Another one of my teas from today…which while it doesn’t contribute to my sipdowns, is still a decent cup of tea. But i like boulder breakfast better haha

Sipdown! Had the last of this tonight, and i have to say, if it weren’t for the smell which gets in my nose and makes me want to sneeze…i would love this quite a bit lol.

drank Crème Brulee by Bayswater Tea Co.

I had this this morning as my flavoured tea. After drinking it today, i think i’ll have to set aside the last of it to have at home. My initial impressions of this one are that it’s too sweet for me. I think this might far prety well as a latte for me, so maybe i’ll try that. Especially since the flavouring is quite nice in this one

Totally shared this with a friend at work today who needed a pick me up. It made my day because she got to drink this up and LOOOOOVED it (she’s a fan of EG’s and grapefruit) and i got one step closer to being back under terri’s cupboard count lol

Sipdown! Let’s not talk about how many teas i have yet to add TO my cupboard from this weekend…i’ll worry about that tomorrow maybe. Or maybe i’ll just leave this batch out and just add the count without having the teas IN my cupboard…since they’ll be gone soon…i hope. ugh.

This was actually a really nice cup of tea today. Sad to see that it’s a limited edition or seasonal tea as i’d actually consider having this one around for those fall nights i want a caffeine free option :(

(…and cavo…since i know you’re out there lurking and hoping…even with Kittenna’s teas that aren’t in my cupboard i’m only at 278…i picked up 20 teas from her but i AM the sipdown master so ha!)

Lariel

It is seasonal, and I saw it in stores again.

Cavocorax

Hahah. - Good job!
Also, I like the idea of me lurking out there, ready to tease at a moment’s notice.

Terri HarpLady

So for now, you actually have more teas than me!

Sil

Thanks lariel…wonder if we have it up here….

Sil

Terri…what’s your number? I can beat it tonight..just give me a day haha

Terri HarpLady

LOL! I’m starting the day at 269, can you believe THAT? LOL!
I haven’t been that low since…uh…June! :D

Cavocorax

Great job Terri!
How much of that was transferred from you to Sil? :P

Terri HarpLady

I’ll never tell…shhhhh…

Sil

cavo… at least 20 samples from nofars….

Terri HarpLady

Yeah, but I did drink half of each sample before I sent it, so those sipdowns were legit! :)

Sil

Yeah…my cupboard disagrees lol

Sil

ok….269 you say…. ponders

Terri HarpLady

are you there yet?
Maybe we should have a sipdown duel tomorrow? LOL

Terri HarpLady

We’d have to start with the exact same number of teas to do it…

Sil

i’m at 266? i think… need to double check haha

Terri HarpLady

I didn’t have any sipdowns today, since I spent the day drinking multiple steeping-type teas. However, I packed a few boxes for friends, & one of them included the last of a couple of my teas, so I may be at 266 too. I’ll check too. ;)

Terri HarpLady

I just added mine up, & I’m at 269.

Terri HarpLady

oops, guess what? Since I don’t have the teas from our TeaVivre order yet, I took them off my list, & now I have 266 also!! WooHoo! So we are both starting the day at 266!
Sipdown Duel! It’s on!

Sil

haha i’m actually at 270 after my first sipdown today lol.

Terri HarpLady

I thought you were at 266?
dammit woman, I’m trying to be twinsies with you! LOL

Terri HarpLady

OK….I’m doing one sipdown now. That will put me at 265.
If you get it down to 265 today then we can have a sipdown Duel tomorrow, or the day of your choosing :)

Sil

haha ok. I’ll see what i can do tonight. I know i have LOTS of little samples i can probably drink tonight to get to 265. heh

Terri HarpLady

Oops….make that 264, LOL, I just polished off another tea…accidentally of course…

Cavocorax

Hahaha. You guys are great. <3

Sil

suuuure….“acceidentally” mm hmmm

go go apple theme for today! Knocking the rating down a little on this one because it feels like a really sweet herbal to me. I often forget that this has actual tea in it. Still a relatively decent enough cup of tea..but more so if you pretend it doesn’t have a black base…which i can’t taste at all. :)

However, thank you omgsrsly for giving me the chance to try a few of Steam’s teas…to help me get a better feel for them :)

drank White Christmas by 52teas
4681 tasting notes

someday i WILL get to the bottom of this package. I don’t hate it per say but i always feel like it should be something more. I’m hoping to have this finished by the time christmas rolls around since i’ve had this one for a bit…though not SUPER long in the grand scheme of some people’s cupboards haha

Amariel

I haven’t tried any of mine, and I got a large amount from the swap. Hoping I like it even a little.

drank Chocolate Orange by Bayswater Tea Co.
4681 tasting notes

Yeah i like this one…as long as you don’t over steep it. Unlike other rooibos teas that i usually brew for a billion minutes, better off treating this one as not really a rooibos. It does better for me at about 3-4 minutes.

Preparation
3 min, 45 sec

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.
