds me of cookies..or baking..or something, which i think is the result of the cloves in this one. Not a bad cup and for sure it’s an interesting one, so thanks for sharing missb!

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.
