drank Blueberry Coconut by 52teas

I’ve had this a few times and I think it’s funny that Kittenna sees this one as being more blueberry and less coconut while I have the opposite issue. For me this is more coconut blueberry tea. On the upside I like both those flavourings from 52 teas so I’m not super worried about it. I’ll try and tweak my brewing and see what happens as I drink through the rest of this :)

drank Banana Grapefruit by DAVIDsTEA

Sample from variatea. :) I’m not a fan of David’s tea. I find them too expensive, not all that exciting and often they have too much damn stevia in their blends or other artificial sweetener. Ugh. But I DOlike trying new teas and I do like banana and grapefruit.

This one had good banana flavour but the grapefruit was sort of meh. That’s about all I remember from when I had it lol. I’ll have to try it again and see where I land again.

drank Grapefruit Green Tea by 52teas
10193 tasting notes

Sample from variatea. Not sure how old it was but I found that it was a super strong scent that didn’t translate in to the brew. For whatever reason the taste was really weak. I’m not sad because while I do like a good grapefruit tea, I don’t love green teas.

VariaTEA

This was actually one of my newer blends.

Sil

Weird. :)

52Teas

This one came out in July 2018.

Sil

yeah that’s new for variatea lol

VariaTEA

Unfortunately, that is the state of my cupboard…anything from 2018 or later is “new”

Also finished this one the other day. Almost a full package of this courtesy of variatea and I still can’t say why I like it so much haha. Either way I love being able to get these unique teas from 52 teas. I really miss companies that are doing original things but I’m glad Anne took this company on and made it so much better.

drank Sweet Pear Punch by Tealish

Finished this one a few days ago. Gotta keep drinking tea in the morning because it’s cold! We figure out the furnace today and then we can finally have heat whenever they can install it. This tea is an odd one….I enjoy it but it’s never anything I need to keep around until I decide I want it again haha. Sad to be down a herbal though.

drank Vanilla Chai by White House Premium Teas
10193 tasting notes

Sample from variatea….since the furnace is out and my kid appears to want to sleep for 20 hours a day, I have time to drink tea. So I thought I’d try to get through a couple samples. This one isn’t much to write home about. Boring base, some chai like spices but the vanilla appears to be on vacation. Lol. Glad to try it as it’s someting I would totally want to try…but that’s about it.

Sometimes utility outages are a blessing in disguise. A random non-weather-related lapse in electricity resulted in more together time with my son than I’ve had in months.

Sil

Agreed! Glad you got that opportunity. :)

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.
