Another tea from yesterday…all i really recall about this one is that it’s quite tasty. This is a great little company that doesn’t have a huge number of selections but their customer service is good, their packaging is fun and the teas that they DO have are really enjoyable. They had samples for us about a year ago on steepster and i tried them then…it’s taken me a while to place an order and sadly the keemun they had is no longer a tea they carry. So i picked this one up as well just to try it since i’d been so pleased with their keemun. I’m not disappointed! best of all their “sample” sizes are very generous ranging from .5os to 1.5 haha

Final Count yesterday: 78 (forgot to log these ones in to my cupboard..this does not bode well for my end of year goal…)

haha i’m backlogging from yesterday while listening to a serial podcast/miley cyrus mashup. oh the things the internet does… too funny. still enjoying this one, though likely not a reorder as it’s knock your socks out of t he water sort of tea. I would for sure pck this one up from time to time just to revisit though.

NOMS! figured i’d have this one, one more time before i let the rest sail off to the others in the group :) I rather enjoyed this one. Thanks for sharing MissB! just the right tastiness level for the raspberry imo.

drank Lemon & Ginger by Barry's Tea

Another one from missB I’m trying to get through as many of her teas as possible since the girls are going to be picking up the box this weekend. I actually quite enjoyed this one. It’s got a nice balance of lemon and ginger and for a bagged tea…quite nice! :)

drank Jin Pin Black Tea by Yezi Tea

yay! i finally managed to get another yezi tea order in. I say finally because i’m sure it was nearly a year between orders and that sucks because they really are a great tea company. I’ve enjoyed both their “red” and their black teas and this one is no exception. It was really nice to revisit this today. delicious!

I feel like there’s a part of my that is intent on finishing up the first package of this that i have so that i don’t have “extra” in my spare box. It’s the box where i put all the excess teas that are already out and ready to drink, for when i drink more down. Just incentive to get to the last of it i think lol. Still loving this one, though the 2013 was just a teeny bit more my favourite!

drank Laoshan Village Chai by Verdant Tea

I haven’t picked this one up in a while, even though it was my favourite chai for a while. Once the formulation changed and goji berries were added…i was just confused. I picked some of this up in my last order and had it today. I still quite enjoy this one, but i AM tempted to pick all the stupid goji berries out. i don’t feel they add to the taste and their bright red blotches in my cup annoy me haha

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.
