noms! this one is from kittenna and i was super glad to get a sample of this. I missed being able to order this one which made me super sad. I’m glad i was right to want this one as it’s fantastic. I love the smoke and the banana and it makes me happy. The maple is really in the aftertaste, and i added just a few drops to the last half of my cup to see what that would do – amaaazing! lol I really did love this cup! Thanks so much for sharing kittenna!

You might get more of this then, unless I change my mind with cup #2… I was just not in love.

I’ve been sipping on this one most of the afternoon. It’s another really refreshing, light puerh. The first few sips were clean, slightly like spring water… as i had subsequent steeps, it became slightly nutty and then trended towards green tea/vegetal like :)

sample from raritea Most of the time darjeelings are just not my thing. They’re too fussy and the tastes is never anything i’m craving. this is a pretty decent tea. Not much else to say on the subject besides it was a decent cup of tea this morning :)

Another from omgsrsly expect that to be a trend lately while i get through the samples from her, Kittenna and bear with me! I feel like i’ve had a tea from this estate before but who knows how i’d be able to check without sorting lol This one feels like it needs milk. I don’t have a large nuber of teas in my cupboard that require any sort of addition (milk, honey, maple syrup etc….) because i like the no fuss of things.

tea from omgsrsly today is surprisingly busy at work, all things considered, so not sure how many sipdowns i’ll get through unless i bust out the herbals tonight. This is an interesting one for me. It’s a juicy, slightly malty (but more juicy) assam. It’s not super bold, but there’s enough character here for it to not be a wimpy cup of tea. I had this one first thing today to kick off the day! thanks lady!

haha omgsrsly sent this one to me (sipdown!) I actually don’t mind it…but i think i’d like it better without the apple. It adds a weird sort of fruity taste to it whereas the rest of the ingredients work a little better together. Still though, will be interesting to compare this one to the black tea base version :) thanks lady!

Final Count: 112 (9.5 sipdowns a day for the rest of the days i’m home would get me back to my goal for the end of the year….totally doable. maybe. )

drank Walter Bishop Honeybush by 52teas

kittenna dropped the rest of her package off with me this past weekend because i love this tea…lovED this tea. Not sure if this was a reblend or what, but this doesn’t taste nearly as wonderful and yummy and delicious as when i first had it, and i even added the strawberries from my butiki tea to it :( Thank you so much for the kind thought though Kittenna! I will still enjoy finishing the rest of this off :)

Kittenna

It was the same bag, but I suspect the packaging helped it lose a bit of flavour. I still thought it was pretty decent when I drank it recently before sending it off :D

Sil

oh i enjoyed it! and finished it alllll up! lol

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.
