drank Two Tigers by The Devotea
4923 tasting notes

tea from this morning! Sadly i was in back to back meetings all day and so 14 hours ago seems like a really long time from now. I opted for this one because i’m trying to get into all the devotea teas that terri sent me before she gets another box out my way haha. Add to that the incoming orders and i’m a little crazy! On the upside, my butiki order gets here tomorrow, we’re going to see the Lion King on friday (it’ll be my 5th? time) and saturday i’m going out with my friend and her little one for wedding dress shopping.

right..back to the tea. lol this was a bold tasty cup of KERPOW to wake me up this morning but that’s about all that i remember. better tasting notes to come i’m sure, since i have a bit more of this one to play with :)

This was a pretty tasty cup tonight as we worked out a group order from Lupicia. Not something I need to restock, but I am a fan. I appreciate charlottezero sending me some of this to try out.

Final Count: 138 (tooooooo slow!)

drank Pumpkin Milkshake 2.0 by Butiki Teas

Sipdown! Best cup ever of this, mostly because all the extra bits of flavouring are there haha. Not sure I need to restock this one because I really like pumpkin creme brûlée a lot, but I’ve enjoyed having this!

Mmmmmm this one is quite good! Terri suggested this one last night, so I picked it as one of he the morning teas today. For some reasoning I’m getting smokey notes, which no one else seems to have. That being said, it IS a bold, delicious cup and I’m happy that I’ve got more. Hahaha

Terri HarpLady

I think this has become my favorite Devotea tea. :)

Robert Godden

Great to hear that you liked and Terri, it has been noted!

I have a few black teas from ttc to get through so I’m trying to weave them in to my rotation without making it a chore. :) this is one of my favourites, though it’s changed slightly. I fully love this company though I for sure Need to stick to ordering samples…lots of them hahaha

This was my “flavoured” for today. I’m out of LB for the time being, but this will hopefully tie me over until it gets here….delicious and tasty. And that’s all. I have to say.

Terri HarpLady

When is the LB suppose to come in?

Sil

Mid June….so not at my place until like July….

whatshesaid

Are you mostly drinking straight teas these days? I suppose I could look through all your reviews lately but I never noticed as you wrote them! (Whether they were predominantly straight teas or not)

Sil

Naw I’m still drinking both, but I always take 2 blacks and 1 flavoured to work…. Thn when I come home it’s typically flavoured and maybe one black…

Terri HarpLady

So organized ;)

whatshesaid

No kidding! I’m just like “what is at arm’s length that I feel like drinking”

Haha
Though I’ve started taking out like 4 teas a day I want to sipdown or revisit! Some kind of system is necessary when your tea cupboards look like ours, I suppose

Sil

i mostly do that because i know during the day i prefer my straight blacks…if i need flavour i can always go get a juice or something. I also have loads more straight teas than flavoured :)

drank Lord Petersham by The Devotea

this was my other tea from this morning and man, it was delicious! I have a bunch of devotea teas to finish up from when my tea sister Terri was kind enough to send some my way. Some of them with larger amounts, so i’m hoping that Cavo won’t have tried SOME of them lol This one though, is all mine. I first tried it through the aomda box and loved it, and i still really enjoy it. :)

Final Count: 139

Terri HarpLady

Glad you like it. Did you drink the 1910 yet?

Sil

Not yet..but i took them all out of their home to make them visible so that i’ll go through them all this week :)

VariaTEA

This is in the box. You will have more soon :)

Cavocorax

I fell in love with this through the Amoda box, and then contacted them to get a cheaper shipping rate to buy some more. :D

Robert Godden

So glad you like it. I’m having some now to celebrate that fact!

drank Fleurilège by Dammann Freres
4923 tasting notes

Another tea from this morning, though i have to say that today it fell flat. I’m hoping it’s because i steeped it for a shorter time than normal, rather than because it’s old (only 5 months!). It was still nice, but nearly as delicious as i wanted it to be….as it usually it. hmmm have to try it again soon and see if it’s the tea or just my “today”

drank Laoshan Black by Verdant Tea
4923 tasting notes

ZOMG IT’S ALL GONE! sigh yeah that’s right… i’m officially all out until the pre-order arrives…+10 days. ugh. So that basically means – the beginning of July. Not sure i can handle a wait that long, but i’m going to have to! Good thing i’ve got lots of teas to amuse myself with. That also means my oldest tea is officially October (but i have no november teas left) and there are only 3 from october. woohoo! (yes i’m ignoring the fact that i also have 23 teas from december to get through before July 1 lol)

I enjoyed this one thoroughly today, had a couple resteeps when i got home and have fully enjoyed my last cup of this… until we meet again LB…because we will…always.

Courtney

What do you think of “Mr. He’s 1st Picking LB”? I can’t decide.

Sil

When i had it, i was nice..but i didn’t think it warranted the crazy ass price to be honest. I’m content with normal LB

Courtney

Good to know ladies. Maybe I will adjust my cart. Hmm.

whatshesaid

Darn, I ordered some

Dinosara

Eh, to me it was justified, but I don’t consume it as fast as Sil, haha. Still have some of my 1st picking from last year.

Amanda 'SoggyEnderman' Wilson

I drank the last of my LB the other night, I swear each time I drink it the tea just seems to get better!

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.
