SIPDOWN! had this tasty little treat to finish off with dinner. Still not a fan of david’s tea but this one is alright by me. Nice to finally get through my 12 days of christmas teas…well except for the matcha from azzrian…can’t bring myself to open it yet hahaha

drank Swiss Mountain by Della Terra Teas

SIPDOWN! god i love a clean tea cupboard. All sort of productive tea drinking going to be happening…oh yes! Downgrading this because as i’ve come to learn, della terra chocolate and i rarely get along. this has got some blechy chocolate taste going on with the mint that is just not my happy place.

Fjellrev

In your opinion, which companies whip up a great chocolate flavour?

Sil

I’ll have to think about that one. It’s a hard flavour to capture without tasting overly artificial.

drank Paul & Virginie by Dammann Freres

mmm this is a fruity, sweet tea that is quite nicely blended. I’m a littl sad that i accidentally let this cool off a whole bunch before getting a chance to really enjoy this hot. Thankfully i have a bunch more to play with though to be able to provide a much better review in the future. over all though, pleasantly satisfied!

Had some of this today while running a few tea related errands :) I like that the strawberry doesn’t overpower the black tea base, though i wish id had a bit of sweetner to add to it just to see how that changes the blend. next time maybe! Overall i will enjoy drinking this one :)

Kittenna

Such tea drinking progress! My whole body is apparently quite unhappy with me right now; tea doesn’t even seem appealing. Or maybe a non-flavoured one would do…

Sil

that’s nothing…also went through my cupboard to make sure that my steepster cupboard was up t date…after a few additions and deletions to get my inventory straight… i am down to 168! woot woot! (plus 5 verdant reserve and some china tea)

Terri HarpLady

I need to update my cupboard, I don’t think it reflects what I really have, at least not completely.

Sil

heh i try to keep mine up to date so that i know when i’m pushing that “holy crap stop buying tea” barrier…

drank Berry Good (Organic) by DAVIDsTEA
11815 tasting notes

Borrowed a sample of this from my pregnant friend whose tea i’m babysitting lol. I’m not feeling the pu-erh in this blend but it is a tasty berry blend. It’s sweet and tart at the same time. I wouldn’t make this out to be a specific type of berry – i’m not feeling the same level of “strawberry” that others are. While this is a tasty blend, it loses a few points for being not so much pu-erh. I feel like you could make this with nearly any other base and you’d get the same sort of taste happening.

Stephanie

Their pu-erh blends do seem to hide the pu-erh! Heh

drank Chai Apricot by Tea Desire
11815 tasting notes

SIPDOWN!

this is a smelly tea that gives me a headache lol so it’s been lockewd away in a tupperware container since kittenna was kind enough to let me steal a sample haha.

This is…..interesting lol I actually wish the smell wasn’t so intense because i think? it’s a blend i’d really enjoy drinking. it’s just hard to tell since the smell is telling my taste buds conflicting things.

This is a sweet blend with just a hint of chai spicey flavour at the end of the cup. I would drink this again but for the smell of the tea that I just can’t get past. It’s quite delicious.

Kittenna

If you kind of like this one, I think you will be happy with your Mango Chai :)

Sil

haha ok good to know :)

Apparently i’ve never bother to log this. I’m over this tea. Actually for the most part i’m over the tea emporium as i always find that there’s a strange taste in most of their blends. Take the roooibod for example. I actually enjoy rooibos, but theirs? it’s got this weird taste that overpowers nearly every other flavour that’s going on in the cup. Soooo thanks, but no thanks. this is like drinking a cup of rooibos.

drank Chance Combinations by Custom
11815 tasting notes

Sipdown! Drinking a random tea that i’m too lazy to log since it’s a sipdown. Victorian Afternoon Tea from Kittenna This is a bit astringent for me but it’s overall not a bad little tea. Certainly glad i got the chance to try it :)

Edit: Also forgot the rating on this is linked to all my entries haha this would be about a 73 :)

Kittenna

I’ll make an entry for this at some point. I still haven’t tried this one. In fact, I’m not entirely certain where I put it.

drank Perfectly Pear by Sloane Tea Company
11815 tasting notes

oh man. So i cold brewed this one just for kicks. I am digging the cold brew quite a bit! Unsweetned there was a bit of pear hanging out in the background, and then with a little bit of sugar added to this, there’s more going on. Another white tea, so not my go to tea, but this isn’t half bad. It’s still not my perfect pear tea but it’s a refreshing tea nonethless that has a really nice base that it “pears” well with haha.

Preparation
Iced 8 min or more

drank White Bubbly Berry by Kally Tea
11815 tasting notes

The tastebuds they are a changing! I’m less of a fan of this one when I first had it. Now, part of that may be the cold brew that i decided to try with this one but i’m just not loving it as much anymore. I’ll try and have a cup of it hot later but i’m just not feeling it. That’s likely because of the whole white tea thing i suspect since it’s just kind of a wimpy tea lol

Terri HarpLady

Thank you! When white teas first came on the market I was excited. I bought some & it basically tasted like…water? I’ve had more flavorful white teas since, & will drink some on occasion, but black tea is my boyfriend, if you know what I mean!

Sil

i am with you on that one Terri!

Tealizzy

I’m with you both!

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 as well!

Most of that is on hold these days though, including tea drinking like I used to as I have a new little one who eats up all my spare time.
