tea from this morning and today, this tea was SPOT on….another i may need to toss on the side of NOT travel mug to finish drinking. Also means that maybe i need to really clean out the travel mugs and make sure they’re good to go again. this tea + waffles = happy times!

drank Follow Me Tea by TWG Tea Company

another from missB this one has pineapple in it…and as result, was a much tastier option for me versus paris singapore but still just wasn’t cutting it for me. LIkely the result of the “green” of the tea. I’m fairly particular about my green teas…most are not up my alley. Still though, for people who like green teas, this is a nice one.

Final Count yesterday: 69

Suziqzer

I too am picky about greens!

Cavocorax

69 is pretty amazing! I’m at 115. I’m hoping to hit 100 before I meet up with you…

Trying to catch up on ym tea drinking so that i can get my new teas in to my cupboard. I had this one a few days ago – it’s another from missB. Sadly, cherry for me either works or it doesn’t and this falls in to the “doesn’t” category. I’m ok though…more tea for everyone else to have! haha

dragondrool

I’m not keen on cherry in tea. I’ve tried a couple. Strawberry is where it’s at for me, berry-wise.

Sil

there are a few cherry teas that i LOVE…. but most of them are herbals heh

Cameron B.

I really like Dammann’s cherry teas, but they taste more like dried cherry to me. :)

MissB

This was so disappointing for me when I had it too.

Another tea from MissB that i sadly ruined…so i’ll have to try again. it smells DIVINE! but it IS a white tea…and silly old me went and treated it like a black tea so it was an incredible smelling bitter brew :( the hints of what it would taste like though, lead me to believe that it will be a good one. we shall see!

Red Fennekin

I have a feeling that a friend of mine used to make me this tea when I went around to visit. If so, you’re deffo right about it seeming like a good one – it’s pretty delicious if you brew it “right”! :-)

Sil

that gives me hope lol

MissB

This was unbelievable when I had it in store.

drank Khongea Encore Assam by Butiki Teas

I had this one earlier today – it was a little bitter for me today, so maybe something is out of wack with my taste buds. All i can say is that my coworker sure as hell better not have given me bronchitis. lol

whatshesaid

I had it this afternoon too!

nope. not for me. I’ve had this a couple times now and it’s just not working for me. something about the green and the berries that creates a flavour that is completely disharmonious to my mouth. The rest of the ounce i purchase will be off to Terri so that she can give it a try!

Roswell Strange

Aww; that’s sad :(

Kittenna

My mom had some of this, which I tried about a week ago – it just tasted like Laoshan Green Genmaicha to me.

drank Wintergreen Woods by DAVIDsTEA

kittenna shared this one with me at my request since it sounds interesting. it’s not hahaha. For me this was sort of like someone took a little toothpaste, dilluted it in a lot of water and then added a weird after taste to it. I even tried steepeing it for longer and it was just a wimpy sort of brew. oh well. i don’t have to love everything and at least i’ve tried it! thanks kittenna!!

Bear With Me

Honestly, go out to the woods and pick your own. With less wintergreen and more of the other stuff, I think it would be soooo much more satisfying.

Sil

way too much effort! lol and i have sooo many other teas! pretty sure 3 boxes are showing up this weekend..ie being rescued from mail jail

Kittenna

Yeah, it was weird.

OMGsrsly

BWM, or anyone really, do you have an actual ingredients list for this tea? I hate that DT doesn’t put the ingredients in the description box.

OMGsrsly

(Because I might be willing to go out into the woods!)

Bear With Me

Wintergreen leaves
cedar greens
white pine needles
red sumac berries

OMGsrsly

Thank you! :D :D

drank Buttermilk Lemon by TeaGschwendner
6160 tasting notes

i feel bad every time i drink this. Why? Because i know there are those of you out there who love this. I really should just pass the rest of it off to someone who will love it. I don’t mind it…but i don’t love it…i’m not even sure i like it? but i don’t hate it…if that makes sense. lol

Stephanie

Its real good sweetened and iced!

Sil

no… not for me lol i’ve tried it as many ways as i can think of… don’t hate it but can’t make it work for me

Anlina

I would really love to try this, if you do decide to pass it along.

whatshesaid

I was underwhelmed by this.

Sil

anlina – send me a message so that i don’t forget. happy to pass some along

Bear With Me

Thanks for the motivation to make muffins ;)

Sil

BWM – you get the strangest ideas from me :)

Bear With Me

What else would buttermilk and lemon bring to mind? Lemon poppyseed muffins ftw. (I might be a weeeee bit manic which doesn’t help. Hehe)

OMGsrsly

Baking is better than some other options I can think of! Not that I’d be speaking from, uhh, experience or anything. Nope. Not me…

Kittenna

Ooh, I’d love to nab a single cup’s worth if I could :)

Sil

send me a message later kittenna so i don’t forget.. i’ll be going through them all when memily’s stuff gets here and it’s time for post office..

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.
