JustJames

last semester was like a high school dance…. lol.

Fjellrev

Aww, I’m sorry. :(

JustJames

it’s going to be great… somehow i managed to impart to the NGO that i’m working for that i really know what i’m doing (? how did i do that again?!!!) and now i find myself with a surprising (did i say intimidating? i meant to say intimidating) amount of responsibility. =0\

OMGsrsly

You can do it, James! You have a bunch of tea loving cheerleaders on here. :)

JustJames

i am channeling yoda: do or do not…. there is no try.

TheTeaFairy

To help you cope, let me know if you want some tea from my cupboard, it’s finally all up to date! No swap, just a one way trip to BC, you obviously don’t have time to waste right now on anything else :-0

JustJames

you are so nice to me… =0)

TheTeaFairy

For real, don’t be shy, just let me know whenever :-) At 258, my cupboard will thank you!!!

JustJames

hmmm… i might! lol. ;0) (who doesn’t love tea parcels!!!)

Sil

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.
