Finished this one off as a latte tonight. Still delicious but i’m done with it. I’d maybe pick some up again in a year or so if it comes back, but for now i’m satisfied with being done with it :) Creamy rootbeer float, latte style.

drank Vanilla and Pear by Ariel Tea
7534 tasting notes

getting much more pear and vanilla this time around, but i’m also getting a taste that reminds me of the memory of black licorice? sadly the ingredients just say natural flavours so no idea what they put in here. It’s a suble pear..not a sweet juicy one, and the vanilla is nice…but the taste is distracting.

this one comes from omgsrsly as well. I figured since i was doing a few lower temp teas, i might as well toss this one in to the mix. I’m not sure how i feel about this one in the grand scheme of things. It reminds me a little bit of white night, but doesn’t seem as flavourful or sweet. I’ll have to play with this one a little more to see if i can get it to behave for me!

I liked this one but I got sick of it ;(

Sil

You can get it so it’s like a white but with (nice) sourness. Ive ended up pinching it out like my whites so not sure of the amount… Leave it to cool a bit and it tastes better. I do mine at 80-90c 3mins then leave it till its not burning

Sil

sounds like a plan for next time. thanks!

So i laughed a lot when i found this one from omgsrsly in my bag of goodies. Both her and dexter couldn’t drink this one so they sent it along to me. I of course, have saved some so that i can send it along to my tea sister for fun! To be fair, this one doesn’t hit quite the wrong note with me as it did omg and dex. To me, this smelled like carrots that are just starting to go bad. Not sure why it was specifically carrots, but that was my view. This is a really….weird tasting puerh. I haven’t tasted anything like this one before, but i also didn’t hate it straight up. it was just weird.

That brings to mind that aged black tea from TTC, which reminded me of carrots & beets that had been left in the root cellar a little too long.

i have been thoroughly enjoying this one from omgsrsly Nice to have this one back in my cupboard to remind me why i need to place another mandala order sooooooon! especially with new teas coming in the near future that are for those of us who love special dark. Not much to say on this one that hasn’t already been said. delicious. wonderful. yay for tea and tea friends!

Dexter

whoa whoa whoa – “new teas coming in the near future that are for those of us who love special dark”??? What do you know that I don’t? Why am I not informed of these things?

Sil

haha i asked garett what lovers of special dark would think of his new tea on FB. he indicated that there are new teas coming that special dark lovers may appreciate. it won’t be SD..but here’s hoping its close to being as delicious

Dexter

OK then I shouldn’t be looking at the free one oz til end of Oct. I should be waiting for new teas….. see this is important information :))

Sil

this tea is all over the place. popcorn, apple bits, toffee, black tea, oolong lol… but it smells delicious. in the grand scheme of things, this isn’t bad but it’s nothing spectacular. The flavour comes across as an almost typical tofee flavoured tea. I’m not getting anything new from the popcorn, though there’s a hint of sweetness in the background of this one that makes the tea a little lighter than your usual black toffee tea. Not too shabby but not intensely amazing either :)

Nichole

You had me with popcorn and toffee!

Sil

haha

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.
