sipdown on this one, though it’ll be something i drink all day long. However i didn’t want to lose sight of it, since this was what i started my morning off. The lovely terri sent this my way and i’ve been saving it for a day when i really needed something nice to get me though. Today is that day! and man..first impressions? really amazing! more to come later…

still going… wheee!

Bonnie

Had some of this the other day too. I still have about an ounce left in my stash. Great mood enhancing puerh!

Sil

yeah…i’m really digging it… totally zoning out in work mode with it..just kicking through things!

Terri HarpLady

yeah, this is my favorite puer ever probably…it is a spiritual experience :)

I had a cup of this way early this morning to get me going. I’ve got an insane day of work ahead of me followed by the annual christmas party if i decide to go (though either way i’m out the money for the tickets)… I quiet like this blend, though i’m not sure if i like it more than the individual teas that make the blend up. hmmmm i’ll have to give that more thought :)

another day…another dollar for black friday spending on tea…not a whole lot i want. Long story short since it’s way past bed time, i had this – latte style because it makes me happy :) I am thoroughly enjoying not fussing with sample sipdowns or finishing off teas…because this is my weekend to drink what i want! haha not that i hate sample sipdowns but i’ve decreased my cupboard a bunch over the past while and work stress = tea is my go too small quiet moments during the day where i can zone out, take a deep breath and stop. for. just. one. sip.

drank Lime Chiffon by Della Terra Teas

I had another cup of this tonight since I might be getting more of this over black friday. If not, i’m not fussed about it since it’s a regular tea with Della Terra so i’m safe from having to moan over it’s removal from the site :) I received my swap teas from cteresa tonight but i’m trying to wait for a bit before i try them so that i can really sit and enjoy them without work hanging over my head. i MIGHT make an exception tomorrow morning for american breakfast haha…anyway, point being that i WAS down to 136 but now i’m back up to 142. However STILL under my black Friday goal so HA! :)

i made a couple cups of this with dinner – first steep with nothing and then added honey for all my subsequent steeps. I think i’ll try this with apple juice or something like that just to see how it fares with that or a nice black base. I’m trying to branch out a little in terms of blending my teas together so this should be a good one to try that with. over all though, this is a fairly tasty blend, as far as herbals go :)

Bonnie

That’s what I did too.

Sil

Yeah, you and a few others are inspiring me to start doing it more :)

keychange

I’m exhausted at work and did a double take when I read this note…I was like wait, she’s going to put apple juice in her tea? did she just say that? and then I read the tasting note again and realized it made sense haha.

Bonnie

This is like a mulling mix in many ways and versatile. Warmed with wine and cider would be good too. Wouldn’t be surprised to see this blend become available for sale.

I took a 5 min break today to finally get around to trying this tea. I particularly like vanilla teas as lattes, so i opted for that as my first go around with the tea. I am a fan! I’ll write a better review once i have it straight, but as a latte, i am great with this one! Now i just need to get around to comparing it to the vanilla tea from tao leaf tea in my cupboard heh

I owe Angel and teavivre a better review for this tea – work got insanely busy this afternoon and my first steep cooled before i’d even tried it. Long story short, i’m not a fan of most oolongs. This tea? pretty delicious!

and wow…this has been waiting for several hours for me to finish. not going to happen stupid work. long story short, i need to try this one again when i can pay attention to it. but on the whole, a nice tea, and it you like oolongs, probably even more yummy to you!

When i feel stressful, i often take a break to enjoy a cup of tea, to relax the body in the intervals of heavy works.

sipdown! (137) I’ve been drinking this most of the morning and i have to say it’s not a bad little tuocha. There are others i much prefer, but this is a pretty decent average puerh. more to come with a few more resteeps.

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.
