drank Spumoni Green Tea by A Quarter to Tea

Much better this time now that i didn’t steep it for too long. Spumoni is still not one of my favourite flavours, so this isn’t a tea for me in terms of keeping it in my cupboard, but i DO find this to be a pretty good capture of spumoni. If that was what you were looking for, i’d for sure recommend this tea :) thanks dexter!

i don’t love green teas…at least not enough to have more than a sample size in my cupboard. I just don’t reach for them often enough for me to get through them when they’re fresh. Funnily enough i seem to have a couple in my cupboard now,including this one that is very much more than a sample size. i’d had sample of it before and loved it, so i ended up buying more. thankfully, i still enjoy this tea though i’ll have to share with friends so that it gets enjoyed when it’s fresh.

grassy, seaweed..smooth…i feel like this one could be blended really nicely with some flavours for a spectactular green tea blend.

Another tasty green. I think i prefer the bellocq one though this one isn’t too bad. I for sure enjoy the autumn version better than spring. there’s a harshness to the tail end of this that i’m less a fan of but not enough for it to turn my opinion of this tea.

Still enjoying this tea, though it’s not quite french or american breakfast. More citrusy but still a good tea. And now…off to the samples! haha

drank Yu Lu Yan Cha Black by Verdant Tea

Finished the day yesterday at 162 teas but that’s about 100 away from my goal this year haha. There’s no way i’ll get down to my goal. but i’m not really complaining since that’s largely due to my paris trip this year that was unplanned and where i went overboard. So i figure i’ve got a week to try and get through the samples that omgsrsly and dexter sent me and see where i end up :) started out with this one to wake me up before beginning my sample journey :) still delicious and malty.

drank Lovely by Liquid Proust Teas

Another sample from Dexter. I must say this one fell flat for me. I followed the steeping parameters but it ended up tasting a whole lot like a random black tea. No floral notes for me really, and maybe just a hint of almond? maybe? Ever so thankful for the taste but this one just isn’t up my alley.

Sample from dexter that i enjoyed today. I have to say this was pretty much pumpkin spice – in a similar vein to stacy’s pumpkin cheesecake. that is to say, i didn’t much get chocolate either, and i wasn’t blown away by this one. it wasn’t a bad cup of tea, but i’m glad to have had the chance to try it before i picked up a larger quantity myself. thanks for the share dexter!

Another one that i pulled out this morning and thoroughly enjoyed. Something to be said about how this one takes me back to morning with mom at the UofA reference library. all those wonderful dusty books, the quiet, the learning…the time with mom. heavenly.

Love that little library snippet. Wish I were there—-but only if I can bring my blankie today!

Sil

all blankies welcome!

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.
