drank Black Currant Bai Mu Dan by 52teas

Cold brewed this and it’s official. I’m done with this. Still a small bit left that I’ll toss into my sample box, provided of course I can ever get the post office to actually deliver to me. nothing sucks more than having the other person who sent me teas feel bad because the mail system can’t get their shit together.

Iced 7 min, 45 sec

Sitting on a call for 5.5hour (and counting) is ZERO fun when you have actual other work to do and can’t leave to go make tea. As a result this one is a little lukewarm because i’ve been holding off drinking it because once it’s gone..i’ve got NADDA at my desk until we fix this issue.

I can get behind this tea, even if the hibiscus makes this more of a sour peach kind of tea. I still enjoy this quite a bit, though i suspect that this would be amazing in summer with a bit of sweetner.

that sounds painful. Not to mention… what about pee breaks??? lol

So i have to say that I’m really glad that this darjeeling is a decent cup of tea. I was a little worried that I was not going to love them, since the first few that i’ve tried, I haven’t liked. This one though, is a pretty tasty cup! It’s not my favourite black tea but this is still an enjoyable cup. I’d love a bit more robustness from this but the tea is smooth and tasty.

drank Blueberry Matcha by Red Leaf Tea

mmm nothing says hello morning like a blueberry cheesecake matcha smoothie and a system crash at work lol This is about 50/50 with blueberry and cheesecake so in theory i could log this as cheesecake as well. I’m really enjoying the combo of the two :)

oh my god this smells divine. The worst part though? It smells like something i’ve had before that was sooo delicious, but i can’t remember what it was. haha. I’d be curious to try the black base version of this to see how it compares. However, that being said the green base is really tasty. It’s not quite REAL mango..but it is mango and it is tasty. I have a feeling that with a teeny bit of sweetner this would really pop! Either that or maybe cold brewed. I’ll have to try both at some point :) for now i’m just enjoying this interesting cup of tea while trying to place where the heck the smell is from.

drank Tangerine Spice by Kally Tea

mmm this is a tasty cup of tea. After Indigo’s review I wasn’t sure what to expect but this is much tastier than her description of this lol I don’t know that i would call this tangerine, but there’s orange! The spice is muted and i’m ok with that because I wasn’t looking for an orange chai tea. :) While there is cinnamon, it’s not overpowering. I just kind of blends in with the tea nicely.

Glad it was a hit for one of us! :)

drank Caramel Cocoa Loco by Kally Tea

I sometimes get this one confused with Kally Tea’s “toffee and cream.” I have to say though, this one is better, though they’re both delicious. There’s something to be said about how this one blends together to have that creamy caramel taste. mmmm!

drank Berry Chocolate by Kally Tea

Another decent tea from Kally tea. There could be a bit more chocolate in here to really make it a home run for me but the berry flavour is quite delicious. There’s a creaminess in this that hints of more chocolate but without coming across as cloyingly artificial. Happy with this one :)

drank Cola Chai by Kally Tea
4726 tasting notes

I have to say, it’s weird to drink teas that taste like cola. This tea doesn’t taste like Coke..but it totally tastes like a chai made with that generic brand cola you pick up at the grocery store hoping no one will notice that it’s not actually coke (or pepsi if that’s more up your alley). The dry aroma of this tea is COLA! it kinda tripped me out a little when i went to brew it.

Once steeped, this is a cola flavoured tea with a bit of spice going on for the chai piece of it. As it cools down, the cola starts to become more a part of the tea. I’d love to try this cold to see how it stacks up. overall, an interesting tea for sure.

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.
