drank Hot Buttered Spiced Rum by 52teas
9037 tasting notes

Another from crowkettle to finish off my green afternoon. This one is right up my alley even if it is a green tea :) the green base makes it sort of lighter and refreshing and just works well with the spices that are going on here. Not sure if i’m feeling the “buttered” aspet of the tea but i’m going to enjoy drinking up the rest of the sample :)

drank Lime Jello Salad Green Tea by 52teas
9037 tasting notes

another cup this afternoon. I’ve had this one before so i knew what to expect. Mostly it was the same lime jello salad that i’ve enjoyed in the past, if a little more subdued in the flavour department. I enjoy this one – thanks for sharing it with me crowkettle

Another sample from Crowkettle always nice to visit greens – never my first choice but in small, drinkable quantities i can get behind them. I’m no dragonwell expert but this was nice. light, refreshing, juicy and slightly sweet. Thanks crowkettle!

drank Lemon Lavender Creamsicle by 52teas
9037 tasting notes

first tasting note on this one – that’s unfortunate haha This is another sample from crowkettle First off, when someone says creamsicle my first thought is orange creamsicle. So drinking this i needed to keep reaminding myself that it was leamon/lavender NOT orange. Thankfully, this isn’t a bouquet of lavender – which is one of those scents that i am just not a fan of. That being said, this is a relatively subdued blend. It’s not super lemoney, lavender like…more of a light lemon cream with something going on in the background that i wouldn’t necessarily call out as being lavender. decent enough blend, but not my favourite.

The name alone is intoxicating. I am interested in hearing what others have to say about this. ok, maybe not, because I want some and that will only frustrate me.

CrowKettle

I don’t have a lot but I can send you some if you want :P

Evol Ving Ness

Thanks, CrowKettle, for your kind offer. If you don’t have a lot, I don’t want you to lose out on something you like and are still investigating.

I’d be happy to do a swap of other stuff sometime if you are interested though. No pressure, of course.

CrowKettle

I don’t worry about all that! I’m not really swapping right now because of a green tea overload, but if you PM with some teas you’re interested I’ll try and accommodate :)

Evol Ving Ness

Thanks, CrowKettle. So far, all the swaps I’ve participated in have just been random. Each person seems to have their own approach. Not to worry, one day.

drank Toasted Marshmallow by 52teas
9037 tasting notes

Sample from Crowkettle who managed to up my cupboard to 80 haha. I really wanted to love this one, but i think i prefer the gemaicha bases to the hojicha. I imagine the hojicha could make it more roasty but i’m just getting a slight marshmallow flavour. I’ve got a little more to try so i’l see if i can make it work a little better next time.

CrowKettle

I’m with you on the Houjicha

I had this one the other day – still enjoying this but i really wish there was more banana flavour. the lapsang makes for an interesting combination but more banana would be delicious :)

VariaTEA

lol you always want more banana

another from this afternoon – glad i got a bit of tea drinking in as well as a few short exercise sessions since the rain is seriously hampering my ability to run. I am not happy about it. still enjoying this tea – it seems to work well with a little bit of the orange peel in the brew :)

drank Summer by Turmeric Teas
9037 tasting notes

too much mint! glad i got this one for free as i’m not a fan. there’s just never a time when i want a straight up mint tea. While there’s turmeric and peppercorns in here, it’s largely mint, with a little of the edge taken off. A decent enough blend, but not one i need.

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.
