Sample from VariaTEA This one is way too sweet for me. WAY too sweet. For me, this doesn’t taste like straight maple syrup, it tastes like artificial maple flavour. It’s again, not a bad tea but i think it would have been better if i’d made it as a latte to cut through some of the sweetness. Still, glad to have tried it!

Another sample from VariaTEA. this one is a miss for me. It’s not a bad tasting tea, it’ s just not sure of what it wants to be. All i got from this one for the most part was “sweet”

VariaTEA

This is actually a good description of this tea tbh.

kittenna gave me a small sample of this one and it was pretty tasty. It’s not as intensely creamy orange as i’d like but it was really enjoyable.

Final Count: 92

another one back in my cupboard from variatea…still a lovely cup, though it feels like the flavouring is starting to go. Not the end of the world though because i love white rhino :)

drank Choco Blues by TeaTaxi
8269 tasting notes

Sample from VariaTEA This is a decent enough tea. I still think my other fav bluebrry tea tops this one, but i do like the blending of this one. I wouldn’t say that there’s a lot of chocolate in this though…it’s closer to a straight blueberry tea imo than a chocolate blueberry. But it’s tasty. thanks variatea!

drank Cranberry Glow by TeaTaxi
8269 tasting notes

sample from variatea this is more green tea like than the AU one i had. I don’t love this one, but that’s MY preferences, not the tea. I’m getting much more of a green tea vibe from this one which means i like it less just because of that. I DO like the pop of cranberry in this one – it’s got a tart, fruity taste. If you like green teas, this one is probably not half bad :)

drank Big Easy by August Uncommon Tea

NOMS. dexter sent this one my way along with a number of other samples i’m excited todive in to even if i’m really close to 100 again. My weight is still under what i was hoping for the end of year so i’m laughing. :)

I really like this one. It’s, as dex mentioned, not as out there as other AU blends i’ve had but i love this a lot more than i thought i would. probably because it doesn’t come across as a green tea lol this is really much more pineapple, caramel donut….not as light as like an angel food cake with pineapple..but it’s very dessert like. am a fan!

Woo! You’re going to be at 75 by Monday, aren’t you?

Sil

haha not likely. Wine touring this weekend so guessing end of the month.

Dexter

Happy you liked this one – in hind site, I should have sent you a sample of Dark Iris, but it’s oolong and I hadn’t tried it yet when I put your package together. It’s base is really non invasive and the fruit flavors are nice.

Sil

not to worry. I’ll have to sit down and figure out if there is a need to order things once i’m back this weekend. I’m so happy to be under 4kg…

Dexter

I haven’t looked at my spread sheet since early May. That might be a project for this weekend.

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.
