i have been thoroughly enjoying this one from omgsrsly Nice to have this one back in my cupboard to remind me why i need to place another mandala order sooooooon! especially with new teas coming in the near future that are for those of us who love special dark. Not much to say on this one that hasn’t already been said. delicious. wonderful. yay for tea and tea friends!

whoa whoa whoa – “new teas coming in the near future that are for those of us who love special dark”??? What do you know that I don’t? Why am I not informed of these things?

Sil

haha i asked garett what lovers of special dark would think of his new tea on FB. he indicated that there are new teas coming that special dark lovers may appreciate. it won’t be SD..but here’s hoping its close to being as delicious

Dexter

this tea is all over the place. popcorn, apple bits, toffee, black tea, oolong lol… but it smells delicious. in the grand scheme of things, this isn’t bad but it’s nothing spectacular. The flavour comes across as an almost typical tofee flavoured tea. I’m not getting anything new from the popcorn, though there’s a hint of sweetness in the background of this one that makes the tea a little lighter than your usual black toffee tea. Not too shabby but not intensely amazing either :)

Nichole

You had me with popcorn and toffee!

drank étoile des neiges by George Cannon

pulled this one out today to try since it’s been a while. Was blown away by the orange smell of the dry leaf. Brewed it’s a creamy orange black tea – i suspect the vanilla is softening the orange flavour. It’s quite tasty and very much seems to me like something that should be had when there’s snow on the ground – a cool winter evening, where the stars have started to come out and there’s a fresh light snow falling.

Sil

i have lots for you to try some of this eventually hahaha

This is an interesting one. this comes to me from MissB and is tightly compacted. I let is sit for a while after a 10 sec steep. almost all the water was absorbed in to the cake. My first couple of steeps of this one, i was getting an almost menthol like taste…bordering on mint…but really faintly. it was a weird experience. the aroma of the tea however, was much more earthy/leathery like. Later steeps the tea was much more cedar and wood with almost an aftertaste of smoke but not strong.

this was an interesting tea and one i might consider purchasing in the future.

I’ve had multiple steeps of this one this morning, it’s the last of this and i wanted to enjoy it for as long as possible. i adore this blend..maybe someday, someone will figure out how to make something similar.

drank Assam by Joseph Wesley Black Tea

I pulled this one out today so that i could have it at home in a proper mug. That’s the way this tastes the best imo.

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.
