GCTTB!

Well i didn’t drink much of this or my other cup of tea tonight…somuch for getting through some of the teas in the box. This one taste like generic della terra “cake” tea. similar to upside down pineapple… there is not much in the way of spicy carrot cake, creamcheese icing sort of thing. This just reminds me of a rooibos upside down cake. meh. glad to try it though.

i’m back. I was really excited to be able to come home after work and sit, drink tea, organise my cupboard and catch up… however after 3 hours of sleep, followed by an 11 hour work day to come home and fine no food in the house, laundry all over the house to be put away and my other half having apparently done nothing today except washing the laundry…let’s just say i get no time to myself tonight…and i’m a grumpy bear. Oh and my other half? gone for the evening to dodgeball…won’t be back for another hour.

this was my morning tea…and apart from this and my other tea, i haven’t had a chance to eat all day. On the upside, at least i had this tea and my other morning tea…which was a welcome cup of warmth and comfort now that we’re back in the cold.

__Morgana__

Get some sleep. :-)

Sil

have to put away all the laundry before i can….it’s all over the bed sigh

Nicole

Poor grump. Hope the trip was excellent, even if you are now back in the polar vortex of doominess. Sigh. I’m not even in the worst of it and I’m ready for no more cold!

I’m excited you’re back, Sil… but not quite as excited as Terri.

Anna

TERRI ARE YOU OKAY

Stephanie

ROFL! Terri is blowing up all our notices

Terri HarpLady

oops!!!
HAHAHAHA, I AM glad to have Sil back, but that happened last night, on my ipad. I swear to you all, the button wasn’t responding. There will probably be a couple more snaffoos before it’s over with. I think there were a couple other comments that I tried to send that my screen didn’t appear to be responding to either.

Sil

it’s ok terri…we know you really just missed me lots.

Terri HarpLady

that’s because you’re my awesome tea sister (((hug)))

Tea?yay! First cup since Sunday and it’s soooooooo goooood!

Anna

Your body must be so confused. ‘Where did all the tea go?!’

Sil

Pretty much….haven’t had any coffee either until today heh it’s been nice

__Morgana__

How did you avoid caffeine withdrawal headache?

Sil

Uh….sooo funny story? Caffeine doesn’t really affect me, as long as I eat. Which is also why I can consume as much tea as I do when I’m home. If I’ve eaten during the course of the day, I can drink coffee/tea and go to bed. :) if I haven’t eaten, then I’m screwed. Going off tea and coffee, I’m fine as long as. I eat…which I have certainly been doing a lot of here, haven’t even switched to drinking coke…just water :)

__Morgana__

That’s really interesting. When I was younger, caffeine didn’t keep me awake, but I ALWAYS got a withdrawal headache if I didn’t have it for more than a day. I still get the headaches, and caffeine also now affects me more than it used do, so worst of both worlds.

Sil

I’m hoping that the headaches never kick in for me….that would be so nice :)

Sil

Maybe it’s cause I never had coffee until I was 24 and before that, neither tea nor pop was a Regular occurrence in my days :)

Love this. Like a lot. When I get back I will write a proper note but this is wonderful. Only downside? Heavy tea = not many cups in 50g :(

Cavocorax

So your flight wasn’t cancelled after all? :P I thought you were in florida but finally caught up to your earlier posts!

Sil

No. I’m still here. Leave tomorrow….I hope

Cavocorax

I hope so too! Booo

Fjellrev

Crossing my fingers you’ll get to board a freaking plane tomorrow.

Sil

Sorry david’s tea, another miss for me.

Fjellrev

They just couldn’t help themselves with the Weird Aftertaste extract.

TheTeaFairy

Haha! Fjellrev, exactly!
(Feet, yes Sil, this one tastes like feet. Drank it few years ago and still remember how BAD it was…)

Sil

Helena

My mint to be one had a really nasty aftertaste that reminded me of a bad pineapple… I threw it all out and was so very disappointed. Oh well there is always Read My Lips and White Chocolate Frost..

Ysaurella

Feet ! oh lord, I’m happy I never tasted that one

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.
