too much cinnamon and chicory root. I couldn’t finish this one tonight because i was just wrong. wrong taste, wrong thing paired with dinner. wrong wrong wrong. but, as always, glad to try new things and thankful for tea sharing friends like variaTEA :)

one from omgsrsly that is pretty decent. My other half did come to find me while i was waiting for the water to boil… “uh hun…whatever’s in the red basket smells like vomit…” “no love, that’s blueberry.” “maybe that’s why i don’t love blueberries.”

:)

keychange

Hmmm, how do you find this compares with blueberry jam? can you remember? LOL.

Sil

i hate blueberry jam. :)

Sil

(the tea from david’s i assume you mean)

Indigobloom

Sil, would you say that this is the same as Blueberry jam minus the stevia?

OMGsrsly

LOL. I think I liked this one. (And also, more blueberries for ME! Hope the bag of them in your freezer get put to good use. :) )

Sil

IB – no because I hate blueberry jam and I like this tea lol

Omg – I love blueberries….he doesn’t understand why ppl love them

Indigobloom

Its a finicky tea for me. Sometimes I adore it, other cups not so much! But I totally get the blueberry hate. I despise certain foods with it – like yogurt or muffins. Blech. I love tarts though. Go figure…

drank Chai Bag Ginger by Lupicia

more chai than ginger, but then i’m not sure any ginger tea would be enough ginger for me. Bag from variaTEA and not bad, but not what i was looking for. There’s more clove/cinnamon going on here than ginger imo.

drank One Night In Rio! by Camellia Sinensis

Another one from VariaTEA I was looking forward to trying this one because it’s a favourite of the girls and yet, i’ve never gotten around to ordering it or trying it from them. Sadly, this one fell a little flat for me. It’s a decent coconut black, but i was not getting any real sense of the pinapple – which i think would have made it a much more interesting blend for me. that being said, still tasty and i did enjoy finishing this one up!

drank Everest Earl Grey by Nepali Tea Traders

Another from VariaTEA and yes…it’s an early grey. But this is a muted, orange-ish sort of tea. it’s less earl grey and more…weird orange black tea. Not a fan…was hoping from something different with the vanilla addition in this one.

drank Wedding by Lupicia

teabag sample from variaTEA nope. not fan. nothing particularly offensive about this one, it’s just not what i want. it’s got that fruity, reminds me of peach sort fo flavour to it that is turning me off it a little.

drank Tea Break by Lupicia

single cup teabag sample from variaTEA this one is pretty middle of the road for me. Reminds me a little of classic red rose, but a little higher quality and a bit fruiter. not bad, nothing i need more of :)

drank Fu Shou Shan by Butiki Teas
7131 tasting notes

cavocorax sent this one my way and it’s just not working for me. Mostly, it’s a mouthful of floral for me..not the delicious buttery spinach flavour that i prefer in a green oolong…you know, when i actually drink those :) Still though, super glad i got the chance to try it…happy i didn’t fall in love with it since butiki is no more. thanks Cavo!

Kittenna

This one is so amazing…

i have too many teas. My goal was to be at 65 by the end of september but then people…you know who you are…decided i needed 90+ teas in my cupboard. And to here i am, at 176 today. So my mini goal for this weekend? Get down to 150. Easily doable if i get any time whatsoever to spend at home this weekend. This was one of those single cup sipdowns. I’m not generally a fan of oolongs, but this was a free sample in one of my verdant orders and is decent. Not enough for me to want it IN my cupboard, but enough for me to sit and drink and enjoy, versus pouring it down the drain after trying it :)

nice roasty feel to this one, smooth and unoffensive.

Kristal

I feel you! I wanted to be lower than I am but then DAVIDs made a spiced pumpkin tea I love, and my frequent steeper points are redeemable in 4 days and I will have 150g of free tea (I think Butterfly Jasmine is in order!)

Nicole

That’s what happens when you go and have gifting events. :)

Sil

you mean that’s what happens when they hear i’m under 100 lol

OMGsrsly

I am cackling. :D You should know better than to advertise that you’re under 100. ;)

Sil

Omg- fine I won’t tell you guys where I am until I get down to 50

OMGsrsly

See, that is a sound plan. :D

noms. THIS is a really interesting tea. Indigobloom let me have a sample of this one and it’s tasty. I am totally getting the rum/aged tea sort of vibe from this one. You for sure get that sense of aged alcohol from this one. it’s got a rum sort of oak feeling that i have eben really enjoying this morning. thanks IB!

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.
