sipdown! (196) i tried this today a couple ways…mostly because the first sip i took went something like:
“oh look yummy tea”

GAH! ew!

yeah…no. not sure if i was just way over brewing it or missing something but no. no. no. Makes me sad because i feel like i SHOULD like this. but i can’t get behind it.

I’m becoming convinced (said with humor) that we have opposite taste in tea. Even my friends at the teahouse liked this one…so maybe you are sensitive. I know that I am, and usually use a little less leaf.

Sil

Opposite and yet not lol cause sometimes we’re both bang on. I actually think its the fruity notes and possibly too much leaf. I tried a couple small brewings but wanted to save a bit to share with Terri.

I loved the fruity note..so did my tea guys. Weird. Anyway…my stash of tea is way down…to smaller 1oz. packets of tea and 50% puerh (which isn’t easy to drink up quickly!). Don’t think I’ve bought tea from anyone but 4 vendors in a year (although I’ve received samples from other companies now and then). If I can’t drink the tea at it’s best I disrespect the tea is another way to look at it (I have almost no flavored tea anymore). Some keeps well and the rest needs drinking. Can’t afford tea like I used to anyway so I’ve found that choosing a few favorites keeps me very happy with no regrets!

I’m actually finally starting to trim down my cupboard, though the numbers don’t seem to indicate it. I’ve manage to only place 1 order a month for the past couple and i’m working my way through all of the older things in my cupboard. 2oz is not in my vocab anymore for any tea purchases except a favourite i’ll drink every week.

I’m also trying to keep it down to 1 order per month, rotating through different companies that I like, although I haven’t been overly successful yet. ;)

I like the name of this one, lol. Hopefully I’ll enjoy the taste as well.

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.
