noms. sooooo goood. Anytime i pell this in dry form, i think i don’t relaly want it or i’m not in the mood, because it smells smokey…and i need to be in the right mindset for that. But then, when i brew it, i wonder why i haven’t had it more recently because while there’s smokey, there’s also a caramel, bourbon like flavour that is SO GOOD. Love this one.

Final Count: 107

drank Sichuan Caravan by Verdant Tea

i’ve been drinking this a bunch since omgsrsly was kind enough to restock me. I’m down to the last of it, as i’ve been having this frequently over the past few days since it has ginger in it. this is still nothing like the first version – now it’s got more of a sweetness to it that i don’t like as much. I miss the spiciness of the first version. Still though….was nice to visit with an old friend. :)

OMGsrsly

There’s a recipe! You could mix some up if you can get either that puerh, or a similar one…

Sil

someday…

OMGsrsly

Or I could mix stuff up for you and send it over for you to add puerh?

PUlled this one out again. it’s still a sort of average tea, though i am getting a few malt notes today as it cools. Not a bad tea, but pretty average.

drank Pina Colada by Tealish

had this one yesterday and i’m very nearly done. Now to decide if i pay the more expensive price and pick some up from tea G in chicago next week or i stick with the canadian supplier tealish, which is NEARLY as good… haha.

MissB

Oh, that yummy? K, I’m grabbing some at Chapters then the next time I’m there. Yay!

Sil

I can always send you the last of this, or more when I get more. It’s a nice “fruity” tea for when I just want something not black. And I drink it both hot and cold and like it.

pulled this one out given my swedish chef’s tasting note. I brought back 200g of this version and another 100g of the fauchon version and i’m paranoid the flavour is going to disappear or turn on me. Thankfully i was able to share some with the girls when they were over, but i still have plenty for folks to enjoy. :) Still like this one, though i think i landed firmly on the side of fauchon’s being a teeny bit more to my liking, though not enough for me to be disappointed that i have less of it

MissB

Don’t worry about the Fauchon one – like I shared, Fauchon is opening soon on Robson Street in Vancouver. You’ll get as much as you want, whenever! :)

Fjellrev

Hell yeah!

And WHAAAAAAT to Fauchon opening in Vancouver soon. You just couldn’t do that when I was still living on the west coast now, could you?

OMGsrsly

I KNOW RIGHT?! You’ll have to come visit. Somehow. :)

drank Cocteau by August Uncommon Tea

noms. not sure what else to say. I love that this is grapefruit and mint, though i think i’d like this even without the mint. So happy i picked up a sample of this to try in my last order with AU

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.
