GCTTB Another one that LP provided. I’ve been excited to try this one because i do enjoy black berry teas. The addition to sage in the blend made me even more curious. When this is hot, it’s mostly blackberry and delicious…as it cools, the sage gradually takes over. this is quite nice and i’m super glad to get to try it. thanks LP!

I quite liked this one as well.

drank Oolberry by Liquid Proust Teas

GCTTB

I’m trying to figure out how to add some teas to the box without overflowing it. I pulled this one out even though i’m not generally a fan of oolongs because of how it looked. What an interestingly fun tea :) While there are floral notes to this green oolong, there’s also a juicy fruit flavour going on that i quite like. thanks for sharing LP!

sample from evol ving ness as i have to get through a few samples as well as get started on the GCTTB. I brewed this one up thinking it was a straight black for some reason. However as soon as the water hit the leaf, i knew that wasn’t the case. Sadly this isn’t a tea i can get behind. I suspect it’s the rose and lychee combination. I get zero chocolate from this one. Nothing wrong with the tea itself, but for me, this doesn’t work. Always happy to try new things though, so thanks evol!

This is one which benefits from multiple steepings, or that has been my experience.

How interesting it is to see how varied people’s takes are on the same teas!

Sil

yes! that is why sharing is fun :)

One of two teas today. Yesterday we went out to Niagara for an event at the winery for which we’re members. It was our first event as we’re trying out this whole wine thing this year. Needless to say it was fantastic but a late night, especially since this morning we were up early to go out to Niagara again for a redo at one of the wineries that we hadn’t had a great experience with. So i packed this one today to drink on our adventures. A seriously great day for just being out and about..sunny skies, just me and my other half spending time together in the car, at wineries and really making a day of our saturday off together.

Evol Ving Ness

drank Vanilla Black Tea by Capital Tea Ltd.

Sample from Evol Ving Ness and while i’ve had this one before ages ago it was nice to revisit it. I still prefer the subtle differences that you find with fancy french vanilla teas. On the other hand, this one is certainly more readily available to have. thanks a bunch evol!

Evol Ving Ness

I might just need another cup of this one right now.

Evol Ving Ness

Sil, what is your favourite vanilla tea? Or top two even?

Sil

Black orchid by MF i think…

Sil

there’s also another one that isn’t easily attainable lol from fru p

Evol Ving Ness

Thanks, Sil. Checking prices for Denmark flights. :)

OMGsrsly

Oh gosh, tickets to France just came up on a flight deals blog I follow. MF. Yum.

i forgot to take this out of my cupboard last weekend when i shared the last of this with cavocorax and christina. While i thoroughly enjoyed this one, i still think i like the fauchon version just a tiny bit more. that being said, it’s still an oolong, and i love it, so that speaks volumes to this tea :)

Morning tea. I vastly prefer drinking this one at home in a ceramic mug, so it almost always becomes my tea for working at home :) Still enjoying this one though it would be nice if smaller options were available. I still don’t LOVE most ceylons, but there are a few out there including this one that isn’t so bad :)

drank Appletini by Tealish

farewell tea! few more herbals to drink up so that i can let myself open up some of my new teas. I did really well in January, so hoping to keep up with the good work. I don’t think i need to pick this one up again. Tasty, but i prefer the pina colada 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.
