omgsrsly sent this one my way and in contrast to kaphaa this is super relaxing haha. I really like the lemoney taste of this one and the sweetness that this one has. I’m tempted to cold brew the other half of my sample to see how that turns out, but i’m not sure if i will heh. :)

sooo full of tea though… lol

drank Kapha Organic by TeaGschwendner

so for starters, I accidentally steeped this for about 10-15 mins. Then, i forgot that the reason i’d picked this one was because it’s supposed to be spicy. yeah guess what.. IT IS! jeeebus lol this is spicy holy shit.. like.. omg. ow. i’m going to have to try making this again tomorrow but shorter steep time with some honey. Because maaaaan….Miss B and omgsrsly, i dunno how you drink this! loving it…but HOLY MAN short-er steep times for sure!

Sarsonator

This is an awesome review. You had me at, “this is spicy holy shit.” LOL I really want to try this now!

Sil

haha i’m had this before and it was really nice with a much smaller kick but brewing it for that long kicked my ass haha

Sarsonator

I added it to my wishlist :p

OMGsrsly

I am CACKLING. I was so scared of JustJames’s review, and MissB’s comments about it being kinda spicy, that I only steeped 2 min. I’ll do up to 5, but no more! And I find a bit of honey helps with the heat. It’s great if you’re stuffed up.

Sil

i’m thinking 2-3 is my happy spot lol 20 mins…not so much hahaha

thanks for sharing this one with me VariaTEA this one wasn’t as delicious as i thought it would be. the chai like sort of thing sounded really nice. However something about the flavour combination just isn’t jiving for me. at least i got to try it though! thanks VT!

drank Pu-Erh Blue Lemon by T2
5357 tasting notes

Another one from MissB this is apparently all the joy and fun i get today since once again i am stuck at home with work while my other half gets to go out with friends. I’m so upset i could just sit and cry. I spent all of today working so that i could go out this afternoon and tomorrow and now, thanks to work, i’m now here while our friends have picked up my other half and left. Even if i get away from this testing with technology, it’ll take me 90 mins just to join them so there’s hardly a point at this rate.

This tea is quite nice, though i’m not sure where the blueberry taste it. There’s a lovely lemon taste here, but if i hadn’t read memily’s review i wouldn’t have even known there was supposed to be blueberry here. This is just coming across as a REALLY earthy puerh with lemon flavouring in the background. I really wish the lemon were stronger here, and i can see this being really offputting for anyone who doesn’t like puerh. Thanksfully, though i enjoy puerh and i’m still enjoying this cup, though i wish it was more lemoney…and uh i guess blueberry too since i can’t taste any of that lol

MissB

You got more out of it than I did! :)

Nicole

Aw. That’s awful about work. I hope it gets better.

Bear With Me

Ditch work and teleport over here for cuddles, silly movies, and tea. If I had company I might even find motivation to make cookies or something.

Sil

MissB – hope you’re feeling better :(

So not even worth the overtime guys…. this is the suck.

Sami Kelsh

Aww man. So sorry about work being a butt. kicks work

Marzipan

Sil what do you do?

Sil

marzipan… “whatever they make me” :) lol uh easiest way to describe it is that i’m part of the group that looks after our business banking platform @ a bank.

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.
