this one really makes me happy at night. it’s like a kick in the pants sort of tea but yet not. Enjoying this one while working our way through season 4 of fringe and catching up on hannibal. This week is going to be a doozy so we’re trying to have a quiet evening. I love the chocolate and spicy kick to this tea. There are some really great gems out there from companies…you just have to have awesome friends who share them with you :)

Final Count: 182 [70 samples = fake cupboard at 112 with a week and a half to go! 1 tea from October left in my cupboard and 4 from December…not too shabby]

drank Raspberry by Tea Desire
5241 tasting notes

Roswell Strange sent this one my way and i opted to try it with dinner. this is a rather pleasant raspberry tea, and i’ll even forgive that it’s an oolong :) I think this would be really nice in summer as a cold brew given the way that the rasberry flavour seems to be coming out in this one. I had a plesant time with this one, reading on the balcony in the sun :)

VariaTEA

Cold brewed, Roswell Strange and I both got coffee flavor from this which is quite strange.

Roswell Strange

You’re thinking of a different Raspberry blend, VariaTEA. The Raspberry tea with a white base and wool flowers from Cuppa’T was definitely the one with strong coffee notes – this one is buttery and pastry like.

VariaTEA

My bad. Nevermind :P

drank Latte Macciato by Tea Desire

Another tea from roswell strange that i’m finally getting around to trying. this one wasn’t half bad, though i prefer the versions that i’ve had that were not caffeine free aka black tea base! I find with a macciato sort of taste i want the depth of a black tea base. that being said this was still pretty tasty with the coffee bean coming through in the brew. I probably should have tried it as a latte but didn’t. heh. I wasn’t as creamy as i would have liked it to be. thanks though roswell! this was fun to try!

Roswell Strange

This one isn’t caffeine free; despite being a rooibos base.

Sil

shhhh it’s close enough. 1-2 beans hardly count :)

Angel sent this one my way and i’m afraid it’s lost on me. I found this was my least favourite of the greens because there wasn’t much of a taste that i could discern and i wasn’t blown away like i was with the dragonwell. Now, that being said, take my review with a grain of salt as i’m really much more of a black tea lover. I’m glad that i got the chance to try it though since you never know what you’ll love. :) thanks so much for sharing angel!

drank Capri by Harney & Sons

thanks for sending this one my way boychik i had a first cup of this a while back but forgot to log it or track it. so today i figured it was time to finish it off and write a proper note. Funnily enough, i get a bunch of fig taste of this one, but not much lemon like others have gotten. what i do like about this, is how the base blends with the fig. It’s a rather tasty tea and was nice alongside of my banana bread :) thanks boychik!

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.
