5/day for 3 days – having watched your tasting notes for the last year or so – I’m voting on probably. You probably will, and if not you will be “close enough”. :))

i kind of like the idea of bruce banner being green with a side of chamomile giggling This isn’t a bad blend, but mostly it’s full of chamomile. This is a very calming blend and a nice almost end cap to the day. Relaxing and drinking this with my other tea and watching a bit of tv before tucking in to bed. yay for the weekend… (oh and thank you shmiracles for this one!)

Does the earl grey come through in this at all? The combination of earl grey and chamomile intrigues me.

Sil

not to me.. and i’m not a fan of blergamot lol

Sami Kelsh

I am so happy that blergamot is a word now. My better half says that earl grey tastes like dishwater. Strangely, I haven’t wanted to drink plain earl grey in at least 10 years, but there are a few blends with it that I’m fond of. But blergamot just makes me giggle so much!

Sil

i just have to say..if in 25 years it’s in the dictionary…i will laugh like there’s no tomorrow ;)

drank Natural Cranberry by Assam Tea Company
4729 tasting notes

this was another really lovely tea from missB I’m not sure that i’d call this cranberry, but then i wonder if that’s because i’m so used to cranberry “cocktail.” Either way this is a really nicely blended, fruity tea. there’s little bitterness here and it’s just a lovely cup overall. I’m looking forward to trying more assam company’s teas in the future!

thank you for sending this my way MissB this is a really decadent rich chocolatey blend. A little sweetner and milk and it was a very rich dark chocolate drink…similar to hot chocolate but not.

drank Pumpkin Milkshake 2.0 by Butiki Teas

let me tell you…i hit the sweet spot with this one tonight. I went to take a sip and it was like WOAH pumpkin…so i added just a teeny tiny bit of sweetner to this and it is to die for. this is a deliciously pumpkin spiced creamy cup of goodness.

last cup of this..farewell creamy eggnog. Maybe we’ll meet again in the fall when it calls for creamier delicious times. But for now, it’s summer.. MOVE OVER! the fruit is coming! :)

i thought that i’d like this one more. it has a number of ingredients that i like and seemed like it would be a fun tasting blend. sadly, it’s pretty much coming across as a minty green. I’m not getting any of the other flavours :( Shmiracles sent this my way and i’m glad for it…even if i know nothing about this fandom, they’re fun to try! :)

i had another cup of this one a few hours ago, and sadly don’t remember much from it. I’ve been distracted trying to get organised with “real life” with a bunch of last minute things that need to be organised. It’s thankfully almost time to just draw a bath and relax before trying to get an early night…i hope.

Sami Kelsh

Silly real life, getting in the way of tea. Hope you managed to chill out and rest early!

mmmmmm so i’ve had this sample in my cupboard from gracebtlb for a while now. Not because i haven’t wanted to drink it, but because i try to take the time to sit and really focus on the puerh, at least the first time i have it haha. I have to say that this one shocked me with just how much i loved it. I’ve been pretty much drinking it since this morning – in between cups of other teas. This will be an order for sure in future!

I didn’t really take notes while drinking this as i was really enjoying it. but i did give it two rinses to start, as suggested to me by grace. After that i just kept adding 15 sec or so each steep.
-earthy; bold; smooth; a little sweet; leathery; sweet; sort of roasty…kinda

Just a really happy tea for me today in rainy ville. I need to start setting aside time every weekend for puerh!

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.
