does anyone know if it’s possible to ‘hit a wall’ with essay writing? i mean, i know you can do it with jogging and jumping jacks…. but i have all of my very sensible data sitting in front of me, but that’s it. it’s like a paper weight. with eyes. blinking at me. sigh. c’mon!

this tea makes me smile though…. the rude data that was never taught that staring is impolite can watch me as i sip. yyz, my awesome friend, chased all over toronto to get this elusive tea for me! (ahem, and possibly discovered a few things she’d been looking for? lol)

i love this tea. light and fruity, but in a summer way versus the screaming ‘i actually want to be a caffeine free herbal!!’ the way some can be.

possibly my essay will make more sense after i run my whipped cream experiment…. i plan on playing with matcha and strawberries. i may take pictures and post them on FB. if it’s an abysmal failure i make no promises that i won’t gripe! =0)

thank you yyz!

Your welcome James! Yes it’s entirely possible to hit a wall while writing an essay. Been there done that. I either was trying to condense a books worth of research into essay form, or most likely over thinking and planning the whole thing. My advice walk a way from it, make your fancy drink, which sounds fun by the way, then just allow it to tumble out of your head. Don’t worry about phrasing or making it perfect, that’s what writings for. Don’t over think it. Enjoy the tea!

Yes, I did discover some things I had been looking for (Turkish glasses, some other teas:)) and discovered some new stores!

i think i’m just at the stage where i’m done….. of course NOT being able to stop is less helpful. i am being evaluated for a scholarship. so i can’t even throw caution to the wind and say f*** it, lol!

Skye Comstock

yeah….i can’t see it. :(

Skye Comstock

you can friend me on fb

JustJames

will do! sorry…. i keep my profile decently private =0/

no problem. It’s really safer that way these days. I want to know more about matcha tho. I’m very interested in the whole matcha ceremony, but not sure if i will like it so if i should bother buying all the equipment and stuff-or even the tea itself, but I’m intrigued by these flavored ones that you posted about. I looked at Red Leaf tea’s website after you posted about the black current matcha and i think i ordered something off there(sometimes i forget what i order…lol).

I hit a wall all the time with my writing. I either do what yyz suggested, or I just write until something useful comes out — and it always does, eventually, just takes a few hundred more words to get there. ;)

JustJames

that does work, absolutely…… i just have a deadline. which isn’t helping. lmao!

OMGsrsly

You can do it, James! :) (Also, matcha whipped cream? Genius. Doing that in the morning!)

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.
