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.

mmm this was a tasty cup! Thank you Cavo! I quite enjoyed this earlier today. This was a cherry vanilla tea to me, which i guess is good since that’s what it’s trying to be, along with some cinnamon. I didn’t get much in the way of the cinnamon, but the cherry and vanilla left a juicy impression in my mouth that made for an enjoyable cup of tea today!

thanks cavo! this one was sort of meh for me. The ingredients sort of blended into a cremy non distinct sort of flavour. The apple came out a little more as it cooled off, but hot this was not something i was dying to drink. Also, my poor poor cupboard is so exploded right now….

Cavocorax

Yep! Let it go away! :P Sip, sip, sip!

Cavocorax Spoiled me with samples of her custom adagio blends which makes me super happy. Not because i think that i’ll love any of them but because i love trying ALL the teas, and maybe some of them will be nice enough. :) I had this one very early and so long ago. What i remember is that this was sort of an average cup of tea with some cinnamon. I’m trying hard not to look at the ingredients beyond black/green/rooibos tea so that i can really see what flavours i taste when i drink them :)

TheTeaFairy

I have faith in you Sil, if someone on this earth can try “all the teas” I’m pretty sure it’s you :-)

Sil

hahahaha

Anna

I’m with TTF.

Sil

i’m almost at 1650 different teas logged :)

Anna

Sil-zilla!

Sil

on the plus side.. my tea drinking is so totally getting interrupted right now with MOAR stupid work problems (5th one today….) but this is keeping me laughing

i had this first thing in the morning which seems so long ago that i can’t even think. I was hoping to get some tea in to me today but it’s been one thing after another with work today. I did however get to enjoy this cup again courtesy of Cavocorax this morning with my bagel, the only thing i’ve managed to eat today! soo tasty! and i still have another cup to enjoy later :) thanks cavo!

backlog from yesterday. This one was sent to me by terri and she got it from teaexplorer. I have to say, this is a really nice tea. I love that the smoek isn’t super intense and, as with all my smokey teas, i tried it with maple syrup. The result was a delicious tasty cup that i gulped down and was finished before long.

Final Count Yesterday: 193 (thanks to Cavocorax and VariaTEA)

VariaTEA

I have faith that you will get down to 140 by the end of the month. You have magic “sipdown” powers.

Sami Kelsh

Smoke and maple syrup? Ooh, get in.

Sil

i hope so variaTEA…today is not condusive to me getting anything done. even though i AM at home. ugh

Sami..it’s the best.

drank Chocolate & Strawberry Puer by Lupicia
4673 tasting notes

mmmm another backlog from yesterday. I decided to open this one up since it’s been ages since i had it and i wanted to see if i still love it. and i do. :) I like the subtleness of the strawberry flavour and how well it blends with both the chocolate and the puerh. It really is just a great cup of flavoured puerh :) i’ll have to try it as a latte before i finish it up, as i think that might be pretty tasty!

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.
