Tried this cold brew and it’s a little better but not by much.

Iced 8 min or more

Another adgio tea from my swap with terri. She was kind enough to toss a bunch of these into my swap with her as i won’t willingly touch the stuff myself because of a bunch of bad experiences with adagio previously.

I’m not sure how i feel about this tea..it’s sort of like a sweet black tea with a dash of cinnamon. My brain can’t figure this one out this morning. It’s not bad, though i’m still not a fan of adagios tea bases apparently. Interesting tea for now :)


Hobbit tea, really?

Another sample from my swap with terri.

While this is not my favourite keemun to date, this is a lovely cup of tea. There’s a bit of astringency here that isn’t my fav but it’s not overwhelming and certainly doesn’t ruin the cup. Glad to have tried this one..i will try all the teas someday.

Sipdown! 259

This will likely become a reorder whenever i get around to placing another della terra order. not because this blows me out of the water or anything but because as far as orange cream teas go, this is relatively decent and has the benefit of being rooibos. While i prefer the lime and lemon chiffon, this one is less of a tangy brew than the two of them, so it’s a nice counter to them.

Have you tried it iced?


I did not but I’m sure I will at some point dance I order more :)

Thank you tastybrew for a sample of this one.

I’m sorry to say that I totally ended up drinking this and got to the bottom of the cup without really paying attention to what i was drinking. Not that it was bad, but we were watching a show and I guess i was involved with it :) I have a bit more that I’ll use to make a proper tasting note but this was a pretty good tea – though the specifics escape me :)

drank Caramel Vanilla Assam by Butiki Teas

SIPDOWN! though it’s only until i get my actual order from kittenna in may. Terriharplady was awesome enough to send me the last little bit of hers because she had another order on the way. heh That’s how awesome she is!

So i get to try this and now, now i’m glad that i’ve got almost 2oz coming my way. I think most of the reviews have covered off how good this is. I just wanted to add that funnily enough it smells a lot like red leaf’s caramel matcha when i opened the bag. though that’s about as similar as they are lol

I am thoroughly going to enjoy re-steeping this tonight while i relax and enjoy my tv shows and delicious dinner.

(oh yeah..260 sipdowns! yes i can count, it’s just that i had to add in the few teas i picked up from tastybrew)

gross. ick. no thank you. I’m sure there are folks out there who will love this as a green tropical blend but i pretty much just put the last of the sample i split back into the bag for kittenna so that it’s not in my house anymore lol

Not overly a fan of this one. It’s sweet and peach like and i guess it could be a good one to have on your cupboard if you want more rooibos non caffeine blends but that’s as far as i’ll go. overall pretty meh.


even the tea name isn’t appealing at all ! I wish several American brands decide to use more glamorous names :)

drank Cinnamon Crackle by Della Terra Teas

soooo no poprocks that i can see or hear. Sadly this tastes like every other cinnamon sort of tea out there. rest of this going into my swap box since i can do without since there are better out there if i REALLY want a cinnamon 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.
