another tea from jump62359 and it;s delicious! I can’t honestly say whether i like this one or the melon oolong better. I think they could both have a place in my cupboard because YES MELON PLEASE! lol i’m glad i got to try this one close to the melon oolong though. of course, now i want to place a lupicia order…again. must. resist. lol thank you jump62359!

drank Doke Silver Needle by Butiki Teas

this was another of my morning teas….for some reason i was gravitating to my lighter teas even though first thing in the morning i generally want my black teas. I suspect that’s likely because i’m going to be with my bolder teas for the rest of the day. I love having this tea here and there. I don’t prefer whites and greens to my black teas, but there’s something to be said for having one or two of these unflavoured teas in my cupboard for when i want a cup of delicious, refreshing, spring, happy tea!

sipdown :) i was going to try for 4 today to make tomorrow only be 10 but i don’t think i have enough time before i leave for the day. We’ve got a decent day planned of board games and seeing a couple sets of friends today so long day, and little chance to bring any extra teas outside of my travel mugs. Not sad to see this one go, though it’s lovely. there are just others that i prefer drinking more :)

this tea makes me sad.. it’s not blergamot-ey; it’s not orange-y…it’s just bark-ish? I dunno what the magic is but i can’t seem to make it happen. I’ll drink it, but it’s just kinda there… poop.

drank Turkish Apple by Blue Teapot

This was a free sample with the teas that i picked up from the Blue teapot while in Vancouver. it wasn’t one that i’d been thinking about picking up, but it’s not half bad. Kittyloves tea had it right when she said that this is a “mixture of sweet and sour tones and crispness.” overall a nice enough tea but nothing to get all excited and crazy over!

Another tea from jump62359 that i had earlier in the afternoon. this one wasn’t bad, though i STILL don’t like that whole black/green blend thing. it always confuses me…how do i brew it? what’s going on! AAAAAAH! Either way, this wasn’t bad but nothing i need to drink again.. It’s fun to consider the fandom blends though in terms of the story lines and how this tea might be someone’s idea of what that concept was like…. :)

jump62359

With black/green blends or black/white blends, I usually brew it to the temperature of the lighter tea, but brew it longer than usual to make up for the black tea… if that makes any sense? It’s a lot of experimentation with the times and just making sure that it doesn’t get bitter :)

Sil

yeah.. i do that too but it still hurts my head every time!

OMGsrsly

Need more tea. Read that first line as “Still Not Dead”.

Sil

well it’s technically true.. lol

OMGsrsly

I would hope so, considering you’re still posting here. :)

Cavocorax

I just do what Adagio tells me. Sometimes that makes a huge difference! (there I go trusting in the fandom creators again)

yyz

I hardly ever follow recipes, except maybe for baking anything that needs to rise. Once I make something once I tend to wing it unless I really loved the recipe and found it unusual. I kind of do the same with tea.

Cavocorax

And that’s why I’m not good at baking/cocoking. I don’t have any creativity or confidence in going off on my own until I’ve followed the proper instructions at least once. :P

this is one of my oldest teas at the moment – purchased last September. I ended up getting “extra” because of mishaps with my order but now i’m wishing that I hadn’t lol I mean i didn’t pay for it, so i could just get rid of it but that’s a waste considering i like this tea well enough :) Soooo i’m trying to drink this up at least once a week to work my way down. it’s an interesting vanilla, though i find i like it best when i mix it up with a more chocolatey blend :)

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.
