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.

drank Red, White and Blue by 52teas

Smaple from kittenna I think my only “complaint” on this one is that i want the fruity flavour to pop a little more. I quite like the fruit + coconut in this, almost refreshing even as a black tea. The base is nice and blends well with the flavours..i just wish the fruit would come out a little more as the coconut makes it sort of fuzzy and creamy haha.

Thanks kittenna!

tea from Christina Need to have this one again. I was really looking forward to this one, since i consider this liberteas magic caramel tea. I sadly had this yesterday and can barely tell you what i had for lunch today. I enjoyed it? but i don’t think it lived up to my expectations. Thankfully though, i’ve got more to play with! yaaay! thanks christina!

drank Tiramisu by CitizenTea
8570 tasting notes

sample from cavocorax that i drank and screwed up yesterday. I meant to brew a single cup, but got distracted and brewed up my usual mug which is two normal cups. Sooo the flavour here was totally diluted :( I’ll have to pick this up at a later date to try again. Sorry for messing up the tea you shared cavo!

VariaTEA

I have some of this, I think. I can spare some so you can try it again.

Cavocorax

It’s ok. I vaguely remember the cup I had and it didn’t blow my mind but it wss ok? So this isn’t a Laoshan Black or anything like that. :P

drank Chocolate Hazelnut by CitizenTea
8570 tasting notes

Sample from cavocorax this one wasn’t bad. it’s not a knock your socks off omg yes lease! sort of tea, but again, given that this is a canadian company, availability may win out next time i need to order. this is more milk chocolate than dark and the hazelnut is really in the background here. I wish it was a little more nutty and more like dark chocolate, but again, not half bad.

Cavocorax

It really reminds me of the Harney & Sons equivalent? Florence? I liked it but wasn’t wowed but… who knows, I might get another sample later on.

Sil

been a long time since i had H&S heh but i think so?

Dexter

Whimper…. I miss Florence….

Sil

dex – i can always order some via my tea mule of you’re desperate!

Dexter

Thanks Sil – I guess I’m not THAT desperate – I have lots of Passage left, will make do with what I have.

Sil

let me know dex :)

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.
