i love black oolongs. i’ve known this for a long time. i like green oolongs too. basically i like oolongs.
too bad i oversteeped it when a professor came in to talk to me about his running.
but i saved it’s yummy happy face of tea by adding more hot water.
all is right with the world.

drank Creme Earl Grey by Element Tea
773 tasting notes

my first Traveling Tea Box Tea!
sorry swappers box, you’re going on the back burner for a little while.
behold!!! http://instagram.com/p/a-AXluoc7_/

i only took one little teaspoon of this tea so that there would be some for another sipper. i really think i obsessed too much over how much to grab of what teas. i basically didn’t feel comfortable with finishing a single tea off entirely. so i just took small little scoops of the less abundant teas like a weenie. it’s my first traveling box experience. i’ll make more gutsy choices next time i’m sure. hah

i don’t think this tea would get bitter even at 5 min. it’s a good strength for my taste. good leaves i think. though i would like it to be a bit more cream-creamy. on my second-ish steep i did what CHAroma did and added cream and agave.

i’m gonna reach 400 tasting notes before i get through these TTB samples. that means 400 teas tasted. now that’s hawt.

CHAroma

I’m about to hit 400 too!! :D And that photo is insane. “Behold” was the perfect word to say! Just look at all that tea!!!

Shmiracles

ya! maybe i’ll hit 400 this weekend. if not this weekend then definitely monday. and i only log each tea once so that 400 teas i’ve tasted to date! i have a fun life!

you should do it too.

Skulleigh

I should! I even have an unopened bottle of champagne sitting in the fridge! I’ll have to see what tisanes I have that might work.

Shmiracles

i did it with Orange Blossom and this Strawberry Kiwi. both were nice!

Skulleigh

Oh, I just remembered I have a blood orange sample – I bet that would work. I’ll have to check what others I have when I get home.

drank Vanilla by Adagio Teas

i had a tea party this weekend
http://instagram.com/p/a6fNyDoc16/
we drank a lot of teas
and ate a lot of cheese type stuff
and we talked for HOURZ! caffeine has that effect on people i guess.

if anyone on here uses MyFitnessPal feel free to add me.

i didn’t have any more of this left and then i got a small sample from CHAroma, so i tasted it again today.
not a very exciting vanilla black.
i am addicted to the Della Cafe Vanilla though. like in a passive way where i buy it and drink it all and don’t even get excited about drinking it, i just realize how quickly it disappears. which is quicker than any other tea i have. so basically it’s not a fair fight. not at all. but i’m still thankful to get a taste!!

TheTeaFairy

Great pic! Now I’m hungry…

Cavocorax

Sounds like a lot of fun!

I created a MFP account the other month but fell off the wagon. Ugh. But I’ll find you when I log on next time!

drank Enchanted Forest by Yumchaa
773 tasting notes

so ya, i drank this 5 days ago, and still haven’t made a note.
i drank it the day after too. but couldn’t figure it out. and i don’t trust my judgement because green teas have been weird for me lately.
so i’m gonna save the bit i got from Scheherazade and gleefully try it again when i get my fresh and so clean green tastebuds back. yup.

dry sweetness and sing songy dark tones.
easy to drink down down down to my belly.
and now it’s all gone.
Sil gave it to me!
thank you Sil!

it’s monday and two new refrigerators just arrived at out house.
no one told me it was refrigerator monday. i missed the memo.

today started with my Sherlock Lapsang and taking pictures as i walked across the bridge to work and sent the pictures to random friends and then proceeded to read a short story about Tony Stark being all flirty and lovely in college while simultaneously listening to my headphones and turning them up louder and louder each song because everything sounded SO GOOD! (and yes i walk and read at the same time WITH my headphones on. i’m an accident waiting to happen i know.) (but Tony Stark would approve.)
then a later cup was Della Terra Vanilla with animal crackers dipped in it. aka Lunch!
now i am on to these jasmine pearls. and the liquor is beautiful and oceanic and i can see to the flower painted into the bottom of my cup. and has anyone ever taken a bath with jasmine pearls before? because if my insanely good mood continues then i wouldn’t put it past me. that’s all i’m sayin.

thank you for this sample KallieBoo!
i am a dried fruit fanatic i will admit. like prunes and mangoes and currants and dates. all of it.
not so much a fan of lavender to be honest, but it works nicely in this blend. much better than it smells dry to my nose. once brewed it adds a whimsical or slight poetic quality to the scent but it isn’t a big deal in the flavor itself. it makes it breezy!
very fun and interesting cup. i drank my first brewed 12oz very fast. i even surprised myself!

i just felt like saying good bye to this cute tea. it has a bold yet feminine way about it that i really like. smooches little tea!

moraiwe

That combinations sounds both weird and amazing!
