Fjellrev

Still a classic!

Terri HarpLady

Yup, you could have much worse things to drink, LOL

Another one from VariaTea I’m still not done with taking a break from peach. However, the aroma of this peach didn’t set me off immediately and the peach is almost the after taste. Initial sips of this are…heat, spice then the peach. It’s an interesting blend but i don’t need it in my cupboard.

VariaTEA

I figured I would send this your way since you didn’t mind Peach Crostata.

Sil

yep. it was tasty just not a repurchase need

Cold brew of this today and it’s not half bad. I added a little honey to it but on the whole, this is something i’d drink again as a cold brew. It wasn’t quite what i hoped it would be but i still am enjoying it. I can taste the pine, berries and the smooth black base.

Final count: 45 (added a few teas to my cupboard….)

Helena

Murky water.. ICK!! hope you have something yummy to wash the evil taste of that out of your mouth.

VariaTEA

Glad I wasn’t the only one who got nothing though I’m sorry it was terrible

Tea makes everything interesting, even watching paint dry.

taking a break to enjoy some fruity goodness. I know i didn’t love this like omg buy more of this last time i picked it up, but it is a really nice treat when it’s this hot/humid out. i like the tartness of this that turns slightly sweet.

Evol Ving Ness

Oh yeah, that humidity is taxing.

Helena

Humidity is killing us all slowly. Thank goodness we have some tea to stop us from going crazy.

oh man. i really wish i’d been able to get more of this one. It is delightful!

Creamy vanilla, cocoa, pecans, and malt..smooth with no bitterness. Yep. i’d get more of this if it came up again.

Terri HarpLady

Damn, that does sound good, even for someone like me who mostly hates flavored teas, LOL.

Sil

it was super noms.

Helena

Yeah I agree that does sound like a tasty treat.

Fjellrev

Right? I really hope this’ll come back.

in my contiuning effort to sipdown the mass of puerh i have at my place, i pulled this one out. Trying to start with the puerh that i have smaller amounts of, so i can start to knock them out of the park. I’m close to having more puerh in my cupboard than anything else haha. still enjoy this one, though it’s not something i desperately need in my cupboard. it’s a sort of every day puerh for me – tasty both western or gongfu.

Terri HarpLady

I need to start pulling my Master Han teas out again. And my other puers.

Sil

yep…i’ve got nearly 2kg of puerh…takes up most of my actual tea that i have.

Terri HarpLady

I refuse to weigh mine, LOL, but it is the majority of my teas now. I’m gonna pull this one out and drink it this afternoon, so we can drink the same tea in the same day :)

Sil

weighing your tea is an enlightening experience haha i started the year at over 4kg…and i’m down to like 2.5kg…so yay for that!

Helena

I shall weigh nothing and be the happier for my ignorance :D

Started the day out with this one again. Trying to save my LB when i’m working from home since i’d like to wait on a sale with YS before ordering more. Also i have teas galore coming in…i hope.

Terri HarpLady

I placed a significant black tea order from Teavivre during the sale, and although I didn’t buy any of this one this time around, I made it one of my 3 free samples.

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.
