ooooooh tea from omgsrsly I think i’m going to be drinking this one for the rest of the day. I pulled this one out for a hope at something a little more exciting. this is sweet, haylike, with a hint of bitterness should you steep it for too long. i am quite enjoying this one and i’m curious as to how it will fare for the rest of the day. Plus, the leaves are really pretty! more to come later i hope.

drank 2013 Raw Pu-erh by Cultivate Tea

this one comes from omgsrsly As most know, sheng’s don’t usually do it for me but i continue to experiment and try more since i have had a couple that i adored. After playing with this one this morning, i don’t mind it, but it’s not one i’d search out for myself. a young sheng – no bitterness and very easy to drink…just lacking in the excitement department for me :) thanks for sharing omgsrsly!

I like this one specifically because it IS easy to drink. :) You’re welcome!

Another wishlist tea from dexter This seems to be a good every day sort of puerh which to me means, i don’t need to restock this because i want fantastic puerhs. I have every day blacks…when i have and take the time for puerh, i want it to be a great experience, not a decent one. That being said, there’s nothing fundementally wrong with this puerh. It’s smooth and offers slightly earthy notes (not strong) in the beginning and then tapers off to a smooth almost sweeter puerh in later steeps. this was good to kick off the morning, and i’m glad to have tried it. thanks dexter!

drank Live Wire Lemon by DAVIDsTEA

i don’t generally like mate, and while this is yapon or whatever…it’s classified as a “mate” type tea by davids. I figured it was worth a shot though, being as it’s not really mate. I like this one. not enough for it to live with me permanently but i am a fan and will enjoy the small amount that i have of this. It’s like an intense lemon water tea…not a lot of sweet, but it’s also not sour.

And how much of a mate buzz does one get from a cup or two of this? As compared to black tea for example? Or should I even ask someone who manages to down 75 cups a day? :)

Sil

uh caffeine rarely affects me so i’m a terrible person to ask.

Evol Ving Ness

Go figure. :)

I am quite sensitive to caffeine and mate gives me a super rush, lol

I had this one again today – still a little fussy for me, but i think the right magic is brewing hot and then letting it cool. Today this is much more like a middle 80 for me with maty noes and missing that brassy note.

Cooling my Assams has been my recent ah-ha moment.

This one was on my wishlist and dexter did me a favour by sending my a little to try…or maybe it’s not a favour since i think i really enjoy this one. I’ve been drinking it this morning while doing some things around the house. We’re trying to decide if we want to go to niagara for the later afternoon/evening :)

My first steeps of this one were creamy., smooth and dark and delicious. In later steeps i get a litle more cacao, that same smooth strength and a bit of sweetness coming through. Going to keep going with this one over the afternoon i think. thanks dexter!

Farewell tea! i finished off the last of this today – need to get cracking on some sidowns so i opted to finish these out. I’ll miss them, but they’re relatively close to toronto so i can likely pick some up on an excuse to go to detroit :)

Evol Ving Ness

omigoodness, I need to go to Detroit now too? Or find a tea mule.

Sil

heh the tea will come to you….

Good point. Fifteen days into the new year, I still vaguely remember being on board with the not-buying-tea-savings-plan-ok-ok-maybe-Canadian-tea-with-no-currency exchange-and-no-shipping-is-reasonable-especially-if-a-tea-festival-is-coming-up.

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.
