directions on this are 1 per cup…now i’m more inclined to say 2 per cup as the strength of the cup was a little weak imo. Still a good cup. I’ll try and do a comparison of this and the teabento ones just for fun later!

mmmmm another tasty sample i picked up from teabento. this isn’t as rich, thick of malty as the dragon balls that i’m used to…instead this is a lighter brew that is almost honey like…with a bit of malt. Still delicious, and i like the difference to it…just not what i was expecting :) happy to try this one!

oh this is what i wanted to start my day….slept in, we were supposed to take the dog on a morning afdventure and maaan neither one of us was up for getting up ha! Now that it’s practically this afternoon i’m working on getting going for the day. taking a break from baking today to go out and wander. this is the right balance of malty, hints of cocoa…smooth…yep. Kinda wish i’d picked up more than a sample of this one.

last cup of the evening i think since i don’t really have any herbals. I’ve been baking this week and for those here who know me..i LOVE orange creamsicles…every time there’s an orange creamsicle tea, i have to try it. Well i found a recipe for orange creamsicle cookies…so i made them and DAMN they are so good. I’ve eaten like 5 already. along side this tea – they were an incredible treat.

Final Count: 36

I used semi sweet chips instead of white chocolate…and triple sec instead of the orange liquer….and 1.5 cups of chips instead of the 2…since it seemed like a lot as i was mixing things in

Tamarindel

Thanks so much! I’ve been craving cookies and these look great!

Lexie Aleah

so much cleaning and baking this week. Glad i’m spending time at home and getting things done because it means i can drink my tea, but there’s a small part of me that would very much like to be on a beach somewhere, enjoying some sun! this is still a tasty option for me, though i’ll hold off picking up another bag right away i think…absence makes the heart grow fonder and all that haha

Pulled this one out today as well. This one i can get behind and i’m happy it’s in my cupboard. Sweet, cedar, wood, earthy….overall just an enjoyable session..though i was more western than gonfu this time around with a couple cups instead of a large number.

I had this one today along with the 2009 version. I have to say, this one really fell flat compared to the 2009 version. Same steeping paramters, same timing etc…and the other version just gave more and had me finishing each cup whereas this one more ofetn than not, i was like…meh. next cup pls. :)

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.
