drank Sangria White Tea by A Quarter to Tea

Sample from dexter thank you! i always like trying white tea blends. While not always a fan of white teas straight, as blends they often have positive results for me. This one is no exception. While i wouldn’t call this one sangria exactly…the flavours are too delicate and not quite there, it does have a memory like quality of sangria too it. A really nice pairing of flavours that i can see being VERY tasty as a cold brew in summer.

drank Spumoni Green Tea by A Quarter to Tea
7482 tasting notes

Sample from dexter and onw i wasn’t sure since i don’t typically love spumoni but i don’t hate it. Also…green tea base? However, this one, even though i over steeped it :( was pretty decent. the base pairs nicely with the ingredients in this one and makes for a smooth cup of tea. Not going to rate it though, as this would never be a first choice for me. I DO very much appreciate the chance to try it out though, since you never know what might happen…tea is magic! :)

drank Sam Bodhi F.O.P. by Le Palais des Thes

noms. another “long” day of work – i apparently was the only one to not get the memo that everyone is slacking for the next two days. I don’t mind so much because it’s a chance to get a ton of work done, but frustrating when the people who are supposed to be working, are clearly not really around or working. just take the time off if that’s how you roll.

anyway, lots of tea time for me thankfully, so there’s that.

All gone! finished up this sample as well today since my cupboard was just imploded. this was a sample from WP, so no worries there, but as a mental note i don’t think i need this one in my cupboard. it’s pleasant but not out of this world. And heaven knows. teas that are WOW are better than teas that are ok. :)

Finished the last of this today since i SHOULD have my package in the nearish future with more of this. Stupid post office in the US decided it needed to keep my package for 3 weeks in customs. so much love for this tea…it’s like mousse au chocolat but with chestnuts. so excited to have a full 100g of this soon…..sooo sooon..

drank Caramel Pumpkin Cheesecake by 52teas
7482 tasting notes

today has been a gloriously productive day at work, productive playing with the dog AND productive with tea drinking. this was another that i pulled out today to have. I still hold that while this is a lovely tea, it’s much more caramel cheescake than frank’s version. doesn’t make it a bad tea, just a different tea. but i’m ok with that :)

OMGsrsly

it’s like this tea is cursed in my house. Every time i drink it, i either over steep it or i drink it so quickly i don’tt really pay attention to it. I’m guessing that means it sits somewhere in the middle of the road for me haha. either way, a decent bold cup with a strong brassy note this morning because the rental dog made me over steep this one.

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.
