drank Pumpkin Ginger Spice by Traveling Tea
6479 tasting notes

this is back in my cupboard courtesy of terri and that makes me SUPER happy. This is especially potent since my previous experience with this tea was from a bag terri had already opened and shared with me. with this bag, it was sealed and super fresh. Opening it was an explosion of delicious ginger and pumpkin. i love this tea…it’s ginger and REAL pumpkin chunks…and spice. make no mistake, this is a pumpkin SPICE tea…but damn it’s good. thank you so much for this terri!

I’m still enjoying mine, & hopefully we’ll get to order this every year from now on.

Sil

I had a large cup of this one last night before bed. I’ve got oodles of this one and really need to drink more of it. I think part of the reason i don’t reach for it as often is that i prefer the kaphaa to this one from tea Gschwedner. this is lemony with a little vanilla but not my favourite. I’ll enjoy it while i have it left but i’m not sure that i’d restock it with so many other options i prefer

OMGsrsly

Oh, I need to make tea syrup with this one. That could be really tasty.

drank Chocolate Chili Truffle by Butiki Teas

this is an interesting one from Stacy. I quite like the kick to this one and it blends nicely with the chocolate. Not my absolute favourite of her last batch of teas but i really am enjoying the spicy kick of this one. It’s not spicy like kaphaa but it’s a slow build of heat as you drink more and more of it. neat!

drank Blackberry Cordial by Butiki Teas
6479 tasting notes

Finally got around to trying this one tonight. I don’t hate it but i don’t LOVE it either. I’m a fan of the blackberry flavouring that Stacy uses and this one blends together nicely but it’s just not something i’d reach for again and again. Still enjoyable but happy enough to only have the half ounce to finish up :)

free sample of this one in my latest mandala order – the rest is off to omgsrsly since it was a semi joint order lol and she can always share with folks out there if she doesn’t like it. this is a GREEN ooolong. it’s not like a milk oolong..but there is a creaminess to it that iam a fan of. that being said, i won’t need to order this since oolongs, they’re not for me most of the time…but i can say that this would probably be nice for an oolong fan!

drank Dark Side of the Melon by Butiki Teas
6479 tasting notes

yep! i like this one. It’s not knock your socks off and i see why some people think it’s a little light but i can get behind this, esp since i didn’t get to restock canteloupe and cream. I like stacy’s coffee/espresso flavouring so that’s a win :) now to get back to organising my cupboard lol ugh. glad i have a bit table!

Cavocorax

Oooh. I need to pick mine up!

VariaTEA

Do you want more?!?

Sil

it’s that sort of middle of the road for me. if i end up with more at some point, cool but i’m not ready to sell my first born for it if that makes sense haha

VariaTEA

I get it. I only ask because I have some and though I like it, I’m not into it enough to want so much. I would probably be happy with just a cup or two more and then I could pass along the rest.

drank Zhu Rong Yunnan Black by Verdant Tea
6479 tasting notes

not that i’m complaining because i do love this tea but it’s like the never ending tea in my cupboard. Somewhow i hadn’t been drinking it when i picked it up so it’s one of the oldest teas in my cupboard and until a couple days ago, one of the largest quantities lol oh well… “old” is relative since for me that’s 6 months haha.

Fjellrev

6 months as one of the oldest is very impressive!

Sil

i’m trying very hard to keep it as close to 6 months as possible….not counting puerhs of course

Terri HarpLady

I seem to always feel the need to order both this & LB every time Verdant gets a new shipment, so I have a pretty good stockpile of both, LOL.

Terri HarpLady

Luckily, I love them both!

Sil

yeah. verdant order if i ever get my cupboard under control. they haven’t had sichuan in a while though….

drank Nina's Japon by Nina's Paris

still my favourite of Nina’s teas. there’s just something about this one that i love…i had this one the other day as well, though i added a pinch of vanilla powder to it as well just to enhance the vanilla flavour….because it makes it even more delicious!

drank Jin Pin Black Tea by Yezi Tea

Another tea from the other day – sometimes i need a reminder as to how delicious these yezi teas are. I am a pretty big fan of their blacks and their puerh and they have some great customer service. It’s nice to have their teas back in my cupboard!

drank White Rhino by Butiki Teas

i pulled this one out a couple days ago to have – a share with me from kitenna which i am SUPER grateful for because i never had the chance to restock this one and i adore it. I will be incredibly sad when this package is gone because i haven’t found a tea like this to replace 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.
