drank Berry Picking Delight by Tealux

Sample from Evol Ving ness

so tired…working late. long story short – this was a nice one. refreshing berry tea…bold flavour. I’d pick this one up again if i needed a berry/fruit herbal!

Final Count: 105 (yes i’m trying to get one in a day!)

Evol Ving Ness

Happy to hear that you enjoyed this one.

I seem to have gone on a berry trend in this particular swap packet. Somehow, I don’t think I realized that as I was organizing and packaging.

Sil

nothing wrong with that! :)

Evol Ving Ness

Oh good! I seem to be on a berry and/or smoky and/or milky oolong and/or mango thing these days.

Hope you’ll have some time to relax soon, Sil!

drank Strawberry Rhubarb Pie by Tealyra

Tried this one from Evol Ving Ness today and while it was a tasty cup, the flavours seemed a little muted. David’s tea – strawberry rhubarb parfait is more up my alley as i expect POP from strawberry rhubarb versus…oh hey..hi there… :) Still enjoyable but i want moar taste!

Final Count: 106

I look to you as the authority on strawberry rhubarb pie flavoured teas

pulled this one out today and added a splash of maple syrup since it’s smokey. a weird experiment since it didn’t have quite the same effect as say lapsang + maple. need to experiment more.

drank Rooibos Masala Chai by Chaiwala
8162 tasting notes

Couldn’t help myself…made another cup of this tonight. Love the caffeine free option even though it’s a little less OOOMPH-Y than the black tea base. I can’t order more of this until i get through some more of my samples….so i’d better hoard it a little :)

Final Count: 107

I bought this one too and the tea itself looks almost like it’s wet or something? Does yours look like that or that it’s coated in something? I made it into a latte and felt so sick afterwards…and I’m now wondering if it’s the tea …

Sil

That’s the honey if i remember correctly – ie. it should look/feel wet.

Sample from evol ving ness this is another revisit for me :) turns out this one has grown on me a little since i had it. (bumping the rating up a little) There;s a sweetness to this one with some notes in here – sort of fruity with a little bit of malt. I wouldn’t classify this as a malty assam though. just a nice cup – good for an afternoon sort of tea. thanks evol!

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.
