drank Banana Tie Guan Yin by 52teas

Initial thoughts on this tea? MOAR BANANA… albeit once it starts to cool off, the banana does make a bit more of a mark in this one. my initial take was that it was too green oolongy for me, but as the tea cools, that OOLONG taste rolls away and blends more with the banana. i like that this isn’t fake banana – it’s ripe, tasty banana. noms.

drank Boo-Berry Cotton Candy by 52teas

reviewing the New version of this blend. I think i like this one a little better than the original. It’s blueberry with that cotton candy feel to it. Not overly sweet, but also not just a blueberry tea. bumping the rating up a little for this version :)

I had this one yesterday and I think i nede to have it again before finalising my thoughts on this one. truth be told i was expecting the strawberry to be a little more present. The coconut in this is lovely, and i’m not a huge coconut fan. not sure i really got the whole sponge cake vibe but like i said, need to try this one again :)

drank Low Country by August Uncommon Tea
7165 tasting notes

last of the new teas that i tried this weekend…i think. this one has smokey notes to it but in the way that really works with the tea. It’s not in your face smoke,rather it’s like the smoke you sometimes get in bourbon. Over all, after tasting a few of these newer august uncommon teas, i understand their descriptions a bit better in terms of what the tea might taste like. Really having fun with these.

Final Count: 123 (down to 55 in a month is totally doable..riiight? fml)

Totally doable if you have iron kidneys, and an iron bladder.

drank Passage du Desir by August Uncommon Tea

sweet mother loving crap this one was delicious. Those of you who have been around a while, know that i adore mousse au chocolat from mf. this is as brilliant as that tea, while being a very different tea. black tea base? check. chestnut? check. rich chocolate? check. seriously. I wish i’d picked up a tin of this one.

Nicole

Sounds good!

OMGsrsly

Uh oh. I might be becoming very very tempted.

Sil

Poke me before you do omg. I may be ordering a tin of this one but I want to try a few more of the teas I picked up first. Free shipping to Sharon over 50$

OMGsrsly

I think I need to commit to more of the teas I currently have though. :/ They stress me out. But they’ve been narrowed down to the very delicious. Mostly.

Another tea from this weekend – all i can recall is holy THYME! I need to have another cup of this before sending the rest to omgsrsly but this one is my least favourite so far as it’s more thyme, then juniper then black tea base. the balance seems off a little in this one.

OMGsrsly

Aww, that’s a little disappointing. But I do love Fauchon’s Peche et Thym. So.

Roswell Strange

Finally placed my August Uncommon order; and your tasting notes are getting me excited!

Sil

Oh yay! Looking forward to seeing what you think

drank Caramel Pumpkin Cheesecake by 52teas
7165 tasting notes

i keep feeling like all the entries for the NEW 52 teas should be under something like that. I guess my thought is, that it’s hard to weed out the ratings for the old stuff versus the new stuff. Luckily though, this is still pretty tasty to me. It’s for sure more caramel black than pumpking cheesecake…but it was still an enjoyable cup. that being said, this was another tea from the weekend so better to wait for another review 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.
