hello candied almond tea. CharlotteZero also sent this one my way – which is also why i paired it with the other MF tea i had this evening. My mousse au chocolat is still my favouite of the heritage teas but i have to say both of these rooibos blends are pretty tasty. This one is a more delicate almond tea – not knocking me in the face like so many others. It’s also not that sweet, over whelming sort of almond. This is a gentle almond and quite nice! thanks charlotteZero!

Final Count: 150 (137 to 157 and back down again….one swap incoming and not even going to try to get to my 130 goal for this month…but maybe 140 is doable to have my ins and outs be the same for the month heh)

thank you charlotteZero for sending this one my way. I haven’t had an opportunity to try out many rooibos blends from MF, so this one was on my list – especially given that it’s an apple sort of tea. I will have to try steeping this a little longer next time to coax out more of the buttery apple flavour, but this one was a win in my books tonight. I have really been loving this cup while watching a bit of tv and trying figure out how to sleep and get up tomorrow. haha

VariaTEA

Why must the heritage gourmand collection only come in tins?! As lovely as they are, it just makes things so expensive

Sil

I agree!

drank Lemon Tart by Pekoe Tea Lounge
4842 tasting notes

Another one i forgot to review and log before vacation and now it’s a sipdown! this is another tea from missB and while i like it on the whole, better than the chocolate truffle, i want this to be just a bit more lemony and a lot more tarty. This is more of a lemon black to me as it seems to be missing that je ne sais quois that would = tartilicious! that being said, it’s still a tasty cup and i’m happy to have tried it! Thanks MissB!

drank Chocolate Truffle by Pekoe Tea Lounge
4842 tasting notes

Apparently i forgot to log a few teas before i left for vacation. I had this then, and now that i’m back it’s a sipdown. For the most part this is an average sort of chocolate tea. I don’t get the rich decadent chocolate that i expect when something is a truffle. It’s not a bad cup of tea but i want MOAR decadence….not this wimpy chocolate :) Thanks for sharing missb!

drank Ginger Lime by Bayswater Tea Co.
4842 tasting notes

always on the search for more ginger teas – especially non caffinated ones, i picked this up while at bayswater. I was originally going to get the ginger pineapple, but when i smelled this one, i knew it was the way to go. This is like lime gelato from david’s tea but less sugar and more spicy kick! Again, i could handle more ginger but on the whole, this is a really tasty one. it’s got just enough ginger to satisfy me and accompanies the lime really nicely. So glad i opted for this one over the pineapple since i think that wouldn’t have been as nice.

Courtney

I smelled this one and ended up passing, just because I had too many.

OMGsrsly

I’m adding teas to my shopping list, even though I am not allowed to go tea shopping for many many months at this point. :)

Courtney

I went a little crazy, but those are the only two shops i’m going to. 12 new teas and $80 down. Eep. OMGsrsly, I noticed Pekoe Tea en route to Bayswater – have you been?

Sil

MissB has gone to Pekoe tea – she sent me a few. Of the ones i’ve tried, i’d be more inclined to do bayswater. Only 12 teas…sheesh…try harder! :)

Sil

omg – happy to send you some as well to try. I still have the bolder breakfast set aside for you too

OMGsrsly

Courtney, Pekoe carries Steeps teas, and some from other suppliers. They measure into tins. Some are good, some are terrible, and the service really depends on the staff as it is more of a cafe.

OMGsrsly

Sil… :P

I’m too overwhelmed with life right now to deal with more teas. :) I haven’t had any today again… I made more coffee this morning.

Sil

OMG…next time you’re at steam tell him your vacationing friends were sad they got no samples and had to get 100g….

Courtney

Gah, I know 100g was so much! For Maple Seduction it’s fine, but I didn’t really want 100 of the other two haha. Good to know about Pekoe too.

Try harder :P I’m not up in the hundreds of teas like you Sil, and I need to keep it that way haha!

Sil

courtney..i could change all that for you bwahahaha

Sil

..also i’m LESS than 100 from where you’re at…totally not bad :P

Courtney

Good job! Hehe, I have zero cupboard space as it is, and my teas have now taken up another drawer. I think the issue is, all the teas in my Steepster cupboard are actually decent amount.

OMGsrsly

I totally will, Sil! That sucks so much.

drank Maple Taffy by Bayswater Tea Co.
4842 tasting notes

I picked this up on my travels this past week and since courtney was stepping in to bayswater she had me go try this and report back to her lol. Not that she likely wouldn’t have bought it anyway after smelling it because this one smells DEEELICIOUS! but i was happy to report back that this one is quite tasty! There is cinnamon in this, and what appears to be popcorn. That being said, this is clearly a maple tea. But it’s maple+ lol Not sure how else to describe it really. I’m not sure if i’d call this taffy but it’s maple yum. and that’s good enough for me today!

Courtney

SO excited to try this one!

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.
