gooodbye rose! it was nice while you were here, but i’m not sorry to see you leave since you are not nearly as delicious as i want you to be. :)

DeliriumsFrogs

JustJames

drank MojiTEA by Bluebird Tea Co.
4720 tasting notes

Another one from my hepatite swap with Sami Kelsh This one is rather tasty. I know mojito’s have mint in them, but i feel like this is the wrong mint for this tea. It makes me want the mint to not be in the tea lol.

Edit: work got in the way of me finishing this review… long story short, this is really tasty, but i want the mint to be less present, or be a different type of mine. I really like the citrusy flavour of this one quite a bit.

Sami Kelsh

To be fair, I prefer tea over mojitos, so I can’t even really compare if this lives up to its name in that respect :p

Sil

haha i can! :)

I participated in the Hepatite swap this past month and yesterday i received my tea from my swap buddy. I’m not sure whether i’m more excited about getting my teas, or the thought of my swap buddy getting my teas. Heh…not that i want to spoil anything, but those of you who have um gotten tea from me, know a little of what she’s in store for hahaha.

Sami Kelsh sent this one my way and that’s awesome because it was on my wishlist of things to try someday! Mostly because of her review haha. this is delicious…delicious and creamy and man i would pick this one up again! The vanilla is there but there is also a cookie like quality to this that is so very tasty. Thank you so much Sami!

OMGsrsly

I feel a little sorry for your swap buddy’s cupboard. Just a little. ;)

Sami Kelsh

Yay, cookie goodness! Oh, I hoped you’d like this one! So glad your teas arrived safely :3

drank Yi Fu Chun Black Tea by Yezi Tea
4720 tasting notes

mmmmmm dexter sent this my way. My other half did a sneaky thing and picked up my tea yesterday but didn’t give it to me until today – he left it on the table for me to find in the morning since he knew i was working from home today. Doctor appointment this morning so it’s easier to go there and come back home than go all the way downtown. This is another yummy tea from yezi! I am digging the sweetness that it in this cup along with a sort of malty finish. mostly though, it’s just good. like nearly every yezi tea i’ve tried. nom nom nom thanks dexter!

drank Black Pearl by Mandala Tea
4720 tasting notes

oh bother. It’s official. these are finally finished up, out of my cupboard, possibly never to be seen again. sad. but happy. but sad. Seriously though. Favourite pearls ever. there’s just something deliciously wonderful about how malty and rich and yummy they are. If garett ever finds some again, they will be insta-buy. even if they won’t be exactly the same.

edit: also drinking this so early in the morning means i can resteep it aaaallll day! oh happy day!

Sami Kelsh

Feelings! These sound so good! I am vicariously feeling your pain.

drank Peppermint Patty by Butiki Teas
4720 tasting notes

Last tea of he the evening had while catching up on some tv after working a bit tonight. There’s a story there but the short of it is….ppl who get paid more than me are inadequate at their job so now I am doing their job plus my own while also continuing to support my entire team….some day, this will pay out….dear god I hope so.

This tea? Best time ever tonight….

Final count: 132 (but there are inbound teas tomorrow…..eep!)

OMGsrsly

132? I dream of only 132 teas. ;)

VariaTEA

175! Oh how I miss the days when I was winning :P

Sil

haha i am aiming for 125 this month but i have 4 teas inbound + 3 more swaps with who knows how many

Sami Kelsh

BLERG WORK. I know that feeling. In my time I’ve seen folks hired who are plainly not suited to the job, and end up being promoted into a position where there isn’t any real work for them to screw up! SIGH.

drank Amortentia by Custom-Adagio Teas
4720 tasting notes

this was another tea from dexter that i wish i’d had time to focus on while it was hot. Sadly though, i ended up brewing this, and then it sat…getting cold for about 2 hours. That being said, it was lovely cold lol I just wish i’d had a chance to try it hot! This is for sure a coconut blueberry tea, and that adagio black base i dislike, didn’t come through which made me even happier! this was probably my favourite of the potions blends that dexter sent my way!

Dexter

I only sent you small samples – didn’t want to flood your cupboard. If you want another sample just let me know. :))

Sil

haha maybe…i still have your other teas to get through first!

drank Caramel by TeaGschwendner
4720 tasting notes

my flavoured tea for the day…my headaches seem to have finally stopped today so i really do think the past three days have been the result of the weather. which really sucks because i should NOT be susceptible that much. i am finally getting to try this one out on it’s own and man it is deeeeelicious! I need to have a cup of this alongside the caramel/toffee tea from Damman Freres as i think this one might actually win out for me. i know, i know! that’s how yummy this one is! :)

Cavocorax

I hope they’re gone for good!

drank Laoshan Black by Verdant Tea
4720 tasting notes

so torn. On one hand, this is one of the oldest of my teas and i need to drink it up. On the other hand.. it’s out of stock on verdant’s website which means if i DO finish it off…i’m out of luck until it comes back. decisions, decisions! oh man…what to do… for now, i still have a few cups before i have to stop drinking it or just go all in! :)

drank White Rhino by Butiki Teas
4720 tasting notes

farewell you delicious tea. We WILL meet again…soon! I had the last little bit of this today in an effort to get at least a couple sipdowns in for the past couple of days. I feel like i’ve taken weeks off from sipdowns and now it’s time to get back on the sipdown bandwagon – especially since i lose a week in April. I love this tea a whole lot! I really like that it’s not a black tea..but it is…but it’s not but it IS…but it’s really NOT… yep.

Courtney

I so wish we were there at the same time.

Sil

that would have been awesome… what day do you land? haha

Courtney

We’re driving hehe – but the 26th.

Sil

Bah. We get on a plan at 1:30pm that same day lol

Courtney

Well shoot. We usually leave ~3am to get there mid afternoon.

whatshesaid

Where ya’ll going? :)

Courtney

Vancouver! And area. :)

whatshesaid

Cool :) someday I will visit out west to see the mountains!

Sil

i hope so for your sake whatshesaid….so totally worth it. I miss them so much!

whatshesaid

It’s on the ol’ bucket list!
Sucks that it’s often more expensive to fly within Canada than to travel elsewhere though!

Sil

Amariel

Are you both coming to Vancouver?

Sil

Amariel

Are either of you coming to the big island?

Courtney

I hadn’t planned on it :( We never go to the island, but maybe we should start planning to hah.

Sil

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.
