drank Assam #1 by thepuriTea

Sip down! No way I’m going in to work on 3 hours of sleep…so maybe, just maybe I can catch up on some of my single cups that have been inviting to be had.

So final verdict on this Assam? It’s not the variety I really enjoy. It’s not a bad cup but its the wrong kind of fruity and it borders on being a little bitter/astringent even steeped at a lower temperature and brew time. I’m glad I tried it, but I’m not sad I’ve finished it up :)

Oh, boo! Guess I better stop complaining about the baby getting me up so early because I can usually nap later on…

I have to stay up to test things for work. I’m sleepy…so i’m drinking honeybush blends just in case i get to go to bed earlier than i thought. though they’re behind schedule. bah! Not a huge fan of this one but it’ll do in a pinch and i need to get through these 52 teas! haha

SIPDOWN!(216) I have been sorely neglecting drinking anything besides the 2 mugs i manage to bring to work…that’s how stupid insane things have been. But i’m home before 8pm tonight…and i don’t have to start working on things again until about 11pm. so i have a bit of time to have a few cups of tea tonight. And figure out if i can find a way to try work from home tomorrow so that i get a jump start on my tea drinking for the weekend…i have a bunch of 1 cup teas to finish off!

Another tea to stave off the crazies of the day! I picked this one because i haven’t had it in a while and i’m 100% hoarding this one. It might be one of my favourite chocolate teas because it’s so very much like good belgian mousse au chocolat! if only i could obtain more…

I hate it when you find a beyond delicious tea and it’s either really expensive or only available in another country! This one sounds so good!

Want. I wonder how much shipping is. Maybe I wait till I go to (Eastern) Europe in December.

Sil

nxtdoor…i’d check and see if it’s available…my parents had a bit of a time trying to find it while they were in france. Here’s hoping MF will come out with another like this…

drank Premium Taiwanese Assam by Butiki Teas

I figured given the way the last past couple of days have gone, i might as well do it right by starting my day with a cup of awesome! I always find myself hoarding this tea and then when i try it, want to drink it all down immediately. This really is a fantastic assam that i’m so happy to have tried.

i just need one thing to go right today…. 7.5 hour workday topped off with another 7-9 hours of over time. No lunch, system issues, finally home hoping to have a little downtime to get food and drink in me…no mail…too late in the day to have tea since i’ve been sleeping poorly and don’t want to risk it…all my verdant points are gone (40,000+)….email out to team, hope they can resolve this…

yep it’s that kind of day. at least i had this tea 12 hours ago to start the day? forgot how delicious it was…need to pick up more.

I agree with you sentiment.

drank Miami Mango by Steep City Teas
4669 tasting notes

THIS is so much better than i remember! Cold brew for the win! With a teeeeeny tiny bit of sweetner this is a pretty delicious cup of ice tea. It makes my happy as well since this is one of my older teas that i need to get to drinking down. I’m trying to do a multitude of things with my cupboard these days – sipdown 52 teas; get to 150; finish off my small sizes of things; try everything in my cupboard that i have yet tried…. you get the drift. :) At least it makes for a bit of fun, organising and re-organising things haha

While i wouldn’t call this an overly “mango” blend, it is pretty fruity and tasty in cold brew form. not too sweet and not to tart..and totally not hibiscus-y :)

Preparation
Iced 8 min or more
Tea Sipper

I love this one.

Sil

I wasn’t crazy about it the first time i had it but cold brewed its delicious!

I really do quite like this one cold brewed with a little sweetner. After tonight’s giant mugs i have just enough for one more cup of this before it’s out of the cupboard. May not get to any sipdowns today BUT i am at least well on my way to being able to do a bunch in a row of single cups heh

This is like sweet, cooled liquid cotton candy in a mug. Tasty!

Indigobloom

kinda feels like cheating when I do that 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.
