this + a splash of maple is a good sold every day tea for me. It’s not my all time favourite A&D tea but it makes me happy. and it’s not fussy, which is ever better!

boychik

Holiday i tried (Stephanie shared a sample) is amazing. better than Octoberfest or Red hawk tail

Sil

REALLY? wow.. because i am a fan of oktoberfest and redtail….(and tiger and this one…) I’m super glad i ordered a tin then anyway

boychik

you did ? i dont think you will be disappointed ! when i tried, did precisely 3g 8oz 200F 3min. PERFECTION

Sil

yeah i bugged them for a shipping discount for canada and they gave it to us lol so i had to order

OMGsrsly

Thank you Sil! (My mom would thank you too if she knew. :) )

Sil

What can i say? If we ask, all they can say is no. heh

caile

I ordered because of that discount too – couldn’t resist! ;-)

I had this again this morning, added a little cacao and it was still nothing spectacular. The rest of this is off to Cavo in trad since she’ll love it more than me. if there was ever just a version without the oolong, i might be all over it….

one of my teas from today. This one is almost gone from my cupboard, but will be a restock in the future unless i find something that is comparable and just as tasty. Malty, smoothe, deliciousness…

JC

Try W2T’s Xigui Black tea!

Sil

hmmmm i’ll check it out/wishlist it!

last tea of the evening! I figured i should have this a bit more often even though i don’t want it to go away….mostly because i AM still trying to keep my cupboard within 6 months for non puerh types teas. I’m doing a reasonable job i think as i’ve only got THIS one at 7 months…and 4 that i would have to finish by the end of this month to be within 6 months. Not too shabby for a cupboard that used to sit at 300+ lol This will be a reorder in future if the dollar stops sucking….along with a number of other lupicia teas!

Final Count: 105

evening tea tonight with dinner and checking out 12 monkeys. we don’t watch a lot of tv but there’s have been a lot of shows recently that have peaked my interest. Not too sure about this one, but i’ll give it a few to see how it pans out. Sorry cavo…i tried galavant and it’s just TOOO ketchy….close but no. lol Helix is back…so hopefully that doesn’t get stupid on me…

oh the tea you ask? I still love it…but 2 mins..+ honey or else my mouth is on fire! :P

Cavocorax

Yeah, Idk about 12 Monkeys either. We did the prosthetics for the show (only a few things bc it was pretty low budget), but… ehhh.I’ll watch an ep or so but I don’t think I’ll get hooked.

And Galavant is great if you’re just looking for the most ridiculous show ever. It probably helps that I watch it on the bus on my way to work and am half awake and easily amused!

Sil

i watched 4 episodes of galavant while not watching the screen…. it’s amusing..

I somehow have a LOT of tv that i watch…never used to..

Cavocorax

Four eps is pretty good. I feel a little bad bc #5 & #6 were less great than the first 4, but we’ve only got 2 more to go. Woo. Great for while I knit!

i picked this up again in my last Tao Order because i miss having sichuan caravan in my cupboard. This is similar in that it’s ginger and puerh but that’s as close as it gets. Still though, i enjoy ginger teas and this is a really nicely balanced ginger/puerh cup of tea.

Had another cup of these today so that i can send the rest off to Terri to try out. These are probably middle of the road pearls for me. The brew they create is really nice, smooth and sweet but i would pick up mandala’s in a heart beat first if they ever came back. Still though, these are a decent set of balls :)

I would for sure agree with the description on this one – smooth with gentle sweet citrus tones. It’s not citrus like BLERGAMOT…but it’s got that note in it while still being a really smooth tasty cup. I think i like this one better than the old lady georgia tea from what-cha :)

Maddy Barone

OK, you have to stop posting these reviews! I just went to the WHAT-CHA site and ordered $40 worth of tea! LOL Actually, thanks for opening the world of tea to me. I can’t wait to try these.

Sil

haha the nice thing about what-cha is that you can get all samples! It’s my first time ordering from them and all i did was buy 10g samples of about 20? teas?

Maddy Barone

That’s what I did too. I bought one of their “Discover Teas” and then samples of four others that I wanted to try. I wish more online tea vendors would let us do that.

OMGsrsly

Samples are the best AND the worst. :D I’m gonna try to sip some down today.

juliebeth

i just did that too, and BEFORE i read this particular review. thanks a LOT, y’all.

also, BLERGAMOT? LOL!

Sil

sorry… i’ve renamed bergamot to blergamot because i hate it so much

mmmm i am a fan of this one from what-cha. This is malty and full of cocoa notes and really makes me happy. I’m greatful to the larger-samples sizes that will let me have another cup of this before sharing the other little bit with terri :)

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.
