must remember to always pick up at least a sample of each years harvest of this and zhu rong because they both are amazing or not depending on the harvest lol.

so if anyone else out there hates this one, I’ll take more. It seems like the more i have it, the more it grows on me. I am loving the orange flavour in this one and i’ve only got maybe a cup left heh

Cavocorax

I drank through this one so quickly!

with this one, i’m just trying to pull it out often so that i can work my way through my stash. This and LB are the two verdant teas i have “overflow” of so i want to get through more of this so that i have more teas to order from verdant later in the year heh

noms. I pulled this one out to have again from the MissB stash. I love how deep and puerh like this is, with the flavours being much more in the background but still present and tasty.

i’ve had this so many times that there isn’t much else to say besides the fact that i’m looking forward to trying out the 2015 version heh :)

drank Cafe Caramel Pu-erh by Lemon Lily
8570 tasting notes

after dinner latte – though tonight i used a sifter to get rid of all the sugar in my bag before i brewed it…HOLY CRIPES there was a lot of sugar in this. Lemon Lily – that is a vote against you since at the rate i was looking at, at least 20% of the bag’s weight was that sugar. and really? if i want a tea that is sweet, i can add my own. but you know what? this tea doesn’t need it.

Final Count: 155 which is up, but not so bad since i added teas to my cupboard today AND managed to sip some down!

Cavocorax

Cripes, I haven’t even tried this one yet! :O But I agree – that’s way too much sugar!

drank Flower Pu er by Wait Tea House

I had this earlier tonight and all i can really say is that it’s an interesting tea. flower made with puerh and dian hong. it’s not something i would seek out to get more of as it’s on the lighter side for me…but it IS a pretty tea and nice enough.

mmmmm this was a shared purchase from the toronto tea festival between Cavocorax and i. I’m only just now getting a chance to try it out, but i swore she had it before me. Seems like steepster ate her note or i’m imagining things. :)

I’ve been brewing this gonfu this afternoon….im’ not getting a citrus note…just a sweet mineral like note that turns almost cocoa-y…maybe? I think i need a few more steepings..haha more to come but i’m happy with this pick from zhen tea!

Cavocorax

I did! I swear I even added it to the system? I remember I did it as a gongfu style cup and it really, REALLY, tasted like mushrooms. So savory and weird. It took a few cups (in our new teaware!) to get that to calm the heck down and taste better.

Sil

ok phew…glad i wasn’t imagining things..

Pretty sure this is the first hei cha that i’ve had – again courtesy of my tea sister Terri Sadly, all i remember about this tea was it’s really unique taste…and finding myself at the bottom of the cup way too quickly. I’m glad i have more to have again when i can get a proper tasting note up for it. :)

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.
