drank Carrot Cake by Della Terra Teas

Oh, Ozli was totally right when she recommended adding brown sugar and a bit of milk to this. Just… wow. This made my evening! I wish I hadn’t eaten that chocolate bar earlier because this would have probably satisfied my sweet craving. Probably.

I can’t believe I’ve only got enough of this left for a cup! I’ll have to get more in November for the big sale!

Amariel

Sounds yummy…

I grabbed this one randomly from my Teavivre sample box in my quest to get a better understanding of oolongs.

I steeped it for 2 minutes at near boiling water. The result is an orange-brown liquor. The description says that sweet potatoes notes are predominant but it sore of reminds me of peach. And grape.

And… I wish I could get into this further, but everything is working against me today so I will leave this there and hope for more time with the other sample packet.

drank Florence by Harney & Sons
1693 tasting notes

I’m drinking this while eating pocky sticks and the chocolate/chocolate combo is rather nice. The baby ate half my sticks though and now she’s giving me these wide blue eyes begging for more. That’s fine. I’ve got this tea. She can have the last stick.

We’re watching Hannibal (tv) and it’s pretty neat so far. Also, really gory and awful. The really cool thing about it is that my sister-in-law does a lot of the make-up/props for the show, so dead bodies, body parts, wounds etc are done by her and her co-workers. Hopefully I’ll get a chance to visit the shop she works in as it’s just in Toronto!

Sil

I WANNA COME!

Cavocorax

Hahaha. I’ll let you know if I’m ever alloweed to bring other people. Otherwise, pics?

Lala

I love Hannibal, the series and the movies. So jealous of your sister in law!

Sil

yes yes yes and oh…yes! we just finished watching the last episode of season one. :)

Indigobloom

pocky!!! love it :P

Terri HarpLady

Maybe you can get her to get you on as a cadaver…wouldn’t that be fun to play a dead person? :)

Cavocorax

hahaha – maybe? I never thought of that!
She mentioned borrowing our toddler too, although I’m not sure what for. Possibly to help with a body mold?

Ozli

I’m too much of a srs baby for Hannibal 8(

drank Love Life Tea by Harney & Sons

Thanks Courtney for the sample! (Down to 116!)

I’m not sure if I made it wrong, or what but I’m not really getting any coconut or strawberry from this. It just tastes grassy. Almost like a grassy oolong? It has a slight strawberry smell though so I know I have the wrong tea. I’ll just have to try it again in the future!

drank Peppermint Patty by Butiki Teas
1693 tasting notes

Mmmmm. I decided that I wanted one more tea, after drinking a few that I didn’t log. (Whoops). I thought this was really nice with the peppermint notes but I felt it was lacking just a bit.

Then I added a touch of sugar.
OH. I get it now. :)

This tea tastes so sweet and artificial and all of that but I don’t care because sometimes I want a fake tea like this. It’s like drinking a pop after being healthy for so long. :p

I have SO MUCH of this tea. Maybe 6 oz? But now it’s starting to get cooler out I’ll start drinking this up a lot more. It’s pretty awesome with just a dash of sugar/cream.

OMGsrsly

Try it with maple syrup (or maple agave) a la Sil! :D It’s SO GOOD. Also whipped cream.

And that’s the last of this, as part of Operation: Oldest-Teas First. (118)

Wait, that’s a really crappy codename. Maybe Operation: Stale No More? Operation: Rotation Escalation? Operation: Drink More Tea To Boost My Creativity?

Gonna steep on it. (:P)

Sil

lol goofy!

MissLena

Rotation escalation!

Anna

Rotation Escalation is PERFECTION.

Cavocorax

Hahah – allllll riiight. Rotation escalation it is! :P

Anna

AKA RotEsc. If it gets really insane, (G)RotEsc.

Cavocorax

I like the abbreviation, but what’s the G?

Ozli

steep on it made me lol, ngl :P

Grotesque? G’rot’esc?? :P

Cavocorax

Oh. Ohhhhh! (DUH). :D

Today I mixed Pumpkin Pie with Cheesecake, cold milk and frothed it right up. This was a pretty good combo, but not as satisfying as the Cheesecake/Belgium Chocolate.

Stephanie

YUM, you make me want to purchase more matcha so I can play around like this :)

Cavocorax

I’m just so grateful I won the contest that Red Leaf put on. I never win anything, so 11 packs of matcha is just unbelievable! :O I was giddy for weeks! (And that was before the caffeine arrived! ha)

Stephanie

OH that explains it :D Congrats!!!

drank Bolder Breakfast by The Tea Spot
1693 tasting notes

So I’m having this for breakfast. I’m bad at breakfasts when I’m not working. I just sorta get up at 10 and then eat at 1, and stay up until midnight or so – at least 1 hour after the baby goes to bed so I can FINALLY BE ALONE.

This makes a pretty damn good breakfast! And if I haven’t mentioned before,I really love the tins that Tea Spot uses. They have a metal insert under the lid so it’s double-sealed and I know my tea will stay fresh. Thank you, Tea Spot!

Terri HarpLady

I love this tea too, AND their tea tins. :)
Also, Cavo, I have to say how much fun it was coordinating that crazy tea order with you & Sil. LOL

Terri HarpLady

BTW, your current schedule sounds a lot like mine, minus the baby, of course.

Cavocorax

I really appreciate you coordinating that order too! :P I would never have discovered Tea Spot without you – I think you send me the original sample that made me want more.

And it’s a pretty decent schedule! :P My only complaint is that when J comes back from university I feel like I haven’t done enough in the day, but that’s because I’m up later than I would be. It’s worth it though – I’d rather be up past midnight all by myself than wake up at 6.

Terri HarpLady

I feel that!
I love working from home, LOL. Although Ms Theresa keeps reminding me that I need to spend a little more time doing actual ‘work’, whatever that is. ;)

Profile

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)
