still one of my favourites though i much prefer it + cacao these days since the latest harvest have been much less chocolatey and more dirtlike lol


:P They’re all dirtlike! All of them!


Dirt = yuck. Chocolate = yum. Tea companies, take note.


I noticed that with the last batch I had, this one seems to be better though

tea from today…with a little maple syrup added. delicious! Really glad i got to order this now that i’s never coming back. Also glad to have at least one keemun in my cupboard, though i guess as of today there are a few more lol

I enjoyed this one, although I only had a few cups of it.


they stopped being able to source it… but i MIGHT have managed to score some and half MIGHT be in your box lol

Speaking of boxes…I really need to get my act together here :(

drank Choco Shou by Camellia Sinensis

i picked this one up in my first CS order because i wanted to try at least ONE flavoured from them that was on the bolder side, since steepster friends have let me try their lighter flavoured teas. This was actually much tastier than expected. Something about the way the puerh balances and plays with the chocolate, really just works for me. I’d be inclined to try steeping this one in milk as well some time to see how it fares. Just a deliciously darker chocolate sort of treat! YUM!

Sounds tasty :)

drank Key Lime by DAVIDsTEA

Another from last night and one i MIGHT consider picking up a bit more of. I find that i have enjoyed drinking this, and even when it’s cooled i still like finishing off the cup. The lime is tasty and i think it might be interesting with a little sweetner as well.

Final Count yesterday: 82

This was another from last night that i finished up. There’s a package waiting for me in mail jail tonight, so i wanted to get through a few more of my samples. Plus, i still need to figure out what tea i want for free from David’s from last year. This is ok…just not my favourite. Like many of david’s teas, I’m good with just a few cups and then i don’t need any more.

Cold brew of this yesterday since i’m sending the last of this over to Anlina along with a few other treats. Cold brew this has a sweetness to it that i’m not sure i like. I think i prefer this hot brewed, and then cooled if i’m having a cold brew of this. Dropped the rating on this a little because as i’ve had more of it, I like it a little less than i used to, but it’s still a nice tea as i like having herbals in my cupboard.

another from MissB while this one IS a little tart, it’s also very much raspberry. Not my favourite of the bunch, but i’ve been really impressed with how tasty these bagged teas are.

MMMM…. Pulled this one out to try today based on the reviews i read yesterday and this one IS a good one. It’s the right balance of malty, sweet and smooth that i really like. aaand work just totally interrupted that. 4 hours later i’m uh… drinking other things lol

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.
