drank Christmas Afternoon by Twinings

Another one from MissB as i desperately need to finish up those teas so that i can get them parcelled out and shared with everyone else lol I wasn’t a huge fan of this one…it tasted more like a generic “christmas spice” sort of tea than anything else. It wasn’t bad, but nothing i’m dying to have again or keep around…

this was a sample included in my dragon tea house order and one that i would totally pick up again, though it’s VERY similar to other teas that i love for the same reasons…malty, cocoa-y, dark and delicious. So price would factor in..also the shipping…DH took over a month to get to me, which makes me a sad panda.

I’mfinding tjhast custos is holding Chinese packages for quite a while recently. They held teavivre for close to a week and one of my Ali purchases for close to three weeks. I wonder if they’re back logged or it’s a work to rule thing going on? Neither would surprise me.

Sil

that could be…esp with the holidays

drank Georgia Old Lady Black Tea by What-Cha
6066 tasting notes

I couldn’t resist picking this one up from what-cha during their sale, because of the name lol. What exactly does and old lady tea taste like? well in this case, there’s a fruitness here, which i guess you could call citrus, but i have a hard time distinguishing specific citrus tastes a lot of the time. this has echoes of your typical “red rose” tea but feels fancier and with more depth. Over all, a nice little cup for my first experience with What-Cha

JC

I read the name and I agree with you, the name calls for a try lol.

Lala

The name caught my attention but the red rose reeled me in. Canadian to the core I guess…

Sil

haha lala, i’ll add some to the box for you – consider it repayment for all your surprises :)

Lala

ha ha. Ok thanks. I would appreciate that. But not too many surprises, ok?…

i told omgsrsly that i would try this one today since we both ended up ordering it from CS during their sale the other week. This tea has super cute little curly buds that made me smile as i wasn’t expecting that today.

So i don’t actually get cocoa from this one…it’s more of a slightly sweet, malty tea..with a hint of “dirt?” lol maybe there’s a little cocoa there in the background if i concentrate, but this one is vastly different from other cocoa/chocolatey teas that i’ve had. I’ll have to try this one gonfu as well to see how that changes things up.

OMGsrsly

:D I’m planning on trying this one gong fu when I wake up.

i haven’t had a chance to drink any tea tonight because i had three orders to organise. I really wanted to at least get the teas in to my cupboard and my spreadsheet so that after i package up my tea care packages this weekend, i’ll be able to organise my ACTUAL cupboard. lol i like having this one from time to time, so i’m glad i picked up the teabags over christmas. i don’t need a TON of this in my cupboard but i do like the blend of spices in this one, especially with just a teeny, tiny bit of sweetner.

Final Count: 113 and a new tea pet!

CrowKettle

113! Holy crap, congrats!

OMGsrsly

CrowKettle, that’s up from her low which was 60-something? IDK, I wasn’t paying that much attention. :)

CrowKettle

Where have I been.. clearly paying less attention than you XD

Sil

haha i managed to get down to 75 and make my year end goal. I think this year i’m going to aim for 50 by year end heh

drank Laoshan Black by Verdant Tea

still one of my favourites though i much prefer it + cacao these days since the latest harvest have been much less chocolatey and more dirtlike lol

OMGsrsly

:P They’re all dirtlike! All of them!

LiberTEAS

Dirt = yuck. Chocolate = yum. Tea companies, take note.

Indigobloom

I noticed that with the last batch I had, this one seems to be better though

tea from today…with a little maple syrup added. delicious! Really glad i got to order this now that i’s never coming back. Also glad to have at least one keemun in my cupboard, though i guess as of today there are a few more lol

Terri HarpLady

I enjoyed this one, although I only had a few cups of it.

Sil

they stopped being able to source it… but i MIGHT have managed to score some and half MIGHT be in your box lol

Terri HarpLady

Cool!
Speaking of boxes…I really need to get my act together here :(

drank Choco Shou by Camellia Sinensis
6066 tasting notes

i picked this one up in my first CS order because i wanted to try at least ONE flavoured from them that was on the bolder side, since steepster friends have let me try their lighter flavoured teas. This was actually much tastier than expected. Something about the way the puerh balances and plays with the chocolate, really just works for me. I’d be inclined to try steeping this one in milk as well some time to see how it fares. Just a deliciously darker chocolate sort of treat! YUM!

Terri HarpLady

Sounds tasty :)

Roswell Strange

Cough This is one I’d be curious about trying Cough

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.
