sipdown! but this will be back in my cupboard in future…oh yes. Not as much tea drinking today as i am pooped from the walking we did today. I was breaking in new shoes as well in prep for our treking about vancouver so i’m ready for bed. this might be one of my favourite oolongs….which is saying a lot since oolongs are oo-wrong!

this was my out and about tea today. Seriously, best weekend in a long time. My other half was off so we slept in, had breakfast together and then went for a 5 hours walk. Just out enjoying the sun, the day, spending time together being “out.” I got to buy some pants for walking/being active AND we may have found a writing desk that we can use in the house so that i’m not at the dining room table when i work from home with cords all over the place. We went out for lunch, stopped at the liquor station and had a grand ol’ day. And this was my tea for doing it with. :)

Dexter

Awesome tea for an awesome day!!! :))

Cavocorax

another tea from dexter that i had waaaay earlier in the day. It was quite tasty, though i remember wishing the nutty taste was just a little stronger. Overall though, another nice tea from bluebird!

drank Lemon Spice by Acquired Taste Tea Co.

this is one of the teas that missB sent my way. It smells quite lovely with the lemon and the addded spice. Drinking it up though, was a different sort of experience. There wasn’t as much lemon as i figured there might be and the spice left a weird taste in my mouth. I’m cold brewing the rest of my sample to see if that makes a difference in the taste:)

drank 1980s Liu Bao Guangxi by Tealux

puerh from this morning courtesy of dexter not a lot to say about this one beyond it’s really earthy and not quite the sort of puerh I love. it was tasty, but the earthiness was a little overwhelming in the initial steeps. It mellows out!

drank Random Steepings by Various Artists

So my cupboard…back up to 163, though i’ve managed at least a couple sipdowns tonight. Here’s hoping i can get to 150 this weekend at the least. I suppose i MIGHT be able to hit my sipdown goal but only if i don’t go crazy in vancouver AND i get through at least 15 this weekend. otherwise, not going to happen lol. 4 more teas on their way that will show up on monday AND i’m working on a couple swaps at the moment. I just can’t help myself.

This tea is one that MissB didn’t add to steepster and since i’m only drinking a cup (sil sized) of it, i’m going to be lazy.

Rooibos Tangerine – The tea Place.

seriously? so. good. as in, smells AMAZING and tastes delicious! This would be one i could stock in my cupboard a bunch and not get bored of it…because it IS tangerine, not orange and the rooibos isn’t that woodsy weirdo taste i don’t like in a rooibos :) thanks missb! (84!)

Final count: 161

OMGsrsly

Pfft. 162. I’m almost at 300, and I am drinking 3+ Sil-sized mugs per day. Slosh, slosh, slosh.

Courtney

I should really count all the samples I have around here. Though it won’t be near to 162 (I hope), but definitely not 300 haha!

Terri HarpLady

That sounds tasty!

drank Toffee Chocolate Hazelnut by Utopia Tea
6170 tasting notes

dexter sent me this one in the quest to explode my cupboard a little lol I believe this one was on my wishlist, or if it wasn’t, would have been something i was interested in trying. However, upon brewing this up, the chocolate taste makes me not so very happy. There’s something ‘off’ about this one that makes me not want to finish the cup, above and beyond, the filmy weird things happening in my tea. I can see the potential in this one but the chocolate taste here just isn’t for me. BUT as always, love knocking things off my list of “all the teas!”

Dexter

Shrug – win some lose some – dump it and move on. :))

Sil

drink it…and move on :P

Amariel

Well, the name sounds good…

oh my poor cupboard. I tried to make it go on a diet and now it’s fighting back…. 125 was almost in my grasp…and this it was pulled away. So i’m giving up for April…but in May, i’ll be back with a vengenance lol for now, the sample sipdowns continue! this is neither, but it is one of my oldest teas and a delicious, delicious friday tea!

Dexter

Mmmmmmmmmmmm I was drinking this at work today – it’s a really good one. :))
(I don’t think it’s your cupboards fault that it is exploding…..)

Sil

yes! it’s not MY fault! i’m doing wht i can….drinking stuff..

Dexter

LOL maybe it’s partly MY fault – and all the other tea buddies that send you stuff…

Sil

Terri HarpLady

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.
