Finished this one off today. thanks for sharing variaTEA. While this has a really nice blend of spices, it’s not something i’d reach for all the time.

I’m drinking some ancient NecessiTeas Pumpkin Cheesecake tea thinking it wouldn’t have anymore flavor but it DOES. Lots. Yay.

noms. opened this one up today to give it a whirl. Not as strong as i remember (6 pearls) but it was super tasty. glad it’s back in my cupboard though.

Their new Organic Dragon Pearl seems stronger than these ever were for me.

MrQuackers

With these, you can put them in a mug with a filter on top on just leave the tea in there. Or just drink with them at the bottom of a tall glass.

this one feels a little brassy for my tastes this morning. i may not be a fan of this one…will need to try it a few more times and then share with others.

starting the morning off slowly with breakfast and tea with my other half before he abandons me and puppy. We’ve got a winery event tonight, so that will be fun. Mostly i just need a rest day since i’ve gone hard with running, walking and biking this past week. Don’t want to injure myself. Had a lovely time meeting dexter yesterday, though apparently we had to yell to talk more than i thought as my throats a little sore this morning haha

Evol Ving Ness

Have you killed off Dexter, Sil? We haven’t heard from her today.

Sil

it’s possible. I suspect however that she’s out enjoying the beautiful day. I had suggested High Park for the cherry blossoms.

Evol Ving Ness

Good suggestion. Sakura in High Park, nice. Where did you guys walk together?

Sil

up to summerhill from bay/bloor and then down to harbourfront center, and then back up to carlton/yonge :)

Sil

hahah that’s why omgsrsly said she’d experienced “Sil” I can’t help it…that’s a short walk..i can do it for days…

Evol Ving Ness

Well, I’ve been warned.

drank Root Beer Float by The NecessiTeas
8487 tasting notes

wheeeee! Another one from VariaTEA that i finished up today. While this is no rootbeer float from david’s tea, i am happy with this one. I think? it might just be a little less creamy and a little less sweet. Which i could fix easily by adding sugar and cream/milk heh. thanks for this adventure variaTEA!

Buckwheat matcha latte

this is an interesting sample from VariaTEA. What i liked – the level of sweetness and the balance between the matcha taste and the buckwheat. I wasn’t a fan of the little balls of buckwheat floating in the drink. still though, i’d probably drink this again but i wouldn’t actively seek it out

VariaTEA

I don’t even know what tea this is lol

Sil

Ooh maybe it was evol then? I forgot to put a name on it when I received it.

Evol Ving Ness

Hmm, Sil, perhaps I did add the Tartary buckwheat from YS to your bag, but it was labelled and there was no matcha in it.

Sil

Nope. Wasn’t a YS tea evol. This was a single serve package of. Buckwheat matcha.

Evol Ving Ness

Hmm, nope, I’m not the culprit then.

VariaTEA

Haha it could have been something I had lying around and just tossed it into the bag to share. Though I genuinely don’t remember this.

VariaTEA

Unless, could it have been one of the 52 Tea’s genmaichas? Those sometimes have matcha mixed in…though aren’t buckwheat.

Sil

nope, not 52 teas. now i wish i’d kept the packet for fun lol not a big deal in any case, it was interesting :)

Another one that i’ve hda a few times now before landing on a verdict. VariaTEA indulged me. What i like about this chai is that it’s simple…they give you the ability to make this without the traditional stove top format. I also like the spiciness of this one. It’s not terribly extreme and i could use a little more of a kick, but i like it’s uniqueness. I think though, that the star anise keeps this from being really great. It adds a sort of sweetness here that i don’t love. Still really fun to try and interesting!

drank Marie Antoinette by Ladurée

so busy! I’ve had this a couple times now thanks to VariaTEA and i think i’m landed on not for me. It’s a little too floral, but mostly it’s just not…strong enough? bold enough? It’s like the quiet kid sitting at the back of the class…could be brilliant, might just be a lazy ass…but we won’t find out ‘cause they’re all the way back there doing who knows what lol.

Terri HarpLady

And we probably don’t really want to know what they are up to :)

Evol Ving Ness

hhahha, fab description. I know that kid. I know that kind of tea. Now, I just need to try this one to see how well that matches up.

Sil

I’ll keep an eye out heh

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.
