noms another delicious tea from the past few days. I didn’t make my sipdown goal for November, but that’s to be expected since we had a get together and the girls left me with a number of teas to try. I am still better than i thought i’d be for weight as well, so not complaining. I just have to hope that when i get my small orders from Black friday that it doesn’t set me up with too much weight so i can work towards meeting both my year end goals. I started in january with 148 teas and 7900g of which I had 1840g of puerh…end of november and i’m at 75 teas – roughly 3920g..probably the same amount of puerh lol.

i can’t keep my life straight anymore. Working from home for the past 3 days because a) my husband is sick and has slept for 2.5 days straight and someone needed to take care of the puppy and b) because i’m sick and while i’m not resting, at least i’m not having to get dressed and make the trek in to work. Add to that some re-org changes that are giving me an opportunity to create my own job role (if i can do it in 2 days while sick) AND a massive delivery going in next weekend followed by supporting teams in chicago for a week after the deployment…oh and throw in our holiday party and other such seasonal festivities and you have yourself a crazy life! I’ve been drinking tea but just too busy to much but tread water. All that aside, i’m not complaining…just explaining. I love the challenges and honestly, life’s too short to complain. (though sometimes it’s hard not to!) haha overall things are good…just crazy busy! :)

this was my compromise for not going out to get coffee today as it was just too miserable outside for me to want to leave. thanks for the share dexter!

Another tea from dexter. this on was a little strong for me this morning so i’m going to have to play with it a bit.

Dexter

I actually bought this from Amsterdam Tea locally, and they aren’t advertising it as from Justea but I think that’s what it is….

Sil

haha i had it under amsterdam tea..but then saw your note about justea so changed it up

I guess i forgot to make a note on this one the last few times i had it. This is another from dexter and is a pretty decent yunnan black. It’s malty, strong and smooth. pretty tasty!

Dexter

I find it interesting that you did better with the Red Blossom Teas than the ones from Imperial Tea Court. :)

Sil

yeah they’re all tasty though to be fair… :) i apparently like yunnan blacks :)

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.
