another tea from yesterday and a great counteract to the other two teas i had with me at work. I probably should have ordered more than 50g of this, but i wasn’t sure how quicly i’d get through 50g as i have a ton of teas in my cupboard. Apparently the closer i get to 100 the more i start to feel like i have no teas to choose from lol. I love the vanilla/caramel in this one. It’s just so smooth and creamy and makes me happy. So glad i tried this again and loved it :)

Final Count yesterday: still 139. :)

Another cup from yesterday – I realised that in my effort to sipdown a number of my teas, there are a bunch that i haven’t had in a while. So the past couple of days i’ve been trying to pull out some of my other favourites as a reward for getting my cupboard down. I’ll have a few sipdowns in the next few days but mostly, i’m drinking what i want for the first week of april just to explore and try a few of the teas i haven’t had before. I have had this one before – it’s the reason i ordered another bag of it. This is a juicy, sweet taiwanese assam. It’s not bold of malty or in your face. Similar to stacy’s taiwanese assam but different – there is room for both in my cupboard. :)

2 more delicious cups of this left. thankfully this resteeps well if my other half doesn’t discard the tea leaves accidentally :( backlog from yesterday as it was one hell of an insane day, followed by ppl at my house and then i pretty much wasn’t feeling well so i went to bed right after they left. I love the deliciousness of this tea. I have half a mind to take this out of my cupboard and hide the last two cups somewhere i won’t find them for like a year :)

drank Caramel by TeaGschwendner
6059 tasting notes

I’m pretty sure i need to try this tommorrow on it’s own. I think this one could rival or one up the caramel toffee from MF that i love. Mixed with “cream” from Tea G it’s an increadibly decadent delight. This was my reward for making my March goal :) New tea! there will be a few more new teas in the near future i’m sure just to trade off the sipdown work i did and treat myself to some of the unopened teas i have. Honestly this one? It’s just a buttery creamy mess of delicious. I am a fan of the black base that Tea G uses….so i’m also looking forward to trying the straight black that i picked up. I’ll write more when i get a chance to try this on it’s own..but really..mixed with “cream?” SOOOO good… (said in a teen girl squad voice….for those that know..)

drank Cream by TeaGschwendner
6059 tasting notes

Another tea from the morning rotation. I’ve had this one before, but today i opted to mix it with the caramel tea i picked up from Tea G as well. They were selling a decaf version of caramel cream when i dropped by the store, but really? who wants that :) So instead i picked up both teas so that i could blend them together as well as drink them on their own. I still love “cream” it’s light enough to make me feel like it’s a flavoured tea while not a tea that overpowers the base. I’m not sure i’d get this again…though on second though this would mix really nicely with some of the teas from out west that have been sent my way from bayswater or uh…the other company that i can’t think of at this particular moment in time… delicious creamy additions…

the hairs…they are chopped. snick snick. ALL GONE! well ok now all gone but there was about 10 inches removed. bwahahah but it’s still chin length so yeah. now to figure out what to do with is after i get through the beloved “after hair cut day” where your hair still looks good from the cut haha. Morning tea, from morning. Just revisiting a few favourites before i get back to sipping up old teas and samples. It helps that this falls into the older category as well :)

Sami Kelsh

Yay haircuts! I got mine done last month for the first time in about a year, and came out of the salon with this really sleek looking ‘do… that lasted about 2 days until I washed it and couldn’t be bothered to blow dry it straight :p

Sil

yeah haha i am so not the type to blow dry and style. wash n go is more my thing

yyz

So with you Sil, especially since I’ve had jobs with 2:30am wakeup calls.

Anna

YOUR HAIRS. MY HAIRS HAS QUESTIONS.

Sil

hahahaha oh Anna…

Cavocorax

Wash n go!!!! YES!!!
Honestly, I wouldn’t know what to do with my hair even if I tried. Half the time I forget to brush it. If I’m feeling fancy I’ll add mousse and hope that keeps it from frizzing out, and if I get too annoyed I’ll ask Joe to chop it down.

YAY HAIR!

OMGsrsly

Cavo, you are so lucky. I have to style or it’s a right mess. Cowlicks everywhere. Even today I tried, but the cowlicks won.

So this brings me to 140. In March. So there. neener neener lol I’ve been sipping on this since i got home, trying to figure out what i need to do to get my other half to get his darn tax info to me so that i can file for him….what needs to be done for work tomorrow and what the heck i want to do with my hair tomorrow. CHOP CHOP CHOP!

I’ve been sick of peach teas lately..but this one isn’t overly cloyingly peach because the base comes through a bit more. Also, i think the caramel in this one helps…or at least i think that’s caramel. It’s not in your face either. mostly…just a good cup tonight for what i was puttering around with haha

VariaTEA

175 :(. Think I can drink 35 teas in the next 4.5 hrs?

Sil

Hey 175 is good! I’m actually going to try and get to 120/125 in April so that May can be 115/110 and by end of June I’ll be at 100. However I’m planning like 5 orders at the moment hahaha

VariaTEA

At the beginning of March, I was at 90. I will just have to work on getting through lots of teas in April so once again we can be equal :P. Easier said then done though as I have a few swaps on the way. However, then I move home and can hide from all the tea until I get my cupboard under control.

Sil

i have a few swaps incoming as well..but i just look at that as decreasing cupboard volume haha even if numbers go up, easier to get through swap sizes and it helps decrease other teas you might have more of :)

VariaTEA

Tis true. So wise you are.

Cavocorax

Are you just drinking those Shmiracles-sized samples as one giant cup? :O

Sil

Just normal sized sil mug….shmiracles sent me roughly enough for 3 normal ppl cups….so 2makes one of mine and the. Last little little cup goes to Terri :)

Dinosara

I’ve made my peace with ~120 that are in my cupboard now, especially since almost none of them are close to sipdowns! I suppose I will have more samples soon, though. :)

Sil

120 isn’t so bad!

drank Ginger & Lemon Myrtle by Lupicia
6059 tasting notes

Sipdown on this one as well, with the last cup going to kittenna I tried this one as a cold brew and it’s also enjoyable. I did find that this one tastes almost exactly the same hot brewed, as cold steeped. So that makes it a nice one to drink year round in terms of hot summer days needing something refreshing :) woot woot!

Preparation
Iced 8 min or more

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.
