Also managed to finish off the last of this today. Sad news but also good since i’m a step closer to allowing myself an order, and a step closer to my sipdown goals haha still enjoy this one and i’m sure it’ll be back in my cupboard before long.

Kristal

I feel you! I actually just hit my goal which was to get below 30 teas (I’m at 29, will be at 28 tomorrow) so now if any of the companies I buy from come up with something unexpectedly I will allow myself to order. Preferably though, I’d like to get below 25 teas before buying anymore, but we shall see! Temptation always arises at the most inconvenient times ;)

Sil

go you! that’s great! i’m working my way to 50 for year end heh

Kristal

Is that when you will allow yourself to start purchasing more or is there a different number for that? haha ;)

Sil

lol different number…. really just trying to hold off as long as i can, or buy 2-3 things as i replace others…ie. i may pick up some fruit herbals for summer but only if i get to my monthly sipdown goal and can’t buy more than would get me back up to my goal for the month. lol lots of “rules” to keep mysel honest. mostly though, just trying to hold off until i’m in chicago in May

Kristal

Haha I totally hear you. I feel myself making similar rules too, especially considering I really want 95% of my collection to be less than 6 months old to keep my interest and so they don’t go stale, etc. What’s especially difficult now is that I’ve been ordering less from DAVID’s TEA and they are the one place I buy from which will will sell you very small amounts of tea to try out (there are a few sampler packs from IHOT (local tea shop, new fav place to get tea from), but I’m now at the point where I’ve tried all the sampler packs I’m interested in) and I don’t want to commit to 50+ grams of tea, especially when I have similar blends at home which I should really use up first.

For the time being, I just organize my wish list on steepster and resist temptation, lol.

Sil

even with a cupboard that was in the 100’s i was doing well keeping a 6 month cupboard….and then i brought 3.5kg home from paris lol

Kristal

haha that’ll do it! I think you’re the one who inspired me to try and keep my cupboard “young” ;)

long story short? Life is about to get crazy again (though when isn’t it, it seems?) We’ve been on the waitlist for a puppy and ours was born on saturday, so in 8 weeks we’ll have a wedding to wrap up (best friend getting married) and a new addition to our family. Down side? holy crap there’s a lot of work to do outside of “wor” between here and there haha. this was one of my teas from today because somehow i went a whole weekend without drinking tea!!!!! but there was wine drinking and puppy visiting to be had heh

almost out of this tea and that makes me sad. I really need a restock on verdant but i need to get through more of my other teas first.

R.F. Hill

Great tea! Didn’t last long in my house!

Sil

i’ve ordered it multiple years. last falls harvest was delicious

R.F. Hill

Oh my, yes!

Kristal

I think I tried a Verdant tea during a tea swap once, but it was a little old if my memory serves me correctly. One day I want to order some greens from there and see what it’s all about :)

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.
