GCTTB another from yesterday and the travelling tea box. This one was better than the gingerbread one, from the perspective of being more drinkable to me…however caramel vanilla this is not? It’s more like a slightly sweet average boring black red rose type tea. Happy to have tried it, but that’s where that stays.

I’m going to go with a starting count of 158 for March 1, though Feb i DID achieve my goal of getting to 150. :) Goal for this month… 140.

Anna

140! GO HEISENSIL!

Fjellrev

I believe in you, Sil. In Tony Little’e voice, “You can do it!”

Sil

dude i was almost back to 150 today…until tea from courtney showed up lol but i have a few packages going out this weekend that should help. I hope.

GCTTB i’m gradually working through some of the teas from the travelling tea box and yesterday i managed to get through a couple. I’m still behind with everything this week as work has been incredibly insane. I have been a fan of a number of ROT’s teas so i was happy enough to try this one. Sadly there’s something too sweet about this one, and it doesn’t quite remind me of gingerbread. It’s decent enough but not a teabag i’d g out of my way to get.

I like the lemon chiffon cake from this line…

Sil

hmm i’ll have to see if i can find it

backlog from yesterday. This was my other morning cup of tea. I still really enjoy this one, though perhaps slightly less than i did the first time i had it. I do enjoy it still, though i often forget to pull it out from my cupboard. I need to stop that :)

backlog from yesterday since my internet went poof! trying to work from home today so here’s hoping it doesn’t go poof again. I seriously hate internet providers in canada. all of them.

This was my pick me up tea yesterday and it was a good thing i had it. I LOVE this tea…the deliciousness of it always makes me feel better :) So glad to be back with my cupboard! (even if it IS still unorganised)

Tuscanteal

Where did you get it???

Sil

tuscanteal – my parents picked it up for me when they went to France after i received my sample from ysaurella and NEEDED to have it… when i run out..i’ll likely just bite the bullet and order from MF

Tuscanteal

Ahh, that’s why you have so many French teas right now. Lucky girl!!!

Sil

haha Ysaurela and a few others are my sources of tea samplings from france, with the exception of the fauchon teas i managed to snag at winners :)

drank BetTEA's Blend by 52teas

GCTTB!

soooo glad i didn’t buy this. sorry Frank, but you’re off my island for the time being. This was one that intrigued me but due to the fact that most reblends have eben lacking lately, combined with the overall feeling like the focus from frank is NOT on tea blending, I passed…oh and canadian shipping is the suck. When i saw this in the box iw as a little excited…excitement which soon faded on first sips. this is just… ick. honeybush, chamomile, blechy weirdness. no. thanks but no.

However, thanks to ash for sharing this so i could cross it of my list! :)

Edit: Final Count for February 145 (+ a bunch more that I don’t have the time to go through an add tonight…soo tired…final count tomorrow maybe. maybe…so i can get the march starting number.)

drank Carrot Cake by Della Terra Teas

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.

Sil

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 :)

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.
