drank The au Chocolat by Lupicia

I keep accidentally removing teas from my cupboard and adding them back in lol oh well. I had this one in the afternoon and even though i’m doing well with my cupboard – there are mini swaps incoming AND i intend to place a couple orders this month as well. So i’m trying to sample my smaller amounts of “new” teas that i haven’t tried yet to see whether they are bound for the swap bin or tasty teas i want more of! This one falls somewhere in the middle of things. this is chocolate tea for sure, and i’d love to try it with milk and sugar to see how that changes things in future. mostly though…it’s just tasty and delicious!

this is a tasty breakfast blend! Sadly i had this ages ago and remember nothing except the fact that i slurped through it super fast. Thankfully though, terri provided lots for me to try so i’ll play with this more and review it again with a better note in future haha

It’s made for ‘super fast’. We went though a kilo at one tasting event!

I’m trying to gradually work through some of my samples of puerh. In part because i know of SOMEONE who needs to try more, so i can split my samples in two haha! I’ve had this one before, and i found that this time around, i didn’t enjoy this one as much as the first time. While the first few steepings were light and enjoyable, over the last few that i had, there was an almost metallic taste that developed that i was not a fan of. I’d be willing to give this one another shot in a future yezi tea order though, as i generally have enjoyed most of their teas..esp since the first time, i really enjoyed it!

shhhhhh i like this tea. don’t tell the blergamot police! Shmiracles sent this one my way and i was a little wary of trying it. However, there’s a reason i try everything people send me, because you never know when something you don’t think you’d like, becomes something you’d like! this has got blergamot and coconut…two flavours i’m never a huge fan of but oh man…blended with the sweet delicious caramel and cream flavours…this is a hit for me! I really liked where this one went. Not overly full of blergamot and just sip after sip of delicious creamy caramel blerg taste. seriously. yum.

too late-the blerg police are on their way!

Shimiracles sent this my way and it’s quite tasty. I wish i’d realised it was a chai like sort of blend to try it with milk earlier, but that’s ok. I quite like the flavouring on this one as the cardamom is totally there saying HAAALLLLOO! the apple helps to smooth out the cinnamon flavouring so that it doesn’t come across as another apple cinnamon sort of tea. The ginger adds a bit of body to this one but as always, isn’t overly ginger. I quite like this one. thanks a bunch shmiracles!

……blended with black tea, natural chocolate flavor, natural blueberry flavor, dark chocolate chips, cocoa nibs, natural hazelnut flavor, raspberry leaves, blueberries….

seems to me there’s just way too much trying to get it’s thing on in this cup of tea. LOL shmiracles sent some of this my way to try out. I can identify random fruity flavour that might? be raspberry cut with a little blueberry… there’s a faint hint of what i recognise as adagio’s chocolate flavour..and uh i guess? maybe there’s an echo of hazelnut. For the most part though this turns into a melange of “stuff” and sort of a vaguely fruity kinda maybe chocolate sorta cup. Interesting, but not needed in my life haha

drank Irish Breakfast by Butiki Teas

…the other one from Terri in my morning comparison. This one is just a little more smooth than the malty irish breakfast, and therefore wins me over just a little bit more. This is a smooth, strong cup of tea that makes me happy.

Terri HarpLady

and your happiness makes me happy! :)

drank Malty Irish Breakfast by Butiki Teas

Terri sent me this one, and the regular irish breakfast, which is fantastic because they are both two teas i haven’t had a chance to order from Stacy. I feel like i’m slowly slidding down the side of having not tried a lot of the teas on her website, where before i had tried over 70% of them! haha I am having a seriously busy work week so i barely have time to drink tea, let alone log them but i am trying!

I had this one side by side with the Irish breakfast so i could see which i prefer. I think, my initial reaction is that i like the regular one a little better. There’s a bit of an astringent note to this one along with the maltiness that makes for less of a smooth cup of tea. It’s still a good solid cup that i will enjoy drinking, but in a straight up comparison, the other tea wins out by just a little :)

Butiki Teas

Interesting. I’m still thinking about bringing the other one back but I definitely want to keep this one.

Sil

I have a bit more of both from terri to try. I’ll be drinking them side by side until it’s all gone just to see if my tastes keep the same thoughts :) I’m stupidly busy with work today so it’s always possible i wasn’t paying enough attention haha

Butiki Teas

Well, the other one is definitely smoother. We made this based on feedback that customers were looking for a stronger Irish Breakfast.

Terri HarpLady

I love them both…it’s just so hard to decide! Luckily, I still have both of them!

drank Nina's Japon by Nina's Paris

another tea from yesterday and a great counteract to the other two teas i had with me at work. I probably should have ordered more than 50g of this, but i wasn’t sure how quicly i’d get through 50g as i have a ton of teas in my cupboard. Apparently the closer i get to 100 the more i start to feel like i have no teas to choose from lol. I love the vanilla/caramel in this one. It’s just so smooth and creamy and makes me happy. So glad i tried this again and loved it :)

Final Count yesterday: still 139. :)

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.
