This was a tea from yesterday…with the maintenance and getting packages in the mail i needed time to get things in to my cupboard lol. My high count for the moment is 128..though if everything on it’s way arrived tomorrow i’d be closer to 160 + extra teas from missB I’m ok with that though, since that means i get to spend the rest of 2015 working my way back down to 50. Yep…that’s my goal for year end lol. Strangely, i’ve sort of been gravitating to this one in the evening…maybe for that pop of “sunshine” in these colder winter days. With a teeny bit of sweetner, this one really works for me hot and cold.

I also had this tea last night, brewed hot…and it made me realise how much i love this tea when it’s cold brewed, steeped in part apple juice. LOL I vastly prefer it that way for that sweet, sour tang. Just trying to help keep my system primed and ready to keep fighting all the sick that is going on at work these days.

Yes. So much sick, everywhere. I believe I’m currently fighting the flu (fever + body aches + everything else) and it sucks.

Experiment time! I’m home today so i figured it would be the perfect opportunity to compare both of tao’s rice tuo’s side by side.

1st steep – this one remains largely intact versus the sheng…the brew is a light golden liquor and the aroma is slightly rice like and also slightly…sweet? This one tastes like rice at the get go…the brew is a little, almost bitter but not quite, and then mellows almost immediately in my mouth to a smooth brew…

Stephanie

Yum this is a good one :D

boychik

1st steep – this one starts to break apart a lot faster than the shou…the brew is darker and the aroma is stronger…this one smells more like rice than the other. the brew is..plain, average…not super intense, but smooth with the rice flavouring being more on the tail end of the swallow than in the initial sips…

hmmmm more to come i’m sure.

Stephanie

Never had the sheng version!!!

Sil

i think i like the shou version better…but i’ve got more steeps to go

TheLastDodo

:( I wanted to compare these as well! But the group order I did left out the shou…

drank Yu Lu Yan Chai by Verdant Tea (Special)

I pulled this one out of the cupboard yesterday as well. I am STILL not a fan of goji berries in my chai but as long as they’re there, i can pick them out without too much fuss. I still prefer loashan black chai to this one, but this is also a really tasty one. it’s nice to have both back in my cupboard to get me through the rest of winter – which is the only time i really love drinking chai. :)

Final Count yesterday: 103 (because i didn’t add the teas i received from Cavocorax yet…)

Anlina

I love goji berries but they sound like a really weird addition to a chai.

So the downside to loving this tea is that i am starting to slip in to hoarding mode this month…because i know that come the end of January i’ll be doing a final count and then start working my way down to 50 teas in my cupboard for the end of the year….in order to DO that i need to buy less tea, and drink everything in my cupboard. BUT because the dolllar is so terrible this year, i’m really going to be focusing on ordering from canadian tea companies whenever possible. and this is NOT one of those companies :( oh well…at least i have about 90g left… heh

HAH, I love it. Hoarding mode… btw 90 grams left! ;P

mmmmm i’ve been bad lately…drniking tea, not doing tasting notes….generally i’m just really tired these days. Wedding planning and vacation planning are exausting. Plus work has slowed down, so i find that i’m bored and apathetic at work so i’m trying to make projects to keep my entertained lol

I have had this a number of times since omgsrsly restocked me. It’s still going strong in terms of my general like for this tea so that makes my a happy camper :)

OMGsrsly

Yay! Also, cold steeped in apple juice? That sounds weird I must try it. :)

Sil

i think you meant to put this comment in my elderberry note…i can’t imagine steeping afer dark in apple juice lol

Sil

i see what steepster/me did there… lol thanks to anlina!

OMGsrsly

Lol. You had TWO after dark notes! So I commented on the one in front of my face. :)

I need to drink more herbals at night… so i pulled this one out at dinner. I have a tin full left and i’d like to actually work on getting through it over the winter. It’s like a bit of summer in my cup :)

Final Count: 103

This was evening tea while we finished up season 3 of game of thrones. I like this tea in winter..it’s warm and comforting and makes me happy smelling it.

TeaBrat

My BF and I are also watching Season 3 of Game of Thrones. We are getting addicted!

DeliriumsFrogs

I feel like this would be perfect with Game of Thrones (cue the soundtrack! lol)

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.
