drank Murmur by Handmade Tea

Sample from VariaTEA. This was a whole lot of subdued strawberry. I didn’t get much cacao. Not sure how old this one is but i feel like given the other reviews here, that it should be way more intense :)

VariaTEA

It’s from February I believe so not old at all.

drank Partridgeberry in a Pear Tea by 52teas

sample from variatea. not a fan. There IS a pear flavour here but it comes across to me as being slightly artifical and there’s something else there that isn’t working for me…not sure if it’s the sencha base or what, but this is not the pear tea for me. oh well. At least i know now :)

VariaTEA

I actually really liked this one. Gotta love how people’s tastes differ. I’m sad this isn’t a pear tea for you.

Sil

that’s why tea sharing is so much fun :)

Kittenna

I wasn’t thrilled by this one either, unfortunately. Might have been the green base that didn’t work for me.

drank Charlotte aux Fruits by Dammann Freres

Another sample from VariaTEA to be honest i don’t really care for the french “red fruits” this one is along that vein. Is it a good solid cup of tea with really nice flavouring….yes. but it’s just not my favourite :) thanks V!

Finished this one off today for a break from caffeine. I’d pick this one up again if i needed to bump up my order – it’s a decent fruit herbal.

Meant to try this as a latte but forgot. Either way, still an enjoyable cup of tea :)

VariaTEA

I can share more to try as a latte.

Sample from VariaTEA sadly i get almost nothing out of this one – tastes like water..maybe denser water. meh. ca’t win them all!

VariaTEA

Hahaha sorry about that. Though I like the description of denser water since there are definitely teas I have tried that could be described that way.

Sil

don’t be sorry. it wasn’t bad it was jus like water.

Figure sine today is going to be a little bit of a lazy saturday – husband is away all day racing, so it’s just me and the dog on a rainy toronto day, that i should have a little puerh today. I’ve been trying to get back in to exercise, so after a run and a bike ride the past couple of days it feels like to have a day to not do much of anything. Maybe some tv….tea..chili making and lemon cheesecake muffin making…but overall just playing with the dog and relaxing.

So fa this one is sort of middle of the road for me. it’s got a good smoothness to it and there’s a little creaminess coming through. it’ll be interesting to see if this has any complexity to it in later steeps.

(thanks for sending this my way omgsrsly!)

mrmopar

What kind of racing does he do? We hit the dragstrip from time to time.

Sil

Heh he races bikes – cycling :)

mrmopar

Got ya.

MrQuackers

Sigh.. I have a cold, so no racing for me.

drank Liu Bao 1980 by Camelia Sinensis

I’ve tried this a couple times now and it just doesn’t work for me whether it’s gonfu or western. To me, THIS is a “dirt” tea. It smells funny and tastes like musty dirt. Since i have zero desire to drink teas i don’t love, this will go in to my swap box for others to try should they desire.

drank Mayan Hot Cocoa by The NecessiTeas

This was another one that i finished off today. Too sweet for my tastes in the long run i think. Nice hot chocolate like, but too sweet. I suspect this would be good as a latte to help cut the sugar. :)

Final Count: 78

VariaTEA

I think I’ve only had it as a latte. The sugar in this is a bit much but when you get it right, it could be nice. Wish it had more of a kick though.

Sil

yeah spiceier would be amazin

Finished this one off with Dinner – lovely creamcheese like tea but not the best that i’ve had (i miss butiki) but it was good. Just wish it had a little more strawberry!

VariaTEA

I think my go to cream cheese tea right now is on wisconsin

Sil

mmm wisconsin

VariaTEA

Haha, I keep checking the AQTT website to make sure its there. I am sure I will break and place an order soon enough.

Sil

keep me posted!

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.
