I started the morning off with this one and am thus far, not in love. I don’t hate it, but it’s nothing to write home about. there’s a bit of a smoky, sweetness to this and the after taste on my tongue is weird lol

Send it to mrmo for some proper storage..

Another from *Anlina that i tried yesterday and will likely pick up again today just to finish it off. This was an interesting one – different than a lot of the puerhs i’ve had from verdant and interesting in it’s tastes. woody a little..with a taste that is almost spice like… I’ll see how other steeps go today.

Anlina sent this one my way as well and i am impressed! This is a great offering from the Finest brew and one i’d like to pick up more of. Sweet potatoes, a little mal, very smooth brew. MMMM this was really nice! thanks Anlina!

Another from Anlina that i tried yesterday. Funnily enough, i much prefer their secret garden tea to this one, even though the two seem like they should be similar. This one, while berry and vanilla like – has a bitterness to it and the tastes don’t blend together nearly as well as the other offering Anlina sent me to try. Given the choice, i’d go for the other tea :) Good to try though because this would have been one i’d have picked up to try!

drank Crimson Horizon by Butiki Teas

I tried this one yesterday, mostly to decide whether or not i should send this off to a tea friend who would prefer it. I’m still torn and it’ll take a few cups to really decide BUT if there are folks out there who ADORE this, they should speak up, as i may be willing to send it out. This is a really strong tea from stacy. if you can manage to steep it for about a minute it’s not too much…1.5 and it gets close to needing milk and sugar lol

OMGsrsly

ADORE. I’m having praline horizon this morning. 3 minutes, with milk. :P

Sil

OMGsrsly

delicious tea from yesterday! I didn’t get much chance to log a lot of the teas i had because we met up with friends in the evening since we haven’t seen them in ages. This was as expected a tasty cup in the morning. I really do like yezi’s offerings :)

Another cup from last night and a good balance to the kaphaa. I won’t restock this one but i’m happy enough with the 50g i picked up for a limey drink when i want that sort of citrus in my life haha

mmmm i pulled this one out again last night – haven’t had it in a while. Still loving the spiciness of this one with a splash of honey. 2 min steep still because otherwise it’s too damn spicy for me! :)

drank Jin Jun Mei by The Finest Brew

As some of you might know, jin jun mei’s fall in to 2 categories for me – yes and no. lol They’re very hit and miss for me, but i continue to try various ones to see if there is a perfect one for me. This one, from Anlina falls on the “yes” side. this was a nice cup of tea yesterday – smooth and slightly smoky with a little sweetness on the side, sort of like sweet potatoes. All in all, a nice cup! thanks so much Anlina!

Fjellrev

That’s a solid dichotomy. :)

thank you Anlina for sharing this one with me. I grabbed this one to try yesterday and hadn’t looked at what it was supposed to be. What resulted was a really nice, vanilla berry tea – leaning towards strawberry with just a sense or cream. It was delicious and a great first introduction to this company!

Cavocorax

Oooob! You can’t go wrong with slightly creamy strawberry.

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.
