drank Apple Pie by The Tea Centre
5360 tasting notes

this is a sipdown, even though Alice was generous enough to send me enough for a bunch of cups. I just drink big cups AND want to share/return the tea favour with tea friends. So the rest of this is going off to a mystery tea friend since i think she/he might enjoy it. ha! this isn’t bad. i found myself drinking it and wishing it was just a little bit more apple pie like, but still enjoying the flavours and the fact that the tea base is still present, unlike a vast majority of flavoured teas. So thank you Alice this was enjoyable!

mmmm keemun + maple syrup always = my happy place. Especially on colder mornings that i need to get cracking on things. Sipdown as well. I’m not adding the teas dexter sent me until the end of the day so that maybe i can manage to get still be under 160 when i have to add them…or at least not nearly as high above that!

Dexter

I showed great restraint and only sent you 10… and it looks like you are at 156 even with the ones I sent you. Me thinks you are still in reach of 150 by BF.

Terri HarpLady

I might wait until after black friday to add in all the teas you sent me, Sil! LOL, although the ones from Teavivre were already on my list (in an effort to keep up the faith), as were the ones from my Yunnan Sourcing order.

Sil

Another sipdown! I figured with the incoming BBB Box, i really should get through at least ONE of the teas from the last round! I’ll focus on the others this weekend heh. A great tasting tea that i’m super happy tastybrew sent out way :)

sipdown! I had this early today as i need to get a few sipdowns in today since dexter made my cupboard go up a bunch! I think the BBB Box might also be sitting at the post office for me, so there’s another few teas. I REALLY want to stay as close to 150 as possible to make sure i keep my goal of 150 by black friday. Awesome tea friends are making that hard though! While i’m not an EG lover, i do appreciate getting to try this one out so thanks Cavocorax!

Terri HarpLady

The BBBBox has a few extras in it for you…ahem…

Dexter

(sitting quietly in the corner pondering Terri’s definition of “a few”)

Sil

Dexter….I sure it’s as bad as yours! :)

drank Assam Joonktollee by The Tea Centre
5360 tasting notes

I received this one from Alice in our swap and honestly, i just wanted to drink it because the name is fun to say. :) It also helps that it’s an assam, which i love. I don’t recall much of this one as it’s a backlog from yesterday but i do remember enjoying it thoroughly. I have just enough for a small cup to really pay attention to it, while still being able to send a taste to Terri for her to try :)

drank Golden Needle Premium by Mandala Tea
5360 tasting notes

this was a lovely tea that i had yesterday. I didn’t get much in the way of tea drinking done yesterday because of date night, but i plan on making up for that today with a work from home day haha. I’m looking forward to drinking my mandala teas once i get through a few more other teas in smaller amounts (dexter i’m looking at you here lady!)

Cavocorax

Working from home? I expect to see 6 sipdowns today. :P

Sil

haha you will… i’m sure

This was my evening cup of tea because i’m exausted. I had this while watching an episode of dr who. Likely going to just try and get to sleep early tonight because tomorrow is date night!

I’m taking my other half out for dinner at La Societe (think fancy but not stuffy, french cuisine) followed by Aladdin (the musical) just because we haven’t been to the theatre in a long time. Plus i’m a big kid. so there lol

JustJames

DR WHO! oh, sorry, were you talking about tea?

VariaTEA

My sister went to Aladdin on opening night and the actor broke the magic carpet. Other than that she said it was good so hopefully they worked out the kinks since then (I am sure they did). Enjoy!

alice

Dr Who, yes! I’m catching up on some of the original series at the moment. So looking forward to the new stuff :)

Sil

dr who = awesome
Variatea – if aladdin is half as good as the lion king, i’m sold. I’m not the worlds biggest fan of musicals but the Lion King was stunning….and toy story the musical was cute and well done, so here’s hoping aladdin is a good time as well. though i suspect i’ll have a hard time not thinking of robin williams as the genie the whole time haha

Cavocorax

Hope you guys have fun tonight!

Terri HarpLady

I grew up on musicals & absolutely love them, although it’s been a long time since I’ve been to one. I also love opera! Let us know how the show was, & the dinner!
Dr Who…I still gotta watch the last 3 episodes of the latest season! Time…how can I get more time into my life???

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.
