Another meh tea from this morning. I’ll have to see if it gets any better when i have time to sit and drink and log at the same time but this is a little better than snow fairy imo, though not by much.

ick. Backlog from earlier so not too sure what i recall, but i do not this wasn’t all that tasty or refreshing. I’m going to try it as a cold brew and see if that helps, otherwise, into the swap box it goes. there is a pineappley taste to this but its slightly artificial and now what i hoped it would be.

SIPDOWN! backlog from earlier today. Note to self, this is so much better at slightly warmer than room temperature lol. Happy to have this back in the house temporarily and it will likely come and go in my cupboard.

Backlog from this morning. Thank you Scheherazade for sharing this with me! This is a super wonderful delicious tea. There’s no bitterness to this and it’s very much what i want the majesteas leslievill strawberry patch tea to be. This is the taste of fresh juicy delicious strawberries! now of course my delemna is whether to have the last of this cold or hot. oh man.

drank Mint Cacao Tea by Herbal Infusions

SIPDOWN! Figure i might as well finish this one off today since it’s the straight cacao that i prefer. Not that I have any of that one left but hey, not to worry! Still enjoying this one and it’s nice to start my day off with a few good teas (i’m ignoring the first two i drank today). Costco trip later this afternoon once my other half is off of work. I don’t really want to go since it’s a little chillier out there today but i figure i’ll just pack some tea and get through it.

choco mint! thank you :)


omg costco… I love to hate and hate to love that place. Score any bulk deals? heh

Decided i would try this one western style today and save the last bit to try gonfu another time. I think this tea is over my head. Or i’m having taste issues and don’t realise it (stupid allergies) Now, don’t get me wrong, it’s a lovely tea but as i go through the steepings, I am not getting nearly anything that others have. Overall this pretty much tastes like a fine black tea. I suspect that is in part to my preference to strong bold blacks. I’ll save the rest for a rainy day and see where that journey takes me then.

Final verdict on this tea? no thanks. I can’t get over the strangely weird taste that it has even though the dry aroma is quite lovely. I’m thinking maybe it’s the juniper? Not sure, in any case, fine with seeing this one go.

This one isn’t bad but today there’s a fair bit of bitterness in the cup that i can’t explain. I may have to go dig out a few other straight blacks this morning and see how they fare today.

backlog and a sipdown!

Thanks again to lala for sharing this one with me from her local shop. I an still enjoying this one quite a bit. It’s a pretty tasty green pear tea i find, though slightly different from other pear teas. Sad to see this one go!


Pssssst prickly pears are cactus fruit, not actual pears ;)


I know….doesn’t mean it doesn’t taste like a pear :p

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.
