drank S'mores by Della Terra Teas

so this one’s not too bad. I’m pretty sure it’s the chocolate factor with Della Terra that throws me off. Still, not too shabby a tea if you’re looking for a good time ha! sorry..for something a little fun and different. Totally not an every day tea though. :)

So with my samples I may be able to figure out what sort of Della Terra Teas i’m less a fan of. In this case I’m beginning to think it’s the chocolate teas. This tea smells AMAAAAZING. It’s exactly like a chocolate orange chocolate. However, after brewing it and tasting it..it’s a chocolate tea…with a hint of orange spice at the end of it. I’ve got more of this sample left to try so we’ll see if i can figure out how to improve on the brewing paramters.

drank Eight Candles by Della Terra Teas

This is a fantastic caramel marshmallow tea! Now, marshmallow tea isn’t something I’d always want, but as a dessert tea this is pretty delicious. It’s also renewed my hope in Della Terra – in that they’ve modified their teas since I first tried them. The aroma of this tea is straight up marshmallow deliciousness. Drinking it…you get marshmallow goodness followed by the sweet caramel. Mmmmm this is pretty spiffy!

drank Zhen Qu by Butiki Teas

mmmm so good. Having a rough start this morning so I wanted something that was both tasty and delicious and strong enough to get my going. I pulled this out of my “not yet opened” pile so that I could enjoy it this morning. Still trying to figure out what i’m purchasing in terms of teas over the weekend and I can’t yet justify picking up another order from stacy with all the tea that I have from her that’s not yet opened…lol SO i’m opening more! hah

This is maltly, chocolaty almost sweet, bold goodness.

Bonnie

This is a really good tea!

Sil

i agree.. one of my favs :)

drank Coffee Matcha by Red Leaf Tea
4927 tasting notes

So the downside to the way i make smoothies is that I don’t really have any sort of accurate tracking on when i’m using my matcha since i have a tendency to make 1 dominant flavour but then i add bits and pieces of other flavours to enhance it. Today it was a coffee matcha smoothie…but i added a bit of french vanilla and some chocolate. i’m pretty exhausted today so i was hoping that would help.

This is just what I needed tonight after dinner date night! Soothing vanilla tea…chocolate and berry…but mostly vanilla and delicious. This might be my favourite from the persimmon tree….might.

Kittenna

Do you only have a sample size of this one? It sounds tasty!

Sil

No I have the small size, used to only have the sample but when I won the contest this is the one I picked up. You’re welcome to have a bit if we can get you out of your rock before I finish drinking it all lol

Kittenna

Oooooh, ok! I will try. Maybe if stuff is going well we can meet up in December! :)

drank Earl Grey Supreme by Harney & Sons

TRAVELLING TEA BOX!

Yeah so this might be the first early grey that I’ve ever had a cup of. Horrible I know, but keep that in mind :) This is technically the bagged version, but I’ll forgive it that. As a way of sampling a brand new tea, it’s not bad.

So earl grey….I haven’t had much experience with bergamot, so i’m assuming that’s what i’m tasting…but i can’t be certain. i think i can get behind this tea, but it wouldn’t be an every day tea. There’s a citrus zingy kinda of happening in this tea that confuses my mouth. It means i’ll need to try a few more earl grey’s as well just to see where i land on the whole EG thing…but this isn’t too shabby. This particular tea is really smooth though.

yeah… i think my train of thought just derailed…

LiberTEAS

I’ve noticed that with Harney & Sons … perhaps with them more than other companies, their bagged versions are just so lackluster in comparison to their loose leaf.

Sil

Aaah good to know! Thanks for the tip. I wasn’t a baaad cup just not used to earl grey I don’t think. But ill be trying more of H&S as I go I’m sure.

Loving the travelling tea box :)

Nik

Oooh, it’s good to know that about H&S, as I have some of their bagged teas and I’ve been underwhelmed. Thanks, LiberTEAS!

Sil, now I really want an Earl Grey blend called Prematurely (early) Grey. =P

drank Black-n-Blue by SerendipiTea

mmm tasty tasty blueberry! I really like the zip and zing of this blueberry tea. I think what appeals to me the most of this is that it’s sweet blueberry but there also a bit of sour.

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.
