had a go at this one this morning. I’m struggling to get ready to leave the house, mostly because i don’t want to. So i pulled this one out of the cupboard, hoping it would have enough bite to it, to get me going. Turns out, this is a decent black, with a little brightness to it…not sure how else to describe it. I can see this turning bitter fairly easily if over steeped. It was exactly what i needed to get going this morning, but in the grand scheme of things, i prefer other teas from stacy :)

oh dexter… you always spoil me. this is a lovely tea from Norbu and one i greatly enjoyed, though for the life of me, i can’t recall well enough to write a proper note. It was one of the teas that i had yesterday before running off to do my overnight and it was a great start to the evening. But man, it feels like i drank this a billion years ago. I’d be inclined to pick some of this one up again as it really was great.

Another from the wee small hours of the morning. I am officially exausted. 2 hour nap and now i’m up again because i have a friend obligation that i have to attend of my friends might just disown me. It’s the wedding/party celebration my friends are having here in toronto for those folks that didn’t make their wedding out at cape breton. My other half and i just could make it out there so we have to make sure we’re there for this. He’s already with them as he’s helping with the costco factor but i needed at least a little sleep. No idea how i’m going to get through today, since it’s head down there, hang out…then back home to pack for tomorrow’s trip and get organised with work for the morning…possibly more testing this evening for another deployment…and then i need sleep so that i can be functional with the vendor tomorrow night where we need to socialise. blech.

thankfully this tea is deliciously creamy and tasty, and managed to get me through the last bit of this morning. :)

another from last night – this + creme brulee always makes me happy. I’ll be sad when this is all gone but i’ve got quite a bit left for now :)

This was also one of my teas last night for my overnight. It was a good start to the evening, though i wish i’d been able to bring more than just the 3 teas i brought with me heh must always go for familiarity on release evenings.

Terri HarpLady

There is nothing like familiar teas for comfort, especially in times of uncertainty & stress

Sil

Terri HarpLady

I’ll hook you up :)

this was my comfort tea last night. Added a little cacao to it and it was the best time ever for an overnight which went way too long.

backlog from yesterday – thanks again to dexter for letting me try this one. On the whole, this wasn’t a bad cup of tea, but i’m glad that this is one that i don’t feel the need to order from WP. There was a bitterness there that i didn’t love. still not a bad cup..just not one i need to keep around.

Final Count yesterday: 114

catching up from yesterday – i had this one as a cold brew and while it is for sure strawberry – i think i’ll actually enjoy this one even more as a hot brew. :)

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.
