sipdown! enjoyed the mystery that Cavo and i ended up with, though neither of us recalls how/why lol. Don’t need to pick this up again, but it was enjoyable while i had it :)

need to bump the rating up on this one….realised that i have about 18oz of damn fine teas in my cupboard that i haven’t really started drinking. Not that i want to burn through them or anything, but it’s silly to let them linger when i know i can get more :) Added a splash of maple to this one today and it was the perfect blend today for me. Maybe tomorrow i’ll pull out the tiger and revisit that friend :)

i wanted something sweet today with my other teas, so i pulled this one out…essentially just because i know i have another 50g bag of this waiting to be opened, so finishing off this one won’t kill me haha. I really enjoy this tea…the sweet vanilla/caramel taste, with a nice base of black and green…yes pls!

vanilla citrus spice yesterday and today, the plain tea. :) still not as in love with this as i originally was – i blame a different harvest, but we’ll see how the new harvest goes that i picked up once i get through the last of this older harvest :)

another backlog from yesterday….i have enjoyed this one while i have it and have maybe another cup or so left. With a splash of honey, it’s jsut the right balance of citrus and sweet for me :)

Interesting – I keep wanting to try this one but given that it contains Valerian, I don’t want to have it unless I’m planning on sleeping!

Sil

it’s a david’s tea…but it’s a drinkable one for me lol

Kittenna

I have 10g of it waiting in the tea area… lol

an afternoon cup for me, but still not as delicious as the first time i feel in love with this. I blame the different zhu rong harvest….still a decent cup though.

drank Yu Lu Yan Cha Black by Verdant Tea

oh man… i am going to be so upset if the newer harvest of this that i have isn’t as awesome as this last batch…because i was NOT impressed with the first round of this…had almost decided not to bother getting it again and then…well..i love this harvest that i have. Funnilly enough the zhu rong that i got the last time, i am not a fan of and the first time i got it – it was amaaaaazing lol so harvest CAN make a difference to extremes in some cases….though generally i haven’t found huge difference like this in harvests :)

scribbles

I found the same thing with zhu rong. I have yet to try my latest batch of yu lu…we’ll see…

drank Spring Fruit by TeaGschwendner
5925 tasting notes

I had this one again today as my afternoon tea while gaming. Apart from the fact that while brewing it, my entire house smells like caramel, i am a fan of the blending of sweet caramel with the “sour” fruit notes. I’m really glad i gave this one a shot even though it seemed like an odd thing to mix when i first read the description in the store :)

Final Count: Still 100 …

Lala

I remember when you were at 300 :)

Cameron B.

Whoa, 300… That makes me feel better at least. :D

Sil

Hahaha I remember when I was at 350….. Been gradually trying to get to a “reasonable” amount since then. 90 seems to be as long as I ever manage to go….but what the heck… Still trying :)

oh LB… my happy place…and when in need of an even more cocoa-y experience, jsut add a tsp of cacao to the cup and it’s amaaaazing. Please don’t ever change.

Bear With Me

Sil

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.
