Not actually drinking this, but i like to celebrate sipdowns so here it is :) Last small cup of this going to Tigress Al to figure out which teas to order with the free ship coupon we have from A&D! this one is on my list, as it’s a great every day tea, esp with a tiny bit of maple syrup :)

Another one from today and was just the right sort of “fruity” that i needed today. I REALLY want some fruity teas in my cupboard but, as i’ve mentioned more times than i can count, trying to hold off for another few weeks for my chicago trip heh. I added just a splash of sugar to this one to make the apricot flavours pop a little and it was super tasty.

HAPPY WEEKEND! Many adventures in store this weekend: more puppy visits, ikea for some shelves to make sure the dinos are safe when teh puppy gets here, birthday party for a friend, normal house things and of course SLEEEEEEEEEEP…and wine. wine is nice. and tea. lol

ugh like one tiny cup left of this one…maybe just add it to the remainder of my 1st picking (not that there’s much more of that one left in my cupboard either). Must. Resist. Buying. teas.

On the upside, sales have been far and few between or US only, so that’s helping refrain from buying :)

Kristal

Ah, another company I really wanna try out!

Kristal

…and it’s free shipping to Canada after $38. That’s very good. Grrr….

Sil

if you like greens and oolongs, their spring harvest is nice. If you prefer blacks, i seem to find the auutmn harvest more to my liking.

Kristal

I’m a big green tea drinker- can’t really do black and oolong. Their spring harvest does look divine. I’ll have to see what I do here…

Kristal

Ok, caved and bought $41 worth (4 different types). Really wanted to get a couple more teas done before ordering, but my justification is that it says its going to take 15-20 business days alone to ship to me so by that time I probably will have reached my goal ;)

Sil

i approve! haha

Kristal

haha glad to hear so ;)

Unfortunately I didn’t realize that the prices are American so I actually was changed $52. Damn exchange rate :/

R.F. Hill

I could drink this everyday, but like yourself, I resist the temptation of purchasing more.

Sil

for a while there i was drinking it daily and then the harvest wasn’t as delicious…so i’ve trained myself not to haha even though it’s almost back to being the way it was when i first bought it

only have maybe one more small cup left of this one…

on the upside, free shipping coupon i’ve been holding on for doesn’t expire until June? So there’ s still time for me to get my drink on with all the others in my cupboard!

drank Cranberry Orange Cider by 52teas

i really loved this one..and then i didn’t…and then i did..and then i didn’t…so i tried it as a cold brew and it was nice with a little honey. Verdict still out on this one again.

Christina / BooksandTea

I find that I really have to be careful with how I steep this one; if it’s for too long, it gets all woody. It also helps if there’s a piece of fruit in the leaf.

Sil

yeah. wasn’t a lot of fruit in mine

longer steep on this one worked even better for it – 6.5mins. :) a very tasty treat for earlier this afternoon.

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.
