Sooo uh pretty sure this was indigobloom again but if not, i apologise. This smells a lot like lime…or in the case of my other half – cloves? haha Theres a taste here there that i can’t identify…mostly this tea leaves me full of questions. Why does is taste like this? Does all mate taste like this? lol in all seriousness, leaving a raiting off this one because i’m just not sure what to make of it. I don’t hate it, but i don’t love it. :)

Kittenna

Not a fan of this one. I think this is from Indigobloom, but it may be via me in the first place :P

Indigobloom

me neither. Kittenna I think you may be right!

drank Birthday Cake by DAVIDsTEA

So fundamentally…there is nothing wrong with this tea. But holy crap let’s talk about how sweet it is. My other half had half a sip and said basically ‘so that’s what cake in a blender would taste like." I was able to get through maybe 6 sips before the sugar overload killed me. I’m grateful to indigobloom for the sample to try, though i’m happy to cross this one off my list. If you like vanilla and buttercream…this is a great tea for you! Just not, for me :)

Autistic Goblin

Yeah but sometimes you need the sweet overload, although I’m never buying it again because there are other teas that are better :D

Sil

pretty sure i never need THAT much sweet over load lol

Autistic Goblin

LOL, never say never :D

Indigobloom

was that me? I had no idea I still had that around LOL

Sil

Lol yeah that was the “here just take these! They need to be gone!”

Kittenna

Hahaha, drank my own of this tonight and looooooooved it!

Indigobloom

ah that makes sense now! Kittenna, if I ever end up inheriting more, it goes to you!!

drank Black Currant Bai Mu Dan by 52teas
13762 tasting notes

Thanks to Kittena for a sample of this one. Funnily enough this reminds me more of grapes than black currant but it’s still a tasty tea. I likely had my water too hot as well, so not going to blame the tea for that one. I’d probably be willing to give this one another shot when i’m not at work distracted by coworkers while brewing my tea.

drank Masala Chai by Bridgehead
13762 tasting notes

Went for this one this morning largely because of indecision. I’m trying to get through any tea that i have that’s in smaller quantities to make room for the few teas that are coming and so that I feel less like i have a monster cupboard on my hands. I needed something with a bit of flavour but wasn’t up for being smacked around too much either. Though as it turns out, i might have needed a bit more smacking around as i not only forgot my buspass at home and had to go all the way back, but then managed to have someone spill coffee on me after going back to the stop…so yes…i went all the way back home. Let me tell you how much fun that is when you’re carrying 5098234098 things. oh well…i vow to have a great rest of the day! :)

drank Raspberry Truffle by Butiki Teas
13762 tasting notes

This was a great start to my morning. I’d have gone for something on the stronger side, but when I opened the cupbaord, this is the tea that called out to me. Last night my other half managed to wake me up 3 times with his snoring, something that rarely happens. It was so bad that i ended up sleeping in the other room after the 3rd time, which got me to sleep but not enough. So i’m tired today…so very tired. And busy…and i have to go to the gym tonight because i promised myself i’d stick with it even though i’m not currently seeing a personal trainer…and it’s the last thing i want to do!!! All i want to do is run home to my comfy bed…full of warm and covers and yes please. but instead i’m at work…drinking this tea, and that’s nearly as good.

Indigobloom

aha stick with it! not easy I know…

Autistic Goblin

Staying healthy is never easy. That said go to the gym, stick with it and you’ll feel great about it after :D

drank Organic Mint Melange by Mighty Leaf Tea
13762 tasting notes

Well…it’s mint that’s for sure. I kinda of wish there was a bit more going on, but since it’s just supposed to be a mint tea, I’ll let it slide. I likely woudn’t buy this again, but mostly because I rarely need that much IN YOUR FACE mint :)

Missy

There can only one….

I didn’t expect much from this tea, so that’s ok. Would I purchase it again? Probably not as there are better out there. Really wasn’t feeling the "nectar’ portion of this tea whatsoever.

Bio

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.
