drank Dewy Cherry by Adagio Teas

blech. this was a free sample from adagio, which i figured might be nice for a cold brew. Turns out, this is too floral for me. It was semi nice and then there was just too much of a floral note in it. I guess it’s from the hibiscus flowers but i’m surprised. oh well, since it’s something i might have considered, it’s still a win :)

drank Vanilla Rooibos Chai by The TeaCupany
4875 tasting notes

Dexter sent this one my way since i asked really nicely :) Opening this up, i was immediatly reminded of vanilla citrus spice from verdant, until the cloves hit….something else in there also made me think of after dark by steam. Since there was an abundance of cloves in this sample, i picked a bunch out before brewing it since i know i generally only like cloves in moderation.

Brewed, this is a decent blend. it really is somewhere in the middle of those two teas – reminding me of both of them, while being very clearly, it’s own tea. :) I enjoyed a cup of this tonight while hoping for some end in sight for testing. I’m so ready for bed…. thanks for bringing a spot of sunshine to the evening dexter!

Final Count: 124

this tea bag + honey = nice evening relaxing tea. This is another teabag i took from the hotel lol and i’m glad that i did. It’s nice to be able to try a few more harney teas without committing to a whole tin! this is lemoney and refreshing and mostly just warm and comforting tonight. Clearly i’m crashing a little after 36+ hours on 2 hrs of sleep heh

drank Shui Xian Lao Cong by Camellia Sinensis

This was a sample from dexter It’s a roasty oolong, and while the brewed aroma is that oolongy taste i’m not a huge fan of, this is a really nice brewed cup of tea. it’s not overly bold, but it’s not a wimpy oolong either…sort of middle of the road with a bread like sort of taste to it. I’d be inclined to pick this one up again if i needed a ump to get me to free shipping threshold or something with an order but it wouldn’t be a permanent restock. thanks for sharing dexter!

Sil

also resteeps nicely!

I snuck a bag of this from the hotel while i was travelling. I’m really glad now that i did. this might need to become a regular in my cupboard sometime. it’s the right balance of malty keemun goodness. this is a great afternoon tea for me today haha bumping the rating up a bit as i’m finding this to be really pleasant today.

drank Anna's by TeaGschwendner
4875 tasting notes

mmmmmmm…. so i picked this one up, because on my wishlist i had anna’s from tin roof teas but got confused and thought that it was anna’s from tea gschewoiruoewiru….

I’m super glad that i did. while the dry aroma isn’t all that fantastic, brewed – this is a really nice raspberry tea. Hot, it was delicious and as it cooled, it was still a pleasant cup of tea. I only picked up a sample of this one, but i’d consider picking up more the next time i’m in chicago again…AS LONG, as i get through some of my teas… lol

this was a sample from tea gscoiewrowieru…. and i’m largely unimpressed. there is very little that is tangerine like or yogurt like to me. I made sure to get bits of all of that in my teaspoons and i’m really just getting a vaguely citrus like green oolong. It smelled really nice, but i’m glad i just picked up the sample.

In an effort to trying and actually get through some of my puerh samples, i figured i should try to have 1-2 today, since my day is pretty much shot thanks to work stuff. I like this one, for much of the same reason i really love wild Monk from mandala…that smokey taste in the background of a smooth tasting brew. I’m not going to wax poetic about this one, but it’s one that i could see picking up a cake of, in the future when we have a proper place for me to have mountains of puerh!

Thanks for sharing this one with me Cavocorax

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.
