hot brew, drunk cold and i am good with this. I really should have tried this as a cold brew again? but i didn’t think about it. tasty enough to possibly warrant getting a bit more

Dexter

This is ok cold steeped, but IMHO It’s better hot steeped and allowed to cool :)

Sil

good to know.

drank Shirley Temple by DAVIDsTEA

i am actually enjoying this one tonight. it’s stupid humid today and this is a good balance or sour and refreshing for me. It’s not too hibby like..just an interesting blend of cherry/grenadine sort of flavouring. is it totally shirley temple like? no, but it’s a decent herbal/fruit blend from David’s.

How long do you steep this one for? My cup this morning smells like icky hibby water lol :(

Sil

so this one was accidentally steeped for like a day lol

drank Zhu Rong Yunnan Black by Verdant Tea

this + campfire blend = much better than straight zhu rong

CHAroma

I have almost 4 oz. for sale if you want more of it!

Sil

do not want more of zhu rong! struggling to finish this harvest off, hence the blending with campfire blend because it’s not the same tea it was in 2013.

CHAroma

Yeah, that’s my problem with it too. Too smoky. :(

drank Assam by Joseph Wesley Black Tea

I thought i’d try this one out today. Monday morning and i wanted something i was fairly certain i’d appreciate. Turns out, i was right. This is a bolder assam, not very malty – more on the sweet side. No bitterness, just a relatively smooth cup. Better review of this one when i can have it in a mug instead of my travel mug :)

drank Electric Lemonade by DAVIDsTEA
6407 tasting notes

let me begin by saying that i pretty much hate mate. I thought i’d try this though because i Do like lemonade. I tried this one as a cold brew and it’s not half bad. I’m not sure if the long brewing process helped smooth out the mate or what, but this was highly unexpected and one of the reasons i still try things i don’t like – both in tea and in “food.” it’s not really lemony to me – mostly strawberry like and something i can’t place. But as a cold brew with a little sweetner, not half bad.

I didn’t get much strawberry out of this, but I was surprised by how much I liked it. Not a big mate person.

Sil

yep. mate for mate haters lol

i am enjoying this offering from dragon tea house. Ir’s not as rich as some of the other versions that i’ve tried but it’s a decent cup and one that i’ll enjoy finishing up.

i tried this one again as a hot brew and it was really tasty – especially since i drank most of it after it had cooled down to room temp. heh. A really nice creamy strawberry rhubarb cup of tea for the summer.

Kristal

Something I’ll need to purchase once I use up some more teas :)

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.
