I’ve had this one a few times now without writing a note. I picked this as my morning tea since i have a bit of time this morning before work gets a little crazy. I also desperately need to get through more of my puerh since my cupboard is back over 100. sigh I’m a fan of this one…if i had any sort of set up for storing puerh, i’d likely pick up a cake/box of this one. It’s very smooth and has creamy mushroom and brown sugar notes in it. I’ve only done a couple steepings but there’s no fermentation flavours here to throw things off and it’s just an overall good time. yum.

Interesting.

I wish I could work from home today so I could drink all the teas. Sadly, I can’t do the science from home.

Sil

i’m trying to get through as many things that i haven’t tried today heh

Monday’s a holiday which I was really excited about (time to stay home and sew and drink tea!) but I’ll have to work as all my experiments have a 5-day spread. Thursday, Friday and Monday, or Monday, Tuesday and Friday.

i can’t get excited about this tea. It’s not “bad” persay, but i don’t love it and there’s something in the taste that makes me not ever want to pick it. I tried it gonfu today to see if that made it a better option for me and while it smoothed some of the taste out, it’s still not what i want.

Open to adding this to swaps or sending it on to someone who will love it.

I’d be curious to try this?

Sil

OMG how did I not know there was a Black Orchid tea? It’s only the name of one of the weirdest Doctor Who stories to come out of the 80s. I may well need to get some just based on that…

Sil

it’s a different sort of vanilla imo. still a vanilla tea but not like the other 10000 of vanilla blacks that i’ve had

Sami Kelsh

It sounds groovy. Just give me ALL THE VANILLA THINGS IN EVERY POSSIBLE VARIATION THEREUPON :p

Kittenna

Sounds delicious. Is this one you picked up when you were in Europe?

Ost

Mmmm! Sounds so good

Sil

aye – pretty much everything these days is from my adventures. I wrapped up miss B’s teas the other day

Terri HarpLady

yay for your euro-adventure :)

Delicious. This one was a bit of a gamble. Some rooibos i like, others are that woody sort that just don’t do it for me. Not sure if i got apple caramel out of this one but i DID get delicious caramel yum. Curious about how this one would taste as a latte.

drank Tisane de L'abbaye by THE O DOR

Need to see if i can find the ingredient list again for this one…long story short when i had this a couple days ago, it reminded me something fierce of another tea. I just can’t figure out what tea it is. Also, the flavouring was a little calm/wimpy for me, so we’ll see more when i can actually drink this and not wait a few days to review. sigh

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.
