missB sent this one my way. it’s an intersting tea…not really sure how i feel about it. I think i’m landing on the side of, thanks but no thanks… this has a quite distinctive taste…and i’d argue that once it cools a bit, it does start to taste more like a stronger alcohol…which, lets be honest, if i’m going for that, i might as well drink the alcohol! still, a unique tea to try. thanks missb!

dexter sent this one my way…this one was a straight up miss for me. It didn’t remind me of black forest cake or taste even remotely like it. It was just sort of there…hanging out. oh well! can’t win them all and i love trying ALL THE TEAS! except for that blergamot one that james is threatening to make and send me… ick.

DAMN FINE MORNING! ok it’s really not…it’s miserable and wet, snowy, cold outside but that just gave me an excuse to work from home and drink tea! I picked this one for the morning because it arrived last night and i’m soooo excited about it. Steeped it for 5 mins, but after tasting this cup, i’m thinking this is going to be good for even longer steeps haha. At 5 mins, there’s a hint of sweet fruitiness to this one that reminds me of the memory of some of the TTC teas that i’ve had. yes that makes sense in my head. The cup was smooth and pleasant and i’m glad i picked up TWO tins of this! woot woot!

Yay! I just tried mine yesterday and I was really impressed (and too impressed by it to stop drinking it and log a note).

Thumbs up for working from home. :D

Stephanie

drank Assam Calcutta Auction by Lupicia
4875 tasting notes

dinosara was kind enough to send me a sample of this one in our swap. It was a tea that i’d looked at picking up in my lupicia order, but for whatever reason didn’t’ (maybe it was sold out) this is a reasonable assam. It’s malty with a little bit of a kick. It’s not as bold as i sometimes like me tea, but had i ordered this, would have had no issue with finishing it off :)

drank Ginger Lime by The Tea Place
4875 tasting notes

i drinked this tonight. Anna made me silly and now i’m not sleepy. and then i was a puppy and an otter and ZOMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! apparently we’re all a bunch of crazies

but anyway…the tea? it smells a lot like lime gelato from David’s tea…which happens to be 1 of 3?4?5? teas i’ve ever really enjoyed enough to buy from David’s. I know..that’s crazy talk around here but i am not a fan of a lot of their blends for the price, sugar added etc….

ANYWAY…. this is very similar but not as sweet, a hint of ginger in the background (not enough though!!!!) and still tasty-licious! thanks missb!

Final Count: 150 booyah! (20 to go….)

TheTeaFairy

Sounds like you had a fun night ;-)

MissB

Leave it to steep way too long, and the ginger gets perfectly awesome. Glad you liked it though!

Sil

Oh yeah it was taaaaasty!

Sami Kelsh

Wheeeeeeeeeee this sounds like the best evening ever.

Anna

You are ALL the animals.

Anna

Today, for example, I have found you to be a snayle.

Anna

Snale?

Anna

Snayle.

Spelling hard.

Sil

i like to think i;m more of a snayle than a snail

Anna

“Snail”? What’s that?

But yes, you’re a snayles for sure.

another tea that i am finishing up tonight and it’s a little sad. I can see wanting more of this in future. there’s just something about the combination that makes me a happy little tiger.

thanks missb!

MissB

Oh, it came in a huge bag from a weird shop at New Westminster Quay. I can definitely get you more anytime.

Sil

Terri HarpLady

Sil, your rules remind me of Ms Theresa’s rules, that’s why me & little terri keep her locked in the closet (of my mind) most of the time ;)

Sil

rules are fun! (especially when you get to break them sometimes)

drank Chocolate Mint by Harney & Sons
4875 tasting notes

soooooo i keep drinking this and forgetting to log it. Mostly because it’s “ok” but nothing out of this world. I think i’ve given up on finding the perfect black base chocolate mint since i have stacy’s herbal – peppermint patty. it seems to be all i need in a mint chocolate tea. That being said, this one from Harney is one of the better crafted minto chocolate blacks, so i’d be likely to land on this one if i had to pick one from the bunches i’ve tried. the chocolate and peppermint balance out well, the base is present but not astringent and it’s nicely done on the whole.

ifjuly

i feel the same way about peppermint patty! but as choc-mint teas go, i do like this one sometimes. it tastes like a thin mint to me. and it’s good as a latte, yum.

I was going to say that there is another listing for this tea with more reviews (http://steepster.com/teas/fauchon/41410-la-mangue) but Dexter hasn’t reviewed it on that listing either. :D

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.
