minty, vanilla goodness. nothing super special about this one beyond the name… for those of you that know helen, she’s still made because she doesn’t have a new crown, but she’s making up for it by wearing a helmet now. special helmet for a special dino. enjoyed this tea courtesy of missB :)

drank Flaming Prince Charming by T-We Tea

tried this one today..not sure if it’s the age of the tea or how i brewed it but it was largely flavourless with a hint of coconut. Sad really. I’ll hold off rating just in case, as the combination to me sounded like something that could be super tasty.

drank White Nectarine by DAVIDsTEA

Picked this one up from either keychange or variaTEA sorry ladies, i can’t remember who. To me this is a nectarine fail. This doesn’t taste like nectarine at all. it’s not a BAD tasting tea, but this isn’t what i think of when i bite into a juicy nectarine. Oh well, can’t win them all!

drank Vintage Violet by Petali Teas

Another from VariaTEA – this one was almost a win for me. The fruit side of this tea is good, but i am not a fan of “violet” flavouring. The tea base works well with this combination though, so it’s a win that way – it’s just not a tea for me, so holding off rating it as well :)

mmm a small bit of this from variaTEA was a nice opportunity to revisit this one. I still prefer it as a latte, but it’s a nice cup of tea on this dreary sort of morning. …er afternoon haha. So glad that it’s a long weekend AND my other half has at least 2 of the 3 days off! woot woot! Maybe we’ll get a bike ride in this weekend.

mmmmm another delicious tea from Nicole I am really loving this one today. This is a really great malty and yet not bready, sort of tea. I don’t want to call it sweet, because that’s the wrong way to describe it…but there is a lightness and almost sweet like quality buried in the malt. thanks so much for sharing nicole!

mmm thanks for this Nicole! I had another cup of this today and it’s delicious. This could for sure be an every day tea in my cupboard in future, especially if i ever make it to NY for tea shopping. :) it’s a long weekend here in canada (and for our us friends) so my goal this weekend is to try and get myself as far down with my cupboard as possible. stretch goal of 100 but “realistic goal” of 120 heh

drank Sangria by Aromatica Fine Teas

Another tea from variaTEA and this one is pretty darn good. I think it does a good job of capturing the essence of sangria – it’s certainly not just a hibby fruit tea.

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.
