sorry omgsrsly not a fan of this one. It was like a clovey earl grey or something. The cardamom was hiding and it really did remind me of some sort of weird clovey blergamot concoction lol

Bear with me sent this one my way and i’m pretty sure his words were “you won’t like it” haha Funnily enough, i actually liked this one more than the cardamon black hat i also had. Not enough to hold on to it and be a greedy guts, but i did enjoy my cup with breakfast this morning :) thanks Bear with me!

Bear With Me

I am actually shocked yu enjoyed it since it is a floral tea! Glad to hear it! I will send the new Victoria tea next time. I think it will be more your thing. :)

Sil

I won’t be craving this one but it was a good cup!

drank Gold Blend Tea Bags by Barry's Tea

Another one from MIssB this is for sure a milk tea! lol without it, it’s quite strong, but i’ve had it a couple times now with either milk or honey and lemon and its quite nice for a bagged, no fuss tea :)

MissB

This is what everyone, and I mean everyone, drinks in Ireland. Any store, restaurant, cafe.. this is your standard tea. Definitely needs milk! Glad you’re enjoying it. :)

Sil

aye the rest is off with the girls to steal from and share… :)

gmathis

drank Royal BC Museum Tea by Silk Road

Apparently i’ve had this one before. This cup comes from omgsrsly and today i’m finding it a much lovelier cup than when i previously had it. The berries add just the right “something” to this blend taking it from a really nice black tea to a tasty fruit black blend. thanks madam! always nice to revisit teas!

drank Cinnamon Pear by 52teas
6146 tasting notes

Another from kittenna this is a cinnamon tea….not getting much pear though. I didn’t dislike this base as much as i usually do with frank’s teas…but it’s still not delivering on what it promises to be. This is really just a decent cinnamon tea, with a slightly “something” taste in the background that mutes the cinnamon a little. Still happy to try it and enjoyed the cup tonight…just not what i wanted it to be.

Final Count: 102

drank Tamarind Gui Fei by Butiki Teas
6146 tasting notes

Kittenna dropped this one off with me, but i feel like this is from omgsrsly’s bag. I had a couple steepings of this one tonight and i am a fan! Again, an oolong that i am a fan of. I like this a lot better than the tamarind pop whatever tea that stacy made, though i didn’t hate that one. :) Christmas evening tea! deeeelicious!

Kittenna

Yes – this is from OMGsrsly :) I merely stole some from her baggie and gave it to you since I though it would interest you.

I’m super glad that this was another tea that wasn’t for me given HI’s notoriously awful customer service. Kittenna share this one with me and while i DO like the flavour blending of this one, i cannot get past the tea base that HI uses. It’s like a lot of 52 tea black tea bases – just doesn’t add much to the tea and the undernotes in the tea just don’t work. Thanks so much for the share though Kittenna! always appreciate trying new teas!

Fjellrev

Yeah, their base leaves much to be desired.

Kittenna

I can handle the base in this one, but it could definitely be better. Love the flavouring though.

kittenna shared this one with me via the free samples this company was giving away. I’m pretty sure her words were “this one is…weird” lol I’m inclined to agree. while this might work for some, this one doesn’t work for me. The smell is all wrong for me – i didn’t brew it in the paper but it still has a bleachy, musty weird smell to me. Initial sips are a taste that also doesn’t jive with what i’m looking for in a tea.

I appreciate the share, and i’m glad some folks are enjoying this one, but it’s just not for me!

boychik

I have a sample and afraid to try

Sil

it’s not pour down the sink bad..but the couple sips were more than enough for me

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.
