drank Pomme by Hediard

noms. I pulled this one out because it’s a different sort of apple. This isn’t trying to be fresh green apple and thankfully it’s not apple cinnamon. This is just baked apple without the spices. it’s also…yes, that’s right… a BLACK! tea base haha.

drank L'Abricot by Fauchon

Pulled this one out after wandering for the afternoon. I’m trying to get back in to exercising, so this week i’ve been actively pushing myself to get back up to my step count goal in addition to at minimum 3 days with exercise outside of walking (cardio, yoga etc..). Nice to revisit this one as i think it’s one of the best apricot teas that i’ve had. Nice to have something that isn’t peach! plus it’s a black base..so yeah!

drank Poire by Mariage Frères

noms. i pulled this one out because i have so many fancy french teas that i need to drink and i always enjoy them just a little more when i’m home. I’d forgotten how lovely the pear in this one is and unique, because of the black tea base. I find pear is generally paired with a green tea base, which isn’t my favourite. this though, is pear….and a great base. I see in my other note i was going to add a little sugar but i didn’t do that this time, will try next time :)

pulled this out today – so many teas and now i’m going to see how long i can go without making a purchase. No trips planned and i just got my order in from bellocq, so i think i can do this. Ideally i’d like to get my cupboard down to the 50 that i wanted it to be at by the end of the year, though that isn’t going to happen anymore (i’ll be lucky if i can get to 75 which is what i started this year at). I like how this has changed since it came out. Much more delicious now that it’s a little older – smoother and maltier :)

Uh oh, let’s just hope nothing too exciting will be happening in the tea world for Boxing Week.

OMGsrsly

Sil

drank Cranberry Orange Cider by 52teas
7534 tasting notes

I couldn’t resist having this one today after smelling it. Cranberry, orange deliciousness. Honestly i am in love with the dry aroma of this one. Brewed, this might be my favourite of the 3 that i’ve tried so far. It’s got the tang from the cranberry but it’s still orange, christmas cider…if that makes sense. I did find that it’s best tasted as it’s cooled a little but before it gets closer to cold. I had to add a tiny bit of sugar because i let it cool off too much and the sharpness of the cranberry came through a little too much. But a tiny bit of sugar and it was delicious again :)

This tea left my tea studio smelling amazing for two weeks after I blended it! My family kept bugging me, asking me “is that tea ready yet?” because they wanted to try it so bad!

I had some of this last night and it’s AMAZIIIIING. I’m doing my write-up of all 5 teas and this one was my favourite.

Hmm, now I’m regretting not picking some of this up.

drank Tisane de L'abbaye by THE O DOR
7534 tasting notes

Organised my cupboard today to get a handle on things – and pulled this one out to have again since i haven’t had it in ages. 119 teas, 7.8kg (17.2 pounds), and my oldest tea is from April. Not too bad.

This one is still enjoyable even in my inability to place what this tastes like haha

OMGsrsly

You could do some weight lifting with those teas. ;)

another one from the 51 teas kickstarter. This was the one i was most excited about (though let me tell you the orange, cranberry cider smells AMAAAAZING) because it has laoshan tea in it from verdant. The final execution of this? Not bad, but not as deliciously amazing as i’d hoped. This is nice though…peppermint, chocolate and the marshmallow rounding out the flavours and blending them together a little. I’m going to enjoy drinking the rest of this :)

I keep seeing reviews of this on my dashboard and it’s making me sad that I had no clue that these had been available!

Sil

awe :( i think she’s selling some of the “extra” on her site now though

Emilie

I probably shouldn’t buy more tea, but I may have to go look..

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.
