Another from missB honestly, so very generous and i’m really looking forward to sharing these teas with the tea gals (and guys!). Super exciting to get packages in the mail from her travels and a great tea journey for trying new things. Makes me even more excited for someday getting out there with my other half…once my cupboard is mostly empty and in need of restocks lol I half expected this tea to be similar to David’s TEas apple custard thing..but this one doesn’t have that weird after taste and the apple is much more baked goods like lol thanks for the share again MissB!

Sounds like a good one. Love MissB!

Sil

yeah..she’s galavanting around the world, sending back tea for me to share with everyone heh

Plunkybug

MissB

Aw, you guys rock. These solo bags of Twinings were a great find.

another from missB and though it’s a green, i figured why not! seriously though…SO good. I really love this tea…there’s an almost fruity? smell to the bag but once brewed, it’s a lovely gingerbread tea… and honestly, if our bagged tea in canada were more like these…i’d be all over them more often.. :)

drank Salted Caramel Green Tea by Twinings

woot! tea from MissB i wasn’t quite sure what to expect with this one being as it’s a green tea…but this is great. It really is a deliciously yummy caramel tea – i don’t get much of the green tea base, other than the fact that it’s lighter than a black caramel tea in terms of the depth? of the tea…but i’m ok with that. These are great bagged teas and give me much hope for the toffee bags that were also in the care package missb sent over! :)

OMGsrsly

That sounds so neat! Salted caramel GREEN?

Sil

i know, right!? soo many tea bags…so many teas… must have them ALL…. there are only a couple of some of them ie. the two rose garden ones i set aside for SK are the only two there… One of the perks of getting the box means i get to drink all the teas i want! mwahahahahah (though to be fair, if there are things i KNOW i won’t like, i try not to drink them even for trials sake if i know someone else would love them….)

OMGsrsly

You’re too sweet. ;) Have fun with it! Go wild. Roll in the teas (carefully, don’t want to bust them up too much)!

Tea from today with a little cacao thrown in to the mix to start my week back to work off with a great start. While it’s not the same LB i feel in love with 2 years ago, it’s a close approximation, esp with cacao. Thanks again to courtney for sharing that with me a while ago!

last tea of the evening and i have to say that i bought this one in part because it was a large amount for a reasonable price (even as a sample size) but also because i was curious as to what the flowers would taste like. Mostly i just wanted to try an interesting, different experience. Sadly i was very distracted when i had this, and all i can really say is that it’s more like a white/green sort of tea but i DID drink it all up, relatively quickly heh more to come when i try it again!

Final Count: 72 YES! mwahahaha sipdown count for 2014 achieved… not that i’ll be making it to my next goal unless i decide to do 5 teas over 2 month periods…since i’m going to keep pushing for 50 teas heh

tea from this evening and not much to say about it that hasn’t been said better by lots of other people. this likely won’t be a restock for me but i AM enjoying it as a gradually sip it down when the mood strikes!

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.
