Kittenna

Sipdown? Already?!

Sil

Kittenna

Hahaha.

Sil

…it’s also why my oldest tea is from february.. of this year.

Cavocorax

I think I need to make that my next goal. And maybe I’ll allow myself to dump some of my 1.5 year old tea!

Terri HarpLady

Cavo, I finally dumped the last of my peach oolong, which was old enough to be considered a good puehr, if it has been aged properly…& was made by the right people…with the right tea…uh….sorry, I just woke up…from some crazy bizarre dreams…
Anyway, it now resides in my compost pile, where it will become an amazing shu, of sorts, for my garden, & when it rains, it will create a different kind of tea, & my plants will love it!

Terri HarpLady

Now I want pancakes with maple syrup & bacon…sigh…

Sil

i am doing my best to try and make sure my oldest tea is only a year old.

OMGsrsly

That’s a good goal, Sil. One I think I should work on as well. :)

Terri HarpLady

Not counting puerhs, of course!

Cavocorax

Terri – I bet that felt great just letting it go. :P There might be a tea or two that I need to just get rid of due to age but I’ll give them all a last cup just to be sure. But I don’t want to hold on to tea that I don’t enjoy and will never drink either (if it’s stuff that won’t make a good freebie).

Sil – that’s a great goal. One year should be even enough to get through a tin of my Damn Fine Tea’s. The really OCD part of my brain wants to go through my old email receipts so that I can backfill the order dates on my spreadsheet for my older teas. :P

Sil

lol i’m just adding in a general month/year to my spreadsheet…the cupboard does a decent job, but only if i remember to take teas out, before adding in the restock of a tea i reordered. I’ve also started to write the month on the teas in my cupboard as i get them so i see it as soon as i open my cupboard. :)

OMGsrsly

Oh, I like that plan, Sil! Here’s me, going and labelling all the new Verdant teas in my cupboard. :)

Sil

haha silly goose

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.
