drank Golden Monkey Black Tea by Teavivre

I have to say that this is another tea that keeps growing on me. Every time i have it, i seem to like it a little better and it gets a little more delicious. TOday it came across as particularly chocolatey and malty and made for an awesome cup at work.

drank French Breakfast by Mariage Frères

sipdown…soo sad. I’ve finished the tin of this that i picked up in december and it’s a sad day. The more i’ve had this, the more it’s grown on me, though i think american breakfast is still the winner. This will go on the wishlist for one of those days that i order from MF…july? :)

cteresa

July sounds like an excellent idea, go for it! I want more American Breakfast as well.

Sil

mmmmm american breakfast…

much take 5 mins to catch up on backlogs! It’s March 31st! eep!

I had a lovely cup of this in the morning as a latte to start my day off. It’s going to be a long week and i needed today to go well. Overall, I likely won’t pick this one up again, but getting through the rest of this won’t be bad.

drank Ginger & Lemon Myrtle by Lupicia
4729 tasting notes

mmmmmmm really love this one! Every time i have it, it grows on me, though in usual form, more ginger please! haha. I really should try cold brewing this at least once before it’s all finished up. I think next order from Lupicia will have to have more random herbals like this one, thrown in to the mix….especially if i can convince Cavo to keep sharing haha :)

Edit: Final count 144. One more day…4 sipdowns is totally doable, unless work keeps me there late. I will be most angry if it does . Especially since my April goal is going to be even MORE challenging! 15 teas instead of 10…or 20 if i’m feeling ambitious…which i know doesn’t sound like a lot, coming from me…but i’ve got at least 3 orders happening in addition to 3 swaps that will be incoming at mininum. heh

drank Orzo by Lupicia
4729 tasting notes

mmm 4 teas left until my oldest tea will be from September! woot woot! Sadly, it’ll take a while before i’m within 6 months of my oldest tea but progress is being made! I finished off the last of this tonight and it was a tasty cup, though i still prefer the caramel and honey one for the added notes of flavour that are going on with it. :)

VariaTEA

Have you tried the strawberry orzo? Also, yay for your oldest tea being from September!

Sil

I will be stealing a cup of strawberry orZo from kitenna’s package haha joint order and I didn’t go in on that one because I really hate artificial strawberry…wanted to try it first :)

VariaTEA

Makes sense. I shall have to see what you think of it when you get around to trying it then.

mmmmmm tea for laaaate dinner lol. We had a late lunch at the mall so now we’re having late dinner. I figure about the time we roll out the pizza, i should be good for switching to the few herbals i wanted to have tonight. I didn’t manage to drinkg nearly as much tea this weekend as i wanted to, but that’s ok. One more day left in the month! woot woot!

I’m not sure what sherlock’s experiment should taste like, but this is a tasty blend of black tea and puerh. The cinnamon and spice doesn’t over power the tea and while i can’t taste the ginger (there’s never enough ginger in most teas to suit me…) I can tell that there’s a hint of orange in this. Overall a satisfying blend.

Another from shmiracles her swap is what has both saved me in my epic quest to get to 140 for april and caused much of the issue in not being there already haha. The nice thing is, once i get to 140, i’ll still have a few of her samples left over to make a quick bump down a little lower while i continue to work on some of my older teas. :)

This may have sprinkles in it..but man this is a whole lot of lapsang in a cup. I’m not getting much in the way of anything else…but i’m ok with that because it’s kinda what i wanted. haha a little splash of maple and i’m a happy camper :)

edit: 3900 tasting notes…I think i’ll get to 4k before i hit my steepsterverary again haha. May not hit my goal of 2k teas tried though…

Nicole

Anything I can send along to help the 2k goal? Or is it time that you are short on? I can’t imagine you being short on tea… :)

Sil

haha 300 new teas in 3 months :) mostly i just need to keep swapping and trying new things for fun….i will try all the teas!

Nicole

Well, my cupboard is up to date so feel free to request any you haven’t tried. And I will probably be adding to that stash after payday this next week… :)

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.
