drank Rainbow Rooibos by Janet's Special Teas

another from bear with me Sadly this one fell short for me. There’s something about the raspberry/strawberry that just doesn’t work. It had a slightly articificial taste to me as well, that i couldn’t get past. It might be tastier as a latte though since the milk would make it creamier. thanks for the share BWM!

Bear With Me

Definitely better with milk

drank Mango Passion by Bayswater Tea Co.
5926 tasting notes

haha i love that omgsrsly found this one weird..and odd. For me, it’s actually pretty tasty, even if it is an oolong but the mango reminds me more of peach….but then maybe that’s the result of the passion fruit flavour being added to it. Still though, quite a ncie tea, and i’d be interested in trying it hot brewed, iced. with just a dash of sweetner to really bring out the flavours… thanks lady!

OMGsrsly

It’s just a little toasty. I do like the flavour of this one!

drank Mountain Rain by Silk Road
5926 tasting notes

tea from omgsrsly i was a little worried as this one brewed up because it had a really floral scent to it. however, the actual tea is much more mellow and almost, dare i say it, boring? There’s a freshness and a sweetness here that is really nice…and there’s none of that dreaded oolong taste that i don’t like…but it’s just kinda…boring. lol not sure how else to describe it..maybe it’s just a little light in it’s tastes? Still a good cup, and as far as green oolongs go this is really nice…just…subdued. :)

OMGsrsly

Uh oh! I haven’t managed to try this one yet. But that sounds about right for Silk Road. Expensive, and yet somehow really simple.

drank Ice Wine by Janet's Special Teas
5926 tasting notes

this one was another from bear with me and one that i had side by side with the boysenberry. The other tea is better haha but this one wasn’t bad. I’ve had a few ice wine blends now, and i’m generally not a fan. this one wasn’t overly grape-y….it was grapes but not as intensely as other versions that i’ve had. Again, i really think teh base that janet uses, is what really sells it. It’s still tea….but flavoured. (if that makes sense) Hopefully ill get a chance to check her store out in person in 2015 heh.

drank Boysenberry by Janet's Special Teas
5926 tasting notes

this is a great berry tea! bear with me sent this my way and pulled it out today to see how it would fare on a day when i was sure to drink part of it hot and then get distracted with work and drink it cold lol This relaly is a boysenberry tea. The base is delicious…i wish other companies could use ceylon bases like this. It blends really well with the flavours and doesn’t have that weird bitter taste. Thanks for sharing this one BWM! this is really tasty!

Bear With Me

This might be my favourite berry black, actually. And tasty any way you make it. Try it as a latte if you are so inclined. Tastes a bit like pie ;)

drank Special Dark by Mandala Tea
5926 tasting notes

I have been neglecting my pot for a couple weeks so i pulled it out today to be the unflavoured tea i drinking while i try to get through a few samples from friends today. it’s a deliciously wonderful contrast to the flavoured teas and has been great for giving my little pot a work out today :)

Another tea from this morning! I am certainly slacking a little today. I quite enjoy this particular jin jun mei, though i’m not typically a fan of this type of tea :)

delicious cup of tea this morning as I’m trying to work on samples AND get around to trying/re-trying some of my YS teas. This was a really nice cup of sweet, malty deliciousness! a really nice pick from YS.

last tea of the evening! this is my oldest tea in my cupboard (from june) so i’m gradually working on sipping it down, though i’m not in too much of a hurry because it’s a rooibos 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.
