courtney is my favourite tea person this week…though i love you all a ton. She sent me a surprise package of LB and cacao that i mixed this morning much to my delight and had the best damn tea day ever. On the downside, i REALLY need to place and order with HI for this stuff but their customer service is annoying AND until i have the keys to the new place, i don’t want to order anything just in case things fall through. this though? + LB. best.damn.time. ever.

caile

I wonder what if cacao nibs would be the same…

Sil

i actually bought some of those… intending to check…and uh forgot about them until you said that…maybe i’ll try tomorrow…

caile

Ooh, try them! I haven’t bought any yet but they are on my shopping list and I was hoping they would be good with the LB. If not, then we can just eat them up as a snack I imagine.

Courtney

I have cacao nibs myself, that I occasionally add to resteeps of straight LB. Yum.

OMGsrsly

Try them, Sil! I really like the ones I got in coffee. Yes, I’ve been drinking coffee almost every morning. Still haven’t tried them with tea, but I’m going to!

drank Flowery Pineapple Oolong by Butiki Teas
4871 tasting notes

i REALLY wanted something fruity and tasty this morning in addition to my usual straight blacks, so i pulled this one out. It was the perfect choice! I’m seriously glad that i only have one more day to get through this week, even if my weekend won’t be particularly relaxing lol. This tea? pineapple deliciousness….i’m trying to decide if i want to hold on to the last of this until the lupicia order gets here (so i can compare this one and theirs) or just drink it all up and be damned!

boychik

I vote to hold on. Im for tasting side by side. Common, you got plenty to choose from.

Sil

hahahaha ok ok! i’ll try!

Stephanie

Yeah I would like to hear a comparison :)

OMGsrsly

The Lupicia one is quite different. You’ll be able to tell probably before the first sip. :)

Sil

I’ve had both before….I just don’t remember them clearly enough :)

OMGsrsly

I really prefer the Butiki or even DavidsTea ones. If you look at the Lupicia description, a HUGE clue in the difference is right there.

But I have some of the Lupicia so maybe I’ll finish that this morning. And I’ll use boiling water. :D

i am kind of fried. Things are both going supremely well at work, and at the same time, the crap just keeps getting higher and higher and i can’t seem to dig myself out of things. Finally got a little recognition for the work i’m doing, and then by the afternoon i was drowning again in things. Soooo while i’m still working on my sipdowns and the like, i’m also trying to make sure i have plenty of delicious teas at work to get me through the days. Today i remembered to add a small splash of maple syrup to this one for a tasty first tea today :)

I feel your pain with the work stuff. I’m in a similar situation.

Final Count: 127

I LOVE Crabbies original ginger beer.I have not tried the spiced orange but it is on my list (my liquor store list, that is).

jump62359

Dude. I was going to drink this tea as well! But I decided for a different peppermint tea tonight :)

Sil

Haha jump
Lala- i haven’t tried original….rwspberry is good but a little more sweet…the orange one has a nice kick to it

mj

I enjoy beer recommendations with tasting notes, although this one doesn’t seem to be available near me

drank Orzo - Caramel & Honey by Lupicia
4871 tasting notes

mmmmmmm so good. Bumping the rating up a little because this was delicious tonight….just the right blend of dark, coffee-like tea. I adore how dark and comforting this one is. for sure one that will continue to rotate in and out of my cupboard when the mood strike!

jump62359

Oohh I think I might actually make a cup of this tonight!

Sil

i really like it…just makes me feel like i almost have a cup of coffee in front of me..only it’s tastier…

drank Nine by Custom-Adagio Teas, Cara McGee
4871 tasting notes

also a sipdown tonight while i tryied to pick out pain colors for our new apartment…so far we’re thinking of orange living room, yellow kitchen and green bedroom…. of course that leaves the hall, two other bedrooms and the bathroom but hey, baby steps. This doesn’t feel very “nine-like” to me, but that’s ok. As with donna noble, a nice tea, pleasant enough to drink but i’m not sad to see it go…i was much more sad to see 9 go lol (and 10 and 11….)

Virginia

Lol pain colors xD

Sil

i KEEP doing that… lol

Virginia

You shouldn’t worry about it. What IS worrying is that I thought “OooOoooOOOoh I wonder what a pain color is!” before I kept reading _

mj

Also, i was not sad to see Donna Noble go. I was not a fan of her as a companion

Sil

I liked Donna for her own reasons….and I really liked she wasn’t in love with the doctor…..and doctor Donna might be one of my favourite scenes…..but I didn’t love her the way I’ve loved others heh

mj

I also liked that she wasn’t in love with the doctor and I liked her grandfather a lot. I just found her irritating pretty much all of the time. Then she was followed by Amy Pond who is my absolute favorite, so in comparison I liked her even less.

sipdown! another tea i was happy to try out, but like most adagio blacks, won’t hit my must haves ever. this time around i got a little more cinnamon and orange, though mostly it was the base + cinnamon. not a bad cup, and i’m happy to have the tins and have explored the teas!

Courtney

Sil

Courtney

Bizarre.

jump62359

App logged because my internet hates me right now. It’s enough to say that since I pulled this one out for a swap last night, I wanted it this morning. It was just the right out of sweet for me today.

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.
