drank Oolong Creme by Sloane Tea Company

another non black tea for the day in between sleeping…i’m starting to outgrow this one. While i still enjoy the first steeping, it makes me wish i had more of mandala’s milk oolong instead. For when i feel the need to have one that is. Still though, decent enough and enjoyable today while i’m curled up under the blankets watching bad tv. :)

drank Shamrock Tea by 52teas

so many teas to drink…i really do neglect the teas in my cupboard that aren’t blacks – someday i’ll need to either just stop buying them or make sure that at least once a week i drink them. Today is apparently that day. I have a full bag of this, and while i like it…i don’t love it. I am not usually in the mood for a green mint tea…however when i do drink it i’m always slightly pleasantly surprised because i forget there’s vanilla in here to soften the mint. I wish there was a little more of the vanilla flavour :) Likely not a repurchase ever but i’ll still like drinking this.

I picked this one up on a whim from TTC because i figured i should try at least one of their non black teas (and terri’s done a good job of sharing their oolongs with me)

this is actually pretty tasty! It’s sweet, and while there’s a small floral undertone to this, it’s juicy and tasty! I’m a fan!

drank With Open Eyes by Butiki Teas

I am home today. Sick. Not working. Blah…i’ve been fighting this for a few weeks now and today my body decided to give up. Coincidentally it picked a good day since all my meetings are postponed for the day and the few pieces of work i HAD to get done today, i managed to do on sunday while testing. So for once, the work isn’t piling up..much.

I’m up for a bit to get some food before i go back to sleep and i opted for a few cups of non black teas. I tend to want things other than my usual black bold cups when i’m sick. So i pulled this one out and it was perfect for today. Delicious strawberry ginger…

caile

one more cup of this tomorrow as a cold brew and then i’m out…until cavocorax comes to visit :) i am stupidly exausted today. We had dinner and i have apple crisp cooking in the slow cooker because i’m lazy and didn’t want to babysit the oven…plus we’re also making banana tonight!

Nicole

“making banana?” Is that a euphemism? ;) or was there a word left out… :)

keychange

Banana bread? muffins? or just plain banana? LOL

Kaylee

I figured it was a banana crisp. Although I didn’t know that was a thing until now.

Sil

I love you guys…. Banana bread….man I can’t stop laughing now

OMGsrsly

Say no more, say no more. ;)

QueenOfTarts

Ha! I was also confused about the banana.. I thought, “Hm. That’s something new.”

caile

lol I could hardly wait to check back this morning and find out what kind of banana. :-)

Sil

You guys make me laugh….so thank your for that haha

I’ve been drinking this all afternoon since we got back from the mall and it’s been a great way to sit, relax and calm down. Just needed some down time to not do much of anything.

drank Breakfast Blend by Fortnum & Mason
5392 tasting notes

mmmm another tea from this morning that accompanied me to the mall. I added a splash of maple syrup to this one and again, it made me happy. While not my favourite blend from fortnum, it is still pretty decent!

keychange

You braved the mall today? Good for you!

Sil

necessity…i had to take mail to the post :) However it wasn’t as bad as i thought it would be -likely because it’s sunday. Managed to buy a few clothes, shoes and splurged on a few things from aveda to take advantage of their sale heh.

keychange

Sounds like a day full of win!

Sil

it was…got to start looking at wedding rings today too heh

Cavocorax

Oooooh! That’s awesome!

Nicole

Rings! Yay!

Ysaurella

sounds like a good day ;)

drank Thé du Loup by THE O DOR

sad sad sipdown for me. (127) I needed something to get me through having to go to the mall today so i packed this with me. Sooo good. I WILL be getting more of this..oh yes i will. thank you again cteresa

edit: resteep on this is pretty good too…i just couldn’t bear to let it go..

cteresa

This was one of the fastest disappearing teas I ever bought, auto rebuy when I had the chance ( though next rebuy is looking more difficult).

And it seems to not be a fussy tea about how it gets brewed. I call it the golden retriever wolf!

Sil

yeah…i thought maybe the first time i had it, i was exaggerating how much i liked it…i wasn’t lol

Tuscanteal

No no, there is no exaggeration with this tea, it’s that good!!!

drank Lime Chiffon by Della Terra Teas
5392 tasting notes

very nearly a sipdown, though since i’ve got another few ounces of this coming my way via cavocorax, it won’t be for long! and that, that makes me happy because i need more teas in my cupboard that aren’t black or puerh lol for when i just want something different. Still loving this.

Cavocorax

I hope it comes in soon!
I hope something comes in soon!

Sil

Lol should have ordered room yezi…that stuff ws practically here after the. Weekend lol. I’m disappointed in the Toronto ppl you ordered from….us can’t keep 10 days but Toronto shouldbe. Within the week. :(

Cavocorax

Yeah! My Della Terra order arrived today – I would have bet money that my OTHER order would have arrived first!

I’ll keep that in mind about Yezi too! I like fast shippers.

Sil

mail on sunday? weeeeiiiirdddd… also that’s awesome. It also means we’re one step closer to having to meet up heh

Cavocorax

Yeah I went for a walk to the library and saw three mail trucks drive by. I had my fingers crossed that they were coming to meeeeee.

sipdown! I may need to pick this one up again. I never did get around to trying to steep it in anything but water. I just have quite loved this blend as an overall nice tea to have in the evening before bed.

Stephanie

You can have the rest of mine if you want it, Sil. I only have a couple of cups worth left, but I didn’t like it enough to keep it. Too much fennel, Bleh!

Sil

i’ll likely buy more, plus shipping from us to canada is a pita – just ask terri lol but i appreciate the offer!

JustJames

hah! took me a sec….. pita.

Sil

yeah sorry…i get people with that one all the time.. maybe it’s an alberta thing lol

Stephanie

Yeah, shipping to Canada has gone up :/

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.
