this tea comes to me via the BBB Box and specifically from tastybrew. let me tell you, since having this earlier, i’ve been kicking myself for not having it sooner. this tea is a smokey tea for sure. It’s not overly so, but i have been known on occasion to tolerate more smoke than your average person :) What i really like about this one is that there’s also a sweetness here that reminds me of honey, without being exactly like honey. I’m going to enjoy drinking this one while i’ve got it! thanks ladies! always a fun time trying new things :)

Another tea from MissB oh to be involved in all the crazy things she is! :) Miss you!

This one is an interesting tea. I wasn’t quite sure what i was smelling when i brewed it, but the first few sips of this were for sure apricot. the mint addition to this one is a really interesting take on a tea and one that i’m fond of. There’s something neat about sipping on a tea that smells like fruit and summer and then tastes more like winter heh. I am a fan :)

maaaan… stacy sent this my way as a sample in my birthday order and i’m so glad she did. I’d forgotten just how much i love this tea. I’ve had a couple steepings now since i’ve been up and it’s such a contrast to the sansia black that i’ve also been drinking. i love the woody, fruity taste to this one that goes along with the strength of the tea. YUM! so glad i got the chance to have this again and this time, i’m remembering to put it on my wishlist!

ooooh, so glad to hear it. I’m expecting some of this in the mail any day now and I can’t wait to try it. Glad I made the right choice in my order.

started the morning off Butiki style with a couple of great teas this morning, one of which was this one. I’ll probably also have this one again later this week because i’m enjoying it as part of my morning rotation. it’s not my all time favourite stacy tea but there’s something about it that’s just working for me today on these cooler, greyer mornings.

i have really enjoyed this tea while it’s been in my cupboard. I just wish i could find an alternative for those fall days when i want an apple cider like tea without too much fuss. Anyone out there have any suggestions of the loose leaf variety?

this was another from earlier in the day. I came home exausted and got distracted by my other half who opted not to cook – YAY PIZZA! and a few episodes of fringe. we’re finally on season 5 and it’s sad… 10 more episodes and it will all be over… no more walter :(

Suziqzer

I loved that series! I’ve even considered starting it over on Netflix .. I’m sure I’d glean things that I missed the first time through. Walter is just a great character…!

so a minor pet peeve of mine here to start and that is around companies and social media. If you’re going to be present on social media you need to actually BE present. that means, if a customer uses it to contact you, you’re prepared to answer. If someone tweets at you…you answer…someone pins you or whatever the hell that crap is… you respond. there are a number of companies out there that haven’t quite grasped that social media is where you need to be social. it’s not just a place for you to advertise.

sorry rant off…have just had a number of poos experiences all around with various companies – tea related and not, and it’s frustrating.

this tea + maple syrup = where it’s at. too bad it’s all sold out heh

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.
