Passing the last little bit of this off to tea friends to try. I don’t think i’ve shared this one with them but if i have…well oopsy. lol Sometimes with all the swapping over time, it’s hard to remember which i’ve shared. This one is enjoyable but is fussy…sometimes it’s SPOT on…other times, not so much.

I don’t take this one out often because i never want it to go away but today i needed something light, and delicious and hell, it was a nice warm spring day today so it seemed fitting. Again, this one never fails to disappoint.

Finished this one over the weekend as well. A really great combination of sweet and spicy. Not much else to say beyond the fact that this would have been a restock :)

I’ve got some catch up to do for sure. Had more of this over the past couple of days…still enjoying the last of stacy’s creations. Also still really glad i have bunches left :)


This one is soo good. Glad I was able to get some before it sold out! :D

The last of my samples from Wymm Tea. I have to say i’m impressed with this companies offerings so far. They have all been thoroughly enjoyable even if i haven’t managed to get very good descriptions of the teas out there imo. I recommend giving them a shot if you’re a puerh fan and maybe even if you’re not. As i’ve said before, i generally prefer shou but i’m not opposed to trying out sheng’s as one of my favourite puerhs is a sheng :)

this one is another that i would gladly put in my cupboard and will likely order once i’m allowed to. this one started out on the softer side of things but quickly turned in to a much stronger brew. I didn’t experience any sort of bitterness in these steeps but i was keeping them short with a bit cooler temp than normal.

drank Berry Poppins by DAVIDsTEA

i tried this one in store yesterday – it was fairly tasty but i picked up 7g to try at home as well so mini cupboard increase even though i’m not supposed to buy tea so that i can make sure this isn’t something i want to buy a larger amount of when i can finally buy teas again heh. i enjoyed this one in store…slight tang, mostly just a cup of berry goodness. Not overly sweet so yay for that as well.

Final Count: 130


I tried this yesterday as well! Maybe when I’m ready to come out of my blanket fort I will report on my cold brew. :)

drank Strawberry Fields by DAVIDsTEA

i picked this one up to try yesterday as well without looking at any reviews. The verdict? this is one of the worst strawberry blacks that i’ve ever had. Seriously. it smelled amazing and tasted like nothing you’d want to try. artificial and weird. gross.

Sakura Sushi

Oh, no! That’s too bad – I love strawberry blacks and was planning on picking some up. Guess I shouldn’t bother.

Maddy Barone

Oh, no. I just ordered 50 grams. Hope I like it better than you did. :(


i hope it works for you Maddy!


I definitely felt the same. This got dumped :(


Wow. That bad? Ok, then pass!

leaf in hot water

good to know to steer clear of this one!

Maddy Barone

Since I don’t have a sense of smell, maybe I won’t taste the artificialness.

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.
