thanks for sharing this one with me dexter this one isn’t too shabby but like most genmaicha’s…it tastes like genmaicha to me. neither better, nor worse than any that i’ve had. So a cup i enjoyed drinking but nothing ZOMG MUST have, since i don’t have a lot of room for genmaicha in my cupboard…ok so i room for two. nina’s and verdant’s black one haha

This is an awesome tea! My fingers are twitching to place an order for this.

Nicole

The list of wants from Mandala keeps growing. As soon as everything I want is in stock, my bank account is in trouble.

Awesome glad you liked it. :))

Whenever I break open the crate of this tea to bag up for an order, I get excited. The smell of the dry leaf recreates in my mind all of the best things about my wood shop class in 8th grade. The sweet aroma that certain woods gave out when cut or planed makes me so very happy and this tea has the very best of those aromas in the dry leaf. I’m really happy that are enjoying it.

Garret

Hey Nicole! What have you been waiting for as far as out-of-stocks at our shop? Maybe I can help you with some ETA’s.

Sil

yum!

Nicole

Garret, I was trying to remember – maybe it was the Morning Sun or the Flowering Black Tea Cones? I tried getting to the site to check my wishlist and I can’t get it to come up today.

Nicole

Apparently I just hadn’t checked recently enough. Everything was in stock. And the bank account sighs… :)

Garret

Nicole! New teas are on the way to you, my friend. Wish I could deliver them myself and then sit down for a nice tea session :) Enjoy each of them. Thank you!

drank Traditional Yunnan by RiverTea

mmmm tasty morning black tea! This one was sent my way via dexter and it was a tasty one! I am loving the malty, deliciousness of this one today. I had this a few hours ago and i’m so exhausted from last night’s lack of sleep, that really all i can say is “mmmmm goood….”

drank Lemon Spice by Acquired Taste Tea Co.
4026 tasting notes

I tried this one as a cold brew as well, and while i like it a bit more than this hot brewed, i think this is just not the tea for me. Conceptually i really like it, but in execution there’s something slightly off about this one. However, appreciate the share MissB because i love trying all the teas!

Preparation
Iced 8 min or more

drank Lemon & Ginger by Clipper
4026 tasting notes

i tried this cold brew since MissB was kind enough to send me a enough for a couple silsized cups. Cold brew this is even tastier EXCEPT for that sweetness…which i wish i could place and that comes across as really artificial. I figured if it’s not sweetner then it’s some form of the lemon. I think this is pretty tasty though.

Preparation
Iced 8 min or more

drank Toasty Warm by T2
4026 tasting notes

thank you missB! this is another delight that was sent my way. This is a tasty sugar, nougatty tea. I think i’d prefer this as a black base tea but on the whole it’s a delicious tasting tea that was really nice with dinner + fringe.

Oh man..also…i had the best lemon bluberry cake today with our lunch out…i’m still dreaming about it..lemon custard thingy on top…blueberry layers…fluffy white cake..meringue on the top sorta…soooooo good.

Final Count: 156 (at least 6 teas in tomorrow’s sipdown!)

drank Purple Sunset Oolong by Butiki Teas
4026 tasting notes

sipdown! but this will be back in my cupboard in future…oh yes. Not as much tea drinking today as i am pooped from the walking we did today. I was breaking in new shoes as well in prep for our treking about vancouver so i’m ready for bed. this might be one of my favourite oolongs….which is saying a lot since oolongs are oo-wrong!

drank Nina's Japon by Nina's Paris
4026 tasting notes

this was my out and about tea today. Seriously, best weekend in a long time. My other half was off so we slept in, had breakfast together and then went for a 5 hours walk. Just out enjoying the sun, the day, spending time together being “out.” I got to buy some pants for walking/being active AND we may have found a writing desk that we can use in the house so that i’m not at the dining room table when i work from home with cords all over the place. We went out for lunch, stopped at the liquor station and had a grand ol’ day. And this was my tea for doing it with. :)

Dexter3657

Awesome tea for an awesome day!!! :))

Cavocorax

Yay! That sounds really awesome!

another tea from dexter that i had waaaay earlier in the day. It was quite tasty, though i remember wishing the nutty taste was just a little stronger. Overall though, another nice tea from bluebird!

drank Lemon Spice by Acquired Taste Tea Co.
4026 tasting notes

this is one of the teas that missB sent my way. It smells quite lovely with the lemon and the addded spice. Drinking it up though, was a different sort of experience. There wasn’t as much lemon as i figured there might be and the spice left a weird taste in my mouth. I’m cold brewing the rest of my sample to see if that makes a difference in the taste:)

Bio

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.
