If it is possible for a tea to be snarky, this one is. A pleasant twang to the green flavour.

An ok tea for an orange blend (which to be fair, I’m not generally a fan of). Pretty light tasting, with way more peach than ginger.

Flavors: Ginger, Orange, Peach

This tea was too weak this morning. I used only one teaspoon in 8 oz. I did love the flavor, and I’m planning to try more later…

So my next cup was delicious and chocolatey. I used 2 teaspoons in 8 oz water for about 5 minutes.
I love it…. It’s double chocolate extra chai layers of goodness!

Flavors: Chocolate, Cinnamon, Clove, Coconut

I wasn’t really sold on this tea the first time I had it – it was good but not great, and nothing really stood out. The next time I made it I sweetened it and all of a sudden it was delicious! :) Very nice and fruity, and the pomegranate balances out the apricot flavour. Delicious!

I really love this Earl Grey. The hint of vanilla and citrus just makes it fantastic, and it can be a nice change from the usual cup of Twinnings. Really nice with vanilla agave and milk!

Pretty good full-bodied green tea. The ginger was strong but not over-powering.

My favourite from the Tea Wolf sampler set so far :D First steep was amazingly delicious – hits of sweet caramel supported by the light vanilla oolong. Re-steeps kept the caramel flavour, while letting the oolong through (second and third steeps of oolong taste the best!)

Overall, delicious. A++, will buy again.

Smelled delicious in the cup, and tasted like a pretty decent chai tea. Second steeping was not as good – the black tea can stand up to re-steeping, however most of the flavouring was lost other than clove.

Very delicious! First steeping, I slightly over-steeped and used a little bit of sugar to counter-act the tannins, but it was still delicious! The bergamot was enhanced by the sweet honeybush, but I didn’t taste much of the blood orange. 2 re-steeps were similarly tasty. Overall, a delicious Earl Grey blend!

This tea was one of the first I tried of Daunt’s teas, and is still one of my favourites! This one is sweet and delicious. I add cream and sugar and it tastes divine! It’s an excellent dessert tea, and very satisfying.

sorry guise. but the only way i’m gonna get any notes in about these teas is if my notes have nothing to do with the teas. so welcome to gab central!

(me and a usual chat co-worker haven’t been in contact for a week or so!)
HER: i’m just trying to process about five billion contracts. it’s nonsense.
ME: when i don’t hear from you i do always think ‘contracts’
HER: they are NONSENSE and I hate them.
ME: if contracts could be personified i would call Captain America and have him knee contracts in the balls.
ME: (umm i may currently be obsessed with the Avenger btw)

then my co-worker across the hallway just came and asked me if i wanted his oatmeal raisin cookies.
i said fuck yeah i want your oatmeal raisin cookies.

Skulleigh

LOL, I read the tea name as “Goat Steeper” and did a double-take. But I have been reading about goats recently for research. I have goats on the brain!

I ♥ NewYorkCiTEA

It’s both good and weird that I’m not the only one who did that. lol

Shmiracles

you guys have goats on the brain! hahah

this is a nice little tea. still teen wolf gimicky, but smelled yummy!

two weekends ago i went to a rave in the woods!
http://instagram.com/p/cC6Z5Roc7J/
we camped, brought in tents and chairs and coolers, and the sun was still up when we got there and the djs were already playing. and as the sun slowly set the party really came alive. the light show was so vibrant against the darkness of the woods. and i danced to a new song that i have played on repeat ever since!

I have yet to try Adagio’s earl grey bravo straight, but so fair I’ve liked it in the blends I’ve had. Here, it’s mixed with blood orange and vanilla honeybush. It definitely had an orange flavor to it, and while I thought that the body of the tea was a bit weak sometimes, it made for a reliable morning cup with no extra sweetness necessary.

hi, my name is shmiracles and i have a fanfic problem. i could say it’s a reading problem. but i also re-watch the movies and read comics.
seriously, it’s interfering with my work. and my life.
but mostly it is interfering with my tea logging! cuz i have been drinking tea so much tea, and i’m not making any notes! i have about 10 teas to make notes on. and i’m about to drink a few more!
it’s piling up.
but i enjoyed all the Teen Wolf teas my sister bought. they weren’t necessarily memorable. and most of them had too much rooibos or honeybush in them to gain my true enthusiasm. but they were tasty enough! i’d never turn a cup down.

Cavocorax

I think I’m getting more and more of a fanfic problem but I am also crazy anal about organizing things and so I spend a lot of time worrying about how to organize all my fic instead of reading it. :| Right now I’m reading it on my kindle, phone and computer, but am TRYING to add all the ones I like into pinboard so I can find them later, and the ones that I absolutely love have to go into Calibre so I can add covers and make proper books of them and put them in a special place on my kindle. It’s complicated.

Shmiracles

omg you are an organizing maniac! and it’s really obvious how important it is to you.
i also make sure every single fic i download is saved in calibre. i also ‘private bookmark’ every single thing i read on AO3 (whether i like it or not) so that i can avoid reading the same thing twice. ones i really like i add notes to also. but that’s basically the extent of my organizing hah

Cavocorax

A maniac indeed! It really slows my fic consumption, but I’m still working out a system. :P At the end of the day I really only need to track the fics I absolutely adore, but it’s still nice to track the ones that I enjoyed and keep them around too.

Your system sounds like it works better than mine. It’s simpler!

And Pinboard is pretty great for helping me track everything, but then I started following random people and now I’m finding all sorts of random fic just from there. Best problems. :) My to-read list is getting big.

OMGsrsly

Cavo, I was doing that when Stanza worked on the iPhone, but now that it’s not being updated all my fics are… messy. :/

it’s sounds like a nice combo. but maybe too much green imbalance to gain my true love.
mango green, pomegranate green, apricot (black)
really you could probably just give me apricot black and call it wild child and i’d be like ‘yes’ and ‘thank you’.

oh noes. i have 8 teas that i logged and have to write reviews for. from this weekend.
got a bit behind.

i saw Iron Man 3 on sunday and as soon as it ended i felt like i could watch it again.
so i went home and watched the first hour of The Avengers. then tried to watch the first 2 Iron Mans.

went dancing saturday night. and drank a lot. and grabbed toooo many butts. i’m sure of it.

Nxtdoor

Oh my, I haven’t grabbed a butt in sooo long. Marriage means I get stuck with one butt forever! :D

Shmiracles

hahah just when i think the list is long enough for me … reason #156 to not get married.
hilarious.

TastyBrew

I don’t know, if you find the right butt… the perfect combination of muscle and bubble, you might want to grab it for years!

TheTeaFairy

This comment thread is so absurd and hilarious, I must jump in! TastyBrew is right, I found the perfect butt and I’ve been grabbing it for years, so being stuck with one butt(Nxtdoor, you should get paid for these words!) is proven to be fun!!

Shmiracles

to each his own butt!!!

TheTeaFairy

or in your case «buttS» Shmiracles, haha!

Sil

nothing wrong with grabbing random butts after your married as long as that’s all you do! grin

Shelley_Lorraine

ok everyone, way TMI! keep your weirdness to yourselves. LOL.

Cavocorax

This is the perfect tea for this thread!

Josie Jade

Haha, great thread! Hope your run went well, Shmiracles, if the weather cleared up. Well, and in between all of the butt grabbing! :)

Shmiracles

hey Josie! thanks for asking!! but i mega stubbed my toe friday night, so between that and the rain i just didn’t do the race at all. (which was good cuz it poured rain during the race time too)
(here’s a pic of my toe: warning for blood content – http://instagram.com/p/aSHXq1oc0b/ )
but i have a marathon next weekend, so i still have plenty of running to look forward to :)

Nxtdoor

5 years from now someone (new people) will read this and they’ll be like.. “What freaks!” Loosen up, yo. It’s just tea.

Shelley_Lorraine

haha. I’m already thinking as much about you guys. It’s all Shmiracles, she’s the source! It gets pretty boring around here when she isn’t logging teas (btw Shmiracles, I missed the part where you actually said something about the tea here. :p )

Starfevre

I did not like the last bits of IM3.

Shmiracles

Hahah Shelley! i don’t need to actually “review” a tea called TEAse now do i?
i mean, it’s created off of a show about teenage werewolves and lizard mutators and grossly-romanic romeo & juliet type scenarios. not to mention basically any reason to get the alpha werewolf to take his shirt off.
this tea wasn’t really created for is nuanced personality i don’t think.
so, ya, this tea is basically a shirtless hunk. and it’s getting it’s butt grabbed on my dance floor.

Shelley_Lorraine

Well gee, shouldn’t the tea at least get a cameo in its own note? :p

mrs.stenhouse12

Lolol this review / all the comments made me giggle haha. Thanks for making my day :)

OMGsrsly

OMG it’s a TEEN WOLF tea?! Why does shipping to Canada cost so much! I can think of so many people who I need to get this for…

Cavocorax

OMGsrsly – if you want to do an Adagio order some time, I AM ALL FOR IT. Even if you have to ship it to me in Toronto, I’ll take the $10 shipping over $35. (Cuz I want me some Tardis)

i personally think this tea is fairly dull for such a bold and jittery character. but it’s a drinkable tea.

also,
there are may be something like 4 boxes of tea i should be putting together and mailing out but all i keep doing is reading in my room and ignoring all my responsibilities. and tea sample mailings is one of those responsibilities i’m ignoring evidently.
sigh.

Starfevre

fanfiction consumes all.

Shmiracles

Star, i have thought of this small statement you made at least 20 times since yesterday. le sigh.

This is a really nice light blend, and it’s not killing you with flavors. There’s a nice touch of spice from the ginger, but it doesn’t hit you the same way cinnamon does.There’s definitely a peach taste, and an earthy feel from the white tea and oolong. Very good blend overall!

i have had a twitch in my right eye for almost 24 hrs now.

this vanilla caramel chocolate tea is super easy to drink. like it was gone within minutes of cooling.

Lala

My left eye twitches if I don’t get enough sleep.

Shmiracles

I’m so sad to be finishing this bag. Artichoke and rhubarb sounded like an unlikely combination, but it works so beautifully in this tea. There’s hibiscus in there too, which may be a dealbreaker for some, but I like it. The mild vegetable flavor of the artichoke is tempered by the rhubarb, making this tea smooth and really, really easy to drink.

This was a tough one! It smells amazingly peachy in the bag, but it took me a long time to figure out how to brew this, since the ginger comes out a ton when steeped sometimes.

I’d really advise trusting the blender’s recommendation on this one: no more than 2 minutes, tops. Tea brews up to a reddish brown color, tastes like fruity ginger. I’m not sure if I’d order this again, but once you manage to pin down how you like this to taste, it’s smooth and pleasant.
