Dropping the rating of this one a little. This has a bit of bitterness in the background that i don’t find terribly appealing. it’s not a bad cup, but this strikes me as more of a milk and sugar cup of tea versus royal blend that i can drink straight – my preferred way of drinking tea.

Yeah, I was not super impressed with this one. It’s ok, but it’s not like that other Queen tea that’s out there. :D

yep like this one better than queen anne. This one is a smoother brew that’s not SUPER bold, but it’s got enough of a kick this morning for me to be really enjoying it.

i found a sample of this from courtney this morning so it’s back in my cupboard for at least another cup haha. I picked this, mostly so i’d have a little sipdown when i get back. I’m sneaky like that mwahahahhaa

drank Yunnan Aged Qizi Pu-erh Tea by Yezi Tea

Ok…incoming crappy tasting notes as i have spent the morning trying to finish work…go go double time and a half on this holiday, so that i can then PACK lol

I picked this one first thing in the morning for both a sipdown and to try and clear my head with a little puerh. I have to say, this is such a great unassuming puerh from yezi. It’s not earthy..but it is mellow and manly? there’s somethnig about this one that i really enjoy – moreso than the other recent puerh i had from yezi. i’ll likely pick up more of this for an average every day sort of puerh

I’m thinking I should go to traveling Tea & get a sample of everything she has, & send them ALL to you! HAHAHAHAHA! I was gonna do that with trail lodge teas too, but she doesn’t have sample sizes anymore.

TTC and Yezi – teas tha ti have quite a bit of, but i’ve been putting off getting in to while i finished up some of my other teas. But now it’s time to start getting back in to them along with my norbu teas heh. I am still loving this one a bunch. I’m really glad that Tastybrew introduced me to Yezi and that they seem to be sticking around!

another from this morning – i am trying to drink this and the royal blend in order to make sure i balance out finishing them. I think i like royal blend just a teeeeny bit more than this, but i’d have to drink them side by side again to make sure as it’s been too long (yes a day) since i had the royal blend lol

Terri HarpLady

I can’t remember if I finished those off or not. I’m thinking I like the Royal blend best, but can’t remember for sure.

another tea from way earlier today…..i’ve been trying to drink this one so that i don’t finish off my LB as quickly. same with me vanilla citrus spice…though it’s not working all that well as everything is just going away! I do love this a bunch, though i’m thinking i might be able to get away with just doing LB + cacao and being ok with missing the toasty rice part of the brew…mostly because the addition of the oolong in this just annoys me lol

Terri HarpLady

Were you able to get an order in for more LB? I noticed they already sold all of it AGAIN!

Sil

Negative…but I stil have some left….preorders are in May? I think…so that’s not as far off

Bio

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.
