Another morning tea and either i’m just not feeling it today or this is a very different version than the one terri sent me forever ago. I’m finding today that it’s just not to my liking, though given that i LOVED this enough to order some for myself, i’m going to give this another shot when i’m feeling more crazy happy tea personface :)

I’ve concluded that my taste buds are way off today :p

morning tea from ages ago. We got up early this morning to have breakfast and get the bedroom painted. Last night was a full evening of rearranging the living room and dining room in an effort to take back the house after out HUGE ikea trip on thrs night. Still enjoying this one a bunch, though it’s painful that i’m not going to make my goal for sipdowns by July lol

This is from the Grab bag in the BBBB, right? I have some of this, which I brought with me to Tony’s. I’ll probably drink it tomorrow, so I hope you aren’t planning to send the rest of yours to moia… ;)

Sil

cavocorax gave me this one and i’ve been saving it because it sounded terribly delicious to me. that being said, once i brewed it up, the citrus is a little too over powering. I am relaly loving the caramel smell and taste, but struggling to find the harmonious balance with the citrus in this tea. That being said, maybe that’s why it’s a good hannibal tea since that show is messed up lol. Still enjoying it, though i wish things were a little more gounded and balanced :)

Cavocorax

Awww. Too bad it didn’t work for you. It was an odd one.

Another tea from VariaTEA which gets me to 210…soo many teas still to drink to get to 200, let alone 100. I have to say, with this tea, the jury is still out. initial sips provide a flavourless sort of tea until the tail end of the sip where the butterscotch is hiding out. but when you hit that butterscotch, it’s delicious! Soooo while i am a fan of the flavour, i’m not a fan of that initial taste you need to get through to get to the good times :) still though, i can appreciate why ppl like this one, so thanks variatea!

Cavocorax

Maybe 100 should be your goal for Black Friday? :P

Cavocorax

(before you restock on EVERYTHING!)

Sil

Terri HarpLady

had the last cup of this one today in an effort to make a little progress on my cupboard today since RiverTeas will be rescued from mail jail this afternoon. While i enjoyed this tea a bunch, i’m still just not a fan of adagio on the whole enough to be buying a lot of their teas.

Cavocorax

I hope to come rescue all my teas from you soon! I might have time off work next week or the week after so it’ll be easier to visit!

Sil

looks like not all the Riverteas showed up sigh

ugh..i’m almost out of this tea, which is a good thing and a bad…because even if i ordered this today, it wouldn’t be here for a couple weeks…and it’s not like i need mroe tea. but it IS a december tea and that’s part of my 6 month goal that i likely won’t make but i’ll keep working on :) enjoying this today as i’m having a bit of an apathetic day. i think i’m still sick so its making me tired and complacent. heh

Terri HarpLady

damn, I forgot to bring that tea with me to Tony’s…

drank Walnut Truffle by Tea Desire

this one came my way via Roswell Strange I have to say that while i have apparently tried this before, today it was a better cup than i’d say the last time i had it. Might have something to do with the GIANT WALNUTS in my cup :) it was nice to have this one again, though still nothing i need to stock.

backlog – i didn’t realise i’d already had this team – some came my way via the BBB box grab bag ;) it’s nice to revisit this since it’s been a while since i last had it. However, my perceptions are still the same. Not a bad tea, not a great tea…just average…

Final Count yesterday: 213 (not too shabby since i lost 6? hours to Ikea..18 teas)

Terri HarpLady

I brought all of my ‘grab bag’ teas with me this weekend, so hopefully I’ll get around to trying them all.

i feel like i had a different tea than everyone else lol This one came my way from boychik and i had it yesterday (finishing my catch up). To me? this was barely smokey…instead what i was getting was a deliciously smooth tea with just a hint of something that might be smokey. Even after a couple resteeps it was just a pleasant cup of tea lol

Joseph Wesley Black Tea

That sounds like the correct tea. Our #7 Lapsang Souchung is a much higher grade Lapsang Souchung than any we’ve seen in the North American market. The art of its constructio and what makes us so excited about it is that it has a perfect balance between the natural sweetness of the leaves (picked from wild tea trees) and the gentle smokey notes from the final heating with wood – not wet needles. It’s definetly not a heavy handed tea. Happy to read that you enjoyed it.

Sil

i loved it :)

boychik

im happy you loved it.

Angrboda

Yes, I agree! I found it very mild as well.

Sil

Yay I’m not the only one hahaha

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.
