drank Assam by Joseph Wesley Black Tea

mmmmm when brewed properly this is a delicious cup. I continue to be a fan of JW teas.


Is it very astringent or malty or honey-like?


somewhere in the middle imo – if by honey like you’re thinking of a taiwanese assam

Another one from last night. This particular batch has a lot of cinnamon sticks, so i pulled a few out. The brew is slightly different than i’m used to – i think maybe this was from the bottom of the batch. Still though, it’s tasty and i still love it. Someday, i’ll get sick of it….but until then…bring it! :)

LOVE this tea. Seriously, chocolate goodness. I really want more of this. I love the chestnut flavouring – subtle enough to be present but not overpower the chocolate.


Bookmarked their site now. Looks like an interesting company!


down side is, they’re basically limited edition teas… but i can send you a few samples anytime if you want to try a few first

Warning, this is a strong tea – brewed hot it’s very strong and sugar is a requirement to take the edge off how strong it is. with just a little sugar, the brew smooths out and becomes a really nice juicy brew. I think brewed cold, you’d have the same problem – you’d need to add sugar. But otherwise i think this one is pretty decent.

Delicious strawberry black tea. A subtle strawberry but i love the black tea base that is being used now. It just works so much better.

Finished this up last night. I like the blueberry but the green tea base means this will never be an overwhelming favourite.

drank Banana Tie Guan Yin by 52teas

My internet went out yesterday so a few teas to backlog. This is a really lovely tea – i love the banana blend with the tie guan yin – i’d love more banana flavouring, but even without more banana flavouring, i am still loving this one.

Still not sure where i sit with this tea. I don’t dislike it, but i don’t love it. Maybe i need to try brewing it gonfu or something. There’s a sweetness to this that i don’t typically associate with my favourite keemuns, which is maybe why this is throwing me off. I’ll also have to share this one with a few folks and see what they think. :)

enjoying a cup and resteeps of this one today since i’m at home for the morning. I vastly prefer drinking this tea in a mug versus travel mug so i’m trying to drink it on weekend as a treat. There’s just something about this one that makes me happy. thanks again for sharing yours with me omgsrsly

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.
