going to be a few of these samples today – trying to get through more of my samples so that i can focus on having a proper weigh of my cupboard this month sometime. this one is SUPER aromatic. Toffee explosion all over the house…making me want to go bake something haha. I probably overleafed this as my one complaint about the directions for this is 1-2 tsp, which isn’t very helpful when you’re dealing with BALLS of tea. Better would be something like 4 -6 balls or whatever per 8oz.

taste wise though, i’m a fan. the flavouring sort of stays in your mouth, so it’s not a tea i would drink a TON of, but for that indulgent dessert tea you need every now and then, this would be a good one. thanks Variatea!

This one sounds crazy good. Hoping that Lauren reblends it at some point so I can try it :D

the flavouring is really strong though…so lasts through multiple infusions and uh you need to clean your strainers out well after haha

sample from variaTEA and an opportunity to try this one again at a shorter steep – thankfully i remembered that’s what i wanted to do. it’s still nothing to fall in love with imo, but it’s a much better cup with a short steep.

NOM. this works in a travel mug, at least for me haha. I actually quite adore this one even if, as VariaTEA says – the chocolate factor is not really there. It’s one that i’d think about picking up on my own as there are a few from this company that i rather enjoy :)

all quite over here these days. I’ve been drinking tea but haven’t had much time to do anything but log them quickly as a “i drink this” I’ve been knee deep in interviews this past week and getting ready for the extra long weekend. I know folks in the US don’t get good friday off, but we do here in Canada AND i’m taking monday off as well for good measure. Gotta get a little RnR in..hoping to get outside, get on the bike, drink some tea, read some books, watch some shows…just have some relaxing moments :)

You go girl with your ambitions! And yay you for taking Monday off.

And why don’t Americans get Good Friday off? Boo for that.

more samples from VariaTEA. this one was pretty tasty today we well. Very light cherry, refreshing drink even with the marshmallows in it. Nothing too fake or cloying, more like a cherry freezy warmed up and with a little less intense cherry taste lol thanks V!

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.
