drank Baozhong Oolong Tea by Oollo Tea

Another tea from VariaTEA always nice trying new teas…even if they are green oolongs! This has a fabulous aroma to it, though it ands squarely in that oolong range that i don’t love. However, ignoring that, i can see this being a nice vegetal oolong for those that like that taste.

VariaTEA

Haha I don’t remember owning half of these teas

Sil

well that’s ok :) I’m enjoying them haha

mmmm thank you keychange for a revisit with this tea. I should have made it in latte form but it was nice to just have a dark and delicious cup today on this cool afternoon. :) It’s nice to revisit old favourites

keychange

I gave this to you? LOl I can’t even remember all that was in that bag. Glad you liked it!

Sil

this one came to me via cavocorax and isn’t half bad. I don’t generally enjoy darjeelings…they’re like fake black teas to me that taste like greens and oolongs – not my favourite. however, since i’ve had a few in my time that i have liked, i’m always willing to try new ones. This one isn’t half bad. It’s got that green taste to it, but it’s not drying or bitter and i drank all of it! thanks cavo!

my other half better appreciate me. We got him a bike before the wedding, now he’s getting a car and he volunteered to dog sit for 4 days…at our place. sheesh! lol the things i let him get away with. Finished off this tea today and it was an enjoyable cup. Still have a bunch of sipdowns i want to try and get through over the next three days. but i’m glad that some of those cups will be tasty cups of tea like this one.

minty, vanilla goodness. nothing super special about this one beyond the name… for those of you that know helen, she’s still made because she doesn’t have a new crown, but she’s making up for it by wearing a helmet now. special helmet for a special dino. enjoyed this tea courtesy of missB :)

drank Flaming Prince Charming by T-We Tea

tried this one today..not sure if it’s the age of the tea or how i brewed it but it was largely flavourless with a hint of coconut. Sad really. I’ll hold off rating just in case, as the combination to me sounded like something that could be super tasty.

drank White Nectarine by DAVIDsTEA
7475 tasting notes

Picked this one up from either keychange or variaTEA sorry ladies, i can’t remember who. To me this is a nectarine fail. This doesn’t taste like nectarine at all. it’s not a BAD tasting tea, but this isn’t what i think of when i bite into a juicy nectarine. Oh well, can’t win them all!

drank Vintage Violet by Petali Teas

Another from VariaTEA – this one was almost a win for me. The fruit side of this tea is good, but i am not a fan of “violet” flavouring. The tea base works well with this combination though, so it’s a win that way – it’s just not a tea for me, so holding off rating it as well :)

drank Choco Shou by Camellia Sinensis

mmm a small bit of this from variaTEA was a nice opportunity to revisit this one. I still prefer it as a latte, but it’s a nice cup of tea on this dreary sort of morning. …er afternoon haha. So glad that it’s a long weekend AND my other half has at least 2 of the 3 days off! woot woot! Maybe we’ll get a bike ride in this weekend.

mmmmm another delicious tea from Nicole I am really loving this one today. This is a really great malty and yet not bready, sort of tea. I don’t want to call it sweet, because that’s the wrong way to describe it…but there is a lightness and almost sweet like quality buried in the malt. thanks so much for sharing nicole!

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.
