the hairs…they are chopped. snick snick. ALL GONE! well ok now all gone but there was about 10 inches removed. bwahahah but it’s still chin length so yeah. now to figure out what to do with is after i get through the beloved “after hair cut day” where your hair still looks good from the cut haha. Morning tea, from morning. Just revisiting a few favourites before i get back to sipping up old teas and samples. It helps that this falls into the older category as well :)

Yay haircuts! I got mine done last month for the first time in about a year, and came out of the salon with this really sleek looking ‘do… that lasted about 2 days until I washed it and couldn’t be bothered to blow dry it straight :p

Sil

yeah haha i am so not the type to blow dry and style. wash n go is more my thing

yyz

So with you Sil, especially since I’ve had jobs with 2:30am wakeup calls.

Anna

YOUR HAIRS. MY HAIRS HAS QUESTIONS.

Sil

hahahaha oh Anna…

Cavocorax

Wash n go!!!! YES!!!
Honestly, I wouldn’t know what to do with my hair even if I tried. Half the time I forget to brush it. If I’m feeling fancy I’ll add mousse and hope that keeps it from frizzing out, and if I get too annoyed I’ll ask Joe to chop it down.

YAY HAIR!

OMGsrsly

Cavo, you are so lucky. I have to style or it’s a right mess. Cowlicks everywhere. Even today I tried, but the cowlicks won.

So this brings me to 140. In March. So there. neener neener lol I’ve been sipping on this since i got home, trying to figure out what i need to do to get my other half to get his darn tax info to me so that i can file for him….what needs to be done for work tomorrow and what the heck i want to do with my hair tomorrow. CHOP CHOP CHOP!

I’ve been sick of peach teas lately..but this one isn’t overly cloyingly peach because the base comes through a bit more. Also, i think the caramel in this one helps…or at least i think that’s caramel. It’s not in your face either. mostly…just a good cup tonight for what i was puttering around with haha

VariaTEA

175 :(. Think I can drink 35 teas in the next 4.5 hrs?

Sil

Hey 175 is good! I’m actually going to try and get to 120/125 in April so that May can be 115/110 and by end of June I’ll be at 100. However I’m planning like 5 orders at the moment hahaha

VariaTEA

At the beginning of March, I was at 90. I will just have to work on getting through lots of teas in April so once again we can be equal :P. Easier said then done though as I have a few swaps on the way. However, then I move home and can hide from all the tea until I get my cupboard under control.

Sil

i have a few swaps incoming as well..but i just look at that as decreasing cupboard volume haha even if numbers go up, easier to get through swap sizes and it helps decrease other teas you might have more of :)

VariaTEA

Tis true. So wise you are.

Cavocorax

Are you just drinking those Shmiracles-sized samples as one giant cup? :O

Sil

Just normal sized sil mug….shmiracles sent me roughly enough for 3 normal ppl cups….so 2makes one of mine and the. Last little little cup goes to Terri :)

Dinosara

I’ve made my peace with ~120 that are in my cupboard now, especially since almost none of them are close to sipdowns! I suppose I will have more samples soon, though. :)

Sil

120 isn’t so bad!

drank Ginger & Lemon Myrtle by Lupicia
4044 tasting notes

Sipdown on this one as well, with the last cup going to kittenna I tried this one as a cold brew and it’s also enjoyable. I did find that this one tastes almost exactly the same hot brewed, as cold steeped. So that makes it a nice one to drink year round in terms of hot summer days needing something refreshing :) woot woot!

Preparation
Iced 8 min or more

drank Golden Monkey Black Tea by Teavivre

I have to say that this is another tea that keeps growing on me. Every time i have it, i seem to like it a little better and it gets a little more delicious. TOday it came across as particularly chocolatey and malty and made for an awesome cup at work.

drank French Breakfast by Mariage Frères
4044 tasting notes

sipdown…soo sad. I’ve finished the tin of this that i picked up in december and it’s a sad day. The more i’ve had this, the more it’s grown on me, though i think american breakfast is still the winner. This will go on the wishlist for one of those days that i order from MF…july? :)

cteresa

July sounds like an excellent idea, go for it! I want more American Breakfast as well.

Sil

mmmmm american breakfast…

much take 5 mins to catch up on backlogs! It’s March 31st! eep!

I had a lovely cup of this in the morning as a latte to start my day off. It’s going to be a long week and i needed today to go well. Overall, I likely won’t pick this one up again, but getting through the rest of this won’t be bad.

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.
