another great cup of tea this morning while i clean up the kitchen, do a little work and get it ready for my other half to then wake up and cook me breakfast! lol this is pretty much par for course when we have a day off together on the weekend as i’m a morning person and he’s a night owl. So i get up, prepare the kitchen, make coffee and bring it to him in bed…then he gets up and makes my delicious breakfast to go with said coffee :) it’s perfect. Today we’ll be doing that and then i suspect it’ll be an extended bike ride down to high park to check out the cherry blossoms for fun :)

Have fun!

cold brewed the last of this to see how that worked out and it’s slightly more tasty than the hot brew in my opinion. Still not one i feel the need to have again but i enjoyed it while i had it.

Preparation
Iced 8 min or more

I have to admit I’m not really into their black teas. Aside from Cookie, it’s mostly meh for me. Then again, OMG COOKIE.

Sil

agreed – i prefer their not black teas as well :)

Anna

Either way, you have rhubarb bref now.

drank Organic Japanese Puerh by Butiki Teas

Totally forgot to log this last night. I had some with dinner and it was fantastic. That perfect contrast to the amazing steak my other half made with a wine sauce and roasted potatoes and beans. We opted for bike ride Monday instead of Sunday given the holiday so yesterday was liquor store and food store lol so that today we can go for a long ride and enjoy 4-6 hours of outdoors….and have lunch while doing it! Anyway this tea? Love it…. More to write later but I’m glad I picked up a little more again.

TheTeaFairy

Sounds great, enjoy the day ;-) I had my outdoors moment yesterday so today is lounging tea day!

Sil

soooo tired…. lol 45km today

Another one from tonight… i give up on this blend. I know it has blergamot in it, but to be honest, i can’t even taste it. It’s mostly just sticks to me…there is no vanilla, no orange just woodsy rooibos flavour. I’m passing this on to terri to see if she can get more out of it…just in case. Besides, she too must try all the teas! lol

Final Count: 131

Another tasty cup of this tonight. It’s not something i drink all the time, but it’s something that i always really enjoy when i DO drink it, if that makes sense. I’m sure it would take me forever to go through a 4oz tin on my own, but i’m happy that keychange was able to send me some to last me for a bit :)

drank French Vanilla Assam by 52teas

I had the last of this tonight to see how I felt about it, now that it had had a chance to sit for a bit. Turns out, this isn’t half bad, but given the lack of consistency from frank in terms of reblends, i’m not likely to ever order it myself. thanks for sharing jump62359!

Man… i’m a little sad….finished up the rest of this today but i’d really like more. I can see enjoying this throughout summer as that delicious cold brew with excitement at the end of it haha. I’ll have to see about reordering some :)

drank Blackberry Lime Guayusa by Butiki Teas
4942 tasting notes

I picked this one up, knowing that I probably wouldn’t like it, but i always try things anyway. As it turns out, i was right… i am not a fan of Guaysa….it just seems to overpower any sort of flavouring that is added to it and turn every cup of tea into something i don’t like. So it’s not that this is a bad tea…it smells delicious, and i do get both lime and blackberry out of the dry aroma…but steeped..it’s just guayusa to me. at least that means i can give cavo a little more of our shared order and send some off to Roswell Strange to try out!

VariaTEA

Blackberry lime sounded good but I also had reservations about the guayusa. Glad to see I probably made the right choice by passing on this blend.

Sil

yeah no more Guayusa for me… i didn’t mind it in the cider one stacy had..but soon the flavour overwhelmed and i became less enthused. Now they all taste the same to me…

VariaTEA

I didn’t mind it so much in the cider either but even that I passed along because I just preferred others.

Amariel

It does sound interesting though.

Stephanie

Glad you tried it though :) I really like it but Guayusa flavor appeals to me!

Sil

i’ll try nearly everything once haha

Roswell Strange

I’m excited to try it! :) I need more early morning work teas :P

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.
