This one is another lighter brew from Teabento. It’s malty, slightly chocolatey but more as a subnote to me. I like bold, brisk teas so this one isn’t for me but it’s a tasty tea and right up there for anyone who likes this type of tea.

Yep, same experience with this one. Too light and thin for me, especially compared to Jiri. I don’t think anything will compare to Jiri though…

I wonder how many others of these we both picked?

not a lot but a few cross overs :) I went with black, black and moar black

Another cup of this today to try and see if i can get through the last of my samples. End of September is coming up soon! I rather enjoy this one, though i’m finding on the second time around there’s a bit of astringency in the last bit of the after taste. Leaves my mouth a little dry. However, the brew is sweet, plumy and quite enjoyable! thanks again tea bento!

Hilarious. Three for three! (In what samples we chose)

drank Masala Chai by Chaiwala

Had a cup of this one since it’s in keeping with my theme of sipdowns. This is one of my oldest teas and i’d like to finish this and the rooibos version up before the end of the month. This cup was a little on the spicy side but still had the deliciousness that i love from this chai. Suspect i won’t pick up more at the tea festival this year though as i never seem to find the time to make a proper cup of chai on the stovetop and for this particular blend it’s the best way to have it!

Final Count: 42 (until i add the ttc teas that showed up)

These Chaiwala teas are very tasty though. I managed to buzz through their sample table where they were cooking up that milky goodness at the festival an embarrassing number of times and will likely do so again at the nearest opportunity. :)

Another one from this morning. This is a tasty treat. It will be interesting to see how this stacks up against the TTC teas that just arrived 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.
