Finished this one off yesterday – enjoyable cup from crowkettle but i think i prefer david’s tea in a pinch since it’s easier access all in all.

CrowKettle

.. but the marshmallow root D:

I generally settle for David’s Tea too for ease of access, but I’ve developed a slight marshmallow root addiction over the years which has made me extremely passionate on this subject. :P

The pure marshmallow root and marshmallow root/leaf teas I’ve tried all taste like dry grass and dusty roots. I’m not convinced marshmallow root really gives any marshmallow flavour, I think marshmallow flavouring and vanilla are usually used.

CrowKettle

I think you’re right, but weirdly enough it’s the dusty grass/earthy quality that I love. I miss the depth it provides when a tea only uses vanilla/dessert flavouring. It’s definitely not a overly sweet thing in it’s own right- possibly more of a textural thing?

hahhaha, marshmallow root addiction. Add vanilla and I am there too.

Sample from crowkettle this is a tasty milk oolong, but it’s nothing knock your socks off.

Delicious afternoon tea. Added a pinch of sugar to this and it certainly brings out a bit more of the caramel deliciousness. I think i prefer it without though to have more of the apple taste.

Morning tea. Trying to take care of a few things around the house today without being on my foot too much. Needed something a little stronger to kick the day off so that i could be productive :) Figured i could work on some of my older teas this weekend as well.

drank Pineapple Peach by 52teas

crowkettle sample. I love pineapple teas. love them. Something about the juicy bits of pineapple in teas that makes me happy. THIS tea is lovely. Like i wish the dollar would go up because i’d like to buy a pouch for myself. I don’t get a lot of the peach flavouring in this one, but i’m 100% ok with that because i want the pineapple haha. The base of the tea still comes through, blending really nicely with the flavouring. reminds me a little of the memory of butikit’s pineapple oolong that i loved.

Final Count: 73

If only Butiki was still around, because I would probably have drank every single oolong they offered.

This one’s almost sold out.

Afternoon green tea to try and relax and get things done. Thanks for sending these my way crowkettle – always nice to step outside my “usual”

Another one from this morning. I quite like these little oranges as long as you don’t get too much peel in the brew. a couple pieces is enough to bring out the orange flavour and make it a nice cup, that’s a little different.

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.
