mmmm tasty morning black tea! This one was sent my way via dexter and it was a tasty one! I am loving the malty, deliciousness of this one today. I had this a few hours ago and i’m so exhausted from last night’s lack of sleep, that really all i can say is “mmmmm goood….”

I tried this one as a cold brew as well, and while i like it a bit more than this hot brewed, i think this is just not the tea for me. Conceptually i really like it, but in execution there’s something slightly off about this one. However, appreciate the share MissB because i love trying all the teas!

drank Lemon & Ginger by Clipper

i tried this cold brew since MissB was kind enough to send me a enough for a couple silsized cups. Cold brew this is even tastier EXCEPT for that sweetness…which i wish i could place and that comes across as really artificial. I figured if it’s not sweetner then it’s some form of the lemon. I think this is pretty tasty though.

Iced 8 min or more

thank you missB! this is another delight that was sent my way. This is a tasty sugar, nougatty tea. I think i’d prefer this as a black base tea but on the whole it’s a delicious tasting tea that was really nice with dinner + fringe.

Oh man..also…i had the best lemon bluberry cake today with our lunch out…i’m still dreaming about it..lemon custard thingy on top…blueberry layers…fluffy white cake..meringue on the top sorta…soooooo good.

Final Count: 156 (at least 6 teas in tomorrow’s sipdown!)

sipdown! but this will be back in my cupboard in future…oh yes. Not as much tea drinking today as i am pooped from the walking we did today. I was breaking in new shoes as well in prep for our treking about vancouver so i’m ready for bed. this might be one of my favourite oolongs….which is saying a lot since oolongs are oo-wrong!

this was my out and about tea today. Seriously, best weekend in a long time. My other half was off so we slept in, had breakfast together and then went for a 5 hours walk. Just out enjoying the sun, the day, spending time together being “out.” I got to buy some pants for walking/being active AND we may have found a writing desk that we can use in the house so that i’m not at the dining room table when i work from home with cords all over the place. We went out for lunch, stopped at the liquor station and had a grand ol’ day. And this was my tea for doing it with. :)

another tea from dexter that i had waaaay earlier in the day. It was quite tasty, though i remember wishing the nutty taste was just a little stronger. Overall though, another nice tea from bluebird!

this is one of the teas that missB sent my way. It smells quite lovely with the lemon and the addded spice. Drinking it up though, was a different sort of experience. There wasn’t as much lemon as i figured there might be and the spice left a weird taste in my mouth. I’m cold brewing the rest of my sample to see if that makes a difference in the taste:)

puerh from this morning courtesy of dexter not a lot to say about this one beyond it’s really earthy and not quite the sort of puerh I love. it was tasty, but the earthiness was a little overwhelming in the initial steeps. It mellows out!

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.
