probably my last cup of tea for the day with travelling and such unless i get off the plane and MUST HAVE TEA…which is always a possibility. HOping i’ve got the right balance of tea that i’m bringing to be able to get through most of it before we come home. heh esp since i know i’ll be buying tea while there. I actually have one more cup of this that i’m bringing with me for a rainy day when i need some comfort.

Final Count: 140 (1 swap and a few purchases incoming – 10 to go…)

drank Queen Anne by Fortnum & Mason

Dropping the rating of this one a little. This has a bit of bitterness in the background that i don’t find terribly appealing. it’s not a bad cup, but this strikes me as more of a milk and sugar cup of tea versus royal blend that i can drink straight – my preferred way of drinking tea.

Yeah, I was not super impressed with this one. It’s ok, but it’s not like that other Queen tea that’s out there. :D

yep like this one better than queen anne. This one is a smoother brew that’s not SUPER bold, but it’s got enough of a kick this morning for me to be really enjoying it.

drank Yunnan Aged Qizi Pu-erh Tea by Yezi Tea

Ok…incoming crappy tasting notes as i have spent the morning trying to finish work…go go double time and a half on this holiday, so that i can then PACK lol

I picked this one first thing in the morning for both a sipdown and to try and clear my head with a little puerh. I have to say, this is such a great unassuming puerh from yezi. It’s not earthy..but it is mellow and manly? there’s somethnig about this one that i really enjoy – moreso than the other recent puerh i had from yezi. i’ll likely pick up more of this for an average every day sort of puerh

I’m thinking I should go to traveling Tea & get a sample of everything she has, & send them ALL to you! HAHAHAHAHA! I was gonna do that with trail lodge teas too, but she doesn’t have sample sizes anymore.

TTC and Yezi – teas tha ti have quite a bit of, but i’ve been putting off getting in to while i finished up some of my other teas. But now it’s time to start getting back in to them along with my norbu teas heh. I am still loving this one a bunch. I’m really glad that Tastybrew introduced me to Yezi and that they seem to be sticking around!

another from this morning – i am trying to drink this and the royal blend in order to make sure i balance out finishing them. I think i like royal blend just a teeeeny bit more than this, but i’d have to drink them side by side again to make sure as it’s been too long (yes a day) since i had the royal blend lol

Terri HarpLady

I can’t remember if I finished those off or not. I’m thinking I like the Royal blend best, but can’t remember for sure.

Bio

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.
