drank Pear Matcha by Red Leaf Tea

So I think I have this figured out. The pear flavouring is too strong for me. I ordered the robust flavouring since that’s worked out well for me with cheesecake and caramel, but I think in the pear it’s too intense. I made a pear smoothie this morning and it was waaaaaay intense. I had to back it off with twice the amount of milk that I usually use and it was then that I got the hint of how amazing this would be with the delicate flavouring. I think this is also because pears in general don’t have a super intense smack you in the face taste. They’re delicious and wonderful but also subtle. Now, all that being said, I’m super happy that I think I’ve figured it out so my next reorder of pear will try the delicate flavouring. :) overall still love this matcha, just not quite as much as the cheesecake and caramel.

This might be my favorite Della terra tea at the moment…. Really nice fall tea for those colder evenings. Enjoying this one tonight while I relax. Rally exhausted from the gym today, think I may be fighting getting sick.

Helena

If your sick Sil I don’t want it :D you know what’s good for colds? GOOD MORNING SUNSHINE!! well it could be…

Sil

Lol Helena….wish I had some but I’ve been waiting for my order to get here forever…I’m actually going to be a bit concerned if I don’t get it Monday since its been like 11 business days :( wanted to try those teas before placing another larger order for things including YOUR tea :)

Helena

yeah it usually takes 10+ days to get to Canada so I order in advance and large quantity of the good stuff (a.k.a. Good Morning Sunshine) last time I got 4oz and I think 4oz of Almond Indulgence :D

Sil

Yeah…it’s never taken the full 10 to get here for anything for me. One of the benefits to living in a major city in Canada. Heh

Helena

Winnipeg is a province capital and it still takes forever :D however I’m more than willing to wait since it’s sooo tasty :D

Sil

Helena… Just cause “winterpeg” is a capital doesn’t make it a major city grin

Home from working out and then going to idea and Canadian tire to look for various things as well as find possible ideas for storing tea in our little apartment. Exhausted from all that so I decided to treat myself with a pear latte, thought tossed in a dash of caramel matcha as well. I love how easily I can make a warm tasty beverage that’s has a little more to it than tea. Pear plus the creamy goodness of milk. Mmmmmm

It’s been a pretty Long week for me and my other half. We’re supposed to be getting up and going to the gym but it’s raining outside and he’s still asleep. I don’t get much weekend time with him but because it’s been such a crazy week for us, I decided to let him sleep in, brew myself a cup of tea and take some quiet time to read a book and decide on my tea purchases for this weekend :) listening to the rain and the cars rushing by outside, makes me appreciate the warmth and deliciousness of this tea. Warm malty tones that glide down my throat soothing my throat and making me smile. These are the moments to relish….the here and now because you never know what the next moments will bring. Mmmmm

drank Cheesecake Matcha by Red Leaf Tea

Today’s morning is brought to you by banana, raspberry cheesecake with a spash of caramel! The focus here was cheesecake matcha but I love adding frozen fruit to my smoothies in the morning. Servings of fruit and milk to kick off the morning with yummy cheesecake goodness! I’m getting SUPER excited for my vacation after seeing pictures of the characters on the cruise – this might be the first time i actually get pictures with characters….i’m such a big kid. :)

I don’t wanna grow up… I’m a toys-r-us kid… :D

Sil

Indigobloom

drank Masala Chai by Bridgehead

I’m all out of my favorite chai teas so this is my back up. That being said, it’s still a good tea, just not my favourite. I’m almost out of this one as well, so that not only makes me sad, but happy because it means i’m working my way through all of the teas that I went crazy buying when i first got into steepster :)

Bio

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.
