same from Evol ving ness. This one doesn’t work for me.. somehow the ingredients don’t come together in any sort of harmony for me…and there’s an under lying sweetness that i can’t quite place. Not a bad tea, but nothing i need to have again. Though i’m always up for trying new things :)

Evol Ving Ness

Yeah, haven’t tried this one yet. :)

i do love this chai…not overpowering with clove/cinnamon…nicely balanced with cardamom and the tumeric. noms.

drank Winter by Turmeric Teas

noms. Enjoying these turmeric teas. While i wasn’t getting a lot of cinnamon at the tea festival, in this cup there’s a little more cinnamon that that sample. Still tasty, just something to note.

Evol Ving Ness

Somehow managed to miss this booth as well. Clearly I need the two days to do festival properly.

Had this one earlier today. It was decent but i don’t think i need to reorder this one. There are others from A&D that i prefer.

Teatotaler

According to A&D’s website Red Tailed Hawk is among their teas that have “passed into legend”. They have, fairly recently, also retired Double Knit Blend and Carävan Resurrected.

Sil

i really hope they bring back double knit

Evol Ving Ness

NO! They can’t retire Double Knit Blend before I’ve had a chance to try it!

Also, is Steepster broken? They’re not updating notices.

Sil

hoping double knit will come back…but black sunshine is still a win and there

Teatotaler

Evol Ving Ness – Steepster must be broken. I’m not getting updates either!

drank Vanilla Citrus Herbal by 3 Teas

Had this one the other night. Still enjoying the vanilla and orange combo but sad that i’m getting near the end of this. I don’t have a lot of fruit herbals in my cupbaord so i need to get drinking up some of the samples i have so that i can place a small order when the warmer weather hits!

Evol Ving Ness

Another creamsicle one. Yay!

Evol Ving Ness

A question for you, Sil. You gave me a sample of a French tea called Celebration in a white glossy bag with TeaChai etc printed on the front and Societe du the et L’Orient on the side. Who makes this tea, i.e.. what is the brand?

Sil

had to think for a moment. that’s the o dor https://steepster.com/teas/the-o-dor/11409-celebration

pulled this one out as well. I should try it as a cold brew because this isn’t a lemongrass overpowering things blend. Instead you can actually get the basil notes to come through. Makes for a unique blend versus other stupid lemong grass blends where that’s virtually all you’re tasting.

drank Thé du Loup by THE O DOR

drink drink drinking all the teas. I figure if i miss out on my goals, i should at least try to work on my oldest teas to try and get my cupboard back to being 6-8months old. I’m nearly there – only about 5 teas are older than that but the fact that they exist is enough for me to want to stop hoarding them :) so this one. still delicious and still worth drinking even this old.

VariaTEA

A 6-8 month old cupboard sounds like a dream.

Evol Ving Ness

An aspiration. Sil, you inspirer you.

Sil

i was doing it for a while there….then i brought home 4kg from Paris

Indigobloom

I doubt I’ll ever have that. Maybe a year if I’m lucky

Jillian

The problem with a lot of my older teas is that they’re all favourite teas that are either hard to get (like The O Dor) or the company has since closed down like Butiki. So I know I should be drinking them but I know that once they’re gone they’re probably gone forever. :(

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.
