Apparently today was Butiki day..though it wasn’t planned. I had this with dinner tonight and while it was tasty, it didn’t rock my socks like it has before. Still though, happy to drink it and enjoy it.

Can you tell i’m tired? I drank this first thing in the morning..it was delicious but not as amazing as i wanted it to be. I feel like this might be better with a splash more puerh, though i did try to make sure the teaspoons i was using had all the teas. I’ll try it again this weekend perhaps…see what’s what

I had this in the morning and it was delicious. One of these days i’ll try three friends again but i’m pretty sure i’ll still enjoy two friends more :)

sipdown! I steeped this cup for over 7 mins and it was even tastier! I like this one a bunch, though it wouldn’t be something i’d drink all the time or even feel the need to keep in my cupboard all the time. :)

also…back down to 158! Wahooo!!!

Cavocorax

Oooh – I’ll have to try that! I grabbed 50g because I had a tin I wanted to fill up and it smelled good enough.

sipdown! Hot cup of this tonight and it’s delicious still. I have a hard time deciding which way of brewing this i prefer as both are yummy. Thanks as always for sharing tattoed_tea!

drank Santa's Secret by DAVIDsTEA

I picked this up on the weekend since i was trying to remember if i liked it or not. I still do, so that’s good to know, though it’s less wonderful than the first time i had it as my tastes have evolved from last year. No need to restock this, but i would be open to picking this up occasionally to enjoy from time to time.

I swear the mint in this smells a lot weaker this year.

drank Yi Fu Chun Black Tea by Yezi Tea
5609 tasting notes

this is my “required” sipdown for today, though it hardly counts as a sipdown since it’s been in my cupboard for all of a day. Kittenna dropped off tea with me before her trip so i’m just bringing myself back to 160 tonight at the least so that i don’t feel pressured to sipdown things this week. If i do, great, otherwise who cares! only 10 left to go! haha

I think i have LB on the brain since this is reminding me of it – at least as a sweeter, less malty sort of version of it. I could also pick up on the peach flavors towards the middle of the sip in the later infusions. Overall a really nice tea from yezi!

This was my other morning tea. Delicious and wonderful and uninterrupted! I am digging this one, though it’s not my favourite from verdant. This however is a hit, while the latest few have been more miss for me.

drank Laoshan Black by Verdant Tea

so i took the day off today. Off from sipdowns and older teas and i cracked open the 4oz of this that i picked up in september to really enjoy a tea today. I was up a little later last night than i wanted to be since Kittenna was crashing at my place to be close to the airport for her trip. So today was about tea enjoyment…no goals, no agenda, just 2 teas that i wanted to drink. And oh man….sooo worth it. I love this tea. I’ve missed this tea. booyah baby. booyah.

I almost have LB today, I really wanted it, but I had to run all over the place, & I just didn’t feel like drinking it like that.
I totally need to have a day to just focus on some of the teas that I Really Love…sigh…Maybe tomorrow. I’ll be home most of the day, alternating between 45 minute sessions of practicing & writing. Yeah, and tea.

Sil

yeah i just wanted a back to basics sort of day. I have at least one sipdown to do today since kittenna dropped off a couple of samples and i want to stay at 160 but that’s easily doable heh

Cavocorax

Good to hear! :) Why buy all this tea if you feel obligated to consume it with all the rules all the time! You deserve some LB.

Sil

Yep. This week I’m drinking whatever I want…especially since. I keep waking up early and not sleeping well. I figured out that I haven’t actually tried about 45% of my cupboard (which makes sense with some of my samples but not with larger sizes) so I’m also going to have fun exploring new teas heh

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.
