I am drinking all of my best and favorite teas. My birthday is coming up, so why not treat myself? Also, I have so much tea in my house that is just okay, why would I drink that and let my good tea go stale? So, I am hoping to sip this one down today. I have made one large pot of this one this morning, and I have just enough left for another pot or for a gong fu session.

yay for favorite teas!

Yay!! You definitely should be drinking your favorite teas. :)

Anna

Yes! I am all for it!

Thanks for the support! Drinking your favorites also means letting go of them, though…But it can also mean making room in your cabinet for new favorites, so that’s how I’m trying to look at it. :-)

Anna

Do you have many favourites you can’t restock?

CharlotteZero

It seems like most of them! Excluding flavored teas, which are usually pretty consistent, I find that most of the unflavored teas I drink vary noticeably from year to year and season to season. But sometimes a favorite tea will be even better when I restock it with a more recent batch, and most teas taste best when they’re fresh (at least that’s how I convince myself to sipdown favorites).

I’m trying to get into unflavoured teas more, but I find the whole notion of not being able to restock my faves sort of unsettling and a little disconcerting.

I still support the sipdown cause, though. =)

Bio

Tea means so many things to me, it is so deep and it is revealing new meaning to me all the time.

Tea is a mindfulness practice, and a doorway through which to explore different philosophies, cultures, and historical times. Tea is hospitality and a way of communion. Tea is an art, a ritual, and a tradition. Tea is a complement to the foods I eat (preferably vegan desserts) and is something I enjoy collecting and curating.

I love to swap, or even just send people samples, so if there’s anything in my cupboard you’d like to try, just send me a message!
