so i totally had this again today. I came home today, to a package from omgsrsly and Bear With me… my cupboard is now exploded….84 to 114 in a day. Thankfully SOME are small samples, but there are a few i’ll have to share with other ppl…Looking forward to trying them as there are some wishlist teas (orange dolce yay!) in there as well as a restock of one of my favourite winter teas EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Final Count: 114

Bear With Me

I was hoping you’d spread the West Coast love when I sent slightly obscene amounts ;) Let me know if there are any Janet’s ones you want more of and I’ll pick them up and ship ’em out for you in the new year :)

Sil

another tea from today – mostly because i’d like to get through my older harvest haha I’m sitting on about 8oz of this in the house, so no need to save it for a bit.

Terri HarpLady

I still have plenty, plus I picked up 2 oz of the most recent harvest, because I think maybe now I have 3 or 4 different harvests, & it would be fun to compare them, right?

I think i need to relegate this one to non travel mug status. I am just not feeling it when i’ve been taking it to work in travel mugs.

drank Orange Pistachio Rooibos by Anteaques

lovely tea from raritea brewed up a cup tonight to try it out so i could pass the rest of the sample on to the next person. My only complaint about this one? not enough orange! haha this for me was largely a pistachio sort of rooibos blend. However, it was delicious, so i can’t fault it for that. I just can’t get enough of orange in my teas (though i don’t like blergamot! ‘cause that’s citruslike bleh) thanks for sharing Raritea!

Final Count: 84 (though that will be going up again tomorrow….)

I’m sort of over this tea. I shared some with raritea and kittenna over the weekend and figured i should make myself a cup as well this afternoon. Don’t get me wrong..it’s nice hojicha…and it’s got a decent enough flavour to it..but it’s never what i want when drinking it.

I’m not too crazy about it myself… hmm

this was another tea from this morning, but Raritea came over for a visit so i was distracted for a while. today this is exceptionally chocolatey and delicious. such a fantastic cup of tea.

Dexter

Do you have 2013 of this? I thought it was much better than 2014…..

Sil

I am of the same opinion you are…sadly 2013 sold out before I could pick any up…so I just have the bag of 2014.

boychik

I have 2013. i bought it in March when new harvest wasnt available. we are always looking for fresh harvest to have the freshest tea but this kind of tea gets even better with age. on some sites specializing in Yancha the ones from 2011 or 2012 are more expensive than 2014.

Dexter

….. add 2013 ZSXZ to Sil’s box…..

Terri HarpLady

I love this tea. I have the 2014, still unopened, & maybe some 2013 left, I think.

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.
