Another generous sample from Angel This one isn’t up my alley but i can appreciate that those who like green oolongs might find this one particularly nice. slightly sweet, little vegetal but not overwhelmingly so. Thanks for the sample angel!

Another one from this morning. So much to do before the end of the year, and not just in tea drinking land! I’m backing up my boss this week, have major projects to close out and i need to get in to see my eye dr, dentist, rmt, banker before dec 31 while also trying to find 2 days to take off so i’m only carrying over 3wks hahahahaha. Finding the time off shouldn’t be that difficult but i can’t take time off this week and next week i already have mon and tues off because of the bank holidays. we’re also trying to get up to ottawa to see my parents for a couple days…and i really just want to play some board games but everyone is working!

anyone wanna come to my place for some gaming? :)

I’m thinking i was sent a different tea than what’s on the label of this sample from angel. Instead of a single ball in my package there were small balls – similar to the dragon black pearls. I’m going to assume that this is NOT jasmine dragon ball black tea since i don’t get any jasmine in the scent nor is it visible. No rating on this one since i don’t think it’s the right tea heh BUT thank you for the sample Angel. Whatever this is, it’s enjoyable to drink this morning :)

Another one from this morning. It’s taking a lot to get organised again after last week – i was stuck in hell and my other half had no time to do anything around the house. Today he’s also off for the day at a fatbike race…so that means juggling a dog who missed me, loves the snow and just wants to play…while trying to get the house picked up again haha. I needed this. I also need my damn order to get here – it’s ALMOST a month out, and i’m almost done the 100g of this i had left. good thing there’s 250g on it’s way :)

Final Count: 68

Just got back from the work trip from hell…spent a week without tea. Finished this one off this morning as i was in desperate need of a good cup! Happy to be back with my tea but not too convinced i’ll manage my sipdown goal for the year.

sipdown! pulled the last of this one out to have today since there won’t be a whole lot of time in december to drink down my stash :(

People seem to be in the mood for smoky teas these days. Must be the bitter cold. This is one of the smoky Lapsang Souchongs, right?

Sil

nope this one isn’t smokey :)

Evol Ving Ness

Not smokey. Hmm. There should be some sort of marker to indicate when a Lapsang Souchong is not smokey. Or maybe I need to do a bit of reading up on this tea to get more of a handle on things.

having a cup of this today – the flavouring is subsiding, but i’m ok with that since i also happen to ADORE the base tea in this one. So it’s really win win for me haha

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.
