So I don’t think I know what 1/2 the ingredients are in this tea but what I do know is it tastes like oolong and not much else. I suppose that is okay for some but I am just not a lover of oolong so I am thinking this is probably not for me. Still, it is always fun to try new things so thank you Sil for the opportunity!

Now back to studying…kill me now :(

This was a pleasant cup of subtle orange black tea. I found a hint of spice in the background—the cardamom I guess.

pulled this one out today to try since it’s been a while. Was blown away by the orange smell of the dry leaf. Brewed it’s a creamy orange black tea – i suspect the vanilla is softening the orange flavour. It’s quite tasty and very much seems to me like something that should be had when there’s snow on the ground – a cool winter evening, where the stars have started to come out and there’s a fresh light snow falling.

Sil

i have lots for you to try some of this eventually hahaha

Pulled this one out to try. I had picked this one up because it had a really nice orange smell to the dry leaf. Sadly brewed, this doesn’t taste like much, so next time i’ll try a 5 min steep.

all gone! one more paris tea vanishes from my cupboard, though i still have a TON left. I enjoyed this one, though funnily enough there were times i wanted less caramelish taste and more fruit. But that’s mostly ‘cause it’s hot. soooo hot.

20 away from my sipdown goal that i was aiming to get to by the end of august, but i’m making progress – last month i was 27 away heh. So there’s still hope that i can wrap things up by the end of the year, which is really all that matters anyway. I ended august at 90, which is still pretty good considering unplanned paris shopping splurges and butiki closing.

This one is from paris and i am still loving it. I’m nearly through the bag and that’s alright because i have a few other fruit teas that i can drink if this awful heat carries on in to september. Here’s hoping for a cooler day in EIGHTEEN DAYS though… even if it’s just for that one day :)

good job! Today I just finished the last bit of a cheaper jasmine tea I’ve been slowly using up over many months, so I feel accomplished along with you :).

I’m with you about the fruit teas. Even though the heat isn’t as bad anymore where I live, I still want a pitcher of iced herbal fruit tea in my fridge at all times. My sipdowns for fruit teas have declined since my husband and I aren’t drinking a pitcher a day of the stuff anymore, but progress will still be made ;)

Noms. I really should remember to update this tea when i’m back in toronto. I have the brochure from george cannon but forgot to do it when i added them to the database. This is a nice sweet fruit tea. Not much else to say about it..it’s tasty.

Another tea from earlier today – this one as a cold brew. Interesting blend of fruitiness, blending with vanilla. I can’t decide if i like this better hot or cold, but both are pretty darn tasty, especially if you’re looking for something a little different than the usual fruit tea.

yay for engagement pics, wedding shoes and things starting to finally come together. One more thing off the list, so things are going well. This tea is becoming my go to work tea when i want something a little fruity but also richer than a straight up fruit tea. Enter…caramel fruit tea lol loving it!

You go, girl!

this tea is growing on me more every time i have it. Hibiscus yet, but the other flavours mute the sour enough that i don’t NEED to add sugar..but when i do, it’s even more delicious! creamy fruity caramel yum.

noms. Another tea from Paris. I did my best to try and pick up one or two herbals while i was there since i knew i was short on evening teas for when i didn’t want caffeine. this is a really nice fruity, caramel blend. there’s some hibby in here, which has never bothered me so i’m ok with that :) there are vanilla notes here too…which soften the fruit and make it a really nice summer sort of tea.

From Sil, this one is an oolong with various fruits. It has a tart & tangy lightly sweet character. There is a vegetal quality to it as well. I’m tea starved, I haven’t had a cup for hours, so at this point I’ll probably drink anything, but luckily this is actually a nice cup.
Not somethings I’d stock, but nice to try.

Ysaurella

Sil should have sent the rest of the sample I sent her and I’m very glad she did as you liked this lovely Oolong. This is kind of collector tea as it was made especially for the Musée Cernuschi in Paris and for a very specific temporary exhibition.

Terri HarpLady

That’s cool! What kind of exhibit was it?
Also, I love that we are trading even when we don’t realize it! :)

Ysaurella

it was an exhibition dedicated to the asian paintings from the shanghaï school(1840-1920).The cernuschi museum in the museum of Asian arts in Paris.

Another one from Sil (206)

I only need 6 more sipdowns in the next two days! HOLY MOLY. I’m totally amazed.

And this puerh is rather good. It’s very earthy but I can taste a little bit of sweetness to it. It makes me think of caramel more than vanilla fruitiness, but it’s still good. I wouldn’t crave this often, but it’s a tasty.

Thanks!

Sil

I think I need 15 or something over today/tomorrow ll

Tried this one again tonight and i’m still not sure how i feel about it…on the whole, I probably like it less than i think i should. LOL I really like the puerh, which makes me want to try more teas from GC, but the additions are not up my alley. However, as always, i am super thankful to Ysaurella for sharing with me :)

I opted to try this one tonight as i’m making an attempt to try all my last remaining samples before the next batch gets here. This is a very puerh, puerh. I didn’t really get much of the vanilla or fruit from this one. Ysaurella sent me this one and i’m glad i have more to play with. I enjoyed this, but more as a straight puerh than a flavoured one. haha I’ll have to see if i can coax the flavours out :)

cteresa

I got the flavours out but can not remember what I did – lucky me, maybe beginner´s luck since I am very inexperienced with pu erh. Though I did have it on a rainy day, maybe the magic was in that and the name of the tea!

Sil

i like that as a reason cteresa! :) I’ve got lots to play with and thankfully, it’s a nice puerh so even if i don’t get flavours from it later, i’ll still enjoy it!
