….aaaand that’s a wrap! this is officially all gone from my cupboard and no reorders allowed until i meet my goal as per the agreement dexter and omgsrsly and i made! I’ve got a looonnng way to go before i can order again so i’m doing my best to try and get at least one sipdown in a day… this one will be a restock someday as i love it.

Final Count: 143 (two things to pick up from mail jail tomorrow though…)

this + maple syrup makes me a happy girl! I’ll be sad when this is gone, but at least i got to have it one more time before it was gone for good!

drank Zhu Rong Yunnan Black by Verdant Tea

i had this one today because it’s one of my oldest teas in my cupboard (7 months) and i’m nowhere close to being somewhat close to a sipdown. not that i want to get rid of it, but i can drink it and enjoy it and not worry about it being gone in a flash! i still really like this, even if it’s not the same as the first harvest i fell in love with.

Dexter

That is so funny – this is also one of my oldest teas and I have A LOT of it. I like this tea, you like this tea – why aren’t we drinking this tea?

seriously…no one else has written about this one yet? WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU PPL!? ok but really? I enjoyed this one again today and i have a little cup left to enjoy, possibly tomorrow with a little vanilla..yum cinnamon heart deliciousness!

M

Oh yum. The name sounds delicious.

OMGsrsly

Well, what’s wrong with me is you have my Butiki teas!

Lariel of Lórien

Mine is still at my post office.

Sil

omg…teeechnically i don’t have it yet lol

whatshesaid

The smell of it freaks me out because it smells more like cinnamon hearts than bread… so not quite what I was hoping for and I’m a bit scared to try it! I have it here at work though so maybe I will make it now.

Sil

it’s a cinnamon heart tea… sooo uh if you don’t like cinnamon hearts…..don’t drink it lol

whatshesaid

yeah I find “warm cinnamon bread” to be a misleading name, because cinnamon buns/bread aren’t made with cinnamon flavoured candy!

I just had a cup earlier………. it’s going to go in my sell/swap pile, i think

Sil

yeah stacy made a comment in one of my notes on that.. i’m hoping to try adding a little vanilla to it and see what happens… will keep you posted.

Cavocorax

I drank it but it didn’t blow me away? Which is why you ended up with the rest of my bag. :P I’m happy you like it so much! (And.. I didn’t get cinnamon heart from it? Shoot!)

another from MissB i had this one with dinner tonight and it was mostly just vanilla to me. I wasn’t getting a whole lot of chocolate or almond…not that i’m complaining since i do love me some vanilla..but that it was i tasted. The rest is off to whatshesaid as part of the package missb sent for us!

mmmmm really glad i picked this one up during their boxing day sale. I miss my original sichuan caravan and this is a close enough replacement….puer + ginger. Sure it’s missing all the other good stuff BUT it was just what i wanted in a flavoured tea for today.

Amanda 'SoggyEnderman' Wilson

Ginger and puerh is such a great combo!

this + cacao = best snow day tea ever. Although i DID go in to work, i was the only one who did. But i got a ton of work done and it was nice and relaxing as far as tea drinking and working went…so there!

DeliriumsFrogs

I thought of you the other day while I was eating this really dark chocolate, fudgy brownie, while drinking LB… it was probably the most delicious combo I’ve ever had (I liked it even better than red wine and chocolate! Who knew!?)…. You, dear Lady, are genius. :)

OMGsrsly

Better than wine and chocolate, what?! (More wine for me… :D )

DeliriumsFrogs

It really was…. It was crazy! lol

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.
