another tea from bear with me thanks again for the rooibos samples! this is the sort of rooibos that does NOT have that woodsy sort of taste, so yay for that! this doesn’t really taste like your usual pumpkin spice tea. instead its more like a creamy tea. I’m not really getting pumpkin pie from this, but it is a tasty tea heh.

tea from yesterday. Still really glad i was able to get 2oz of this. I’m not sure how i’m going to find another company that does flavoured teas as well as stacy. it’s sad. this tea though is great, and i love that this is still on the other base

oh bear with me you know how i’ll try anything lol. fancy this…a tea with two of my arch nemeses….the dreaded blergamot AND his nefarious evil twin – jasmine. I of course didn’t know it until the water hit the leaves…. and then they popped up! Admittedly though, it “almost” works in this tea. The blergamot is subdued a little by the jasmine and neither one is overpowering. I just don’t like the flavour combination that it has. thanks for letting me try this though BWM! wasn’t as bad as i would have thought it would be haha

Bergamot and Jamine definitely do not scream Canadian to me. Ha ha.

Sil

i thought it was a straight tea…until i added water heh

Bear With Me

Pretty sure that was the cheekiest one I sent you, so everything else should be pretty safe ;)

She chose a good smooth base which I think helped too. It’s not a combo I ever would have thought of, but it’s grown on me!

started out today with this tea since i’m trying to continue to be good about drinking old favourites. This tea has really become something i enjoy drinking as it’s gotten older. First time i had it, it was still a little….“fresh” :)

omgsrsly sent this one my way and i am a fan! Do i, as usual, wish it was a little more orangey and a little more vanilla-y, of course. But i really enjoyed the few cups of this one that i had. It’s not too sour and it’s got a really nice blend of flavours going on. It also tasted really nice hot and cold :)

another one from the past few days. I really like this one with a bit of honey and milk BUT i still stand by my hatred of the addition of goji berries. I pick them all out because i find they make the chai sweeter or something. Just not a fan.

Another tea from yesterday – i ended up spending some gaming time with the other half yesterday so i am behind! :) I really like whatever harvest this is that i picked up. i DO need to remember that i can generally pass on spring harvests as i just don’t love them as much as well. Great cup of delicious tea yesterday!

Stephanie

agreed about spring harvests…the exception for me is a few select fresh spring green teas.

mmmm i’ve had this one twice now – once regularly brewed and once as a latte and both times were delicious! I’m not sure if i like this one better or the other berry tea that omgsrsly also sent me from silk road i think it was? Overall this is just a great berry tea, that feels juicy, slightly sweet and really tasty! thanks for the share omg!

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.
