oh man this was tasty today. First off HELLO lime smell. Like real limes…freshly squeezed. obviously there’s a bunch of coconut in here as well. Brewed, this was actually pretty darn refreshing. Not sure if i hit the sweet spot of what but it was exactly what i wanted it to be, even as it cooled. Glad i have a little more of this to see if i can replicate :)

mmmmmmmm… pulled this one out since i was making a white tea anyway and i’m glad i did. OMGsrsly sent this one to me, though it was MissB who sent it along. I’d forgotten how much i like this particular tea – it’s a white tea without being “boring” as i often find many straight white teas to be. sweet notes.

VariaTEA sample :)

this one is quite tasty. Steeped for 2.5 mins at about 185 since i wasn’t sure how to treat it. It’s like an orange scone with bright zingy notes that are likely the cranberries popping through. I wouldn’t restock this one, but only because i don’t drink that many white teas. This one is really nice though :) glad to experience it. Thanks lady!

Sample from VariaTEA. not sure about this one. There’s something weird about the smell of the brewed tea that throws me off here. It’s got a feel of french toast…but i can’t shake the weird taste/smell combo.

NOMS. Sample from VariaTEA i like this one! I’m not sure i’m really feeling the whole waffle vibe, but the blackberry/maple flavouring is really tasty.

I KNOW that i’ve had this before. Strange that there’s no review on them. Either way, i opted to pull this one out as one of my older/smaller amount puerhs to try and get at least ONE puerh this week. this one has started out smooth, slightly smokey and a little dark. This should be a nice treat today :)

Once this cools right down, it is a light strawberry cream cheese. When it was hot, there was a bitterness there that i didn’t like. I think i’m going to reserve me rating for the moment and try this again, steeped at a much lower temperature. It was tasty…but not quite..there. Thanks VariaTEA.

Final Count: 89

drank Mayan Hot Cocoa by The NecessiTeas

Holy hannibel this is sweet. I think it’s the marshmallows and the sugar – ie, i would be happy with one or the other :) it may also be the cinnamon as well…giving that sense of sweet. It’s not bad, but i’d like to try this again with a shorter steep :)


Besides the cinnamon does it have any heat? Always liked the idea of spicy cocoa and this kind of blend looks neat! :)


Sadly not really, it might be the sample I had but it was mostly sweet, cinnamon, chocolate vs being spicy

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.
