drank Berry Matcha by Red Leaf Tea

Very nearly a sip down – only one more smoothie left I think. Which is a good thing because I’ve been staring at the matcha all weekend wiling it to jump into my shopping cart lol. However I don’t Really have the funds and expect that there will be deals on Friday I won’t want to pass up.

Once again a delicious offering from red leaf, though not my favourite by any means.

agh Friday sales, they’re gonna be the end of my wallet! lol

I’ve basically been putting money aside for the past month or so, so that I can splurge on a new companies offerings if I feel so inclined.

drank China Keemun by Zen Tea

This is a decent keemun. While it’s not my favourite of those that I’ve tried I do like the way that this one tastes. There’s a heartiness to it that is really nice. I don’t get the plum but it is a nice mellow tea. It will be a good morning tea to have :)

Thank you Zen Tea for your samples! I’m glad I got to try this one!

drank Random Steepings by Various Artists

My boss had to go to China for business and brought back a lovely ceramic jar full of tea. Sadly we have no idea what it is. It’s similar to Laoshan Black, in that it has a malty chocolatey taste. There’s another taste there as well though, that I can’t put my finger on. I wish i knew what this was but it’s tasty. And since almost no one at work drinks tea like i do, it may end up in my home :)

you have an awesome boss!!

Helena

very nice!! :D

LiberTEAS

If it’s from China, it’s likely it’s a Fujian Black, which is a tea that has a malty, chocolatey taste like you describe, as I suspect that the Laoshan teas are a little more difficult to acquire than are Fujian Blacks.

And yes, you do have an awesome boss!

Sil

mmm thanks LiberTeas. There’s a seal on the jar with writing so I suspect if i posted a picture someone might be able to help me identify. It’s tasty though! that’s the important thing :)

drank Strawberry Cream by Zen Tea
4889 tasting notes

Inspired by Azzrian’s post a few days ago, I’m trying to get to the last two samples of I have from Zen Tea. While it’s not my fault that they didn’t get here for 2 months, I still feel bad that I haven’t yet had a chance to finish off the reviews.

As soon as the water hit the tea I can smell the creaminess. Mmm this is really good. It’s smiliar to 52 teas strawberry zabaglione but different too. It’s more creamy than strawberry but delicious nonetheless. I’ll have to try this again sometime with a bit of milk :)

drank Good Morning Sunshine by Butiki Teas
4889 tasting notes

Starting off the morning’s hot teas with this one. While I managed to get some much needed sleep last night, I’m still not doing too hot this morning. I figured this might be a good way to kick off the “morning” and help get me to a point where I can get some things done today. I have errands to run and actual work things to take care of that really needs to happen this weekend. I’m just hoping i can manage to get going. If not, at least i have tea to keep me company today :)

Kittenna

Wish I had some of this to start my day off with! Waiting on either Black Friday sales or new teas to come out to make another Butiki purchase.

Indigobloom

If anything can do it, I believe this cuppa can!

The Purrfect Cup

I had that this morning too!! :)

Sil

YAY!

Helena

Even the smell wakes me up :D

Sip down….well more like a goodbye. Not sure how I drank as much of this as I did, but this was part of my pre holy crap my cupboard is exploding with tea times! Tried to cold brew this and see how it would turn out….yeah. Not that great. Thanks for the good times when I didn’t know better topsy turvy blend :)

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.
