drank Superstar by RiverTea
4825 tasting notes

dexter sent me this one off my wishlist and i proooobably should have cold brewed it. but i was really excited to have more non caffeine teas in my house..plus i totally read the label as SUPER STAN! and i was like hmmm let’s go see what makes him super. this is a nice enough tea, but there is less flavour POP than i want there to be. I’m getting more of the honeybush than i want, though the flavouring that is coming through is quite nice. I think this is probably one of those cold brew teas…nice, but better cold :) thanks dex!

Final Count: 150 (2 more packages inbound + 4 purchased teas…)

Isn’t it funny how, once you get a name in your head, correctly or incorrectly, it just stays that way? :)

dexter sent this to me and uh it was what i managed to sip on most of the afternoon. this was a really tasty one….and something likely to end up on my list again when i order from tealux again. Dexter keeps finding little happy spots with them that i like. This might be one for you to try out cavo!

Dexter

In general I’ve been happy with Tealux’s straight teas (flavors are hit and miss for me). Happy that you liked this one. :))

Another tea from Sami Kelsh Sadly this one didn’t taste like much of anything, but to be fair i DID accidentally steep it for like uh 30 mins. What was nice was that it wasn’t biutter…it just tasted like an every day cup of boring black tea, taken best with milk and sugar :) still though, points for not being a cup i had to dump, if a little boring :)

Sami Kelsh

Oh, poor wee Jamie :( I swear to Gosh when you steep him for no more than like 4 minutes he tastes like a gently oatmeal-scented cuddle. Sorry!

But if it’s any consolation, I have a cup of oolong sitting directly beside me right now, and I forgot it was there for like 2 hours.

drank Doctor Who - Liz Shaw by Adagio Teas
4825 tasting notes

This is another from my hepatite swap with Sami Kelsh Yes, i AM trying to drink them all today so i don’t have to increase my cupboard too much with the teas from Sami and Dexter lol. I quite liked this one. Sadly, i had it a while ago so it’s not fresh in my mind, but that is usually the case when i’m trying to get my tea drinking on, and work decides to pester me. While i don’t think i’ll ever rate an adagio tea above 85, this one is up there. I like how the tastes in this one blend together AND i’m not getting that underlying “hey guess what? i’m an adagio black tea” taste happening. :)

plus… the peppercorn addition was kinda fun and made this tea a little more interesting to me! :)

Sami Kelsh

Heehee, whoops cupboard additions! But glad you enjoyed this one!

DeliriumsFrogs

JustJames

drank MojiTEA by Bluebird Tea Co.
4825 tasting notes

Another one from my hepatite swap with Sami Kelsh This one is rather tasty. I know mojito’s have mint in them, but i feel like this is the wrong mint for this tea. It makes me want the mint to not be in the tea lol.

Edit: work got in the way of me finishing this review… long story short, this is really tasty, but i want the mint to be less present, or be a different type of mine. I really like the citrusy flavour of this one quite a bit.

Sami Kelsh

To be fair, I prefer tea over mojitos, so I can’t even really compare if this lives up to its name in that respect :p

Sil

haha i can! :)

I participated in the Hepatite swap this past month and yesterday i received my tea from my swap buddy. I’m not sure whether i’m more excited about getting my teas, or the thought of my swap buddy getting my teas. Heh…not that i want to spoil anything, but those of you who have um gotten tea from me, know a little of what she’s in store for hahaha.

Sami Kelsh sent this one my way and that’s awesome because it was on my wishlist of things to try someday! Mostly because of her review haha. this is delicious…delicious and creamy and man i would pick this one up again! The vanilla is there but there is also a cookie like quality to this that is so very tasty. Thank you so much Sami!

OMGsrsly

I feel a little sorry for your swap buddy’s cupboard. Just a little. ;)

Sami Kelsh

Yay, cookie goodness! Oh, I hoped you’d like this one! So glad your teas arrived safely :3

drank Yi Fu Chun Black Tea by Yezi Tea
4825 tasting notes

mmmmmm dexter sent this my way. My other half did a sneaky thing and picked up my tea yesterday but didn’t give it to me until today – he left it on the table for me to find in the morning since he knew i was working from home today. Doctor appointment this morning so it’s easier to go there and come back home than go all the way downtown. This is another yummy tea from yezi! I am digging the sweetness that it in this cup along with a sort of malty finish. mostly though, it’s just good. like nearly every yezi tea i’ve tried. nom nom nom thanks dexter!

drank Black Pearl by Mandala Tea
4825 tasting notes

oh bother. It’s official. these are finally finished up, out of my cupboard, possibly never to be seen again. sad. but happy. but sad. Seriously though. Favourite pearls ever. there’s just something deliciously wonderful about how malty and rich and yummy they are. If garett ever finds some again, they will be insta-buy. even if they won’t be exactly the same.

edit: also drinking this so early in the morning means i can resteep it aaaallll day! oh happy day!

Sami Kelsh

Feelings! These sound so good! I am vicariously feeling your pain.

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.
