Another tea from my swap with Anlina I am a fan! This is just the right balance of lime, mint and sort of cucumber taste. i had this hot but i can imagine this being super tasty in the summer as a cold beverage. i would pick this up again for sure!

oh god. So i couldn’t find this one on steepster because it was hiding away from the rest of the secret garden teas. I’ve located it now and tried to condence the listing but at the time i brewed this, i was just thinking some sort of black blend.
firs sip.. ah gawd! it’s…it’s jasmine! and blergamot! IN THE SAME CUP! aaaaah! yeah that’s pretty much how that went. Still though, i’ll try nearly anything. and i suppose if you like that sort of thing and it wasn’t your mortal enemy…this would be a decent cup as the base blends nicely with those ingredients. bah. lol

thanks anlina!


haha blergamot. ah, you might have just made my day.


goodie :)


I’m picturing you doing an exorcist type head spin.


hahaha ok THAT cracks ME up

Hahaha. :D :D :D

this was my morning tea today, though it’s not exactly this tea. A few of us are experimenting with vanilla bean and this was a trial to see how the blending is coming along. so far so good, it’s not nearly as vanilla-y as i want it to be but it it IS really tastey. the vanilla adding a little creaminess to this base. I’ll have to let is sit a little longer and maybe add a bit of vanilla powder as well, see if that helps make it a richer taste. so far though, not too shabby!


Interesting! I’m drinking this one right now, but no vanilla. :| Maybe I’ll go to bulk barn and grab some!


i’ll let you try some of mine…i made a cups worth so i’d have a few cups to play with. Esp since i still have an entire tin i haven’t opened yet of the spring keemun. Figured if i LOVED it as a base, i’d have more to play with heh


I liked the vanilla flavor/strength that I got but not the base. Will have to play with others…


I don’t think this is as easy as just tossing some vanilla into any black tea….


I’ll report on the one that i did with LB later too. I added a little vanilla powder to that from the get go as well…so two different types of vanilla in essence

drank Coconut Truffle by Two Guys' Tea

another tea from Anlina that i had the other night. This one is a must try for coconut lovers. That being said, i’m not a HUGE fan of coconut as i find in tea blends that it goes rancid fairly quickly and sometimes the tastes is too intense. That being said, i can understand how folks who love coconut would enjoy this a bunch. It’s creamy and chocoaltey and very much like a dessert tea. Sadly the coconut is too much for me to really love it. It’s more personal preference than this being a bad tea. :)

i adore this tea. It is simply fabulous and delicious. I seriously wish that there was a way to get more of this. It resteeps wonderfully…works well as western brew or in a gaiwan…just. yum. Only one package left and then it’s gone for ever… sigh

drank Laoshan Village Chai by Verdant Tea

I still enjoy having this one, but it’s a little sad that it’s almost spring as my desire for chai’s usually falls off then. I’ll try to drink up more of this before it gets to be summer though :) If i take out the goji berries, i love it! heh

drank Zheng Shan Xiao Zhong by Yezi Tea

noms. I am lazy these days. Maybe it’s not lazy so much as…. drained. I keep falling behind with things – tea related and otherwise. I had this one a couple days ago – feeling like very little progress is happening with my tea cupboard this year. lol it’s almost april and i’m still well over what i ended last year with. Still enjoying the teas though, so that’s all that really matters. :)

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.
