I’ve had this a few time over the past couple of days but haven’t had time to log things. Since it’s my last cup, i figured i should at least get something in here :) On the whole, i’ve rather enjoyed this one – preferring it to the marangi estate assam that i also picked up from norbu. Mostly, i’m just left wanting to try a whole lot more teas from norbu :) thanks again NoFarS for introducing me to them!

Nicole

Do you have any of the Pudina Chai or the Jungpana Imperial Gold? If not and you want to try them, PM me and I’d be happy to share some. I have TONS of the Jungpana… :)

TeaBrat

Norbu has some good stuff!

Sil

Nicole….. I will try to remember to do that, I don’t think I’ve tried either but want to check and iPad is not fear for doing that..

NofarS

:) You are very welcome! I love being an enabler :)

sample sipdown! still doing well with 1 sipdown a day this week. I enjoyed my few cups of this, but i’m good with just that. good, but not good enough to pick up again :)

Final Count: 96

Cameron B.

Wow, 96?! That’s fantastic! I’m jealous, ha ha.

Sil

it’s been a looooong journe down from 300+

Dexter

WOW!! Great Job!!! Taking inspiration….

Cameron B.

I’m at 131 and I’ve only been on here for two months. Oops? >>

Sil

just remember dex… it’s a marathon…i was up and down and up and down…

Sil

cameron – not oops…typical hahahaha i totally did the same thing… then it was omg! 100+ teas! then… whaaat! 200+ ! then holy mother crap gd it…345+ too much! and so i started my walk back down the hill lol

Cameron B.

Well I don’t have any orders planned at the moment, and most of my stuff is samples, so I should be able to get the number down fairly quickly. :)

Lynxiebrat

How long has it taking you to get to 96? Me, I think it would take a really long time…like about a year or so.

drank Cherry Snowcone by DAVIDsTEA

soooo i CAN go through 50g of this in a week if i cold brew it lol. Looks like it might be worth me restocking this on the weekend since the summer will likely extend in to sept/oct at the rate it’s going to far. and if not, well there’s always spring! ):

drank Red Queen Cupcake by Butiki Teas
4942 tasting notes

i had this today…and added a little sugar. hells yes. even better than without and i didn’t add a lot because i don’t like adding things to my tea. this? soo good. I may need more sooner rather than later.

Cavocorax

Oooooh! Mine just shipped today. I can’t wait! (Also I grabbed 2 Friends JUST because of you)

Sil

haha i hope you like it. (two friends i mean..not worried about red queen)

Cavocorax

It’s PTA so how could I not? :O

i think i like this one a little more than the verdant version, but i need to do a taste test since my ratings certainly don’t reflect that. but i had this one again today and it was just a bit more smokey and seemed a bit more tasty than the verdant version from the other day. maybe i can squeeze in a comparison this weekend….

drank Laoshan Black by Verdant Tea

this is out of stock again. I facebooked verdant to see if they know when it’s coming back…because even though i have 4oz of it…i’m in panic mode again that i’ll run out…because that was the worst. THE WORST :)

Cameron B.

WTF, the Genmaicha is out of stock too. I’ve been checking it religiously and it’s never even been low stock. Now it’s just gone…

Sil

yup. my FB asks about that one too… and the vanilla citrus spice. but i have noticed that verdant is terribad at answering wall posts – i’ve had them post their own stuff the same day i post stuff, and not get an answer lol. i’m just too swamped to send an email heh

Cameron B.

I wasn’t rushing my order because I thought there was plenty left… :’(

Sil

boooooooooooooo :(

Cameron B.

Oh well, I have way too much tea right now anyway. I guess I’ll get some next year? Or whenever they have more? I’m sorry about your Laoshan Black. :(

caile

I agree that’s the worst! ;) I am really liking the most recent batch too.

Sil

cameron – it should be back way sooner than next year :)
caile – yeah…i mean, i’m not going to run out right away…but now i feel like hoarding it haha

caile

haha, i know! I feel like I should start hoarding mine…I just bought 3 ounces in my last order but wish I had got more.

Sil

i try to order 3-4 oz at a time…because if i ever need to bump up another order to get free shipping, then i can always add more LB lol

yyz

They had 6 lb is LB yesterday, perhaps someone panic buyed or it was sold to one of their wholesale clients.

Lynxiebrat

I’m hoping that Eight Treasures Yabao will come back. I would like the Genmaicha though if I had to choose, lol it would be Eight Treasures hands down.

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.
