Sample from crowkettle ok distraction set in while i went to go write the tasting note here. I wreked my foot this past weekend, so this morning, the husband drove me to physio so that i could get an assessment and now i’ve got to go to my dr to see if she can get me some x-rays so that we can figure out what exactly i’ve done. Ultrasound indicates i “probably” haven’t broken any bones…but a few more tests to be sure. All this..2 wks before i’m supposed to be hiking in the grand canyon hahahaha

so i don’t love mead. but i was hoping that this concoction would be up my alley since i do really enjoy genmaicha. However, this is pretty close to mead and therefore not quite what i want. Glad to try it though as it was calling to me in my last order :)

tea-sipper

Oh no! Hopefully all is well in two weeks.

Ouf! Sil, I hope you are back in business in no time. Glad to hear that you are being taken care of. Send husband for epsom salts for soaking in the bath. That goes a long way in helping the things that can be easily helped.

(Good thing we did our chocolate tour last week.)

Roswell Strange

Curl up with a good cuppa, and take it easy!

Sil

Thanks all! X-rays come back tomorrow so hopefully there’s no fracture or anything. Physio seemed to have helped with movement, though I still have t red, swollen extrawide ankle lol. Here’s hoping that I can walk soon, even if it means no running for a while so that we can still hike!

Evol Ving Ness

Epsom salts, Sil, epsom salts. And tea, of course.

CrowKettle

Oh, man! I hope you a speedy recovery and diagnosis! These things have the tendency for bad timing.

mrmopar

Soak and wrap.

Dexter

:( Hope the x-rays come back negative and that you are able to get back to normal soon.

drank Hot Buttered Spiced Rum by 52teas
8570 tasting notes

Another from crowkettle to finish off my green afternoon. This one is right up my alley even if it is a green tea :) the green base makes it sort of lighter and refreshing and just works well with the spices that are going on here. Not sure if i’m feeling the “buttered” aspet of the tea but i’m going to enjoy drinking up the rest of the sample :)

Final Count: 80

drank Lime Jello Salad Green Tea by 52teas

another cup this afternoon. I’ve had this one before so i knew what to expect. Mostly it was the same lime jello salad that i’ve enjoyed in the past, if a little more subdued in the flavour department. I enjoy this one – thanks for sharing it with me crowkettle

Another sample from Crowkettle always nice to visit greens – never my first choice but in small, drinkable quantities i can get behind them. I’m no dragonwell expert but this was nice. light, refreshing, juicy and slightly sweet. Thanks crowkettle!

drank Lemon Lavender Creamsicle by 52teas
8570 tasting notes

first tasting note on this one – that’s unfortunate haha This is another sample from crowkettle First off, when someone says creamsicle my first thought is orange creamsicle. So drinking this i needed to keep reaminding myself that it was leamon/lavender NOT orange. Thankfully, this isn’t a bouquet of lavender – which is one of those scents that i am just not a fan of. That being said, this is a relatively subdued blend. It’s not super lemoney, lavender like…more of a light lemon cream with something going on in the background that i wouldn’t necessarily call out as being lavender. decent enough blend, but not my favourite.

Evol Ving Ness

The name alone is intoxicating. I am interested in hearing what others have to say about this. ok, maybe not, because I want some and that will only frustrate me.

CrowKettle

I don’t have a lot but I can send you some if you want :P

Evol Ving Ness

Thanks, CrowKettle, for your kind offer. If you don’t have a lot, I don’t want you to lose out on something you like and are still investigating.

I’d be happy to do a swap of other stuff sometime if you are interested though. No pressure, of course.

CrowKettle

I don’t worry about all that! I’m not really swapping right now because of a green tea overload, but if you PM with some teas you’re interested I’ll try and accommodate :)

Evol Ving Ness

Thanks, CrowKettle. So far, all the swaps I’ve participated in have just been random. Each person seems to have their own approach. Not to worry, one day.

drank Toasted Marshmallow by 52teas
8570 tasting notes

Sample from Crowkettle who managed to up my cupboard to 80 haha. I really wanted to love this one, but i think i prefer the gemaicha bases to the hojicha. I imagine the hojicha could make it more roasty but i’m just getting a slight marshmallow flavour. I’ve got a little more to try so i’l see if i can make it work a little better next time.

CrowKettle

I’m with you on the Houjicha

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.
