drank Quangzhou Milk Oolong by Pekko Teas

Sooooo as some of you may know, I am NOT a fan of oolongs. Pekko Teas sent me this as their sample so I am nonethless trying it and will likely pop it into the travelling tea box so that others can enjoy the GENEROUS sample they provided. In that way I’ll be able to help share the wealth and give them back a little something for sending the tea my way.

I am also not rating this tea because of the fact that I generally dislike oolongs and i don’t want that reflected on Pekko teas. The leaves of this oolon are super tightly coiled. As for the taste? It’s an oolong :) There’s not an overwhelming floral taste from this, so that’s good. It’s light and those who enjoy oolongs would probably appreciate this tea. I hope that whomever gets this after me enjoys it!

Ooh! Any chance you could set aside a sample of this one for me, if you’re planning to get rid of it anyhow? :)

Sil

Of course! Happy to share to help Pekko tea. The sample they sent is basically an order lol

For a bagged tea this isn’t half bad! The vanilla isn’t overpowering and blends well enough with the nut flavour. I picked this and another up, because until I get around to picking up another brew basket, loose tea is too much of a pain in the ass to deal with at work.

drank Chai by Red Blossom Tea Company

I picked this up on my trip to san francisco. I’m still in search of my perfect chai. I don’t think I’ve ever seen orange peel in any of the chai’s that i’ve tried before, so I thought it might be an interesting twist. The dry scent of this is cloves and an understone of citrus. Once brewed however, this has a really nice taste. The orange brings out the spices nicely without turning this into a “fruity” tea. As usual, I’m drinking this straight. Not a bad Chai…I think I still prefer Verdant’s chai but this is a good blend.

Oh, man, I love orange spice, I’m going to have to add this to my shopping list.

Sil

It’s an interesting blend andihaveavague recollection of the price being reasonable too

Still enjoying this matcha in smoothie format. Blended up another this morning – frozen banana, few cubes of frozen mango, milk, ice and matcha! I really like the way that this smoothie tastes the blend of mango and milk is really nice.

drank Waterlilies Fruit Tea by Teavivre

So as I suspected, this is a brilliant cold brewed tea! Where it’s a nice tangy hot tea, it’s a fantastic cold tea! Tethered a nice berry taste, there’s a bit of tang and the colour is wonderful :) I don’t drink a lot of cold tea in winter but this is likely something to go on my shopping list for summer!

drank Caramel Pumpkin Cheesecake by 52teas

Let me just start by saying that If there’s anyone out there who bought this and doesn’t love it/want it – you just send it my way!
This tea has totally grown on me and now I’m dreading the thought that it will be gone soon. I would love to see this as a permanent tea with frank, though I suspect that is a long shot. Ah well, at least I can enjoy it while i have it.

Helena

no. It’s mine all mine :D

Sil

Helena – I’ll trade you some good morning sunshine lol

So I totally made a quick cold matcha blend tonight for after work out. Mocha, caramel and coffee! Blended it with milk and some ice. It’s actually pretty darn good :)

Azzrian

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.
