yum! terri sent me more of this and i have to say 2013 was just a good year for tea harvest…at least in my little corner of “black” tea world lol. I don’t love the 2014 harvests as much so here’s hoping that 2013 will be a good year. still enjoying this one a lot! thanks terri!

drank Big Tree Red by White 2 Tea
6485 tasting notes

terri sent this one my way – i haven’t had any opportunity to try white2tea so i was happy to see this. I treated this like i do most puerh and brewed it gonfu style this morning since that’s what’s recommended on the website. I’m still working on it, though i can say that this is a lighter tea but not without flavour. i’m still waking up so i’ll try to write more later. but this is a win.

Another from the magic box. I had some less than stellar experiences with some of the tea emporium’s teas so i haven’t been back in a while, but this tea called out to me to try even if only because i miss my walter bishop tea :( this tea smells divine! in fact a lot like WB… brewed the rooibos is decent, not that woodsy srt of rooibos that ruins delicious teas. It’s got a very nice strawberry flavour to it, though i’m not sure i’d call this one “shortCAKE.” it’s good though…very tasty and would probably be delicious as a latte!

Final Count: 161 (plus the travelling tea box)

tea from terri! this one smells a LOT of the hojicha. However, once brewed, i can see why someone might call this coffee….it’s not really like coffee but it’s like the memory of coffee as it blends with the cacao..if that makes sense. Interesting to try, that’s for sure! thanks terri!

Sil

it is… i would never have put those two things together but it works heh

I’ve enjoyed a couple of the blends from Traveling Tea (especially our beloved pumpkin ginger!).

drank On Va Se Revoir by THE O DOR
6485 tasting notes

I’m with MissB on this one…looks like an oolong. I figured today was the day to try this one since i’ve had all sorts of things i wouldn’t normally drink today. This one is a green/mint/blergamot blend….

brewed, this is much more mint than anything…but you can tell the blergfactor is there. mostly though…not something i would drink again. I appreciate the share though MissB!! it’s a lot of fun getting to try these teas out.

OMGsrsly

Do not want. (Mint and bergamot? What?!)

Sil

i’ll try most things…. hahaha but SB might like it

OMGsrsly

Yeah, I’m not into trying that one.

Roswell Strange

What a weird flavour combo…

CrowKettle

Green, minty-citrus perfume? Interesting..

OMGsrsly

SB and CrowKettle might like it, apparently… :D

drank Dark Rose Tea by TeaSource

this one came my way stephanie via terri. I was a little hesitant about drinking this one. Flowers and i don’t really get along….esp not rose. That being said, once this one is brewed, it’s much more tea than rose. Still though, not something i really need in my life, though i’m always happy to try out random teas haha :) thanks ladies!!

drank Creamy Lemon Drop by My Tea Brew

this is really nice! Another one i wouldn’t have necessarily bought for myself but i’m glad i tried it out. I’d pick this one up for those times when i wanted a lemon tea…because this is CREAMY lemon…no false advertising here! the creaminess takes away from the intensity of the lemon and makes this more of a candy like tea. Not overly sweet, though i suppose you could add sweetner if you wanted to. I like this AND my other half, who is sick had some too and enjoyed it!

leaf in hot water

creamy lemon sounds so good!

Another from the travelling tea box. The nice thing about travelling tea boxes is that it lets you try things you wouldn’t necessarily buy for yourself. This is a pretty decent green tea. Sadly since it’s not really something i drink a lot, i couldn’t tell you how it stacks up…but i enjoyed it a bunch! :)

yes i know…blergamot. freely chosen by yours truly. this doesn’t much taste like an earl grey to me. it’s there…if i focus on it, but for the most part this tastes more like a black breakfast like tea. it might be an age thing or the result of travelling around in the box, but this is nicely subdued and overall a really pleasant cup. there’s a bit of malt there and the brew is smooth. nice!

I knew it. Hell has frozen over! hahaha!

Sil

well yes…hence the weather everywhere! :)

ick. i didn’t realise this had coconut in it. Not that i mind coconut, but i find in a lot of blends it goes rancid too quickly for me. Something about the coconut in this one just made this a big ’ol cup of NO for me. oh well, at least i tried it!

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.
