drank Yunnan Pearl by Red Blossom Tea Company

i’m back from vacation. While it was a great vacation…i got to drink NO tea because a) the water had a dirt like quality that i wasn’t loving and b, the kettle at the place we were staying at was just…NO.

so i’m happy to be back drinking tea… sadly i got carried away with catching up at work while drinking this one so i don’t have a lot to say yet. the colder it gets, the more chocolate notes poke through, but i for sure need to have this one again. Glad dexter was able to send enough for me to have a couple cups :)

Welcome back, Sil! I am not going to ask where you were because I have been away from steepster and out of the loop. I will read up and maybe all the mysteries will reveal themselves. And if not, then I will ask.

And also, no tea! oh, horrors.

No tea = no vacation :)

drank Falling Leaves by Fava Tea Co.

Sample from VariaTEA This one is way too sweet for me. WAY too sweet. For me, this doesn’t taste like straight maple syrup, it tastes like artificial maple flavour. It’s again, not a bad tea but i think it would have been better if i’d made it as a latte to cut through some of the sweetness. Still, glad to have tried it!

Another sample from VariaTEA. this one is a miss for me. It’s not a bad tasting tea, it’ s just not sure of what it wants to be. All i got from this one for the most part was “sweet”

VariaTEA

This is actually a good description of this tea tbh.

kittenna gave me a small sample of this one and it was pretty tasty. It’s not as intensely creamy orange as i’d like but it was really enjoyable.

another one back in my cupboard from variatea…still a lovely cup, though it feels like the flavouring is starting to go. Not the end of the world though because i love white rhino :)

drank Choco Blues by TeaTaxi
7970 tasting notes

Sample from VariaTEA This is a decent enough tea. I still think my other fav bluebrry tea tops this one, but i do like the blending of this one. I wouldn’t say that there’s a lot of chocolate in this though…it’s closer to a straight blueberry tea imo than a chocolate blueberry. But it’s tasty. thanks variatea!

drank Cranberry Glow by TeaTaxi
7970 tasting notes

sample from variatea this is more green tea like than the AU one i had. I don’t love this one, but that’s MY preferences, not the tea. I’m getting much more of a green tea vibe from this one which means i like it less just because of that. I DO like the pop of cranberry in this one – it’s got a tart, fruity taste. If you like green teas, this one is probably not half bad :)

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.
