Sad times. this one smells more like toffee now when i open the tin, but still just tastes like a boring old lapsang. So i added rum cream to it. Much improved but not one i’d recommend from AU unless you a) like lapsang and b) get it for a fraction of the regular price.

If your review had been up when I ordered my free sample size of this tea I would have gone with the Loops one instead. At least it was free, just wish I didn’t already have a bunch of Lapsang.

Sil

just be glad you didn’t order black lodge…or did you? haha

Lexie Aleah

Nope I’ve never tried that company’s teas before and they had a promo for 4 oz of free tea to pick from 4 flavor choices. You only had to pay .99 cents for shipping. I’m definitely glad I didn’t order that one.

Finished this one off since VariaTEA ordered some and didn’t need our sample. Not one i need to keep in my cupboard, but i enjoyed while i had it. a little too much clove for me, but easily remedied by removing a few cloves from the brew :)

need to keep on drinking my puerh, and since it’s kind of a half day to all day thing, i’m trying to drink at least once while i work from home. I’ve got goals to make people! haha this one has been wonderfully smooth and dark today, though so far there hasn’t been much excitement going on..just a relatively delicious cup again and again.

So i’ve decided that 21 teas is too few teas in my cupboard lol i’m ignoring my puerh for the count, since that’s something that i tend not to just “drink” and i spend more time with it than every day drinking. pulled this one out today as i love this tea, but man it’s been hard not to buy more tea since i feel like i’m drinking the same things all the time :)

Hi Sil! I was just doing a count this morning too and came in at 42 (which includes my puerh too). I DID place an order though. Green teas are predominate in my cupboard and 2018 teas won’t be ready & shipped until May or June. So I gave in an ordered more of my favs from Yunnan Sourcing. I too am always drinking my old favs lately.

Sil

heh I’m at 36 with my puerh and it’s getting empty in my cupboard. I miss the variety! 42 is a fantastic number! i don’t have the same green problem you do heh but i totally get it. I think my ideal cupboard size is probably 50 (10 puerh, 40 regular teas) with a smattering of samples to try new things

Dexter

These numbers are just amazing to me!!!! I totally understand feeling like you need more variety – I think that’s what got most of us in trouble in the first place. :)

Sil

yep…i mean i don’t need the 350+ i was at that one time…but more than 20 for sure. lol

Dexter

I really need to gain control. Still not sure how exactly I’m going to go about it, but I need to taste all my flavored stuff then toss/rehome/keep accordingly. 50 plus pu’erh seems like a reasonable number if you are rotating with the seasons…

Sil

i had all my teas out on the table multiple times when i was up past 300….just trying to see what was old so i could rehome as quickly as possible so someone could drink it before it was really old.

Dexter

I don’t think I have lots (number of) flavored stuff, but yeah – I need to deal with it soon, and some may already be too late. That’s why I want to try them first. I think I’m just going to empty my flavored drawers into a box and drink at least one a day from the box and then deal with them accordingly.
Yeah when I was paying attention and updating all the time, I pulled them all out and weighed and put back regularly – I haven’t been doing that and therefore am in this situation. It’s all good though, I just need to get back on top of it….

Evol Ving Ness

Ah yes, this situation. Totally get this situation.

Ubacat

I was up to 160+ teas a couple of years ago. It was pretty overwhelming and now I just stick to what I love. I DO add some new teas once in awhile for variety.

Jlvintagelove

I am at over 50 currently- I can’t imagine doubling or tripling that amount.

Sil

hahaha you can’t imagine it…but it happens…easily :)

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.
