The funny thing is, Earl Grey is what got me into a different level of tea (post teabag). I realized when I picked this up out of the sample bowl that I haven’t had one in months.

I liked it, although I’m not sure I like EG as much as I used to. I didn’t dislike it, but it didn’t elicit any MMMMM feelings from me. It was more of a utilitarian cup. And I don’t think it’s the tea, I think it’s me and my changing tastes. Interesting!

So yesterday we went to another board game thing. It’s an every Sunday afternoon thing, and we have met some nice people there. The people who run it are a married couple and very likable. Not the weird unwashed gamer stereotype. But, there is this other couple that is just weird. At our first interaction, the guy sat down and burped super loudly, and then he spent the whole game making inappropriate noises and doing gross things. Fine to see a couple of hours a week, but not really our preferred game partners at these events.

Yesterday we had 9 people, and had to split up into 4 and 5, and we ended up playing with the weird couple. Turns out the girl isn’t that weird. But the guy was sitting next to me and my skin was just crawling the whole time. ESPECIALLY when he took his fingernail, scratched inside of his ear (the ear next to me), and then scraped that nail off on one of his lower teeth. I. Just. About. Died. So there you go.

It is interesting how our tastes change. It’s also a-okay to break up with Earl Grey if he’s not floating your boat anymore.

And UGH! Creepy weird guy sounds awful. My skin would be crawling, too, and I’ve hung out with a lot of those weird creepy people and have a high tolerance for it.

EEEEEEEEK! That made me shudder… And I know exactly what you mean by the “weird unwashed gamer stereotype”, ick. I used to work at a used game store and that was definitely part of our customer base.

I had a bergamot tea for the first time in a couple months on Saturday, and it made me remember that I do actually like some bergamot teas. I guess I just got a little overloaded on bergamot after I ordered the Kusmi Russian Blends pack. :P

I have nothing against gamers, don’t get me wrong – my husband and I met due to a video game. But this guy is really lacking in even basic social skills.

Oh man, yeah that sort of behavior is pretty hard to stomach. Ugh. Also I agree with you on EG…kinda bores me nowadays. Was this at the place on 1st Avenue?

Marzipan

Yes, same place. We have gone three weeks in a row but there isn’t one next weekend.

I think EG is for cooler weather. I have no cravings but I love EG in general

boychik

Ewwww, the guy is gross.

The ear story was disgusting. Basic hygiene is a must, gamer or not!

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 or genmaichas. I am learning to like puerhs.

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.
