So my cupboard…back up to 163, though i’ve managed at least a couple sipdowns tonight. Here’s hoping i can get to 150 this weekend at the least. I suppose i MIGHT be able to hit my sipdown goal but only if i don’t go crazy in vancouver AND i get through at least 15 this weekend. otherwise, not going to happen lol. 4 more teas on their way that will show up on monday AND i’m working on a couple swaps at the moment. I just can’t help myself.

This tea is one that MissB didn’t add to steepster and since i’m only drinking a cup (sil sized) of it, i’m going to be lazy.

Rooibos Tangerine – The tea Place.

seriously? so. good. as in, smells AMAZING and tastes delicious! This would be one i could stock in my cupboard a bunch and not get bored of it…because it IS tangerine, not orange and the rooibos isn’t that woodsy weirdo taste i don’t like in a rooibos :) thanks missb! (84!)

Final count: 161

OMGsrsly

Pfft. 162. I’m almost at 300, and I am drinking 3+ Sil-sized mugs per day. Slosh, slosh, slosh.

Courtney

I should really count all the samples I have around here. Though it won’t be near to 162 (I hope), but definitely not 300 haha!

drank Toffee Chocolate Hazelnut by Utopia Tea
4644 tasting notes

dexter sent me this one in the quest to explode my cupboard a little lol I believe this one was on my wishlist, or if it wasn’t, would have been something i was interested in trying. However, upon brewing this up, the chocolate taste makes me not so very happy. There’s something ‘off’ about this one that makes me not want to finish the cup, above and beyond, the filmy weird things happening in my tea. I can see the potential in this one but the chocolate taste here just isn’t for me. BUT as always, love knocking things off my list of “all the teas!”

Dexter

Shrug – win some lose some – dump it and move on. :))

Sil

drink it…and move on :P

Amariel

drank Golden Monkey Black Tea by Teavivre
4644 tasting notes

oh my poor cupboard. I tried to make it go on a diet and now it’s fighting back…. 125 was almost in my grasp…and this it was pulled away. So i’m giving up for April…but in May, i’ll be back with a vengenance lol for now, the sample sipdowns continue! this is neither, but it is one of my oldest teas and a delicious, delicious friday tea!

Dexter

Mmmmmmmmmmmm I was drinking this at work today – it’s a really good one. :))
(I don’t think it’s your cupboards fault that it is exploding…..)

Sil

yes! it’s not MY fault! i’m doing wht i can….drinking stuff..

Dexter

LOL maybe it’s partly MY fault – and all the other tea buddies that send you stuff…

Sil

Terri HarpLady

drank Caramel by TeaGschwendner
4644 tasting notes

Since the decaf caramel cream was what inspired me to buy both “cream” and carame" from tea G, i decided it was time that i put the two together. so. good. creamy and caramel and delicious and MINE!

Marzipan

Oh nice, I needed some new decaf ideas!

Sil

this particular one isn’t decaf but TeaG does a cremecaramel that IS decaf…and if it’s half as tasty as the two regular ones..it’s worth it!

mmmmm morning tea was delicious and bold and exactly what i needed. Longest week ever coming up so i needed something to get me through the day.

this tea needs another review from me. This will not be a good one. Long story short? Norbu teas make me happy. Happy in the same vein as yezi teas and a few others. I love nofarS for introducing me to these teas via terri. now to go have ice cream for lunch and dinner.

Dinosara

I had this one yesterday too, but didn’t get around to writing a note for it. I will definitely need to write a real one because it was quite good.

Sil

it was. I think i may need to try all the others this weekend that i picked up from norbu.

drank Superstar by RiverTea
4644 tasting notes

dexter sent me this one off my wishlist and i proooobably should have cold brewed it. but i was really excited to have more non caffeine teas in my house..plus i totally read the label as SUPER STAN! and i was like hmmm let’s go see what makes him super. this is a nice enough tea, but there is less flavour POP than i want there to be. I’m getting more of the honeybush than i want, though the flavouring that is coming through is quite nice. I think this is probably one of those cold brew teas…nice, but better cold :) thanks dex!

Final Count: 150 (2 more packages inbound + 4 purchased teas…)

Isn’t it funny how, once you get a name in your head, correctly or incorrectly, it just stays that way? :)

Sil

yar!

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.
