Another nommy tea from today with a splash of maple syrup. It’s stupidly hot here in toronto and we don’t have air conditioning…and then i got to work and freeze to death. gotta love first world problems. This tea was great for warming me up today at work though and it was nice to have an old favourite from my cupboard as i work on trying to get some sipdowns in.

last of my teas from last night. this one is growing even more on me, the more that i drink it and i REALLY want more. I’ll have to see if anyone from work can pick some up and just send it to me interoffice.

OMGsrsly

That is sneaky. Interoffice tea deliveries?

Sil

woohoo! pulled this one out yesterday and added just a couple cacao shells to the mix while brewing. seriously, i love this tea. chocolate orange deliciousness. I really have missed drinking this tea.

CHAroma

Where do you get cacao shells?

Sil

the ones i have in my cupboard are from herbal infusions but i wouldn’t touch anything the owner does with a 10 foot pole anymore. he doesn’t understand customer service. from now on, i’ll be picking them up from Tisano (though their website is doing something weird this morning)

CHAroma

Cool, thanks!

Another day…more tea. Overnight last night so i am exausted today but i have so much to do before we go for dinner tonight. this was one of my teas last night and it was delicious. Pretty much exactly what i needed at the time. Nearing the end of my tin though, so i’ll need to decide if i’m going to order more or try and hole out a little longer before placing orders.

CHAroma

They’re already sold out of the spring harvest. :(

Sil

that’s ok. I rarely love the spring harvests.

Sil

i also REALLY don’t need more tea…trying to get my cupboard back down while is ave for the wedding. heh

CHAroma

Oh, I don’t know if I had heard you were engaged! Congrats!

Sil

heh probably did but forgot – was a while ago. :)

CHAroma

Is the wedding coming up soon?

Sil

september 19! too soon!

Another one from this morning. I don’t have a lot of tea drinking time today but i wanted to kick off the day with a couple cups as it’s HOT outside and i have a long day ahead of me with work and gaming. Here’s hoping i actually get some sleep in today as well. I overleafed this one a little today just to play with a little more and it worked out much better. the flavour is a lot richer and closer to what i want from this sort of tea.

don’t brew this on western. Today i had a mini gonfu session with this tea and it is MUCH better. It’s still a little “heavy” for me, so maybe i need to get through the first infusions a little faster (akak don’t drink them). but this works with shorter steeps. Still won’t be a favourite tea, but at least i know how to make it work better for me now :) very leathery and earthy.

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.
