SIPDOWN!

I figured I really need to start drinking some of my verdant samples since i know i’ll be placing another order in the near future (well month or so). I still enjoy this one, though I’m having a go at drinking this dragonwell style today. It’s uh…. a little interesting and a little challenging not to eat the tea lol But i’m sure i’ll get it figured out before i need to stop drinking this. haha.

Oh Happy snow day!

Bonnie

I put mine out so I would remember it this morning. I grab black tea most of the time.

Sil

me too bonnie, me too. I did pick up a bunch of pu-erh samples from verdant the other day as well that i need to go through…but i need to practice with my gaiwan first lol so that’s today/this weekend. Mostly so i can also try and get a sense of what i like in case i find anything interesting in china while i’m there

Bonnie

Going to China?!? How did I miss this piece of information?!
Lucky you! Tea animals and small cups would be easy to pack and bring back because of size. Ask David Duckler! Shoot him a note.( that would make a good verdant website article).

Sil

Bonnie – haha Unless my trip is cancelled i’m leaving on friday and i’ll be gone for 2 weeks. It’s on business so i won’t have a lot of time while i’m there, but I should have at least a bit of time to get over to the tea market. :) oh and maybe that whole wall thing they have going j/k

Sil

Also Bonnie…Not even sure how i’d get a hold of David even if i’m sure he’d be willing to give me some pointers heh.

Bonnie

CHINESE NEW YEAR?! Won’t everything be almost closed down?

Sil

Naw Chinese New year is next week. I’ll be there the week after for two weeks (into march..). There will still be festivities happening but my colleagues are all off the week before i get there.

Bonnie

I thought you were leaving tomorrow when you said Friday. And I thought the celebration was the week preceding and two weeks after in duration. Oops! (Glad I was wrong about the day with this storm!)

Sil

yeah there will be celebrations but things are supposed to mostly be closed only the week i’m not there :)

Bio

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.
