creamy rasberry flavour – agree with VariaTEA on that one. Brewed this up hot and drank it both hot and cooled off and while it’s a decent cup – no woody roibos here – it’s mroe raspberry than rhuberry heh

VariaTEA

They do “sorbet” well, even if their rhubarb is not around. I found Lime Gelato also had a similar sorbet flavor.

hey terri…i finally finished this! lol Maybe we make a smaller order next time, eh? haha Just enough to last us through the WINTER. Lol still love this, though admittedly it will be nice to have a break from this one….i suspect come winter i’ll be moaning about how i don’t have any. lol. ginger? yes! pumpkin? yes! my favourite pumpkin tea so far…because of the ginger/pumpkin and because it has chunks of real pumpkin in this…not some weird ass generically random “pumpkin spice flavour”

last of this one – not much else to say on this one – it was decent, but not a favourite of mine.

drank Yunnan Wild by Cultivate Tea

This was on my wishlist and variaTEA obliged! I have to say, that this is a really good cup of tea. I’ve only had the one steep right now, but plan on having a few more today while i get through work. It’s smooth, some sweet potato like notes coming through…sweet and not at all astringent. This isn’t a BOLD brew but rather more of an easy drinking tea – a good intro tea for someone who wasn’t really a fan of black tea i would say.

Count: 110 (down from the 120 VariaTEA has me up to….need to get to 80 by end of july…)

drank Assam Superb Tea by Fortnum & Mason

VariaTEA allowed me the chance to try this one again. At 3 mins last time i had it, it was too bitter. At 2 mins, this is a better cup but still not a tea i need. This is a milk and sugar sort of brew imo, which is maybe why my mom loves it haha

drank Iced Kiss by TeaTaxi

brewed this hot, drank it mostly cooled heh. I like this one…a little strawberry, a little apple…some pear. Light in flavour but sweet, not sour like a lot of fruit herbals. I’d pick this one up again i think even with the light flavour because it’s smooth and different than other blends. thanks variaTEA!

nope. nope nope nope nope nope. Not sure what’s going on here but there’s a chemical like taste here – could not drink. One of frank’s blends i suspect, so would give it a shot from liberteas…but otherwise NOPE. (thank variaTEA! hahaha)

VariaTEA

This was from the kickstarter and I had the same reaction you did :(

52Teas

No, this wasn’t from the Kickstarter – I didn’t blend this.

VariaTEA

oops. Sorry guys. I guess I must have placed an order just before the takeover happened.

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.
