Boychik sent me a sample of this one, and i figured today would be a good day to try it out. Since i’m losing yet another weekend to testing the release, our boss told us to try and take the day off – we all laughed because who can actually do that. However, we are all working from home today in an effort to at least have an easier day. I am for sure doing my best to get lots done but also take time to focus on my tea. I haven’t really taken notes on this one, but i have been enjoying the developing flavour of this one. I wasn’t impressed with the first couple of steepings, even after a quick rinse. however, as this has gone on, i’ve started to enjoy the smoothness of this one. I like that there’s a bit of fruitiness to this, though it’s softened by the woody notes here as well.

Thanks for sharing boychik! someday i’ll be better at this whole reviewing puerh sort off thing :)

Cavocorax sent this one my way since i don’t typically pick up David’s Teas. I don’t adore mint teas, but i don’t hate them. This one is made interesting by the addition of fennel and pepper. I’ve had this a couple times now, without a tasting note and since this is my last cup, i figure I’d better land somewhere on this. If i was in the mood for a mint tea with a twist, this would be a good go to tea. Thanks cavo!

sipdown! the never ending tea bag is finally finished lol This brings me down to 4 teas that are outside of my 6 month range, so not too shabby at all. I’ve really enjoyed this one as a smokey tea, though after getting through the amount that i’ve had – i wonder if ive gotten to the point of just being done with it. the last few cups were more of a struggle to get through. however, that being said, it could also be the result of having a number of smokey teas that i want to finish. I tend not to always want to be drinking a smoke sort of tea. :) Either way, i have enjoyed this one a lot!

drank Cherry-Banana Flip by TeaGschwendner
5241 tasting notes

I had this one last night, and while i was a tasty cup of tea, it was very much a cherry cup of tea. There doesn’t seem to be much banana in the bag, though i’m not sure if that’s intentional, OR if i just got a bag full of no banana. Either way i’m ok with it only because the cherry tea is nice. :) I’ll drop a few points off the rating though, for being a cup of cherry goodness versus banana and cherry.

Final Count for the past two days: 119

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.
