this tea has made me super sad. I love stacy’s bana flavour..and yet with this one i’m getting awhole lot of oolong..with only an after taste of banana…. and while there’s a bit of a sweetness there…it isn’t butterscotch to me…or walnut. le sigh. At least someone else out there will love this i’m sure!

Kittenna

Gotta try this…

Nattie

I didn’t pick any of this up, if you want to wap a tiny sample of it my way…

Sil

Nattie

drank Mei Zhan Zhen by Camellia Sinensis

mmmm tasty tea from Dexter Since this year will be the year of Canadian companies…who let you buy in CANADIAN DOLLARS thank you very much, we’re trying to get through as many samples of teas as possible from various companies. this one is a deliciously tasty black tea. it’s a little floral like but it’s also sweet..not honey leafhopper sweet, but still sweet. This is a tea that is lighter…but not lacking in flavour. Overall another enjoyable tea from Camelia!

Cavocorax

I’m still shaking my head at those shenanigans. Sneaky.

Sil

just another X against their name in my books

Kittenna

I think I missed something.

OMGsrsly

Zen Tea was poopy and changed their currency to USD on the sly then announced a sale.

Kittenna

That is unbelievable. (Yet not, because, you know. But still. Screw them.)

Sil

meh..i’m still bitter about that issue we had 2? yrs ago lol

Cavocorax

Yeah, that was bs. :|

drank Midday Flight by Tippy's Tea
6037 tasting notes

Another share from cavocorax which was great because it let me NOT place an order with tippy teas, and still get a chance to try out a couple. Now i know that an order will be placed in future…once i get my cupboard under control! This is a relatively nice black tea. Nothing crazy out of this world, but it’s nice and smooth, with a little bit of heft to it so that it’s not on the wimpy side of things. There’s a little bit of maltiness here but not overwhemlingly enough for me to be like WOAH MALT TEA! :) A nice afternoon cup!

TippysTea

“… Once I get my cupboard under control!”

I’ve told myself that lie as well. For every one tea I finish two seem to magically appear in its place. Sometimes I don’t know whether it is an problem or a blessing.

Glad you enjoyed the tea. You pretty much got what we were trying to do. A lovely afternoon cup. We were hoping for a tea that you could sit down, drink, enjoy, have flavour. By the time you drink your cupboard down we should have several new teas as well. We have quite a few ideas in the pipeline.

Hillel

Yup, your experience of this tea matches mine. It’s rich and flavorful with some maltiness, but not heavy at all. A terrific blend. Gonna order more for sure.

Sil

Tippy – that’s great news. I’m looking forward to spending my money on canadian companies this year and you are on that semi short list haha luckily i’m the queen of sipdowns, so i should be down to 110 soonish…well once i get the other 60+ inbound hahahahaha

OMGsrsly

Definitely something for me to check out! Sounds good. :) And I think Cavo and CrowKettle have samples making their way to me, so I’ll have a good idea of what I like!

Sil

oh good. glad you’re getting some!

i love this. I don’t get a lot of the pistachio toffee flavour but the orange in this is FANTABULOUS! I didn’t add any sort of sweetner to this and the orange just made me melt. I confess i drank most of this cold because it sat while i was doing some things, but i have high hopes for this hot, with just a teeeeny bit of sweetner!

drank Huoshan Huang Ya Yellow by What-Cha

opted to try this one today. I’ve had a few yellow teas before and only one ever knocked my socks off. I’ve been searching for a similar one ever since. This one is pretty good. It’s got a delicious fresh and juicy flavour to it, while not falling into that trap of tasting like a green tea. Yep..even as this one cooled, it was just really tasty and delicious! I’ll likely pick this one up again since it’s the closest i’ve come to finding that one yellow tea i loved.

Maddy Barone

I haven’t tried yellow tea yet. I may look for this one when I order again from What-Cha.

Sil

it was tasty!

MissB

I have a few yellow’s at home I should send you, if/whenever I get back. Or, just stay at my place when you go to Vancouver, then you can raid my cupboards!

Sil

hahahaha i may still take you up on that :)

this one didn’t float my boat this morning. I’m not sure what i was about it but it just didn’t have a deep, rich taste or really taste like much. I’ve got just a wee little bit left though that i’ll send over to dex as maybe she can figure this one out :)

man…last tea of the evening…so not fair…everyone else is getting their mystery boxes from butiki and mine still isn’t even in canada. i swear the post office hates me! still loving this one, though tonight i accidentally brewed it longer than 2 mins…so it’s spicy! even with honey….but soooooo good!

Final Count: 156 (with like 30-60 on their way…. ugh!)

Cavocorax

It’s totally not fair! Did you peek to see what was in our boxes, or are you waiting to be surprised?

Sil

i read what was in yours… it’ll still be a surprise…you think i can remember anything with like 60+ teas all coming in at once?

herbal teas before bed….still enjoying this one and not much else to say beyond the fact that BEING SICK SUCKS!

Cavocorax

I feel like I’m getting sick too and it’s probably your fault. :P (I know, that makes NO SENSE, but I’ve been fine ALL YEAR and then I meet you and BAM. Sniffle-city)

Sil

hahaha it’s because you left your natural habitat for a weekend

Cavocorax

Perhaps. PER-HAPS….

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.
