I’ve been mostly Mia for a couple days, as I’m in ottawa trying to find my wedding dress in 3 days of glorious backs to back dress craziness. Toda….we found it. The search is over! The only dress that I actually put on and smiled at, rather than my usual…well this is nice… I could wear this. So we did it. Best part of all of it? Super inexpensive dress because we found a sample size on sale, and even with alterations, it’ll be cheaper than every other dress that I looked at! One more thing off the wedding list…oh happy day. Celebrated tonight with a few cups of this delicious tea that is back in my cupboard thanks to the awesome generosity of omgsrsly me and this tea? We’re besties!

Congrats on finally finding The One! Hope you’ll be able to breathe a little more easily now.

Yay for dress!

OMGsrsly

Yay dress! And yay tea. :D I’ll totally keep sending you this when you complain you’ve run out. :)

drank Vanilla Black by Janet's Special Teas
5800 tasting notes

omgsrsly sent this one my way and i am a fan! this is quite a tasty vanilla black. the base is smooth, present without overpowering the tea and the vanilla doesn’t have that strange artificial taste that you sometimes get with vanilla blacks. YUM!

Bear With Me

Thanks for reminding me that I need to restock. I just finished mine off with a splash of chai-infused rum this morning!

Sil

This one is much tastier than some more expensive vanilla blacks that I’ve had

drank Japanese Lime by Janet's Special Teas

I can’t recall if this one was from bear with me or omgsrsly but i think it was BWM. This one wasn’t bad, but was a little light for me. It was a decent green tea, but the lime was sort of muted…i wanted it to be more like a lime slushy or something in my head….likely my fault, not the tea haha!!

Bear With Me

I find the same problem. I like it better cold steeped actually. But i like it better than DAVIDs lime gelato.

Sil

Haha see I really like lime gelato.. :)

Bear With Me

I dislike that lime gelato has yogurt in it. I prefer non-creamy lime drinks. Unless it’ssupposed to be key lime pie. Mmmm, key lime pie…

drank White Pink Grapefruit by Tea Centre

even though there are flowers in this one, it’s really a nice lovely, gentle white tea. I rather enjoyed this one from omgsrsly it could be a bit stronger in flavour, but i think that would have changed it too much :)

sorry omgsrsly not a fan of this one. It was like a clovey earl grey or something. The cardamom was hiding and it really did remind me of some sort of weird clovey blergamot concoction lol

drank Victoria 150 by Silk Road

Bear with me sent this one my way and i’m pretty sure his words were “you won’t like it” haha Funnily enough, i actually liked this one more than the cardamon black hat i also had. Not enough to hold on to it and be a greedy guts, but i did enjoy my cup with breakfast this morning :) thanks Bear with me!

Bear With Me

I am actually shocked yu enjoyed it since it is a floral tea! Glad to hear it! I will send the new Victoria tea next time. I think it will be more your thing. :)

Sil

I won’t be craving this one but it was a good cup!

drank Gold Blend Tea Bags by Barry's Tea

Another one from MIssB this is for sure a milk tea! lol without it, it’s quite strong, but i’ve had it a couple times now with either milk or honey and lemon and its quite nice for a bagged, no fuss tea :)

MissB

This is what everyone, and I mean everyone, drinks in Ireland. Any store, restaurant, cafe.. this is your standard tea. Definitely needs milk! Glad you’re enjoying it. :)

Sil

aye the rest is off with the girls to steal from and share… :)

gmathis

This is on my list to try.

drank Royal BC Museum Tea by Silk Road

Apparently i’ve had this one before. This cup comes from omgsrsly and today i’m finding it a much lovelier cup than when i previously had it. The berries add just the right “something” to this blend taking it from a really nice black tea to a tasty fruit black blend. thanks madam! always nice to revisit teas!

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.
