sample sipdown! This was sent to me by the lovely gracebtlb as it’s one of her happy puerhs. I haven’t had a chance to try it yet so i was super happy to see this! I’ve been up since stupid o’clock (though just now catch up on my tea drinking notes) so i opted to have this one as a constant tea for the morning. I am a fan of multiple steepings so that i can just focus on work and keep drinking the same thing.

..of course the postmen totally interrupted this train of thought with THREE PACKAGES! long story short..i can get behind this puerh and have thoroughly enjoyed drinking this!

OMGsrsly

YAY more tea! :D

Dinosara

Haha package day! I got one of my Teavivre boxes today.

I need to work on some of my older tea bags so I pulled this one out of the cupboard this morning as well. I find that the strength of this one isn’t all that great so i usually double up on the tea bags. overall, not a bad brew but nothing i need to restock when in finally finish up!

Cavocorax

Twice the bags and it’s gone that much quicker! :D Win!

Sil

shhhhhhhhhhh don’t tell them my secret!

sipdown! Working from home today because i don’t want to get my colleagues sick. Finished off the last of this that i had with a few steeps to just enjoy the flavours in this brew on this COLD morning! Sad to see this go, though i do prefer laoshan chai a bit better heh

drink drink drink…so much liquid sloshing around in me. lol i love it. when i was little, camping with my parents, i used to drink a lot and then push my tummy in and out at night while we were trying to sleep to listen to the sloshing noises. used to drive my mother nuts :)

Last cup of tea tonight and it’s a good one…though funnily enough i’m drinking it along side the apple crisp i’m eating so it’s like a double dose of delicious apples :)

CelebriTEA

LOL….I can do that, but I I think it is a trick not everyone an do…lol…
When I was a kid doing that no one ever seemed to notice :-)

Terri HarpLady

I almost bought this tea the other day. I want an apple crisp! So jealous!

yay for more tea that isn’t black today (though i suppose i DID have a couple..) This is another one that i quite enjoy though i do think that there have been blends that were WAY more my taste from frank in the past. That being said this is still tasty and still something i enjoy. I’m glad i got to try a blend from him that was award winning :)

another tea from this afternoon…i wanted some form of “juicier” tea that i could drink while i waited on my other half to bring me gingerale heh. Also…on a random side note..what’s up with there being no cranberry gingerale at the stores this holiday? I haven’t seen it anywhere except as the PC generic brand…i want my canada dry cranberry gingerale!

uh…so anyway…this tea? delicious and exactly what i needed! :)

Lala

Haha. I always get my cranberry gingerale as early as possible. I have my whole family on the look out. I am not stocked up for a year or longer. I got mine in October.

Sil

i seriously haven’t seen any yet this year…

Nicole

Not that it matters much to you two, not being in the same country as I, but I have been looking for it also. I saw it for a couple of days about a month ago and since then nothing. :(

Sil

Yeah….so annoyed. I love it.

Terri HarpLady

I’ve never had it, not much for soda, but I used to really love Ginger Ale, AND I love Cranberry, so I may have to look for a bottle, just so I can try it out!

Starfevre

Can you make your own with some cranberry juice?

Sil

Yeah…..just not quite the same. But I do that sometimes heh

Starfevre

Have to take your word for it. Cranberry juice is nice mixed with lots of things but my hatred of all things ginger would prevent me from even looking for this.

Sil

awe….

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.
