drank Yu Lu Yan Chai by Verdant Tea (Special)
6407 tasting notes

I pulled this one out of the cupboard yesterday as well. I am STILL not a fan of goji berries in my chai but as long as they’re there, i can pick them out without too much fuss. I still prefer loashan black chai to this one, but this is also a really tasty one. it’s nice to have both back in my cupboard to get me through the rest of winter – which is the only time i really love drinking chai. :)

Final Count yesterday: 103 (because i didn’t add the teas i received from Cavocorax yet…)

I love goji berries but they sound like a really weird addition to a chai.

So the downside to loving this tea is that i am starting to slip in to hoarding mode this month…because i know that come the end of January i’ll be doing a final count and then start working my way down to 50 teas in my cupboard for the end of the year….in order to DO that i need to buy less tea, and drink everything in my cupboard. BUT because the dolllar is so terrible this year, i’m really going to be focusing on ordering from canadian tea companies whenever possible. and this is NOT one of those companies :( oh well…at least i have about 90g left… heh

HAH, I love it. Hoarding mode… btw 90 grams left! ;P

drank After Dark by Steam Tea House

I also had this tea last night, brewed hot…and it made me realise how much i love this tea when it’s cold brewed, steeped in part apple juice. LOL I vastly prefer it that way for that sweet, sour tang. Just trying to help keep my system primed and ready to keep fighting all the sick that is going on at work these days.

Anlina

Is this note supposed to be on Elderberry then?

Sil

hahaha yes

Sil

apparently steepster didn’t like me multitasking lol

OMGsrsly

Haha! Oops. :)

drank After Dark by Steam Tea House

mmmmm i’ve been bad lately…drniking tea, not doing tasting notes….generally i’m just really tired these days. Wedding planning and vacation planning are exausting. Plus work has slowed down, so i find that i’m bored and apathetic at work so i’m trying to make projects to keep my entertained lol

I have had this a number of times since omgsrsly restocked me. It’s still going strong in terms of my general like for this tea so that makes my a happy camper :)

OMGsrsly

Yay! Also, cold steeped in apple juice? That sounds weird I must try it. :)

Sil

i think you meant to put this comment in my elderberry note…i can’t imagine steeping afer dark in apple juice lol

Sil

i see what steepster/me did there… lol thanks to anlina!

OMGsrsly

Lol. You had TWO after dark notes! So I commented on the one in front of my face. :)

I need to drink more herbals at night… so i pulled this one out at dinner. I have a tin full left and i’d like to actually work on getting through it over the winter. It’s like a bit of summer in my cup :)

Final Count: 103

This was evening tea while we finished up season 3 of game of thrones. I like this tea in winter..it’s warm and comforting and makes me happy smelling it.

My BF and I are also watching Season 3 of Game of Thrones. We are getting addicted!

I feel like this would be perfect with Game of Thrones (cue the soundtrack! lol)

6407 tasting notes

mmmm root beer float latte tonight while i wait on dinner. I really do love this tea as a latte…so glad bear with me encouraged me to try it that way… nearly done with my 100g which makes me sad but it’ll be back…someday lol

Bear With Me

Just don’t make popsicles or you’ll really miss it ;)

Dexter

I have about 25g of it if you would like me to toss it into the box I’m packaging up for you…. (I also have about 30g of Della Terra’s if you like that one too)

Sil

dex… if you really want to get rid of tea then sure.
I’ve never tried the della terrra version so no idea how that one tastes

Dexter

I just want to find happy homes for some of my teas – Will toss some in the box for you….

this + a splash of maple is a good sold every day tea for me. It’s not my all time favourite A&D tea but it makes me happy. and it’s not fussy, which is ever better!

boychik

Holiday i tried (Stephanie shared a sample) is amazing. better than Octoberfest or Red hawk tail

Sil

REALLY? wow.. because i am a fan of oktoberfest and redtail….(and tiger and this one…) I’m super glad i ordered a tin then anyway

boychik

you did ? i dont think you will be disappointed ! when i tried, did precisely 3g 8oz 200F 3min. PERFECTION

Sil

yeah i bugged them for a shipping discount for canada and they gave it to us lol so i had to order

OMGsrsly

Thank you Sil! (My mom would thank you too if she knew. :) )

Sil

What can i say? If we ask, all they can say is no. heh

caile

I ordered because of that discount too – couldn’t resist! ;-)

I had this again this morning, added a little cacao and it was still nothing spectacular. The rest of this is off to Cavo in trad since she’ll love it more than me. if there was ever just a version without the oolong, i might be all over it….

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.
