this one is maple custard with a hint of fennel. i like AQ2T’s custard flavouring so that’s not a problem for me :) I don’t think you’d want the fennel to overpower everything here either. It means it’s not as unique a blend as it could be, but it IS tasty and the fennel is present :)

Another from VariaTEA…guess it’s that kinda day haha. Chocolate? check. though not in your face sort of chocolate. Zucchini? yes surprisingly. bread like flavour? yep! This one feels like it’s namesake which means that while that’s a good thing, it’s not for me haha. I don’t love chocolate breads… Also, my other complaint with this tea is that it clogged up my strainer pretty good with the cookie? type bits that turned in to a soggy mess. Still, i think this is a good one for anyone who likes that sort of tea :)

drank Soylent Green by A Quarter to Tea
8861 tasting notes

Another one from VariaTEA. This one i’m not really a fan of. It’s not a bad tea, but it’s not the sort of tea i can get behind. I generally don’t love green teas and while this is a reasonable tasting apple like tea, it’s just not doing it for me. There’s some other flavour here that i can’t place as well. It’s a smooth tasting tea, just not for me.

VariaTEA

It’s meant to be apple, pear and cucumber

Sil

hmmm didn’t really get cucumber…i guess the flavour could be pear/apple blend :)

lol Soylent Green with a flavor you can’t place? Have you seen this movie? http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0070723/plotsummary Hope you can forgive my wraped sense of humor but I read that name and my mind immediately went to the movie.

I’m sure that’s what Lauren was going for. I know the reference, just didn’t think about it putting it together lol

drank Honeybee by A Quarter to Tea
8861 tasting notes

Sample from VariaTEA. I didn’t actually bother to look up what this tea was supposed to be. I assumed there would be some sweetness to it but was also figuring for that honey taste that AQ2T puts in some of their teas that i’m not the biggest fan of. What i got was a pleasant surprise. While this is sort of a sweet, almost vanilla like tea (i’m not getting that honey flavour yet that i don’t like), the spicy notes in here make this a win for me. It’s not overly spicy – it really just adds to the mix and makes it an interesting cup.

This will likely be gone by the end of the long weekend. This was a great cup for this morning – cool, rainy mornings = tea just seems that much more amazing in the morning haha. While these weren’t as malty and chocolatey as previous years they are still a great every day sort of cup of tea and they’ll be back in my cupboard before long i’m sure.

drank Cherry Cordial by The NecessiTeas

Tried this one as a latte tonight and it’s actually kind of interesting. I get the tea flavour coming through more so than when brewed in water and the cherry flavouring is a little more realistic. Interesting experiment for sure. :)

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.
