mmmm sample from evol ving ness yep. happy to try this one finally, even if i can’t currently purchase it lol. This one feels more chocolatey than the version from verdant and more “oolongy” It is also missing the roastyness from the rice that i always really enjoyed. I think this is a tasty blend, but it’s not quite the verdant blend that i want it to be. However, i would totally pick this up on it’s own merits for a different sort of taste experience :)

Final count: 100 (since even if i have more tea tonight, not time to log until tomorrow)

Evol Ving Ness

And NO berries! :)

Fjellrev

BAM 100!

Sil

drank Marshmallow Assam by 52teas
8857 tasting notes

Sample from Evol Ving Ness so the last time i had this one, i wasn’t all that impressed…something about it just didn’t rock my socks. I’m not sure if Evol’s sample was fresher or had a different sort of balance to the sample but this was a great cup of tea today! just the right balance of marshmallow and black tea to create just what i wanted in the afternoon :) thanks evol!

The secret is to shake it shake it shake it. :)

drank Sweet Berries Bouquet by Tealyra
8857 tasting notes

Sample from Evol Ving Ness more berries! haha i think this one would be a decent cup of tea cold brewed (or maybe just brewed and then cooled…) with some sweetner. As a warm cup of tea, there’s a floral note to this that doesn’t jive with me. You can taste the base through the flavouring, which i like..but that berry + floral note is not for me. thanks for the sample evol!

Evol Ving Ness

Yeah, you might not be getting any more berry tea cravings for a while after you reach the end of my samples.

Sil

heh with this one it was just the floral note.

drank Amontillado Chai by A Quarter to Tea
8857 tasting notes

Sample from Evol Ving Ness this one is interesting to me. I enjoyed it but i’m not sure i could drink this in copious amounts. I really like the smoothness of this one and the pop of cherry like flavour in the background. the other spices don’t overpower either which is nice… but i think utimately the cherry and cinnamon? give it a slightly weird taste that i couldn’t drink a lot of. lol 1 cup = good. many cups = can’t do it haha

drank Berry Picking Delight by Tealux

Sample from Evol Ving ness

so tired…working late. long story short – this was a nice one. refreshing berry tea…bold flavour. I’d pick this one up again if i needed a berry/fruit herbal!

Final Count: 105 (yes i’m trying to get one in a day!)

Evol Ving Ness

Happy to hear that you enjoyed this one.

I seem to have gone on a berry trend in this particular swap packet. Somehow, I don’t think I realized that as I was organizing and packaging.

Sil

nothing wrong with that! :)

Evol Ving Ness

Oh good! I seem to be on a berry and/or smoky and/or milky oolong and/or mango thing these days.

Fjellrev

Hope you’ll have some time to relax soon, Sil!

Sil

puppy helps with that every night fjellrev – running around in the field next door :)

drank Strawberry Rhubarb Pie by Tealyra
8857 tasting notes

Tried this one from Evol Ving Ness today and while it was a tasty cup, the flavours seemed a little muted. David’s tea – strawberry rhubarb parfait is more up my alley as i expect POP from strawberry rhubarb versus…oh hey..hi there… :) Still enjoyable but i want moar taste!

Final Count: 106

Nattie

I look to you as the authority on strawberry rhubarb pie flavoured teas

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.
