Sipdown! This is number 3 for today! (As I finish writing this in the morning, oops!)

This is a really lovely green tea. The tea itself is gorgeous. Little curly, downy leaves that smell delicious! The liquor is a very very light green, a bit vegetal and a bit sweet, and very smooth. As far as particular notes go I’m actually kind of forget because I didn’t get that far in my notes while sipping. I guess I’ll have to just get some more the next time I order from Teavivre!

Sipdown, gosh I’ve had this for a while. Brewed it hot and then went to log it and saw everyone liked it better cold. Oops! I still like it hot though, but I’m not sure I’ll order more.

Finally finishing up a sample size of this that I got down at the beach last year. It’s such a nice light cup, definitely a tea I’d like to have more of on hand. A little floral and a little fruity. I think this is a good green for those who don’t really like green teas. It’s not too vegetal or overbearing. It’s just one of those teas that makes me happy inside. :)

drank Sleeping Dragon by Adagio Teas

A very light and enjoyable cup. It’s fun to watch it steep as well because it starts as little rolled balls of tea and they unfurl into lovely leaves. Steeped this in my winter themed perfect mug (I need one for spring/summer) and I love covering it while it steeps and then when it’s time you open it and BOOM leaves ahoy. Anyway, this tea is very light and tasty, a bit vegetal, a little smokey, and a little bit of a raisin type note. Not bad, I’ve actually started drinking more green/white/oolong tea than black tea. Never thought I’d say that!

Delicious as always. :)
Love the way these leaves just expand, my teapot barely contains them!

Hm. This is Banana Nut Bread with a twist. I didn’t really care for the Banana Nut Bread (still have some in my sample bag). I wish DT would send some different kinds of herbals with their sampler kits (though I did skip the winter one).
This is more enjoyable than the BNB (too lazy to type it out again), but I don’t think I’d go out of my way to purchase it. It’s like BNB toned down with some coconut thrown in as well as a mix of some juicier fruits. Kinda weird, but not bad.

Agreed. BNB with a bit of coconut or something.

Yum yum. This tea has me smacking my lips after every sip! My first milk oolong of any sort, I have a sample from Teavivre sitting around as well so I will have compare the two later. They are both flavored I think (not super sure about this one), but that’s no problem.

Creamy and delicious, milky sweet. Just plain delicious! First steep, we’ll see how the others go. I’m glad I got a decent sized back of this!

drank Forever Nuts by DAVIDsTEA

Had this last night after a scary incident of losing one of my cats (still a kitten really) for a couple hours. It looks like she slipped out the front door when I got home and I found her (after much searching) on the steps leading up the next floor (we rent a condo). She was curled up in a little ball and looked miserable. I felt horrible but I’m so glad she didn’t go far. She does have a microchip and a collar but still… Anyway so I needed a nice cup of tea to calm me down.

I really loved the flavor, nutty and a lovely bit of cinnamon (which I love in tea). I also love the color change, tea should be fun. :) I’m a big fan of sprinkles in flavored teas as well! I’d definitely love to have more of this on hand, it was enjoyable to drink.

Kittenna

Glad the kitty was found! It’s a nightmare scenario for me :(

drank Pom Tango by DAVIDsTEA

I have a bit of this as part of the Spring Collection. It smells amazing, even with my stuffy nose. I forgot to set the timer so it steeped for at least 5 minutes. Not bitter at all though and still quite tasty. I think I get a hint of pomegranate in there but it is mostly mango. The juicy mango flavor is the most prominent, as opposed to black tea. I bet this would make a great iced tea. No sweetener needed either, I think the sugar on the mango pieces might help. Very yummy!
