drank Blueberry Bliss by Tealish
8954 tasting notes

One of my new teas…Not sure how i feel about it yet since i started with a cold brew. there’s a taste here that makes this a less harmonious blend than i’d like. Maybe it’s the orange peel? I still like it as i’ve been dying for some fruit teas but not sure that this will be a repurchase for me in the future.

drink drink drink…. i can totally get through 165 grams of tea in a week right? especially if i haven’t weighed my teas in a bit? :D

K S

Sounds like someone has a new and big shipment on the way. You can do it!

Sil

haha that’s just to get to my sipdown goal from the teas i brought home yesterday…if i factored in teas in the mail..well here’s hoping they arrive in august haha

Fjellrev

You can always eat the tea for a fibre boost if you’re in a bind?

Sil

Helena

Don’t you just hate it when the teas refuse to cooperate? quit giving me grass and cough up some more vanilla!

Sil

drank Cardamom French Toast by DAVIDsTEA

Farewell delicious tea! Unlike the first time this left my cupboard, i’m not overly desperate to get more back in my cupboard. Having gone through about 250g of the stuff, i’m good taking a break for now until winter rolls around. The only thing that made me a little sad was how much sugar was sitting at the bottom of the container when i scooped up the last of the tea. bleh.

Helena

ewww… leftover sugar.

kicking the morning off right. Work from home day since i need to hit the dr’s office today. I picked up a few fruit teas yesterday (400g) lol so i need to get some serious sipping done before August is upon us if i want to make my weight goal. On the upside, i’m ok if i don’t since i know that the new teas will be gone before you know it. This is another one of my oldest teas and very near the end of it’s life here. Only a couple more cups worth before it too will be gone. On the plus side it means maybe i can justify picking up another damn fine tea!

drank Vanilla Matcha by DAVIDsTEA

had this one in OJ this morning – which of course now always makes me think of poor variatea who can’t make this work. lol worked for me as always, though i do wish there was less sugar in these matcha from david’s.

VariaTEA

Hahaha I’m just not destined to enjoy creamsicles

Sil

i picked up orange creamsicle from necessiteas just to try that out…so maybe that will do better for you ha!

Helena

I wish they had a vanilla matcha without the coconut sugar. I just found that after having some other straight vanilla matchas I just couldn’t handle the sugar in this one anymore. Poor VariaTEA!! Some things are just not meant to be.

Sil

agreed helena (Welcome back btw).

Helena

Thanks Sil! I see the honeydew matcha has cane sugar instead but I’m not sure if that would work either. I have been spoiled by Matcha Outlet (Red Leaf Tea)

Haven’t been drinking much tea over the past week or so because i’m sick, it’s stupidly humid and hot and i have NO CHOICES in my cupboard lol I broke down last night and made a small purchase and today i’m hoping to hit tealish to get a few fruit herbals since i have zero of those in my cupboard and they’re a necessity in the summer. Here’s hoping i don’t go too crazy though as i do have a teavivre order that may never arrive on it’s way and a few teas at VariaTEA’s house tha ti need to pick up (and jam!) woot!

Evol Ving Ness

Your two morning posts are full of happy and smiles for me, Sil—what with the creamsicle, and the wee tea tantrum, and the little surge of shopping, and the overseas order that may never arrive, and the hopes of restraint in the next tea shop, and the tea visit with VariaTEA.

Except for the sick part. Sorry that you are under the weather. It’s tricky staying well or doing much of anything in this nonsense. I was hoping that the rain would break the humidity somewhat, but it is still painful.

Sil

boardgames and tea were purchased today..Life is great!

Helena

Yeah it’s been stupidly humid over here too. I was really sick with a bad cold. I actually missed four shifts of work because breathing was such an effort. I swear I coughed so hard I bruised my ribs. I hope you get better soon!!! (I was over the moon once I could breathe normally again)

Fjellrev

Oh no, I hope you will feel better soon, darling. My mom always told me since I was a kid how Toronto is known to get ridiculously humid in the summer due to the neighbouring Great Lakes so I don’t envy you at all.

Helena

Anyone want to file a cease and desist order on the humidity? I know I would if I thought it would work :D

Sil

fjellrev – it’s so gross. I miss AB summers so much.
Helena – no kidding!!!

Another one from earlier today. I’ve got an annoying cough that doesn’t want to go away but i’m not sick. bah. this was the right blend of creaminess + green that i was hoping for.

VariaTEA

I drank this when I was recovering from surgery. Perhaps it is a healing tea :P

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.
