i don’t get it. Lol. Pulled this one out today from omgsrsly to try. After a number of steeps and different temps and times, i just don’t get it. Tastes like not very much of anything to me. I’m hoping that maybe next time i pull this out i’ll be able to figure it out, though if i can’t…well there’s more for everyone else, since i know most folks have really loved this.

Love this – it’s like apricot honey.
IMHO – gong fu – boiling water – flash steeps.
If you tried that then maybe it’s just not for you…..

Sil

i’ve got more to play with :)

a friend picked this up, loved it for the caffeine rush then decided he didn’t like it after all so i ended up with it lol. I’ve had this before, but my tasting note was shit and i’m not sure why. I suspect my taste buds have changed because this is WAAAAY too earthy/licking a forest mud floor, for me. I ended up pouring out a few steepings, just to see if later steeps would cut it…nope. This is no longer a tea for me…just too….consistent in it’s flavour profile, which isn’t up my alley anymore to begin with? :)

Thought i’d start the day out with a puerh since otherwise i won’t make time for it. This gives me a chance to take a few moments to wake up, and settle my mind before another day of tearing apart the house. These came to me from christina and were on my wishlist to try, so thank you for that!

initial steepings of this are quite nice. Smooth, a little reminiscent of “special dark” but not quite…some sweetness here as well, richness to the taste. It’ll be interesting to see how this develops.

so annoyed that i didn’t notice this tea has chamomile in it. nothing irritates me more than when i use my finum with chamomile. the little bits get stuck and it takes me forever to clean, so i usually use my other infuser. oh well. lesson learned, pay attention!

this one smells mostly of chamomile when brewed – i did shake the bag up, so my teaspoons were balanced… (and yes, apparently i was temporarily chamomile blind when i was cooping ‘cause it didn’t register lol). Raspberry is there, but on the tail end of the sip. Certainly not enough for me to call this raspberry jam! if this came straigh tout of a jam jar, i’d be sad. Jam is INTENSE flavour, full of delicious goodness…this is…more like a chamomile, raspberry tea. oh well. enough to try it one more time. Maybe the second cup will be more jam like.

I was looking at and sniffing this today and thinking. I walked away.

Summer teas are going to be out soon, next week perhaps, and rumour has it that most of them are sweet as heck.

Sil

Luscious Watermelon (Herbal)
Pom Diggity (Black) – Black tea w. Pomegranate and hibby
Pura Vida (Green) – Pineapple and coconut
Carribbean Crush (Herbal)
Mango Fruit Punch

Not so much tempted by any of them, but I open myself up to be surprised

Sil

i smelled them in store, nothing tickles my fancy…pura vida would but it’s a green blend, so i’d rather pick up pina colada from chicago because it’s a fruit tea.

Evol Ving Ness

Pina Colada from G tea?

I stop by when I can for steeped samples, so something might surprise me enough to pick up a wee bit, but no sense of urgency. I was under the impression that more new ones are coming out next week, or perhaps I misunderstood.

Sil

pina colada from tea gschwedner…it’s better than the tealish version, but if i wasn’t going to chicago, i’d be picking some up from tealish. i think the summer teas are coming out soon? maybe after they get through mothers days stuff..no real clue. I only ever pick up 10g or so of the new teas from david’s. When i smelled the summer teas, none really spoke to me.

Evol Ving Ness

Thanks. And yeah.

Kristal

Hmm, Glad I didn’t order this blend then. I agree, Sil, ordering 10ish grams at a time from DAVIDs is the way to go with new blends of theirs.

farewell delicious tea. Treated myself to the last cup of this tonight. Going to miss this one as it hit the spot more than all those black mint chocolate teas out there ever did, and i LIKE black teas lol. Sad to see this one going, but man it’s a great cup tonight. I will thoroughly enjoy the last drop!

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.
