huh, thanks MissB for revealing the maybe answer to the riddle!

i’ve always been a riddle boy, lol. nina’s for red fruit teas. dammann freres for fruits of all kinds. mariage freres for snapshots of impressionists’s dreams…… fauchon for flavoured greens?

a light sweet raspberry rose tea. unique. beautiful. maybe the answer is this: i like my fauchon green. don’t think i would have guessed that, lol.

thank you MissB. (always lookin’ out for me) xo

this is a beautiful piece. if i could drink it and frame it i would.

I just read your profile.
Which auto immune do you have?
I have Diabetes, Lupus, Fibro, & Sarcoid…
Among other things, lol, it is essential to have a sense of humor ;~}

it’s neuro transmission something! lazy doctors say ms with a creative spin, but the neurologist thinks more likely a channelopathy which run in my family. to be fair ms is 1:1000 whereas a channelopathy is 1:30 000 000. suffice to say the docs are glad i am well versed in my own medical file, lol. it’s a chewy read. the only thing they all agree on is that i should donate my body to science when i die LMAO. yay post mortem company? =0P

MissB

Heh. Or those companies that slice you up and display you as science and art. ;)

JustJames

i would be okay with that! so long as i get to contribute to the framing choice. =0)

yes. i am dead serious. the body farms…. not as much a priority for me.

Time For A ReWrite!

A good friend of mine on here kindly asked me to do the Steepster world a favour and list my allergies front and center (fair enough, lol):

-COFFEE … rare, nasty, not even a bit funny if i’m exposed. (call me original)

-ROOIBOOS … is a new appearance. under certain circumstances i’m okay with it (ie if it’s GREEN and paired with mate) but because i have an auto immune disease i try not to poke at things.

*NOT an allergy, but an abnormality that drives my tea buddies bananas, i AM INCAPABLE OF TASTING CARAMEL AND TOFFEE. so i thought i’d list it at the top too. it’s very annoying. they smell great!!?

Hi! I’m James!

I’m a student: double major of human geography and psychology with the intention of chasing a double doctorate. (reading that over it occurs to me again that i must be crazy).

i’m a live and let live sort. i look and see alot of silver linings. my discovery of tea has only served to further that viewpoint. for me tea is art and nuance, watercolours and bold brushstrokes….

swaps are grand things! the element of surprise in a tea swap completely trumps forrest gump’s chocolate box life metaphor, lol.

favourites: french teas dammann freres, mariage freres and nina’s paris especially.

i have recently discovered a german tea company that has romanced me: tea gschwendner (sp?)

mandala teas is brilliant and a company i count on.

justea and tealet are companies i study because of both their exceptional products and and business models, as well as their work with farmers who are TOO POOR for fair trade certification. this is highly relevant to my studies.

90-100 i need more
80-90 i might need more, or it might be a respect vote
below 75? it was likely an oops buy. my evolution into french teas has vastly focused what i like!!

however, i’m always open to trying things.

dislikes so far: guayasa, darjeeling, most peach teas.
