another backlog from yesterday – ended my day with a cup of this, enjoyed with friends that came to visit (even with the house still in shambles). Best time ever coming home to friends and their little one. Love baby time before they get old and want nothing to do with you haha.

another backlog from yesterday, this one courtesy of VariaTEA I’m a little worried that i’ll get my teas from swaps mixed up so apologies if i miscredit someone with a tea they gave me. I’m trying to get them all separate since the house is a complete mess but who knows how well that will work. It was lovely to have this back in the house again. it’s one of the few teas from ATR that i really enjoy enough to want to purchase but they are a pain to get to canada. thanks for putting this back in my cupboard!

VariaTEA

You’re welcome. NayLynn got 3-4 oz for me so I was more than happy to share as I haven’t been able to get to my cupboard teas lately, what with all the swaps, and I would hate for all that tea to go stale.

Cavocorax

Ha! We both had this yesterday! It’s so good. I think I got mine from VariaTEA too! highfives

Sil

both of you…all your tea is packed up and ready for pick up (beyond anything you want to “shop” for at my place)…anytime is fine by me – my tea is one of the few things really organised in the house right now lol

VariaTEA

Haha. I see you had your priorities straight. Tea first, everything else later. When I moved home, I insisted my box of tea go in the van with me as opposed to the moving truck and it was the first thing I unpacked.

OMGsrsly

Yay for having at least one thing organized! :)

Sil

Tea was organized day one except that I still had swaps that came in, in their own boxes…now it’s all unpacked and sorted etc….and I split up your teas etc… Today I packaged stuff to go out as well…. I’m stupidly sick so I’m not very productive but that made me feel good.

backlog from yesterday. Today is operation sipdown with a side of getting the house more organised and throwing things out that i didn’t get to when we moved. I’m also supposed to have board game night tonight and a bridal shower for a friend tomorrow. I pretty much want nothing to do with any of that lol. I just want to sit on the balcony, drink tea, read and watch the sun sigh still enjoying this one, though not upset that i’m almost through the 100g. In the grand scheme of things, there seems to be only a few teas that i ever really want 100g of in the house, and even then i’d rather have small sizes and order more often heh

Anna

In complete agreement regarding amounts. Sadly, 100 g is standard for so many tea vendors. It’s meh.

Sil

yeah :( which works if you have friends to split teas with!

Anna

FRENS.

final tea for tonight…. i have some things i need to go mess with so going to get to that before it’s later than i expect it to be. I am sad to see this one go, i’ll need to place an order with WP someday soonish… sadly, with my exploded cupboard…i’m not sure when that will be :( really not likely to get to 100 now by July 1.

Final Count: 239

Cavocorax

Yeah… poor ‘sploded cupboards. I’d like to get more WP teas too. I’m happy 221Tea sent me so many to try!

evening tea with dinner! I shared this one with variatea and cavocorax and i’m glad i did. 50g would have been too much for me, while a 3 way split is perfect. I am enjoying the flavours in this one – it’s rightly hawaii like without that weird taste a lot of “troical” blacks seem to have. That being said, the few cups i have will be enough to satisfy my curiosity :)

(also anna, if you’re out there, i totally brewed melon oolong the other day according to the instructions…it was hard…)

i had this one earlier (today! almost caught up!) and it was downright yummy as far as smokey teas go. this is a different sort of smokey tea than the ones i’m used too, with a bit of something else coming out to play with this one. it’s also not a subtle tea (courtney stay away!). it’s smokey, and slightly sweet…with a bit of a punch to it. looking forward to trying it out with maple syrup :)

soooo i think i have more of this coming my way via 221….this sample though was from cavocorax and let me tell you..NOT.A.FAN. those who know me, know that i like a little smoke in my tea. This for sure has this, but outside of that, this was like a soapy weird gross smokey tea. There was no graham taste..or marshmallow or chocolate…just smoke that was REALLY nice…followed by soap. blech. if 221 does send me more, i’m hoping that it will be a bit tastier, or that i can coax a little more out of it…

TheTeaFairy

Lol, I hate smoke, and somehow, I really like it :-) lol, I was at a bonfire the night I drank it, maybe I was just swallowing real smoke along with it!

Sil

i love it in teas and when camping… as long as it’s coming from a fire and not cigarettes lol

i tried the last of this one as a cold brew this week as well….it’s a bit less woodsy for me, but still nothing to write home about. However, really happy to try another pear tea offering, so thank you a bunch variatea

Preparation

VariaTEA

That’s so weird because I tasted rooibos more in the cold brew.

Roswell Strange

How long did you each cold brew for?

VariaTEA

I have no idea tbh.

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.
