I’ve been craving this one since last night when I went home from Lexitus’, but given the time I thought it best not to have any. I’m trying to learn to get back in the habit of getting to bed at a decent hour, and I have finally admitted that it may have something to do with the tea I’m having in the evening. I hate to admit it because this is not something that has ever bothered me before. But people change and people get older you know? Maybe it’s just one of those things. Possibly the development of Steepster into a more social site to hang out on compared to the very first incarnation of it is also making me drink more tea. Bottomline is, I knew I couldn’t have any when I got home at 10.30pm. (train delays for the GRRR)

But I can certainly have it now. Haven’t done any of my chores yet, of course, but I can certainly have my tea.

Mmmmmmm…. coconut.

I ♥ NewYorkCiTEA

Indeed. I’m also going the tea before tasks route today.

It’s seven hours later. I haven’t done hardly any tasks yet. Except buying new boots which Lexitus ordered me to do.

I ♥ NewYorkCiTEA

I think that means it’s time for another cup of tea, both to continue putting off the tasks and to celebrate the boot buy. So are the boots cute? Or are they work boots?

Angrboda

They’re just ordinary winter boots. I’m not really particularly in love with them, but they’re good enough. I liked my old boots, but they were worn through the soles so my choice was down to either ‘boots, feet warm and wet’ or ‘wellies, feet cold and dry’. So he said, “Buy new boots, woman!” or something like that. It was really hard to find some that lived up to all my criteria. Not too much heel, preferably none, more substantial than just a layer of leather, not out of my budget and not uglier than sin. So they’re functional winter boots, but not OMG YAY boots.

I’ve been working hard to build up a solid selection of no-caffeine tea for this very reason. Tea can be sneakier than coffee – much less obvious as to what’s happening with the caffeine!

Angrboda

Yeah, but herbals don’t interest me and I don’t like rooibos. The selection of decaf reasonably available to me is EXTREMELY small, and if I can get non-decaf then I’d rather have that. I’ll just have to drink something else. Or instead of making a pot with two cups in it, just make one cup’s worth.

Profile

Bio

Ang lives with Husband and two kitties, Charm and Luna, in a house not too far from Århus. Apart from drinking tea, she enjoys baking, especially biscuits, reading and jigsaw puzzles. She has recently acquired an interest in cross-stitch and started a rather large project. It remains to be seen whether she has actually bitten off more than she can chew…

Ang prefers black teas and the darker sorts of oolongs. She has to be in the mood for green and white, and she enjoys, but knows little to nothing about, pu-erh.

Her preferences with black teas are the Chinese ones, particularly from Fujian, but also Keemun and just about anything smoky. She occasionally enjoys Yunnans but they’re not favourites. She has taken some time to research Ceylon teas, complete with reference map, and has recently developed some interest in teas from Africa.

She is sceptical about Indian blacks as she generally finds them too astringent and too easy to get wrong. She doesn’t really care for Darjeelings at all. Very high-grown teas are often not favoured.

She likes flavoured teas as well, particularly fruit flavoured ones, but also had an obsession with finding the Perfect Vanilla Flavoured Black and can happily report that this reclusive beast has been spotted in a local teashop near where she works. Any and all vanilla flavoured teas are still highly attractive to her, though. Also nuts and caramel or toffee. Not so much chocolate. It’s a texture thing.

However, she thinks Earl Grey is generally kind of boring. Cinnamon and ginger are also not really a hit, and she’s not very fond of chais. Evil hibiscus is evil. Even in small amounts, and yes, Ang can usually detect hibiscus, mostly by way of the metallic flavour of blood it has.

Ang is not super impressed with rooibos or honeybush on their own. She doesn’t care for either, really, but when they are flavoured, they go usually go down a treat.

Ang used to have a Standard Panel of teas that she tried to always have on hand. She put a lot of thought into defining it and decided what should go on it. It was a great idea on paper, but in practise has been discovered to not really work as well.

Ang tries her best to make a post on Steepster several times a week. She tends to write her posts in advance in a word doc (The Queue) and posting from there. This, she feels, helps her to maintain regularity and stops her from making five posts in three days and then going three weeks without posting anything at all.

Angrboda is almost always open to swapping. Just ask her. Due to the nature of the queue, however, and the fact that it’s some 24 pages long at the moment, it may take a good while from she receives your parcel and until she actually posts about it.
