finished up the last of this one from the bag that i had, now i just have another 86grams to go in the tin that i treated myself too when i placed this order. Still really enjoying this one, though it’s more a winter tea for me than spring.summer. heh

This one has been at the top of my wishlist for nearly a year. Happy to see someone sipping it! Have a favorite Bellocq I should try when I order? I purchased a sampler several years back in a little beach town shop which served as my Exodus into the Land of Tea but have only purchased gifts from them since. Next time I indulge an order, it’s back to Bellocq.

There are a few others i love… no 61. keemu in particular. That being said i have a bunch in my cupboard that i haven’t tried yet because im using them so hold off on purchases. when i get a hankering for new teas, i pick one to open and start haha

god damn i love this vanilla tea. I’m pretty sure this ranks at the top of my pile, or pretty near if not the top. I probably should have been drinking it a while back, but i just couldn’t help hoarding it.

this + maple syrup = good times for getting over thursday. I was done with this week yesterday, so now i just need to get through one more day. Still loving this tea – glad i’ve got lots left :)

You’re on your way! ;)

Sil

getting there…slow going right now though. At least the weights are dropping.

Kristal

Ever4y bit of tea used is a bit more gone…even without the cupboard # going down right away ;). Gotta remind myself of that too!

Sil

it’s hard…esp when you just want a low number haha. that’s why i have a monthly weight goal AND a monthly number goal.

Fjellrev

You’re most definitely doing very well.

Kristal

Good plan! I try and focus on using particular teas up by a certain time (i.e will use up X blend by the end of next week, etc). I know I’ve mentioned this too but I really want to focus on getting the majority of my cupboard 6 months or younger.

Sil

yep. slow and steady! haha i’ve only spent like 55$ in 4 months, which is UNHEARD of for me, because i’m trying to “reset” my cupboard. great for my budget, but i’m starting to want my staples back as i finish them heh

drank Coffee & Cigarettes by Butiki Teas

this one is finally starting to show it’s age…mostly in the “more cigarette” than coffee aspect. still fun to drink, but it’s a little tastier with some milk in it, which is something i really only do for this tea (or when making a latte) heh. Almost out of this one though, so that’s “good” in the sense that the flavourings are changing. I really do miss Stacy’s teas a bunch. sigh

drank Keemun hong cha by Genuine Tea
7540 tasting notes

Had a cup of this to start my morning out ever so long ago. I’ve been busy the last little while so i haven’t had much time to tea log. I don’t mind this tea, but it’s not my favourite. I think i’ve said that before. It’s a perfectly acceptable tea – even good for an average every day tea, but it doesn’t hit the mark i want in a keemun. Still love that genuine tea offers free shipping. period. Will have to check out a few more of their other teas at some point and see if there’s magic there :)

There’s a lot to be said for free shipping, even though it is seldom truly free.

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.
