noms. had this one earlier today as well and it was super tasty. Sort of an every day cup of tea that i could have any time for just wanting a solid cup of tea.

Sample from evol ving ness

So i have to say that i actually ended up spitting this one out. I hadn’t looked at what the blend was made of before i drank it….my mistake. The oolong has a great aroma to it, and before the amacha kicked in it was a good cup..but about 2 secons in to the sip the amacha kicked in and it was like drinking a cup of stevia that’s been slightly dilluted with water. i tried to weaken the brew by adding some water to it but i just couldn’t get it down. super sweet… ick.

in case anyone else is curious:

Is the Steepster link for this down on your end? I get a dead page… (it not the tea cup of life one)

Sil

steepster is having issues. i get weird message on some teas, i see duplicates of all teas etc…

Indigobloom

bleh. Hopefully they sort it out soon

Evol Ving Ness

Sorry, Sil. This tea is one of several that I sent your way before having tried them myself. It’s kind of a tradition now. Yup, reading up on this in your link, I am finding out that one needs a light hand. Good to know.

Arby

Is this an artificial sweetener/stevia sweet, or table sugar sweet?

Sample from evol ving ness this is a revisit for me and after a couple cups i’ve decided that i’m done with this tea. I loved it in the past and these days i’m finding it to be just a touch too sweet for me. Still enjoyed the revisit very much but i think that i’m good to leave this one alone for another year or so and see where i land then :)

I remember that one!

thought i’d give this one another go since it was in the box. Turns out, i’m still sort of “meh” it’s just a little bland for me…kinda like a basic black tea.

I tried this one because a number of folks had extolled the amazingness of this one. I hadn’t had a chance to place an order so i was glad to see it in the box to try. Thanks for sharing with us LP! I have to say, i love the shou in this one, and the addition of the “rum” aka aging in the barrels is a fun experiment. slightly sweet….earthy…creamy. interesting experiment!

sample from evol ving ness this one was a resounding NOPE for me…i dunno what it was about the tea but between the aroma and the taste, i could drink it… oh well, can’t win ‘em all and i’ll happily shre what i have left with folks since lots of others seem to have enjoyed them!

So no real clue what to write about myself here. A friend got me into drinking loose tea and it’s something I thoroughly enjoy though I have nowhere near the experience that many folks on the boards seem to have.

My other interests are cycling, reading, board games, disney cruises, world of warcraft and dancing – in no particular order. I love travelling and am currently working on trying to get my other half to as many place in the world as possible.
