CarmeronB sent this one my way so that i could try it. I’m having a hard time describing this one today…it reminds me of chai…but not all cloves and whatever…but something about this makes me think of warm comforting chai with a splash of honey, steeped in milk, simmering on the stovetop. It’s not an overly bold, strong tea but it is delicious. I quite like this one as well. thanks cameron!

I find it interesting that this reminds you of chai. Need to wishlist this for further perusal. I do have a Yunnan Dian HOng 58 from Whispering Pines, wondering if it would be similar….

i have no idea why…i was just getting that sort of “echo” of chai feeling while drinking it…was weird lol

drank Campfire Blend by Verdant Tea

mmmmm… i always find that this and vanilla citrus spice are similar and yet different enough as to be worthy of both having places in my cupboard. Last cup of the evening today since i need to try to get some sleep since i’ll be up from whenever i wake up tomorrow until likely when i go to bed on sunday evening. thankfully i get tuesday off for rememberance/veteran’s day (or as my friends call it..the make believe day off since i’m the only one who has it off). this is calming and relaxing…just the right thing before bed.

Final Count: 74

drank Cacao Chai by Traveling Tea

mmm this was particularly delicious tonight. I over leafed this one just a little and ended up steeping it for a little longer than 3 mins. Turned out quite nice and made for a great cup of tea while doing the dishes. I’ve got an over night tomorrow so i’m trying to clean up a bit around the house to help out my other half.

dropping the rating on this one a little because while it’s still delicious and tasty, i’m finding it’s just not a good tea for the travel mug. Not that it’s the teas fault, but i drink 80% of my tea that way, so i like to have options that work well for both travel mugs and my home mugs :)

i am a fan of this tea! So much that i picked up another package of it when i placed my first YS order, even though i have a decent amount in my cupboard at the moment courtesy of my tea sister terri :)

drank Cookie by Lupicia

flavoured tea of the day! I only stepped this one for 2 mins today and it was just the right combination of good delicious cookie like taste and a slightly burnt flavour that i enjoy.

i don’t know what else to say about this one. I rather enjoy it and that’s why i drank it, love it, will get more hahaha. In tea cupboard related news though, i have no teas left from may, so i just need to finish off my three remaining teas from april in order to have a cupboard that is only 6 months old! that’s pretty exciting in my silly books :)

Another tea from this morning. I’m finally through the last of the other harvest that i was less a fan of than the first harvest i had. I’ve got another 4oz in the cupboard of a different harvest, so it’ll be interesting to see where that one sits in the grand scheme of things.

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.
