my taste buds are different that yours! haha this to me is SUCH a boring tea…no flavour, just a middle of the road meh…nothing like the taiwanese teas i pick up from TTC that have honey notes and are deliciously amazing. an average cup for me :)

That’s too bad. I wish they carried more solid teas, both unflavoured and flavoured.

Another tea….had this one today at some point today :) Almost getting to the end of it, which bodes well for my Feb sipdown goal :) Especially if my teas from November continue to not show up.

Final Count: 91

What’s with Canada Post? I’ve had orders (non tea) in limbo for that long too. Everyone who placed international orders in Oct & Nov seem to be having that problem.

Sil

My teavivre order finaally got sent BACK to china first week of Feb, for an order from November. So they’re resending the order. My Yunnan Sourcing order still hasn’t even arrived in Canada..scratch that, just checked…Ordered Nov 25, arrived in canada Feb 10. LOL i can only imagine how broken my tea is going to be now :(

Evol Ving Ness

Why did they send it back to China? What’s up with that?

Sil

no idea.

Ubacat

Hope your tea arrives safe and unbroken!

Sil

thanks! here’s hoping :)

Fjellrev

WTF, since November? They’re sure setting some new records.

Evol Ving Ness

My Christmastime order from YS came in around two weeks. Maybe yours got stuck in the holiday traffic. But damn.

Sil

yeah everything from boxing day appears to have been delayed

drank Gingerbread Houjicha by 52teas

Another blast from a more recent past courtesy of Evol. Just a lovely cup to revisit – i was really feeling the gingerbread in this one after our bike ride. Was a great pairing with the outside weather and being back inside. Thanks again for all the lovely treats evol!

Evol Ving Ness

Are you finished them all already, Sil?

Sil

not a chance.. still have oodles left to play with!

Evol Ving Ness

Yay! I am enjoying your spin on things.

Another Evol sample….

Upside of this one? LOVE the melon flavouring….but you know what i don’t need? SPicey melon lol. However, that being said, this is as close to it’s name as i think you could get. It’s really well done for what it’s supposed to be, just happens to not be what i want with melon. I did appreciate the spiciness in this one though…i imagine it paired with a nice solid black tea :)

MrQuackers

Cucumber water is one of my favourites. David’s tea has a melon one, as well. Spicy and melon? Not as much :)

drank Chocolate Delight by Tealux

Sample from evol ving ness – another visit from a past friend. This is sort of like a cup of watered down hot chocolate. It’s tasty but i don’t think it’s something that needs to reside in my cupboard full time. It was a nice lunch time treat today before “fat-urday”

(which has nothing to do with weight and everything to do with riding a fat bike in the snow..)

Another tea from this morning. Still feeling very meh about this tea. Not going to be a restock unless someone can convince me otherwise via a spectacular harvest or something. Just not a lot of complexity here.

drank Phoenix Pearl by Zen Tea
8269 tasting notes

Sample from Evol Ving ness funny how compared to others…for me this tea was nothing special. It had a sort of flat flavour and while i drank it, it just didn’t call out to me. Maybe this is a different harvest than previous years but i was sort of "meh’ about it…

No sipdowns lately…super busy week. I had to condense 5 days in to 3…but that means TWO DAYS OFF BABY! (and then my regular weekend days too!). Super excited to have some free time to just relax, watch tv, have a nice evening in the hotel courtesy of work..paint the house…but mostly…relax! wheee!

Evol Ving Ness

Hurray for time off to chill! And tea, of course.

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.
