drank Jin Jun Mei by Capital Tea Ltd.

Working from home today because no one needs to be out in this weather unless they have to. I’m looking forward to the day because while it’s busy, it’ll give me a chance to drink tea all day instead of just my two travel mugs :) Still love this one – something about it just works….that malty deliciousness is nommy.

drank Limoncello by The NecessiTeas
9661 tasting notes

this one was a little better today made it while playing games and making cookies. We did a slow cooker pot roast as well given the weather so it’s been a warm, comfy, cozy weekend. Also, the toys we bought doggo as a birthday present were a bit hit – helped keep her from going crazy being stuck inside a little more than we like. One’s a giraffe with tennis balls for feet and the other is a spiky turtle that squeaks. She’s in love with both of them…hasn’t stopped playing with them all weekend haha.

this tea is still too light in terms of flavour for me to be limoncello….but it’s a half decent lemongrass tea. haha thanks for the share VariaTEA!

Final Count: 29

29. Twenty-Nine. What.

CrowKettle

I want your cupboard size and quality.

Evol Ving Ness

You know, for normal people, twenty-nine teas are still really a lot of teas for one person to have.

Lexie Aleah

What type of cookies did you make? I also buy my dogs B-Day gifts and usually make them a dog birthday cake. I bet the squeaky toy got annoying real fast though.

CrowKettle

Evol Ving Ness, let’s not go there XD

Sil

pl 29 teas is awful…especially since i have the wrong break down: 5 samples; 13 puerh; 11 teas (only 3 of which are straight blacks and no herbals)

Sil

cookies are basically chocolate chip, but there are oats and rice krispies in them… Ruby is good with her squeaky toys – they’re her favourite but we probably squeak them more than her to watch the reaction haha

Evol Ving Ness

And thus, we will continue to enable each other and keep each other’s dirty secrets. :)

But seriously, Sil. Very impressive.

drank Cherry Cola by The NecessiTeas
9661 tasting notes

meh. No matter what i try to do with this one, it never seems to work. Today i got a little bit more cola, but in the end it really is just a whole lot of rooibos. oh well…never know until you try!

Lexie Aleah

Have you tried it as a tea pop with some agave?

Sil

i would if i did tea pops, but they aren’t really my thing heh

drank Marshmallow Assam by 52teas
9661 tasting notes

after the last cup i needed something i knew i could count on. Thank you 52 teas marshmallow assam for saving the day. Seriously, i need to get that other taste out of my mouth…so gross. sharp contrast to this tea which is both lovely, smooth and delicious. Happy with the base tea that still comes through, as well as the marshmallow root tastiness!

gross. so gross…smelled delicious, took a sip and spat it out. no thanks. there’s a seriously artificial taste going on here along with something else…that i can’t explain because the i’d have to put more in my mouth…and you can’t make me.

Evol Ving Ness

Wow, I don’t recall you often having this kind of response (with the exception of that AU blend recently and even then).

Also, HOW can it smell so delicious and then disappoint so thoroughly?

Helena

I hate it when that happens.

Sil

it’s happened before evol, but not often

drank Walnut Green by Aromatica Fine Teas

this sample from VariaTEA is fine…just not really my cup of tea. I was skeptical about using almost boiling water for this, but it turned out fine. Very walnut, just not something i really need in my life if that makes sense.

drank Bed of Roses by Tea Sparrow

nope. this one isn’t even too floral, it’s just not good. Kinda like someone tried to add roses to red rose tea or something. I dunno…and now of course i’ve got bon jovi stuck in my head lol

This is maple custard in a cup. Not getting a lot of the fennel taste peaking through though. I am enjoying this today given the miserable weather but i think it’s a little too sweet for me to be drinking on a regular basis. Still fun to try :) thanks VariaTEA!

Sample from VariaTEA – this isn’t really strawberry or lemonade to me… it’s just kinda coming through like a sort of sweet but tart brew. it’s not bad but it’s not really what it’s claiming to be for me.

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.
