last tea of the evening. i have a few more cups worth of this one and then it will be time to say good bye. I won’t be sad when this one is done, even though i enjoy it. Such seems to be the case with most david’s teas that i like..give me about 50g and then i don’t need it ever again haha. :)

Final Count: 104


104? woooo you go girl !!!!!


yeah… not sure if i can squeeze 4 more in before month end but it’ll be close enough..unless tea shows up in the mail hahaha

french tea for paris planning lol. I am still enjoying this tea, and i really love the muslin bag sachets that MF has. Something about them just feels fancy! haha. I really don’t feel like i drank enough tea today. Ah well… c’est la vie!

Another sipdown for today. I’m still hoping to get to 100 before month end but i’ve got a few left to go and not a lot of teas in sipdown range heh. Oh well, just means an even harder target in April lol this one was just the right balance of malty and bold today.

I pulled this one out to try today. My other half and i didn’t get much done with errands but we did finally get around to cleaning the house – we’ve been letting that slide lately. This has been in my cupboard for an eternity…because i bought a bunch of puerh when i first got into tea and then was too scared to try it. So now i’m focusing on getting through all of the older puerh samples in my cupboard.

First few steeps were creamy…sort of prune like with later steeps being more vanilla and sweet like. This is one i might suggest for someone just getting in to puerh, and one that i should have had ages ago. Just might need to pick up a cake of this with my next mandala order.

so i’ve had this a couple times now…i’m actually surprised no one’s written anything about it. Long story short… it’s not bad, but it’s not my favourite. I’m thinking maybe jonesmcomgjonessrsly might find this one appealing since it’s on a base she loves. I’ll finish it if i must, but if it can find a happier home, that would be better. :)

Final Count: 106 (6 more to go for month end!)


Mmhmm, because she loves the base so much, I’d also suspect she would like it. I thought it was ok, but I preferred the nut flavourings with the base instead of fruity flavours.

this was another tea from today that i sadly just didn’t pay attention to. I was exausted after running around today and just wanted something warm and tasty. this fit the bill but outside of that….no idea lol thank goodness i’ve got more to drink and focus on!

i had this one today while my other half and i wandered about for a while. we tried out a london fog donut today as well…that was interesting and delicious!

this tea? I don’t remember much beyond being seriously satisfied that i’d pick this one to have today. I’ll have to have it again soon to get a better note. heh

The story of the travelling tea sample….this one comes to me from Terri… who received it from stephanie who got it from boychik who apparently got it from tea explorer? good times with tea friends! I’m not sure this one is for me, but i’m not sure it’s not for me either. I’ll have to try a few more heicha before i decide where i feel about all of these. the first few steeps where sweet with a strange taste to them….later steeps were a little darker… that’s all i’ve got as this was a yesterday tea :)

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.
