SIPDOWN! (229) Happy to have made it under 30 before i leave for a week but it sucks that i really don’t have the effort/energy to put in to bringing tea with me and trying to find somewhere to make it. I don’t mind this one, but it’s not a re-order for me. I’m glad i had the chance to try it but that’s as far as i need to take it heh

drank Creme Caramel Rooibos by DAVIDsTEA
6170 tasting notes

SIPDOWN! (230) i guess i could drink some more black teas but i figure that this is a good time for me to try a few more of the rooibos teas i have. I’m not a fan of this one. It’s kind of artificial and not nearly as delicious as i want it to be.

more of this tonight to i’m logging it darnit! It’s tasty…though i’m sooo tired. i couldn’t nap so by the time i get to sleep, IF i can sleep on the plane, i’ll have been up for more than 24 hours! woot woot!

Stephanie

Ugh, that’s a long time to be up

Sil

Yeah…so annoyed that my body woke up this morning and didn’t sleep in

yyz

I can’t sleep on airplanes either, even on long flights. I think my record of no sleep is approaching 32 hours so it can be done. Just hope you get the chance to sleep once your at your destination!

drank Osmanthe D'Or by Dammann Freres
6170 tasting notes

thank you shmiracles! this was a tea i wasn’t expecting to like, as it’s a green oolong. So i’ve been putting it off until today. I had the tea earlier today that had osmanthe in it…so i figured today was a good enough day to try this.

Overall impression? Not too shabby. It’s not overly floral, which is a plus for me and it doesn’t have that weird oolong-y taste that i don’t like. But there’s also nothing here to really entice me to come back to it. I’ll drink the rest of my sample but nothing to be wowed over…but it IS another tea off my “ALL THE TEAS” list! :)

drank Strawberry Rhubarb Crumble by DAVIDsTEA
6170 tasting notes

mmm i like the one. Especially when i get distracted and drink it lukewarm and the strawberry POPS and has an aftertaste of brown sugar. yep. I’m glad kittenna convinced me to get 50g of this even if it was a discontinued tea. At least i found another david’s tea i enjoy and it’s been fun drinking it down :)

SIPDOWN! (232) Guess my next goal is trying to get to 200 by the end of July even with my inbound orders. eek! I finished off the last of this one by dumping it into a pitcher to cold brew today. Mostly i just wanted something cool to be able to drink tonight while i’m testing over night. Another release…another sleepless night. I find that it’s hard for me to get around to hot brewing teas with releases, so i have a few cold brew teas on the go.

Still enjoying this one quite a bit, so i may need to pick up more someday.

Go, Sil, go! And here I’m so proud of myself for clearing around five teas out of my cupboard over the past couple weeks haha.

Sil

hey 5 is good! i’ve been pretty slackadasical about my sipdowns this week…just too busy at work. But i have a full day/night of testing so i’ve been able to get to a few things today. But then i’m gone for a week…bah!

drank Caramel Pumpkin Cheesecake by 52teas
6170 tasting notes

i think i’m almost done with this tea, or it really is just a tea for winter with it’s spiciness. I had a cup of this one because kittena had made reference to French Toast possibly tasting like this one. It does smell like this tea, but the taste is less similar, though i understand why it would certainly remind someone of this tea. Overall, not a bad cup for this morning.

drank French Toast by 52teas
6170 tasting notes

Thank you Cavocorax for sending this my way! Since kittenna suggested this might tastes/smell like frank’s pumpkin caramel cheesecake tea, i figured i might as well do a side by side since i had some left. Opening this package was like opening a package of caramel pumpkin cheesecake, only slightly different… This comes across as less french toast than frank’s pancake breakfast is to actual pancakes…if that makes sense. there’s cinnamon in this one and it’s more like a cinnamon cheesecake sorta black tea. i think i prefer pancake breakfast as my go to morning breakfast tea if i were picking on.

There’s no astringency to this like there is the potential for with the pumpkin caramel cheesecake…and while this does remind me of that tea, this is a smoother, less spicey tea in comparison. of course without the side by side comparison, i’m sure i would have thought the same thing as kittenna. heh

While not a bad blend, thankfully nothing i must have in my cupboard always. I’ve got another cup or so of this that i may just try as a cold brew for fun :)

drank Tangerine Spice by Kally Tea

SIPDOWN! (233) I finished up the last of this one today and i’m not sad to see it go. It’s one of those teas that i enjoyed..but couldn’t really pin point the flavor and it never really called out for me to come drink it.

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.
