tired and long day tomorrow..so keeping it quick tonight..i hope. This was early morning delicious tea and it was nice to revisit. Bumped the rating up a little because it as much tastier this time around than i remembered….that being said, i tried this a long time ago, and i know my tastes have changed.

drank Aquarius by Nina's Paris

thank you VariaTEA (and Nina’s Paris) for letting me try this one. Sadly, this one falls a little short of expectations because i largely get a sense of creamy rooibos from this one. If i squint and think really hard, i can taste the mint ish…so maybe this one just needs to steep a lot more. or be overleafed :) Either way it’s not a bad tea because i like the roibos that Nina’s uses, so i’m ok with it but i prefer others that they have more.

VariaTEA

I got a lot of mint and cacao. I wonder how much leaf was in the cup they made me compared to the sample they gave.

So this one? THIS one is delicious… i find this caramel cream preferable to the version of caramel rooibos from Damman Freres. VariaTEA was awesome and sent this one my way.

Fun facts? This puts me at 1650 different teas tried since i joined steepster. It also brings my final count today to 204 teas after being pushed to 215 today after starting at 193. this also marks my 3807 tasting note….in uh 1 year, 8 months and uh 10 days. true story yo.

Cavocorax

OMG. So how much did you sipdown today?

Sil

uh…11 i guess?

Fjellrev

Good god, Sil. That’s more sipdowns than I tend to accomplish in two weeks.

Sil

hahaha… but cavo gave me single cup samples! so it’s like cheating

Sil

uh and by single cups..i mean sil single cups? :)

keychange

You’re friggin unstoppable!

keychange

11!! I don’t think I’ve accomplished that many sipdowns in six months!

VariaTEA

I AM AT 204 TOO!! Yay!! Also, I like this one too (it helps that it is my sign :P). If you want more, I am always happy to share.

Cavocorax

Haha. You’ve trained me well! :D

Cavocorax

Those Nina’s teas are trouble. The ones I split with tea smell so good that I’m immediately thinking about my next order. An order I’m not allowed to make until 90 more sipdowns… :P

Sil

I will place an order in April…..it will be for 4 tins from a&d. I’m going to try not to allow myself any other orders beyond that unless I get down to my oldest teas being within 6 months.

Cavocorax

4 tins of A&D is an awful lot of tea! (But not awful tea. :P) That’s so tempting… I need to empty more tins first though.

Anna

Those NUMBERS.

drank Under the Mango Tree by Nina's Paris
4669 tasting notes

mmmm this one was sent my way by variaTEA and i am a fan! black mango…heeeyyoooo! what’s up. shakin’ that… yeah ok…clearly, i’m a little off the rails tonight. but this tea? it’s a really smooth, deliciously mango yummy smelling party in my mouth sort of tea right now. soooo YAY!

keychange

heeeelllll yaaaaaaah mango party!

VariaTEA

Yay! I am glad you liked it!! Apparently it is from their Japan line of teas. I am a fan too. I might have a cup…hmmmm…but there is so many swap teas to try.

Sil

yeah… i’m having that problem with a few of my teas haha. I’m trying to find a balance between old teas and getting through the MOUNTAIN OF SWAP TEAS! harder still ’cause there are a lot of adagio teas and i have to break between those or they start to all taste the same heh

VariaTEA

I have been trying to balance caffeine-free and caffeinated but that has gone out the door a bit in favor of trying new things.

Sil

i don’t have enough herbals etc… and most of my swaps = black teas haha

VariaTEA

I am in the same boat which is making the balance particularly difficult. Hence why I sort have tossed the idea out the window for today.

bad steepster! bad! it make me click on the review button a bunch but never popped open the windo to make a note..and then i had to go and delete 1092382109382 blank entries for this tea.

I think i’m a little spzy right now because i saw the name of this tea and the first thing that popped into my head was that song… "comet, it makes your mouth turn green….comet…it tastes like gasoline… comet,…..da da da da…s a lot of YES to this tea :)

Cavocorax

That’s better than what I had- I sorta lost my note completely? And now I don’t remember if I liked it. :P

YUMMY! BLUUUUUUUUUE BERRY! I’m taking 5 mins in between my work calls to try and catch up with the teas i had tonight before work decided to be stupid. I want this week to be over damnit! Plus my cupboard was exploded by everyone this week (shmiracles, variaTEA, Keychange, Cavocorax…) so i’m not going to make my goal of 140 this month, but i also did NOT make any purchases this month (so haaard!!!) so i’m still doing well…

i like this tea. id even purchase it again because it’s dr who…and blueberry and tasty. so there.

Cavocorax

Yay! Glad you liked it. I nearly missed getting it to you, and it was one of the ones I really enjoyed. (If I drink too many Adagio at a time I get them all mixed up in my head…)

Sil

i am with you on the mix up with too many drunk at once

thanks cavo stupid work is interupting my tea drinking…and because i’m drinking adagio teas, they’re all blending together into a giant mush of BLACCCKKKKKKKK MUTED TEAS
i remember thinking this one wasn’t too bad. but i like the other one i drank with it better. mmmm blueberries (in the other tea)

Cavocorax

Oh, I should have kept reading. Yep – Adagio equals a giant blend of forgettable teas. I really have to make sure I update my spreadsheet with those so I remember which ones are worth buying again.

Grrrrrr computer make me mad. I’ll fix this review, but mostly it was a fairly bland cup for me, which made me a sad panda. :(

TeaKlutz

That first sentence made me chuckle, if only because I’ve (we’ve all) been there sooooo many times.

Anna

Slap the ’puter! SLAP IT.

Sil

it likes that anna….

Sil

also… this eta makes me want someone to make a “brave little toaster” tea at adagio…like a whole series of “things from our childhood” series of blends…

Anna

Of course you’d have a pervputer, Sil. Of course.

I think it’s cool that kids today have more of a shared experience and more of a global kid culture – my generation is generally so completely lost when it comes to that. The what toaster? Dr… Xeus? Huh?

Sil

don’t for get jem and the holograms… and the misfits…their songs WERE better. it always makes me sad that no one knows captain power and the soldiers of the universe… my dad and i used to watch that every week together before mom woke up…at like 7am on saturdays

Anna

…I LOVED Jem!!! I’m the only Swede I know who does, though, it was on some weird cable channel.

Anna

I need a Jem-themed party in my near future. The outfits.

Sil

oh man…yes!

Thank you cavo! My internet is having issues driving me nuts. I’ve lost the tasting note on a few things now. This one probably needed to steep a little longer to bring out more of the flavours. Over all still a tasty cup, but not my favourite.

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.
