SQUEAL!!!

Together again.

(And the ransom for Tax & Customs turned out to be only half of what I had feared)

I have a feeling you really enjoy this tea :)

You know, I have ordered from TeaSpring a few times, but somehow have never ordered this tea. But seeing as it has you squeeling, I’m thinking that I really HAVE to order this tea in my next order.

Auggy

I picture you and the TYTJ running towards each other from opposite ends of a field, arms outstretched, music playing in the background. Ah, love!

ScottTeaMan

I like teaspring…Although I haven’t tried this one, they have some great teas. :))

So adding this to my shopping list – I can’t believe their shipping is so cheap!

DJBooth, how did you guess? :p

Ssajami, if you try it, I hope you like it. It’s my favourite. :)

Auggy, Yes, in slow motion. And we would be wearing white loosefitting 80-ish clothes. :p

ScottTeaMan, I definitely recommend this one. It’s my favourite in the whole world. They do have another as well, which is a higher leaf grade and significantly more costly, but I found this was actually my preferred one of the two.

Mrawlins2, ooooh, I do hope you will enjoy it! Yeah, their shipping is nearly too good to be true, but it evens out because many of their things are rather costly.

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.
