drank Black Pearls by CitizenTea
13902 tasting notes

Saw this in Cavo’s feed this morning, so figured i could start my day by trying it as well. 5 pearls for 3.5 min, just under boiling. This is a smooth brew, there’s no bitterness and i’m for sure getting some chocolate like notes at the back end of the sip. Not sure i’d keep this in my cupboard, but i’d happily add this to an order to get free shipping heh.

time to get to work on sipdowns…this weekend spent with tea friends means i’m back up to 87!

You’re still under 100 though :)

I was at like 17(!) but now I’m up to 36 and I feel bad lol.

:D
I’m trying to remember who else had a black pearl tea with a profile like this, but at least this one is very convenient to order (and FAST), so that’s a huge plus for CitizenTea.

I have some of these but haven’t tried them yet – need to do that soon. The best pearls I’ve had were from Mandala – but they haven’t had them for years :( Second would have to be Teavivre – but would be interested in any others that people like.

Sil

that’s my order as well dexter. haha. that’s not to say that these are bad..just not quite what i want full time in my cupboard – i’d pick up teavivire’s for that.

Oh, I forgot about Teavivre’s too! I’ll have to keep them in mind because they were a good price. :D

(Those Mandala ones WERE the best. :( /cue intense sadness/)

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.
