drank Vanilla Plantation by Silk Road
7674 tasting notes

I took a 5 min break today to finally get around to trying this tea. I particularly like vanilla teas as lattes, so i opted for that as my first go around with the tea. I am a fan! I’ll write a better review once i have it straight, but as a latte, i am great with this one! Now i just need to get around to comparing it to the vanilla tea from tao leaf tea in my cupboard heh

I owe Angel and teavivre a better review for this tea – work got insanely busy this afternoon and my first steep cooled before i’d even tried it. Long story short, i’m not a fan of most oolongs. This tea? pretty delicious!

and wow…this has been waiting for several hours for me to finish. not going to happen stupid work. long story short, i need to try this one again when i can pay attention to it. but on the whole, a nice tea, and it you like oolongs, probably even more yummy to you!



When i feel stressful, i often take a break to enjoy a cup of tea, to relax the body in the intervals of heavy works.

drank Chai by T2
7674 tasting notes

sipdown! the first time i had this, i forgot to log it. This time, because of my unfortunate experience brewing this with water, i tried it with milk. Sorry to say but this is not so much a chai to me and mostly a mix of cloves…and more cloves and oh hey, some cloves :) The tea disappears with this particular blend and even after trying to pull out a bit of the cloves, it still is too much for me. Thanks for the share though Alice! It’s helping me figure out what my perfect chai might be like :)


Lemme guess… Your perfect chai is going to have … Errr…. Cloves? :p


Haha yes to cloves…but in moderation :p


I might be responsible for some of the excess cloves I’m afraid. When I make it I tend to put some of the cloves back in the jar and since I sent you the last little bit I had… haha sorry, I should have taken some out :(

Even with a reduced number of cloves it is a heavily spiced chai and the tea still gets lost it in. I also didn’t really like that they use ground cinnamon instead of pieces of bark, I think it gives an unpleasant after sensation in the mouth (does that make sense?).


Haha not too worry Alice. And yes I get what you mean with the cinnamon…


I agree, it’s very clovey and spicy (just trying some now and it’s a bit too spicy on the back of the throat).

drank Qing Pin Black Tea by Yezi Tea

Tastybrew sent this our way in the BBB Box. Since i may want to place another order with Yezi in a couple of days, I figured i’d better try a few more of their offerings so i can place a larger order.

This is a fruity, almost peachy tea. The aroma has a hint of spice to it, though the tea itself does not. There is maltiness to this brew…along with hints of cocoa that blend with the fruitiness. Overall a really nice tea!

Working from home today to give myself a bit of a break. Still far too many things to finish up this week to warrant an actual day off, but at least this way i get to hang out in my pj’s drinking tea and working. Plus the time i save from not having to travel, i can use to watch a bit of TV haha

I picked this one for my first tea this morning because i had it a couple days ago but hadn’t had a chance to actually get some thoughts down about it.

This is a chocolately, malty brew. It’s neither bitter, nor smokey. My only “complaint” is that it feels thin? still delicious and tasty but i keep wanting it to be more full in my mouth. I’ll likely pick this one up once i’m done with the amount that Tastybrew sent to me :)

Edit: 3000 tasting notes!


3000??? daaaaang


haha i sometimes forget to log things too.. but it’s a fun number.


Go you! :) I’m tempted to make today a “work at home in PJs” day, but I actually have to go in and set stuff up for tomorrow. Oh well!


i wanted the rest of the WEEK to be pj day… the worst? i had seven things i needed to get done today and were the whole reason i stayed home in part too…to be able to focus on them.. yeah it’s 4pm (i started at 7am) and i’ve completed ONE SINGLE THING RAAAAAAAAAAAAAAWWWWWRRRRRRRRRRRRR so tired of escalations and issue


Holy cow!! Congrats!!!


thanks CHAroma!

sipdown! even if it is a fake sort of sipdown, as i’m sending the other half of the sample terri sent me to FuzzyP :) The worst part of today? this review has been sitting open for hours and i can’t even focus enough to write it. Long story short this is a really tasty tea, though i think it’s a little too different for me to keep around always. if that makes sense. it’s fruity, but in a specific sort of peach grape way, as tastybrew said, rather than that generic “fruity” taste i get. thanks for sharing terri! this one’s neat!

drank Laoshan Black by Verdant Tea

this was one of my morning teas, which seems like an eternity from now. It’s been a challenging week so needless to say i haven’t been drinking much tea or having time to write much about the teas i’ve been drinking. I chose this one because it’s an oldie but a goodie. :)


I hope things calm down a little for you…


Me too…ditto!


Thanks guys….thrs and Friday shouldbe. A little quieter since most of the US folks are on vacation. Working from home today so that I can hang out in my pj’s and listen to music while I work :) and drink tea of course! A mini mental health day while still working. :)

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.
