Also finished this one off today. This one never quite hit the right spot for me. Never a bad cup, but it was hard to coax the flavouring out of this one for it to be something i really wanted. Still happy i had it and tried it though :)

Final Count: 38

drank Keemun Xiang Luo by Capital Tea Ltd.

Another of the keemuns i picked up over black friday. It’s nice to have some chinese teas back in my cupboard after pretty much just having flavoured teas and LB for the longest time haha. I let this one get a little cold before paying attention to it, so i really need to have this again. That being said, it’s a nice cup even cold. Smooth, lighter profile…tasty.

drank Keemun Classic by Capital Tea Ltd.

Dexter sent this to me in another life and i’ve finally picked some up for my cupboard since i had ZERO keemuns! This harvest isn’t smokey, but it is a tea that i’ll be adding a drop of maple syrup to when i take it in the travel mug i think. It’s got a bit of a cocoa feeling to it but not overly so….there’s a depth here that i am enjoying.

ZERO keemuns! Clearly a situation that needs to be reconciled.

Sil

Evol Ving Ness

Excellent, way to right the universe, lady.

Dexter

Yay for having Keemun back in your cupboard

this one is also a new addition to my cupboard after a sample from Dexter a billion years ago. Funnily enough, this version gets a higher rating from me because it’s right up my alley. I may have to do a comparison with teavivre’s sometime for fun to see which i prefer. But today, this is malty, smooth and just what i wanted this morning as i recover from a long, challenging ride yesterday.

This one is in my cupboard after getting a sample an eternity ago from YYZ which i really enjoyed. This is going to be a great every day cup for me…something that i can drink every day without feeling guilty for not paying attention to a seriously incredible cup of tea. It is smooth and well balanced, a tasty ceylon!

morning tea while i cleaned up the giant mess in the kitchen, prepped dinner for tonight and got ready to go riding. My other half is wearing the dog out in the woods so that we can go get some riding in this afternoon….all i relaly want to do is go buy more boardgames to play! haha Still enjoying this tea even if it’s not my favourite of the 3 i have left!

this one was a nice morning cup, but i’ll leave the rating and such for my next cup since it was more than 12 hours ago that i had it haha. Sometime after my run and puppy adventures but before the rest of the day’s craziness!

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.
