drank Premium Green by Stash Tea Company

Made a big pot of this at the office again, but this time used 3:1 Stash Premium Green:Peet’s Earl Grey with Bergamot. This adds a pleasant kick with some citrus in the background.

drank Coconut Ice by DAVIDsTEA
1812 tasting notes

Finishing off the last of my sample. I kind of wish this was a Ceylon, so I infused some Upton Tea Co Bogawantalawa Estate Ceylon FBOP in it for a bit of a kick.

Just a big pot of this. Nothing special.

Stash teas are neither here-nor-there with me as well.

It was very much a “I would like a pot of tea to drink, while I work. Okay, this is available. Sounds fine.” moment of decision.

Been there for sure!

drank Banana Nut Bread by DAVIDsTEA
1812 tasting notes

This tea is bulky; not too many cups consumed and I have already used the ounce I purchased. Flavors are spot-on with banana bread, and it is pretty tasty. Full review coming later this morning to createwritedrink.com. Worth trying, if you like banana bread.

drank Pu Erh Hazelberry by Adagio Teas
1812 tasting notes

Once again, going to remove an item from inventory and realizing it was never a part of my inventory. I need to keep that updated. This was a pretty unique pu’erh, especially fruity. Read my full review, here: http://www.createwritedrink.com/2015/08/tea-review-tuesday-review-of-adagio-tea.html

drank Pu Erh Tahiti by Adagio Teas
1812 tasting notes

I had a sample of this and apparently never logged it in Steepster, so when I went to remove it from my inventory, I found that it was already removed.
I do, however, have a longer review, here: http://www.createwritedrink.com/2015/08/tea-review-tuesday-review-of-adagio.html
Rating for Steepster!

Finishing off the last of my ounce of this, which has been in my cupboard for far too long, by making big four-cup pots of it to share with coworkers.

I was recently given one of these to use for a time, while a friend was out of the country. I love it. While I enjoy making tea traditionally, this is a great tool for when I am running low on time and want tea to take with me.
More to come!

drank Green Rooibos Bonita by Adagio Teas

Drinking a couple of cups of this from my hedgehog mug increases the awesome severalfold.

Bio

“I love trading tea and trying new teas. My favourites are oolong (mainly Chinese) and pu’erh.
Will gladly talk all day about tea.”

The above was my bio when I joined five years ago, and I felt it needed to be updated. I still love pu’erh, though I have begun to take preference toward cooked, shou. Oolongs are certainly still a go-to tea for me, but I have expanded my horizons to begin including greens and blacks based upon the weather and how I am feeling.

Still more than glad to talk about tea – anytime, anywhere, anyplace.
Additionally, if fountain pens, books, music, or computers are on the discussion list…

My ratings, this “personal enjoyment scale” about which I talk, are just that – based on how much I enjoyed the tea. I might have enjoyed it immensely, yet do not keep it stocked for various reasons. On the flip side, I have a few teas that are “good” but not “great,” which I keep stocked for various reasons.
