this + cacao = best snow day tea ever. Although i DID go in to work, i was the only one who did. But i got a ton of work done and it was nice and relaxing as far as tea drinking and working went…so there!

I thought of you the other day while I was eating this really dark chocolate, fudgy brownie, while drinking LB… it was probably the most delicious combo I’ve ever had (I liked it even better than red wine and chocolate! Who knew!?)…. You, dear Lady, are genius. :)

OMGsrsly

Better than wine and chocolate, what?! (More wine for me… :D )

drank Golden Honey Dew by Lupicia

only one more cup of this after tonight before it’s gone from my cupboard. While that will make me sad, it will also force me to drink up some of my other teas in the hopes that some day the dollar will go up and i can order from the US again sigh

Another from my what-cha order! Trying to balance between the 1023012938109382 samples i ordered from them and the swaps that i’ve recently picked up, in an effort to drink up SOME things before my other teas arrive. I added all the teas from missB in to my cupboard and was at 151 – so effectively double what it was at the end of december lol

This is a tasty offering from What-cha. It’s malty, sweet and delicious! Even cold it still offers up a really nice brew! I’m a fan and would consider reordering in the future.

not really appropriate in someone’s tea note. better to post in the discussions forums.

I’ve had this one a couple times now and can honestly say that this is a darjeeling that i can get behind. It’s lacking that muscatel taste i don’t love…and there’s a sweetness here that is delicious. The last of this is off to Terri to try out since i know i owe her a few interesting teas to try heh

My dearest dexter sent me a lovely box of straight teas that i have had to neglect as i haven’t had time to sit and enjoy tea on my weekend recently. I don’t like trying samples from friends at work in travel mugs as i like to give them their full attention. Of course, as i say that, i drank this one several hours ago, and my other half dragged me outside before i had a chance to write a tasting note lol.

As some of you know, Jin Jun mei’s are hit or miss for me. I don’t seem to love them with the same passion as others do. This one was on the nice side though. Sweet, not really malty but reminded me of sweet potatoes a little…I had this one gulped down pretty quickly :) Also my first experience with this company if i’m not mistaken. :) thanks dexter!

Cavocorax gave me a cup of this to try out since it was once that i didn’t order. I had waffled on this one but in the end chose not to pick it up as i was fairly certain it wouldn’t be on my LOVED list at the end of the day. Turns out? I was right. While i do like the raspberry tea aspect of this, i found that it wasn’t very cashew like and at teh end of the day it felt a little wimpy. Not my favourite of stacy’s teas, and not one that i’ll miss…but it was really nice to get to try it, so thank you Cavo!

drank Coffee & Cigarettes by Butiki Teas
6407 tasting notes

Cavocorax gave me up a precious bit of her tea because her package arrived before ours..and let me tell you. I wish to heck i’d been able to buy more of this now. As gross as this tea sounds (i don’t smoke, can’t stand it..though i do enjoy coffee…) it’s fantastic. It’s got that depth to it from the puerh…..the coffee kicks in making it seriously yum and then there’s that smoke hanging out in the background. I had several steepings of this today while trying to eek out as much as i could from this. Adding sugar made it more like a dessert…adding cream just made it more coffee like. I am a fan. seriously. SO GOOD! Anyone doesn’t want theirs, just pass that on to me!

Stephanie

Wow I should have tried this one :)

Sil

no no you totally don’t want to try it ahem

Stephanie

HA well it is too late now anyway Sil!

Sil

ok but if you find some…from someone…. just give it to me…you don’t need to try it. just saying lol

Cavocorax

Ha! I forgot I shared some of this with you. I thought my bag felt like! I enjoyed the cup I had today but I’ll pass the rest of my 1/2 oz over to you since you loved it while it was more of a 78 for me!

Sil

haha

i had a cup of this today…while i went through my cupboard and tried o get everything all tidied up for when my orders get here…since a few of them will take a couple weeks because of us to canada shipping, i’m hoping being organised will let me get a few sipdowns in before they arrive, so my start of year cupboard will be a little smaller lol

This one is malty and sweet and delicious! It’s not my favourite from YS but it’s a good one and worth having around until i drink the rest up :)

Terri HarpLady

Is this one of the ones you got while visiting me?

Sil

no i bought this one and sent you some :) or it’s in your second box…lol

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.
