Another one from Dexter this one isn’t bad. I wish it was a littler richer – i find that mate tends to thin things out for me. I’m never a huge fan of mate. I do like the coffee flavour that this one has, but i’ve had other coffee/teas that i prefer. Really happy to try this one.

Hey Sil,
I’ve been trying to find anyone who might have some Majesteas they are willing to swap. Especially the Highland one, but I’ll take whatever. Any chance you have some you’re willing to part with? Thanks!

Debi

Sorry, I just noticed you don’t have any of the Majesteas. My bad. I was going by some of the comments on their tea, so maybe it was from a while ago. Sorry!

Sil

@ debi – i didn’t manage to get over there before they closed :( You could try looking their teas up on steepster and seeing who has them in their cupboard.

Debi

Yes, I also missed stopping by the store before they closed. :(
I just logged on now to look it up in peoples cupboards. :)

Thanks for sending this one my way for me to try Dexter The dry tea is incredibly smokey, but that translates in to a brew that is not quite AS smokey as the dry suggests. When this is first made, all i can taste is the smoke. Good for me that i enjoy the occasional smokey cup. As it cools though, the cherry starts to peek through and it becomes a cup with much more going on. Going to need to try this one again to decide where i stand on it :)

I didn’t find this one as smokey as you are suggesting. Odd for sure, changes as it cools – definitely. I’ve had it a few times and am still on the fence. I think it’s better with less leaf, cooler water and longer steeps – but that’s just me. :)

Sil

yeah i’ve got more to play with. Maybe i was just having a smoke sensitive day haha

drank Ginger Root Tea by Tea Trunk

Tea from yesterday! thanks for sharing this one VariaTEA. I love me some ginger. As always i’d prefer MORE ginger in this one but suspect that for most, this is balanced fairly well. It was a really enjoyable cup last night.

drank Yunnan Royal Gold by Imperial Tea Court

I prefer this one than the golden ring from imperial tea court. This one has a much smoother body and less astringency. It’s got that malt that i love while still being a rich tea. Thanks for sharing these with me dexter!

I did a comparison today with the two teas dexter sent me that were similar in nature. Turns out i like this one a little less. Again, not a bad tea but in the grand scheme of how many teas there are in the world to drink, this one isn’t a MUST HAVE. it’s a good cup, malty, a little astringency and overall good. Just not the best :)

drank Belgian Chocolate by TeaTaxi

thanks for sharing with me VariaTEA so this is pretty muted down…and for whatever reason, i’m getting a MINT flavour in this..which is just a little weird. this isn’t bad, but it’s pretty average.

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.
