5365 tasting notes

So I wish i could do a comparison of this one and florence side by side, but since i only have this tea with me here – too bad so sad. This is a really nicely done chocolate tea. I have a tagalong thingy with me from winning the H&S contest on FB. I figured the sachets might do well for the travelling thing. In any case..starting to fade. Good night all…

P.S What i learned in china today. never let two men order your dinner…you’ll end up with too much food that’s nearly entirely meat. Also…deep friend whole fish? Not my thing even if it tasted good…they kept staring at me, with their mouths agape…yep. not for me lol

What other interesting food have you been able to try?

Marcel Duchamp

In Japan, I had gone to a fire & water festival and it was 100 degrees and they were waving around fried Octopus on a stick. haha. I looking forward to green tea ice cream, not octopus. ha.

Ellen – I have at least one new thing for every meal. So it’s pretty all over the place. Th other night it was a traditional fire pot meal….lunch was traditional yunnan soup…I’ve had breaded crispy banana thingy….beijings local alcohol etc… The food that they’ve been taking me to has all been at these little local dives. So nothing “touristy” just good food in these hole in the wall places. It’s been pretty fantastic :)

I pretty much told them, go where you want to eat, don’t worry about me – ill find something, or if its a typical style restaurant, ill just eat whatever’s on the table since its an order 15 things and everyone eats it all kinda thing. It’s also forcing me to just go for it, since I used to be a really picky eater. I’m actually proud of myself for trying the fish since every bit of me was like NOOoOoOoOoOooOooOoOoOoOoO…don’t do it! But I did lol

I have been getting braver lately with what I’ll try, too. I’m finding things that I never liked when I was younger that I really like now. I hope I can stay brave for my next trip. :) I love that you are eating in little local places. My husband always wants to eat where the locals eat, too. :)

Nicole – it’s hard but i’m forcing myself and to be honest, there isn’t a single thing i’ve eaten yet that wasn’t tasty :) So it’s working out so far haha I’ll have pics when i get back. When i was growing up it was chicken and rice or beef and mashed potatoes. that was it. and cheese pizza. haha i’m glad i’ve moved beyond that lol

Ellyn

It sounds so exciting to try all new things – even when you have to push outside your comfort zone. It is so neat to hear about all of your (small, in between work) travel adventures!

Sil

well i’m glad someone’s enjoying my misadventures. just wish there was time for more…

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.
