And what better tea to follow up the Choconut Oolong with, than this? It’s a cup of pure minty YES. It’s my favourite bed-time tea at the moment, although Mango Lassi is a close second. They’re both perfect for different moods, so I guess I don’t really have to choose.

JustJames

lol, pure minty YES! =0)

Em

I like the minty YES as well :)

This the last of the Winter Collection that I haven’t tried. I love peppermint, so I’ll have to swing by and grab a sample, or it might be in my 24 days of tea.

Sandra – I hope you like it! Some people didn’t like that it leaves a bit of a blue/green oily residue on the cup, which isn’t the most appetizing, but if you ignore that and just taste it, it’s good.

Goodbye. Good riddance.
Not added to my shopping list.

And I’m going to do a dance for this sipdown. The cup was ok – it was better than throwing it out, but there’s not much going for it. I just wanted to finish my sample to make double-triple sure (as I had high hopes).

Tuscanteal

I did not enjoy it. Its very rare I toss out a cup of tea. Blech!

Cavocorax

Yeah. Too bad – the first few sips were awesome, until the licorice notes showed up and made it… awful.

And that’s another matcha gone! (81) :O I try to drink one cup a day (a big one with 2 scoops!) and only keep 4 flavours open at a time to help out with the freshness.

What did I think? I like this – it’s creamy and sweet and enjoyable for times I don’t want to be overwhelmed by flavour (i.e., pumpkin matcha, or bubblegum). Would I get it again? Maybe. There are so many other options out there, but, I would’ve say no to more.

Sil

mmm i’m trying to do the same thing. I just haven’t been in the mood for matcha lately..and i’ve got a zillion different packages still. haha

MissLena

I was doing really good with my one cup of matcha a day, then I just stopped lol, need to get back on that and finish up my older ones, I haven’t even tried out my new matcha bowl yet! Lol

Dinosara

My matcha is my biggest weakness in my collection, in that I’ve had them forever but I have gotten bad about drinking them. I need to start a 1-a-day program, maybe after Black Friday.

Stephanie

I just wish I went through my matcha faster so I could try new flavors!

drank Je t'aime by Nina's Paris

I had a sample of this before, direct from Nina’s Paris, but JustJames surprised me with just a little more. And I’m happy he did. I still think this is my favourite from Nina’s Paris. I just love the caramel and vanilla.

I may have to pick up some for myself. :)

Rosehips

I love this one!

JustJames

i’m glad it made you smile.

It’s cold. I think it’s a good morning to visit Mount Gray and tour its blustery peaks.

drank Pu-erh Cocoa-spice by Tealux

Wow. I just got hit with a blast of cocoa. I love it. There’s not much puerh to this, but the chocolate and cinnamon are so good. The chili adds a nice bit of kick too!

I think this would make an awesome latte!

drank Thé de Lune by Mariage Frères
1693 tasting notes

We went to the zoo today and I rushed out the door without any tea and while we had a great AWESOME day, (especially because no one was there!) I’m totally drained and in need of tea.

I wanted something fantastic, and this is it.

I can’t believe JustJames sent a sample of this as I would totally be tempted to hoard it. :P OTOH, when you have something fantastic it’s exciting to see how others like it too. Either way, THANK YOU. :P

And so, how to describe this? I wish I hadn’t drank all of this today in a way because my head isn’t quite able to describe this.

It’s liquid moonlight. Vanilla dancing with cornflowers. Soft perfume floating in the air and a touch of sweet blackberry fruit to give it some weight.

I had Adagio’s Jane Austen Mafia yesterday, and this is the grown-up version of that. Superb.

Liquid moonlight is a wicked description.

Bio

Tea: I just started drinking loose tea in the fall of 2012, and once I started I had to get more and more and try ALL THE TEAS. Joining Steepster made this worse/easier.

So far it seems that I prefer unflavoured black teas, although I still drink a few that are flavoured each day too. Oolongs, greens, puerhs and white teas are all very good, but I just don’t crave them as often.

Yet.

Me: Ok. Random things. I like animals, I have a baby girl and a devoted bf, and … I’m a geek. I like Lord of the Rings, Sherlock, Doctor Who, Game of Thrones, Supernatural, pen&paper RPG’s, online RPG’s, video games, silly internet memes, puzzles and a bunch of others things! I taught myself to knit and I’m considering crochet but I need to make time for all these things!

Ratings:
1-50: Bleh.
51-64: It’s ok.
65-75: It’s good.
76-85: It’s very good. (Buy 1oz+)
86-100: Amazing. (ALWAYS re-stock)
