drank American Breakfast by Mariage Frères

sipdown! (138) and this one goes on the shopping list. It’s like the more elegant cousin of bolder breakfast..smoother, more delicious and less artificial tasting (not that bolder breakfast is artificial tasting but in comparison…). I adore this tea. It won’t replace wedding imperial for me but it WILL have a spot in my cupboard….someday. I hope!

…just need to find a decent source for MF teas without stupid shipping! Thank you again cteresa!

yeah…bumping the rating up on this one since it seems to be the tea i’ve been reaching for when i just want something that i’m comfortable and familiar with and that makes me happy. I ALWAYS drink this one down without realising it so it deserves a higher rating since i clearly love it…with a splash of maple lol

Bonnie

Yum…I think this is my favorite Teavivre Tea.

Sil

it really is delicious!

drank Vanilla Plantation by Silk Road

quick tasting notes on tonight’s stuff before i try to get to bed. Long day tomorrow and i’m up way later than i wanted to be. I had this first thing as a latte and it was the perfect start to my day. I am loving it! still haven’t tried it straight lol

JustJames

this one was not my favourite… too buttercream. not bad certainly, just not my favourite vanilla version =0)

MissB

Too buttercream? How is that even possible. Seriously, that sounds like the best icing ever, in tea format.

JustJames

lol, i don’t like buttercream. now…. spiced cream… as in the stuff i mke to go over pavlova is a whole other story….

Sil

haha i haven’t tried it straight yet, so hard to tell what it tastes like on it’s own…with milk i’m enjoying it a bunch..but i still want to do a comparison with the other vanillas in my cupboard.

drank Carpe Diem by THE O DOR

sipdown! (139) I have not been doing well with drinking up my teas to be good when my orders start coming in. I’m hoping that I’ll get a chance over the next couple of weekend. Should be doable since i’ve got release testing to do this weekend and next.

This one could grow on me..i still like une autre idee more but this was tastier tonight so that’s good to note. Thanks again cteresa!

JustJames

this will seem a strange comment on tea.

i would like to offer my benedition of peace to an old warrior here, sil: nelson mandela died 2 hours ago. he was 95.

given the name of the tea it seemed appropriate.

Sil

Not strange at all. It’s hard to believe that he’s not in this world anymore

JustJames

agreed. wherever he is i hope it’s peaceful.

blech. bah. I think i’m going to need to try this one again and then give the rest up for adoption if i don’t figure it out.

BrewTEAlly Sweet

I have yet to try this from last months box… Do you usually like Genmaicha?

Sil

I do, but this is made with oolong….which I don’t like so much :)

Indigobloom

Kittenna

drank Almond Truffle by Sloane Tea Company
7677 tasting notes

I had this today as well since a recent tasting note reminded me that I hadn’t had it in a while. Not my favourite of the sloane teas – i think they do other teas better but in the grand scheme of things i’d rather spend my money elsewhere UNLESS i get another amazing deal and can snag their teas at 60% off again. Good deal = totally worth it.

This is almond and chocolate and like others have said, feels a little thin. But at least it’s still tasty…

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 4 min, 30 sec

This was one of my teas from this morning. I have to say i wasn’t feeling it today though. It just seemed flatter today than i wanted it to be. I hope our love affair hasn’t come to an end and that i’m just having an off day :)

drank Une Autre Idee? by THE O DOR
7677 tasting notes

last tea of the day and a sample sipdown of that, from the lovely cteresa. Pretty sure i’d be willing to add this into my cupboard, even in a 100g quantity not because it’s the most amazing blow your socks out of the water rooibos, but because it’s lovely and pleasant and when i’ve been drinking it, i keep drinking it down without realising it. Quite pleasant on the whole, so thank you for sharing this one with me cteresa!

(on a cupboard note…added my yezi teas in today and i’m still officially under 150! – 140 to be exact… go me! Note that it’ll last long but hey, the longer the better haha)

first tea of the day (yes my notes are out of wack) this + maple syrup is always a great time. I just really enjoy the way the flavours blend. Must remember to always keep a stock of this in my cupboard since i seem to REALLY like this one the more i have it. :)

Bonnie

I really like this one too!

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.
