The story of the travelling tea sample….this one comes to me from Terri… who received it from stephanie who got it from boychik who apparently got it from tea explorer? good times with tea friends! I’m not sure this one is for me, but i’m not sure it’s not for me either. I’ll have to try a few more heicha before i decide where i feel about all of these. the first few steeps where sweet with a strange taste to them….later steeps were a little darker… that’s all i’ve got as this was a yesterday tea :)

This comes my way from Stephanie via Terri. I’ll admit at first i was a little hesitatnt about this but figured what the heck! I’m so glad that i tried this out. Seriously..this is like iced coffee without the caffeine or that coffee after taste. i am a fan. I can see these being great for the summer – no fuss, coffee grounds or anything. yay!

jury is still out on this one…though i think it’s leaning towards “no thanks” i tried this one gonfu today, to try and get a better handle on it. it didn’t work. the first steep was amazing in it’s uniqueness and then later steeps went weird on me. I have no idea how to classify what i’m tasting here beyond “weird” and “different” haha I only picked up a small amount of this, so we’ll see how terri fares with this one haha since she wanted to try more CS teas :)

wheeeeee early morning tea..i’m all out of wack with my notes today. Not much to say on this one beyond the fact that it’s still a solidly delicious cup for my mornings.

i had this on earlier today. I think it’s a little beyond me. No matter what i seemed to do with it, i just wasn’t feeling it. so the rest is off to terri or cavo…or someone haha.

wheeee! my other butiki tea from today. Have to get cracking on drinking up some of my teas…not because i want them gone but because now i’m on a mission! ESP if we go to Paris since i foresee some small tea purchases… lol. this one isn’t bad, though today it was really more pumpkin spice than anything.

OMGsrsly

Woo Paris!

aaah so behind with things today. I got distracted looking at a possible trip to paris in april to get me through to october… still enjoying this one but i won’t cry when it’s all gone as it wasn’t my all time fav heh good but not the best

Marzipan

I have been looking at the Teaodor site, for a possible order, but it gives next to info about the teas. So frustrating!

i seriously don’t want to write a tasting note for this one. Not until i have more in my hands. There are 2 strains? of tea that TTC carries that always seem to appeal to me out of their whole selection. the others i enjoy, but not enough to NEED them in my cupboard. Courtney was awesome enough to send me a sample of this one in our swap. i bought 50g of this last night after drinking it. I’ve had it several times, resteeping etc. it tastes like an apple pie….sweet, cinnamon, appley, baked good, delicious….incredible. even my other half was like omg wtf that is NOT a straight tea. i am blown away by this one. really. it’s a happy tea. I may need to order more once my order gets here before the lot is gone because even now i can still remember the incredibleness of the taste.

Ost

Mm that sounds really good :O

Sil

I can’t wait for it to get here lol then I can have it again, make sure I wasn’t imagining it’s deliciousness and then contemplate ordering more…

had this one last night while i was tea shopping and it was great. There’s just something about this one that works for me both hot and cold. I won’t cry when it’s gone, but it’s one i’d pick up again if it ever comes back.

this was my treat the other day. I don’t have a lot of this one left but i’m trying to time finishing my verdant teas around the same time so that i can place one large order instead of a bunch of small ones. the dollar went up a little so i converted some funds for a future purchase. i hope this years harvest of this one is delicious!

Cavocorax

Oh! I should try some of this! My pack has barely been opened bc I’ve been worrying about sipdowns but… I luffs this.

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.
