strong and bold and really nice..with a hint of astringency but not overly so. This was a cup from hours ago ‘cause holy crap it’s been busy…but the rest is off to a new home haha with, you guessed it, Cavo!

drank Rhubarb & Strawberry by Lupicia
4829 tasting notes

FInally got around to trying this one today – it’s been one of the teas hiding in my cupboard from my last mini lupicia order with Cavo from a few months back. This isn’t half bad, though i think i want to try cold brewing it. I generally enjoy lupicia’s strawberry flavouring, and in this blend there is a hint of that sour note that rhubarb brings to the table…it’s just not overpowering of crazy sour. I think the cold brew might help to smooth out the black base in this case, which i think is what is making me not ADORE this one.

I liked it too but not enough to reorder. ( your Ruby Pie is better ;-) )

this is NOT going in my cupboard…bad Cavocorax! who sent this to me, forcing me to drink this right away so as not to increase my cupboard.

I was curious about this one because it’s pretty popular right now and seems to be getting good reviews on the whole. I haven’t yet ordered from WP yet – well beyond my really small joint order with Cavo.

This tea is pretty tasty. I dunno if it’s rock your socks off sort of tea for me, but i’d pick it up again and rotate it in through my cupboard. It’s a chocolatey, malty, vanilla like tea…though there’s a note in there that makes me think of oolongs that made me less enthusiastic about the blend. I think it might? be the vanilla, though i can’t say for certain. On the whole though, a really nice cup of tea that started this insane day for me and set me on the right foot. Thanks Cavocorax!

Cavocorax

Well, if it’s your first order, I think you can get 15% off… Y’know, for when you’re ready.

Note to self. Read previous tasting notes if you haven’t had this in a while. Looks like i loved this in latte form, so maybe i’ll do that tomorrow. TOday though, as a tea this was pretty perfect. Just the right balance of coffee like chocolate, creamy tea. Overall, i’m glad i cracked in to this one early… esp since there are so many orders incoming lol

Final Count: 138 no change. Must get at least 3 in tomorrow to make up for it…ignoring of course the fact that 11-15 new teas will be added to my cupboard tomorrow. bah!

Tea Sipper

I love your note to read your note. :D

Sil

lol yeah…i’m losing my mind lately haha

Cavocorax

I’m a little nervous about the pile of teas I have piling up over there. I’m so not ready!

Sil

Haha I’m putting together your box and variateas box tonight…as well as splitting out things for whatshesaid and possibly 221….omgsrsly…..

Cavocorax

Hahah. Do these boxes have room for Lupicia teas? And more? How much can I stuff in it before I have to go get it?

Sil

it’s already moved from dr seuss to a bigger box…and now i have your address again so it could mysteriously show up at your house

Cavocorax

No no no – you can’t pay to ship it to me – that’s obscene! Only I’m allowed to throw money away on shipping! :D

Sil

Who said anything about shipping? I can take the bus.

OMGsrsly

Don’t you dare, Sil! I could throw some serious revenge your way. I do love some floral teas… ;)

Sil

hey you have a lonely tea here…waiting to fly to you… it has your name on it and everything… only one!

mmmmmm i rather like this one from Mandala. Not only are they really fun to watch brew as they turn into neat star like sort of tea bundles of yum, but they’re tasty and malty and just downright delicious!. I enjoyed this one quite a bit today since it’s been a while since i last had some :)

TheTeaFairy

“a tea bundle of yum”, love that!

Dexter

I have some of these – I really need to find some time to try them. Sil you make them sound wonderful…

Sil

They’re a really fun tea, and tasty!

tea from this morning! Sadly i was in back to back meetings all day and so 14 hours ago seems like a really long time from now. I opted for this one because i’m trying to get into all the devotea teas that terri sent me before she gets another box out my way haha. Add to that the incoming orders and i’m a little crazy! On the upside, my butiki order gets here tomorrow, we’re going to see the Lion King on friday (it’ll be my 5th? time) and saturday i’m going out with my friend and her little one for wedding dress shopping.

right..back to the tea. lol this was a bold tasty cup of KERPOW to wake me up this morning but that’s about all that i remember. better tasting notes to come i’m sure, since i have a bit more of this one to play with :)

TheTeaFairy

Happy times on your radar :-)

Robert Godden

Two Tigers is perfect pre-Lion King!

Sil

haha yeah…i’m super excited to see if again. I’ll be sneaking tea in with me i’m sure :)

This was a pretty tasty cup tonight as we worked out a group order from Lupicia. Not something I need to restock, but I am a fan. I appreciate charlottezero sending me some of this to try out.

Final Count: 138 (tooooooo slow!)

drank Pumpkin Milkshake 2.0 by Butiki Teas

Sipdown! Best cup ever of this, mostly because all the extra bits of flavouring are there haha. Not sure I need to restock this one because I really like pumpkin creme brûlée a lot, but I’ve enjoyed having this!

Mmmmmm this one is quite good! Terri suggested this one last night, so I picked it as one of he the morning teas today. For some reasoning I’m getting smokey notes, which no one else seems to have. That being said, it IS a bold, delicious cup and I’m happy that I’ve got more. Hahaha

Terri HarpLady

I think this has become my favorite Devotea tea. :)

Robert Godden

Great to hear that you liked and Terri, it has been noted!

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.
