Last tea of the night before I crawl in to bed and hope for just one day tomorrow that doesn’t have issues and problems. I probably shouldn’t behaving this with jr mints, dillpickle dip and regular chips and cinnamon raisin toast…but I am. So there. And no, I’m not pregnant lol just stressed :) I ate real dinner earlier so Nyah!

This Isn’t a bad blend. Holding off rating it since I’ve got lots of flavours going on here at the same time, but I am feeling the ginger and the rooibos….but there’s also a sweetness to it that must be the pineapple, though it doesn’t taste like that. I have a feeling as well, that I could have steeped this for longer to get even more of the ginger to come out. Ill have to try that next time.

Edit….also final tea count of the day…265. 11 days to go. Lol

Mmmm, chips with dill pickle dip are my favorite. I haven’t had that in so many years… Sigh.

Sometimes there just isn’t any answer for stress other than junk food.

Sil

Jessie…. I’ve been good about not having that crap in the house, or ignoring it when my other half buys it…but man, right this second I am sooooo glad for it.

Nicole – heck yeah! Though I’d totally trade you some junk food for a tea party ;)

jessiwrites

Yep, I never have it in the house. I live alone, so it’s pretty easy to eat healthy foods all the time. But I get the occasional craving, and might have to indulge. That just sounds too good.

Dinosara

You will be pleased to know I bought a small tin of tea at a grocery store today.

Sil

Hahaha lol if nothing else this makes for more tea drinking fun :)

Terri HarpLady

Sil: what happens in 11 days?
Dinosara: what kind of tea?

Sil

Terri – dinosara and I are having a friendly competition to see if I can get my cupboard caught up to hers before she gets back from vacation. I was at 280ish…she’s at 190ish?

whatshesaid

Man you sure have a lot of tea to drink in the next 11 days!!

Dinosara

Terr: It’s a huckleberry white tea from a local blender. It sounded good so I couldn’t resist even though I haven’t tried it.

Sil

that does sound good dinosara!
whatshesaid – um i basically need 6-7 sipdowns a day hahahahahahahaha yeah…so not going to happen but i can try :)

Dinosara

Oops that was supposed to say Terri and not just Terr :P

whatshesaid

I drink about five-six a day, you can do it! Just have smaller cups ;)

Terri HarpLady

That’s ok, everyone in my family calls me Ter : )
We all speak in mono syllables when we’re around each other

Terri HarpLady

Sil, really that’s 8-9 sip downs a day! Good luck…oh wait, who did I think I was talking to?
If anyone can do it, it’ll be you!!
And we’ll all be chanting you name, like a bunch of frat boys at a college beer chugging contest, “sil…sil…”
:D

Terri HarpLady

Or you can start a traveling tea box, LOL

Terri HarpLady

Two things I’ve never had:
1 – a huckleberry: I’m picturing double sized blueberry, but guessing its more along the lines of boysenberry or blackberry? That tea sounds lovely.
2 – dill pickle dip: what’s in it, besides dill pickles?

Sil

hahaha good plan terri! LOL
omg dill pickle dip is sooo good. It’s the philidelphia cream cheese dip. so uh cream chese and dill pickle. woooonderful with plain old regular chips.

Terri HarpLady

ah….guess I’ll never have it, since I’m allergic to milk & all milk products…

Sil

Oh no Terri! Uh…does that include dairy in teas? Only ask so I can make sure not to send you any with dairy in it.

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.
