yes! Another good one…seems like the 2 i saved for last to open up are the two that are most reminiscent of my favourite teas from TTC historically. seriously…sweet, honey, deliciousness. Perfect for this COLD day!

drank S'mores by The NecessiTeas
8960 tasting notes

Noms. Almost done this one but SOMEONE is making an order with this company so maybe i’ll pick up some more of their teas hahaha

VariaTEA

Is the “someone” me? Since I have not decided that’ll be a thing but I also really want fluffernutter tea

Sil

haha yes. But i am NOT looking at their teas in case you decide you’re not doing it…and so that maybe i can manage to NOT buy teas…

Do you banana?

If you haven’t had a Fluffernutter, then you are missing out! It is a wonderful concoction of marshmallow fluff and peanut butter in a delightfully tasty sandwich! These were my favorite growing up, but my mom made them even tastier by adding (in my best Minions voice) BANANAS!! If you love the classic combo of peanut butter, toasted marshmallows and banana, imagine that in a cup of tea! Make sure to add banana to your next Fluffernutter, you’ll thank me!

Sil

shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

Sil

there’s also an eggnog tea haha

Evol Ving Ness

You know, if need another body to throw in another couple of bags in the order, I might be the person you are looking for.

Evol Ving Ness

And by couple, I might mean five.

VariaTEA

Sil, are you talking about EggNaughTea? Cuz I have that one

VariaTEA

I can share…unless I finished it as a latte two days ago

VariaTEA

And now I’m on the site…darn you guys and the enabling!

VariaTEA

Fluffernutter is out of stock. I’m out.

Sil

hahaha i will resist….actually contemplating a the o dor order…

Evol Ving Ness

When I was on the site, I noticed that there were only two fluffernutters available, but yanno, I didn’t say anything because I didn’t want to enable—any more than I had already :)

It’s all good though because nobody here really needs more tea, right?

And I bet they’ll make it again, really soon even, and then, we will be all over it.

drank Pumpkin Chai by 52teas
8960 tasting notes

Ok this as a latte is my favourite. Something about the pumpkin just really works. Little sad that i didn’t pick this one up as it’d be a great fall/winter latte for the next few months. The rest of my sample is off to Variatea so that she can try it out!

Final Count: 42

drank Banana Split by A Quarter to Tea

had this one earlier this afternoon before i tried to go out for a run….i mean i succeeded but it started snow/raining so i had to call it early so that i didn’t cramp up in the cold/wet. Oh well, at least i got out for a bit. Still enjoying this one – i like the banana/strawberry combination :)

drank Rooibos Masala Chai by Chaiwala

Finished this one off today for an afternoon latte. So tasty. I’ll have to consider picking up a little more at the tea festival if we go this year.

Evol Ving Ness

What do you mean if we go? Is that even possible?

Sil

Haha never know what might come up

drank The Vanilla Marshmallow. by 52teas
8960 tasting notes

I was worried i wouldn’t enjoy this one based off the review the other day from my Swedish chef ;) However, i opted to add just a tiny bit of sugar when brewing this, as i find that seems to really help a lot of the 52 teas. Now, is this decadent, deep, vanilla tea like my favourite from MF? Nope. but this is more than just marshmallow root. i quite like this one because it’s not the sort of vanilla tea i would usually get. However, i’m sad that i didn’t get to try amythests gold.

drank Gourmet Root Beer by 52teas
8960 tasting notes

jury is out on this one just yet. I like it but there might be too much star anise in here doing weird things for me. I’ll have another cup and figure it out then…but is this classic root beer? hells yes :)

drink drink drink. It’s supposed to snow this weekend…not sure if i believe it. I suspect it’ll be that gross slushy sort of mess that is almost more rain than snow. However…it’s “friday” today for me in the start of basically two months of working 4 day weeks. So yay! I’ve got a 4 day weekend coming up and i’m excited to do things like go find new glasses, drink tea, clean up…get ready for chicago next week heh. Started the morning off with this one and another to have some straight teas before i continue drinking up all the 52 teas heh.

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.
