A cup of tea to help wake me up this morning. I needed something black to help get me going this morning since this weekend was a bit of a whirlwind with the tea ladies coming over and a work friend staying over for the entire weekend. A fantastic weekend but it made for a few late nights so i’m suffering a little this morning. Almost out of this one but there are a few more cups left. Have to make room for more stacy teas!

Sip down! Had a few cups of this tonight with Sharon. Thanks to kittenna for letting me try a bit of this. While I find its a great lemon lime tea, there is not so much of the cheesecake flavour happening here. Slightly disappointing, but because it IS a nice lemon-lime tea, its hard to be upset with it lol

Starfevre

Why is it that I only find lime flavours in honeybush? Frustrating!

Sil

i’ll keep an eye out for you

Kittenna

Have you tried Lime Gelato from DavidsTea? And I have heard good things about Lime Fizz from The Tea Haus, although I don’t recall the base on that one.

Shmiracles

uh oh…
lime gelato…
added to cart.

Kittenna

Just FYI, it does contain dairy :(

Starfevre

I’ll add them to my shopping list since I’ve been trying not to buy anything. Except more matcha next month. Because I need more matcha, really. (Not really)

Starfevre

Or at least the DavidsTea one. The other one impinges upon my intense loathing of all things ginger.

Mmmm finally getting a chance to try this one as we opened and split our joint orders yesterday. It tastes ALOT like frank’s strawberry pie honey bush only slightly creamier. I’m not quite getting milkshake but it IS a delicious blend.

drank Nina's Japon by Nina's Paris

Sip down!

I am really enjoying this. I actually like this better than 52 teas marshmallow genmaicha, likely because of the increased caramel goodness in it. I actually think that I’d like to have a small quantity of this in my cupboard permanently. I think kittenna might be right though, in that the black tea doesn’t add much to the blend though.

Indigobloom

single serving samples… I’ve been wrestling with whether that counts as a sipdown!

Sil

Oh shut up lol they’re in my cupboard….so they are sip downs :p

Indigobloom

lol thats why I drink them before they go in my cupboard!!

Thank you Nina’s Paris for these samples!

I’m not sure this one is the tea for me. I really like the way the black base is blending with the flavours, but I’m getting more of an orange cherry than being able to pick up the strawberry as well. The result is a strangely weird citrusy bolder black tea. The strawberry is lingering in the after taste the more I drink this one. Not one I’d purchase, but I’d never turn down a cup. :)

Also…sip down! Lol

I think I’m finally getting tired of this blend, it appears 2oz is a bit much for me to drink my way through before I am done with drinking a blend from della terra. However, this is a nice blend and is one of my happy teas from della terra, given that I don’t love a lot of them. They’re decent average teas though, with this one being one of my higher rated teas :)

Fjellrev

Would you say that it’s similar to DT’s Pumpkin Chai?

Sil

Incendiare….uh hopefully kittenna will see this. I have no clue, I don’t really drink davids tea heh if she does and it’s something you’d enjoy then I’m happy to send you the rest of my bag if you like lol

Fjellrev

Whoops sorry, I forgot you’re not a huge fan of DT. I should just go and read through the reviews. You don’t have to worry about sending me anything! But damn, I know, we should still do a swap sometime.

Sil

No apologizing :) raritea is trying to make me drink davids teas one tea at a time Single handedly lol so I have tried a few

Kittenna

I think I did a comparison of the two at some point, and preferred this version. DT’s is more spicy, but I think Della Terra nailed “pumpkin pie”. Of course, the blends weren’t intended to be the same thing, so it makes sense that they’re a bit different. I don’t really recall what else I may have said, lol.

Amariel

I almost had this tonight but realized we were out of milk, so I made the Browncoat Genmaicha instead. This does smell very good, so maybe I will have some of this tomorrow, or the Orange Brûlée.

Sip down! Yay!

Thanks again to Ysaurella for this swap! I still don’t catch the marzipan flavours that others have – maybe my taste buds are broken :) but this is a delicious tea and one that I quite enjoyed.

drank Montagne de Jade by Mariage Frères

SIPDOWN!

I cold brewed the last of this sample from Ysaurella the other day and I can say that this is a MUCH better tea cold brewed. It becomes a lot less floral and the blending of the green tea just works out better. Glad i got to try this one cold brewed.

Preparation
Iced 8 min or more

Yesterday’s adventures were a rousing success and lots of fun but now my cupboard is over 310 teas…so uh i need to get my drink on especially since there are a couple of swaps on their way as well. FML. hahah talk about first world problems.

Really enjoyed this one, though i DO prefer the majesties version.

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.
