I think i’m a fan of this one. it’s malty but smokey…most of the yunnan’s that i’ve tried have only been malty. I like that this one isn’t a smokey keemun, but it’s similar…so of course in went the maple syrup. It’s not an out of this world sort of tea but i’d drink it again :)

So far I’ve enjoyed the American tea room teas I’ve tried (from you, in the BBBB).

Another sample from Dinosara. This one, i’ve been drinking all morning since it’s a gross, yucky, wet, windy day in toronto. I refused to go in to work ‘cause i didn’t want to go out in this weather. I have to remember to try this as a latte on Bonnie’s suggestion, because i think it would be pretty tasty. I have certainly enjoyed the steeps of this that i’ve been drinking. I for sure didn’t follow the instructions in terms of quantity of tea (3-4 tsp per 8oz!) but I’ve got enough to try that next time i make this. It’s not a blow your mind away puerh but it IS very smooth and delicious. Thanks so much for this one!

It seems people is more lazier in the cold day, so a warm cup of tea especially during the cold months is heavenly!

sipdown on this one because i’m going to give the last little bit of this over to a friend who will appreciate it more. I was a bit of a bonehead and didn’t register this morning that it was a green tea oopsy so i brewed it in too hot a water. Therefore, also not going to rate it but what i tasted behind the crap job i did with this seemed to be pretty tasty. I do enjoy lychee as a tea flavour from time to time heh thanks dinosara!

sipdown! (180) YAY! at least i feel like i accomplished something today in tea land. Beyond that i am super exausted today and was ready for bed about 5pm today. We just finished watching “Angels Take Manhattan” and now i’m sad. This tea though? makes me happy. Going on the re-order list for sure.

Amariel

Awww, it is sad. Bye bye Ponds. :(

Cavocorax

Oh. :( Yeah….
The good news? You’ve got some great episodes ahead of you! And the Ponds are/will be fine. I loved them, but was prepared for them to go – they couldn’t journey with the Doctor forever and I had that whole season to say goodbye…

Sil

not a whole season…half! :P I actually don’t mind that they’re gone but i really did like the dynamics of a non woman companion. Not sure how i feel about whats her face that i know if coming on board and i’m struggling to decide whether i blow through to be caught up by nov’s big bang or just avoid social media for a couple weeks after it goes live and savour all the remaining espisodes slowly..

Cavocorax

:P Yeah, only half. And I liked that they were a Companion Couple, and aside from a bit of misplaced flirtation at the beginning, no one was hitting on the Doctor.

Good luck trying to decide. I understand not wanting to feel like you HAVE to blitz it, but I did enjoy “what’s her face”. Do you think you could avoid social media that long?

OTOH, I totally understand waiting. When I “lost” 11 I stopped watching Doctor Who for several months. I guess I was in mourning and I didn’t want to meet Matt Smith and his goofy looking fez and bowtie. He wasn’t MY Doctor. :P But I ADORE him now, and am less reticent about moving on.

Sipdown! I’ve been struggling with tea lately so i decided today needed to be at least one sipdown. I actually have very much enjoyed this one though it always feels like there’s some sort of flavouring in it when i drink it. Sad to see the last of this go, but happy it might mean an order in the future lol

Cavocorax

Awww. If you’re struggling, it might be better to do the opposite? Back off? Don’t worry about sipdowns. Find THAT tea that will excite you.

Tea Sipper

Definitely.. sip your favorites!

guys…i drank a bit of tea. and stuff and at the same time it’s like 1/10th of what i usually drink and i just don’t want to write any sort of note and my teacups are being half drunk…

Soooo i’m still here, still drinking but quiet… i’m hoping it’s just the whole being back from vacation and i haven’t gotten back into my groove! ‘cause i need to! I’m still 32 teas away from my black friday goal. ugh.

Courtney

You can do it :) I have the same thing when I have to go back to ‘real life’ haha. Think of all the awesome sales!

Dexter

(Dex – don’t send Sil more tea until she is back to herself and has gotten down to her goal……)
Welcome back, you probably just need a few days to relax and to get back into your usual routine.

Terri HarpLady

I’m kind of in the same place. I’m still drinking tea, but haven’t really been logging very many of them, and I don’t really feel like I have anything to say. Plus it’s just hard to find time to sit at my computer. :)

Fuzzy_Peachkin

I’ve been in the same boat lately. I’ve been posting sporadically and haven’t gotten into the groove of logging everything I’ve been drinking.

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.
