Farewell delicious tea! Finished this one off today. Sad to see it go, but happy to finish this off before the year is up.

So funny that i haven’t reviewed this, but honestly i’m just not sure what to make of this years teas from TTC, this is NOT the lot that i feel in love with, but this is pretty good and has that familiar cinnamon like taste to it, especially the more it cools. I’ll need to try this one at a lower temperature and see what i can get out of it

Another sample from the toronto tea festival. This one is fairly delicious, though bar far my favourite has been inthe jin jun mei from capital teas. This has a nice medium body with some sweetness and that typical sort of ruby red flavouring. Happy to have tried this and looking forward to hopefully seeing some new vendors this year.

another tea for the Toronto Tea festival. I’m lazy and don’t want to add it to the database. It’s here: https://www.tearoma.com/collections/black-tea/products/red-ruby

“Red Ruby” from Tearoma.

This is actually a fairly nice tea. The leaves are rolled and when brewed, to me this is almost a malty honeyed brew versus being just a honeyed tea. It’s got a deeper flavour and bolder brew than the TTC tea i had this morning, which makes it more up my alley. I don’t need more of this, but i may check out some of the other offerings this company has based on the strength of this one.

boring. That’s what this tea is to me. I’m going to have to increase the steeping time or the temperature and see if i can coax something more out of this but this is kind of light a really light bodied, honeyed water. Ok so it’s not quite that weak but it’s just nothing like past harvests…

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.
