From Dinosara.

I keep on reaching for the other Verdant tea she sent me, because I think I haven’t had it yet. But this is the tea I haven’t been drinking.

I’m sipping on it right now, having added some honey. It’s pretty nice. Spicy, sweet, earthy. I think that once I remember that this is the tea I need to start paying some attention to, it will go quickly. And it resteeps, as well. I’m just going to do one resteep as I have some other teas planned for this evening, but I’m pretty sure it could do 3 or more.

Thank you!

In other news, I bought a gel manicure kit. Instead of more tea. Umm. Go me?

If you mean the kind you cure with a light, they are AWESOME! My friend has one and we do our nails every now and then and it lasts and lasts. I will not paint my nails otherwise as it chips IMMEDIATELY. The gel lasts at least two weeks. Let us know what kind you got and if you like it. I need to buy one for myself!

I got the red carpet manicure ‘pro’ set and sandwiched regular nail polish. :) I also picked up the Quo by Orly base/top coat because it was on sale. I have plenty of nail polish colours so I probably won’t get many (any?) gel colours. Nail polish chips badly for me too, but so far so good. :)

Nice! I’ve been thinking about getting a gel kit since being at work just kills my polish. When I was at Sally’s the other day I saw that China Glaze has a new gel polish line too. Just add it to the list of things I’m obsessed with lol

All you really need is a light (LED, fairly cheap at Sally’s), and a base/top coat. Use regular polish in the middle, alcohol to prep the nails, and acetone to remove. I would have saved $20-30 doing it that way, but the Sally’s here is a pain to get to. Of course, I also came home and did my research while playing with the kit for the first time. :) And everything is cheaper in the States!

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!
