I’ve enjoyed this one while i’ve had it, but after 100g i think i’m ready to relegate this to less desirable than the keemun i love from teavivre, but still a good tea that i would be willing to split if other friends wanted to share. lol sound good? :)

boychik

I had a cup of this tea too. I had better memories. It’s not working today:(

backlog! still enjoying this one though it’s not the ZOMG tea that it once was. I think i have almost figured out what sort of flavoured teas i tend to reach and have a handle on how much i need of them to get me through to when i want a flavour change, if that makes sense lol

drank Zheng Shan Xiao Zhong by Yezi Tea

another backlog from a few days ago. I’m still enjoying this one, so it’s a safe bet that i am still a fan of Yezi. Hopefully i’ll be able to share some love for them in august when i restock a few of my teas.

backlog from a couple days ago because folks…we’re back to grueling hell at work. will i be working this weekend? of course! even though we had a holdiday this week have i worked a full 40 hours already? YES! will the overtime make it worth it…..we’ll see lol

thank god i have my tea to keep me sane…mostly.

Kaylee

At least you’re getting paid overtime for it, though. :-)

Sil

true…especially good since we’re trying to save for wedding; baby; dog lol

Kaylee

In that order?

Sil

probably more like baby, wedding, dog for me and dog, wedding, baby for my other half lol

Kaylee

hmmm… not sure how you can compromise on that…
maybe have the baby at the wedding? it would certainly be memorable.

Cavocorax

Sil

cavo…that will happen regardless lol if i have to put up with a dog, it will be a puppy first lol

drank Loco Lime by RiverTea
5241 tasting notes

i am a fan of lime teas. I picked this one up hoping for a little competition with lime gelato from david’s or lime chiffon from della terra. Sadly, after cold brewing this for the day, it’s only a little limey and the bright pink brew is unsettling haha. It’s got a creamy ish sort of taste to it, and it’s not sour but it’s also pretty weak in the lime department. I’ll drink this and enjoy it, especially on hot summer days but this isn’t nearly as limey as it needs to be :)

I’ve been hoarding this one, which is silly because it’s not a limited edition, i can get it anytime and i love it. So i dug it out as a little reward today for finishing off my october teas, and because technically i should be working through my 100g of this anyway haha. Added a little maple syrup as i usually do and loved every last drop of it! yay for being back to work after working from home for 4 days lol

drank Je t'Aime by Nina's Paris
5241 tasting notes

I figured i should bust this out to have again since i bought it a while back and while i blew through the japon i bought, i hadn’t even had this one yet. Not my favourite of the nin’as teas but one that i do like. I wish i could get the full caramel/vanilla intensity that i get in Japon, but in this black base. Still, it’s a nice treat to have, though maybe not a reorder by the time i finish the package heh

drank Strawberry Cream by RiverTea
5241 tasting notes

better review to come of this at a later date but i wanted to try this hand in hand with taurus to see which i preferred. this one is clearly a fruit tea :) and is “close” to strawberry but the “cream” is for sure coming through. overall a really nice tea i can see drinking cold in the summer..which is good because that’s why i picked it up!

VariaTEA

Oooh this is one I wanted to try. Glad to see it was nice.

Terri HarpLady

AND it’s summer!

Sil

VariaTEA – when you come over you can steal some :)

VariaTEA

Oooh yay!! Can I also steal some Happy Banana while I am at it?? Just a taste. Btw let me know if there is anything in my cupboard you would like.

Sil

YES! you were supposed to get that from me…yes. yes. yes. i’ll see if i can pull out a sample tonight before i forget..but if i do just keep bugging me.

VariaTEA

Yay! Thank you!!

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.
