From HH TTB 3

I had this last night, honestly I didn’t get any citrus flavor from it at all, but it was a fine cup of black tea. Not weak at all, just pretty middle of the road. I think I have had so many awesome teas lately that I am getting a little spoiled.

Update on the textbook situation. As it turns out, only ONE of the three listed materials is required! So yippee! Problem is, there’s no info in the course material description to help me know why one would be chosen over another. Professor emailed. Now we are looking at about $200 max – that’s more like it for one class.

Marzipan

It’s loose leaf, but might be old – or adulterated.

I’m spoiled too, dear. Curse you, TeaVivre, Yunnan Sourcing, and Whispering Pines! Those three have ruined me for other black teas… ;)

Thank goodness! One of my calculus profs did that. He had a preferred text, but another prof had one he regularly used so the prof assigned exercises from both books. You only had to do one set obviously but it was kind of nice to have the other option when studying and it was good for the used textbook market. It might be worth it to email the prof to see if he has a preferred text. Or for your daughter to look at the books either in the library, or at the bookstore if she is going to school in town to see which is easier for her to work with.

Marzipan, I’ve only had this in sachet form and can send you a couple sachets if you’d like. Mine tasted good, sounds like you might have a bad batch. I also have 1tsp of Adagio grapefruit if you would like to have that.

Marzipan

That would be great!

I usually wait until about a week after the class starts to see if the professor will say the book is necessary, or just encouraged. Most of the time in my experience it’s been encouraged. The main exceptions tend to be humanities and philosophy type classes. Especially if the class has a web component (most at my university use the web component for quizzes homework and tests) most of the time the info you need is there and the book is more like a supplement.

I’m a broke college student paying for everything myself so I look to save money when ever possible (;

Bio

Mom of two practically grown girls, extremely happily married to a man who is amused by my obsession with tea, and company owner who works from home. Life is good.

Likes/dislikes: I love black teas, especially strong/malty ones. I am ok with flavored teas if the base is strong. I like some whites. I really don’t like any tea that tastes “green” – if I wanted to drink something that tastes like green beans, I would cook some green beans. I am not big on green teas, genmaichas or puerhs (although I’m still trying).

If we are trading, I have a STRONG aversion to coconut, banana and licorice. I love citrus, vanilla and spice. Not a fan of florals.

I own a secret shopping company, and we have a lot of national accounts. If you are interested in being a shopper please send me your location and I’ll see what we have in your area.
