terri sent this one my way and i thought i’d try that out today. I have to say i’m not getting anything very nuanced here. Gonfu with this one and it’s just sort of like an every day black tea for me. no hints of lychee or fruit…just a smooth, lighter sort of tea. oh well, happy to try new things!

drank Keemun Imperial Black Tea by Teavivre

This is a sample from Angel who is always super generous with her samples. I haven’t had this keemun before so it was great to try it out. this has no smoke and is a light brew. there’s some astringency here but it’s still a good cup of tea. I prefer the keemun snail aromatic but this was an interesting experience.

started the day out with this one. Trying to take it easy today because i’m feeling a little better and that usually means i wear myself out :) I’ve got ambitious goals for this month in the world of tea drinking so i’m getting started on things this weekend! Especially since i’m losing a week while i’m in chicago this month :) Happy december everyone!

drank Pumpkin Ginger Spice by Traveling Tea

pulled this one out last night. Trying to get back in to the habit of drinking some herbals in the evening. If nothing else it’s a way to relax before bed. I still really enjoy this one, but what i have will probably be enough to get me through until next year’s cold weather :) i love the real chunks of pumpkin and the fact that this has got ginger. it’s not that artifiicial “pumpkin spice” tea we often find at this time of year.

noms another delicious tea from the past few days. I didn’t make my sipdown goal for November, but that’s to be expected since we had a get together and the girls left me with a number of teas to try. I am still better than i thought i’d be for weight as well, so not complaining. I just have to hope that when i get my small orders from Black friday that it doesn’t set me up with too much weight so i can work towards meeting both my year end goals. I started in january with 148 teas and 7900g of which I had 1840g of puerh…end of november and i’m at 75 teas – roughly 3920g..probably the same amount of puerh lol.

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.
