Sample from VariaTEA I didn’t look this one up so had no idea what the flavouring was. It was a good cup but i had a lot of trouble figuring out what was i was drinking besides “fruity” On seeing the flavlouring, maaaybe i was picking up on the apricot since it wasn’t “red fruit” taste..but i couldn’t say for sure. Fun to try anyway!

sample from VariaTEA a decent cup for earlier this afternoon – black cherry, subtle like most of DF’s teas…brewed it at low temps for longer as i’ve found much success with most of their teas that way.

had this one today but in all honestly don’t remember much about it as i was distracted by the pupy :) Better review once i’ve had it again – it was enjoyable but there are some nuances to the tea that i didn’t really absorb.

fantastic “older” tea to kick off my morning today after playing with puppy in the park. Now we’ve got delicious breakfast and a wack of painting and other such things to do…only a few more weeks to try and get the house finished :)

this one keeps growing on me…it was ok then it got better…every time i have it i seem to like it a little bit more :) nearly done though, so that means another excuse to go over to tealish once i get a few more sipdowns in to pick up some herbal/fruit teas!

VariaTEA

If you do go over, let me know. I am in need of some Fairy Dust and just haven’t made time to get over there.

Will do!

Nicole/Tea-Historic

I’ll grab some of this kind of blend from Trail Lodge here in MO and you can compare. :)

drank Pumpkin Ginger Spice by Traveling Tea

Tea from last night….and probably today later haha. I’m nearly done this one which is nice – just in time for warmer weather to hopefully roll around. I mostly prefer drinking this in the dead of winter, though we didn’t get much of one of those this year :(

Evol Ving Ness

Hey, no complaining about the mild winter! Blizzards could well be around the corner.

Evol Ving Ness

Yeah, I know, check my optimism.

Sil

see i love winter….and the weird weather just means the environment is going to shit

drank Creamy Mint Ayran by Tealyra

Sample from Evol. So i’m for sure “off mint” at the moment. However… i’d like to try this one again in the future when i’m back on speaking terms with mint. Because the aroma of this one and the base tastes seems like i’d enjoy it.

Evol Ving Ness

I quite like this one and plan to have it around, so if I have some handy when you are back on mint, I’ll happily share.

drank Feng Shui Wellness by Tealux

same from Evol ving ness. This one doesn’t work for me.. somehow the ingredients don’t come together in any sort of harmony for me…and there’s an under lying sweetness that i can’t quite place. Not a bad tea, but nothing i need to have again. Though i’m always up for trying new things :)

Evol Ving Ness

Yeah, haven’t tried this one yet. :)

i do love this chai…not overpowering with clove/cinnamon…nicely balanced with cardamom and the tumeric. noms.

drank Winter by Turmeric Teas

noms. Enjoying these turmeric teas. While i wasn’t getting a lot of cinnamon at the tea festival, in this cup there’s a little more cinnamon that that sample. Still tasty, just something to note.

Evol Ving Ness

Somehow managed to miss this booth as well. Clearly I need the two days to do festival properly.

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.
