drank Eggnog by DAVIDsTEA
6037 tasting notes

backlog still..

not sure what possessed me to pick this one up. I don’t like eggnog, don’t like white chocolate and i’m not a huge fan of david’s….but pick it up, i did and i brewed this up last night while watching a movie with my other half. I’m not sure how i feel about this…it’s creamy…but it’s much more white chocolate to me than eggnog, which is maybe better for me given my intense dislike of eggnog and my only semi hatred of white chocolate…which just isn’t chocolate if you ask me :) I’ll finish the sample of this that i picked up, but that’s as far as that will go heh

drank Apple Custard by DAVIDsTEA
6037 tasting notes

i picked up a little of this yesterday along with a couple other teas from david’s. As most of you know, i’m not overly a fan of their teas but i’ll try from occasionally just to see if there’s anything worthwhile. So far, i think i’ve found 2 teas? that i ever bought more than 50g of haha. This one isn’t bad, but on some levels, even though it’s got a weird taste to it, i like the apple cider tea a little better. I’ll drink the rest of this, but on the whole there isn’t much about this one that says BUY MORE OF ME! apple, little hint of vanilla…sweet. decent but pretty average.

drank Ambangulu - Tanzania by Tea Time
6037 tasting notes

backlog from yesterday. This was a great cup of tea yesterday! I am still working on some of my older teas but i’ve found that the few older ones i have left are much tastier when i drink them at home rather than on the go. so i’m trying that. :)

this version/harvest of this tea is still delicious…not sure what it was about that first harvest i had but i’m glad that this tea has only improved since the very first time i had it. Must remember that fall harvests are my preferred harvests :)

drank Traditional Yunnan by RiverTea
6037 tasting notes

backlog from yesterday – it was a surprisingly busy day for me. I’m still enjoying this one, though i don’t think i need to reorder it. I prefer the straight blacks from a vast number of other companies over this one. still a decent cup though!

drank Cacao by Tisano
6037 tasting notes

i actually made just this on it’s own tonight… last cup of the evening. This one makes for a richer, more dark chocolate cup than the herbal infusions version which is a little lighter. Works for me though, since i want my cacao to be strong and delicious and i just can’t get behind herbal infusions anymore with all the trouble friends have had. so yay for a new source of cacao!

It’s a shame, I would really like to try their strawberry version. :(

Sil

tisano has a strawberry version too… if i remember correctly…and mint..

LiberTEAS

I don’t think that they have a strawberry version … at least not yet. I love Tisano. I am sad to hear of the different troubles people have had with Herbal Infusions. But there are so many great tea companies out there, I don’t see the need to support the ones that aren’t up to par.

Cameron B.

I don’t see strawberry right now, but they do have vanilla. Yum. :D

LiberTEAS

I had some of the vanilla last night … it really is yum.

drank Campfire Blend by Verdant Tea
6037 tasting notes

oh campfire blend…your tea is delicious and the aroma protects me from the nastiness of my other half’s farts tonight :) yeah… worst smell ever! On that note…had a cup of this while we watched a show before i pass out. Almost 10pm so i can finally go to bed after being up since 5:30am friday morning. go go work weekends! i think i forgot to restock this one so i might end up needing another verdant order soon… almost through this tin!

whatshesaid

LOL. hilariously candid.

Cameron B.

I feel your pain, Sil… Oh, the farts. :P

Sil

usually i’m the one stinking him out of the room so he was gleeful about the whole thing. me? i just stuck my nose in the tin of tea lol

Cameron B.

Hah! My farts tend to be more noisy than smelly… My boyfriend always laughs at me and calls me a duck. .

Sil

OMG i just died laughing! that’s the running joke around here… he always comments that the duck is back and following me around again!

Cameron B.

Gotta love girl talk.

Marzipan

Trying so hard to not laugh and wake up Karsten!

Sil

haha well glad everyone had a good chuckle :)

smoke scent? check. smooth taste? check. overly smoky? negative! hahaha… so this is one of those lapsangs where a lot of it’s bite is in the aroma. Actually drinking this, it’s clearly a smokey tea but nowhere as smokey as i expected it to be based on smell alone. I’m looking forward to seeing how stacy blends this one with banana! :) glad i was able to pick up a bit of this one in my order!

i was drinking this most of the morning but sadly my taste buds are not cooperating today or maybe it’s my brain. the taste of this one is super familiar and yet, i can’t place it. very frustrating. I’m going to have to order more of this one because it is super delicious, refreshing….yeah that’s all i’ve got for now heh

Matt Warren

You might say the taste of the tea is on the tip of your tongue in more ways than one.

Sil

hahaha yes!

drank Traditional Yunnan by RiverTea
6037 tasting notes

Cup from this morning in between special dark steepings heh. going to be a loooooong day. i still hold that River Tea does fruit teas much better than their black straight teas. that being said, this one isn’t too bad. there’s a maltiness to this one that goes along with the slight bitterness that i kinda like from time to time.

Bio

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.
