-yuchi wild mountain black lot 336
-ming hong
-caramel de buerre sale
-zhen shan xiao spring 2013
-douceur chocolate
-gifting ripe puer

to name a few… back in a more regular capacity once i’ve been release from capitvity!

Sil

drank La Verveine (Lemon Verbena) by Fauchon

This was another from MissB that i had last night. It was fairly decent, though i’ve had other Lemon Verbena teas that i prefer. I can see this one being pretty decent in summer, cold brewed. Sadly i think fauchon only sells these in bag form. Thanks MissB!

Thanks for the share MissB I’ve had this one before but wanted to revisit it and see how i’m feeling about it after a year or so. I don’t like this as much as when i first had it but it’s a relatively decent cup of tea. there are others i vastly prefer from MF though :)

Final Count: 95 (8 inbound + a couple swap though…)

Finished up the last of this over the course of the afternoon. This will likely be a restock eventually :) Although, maybe not given that i adore wild monk and this one is a slight step down :) Still though. i’ve really enjoyed this one. slightly smokey and just a great time through each infusion

Another from MissB This one smelled like it’s name but the taste wasn’t one that i cared for until it was almost completely cooled. Warm it fell flat, but cooled it was a really subtle blueberry coconut tea. Smooth and quite refreshing. No need to keep this in my cupboard but warm brewed then cooled is the way to go with then one imo. Not sure if a straight cole brew would work, but someone should try haha

Oh this sounds yummy! Coconut comes across as “baked goods” to me so I’m totally picturing this tasting like blueberry cake. Yum!

Another from MissB that i had today. This is a really nice peach, blackcurrant tea. I’ve been sick of “peach” teas for the last while but the addition of the blackcurrant to this one makes is a really pleasant cup that isn’t just PEACH. This was my favourite of the two lov organic’s i had today from missb :) Thanks as always!

MissB sent this one out way and since i had the oolong one today, i figured i might as well also have the black version from another company heh. In a black base, this one smells very much like the other versions that i’ve had with oolong bases. However, once brewed, this one falls short for me. It’s definitely salted caramel…but the oolong does a better job of contributing to that buttery feeling than a black base in my opinion. This was an enjoyable cup but i am already craving more of the oolong haha

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.
