Tried this cold brew to see if it helped redeem it in my eyes. It did not. So farewell madam butterfly. You were delicious and wonderful until my eyes and lips were opened up to more interesting and exciting possiblities in tea land :)

drank Blood Orange by Zen Tea
4840 tasting notes

So I have to say, this is a tea for cold brewing. It still doesn’t have the intense flavour that i’d prefer but in cold brewing this a lot more of the blood orange flavour came out. It’s also got a beautiful orange colour to it that makes me smile. I’ll be using the last of my sample to do another cold brew of this sometime for sure! Adding a touch of sweetner also helped. heh

WHEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!! Man it’s that kind of day. But it’s friday and it’s a long weekend. Only a little bit of testing to do on the weekend so we’re rocking this joint! Really enjoying being able to have the occasional tea in the afternoon. Shared this one with a friend from work and they really enjoyed it. YAY for tea sharing!

Long weekend? Argh! I don’t get it AT ALL; most of Canada has Remembrance Day as a holiday, except stupid Ontario, yet half the people in Ontario get it off due to working for the government, or national companies, or whatever.

Granted, grad students never get long weekends. Or weekends. Or vacations. Or coffee breaks. mumble

Sil

Need to work for a financial institution. :) I love this holiday for not being a thing in Ontario. It gives me a day off work where I can actually do errands and stuff lol

Uniquity

If it makes you feel better, the internet says that Ontario has 9 stat holidays per year. I live in NS – we only have five! It’s a source of endless moaning for me.

Kittenna

WHAT!? That is madness. You deserve to moan!

Babble

Do you celebrate Veterans day too? What holiday do you celebrate on Mon?

DaisyChubb

Our day is Rememberance day Rach, on the same day as Veterans. :)

I got my 2 in the mail the other day :D I drink it at school since it can take boiling water :D

Nik

I am all for sharing, but…I’m not sure I would share this blend. (Mine, all MINE.) =P

Sil

Helena

Almost done drinking this one down, not so much because i’m in a mad rush to do so but because I have so many other delicious teas coming from Stacy. I really like the richness of this tea.

Dropping teh rating on this one a bit. While its still a lovely tea, I think there are more out there that are now to my liking. Tis was one of the first flavoured teas I tried :) still a nice blend of caramel, green….a sweet dessert tea.

drank Organic Genmaicha by Den's Tea
4840 tasting notes

This is my second? Genmaicha ever, so take that for what it’s worth. :) I think i prefer the one from verdant that i tried but this is still pretty decent. There’s a lot more green earthy taste to this than i expected, though having little experience with this, i wasn’t sure what to expect. At the initial sip it seems almost like it’s going to turn into a chicken soup broth, until more of the liquid lands in my mouth. That’s a little wierd though because it tastes NOTHING like chicken soup. I have a few other’s from Den’s Tea that i need to try out this weekend, but this isn’t a bad little tea.

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.
