Nothing to add much on this one, see previous tasting notes. I had a travel mug of this today while running some quick errands. Have to love buy one get one free towels that are uber awesome quality :)

TastyBrew

drank Peach Oolong by The London Tea Room
6492 tasting notes

sipdown! a sil sized cup for me and a share with a friend :) Thanks terri for sending some of this my way. For an oolong? this ain’t half bad…for a peach tea, there’s a bit of an after taste here that is sitting funny in my mouth this morning. I’m not sure if that has anything to do with my sinuses being messed up, but it’s not my favourite taste. That being said though, it’s not a bad taste, just an after taste that it’s my fav. Overall this is a pretty decent tea. I like that the peach has a bit of sour too it, as if they’re slightly on the unripe side. But not enough to detract from the peach taste. thanks again terri!

drank The Sweet Life by PureAromaTea

backlog sipdown! (223, after some adds and deletions but there’s another box waiting at the post office for me….eek!)

Another tea that went off to my friend last night after sharing a cup. I don’t think i’d reorder this but not because it isn’t a lovely tea. I just don’t love the taste of marzipan so it wouldn’t be something i would need to have on hand lots. I would however pick this up now and then in the sampler size to have a few cups :)

Terri HarpLady

gotta love those samplers!

drank Strawberry & Kiwi by PureAromaTea

backlog sipdown! I had another cup of this last night but the rest went off with a friend who is looking for more variety in her herbal teas. She’s suffering from a heart arythmia and so her doc has said no more caffeine for a bit. So she came over to raid my cupboard since she knew i’d have a bunch to toss her way lol She was pretty amazed that i have 200+ teas and they all tuck away nicely in my bookcase. I think i’ve given her some ideas lol. I quite enjoyed this tea and will likely pick some up again. :)

drank Starry Night by Art of Tea

backlog sipdown!

sooo this cup of this tea? no thanks..but the last cup was delicious. So either i had a cup with more star anise than the first one or i did something wrong this second time. I don’t think i’d stock this permanently in my cupboard as a result of having two vastly different experiences. Thank you tastybrew though for sending this my way!

drank Keemun by The Tea Spot
6492 tasting notes

backlog sipdown! Had this yesterday and after all of that, this is a pretty middle of the road keemun for me. It’s not bad but it’s not exciting and different. This could be in my cupboard or not. I’m still glad to have tried it, since i wouldn’t be opposed to having it in my cupboard again :)

Terri HarpLady

I think the first time I tasted this one I really enjoyed it, there was some novelty to it that I can’t quite remember. The last time it wasn’t really all that for me. I really enjoy Keemun’s, but they aren’t Assam or Yunnan, if you know what I mean ;)

Sil

haha yeah! I do like my keemun from red blossom though…it’s much more smokey than this one. Overall give me an assam anyday. not sure where i fit with yunnans yet :)

backlog and sipdown!

I tried this hot brewed yesterday and man it was super delicious! I actually think i prefer this hot or would brew it hot and then cool it down. It was super tasty and i ended up gulping it down and getting to the bottom of my giant cup way too quickly. Thanks so much for this one lala! love it! especially since it’s a herbal i can add to my list :)

Preparation
Boiling 6 min, 0 sec
Lala

This is definitely one of my new favorites too!

drank Keemun by The Tea Spot

I had this earlier in the day when I was trying to see how I was feeling. Sadly I don’t recall much, beyond feeling like it was an average every day kind of Keemun. Ill write more after I have the last cup of this.

Thanks to Lala for a share of this one. I’m totally intrigued by this tea. I have to say i’m not yet sure how i feel about it haha. I tried this as a cold brew first and i’ll save the rest of this for a hot brew. This reminds me a lot of instant iced tea but tastier. The only downside is the significant number of brown floaties in the cold brew. Such that my other half wouldn’t even try it lol I’m pretty sure this is a win in my books but i’d like to see how it fares hot first as well :) Thanks for the share lala

Preparation
Iced 8 min or more
Lala

Mmmmmmm tea floaties!! :)

Terri HarpLady

So what exactly was floating around? I like the name of this one :)

Sil

Pretty sure it’s just the pieces of dried lemon. Nothing wrong with the taste its just reminds me of when instant tea powder isn’t quite mixed in. :)

Sipdown! (219) I like this tea in concept. Hazelnut + vanilla instead of the usual chocolate hazelnut? Yes! In this particular tea, it’s either the hazelnut or the base that make me want for something more. Still though, not a terrible cup of tea and this one was less sneezy than the other one lol. now that i’m thinking about it, i don’t love adagio’s hazelnut so that might be what it is about this one. I did enjoy trying another adagio cup though :) thanks terri!

Terri HarpLady

I do enjoy my Hazelnut, & since I’m an Aquarius, I had to have the tea! :)

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.
