first day back after overnights on the weekend = lots of tea AND some coffee… this was the first tea of the day to really kick things off. Thank god tomorrow is a bank holiday so the only thing that i HAVE to do is go look at wedding venues and then possible swing by my favourite vintage store and see what’s what. :)

yyz

Enjoy your day off. I miss the days when this was a Stat holiday (it hasn’t been since I was very young)!

last tea of the evening now that i can safely go to sleep without fear of waking up in the middle of the night. Sad part is, i have another overnight next weekend. blech. I managed to make my sipdown goal this weekend, but not my stretch goal. that’s ok though since there’s still a week or so left for me to drink teas in November, though again, i’m losing time thanks to work travel. I love this one when i get to steep it for like 10 mins…then it’s a delicious creamy cup of fantastic. haha yeah, i’ve been using that a lot lately but to be honest, tea is keeping me sane these days :) so there!

My body is screaming for sleep at the moment …. but i still need to finish laundry, finish issues with work and eat. then..sleep…yyaaaaay sleep. Since i need help with keeping my eyes open, i pulled this one out from terri still a fan! :) It’s nice to have delicious teas in the cupboard even if they aren’t sipdowns haha

having a cup of this as a break from the black teas from last night/today . still delicious and still a tasty cup of tea, though i think i generally prefer this one cold brewed to hot :)

NOMS! terriharplady let me steal one of these from her when i was in st louis and i figured that this would be the perfect morning tea since we’re still running through test cases and such. This way i can make a cup, boil the water, steep another cup and keep rotating. so i’ve been doing that this morning and it’s been great. this is absolutely tangerine and not orange. the flavouring isn’t overpowering the tea, though i’ve been experimenting by putting some of the rind in here and there to play with the level of flavour coming through. This is also a bold enough puerh for me, without being flat in terms of a base. On the whole, i’d likely pick some of these up in future for fun :) thanks terri!

I was impressed with this one as well :)

Last of the teas from Han Xiang Ecological Tea that Cameron B. sent my way. This tea is a sweet, malty sort of tea….but with that very clearly “yunnan” taste, which i guess is sweet potatoe? toe toe toe toe…poooooo taaaaay tooooooooeeee… obviously, i’m tired this morning.. lol

this is another tea from cameron B. this is a sweet yunnan tea with a little bit of fruitiness and some bready notes. It’s a little weak for my preferences, especially this late/early in an overnight but it’s not a bad tea. I prefer the others that cameron sent me from this company though :)

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.
