My mom got me another bag of this, and idk if it’s just still too fresh, or they used too much lavender… but it’s a lot.

A. Lot.

And this is coming from someone who LIKES lavender in their tea.

Anyways. I had it with cream. It was nice. Just. A lot.

Yeah I still have some.

The vanilla needs a rinse these days but other than that it’s still tasty.

No regrets.

Courtney

Yay! :)

OMGsrsly

Perfect accompaniment to a meeting!

drank Earl Grey Decaf by Twinings

I got a box of this a while back because I finished my vanilla Comoro and, uhh, with the borders closed I can’t exactly visit my friend in Chicago and restock my teas…

It’s ok. I feel bad saying that as I used to drink this tea all the time. It’s not a strong tea, and the bergamot is just there. Idk. Am I just having trouble with earl grey teas these days? I’ve been slowly looking for a new one but I haven’t settled on anything yet.

drank Far Afield by August Uncommon Tea

I am seriously thinking about buying more of this tea.

But first, I need fewer herbaly bits and bobs.

drank La Boreale by Camellia Sinensis

Lunchtime tea. I had 2 coffees already today, so it’s time to think about drinking things without caffeine. I haven’t had this one in ages, and it’s definitely past its prime, but it’s still delicious. I would consider reordering if I didn’t have so many other teas…

Sil

lol drink moar!

OMGsrsly

Sloshing is uncomfortable! Also, I have so much puerh and it so rarely agrees with my guts. :( I’m trying, but I have a lot and uhh, it’s gonna take a while to get through it all.

Just another herbal thing I’m trying to drink up. Even though turmeric tastes strongly of dirt to me, I do like this one with the vanilla and cinnamon.

I usually drink it as a latte with a touch of honey, and tonight is no exception. Just need to finish it before I ensconce myself in bed, because my duvet and sheets are all white… very aesthetic, but not very practical.

OMGsrsly

Is it weird that there is good dirt tea and bad dirt tea? I still remember all those black fancy teas with “chocolate” notes that tasted like bad dirt to me,

My other review of this is under one of the Yunnan sourcing entries.

It’s been a while since I had a tea quite like this. I’ve been drinking a lot of black teas and herbal teas, trying to get through my stash. But uhh, I have a LOT of puerh I need to drink.

This one, uhh, tastes wet. Yeah I know, tea is wet. But it gives the impression of leaf mulch. The damp understory of a forest. That kind of wet.

But it has body. A little tannin. Some sweetness.

Not what I’m used to drinking these days, but a nice change.

Sil

lol “wet”

OMGsrsly

yes. I will stand by the impression because the weather is decidedly POURING and so everything is wet.

Ahh yes. Thank goodness I had a previous note on this one. Something shared with Dexter. (I have SO MUCH puerh shared with Dexter, it’s almost frightening).

This is really nice. Smooth. Spicy. Easy to drink. Easy to steep. Honestly if this were looser it’d be a great one for my parents. They don’t really do cakes, tho.

I’m really glad I don’t get rid of more teaware. Will I continue to use it? Who knows. But I’m enjoying it all today.

Yep, I found a tea I can finish! I love the sweet resinous taste of the pine needles. Definitely need to ID some trees and can some spruce tip syrup or something in the spring.

derk

Oh my gosh. The pine needles in this tea were harvested from a place I once called home. Haha! I feel like Brenden is part of the same constellation I inhabit. It wouldn’t surprise me if we’ve crossed paths at some point.

I’ve always wanted to try spruce tip syrup. My friend in Ontario makes it every year.

OMGsrsly

OH yeah, one of my friends up north made spruce tip syrup and said it’s really good. We have some spruce in the local park so I need to figure out how to ID them (I’m so bad with evergreens) so I can harvest. I noticed trees and bushes are starting to bud up already…

Hello hello.

I went through my teas today, organized things, bagged teas that I like to drink but don’t want to clean a strainer for, etc.

And I found a tin of samples. Heh.

This one is from Sil. I do like it. It’s sweet. A bit sharp as raw puerh can be. I don’t have anything excellent to say about it. Just. It’s nice. I appreciate drinking it today. Thanks!
