Tried this as a normal tea. Tonight. Um no thanks. I stand firm in my belief that murchies sells teas best served with milk and possibly sugar. I’ve got two more bags to use up tomorrow in my latte and then it’ll be a sipdown woohohoo!

Cavocorax

Yep. Seconded.
I’m really enjoying my Russian Caravan though, but I doubt I’d restock once I finish the remaining 5 oz. (It was a gift)

El Monstro

Russian Caravan has been reallllll good to me lately. As far as vanilla, I seem to like it best with milk too (or iced).

Amariel

I agree.

Woohoo! Sipdown while on a vacation lol I’m hoping for at least one more since I maya have purchased two tins of tears atthe grocery store since we don’t have republic of Tea at home. That being said, I’m sad to see this one go but I know there’s another order in store soon so not to worry. I have the house to myself atthe moment. My parents are off to a tennis lesson and Ian is still asleep. So I’m watching the golfers on the course and enjoying the sun.

There’s nothing like a cup of tea and a bit of quiet solitude.

Mmmmm morning tea to prepare me for the long drive to charleston to spend the day. I only have about one more serving of this one so I’ll likely save it for the last day here. On my reorder list though as I really enjoy this one from Stacy :)

Mom stole my other cup of tea so I had this one instead. Not quite what I wanted but it’ll do.

We’re having a relaxing “do what you want day” before we go to charleston for the day tomorrow. So lady was an other, get up and walk the beach, have breakfast and then Ian and I went for a bike ride to do more exploring while mom and dad went to the gym to work out. Back home for lunch and now I’m having tea and watching the gilders in our backyard lol

I don’t think I’ll reorder this tea even if it is fairly lovely. I have so many other teas I love more, though this has been hitting the spot while I’ve been here.

Thank you boxermama! For this addition to the BBB box. I brought this one with me because I thought it would be a good one for mornings and afternoons. Also, I still hadn’t managed to try it and the box will be on its way again soon. I’m doing y best to try and get through the teas sent to me before the next round arrives, though if think this time I won’t manage it. This is a nice malty and sweet tea At the same time. I’m curious as to how it will taste once I get home since the water here. Is uh….interesting lol

Afternoon tea latte after a crazy long day or trying to take mom shopping atthe outlets. Found a crazy good deal on a suit for her, which she needs and isn’t a fussy duddy suit. Exhausting, but a good day to do it as it was a bit cloudy. Overall just having a great time out here. This morning we got to watch the pelicans pass over the water as well as the herons. So good.

Nicole

Gotta keep an eye on those moms. Mine has a tendency to dress too old as well. :)

Cavocorax

Herons! I miss seeing herons!

Glad you’re having a good trip.

OMGsrsly

Haha! I’ve convinced my mom to get rid of some of her “old lady” clothes. So good job. :) Glad to see you’re having a great time.

Mmmm I had this one first thing in the morning after getting back from our early morning walk on the beach. We’re trying to get up every day to walk them beach for the sunrise. Up a 6:15, Two hours later, back to the place to make breakfast and start the day! This morning was buckwheat pancakes with bananas! Sooo good. With this tea, which, while it’s delicious. The water out here. Is just a little funny so it’s tastes a bit different. Still a happy tea though.

Cavocorax

That sounds great. Kudos for getting up so early.

OMGsrsly

Oh, that all sounds awesome. Do you have a recipe for the buckwheat pancakes? Anything about them really different in comparison to regular pancakes?

Sil

My mother has are recipe at home….she’s a vegetarian. Out here we’ve just picked up a mix to make things easier atthe place we’re straying at. The mix for these ones is surprisingly good….and I’ve handsome terrible buckwheat pancakes before

Sil

Stupid autocorrect. Handsome = had some

OMGsrsly

Your autocorrects while you’re away are kinda awesome. :) I’ll have to poke around the internets, then. Buckwheat = awesome, but can also = brick if you’re not careful.

Sil

You know, it’s not even being away. Its stupid ios7 that seems to do the stupidest things.

OMGsrsly

Glad I haven’t updated yet, then!

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.
