I need to drink this more often. Heck. I need to cycle through ALL the teas more often, instead of just drinking what’s new and shiny.

So. I like this tea. Some people don’t. That’s OK. I’m drinking a large mug with some maple whipped cream on top. Delicious and sweet and desserty (like spiced cake), without being too much like Red Velvet Cake or Coffeecake.

Edit: Also, candy corns are divine.

Oh god, I need to stop only drinking the shiny new tea also!

JustJames

aw! what’s wrong with shiney? =0/

OMGsrsly

Nothing’s wrong with shiny! I just don’t want to forget about all the other awesome in my cupboard.

JustJames

everything can be shiny….. there’s enough shiny for everyone. i think the shiny is generous. true shiny isn’t selfish.

OMGsrsly

But I am blind and must rediscover the shiny constantly.

JustJames

then mail me your tea and bit by bit i’ll mail it back to you (mostly intact…. only small bits gone to make sure it hasn’t turned poisonous) and that way it will always be new. and shiny. see?

OMGsrsly

Hmm… Mayb..

No. :D

Although I don’t mind sharing small bits. That’s another good way to rediscover what’s in the cupboard.

JustJames

this is what i come up with as a solution when you declare that teas have become de-shiny-ified. i thought it was exceptionally creative. ;-)

OMGsrsly

Creative, most definitely. :) But asking me to part with all of my teas, even just temporarily?! Blasphemy, James. Pure blasphemy. :D

JustJames

de-shiny-ifying is the blaspheme OMGsrsly! lol. what if your teas heard you and went on strike? what if they with held services? with held flavour? curious minds would like to know what you would do…..?

OMGsrsly

I would be forced to consider drastic measures. Like writing a program to choose random teas…

Dexter

It’s already been done – will randomly choose a tea from your cupboard here…..

well you forced me to speak for the tea. poor tea. who calls a tea un-shiny? so mean. i should paint tiny little floating strike signs and mail them to your tea…. dexter…. do you know if tea has opposable thumbs by chance? (wow that might be a lot of signs).

So cool!

Ummmmmm………. no?

Bio

Black teas are my favourite, although I do drink the occasional green tea. I am exploring herbal and fruity teas for summer icing and winter evenings, and oolong and pu erh are new and exciting… although I do not like a tea that tastes mostly of seaweed.

No: Spearmint or peppermint, licorice root, gluten (cookie bits, wheat, rye, barley, I’m OK with oats)

After sending my first box to the USA, bubble-envelope swaps are where it’s at.

When I rate, my ratings are based on the little faces, and depend on what face I make when I sip the tea! :)

Also: A map of tea places in Vancouver. I’ve been to some of them, but not a lot. If you have any suggestions, please let me know!
