Another that i picked up the other day from David’s. Surprisingly, i really like this one. it is a pretty good lime flavoured tea without having that bitterness i don’t like. win!

Final Count: 86

This or Lime Gelato?

Sil

hmmm tough call. this is like key lime… lime gelato is creamier? i like both..but i’d have to do a side by side heh

haha sooo brewing this one at home, i don’t like it as much as the sample i had in store, but i certainly don’t dislike it as much as some. there’s a taste on the back end of it though, that i’m not loving. oh well, at least i only have a little bit left. gotta love being able to have 10g samples :)

in SHARP contrast to the other nasty cup i had..this one is actually quite pleasant for a bagged tea. I don’t get a lot of rhubarb from this one but the blackcurrant and vanilla is nice for a bagged tea. Certainly nicer than a lot of the teas we have out here in bagged for, that’s for sure! thanks again missB!

The box is pretty.

I think rhubarb would be a difficult flavor to master in tea.

Sil

stacy did it..with my tea

Well Stacy is just awesome! Wish she would change her mind & keep selling tea, even if just a few blends as she had time.

another from missB and this one is like sticking my mouth into a vat of potpourri…and then finding the strawberry as i’m spitting out leaves. Gross. lol

Dexter

Suziqzer

Yikes! I’ve seen some blends that look like potpourri… I would hate to experience a tasting of them.. Gross!

drank Juicy Orange by DAVIDsTEA
6320 tasting notes

i picked this one up from David’s tea based solely on my love of orange teas and the positive review from aisling of tea, though others have not loved this. DRY, this smelled AMAZING…like delicious tangerine orange wonderfulness.

Brewed, it comes across more like a herbal than a puerh but more like i sometimes wish puerh stored in oranges would taste like. There is a sweetness to this brew that is similar to the sweetness i get from stevia or licorice root that is at the tail end of the sip. Agree that this is more like tang than orange but i think that comes from the tangerine flavour. It’s not a bad cup, but the after taste is bothersome….it makes me want to add a bit more puerh to the blend to see if that deepens the tea a bit. Still not bad, though i likely won’t need more than this sample

I figured that i should start trying a few of the new tea that are in my cupboard so that I’ll know if a re-order is warranted and so that I can share a few of them as well. I’m a fan of golden needle teas so i wanted to see where this one might end up in my list of teas.

this is a very smooth tea…slightly malty with a little sweetness, though not overly so. There’s a little astringency to this but nothing that is overwhelming or out of this world. just a really nice up of tea.

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.
