Finished off last night with a cup of this tea because i haven’t had it in forever. It was exactly as i wanted it to be, deliciously creamy orange chocolate. I adore this tea.

sad sipdown. Picked out this one to finish up this weekend because the idiots working on the balconies in our complex decided to start stupidly early on a saturday morning. So i needed something delicious and wonderful. Had multiple steeps of this one while trying to get up and ready for the day. stupid people.

First tea from this morning – decided that I’m going to try and get 5 sipdowns in this weekend even though that will be quite the challenge. I really enjoy this one but i always seem to forget that i love it. Maybe that says something about the tea? lol or me.

Still love this tea. i think it’s because it tastes good hot, cold and cold brewed and lets me pretend the weather is just a little warmer out than it is these days :)

this was a new tea that i tried yesterday. i need to try it again in a normal mug instead of the travel mug but this one wasn’t half bad. decent malty sort of medium tea.

this was one from yesterday and it was as usual, quite nice. Today i’m hoping for a fairly quiet day, though we are off to meet breeders so we can possibly get on the waitlist for a puppy next year. eep!

Shae

Ooh, what kind of puppy?

Sil

golden retriever. :)

TeaExplorer

Bet it won’t be a puppy for long :)

Sil

i call all golden’s puppies…so to me it’ll always be a puppy even when it’s 10 yrs old haha

TeaExplorer

Oh yeah, I get that now. One of our cats is now topping 23 pounds, but I still call it “little one”.

drank Root Beer Float (organic) by DAVIDsTEA

Finished this one off as a latte tonight. Still delicious but i’m done with it. I’d maybe pick some up again in a year or so if it comes back, but for now i’m satisfied with being done with it :) Creamy rootbeer float, latte style.

Final Count: 110

drank Vanilla and Pear by Ariel Tea

getting much more pear and vanilla this time around, but i’m also getting a taste that reminds me of the memory of black licorice? sadly the ingredients just say natural flavours so no idea what they put in here. It’s a suble pear..not a sweet juicy one, and the vanilla is nice…but the taste is distracting.

this one comes from omgsrsly as well. I figured since i was doing a few lower temp teas, i might as well toss this one in to the mix. I’m not sure how i feel about this one in the grand scheme of things. It reminds me a little bit of white night, but doesn’t seem as flavourful or sweet. I’ll have to play with this one a little more to see if i can get it to behave for me!

TeaBrat

I liked this one but I got sick of it ;(

Sil

not sure yet myself…but i’ve got lots to play with thanks to omg

You can get it so it’s like a white but with (nice) sourness. Ive ended up pinching it out like my whites so not sure of the amount… Leave it to cool a bit and it tastes better. I do mine at 80-90c 3mins then leave it till its not burning

Sil

sounds like a plan for next time. thanks!

So i laughed a lot when i found this one from omgsrsly in my bag of goodies. Both her and dexter couldn’t drink this one so they sent it along to me. I of course, have saved some so that i can send it along to my tea sister for fun! To be fair, this one doesn’t hit quite the wrong note with me as it did omg and dex. To me, this smelled like carrots that are just starting to go bad. Not sure why it was specifically carrots, but that was my view. This is a really….weird tasting puerh. I haven’t tasted anything like this one before, but i also didn’t hate it straight up. it was just weird.

That brings to mind that aged black tea from TTC, which reminded me of carrots & beets that had been left in the root cellar a little too long.

Sil

hahaha

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.
