noms. go go relaxing saturday morning i hope/think? Trying to organise my cupboard a little to see where i’m at with teas. Contemplating indulging in another YS order just to keep up my stock of LB. ha! Also trying to see if i can somehow manage to get down to 65 teas this month…which would get me back on track for my # goal this year. I’m already doing super well on my weight goal. Trying to read a little today too…have missed curling up with a good book so i’ve been trying to take abreak from screen distractions and get back to reading. Love the fall weather, seeing the sun hit the trees with the leaves changing colours…. so nice.


All great goals! :)

One from Nicole that i’ve had a couple times now. I enjoyed having it, but it’s a little too close to an oolong/darjeeling taste for me to really get behind it. The few cups i had were a pleasant trip down something i wouldn’t normally pick up for myself which was lovely.

drank Pumpkin Cheesecake by DAVIDsTEA

Bought a small sample of this one the other day to see how i feel about it. Had it as a latte after seeing some of the reviews from this year’s batch. It wasn’t terribad…but it was still super sweet AND didn’t really taste like pumpkin or cheesecake – which is sort of the point of having flavoured teas…that they taste like what they say they are trying to be.

Final Count: 77

i still dunno how i feel about this tea. It’s not bad, but it’s not ZOMG YES! it’s just kinda there…which is likely why i’ve struggled to drink it down. I may need to try this out gonfu style to see what else i can make of it.

noms. variaTEA gave me a little more of this a while back and i’ve been drinking it here and there. I really do love this chocolate tea…it’s got that rich, dark chocolate taste. I’ll miss this one, but i know if i get desperate, Holt’s usually has it at christmas haha


Damn, I’ve yet to see it at Holt’s here.


When do you normally see them at the earliest? Maybe I keep going there too late. Whenever I’ve gone over the past few years, I’ve only seen the boxes of sachets of simpler blends like English Breakfast. Maybe saw a tin of Chandernagor once. Or maybe my location just sucks haha.


i think they start putting that stuff out in November. I’ll post in heffalumps when i see the stuff here, since it’s literally across the street from my work place (or under the street technically..)


Awesomesauce. Thanks, Sil!

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.
