drank Purple Mint by Justea
8556 tasting notes

Sample from Justea (i don’t know why i keep writing it with two t’s). I’ve been a slacker in getting a review out for this one, mostly because i need to be in the mood for mint. Mint isn’t really something i just drink a lot of and this is a MINT tea. peppermint and spearmint makes for a lot of mint. It works though. What doesn’t really work for me is the addition of the rose petals – though thankfully they’re not overpowering. I want to play with this one again, but this is a night evening cup of tea for me when the night is a little cooler. I like being able to sit out and inhale the mint.

Thanks for the sample Justea! I wouldn’t have picked this one out myself but it’s good when you want a little mint in your life ;)

You know, I really enjoy a good mint julep. I don’t drink them often but when I find a good mint tea, I enjoy it almost as much.

Need to try this one as a latte. As a normally brew cup it was ok but nothing really fantastic. Coffee, creamy, chocolate ish.

drank Coquito by A Quarter to Tea

Sample from Crowkettle earlier today. this was an interesting treat. Smooth, creamy deliciouness with a hint of something else going on in the background. One of those teas that is subtle and sweet. I rather enjoyed it and wish i had more to play with to really get the sense of the other flavours. Thanks for the share CK!

drank Strawberry Shake by DAVIDsTEA

Finished this one off today as well – go go sipdowns! Now if only i could spend more time with my puerh. Not sad to see this one go – the past few david’s teas have been less than interesting to me and the few that I’ve picked up are average at best. This one was alright, but nothing special enough to have me want a green flavoured in my cupboard. decent enough strawberry creamy flavour though.

Finished this one off today. Again thank you crowkettle! This doesn’t need a place in my home – there are other milk oolongs that i prefer but it was a nice treat to have since i don’t really stock oolongs in my cupboard :)

Glad i have more of this from crowkettle to have later. Busy verdict – i like it! It’s not too green oolongy and has a really nice finish to it. I’d call it slightly floral but i wouldn’t want to scare those of us who don’t love floral away. :)

My puerh for today – hopefully 1 of at least 2 but i’m not putting any money on that. :) i really do love that this one can be brewed western or gonfu for a delicious cup of tea. Smooth, creamy..full bodied. I just like it.

today this tastes fruity to me. I’m not getting chocolate and malt notes so i dunno what’s up with that. Oh well! still a tasty cup :)

on a missions today even if work is going to do everything it can to stop me. 1) drink up a few samples 2) get my review for justtea’s mint tea up 3) have at least 1 puerh

However before i got in to all that, i wanted a couple cups of black to kick off the day. Pulled this one out as it’s one of my oldest teas and i’d like to get around to finishing it off someday. It also tastes better in a mug than my work travellers, so good enough reason to drink it. Still enjoy this, though i think i now prefer some of A&D’s other blacks like black sunshine a little more.

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.
