First tea from this morning. Not much more to write except that it was tasty delicious and the perfect start to what is going to be s long day of dog. Sitting.

Terri HarpLady

What kind of dog? :)

Sil

uh…i think he’s a cross between a poodle and a golden retriever. he’s testing me.

Terri HarpLady

I just ordered a crazy order from YS

Sil

uh oh…

Terri HarpLady

I went with the cheapo shipping, so I won’t get it for 2 or 3 months, LOL
But they were having a teawares sale, and there were a few things that I wanted, plus I finally ordered my 2015 black teas, from both spring & fall :)

Sil

Sil

Terri HarpLady

drank Blueberry White by Simple Loose Leaf

this is a pretty darn good tea. The blueberry flavour is nice and blends well with the shou mei. I think this might be an interesting one to try cold and is certainly miles better than blueberry jam from dt, imo. :) thanks keychange

drank Sweet Orange White by Simple Loose Leaf
7440 tasting notes

this was another disappointment for me today. I had high hopes for it based on the smell of the dry leaf, but it was not meant to be. It reminds me a LOT of the wild sweet orange tea from tazo that i liked when i first started drinking tea but have since found icky. This isn’t a terrible tea per say…it’s just not the delicious orange tea that i hoped for based on the smell. it falls flat.

drank Thé sur la Lune by Nina's Paris

i feel like this is a tea that i SHOULD like..but it was 100% NOPE when i tried to drink it. Something about the way the flavours were blending together made this undrinkable for me. blech.

Another from omgsrsly this one smells delicious but is a little lacking in the taste department. I really wanted this to be a stronger flavoured tea. The weak factor of this one makes me like it a little less than i would if it had a strong intense candied almond flavour. All that being said though, i am in agreement that this is a tasty tea!

drank Baozhong Oolong Tea by Oollo Tea

Another tea from VariaTEA always nice trying new teas…even if they are green oolongs! This has a fabulous aroma to it, though it ands squarely in that oolong range that i don’t love. However, ignoring that, i can see this being a nice vegetal oolong for those that like that taste.

VariaTEA

Haha I don’t remember owning half of these teas

Sil

well that’s ok :) I’m enjoying them haha

mmmm thank you keychange for a revisit with this tea. I should have made it in latte form but it was nice to just have a dark and delicious cup today on this cool afternoon. :) It’s nice to revisit old favourites

keychange

Sil

this one came to me via cavocorax and isn’t half bad. I don’t generally enjoy darjeelings…they’re like fake black teas to me that taste like greens and oolongs – not my favourite. however, since i’ve had a few in my time that i have liked, i’m always willing to try new ones. This one isn’t half bad. It’s got that green taste to it, but it’s not drying or bitter and i drank all of it! thanks cavo!

my other half better appreciate me. We got him a bike before the wedding, now he’s getting a car and he volunteered to dog sit for 4 days…at our place. sheesh! lol the things i let him get away with. Finished off this tea today and it was an enjoyable cup. Still have a bunch of sipdowns i want to try and get through over the next three days. but i’m glad that some of those cups will be tasty cups of tea like this one.

minty, vanilla goodness. nothing super special about this one beyond the name… for those of you that know helen, she’s still made because she doesn’t have a new crown, but she’s making up for it by wearing a helmet now. special helmet for a special dino. enjoyed this tea courtesy of missB :)

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.
