i also had this one earlier today as well. I am a fan of this one from norbu. I wish i had the opportunity to drink more of these teas in smaller quantities. it’s one of the few companies i’m hoping will have some sort of sale in november for folks. they do spring clearance and other such things from time to time, i just always forget to check heh

drank Laoshan Black by Verdant Tea

There really isn’t a lot that i can still say about this tea…..after nearly two years of drinking this, it’s probably one of the few teas that i have kept on drinking. not because it’s out of this world, crazy omg amaaaazing….but because it’s reliable, delicious, and always has a good cup!

sick again?

NofarS

I hope that feel better. And boy do I envy you for that two digit count :)

Amariel

Feel better!

Sil

Thanks guys….I think my body just gave up on me after pushing it too hard with work. 70+ hour work weeks back to back and it was done with that nonsense.

Amariel

Goodness, yes. No one should have to do that. HUGS

drank Taurus by Nina's Paris
5597 tasting notes

I had a cup of this in celebration of Nina’s awards at the tea competition. They now have an online store, even if shipping is still a little wonky heh their customer service is great as always though :) and i’m happy to say, more japon is on it’s way to me now! wooo hoo!

So excited! But I’m not allowing myself an order for a week or two at least, considering I just did Butiki and TeaVivre. :P Is the shipping high to Canada?

Sil

no idea. I always ship to my tea mule when carts are not canada friendly lol

NofarS

You have a tea mule? That is so useful. I wish that I had a tea mule :)

Sil

NofarS – if I had lots of money to fly back and forth, I would totally be your tea mule. That said, if there is ever an order you want to place that won’t deliver there, please feel free to use me to get it over to you. :)

drank Sangria by DAVIDsTEA
5597 tasting notes

so this tea SMELLS like sangria. One whiff and i was back in spain with 20 some odd drunk aussies, drinking sangria until 3am. lol brewing this up, i can see why some might not enjoy this, but i think this is one instance where David’s Tea actually came damn close to actual sangria. At least the kind that i’ve had in various places. I can’t say that i’ll want more than my two sil sized cups of this, but it was fun to try :)

drank Creme Brulee by DAVIDsTEA
5597 tasting notes

Another of the samples i picked up from david’s this weekend. Again, not too shabby, though i’ll stick with the version i have from bayswater i think, even if it is a black tea, and a pain to restock lol. this would be good if i needed non caffeinated teas, but i don’t seem to suffer from being kept awake by caffeine in tea, so i’ll pass. it’s a creamy sort of tea and reminds me vaguely of creme brulee but not in an OMG i can’t believe this isn’t creme brulee sort of way! :)

Lariel of Lórien

It’s good with the caramel cream rooibos.

drank Pure Vanilla (organic) by DAVIDsTEA
5597 tasting notes

Figured i need to start working on getting another round of sample sizes ready for me yo work through over the next month, so i’m trying to drink things that are close to being sipdowns but will take at least 2-3 more times drinking it. That includes the few teas i picked up from David’s this past weekend along with my iced pitcher. :)

This one isn’t too shabby. I don’t get a lot of “ROOIBOS” taste in this one, instead the vanilla comes across quite nicely. I think it might be fun to blend this with LB and cacao shells at some point just for funsies :) overall not a bad blend.

i think i finally figured out what it is that i dislike about this tea. It’s the nutty after taste. I love the maple flavour, though it could be even more present…and the base has a great taste to it..but the weird nutty flavour that it also present in this is what i don’t like. it’s like having nuts in brownines…ick. way to interupt the smooth deliciousness of the chocolate…or in this case, maple. i’ll enjoy the last few cups i have but this doesn’t need to be a reorder…which is ok with me since steam is lacking in the online storefront :(

Cameron B.

I agree, no nuts in my brownies! Especially walnuts, ick!

mj

Nutless brownies all around heh

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.
