9808 Tasting Notes

Tea from today….mostly because i know this one is decent enough because i’ve had it before and because i was tired of my cupboard count being at 41. lol sipdown! This is a sample from VariaTEA and wasn’t terrible. Today it was a great tea to have with some sponge toffee…pure sugar and one of my weaknesses lol.

I have more than 41 teas sitting on my kitchen counter right now. It’s probably more like 100! This tea sounds good – is it recent? I wonder if I’ve had it (… probably).

I technically only have 12 teas and a bunch of samples from variaTEA that I working on slowly since my caffeine intake is limited. And I suspect this is “new” compared to your teas since I think variaTEA is at most about a year behind in terms of cupboard age? I think?

Pulled this one out this morning for a bolder tea that i could have a couple cups of. I always love this one with a little maple syrup to enhance the slightly smokey taste. I’ll be sad when this one is done, but at the same time i’ve had it forever :)

Still have some of this kicking around and treated myself to it yesterday. love the creaminess of this one. Not even sure why but this one just makes me slightly more happy than the other blueberry tea from 52 teas. Not that either is bad, but this one just checks more of the boxes. Creamy blueberry goodness.

tea from earlier today. Really enjoyed this one today – just the right balance of creamy strawberry goodness. A little sugar to make the strawberry pop and it’s just what i need.

Tea from earlier today. i pulled out a little of the mint when i brewed it up – my go to approach for this now because while i love it, I need a little less mint. I like the ginger in this one with the lime but prefer just a hint of mint. :)

Sipdown! Finished this one off today while working on going through things in the house. We haven’t really taken a lot of time to get the house organised for “baby” and we really need to spend more time getting organised before i turn in to a waddling mess who can’t help haha. Pulled this one out because it’s super tasty and i knew it would be a sipdown. Such a great tea to kick off the day – i really love mandala’s offerings.

I have yet to try anything by Mandala. Need to change that. But I am currently working on what I’ve got at home.

lots of great puerh and black tea options there – i even really enjoy the milk oolong they have. I’m down to 9 teas…so i’m allowed to order eventually when i feel the urge. I resisted black friday though, so feel like i’ll manage to hold off for a while yet

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.
