5357 Tasting Notes

I bought these tins a while back and for whatever reason haven’t brought myself to have tea from them since. I really enjoy A& D teas. There’s something to be said for 4oz of unassuming delicious straight black tea.

A & D is good stuff

Sil I think you’d love Oktoberfest.

drank Cold Zing (organic) by DAVIDsTEA

mmm this is an interesting one. Nothing i need to restoack (Sorry David’s) but it will be fine to drink until i’m done my little sample. The mint in this one is refreshing, and the citrusy notes that go along with it are quite nice. A little honey added to this really brought the flavours together a little better. Nice for a cooler afternoon.

drank Ginger Pear (organic) by DAVIDsTEA

I’m not sure how i feel about this one. I really like the ginger and the pear flavour…but there’s a sweetness or something underlying the flavours that isn’t sitting well with me. I’m going to take a pause on this one and try it again once i’m 100% better and see if that helps in case it’s just because i’m not feeling well.

Feel better

I had a ginger pear kombucha once, and the flavors worked really well together in that context.

i think i prefer the other variation on this theme from this morning. this one is less…just “less” the cup isn’t as strong and to me it’s lacking in the flavour that the other cup was. It’s still a nice cup, and i’m glad terri shared it with me but overall, i’d reach for the other YS tea before this one :)

Since Stacy is going to be leaving the tea scene, i thought it might be nice to pull out the last little bit of this. I have enough for maybe another cup after this one and I’ll be enjoying it as i celebrate having been fortunate enough to begin my tea journey when Butiki was still around. Thanks for so many awesome teas Stacy!

Butiki Teas

terriharplady my dearest tea sisiter, let me have a bit of this when i was at her house exploring her teas haha. I have to say that this is a really delicious tea from YS. It actually hit the spot a little better than LB this morning, but don’t tell LB that! I brewed this one western for ease and was left with a really delicious, slightly sweet but malty cup of tea. i didn’t get much astringency in the cup, which was nice. I’ll have to try the other teal of this variety that i picked up from terri as well and see how it compares.

drank Pumpkin Cheesecake by DAVIDsTEA
5357 tasting notes

i tried this as a sample while at David’s today. I don’t recall much about it, besides finding it rather tasty. I picked up some more to play around with at home, since i think this might do well as a latte given the flavouring. over all though, the only “pumpkin” tea from david’s that appealed to me after smelling them all.

Tea Count: 138 (was supposed to try and get to 90 by the end of september…way to go terri! and nicole…i’m putting that all on your two! lol)

Terri HarpLady

Oh well, lol, I’m back up to 380 or so, & although it’s mostly my fault, you & Nicole helped :). You’ll be proud of me to know that I haven’t ordered any tea since our visit, even though I have money sitting in my playpal account whispering, “spend meeeee”. Also, I’m starting to line up teas for another addition of *Little Terri’s Ultimate Sipdown Extravaganza!" :)

Sil

i’ve been bad… i ordered the 1 tea sample for us from misty peaks… and then whispering pines things… and now i’m staring at stacy’s teas to try all the new ones before black friday…

Terri HarpLady

Yeah….I was just loitering on Stacy’s page…sigh…

Sil

i picked up a couple… and i’ve got enough tea desires to place another order later when she releases a few more teas

I had this tonight as well – though i was worried it might actually make me sleepy as that seems to be it’s selling feature. Of course, it didn’t. That being said though, this was a tasty cup and nice to have as a herbal option for me today to help fight the sick!

caile

Hope you feel better soon!

Sil

boychik

Terri HarpLady

Sil

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.
