Another adventure in taste with my mouth today! i like this one a little more than the assam :) I don’t really have much else to say, feeling a little under the weather today and having this tea here with me has helped.

Final cup of this one today. The new harvest will eventually make it’s way to me, but for now, this is a sipdown. I didn’t love 2014, so here’s hoping 2015 is back to being the LB i love. :)

Terri HarpLady

I still haven’t gotten any of the 2015 teas from anybody. Oh, except the master Han puerh’s :)

Dexter

I have almost all 2015 blacks either in my house or en route if either of you would like samples.

Sil

i made a tiny order the other day of verdant 2015 things, so i’ll let you know if i forgot anything Dex. Wanted to make sure i had a chance to try them and figure out if i needed more this year. heh

drank Assam by Joseph Wesley Black Tea

tea from earlier today. We’ve had a nice lazy-ish sort of day today as our first weekend where we were both in town and for the most part, he wasn’t working. I enjoy this one, but it’s not my favourite assam. it’s a little drying while also feeling very juicy. That being said, i still really love these offerings from JW and they always make for an enjoyable cup to reflect on.

Sil

I’ll be sad when this one is done, but the weather appears to be turning cooler, so that’ll be ok until summer comes around again. :)

This was a much needed cup of tea after finally coming back from Ottawa. I made some good progress on teas while i was away, but still a ways to go over the next week. It’s almost september!!! I don’t anticipate having much time in septeber – 4 more weekends until we’re through to the other side of wedding! :)

still enjoying this. One more left that i may use to drink tomorrow, though maybe not since my day is going to be a little crazy. I’ve got work in the morning, followed by final dress fitting and then it’s off to the train station to head back home to Toronto. I love the train – lots of time to work, read and watch the world go by….but it’s going to be a bit of a crazy day. So looking forward to wrapping up the fitting though, and having that off my checklist for the wedding. Still enjoying this tea, though i’m not sure if i’d restock as there a re few other versions of this one that i like as much or more. With the canadian dollar likely to slide in to a long-er term visit to 70 cents, i may need to look at the best places in canada to order from. Or figure out how to convert a bunch of money and sit on it haha

Are you just wanting touchas?

MissLena

I feel your pain regarding the Canadian dollar..I drink a tea and think hey I need to order more, then realize it’s not very feasible as it will cost too much. :( hopefully it goes up again one day!

Sil

LP – Nope. i like to have a few around..this is more for the sticky rice sort of taste. I thankfully, have a bunch of tuchos from mandala and YS in my cupboard still

Liquid Proust

I had a Mandala yesterday… Some good stuff. I was just asking because I may stock up and shipping isn’t bad. However, I got plain shou. Isbglutinous rice and sticky rice the same? I too love the sticky rice shou

So no real clue what to write about myself here. A friend got me into drinking loose tea and it’s something I thoroughly enjoy though I have nowhere near the experience that many folks on the boards seem to have.

My other interests are cycling, reading, board games, disney cruises, world of warcraft and dancing – in no particular order. I love travelling and am currently working on trying to get my other half to as many place in the world as possible.
