Last tea of the night before I crawl in to bed and hope for just one day tomorrow that doesn’t have issues and problems. I probably shouldn’t behaving this with jr mints, dillpickle dip and regular chips and cinnamon raisin toast…but I am. So there. And no, I’m not pregnant lol just stressed :) I ate real dinner earlier so Nyah!

This Isn’t a bad blend. Holding off rating it since I’ve got lots of flavours going on here at the same time, but I am feeling the ginger and the rooibos….but there’s also a sweetness to it that must be the pineapple, though it doesn’t taste like that. I have a feeling as well, that I could have steeped this for longer to get even more of the ginger to come out. Ill have to try that next time.

Edit….also final tea count of the day…265. 11 days to go. Lol

Mmmm, chips with dill pickle dip are my favorite. I haven’t had that in so many years… Sigh.

Nicole

Sometimes there just isn’t any answer for stress other than junk food.

Sil

Jessie…. I’ve been good about not having that crap in the house, or ignoring it when my other half buys it…but man, right this second I am sooooo glad for it.

Nicole – heck yeah! Though I’d totally trade you some junk food for a tea party ;)

jessiwrites

Yep, I never have it in the house. I live alone, so it’s pretty easy to eat healthy foods all the time. But I get the occasional craving, and might have to indulge. That just sounds too good.

Dinosara

You will be pleased to know I bought a small tin of tea at a grocery store today.

Sil

Hahaha lol if nothing else this makes for more tea drinking fun :)

Terri HarpLady

Sil: what happens in 11 days?
Dinosara: what kind of tea?

Sil

Terri – dinosara and I are having a friendly competition to see if I can get my cupboard caught up to hers before she gets back from vacation. I was at 280ish…she’s at 190ish?

whatshesaid

Man you sure have a lot of tea to drink in the next 11 days!!

Dinosara

Terr: It’s a huckleberry white tea from a local blender. It sounded good so I couldn’t resist even though I haven’t tried it.

Sil

that does sound good dinosara!
whatshesaid – um i basically need 6-7 sipdowns a day hahahahahahahaha yeah…so not going to happen but i can try :)

Dinosara

Oops that was supposed to say Terri and not just Terr :P

whatshesaid

I drink about five-six a day, you can do it! Just have smaller cups ;)

Terri HarpLady

That’s ok, everyone in my family calls me Ter : )
We all speak in mono syllables when we’re around each other

Terri HarpLady

Sil, really that’s 8-9 sip downs a day! Good luck…oh wait, who did I think I was talking to?
If anyone can do it, it’ll be you!!
And we’ll all be chanting you name, like a bunch of frat boys at a college beer chugging contest, “sil…sil…”
:D

Terri HarpLady

Or you can start a traveling tea box, LOL

Terri HarpLady

Two things I’ve never had:
1 – a huckleberry: I’m picturing double sized blueberry, but guessing its more along the lines of boysenberry or blackberry? That tea sounds lovely.
2 – dill pickle dip: what’s in it, besides dill pickles?

Sil

hahaha good plan terri! LOL
omg dill pickle dip is sooo good. It’s the philidelphia cream cheese dip. so uh cream chese and dill pickle. woooonderful with plain old regular chips.

Terri HarpLady

ah….guess I’ll never have it, since I’m allergic to milk & all milk products…

Sil

Oh no Terri! Uh…does that include dairy in teas? Only ask so I can make sure not to send you any with dairy in it.

Sipdown! 808.

This perhaps tastes a bit more like gingerbread now, but I think there’s cardamom in it and that’s why I’m thinking it tastes like that delicious Indian rice pudding thinger. Nom nom nom. Just had to have one more teensy cup before sending off the rest!

This is a great evening time tisane… it was very good after I went to the movies tonight and then had a huge bowl of vegetarian ramen. Just the right amount of ginger but not overwhelming. I really love this with some soymilk. :)

Vegetarian ramen? Now all I want is a big bowl of noodle soup… bleh!

Michelle

Where do you get veggie ramen from?

From a noodle shop in San Francisco. :)

On the Third Day of Christmas … Della Terra Teas sent me this tea!

This is a bit of a backlog, as I did enjoy the tea a day or two ago so that I could write this full-length review and schedule it for publication today: http://sororiteasisters.com/2012/12/16/on-the-third-day-of-christmas-della-terra-teas-sent-to-me/

This tea isn’t as “gingerbread-y” as I would have expected from a tea called “The Gingerbread Man,” instead, it had a really delicious creamy element to it. I really enjoyed this, creaminess, and the sweetness of the cup overall, but, I did find myself wanting a bit more of a snappy gingerbread taste.

I don’t like gingerbread that much. But when I was making my order with Della Terra I thought I’d at least try this since they do dessert blends so well.

I am quite enjoying this one, it really tastes like cookies. And the rooibos, instead of being annoying and woody and medicinal, really blends into the flavor well.

Traveling Tea Box C #1
I was so excited last night that my taste was finally back after being sick for 4 days. It was pretty late though so I searched through my “to try” pile for a decaf tea and I immediately grabbed this one at first sight. I love love love the christmas season and love gingerbread men. After steeping I was sceptical because I wasn’t getting that aroma of freshly baked gingerbread cookies. And the taste confirmed my theory…this is just a GINGERY tea :( I definitely went to bed sad. I hope I find some goodies in herr that I LOVE.

JustJames

DT’s sugar and spice is pretty good….. a solid spice cake taste, very autumnal!

BrewTEAlly Sweet

I will have to find some:)

JustJames

for me david’s teas is really hit or miss, but this blend was decidedly cool. it has carrot in it and very unpredictably it lends credence to there being cake! i wouldn’t have predicted that! nice with sweetened condensed bad behaviour too, lol.

Hmmmmmmm weird, I’ve decided that I don’t like ginger tea. Why is that? I’m a huge ginger fan in food. I adore gingerbread and ginger snap cookies. I didn’t do well with the Fusion Tea ginger cookie, and I’m not doing well with this either. Not sure I will finish the cup, not doing well. I’m not even sure what it is, but ewwwwwwwwww is pretty much all I have to say.

Sorry JackieT, I really do appreciate you sending me this sample, and it really sounded like something I should like. It’s just not to be. At least I learned that I don’t like ginger.

Emilie

I’m the same way with nutmeg. I love it in food but I can’t stand it in tea

I love gingerbread, in fact, one could probably go so far as to say that I’m a gingerbread snob. For me, gingerbread needs to include a handful of things, cinnamon, ginger, black pepper, vanilla, and molasses. Then of course there is the butter and sugar.

I was a bit worried about trying this tea, it just didn’t seem to have enough of the ingredients that I have come to expect in gingerbread and I was right. There were both sweet and creamy aspects to the tea that managed to remind me somewhat of butter and sugar. However, there wasn’t enough spice in this for me and the pineapple and currants seem like an odd addition which left me thinking this tasted more like fruit cake than gingerbread.

I way over steeped this one, probably 12mins or so. I forgot about it while chatting with my daughter after I got home from work. I’ve had one tea that tasted like a ginger snap. Other than ginger snaps, I’m not much a fan of gingerbread cookies.

This tea is ginger like, but more of a bakey ginger than thie kind of ginger you get from most teas. Generally I find ginger can way overpower a tea and ruin it.

This works nicely, ginger like, sweet perhaps a bit fruity. Not really bakey like a cookie. A nice yummy bedtime tea.

Boiling 8 min or more

I think I have some kind of stomach bug but I’m dragging myself to work because I need my days off for the holidays. So I’m drinking a lot of this, tastes like ginger ale and has stomach settling rs.rooibos. Using tea to get through the day.
