drank Lime Marshmallow by Butiki Teas
6481 tasting notes

mmmm so one of the best parts about working from home occasionally is that it lets me get out some of the teas that either require more time and focus from me (puerhs, i’m looking at you!) or teas that don’t taste nearly as delicious in a travel mug. This is one of those teas. I LOVE this tea…lime, marshmallow goodness but travel mug just makes it less amazing. I’ll be sad when this one is all gone.

That is exactly how I feel about my new job – I get to actually have teas not in travel mugs! It’s great. I should bring along my Lime Marshmallow tomorrow if I remember, because now I’m craving it, haha.

Sil

new job? did you tell us about that? what are you doing?

Kittenna

I probably alluded to it but didn’t say much (or if I did, it’s in a tasting note I didn’t post yet). I basically got a promotion to be a quality assurance tester at my call centre job. More flexible hours, slightly higher pay, and I have my own desk/can make tea when I want. It’s pretty great, and the job is certainly more enjoyable.

Sil

oh nice!

drank Mon Premier Thé by Fauchon
6481 tasting notes

So…while i was in Paris, this was one of the teas that i contemplated picking up from the Fauchon store because you could get it outside of a tin purchase. For some reason, i opted not to (i’m guessing it was the other 3.5kg that i’d already bought). So when i returned home and saw that MissB had thoughtfully included some of this in her last package i was SUPER excited. So much so that it was picked to be brewed this morning, even though it’s decaf and i could have had it in the evening. I was just super excited to try it and see if this was a regret.

It is. haha. I won’t cry over not picking more up, but I wish that i had. This is a really nice cocoa/raspberry/caramel tea..and it’s decaf! The bear shaped sprinkles in here don’t even annoy me like most sprinkles do.

Marzipan

Sprinkles!

Sil

they’re more like uh candy bears or something..but they’re fun

Fjellrev

I didn’t think Fauchon would be into doing something like that (sprinkles).

VariaTEA

If I come across fauchon in my travels, I can grab some more for you!

Stephanie

Cocoa raspberry caramel sounds amazing! YAY Fauchon!

Sil

VariaTEA – you guys will have your hands full. It’s enough to know that i’ll enjoy it in future. I have lots of new teas to try thanks to MissB and my purchases. heh

cteresa

3.5 kg of tea? You win ;)

(my suitcase, the last time I was in paris, ah, it smelled fantastic!)

Sil

cteresa- haha i hope you had a great time with ysaurella. I’m really sorry i wasn’t able to join you on the saturday :(

cteresa

It was very nice indeed, I got my first Lupicia teas. I did not make it to Theodor though because of subway malfunction, maybe next time. I confess to one thing, the fact Lupicia sells by the 50 grams and that Ysaurella showed me a shop which sold MF by the 50 grams did contribute to me staying at a lower tea weight! Plus you know, sadly, no Theodor :( Next time…

Sil

lupicia? awe man…i totally missed that :(

MissB

Aha…. see, great minds think alike. Another of their teas has butterfly sprinkles in it, which I’m pretty sure I sent you the entire 50g of that because it’s oolong.

Sil

yes…oolong caramel du buerre sale…

drank Downy Tips Black Tea by Mandala Tea

I’ve had this before but don’t see my review. I opted for a long western brew of this today as i want to save my gonfu patience for later today with some puerhs since those are my closest sipdowns and i have a number of new puerhs to try as well as share with friends.

This is not my favourite from mandala but it’s a delicious one.Smooth, sweet, caramel and molasses. Not too heavy but not a light tea either. Great for a work from home tea day!

sipdown! that’s going to be such an infrequent things for me for the next little while so i may get back in to tracking them more :) I had the last of this early in the morning to kick off my day since i knew i only had a single cup’s worth left :) I am still a fan of yezi teas. they have great customer experience and their teas are pretty delicious. :) Will have to restock again once i get through the remainder of their teas in my cupboard.

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.
