noms. I’ve been sipping on this one all afternoon, trying to find the strength not to reach through the phone and choke people. really enjoy this cup of tea from mandala. Will need to add it to the list of things to pick up whenever i get around to an order again.

Another tea from A Quarter to tea As some of you may know, i don’t love oolongs, but i don’t hate them. I do however, love a good caramel oolong…and add some apple to the mix, i am usually sold.

this one brews up as a nice bakes sort of tea. at least that’s first impressions…baked caramel gods…followed up apple and what feels like, a hint of cinnamon…except that it might just be me projecting that, because this does a good job of creating that baked apple sort of goodness…ingredients say…yes there is cinnamon in here but it’s not IN YOUR FACE cinnamon. it’s a subtle blending of apple, caramel and cinnamon. I am a fan.

i think this one is turning on me. It’s much more floral than it used to be. there’s still that delicious caramel taste to this…but there’s a green oolong taste coming through more than usual. Better drink up or share as quickly as possible.

Is today caramel day, Sil?

So glad i was able to pick this up while in paris. It was a total splruge given the price even though it was much less expensive than some teas…but it is delicious! I hope NoFarS is doing well – it was she who introduced Terri (and through Terri, me) to this tea. So here’s to friends from far and wide who come together through tea. This is as i remember it…malty, chocolatey…delicious. even cold (work distracted me) i am enjoying every last drop!

drank Banana Nut Pancakes by A Quarter to Tea
7482 tasting notes

First off, thanks to much to quarter to Tea for sending out these great samples of teas. I’m always looking for new blends, especially since there is no more butiki. :( I picked this one because i LOOOOVE a good banana tea.

Ceylon’s are not my go to tea, as they generally have an astringency that I dislike. In this tea though, i quite like the base. I steeped this for 4.5 mins and there’s no bitterness or astringency. the base is quite nice and comes through without overpowering the tea. I did make sure to get some nuts and bananas in to the cup for a balanced steeping. What comes through predominantly is the pankcake/walnut feel. I don’t really get much in the way of banana. Once the cup cools, there is a hint of banana, but it remains a nutty/walnut? pancake sort of blend. that aside, i still quite like this tea but i want more banana! So imo….boost up the banana in this bad boy and you’ll have a fantastic tea here :) Really nice first cup from A quarter to tea. thanks for sharing!

Another delicious tea for this morning. Gotta love it when you can get going at the crack of dawn and be super productive well before anyone else bothers to get up. I sometimes adore working from home when i can roll out of bed and start work at 5:30am in my pj’s with some great cups of tea!

keychange

I’d be a lot more productive that way as well, actually!

I love working from home in my pjs too, but you’ll probably never see me at my computer at 5:30am, LOL. Sister, you will be happy to know that I DO get up around 6:45 Mon – Fri now, stretch a little, then take a walk with 3 (out my 4) of my Adult Children. We’ve been doing it for a few months now, so no more laying in bed until 9:30 for me except on the weekends (when it’s more like 10 or 11 or so)

Sil

i get up every morning at 5:30 so if i’m up, i might as well start workign before people wake up and annoy me lol. i DO try to take an exercise break at lunch though so keep me from going all day in front of the computers

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.
