I’ll have to try this one in a mug..because the first time i had it, i loved it. This last time i had it, it was meh..and the only difference that i can tell is really the mug versus travel mug. SOOOO jury is still out on this one haha

Another one from yesterday and man, it’s incredible how different this tea is from the first time i tried it and didn’t like it. NOW, i really enjoy it and i’m finding less enthusiasm for my zhu rong…which is sad because i’d really just love all three of the black teas i have from verdant lol

Upping the rating a little for this batch. delicious!

backlogging from yesterday. Love this one with a little cacao added to it when i want a more indulgent treat. :) I am nearly to the end of my supply…then, thankfully it’s on to the excess that terri gave me…which i’m lucky she did because even though i preordered, it’s delayed and so who knows when my precious will be back….contemplating another order already just in case haha

drank Campfire Blend by Verdant Tea

mmmmm pulled this one out of the cupboard tonight because after a month with no real tea drinking time, i want things that i enjoy in the evening. I still really enjoy this one, though it appears that the sweet spot this time around is at about 8 mins. I know with earlier batches it was 12 ish so maybe it’s because it’s fresh. Still loving this one as an evening substitute for vanilla citrus spice. Today was a good “work from home but not too much,” day since i’ve got to go to work tomorrow and friday.

a nice tasty cup of this tonight while watching a rare three episodes of GOT tonight with my other half. He doesn’t watch much tv so i’m lucky if we do two episodes in an evening! I think he’s feeling generous after not having me around for 6-7 wks lol

I really like this one, especially in the evening with a splash of honey. I much preferred this one over the other david’s herbal i had earlier. :)

if you’re going to drink one damn fine tea…you might as well drink a second! :) I am taking a few moments out of my day to try and plan a vacation in November. My other half can’t get away in October as he’s looking after our friend’s child M-F but November should be doable, and much needed after all the travelling i’ve had to do for work sept/oct.

I think there’s a little of the ginger from the last cup of tea that seeped in to this cup, so it’s not the best cup of tiger tea that i’ve had, but that’s on ME not the tea :)

I bought these tins a while back and for whatever reason haven’t brought myself to have tea from them since. I really enjoy A& D teas. There’s something to be said for 4oz of unassuming delicious straight black tea.


A & D is good stuff


Sil I think you’d love Oktoberfest.

mmm this is an interesting one. Nothing i need to restoack (Sorry David’s) but it will be fine to drink until i’m done my little sample. The mint in this one is refreshing, and the citrusy notes that go along with it are quite nice. A little honey added to this really brought the flavours together a little better. Nice for a cooler afternoon.

drank Ginger Pear (organic) by DAVIDsTEA

I’m not sure how i feel about this one. I really like the ginger and the pear flavour…but there’s a sweetness or something underlying the flavours that isn’t sitting well with me. I’m going to take a pause on this one and try it again once i’m 100% better and see if that helps in case it’s just because i’m not feeling well.


Feel better


I had a ginger pear kombucha once, and the flavors worked really well together in that context.

i think i prefer the other variation on this theme from this morning. this one is less…just “less” the cup isn’t as strong and to me it’s lacking in the flavour that the other cup was. It’s still a nice cup, and i’m glad terri shared it with me but overall, i’d reach for the other YS tea before 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.
