mmm i really need to get cracking on drinking more of my teas from Paris. I’ve being doing it gradually but now i should actually focus on them :) On the upside, my oldest teas are from April now i really am in to the “majority” of my teas. I quite like this one for a ceylon and i’m glad i picked this one up on the basis of the steepster reviews.

if you’re going to drink one JW tea in the morning, you might as well drink two! haha. Not much to say on this one beyond the fact that it’s still delicious and still one that i’m glad is in my cupboard.

Tealizzy

Such a yummy tea! I have two more on the way! Can’t beat that holiday sale!

gmathis

I like that logic!

mmm sad to see this one going, but glad that i had the chance to pick up these teas from JW for myself. They’ve been a great addition to my cupboard and will likely be back in the future. Once I get through a few more of my teas.

mmm noms. tea with a kick and a little cinnamon. I love this tea – it’s not as insane as something like kaphaa but it’s nice to have a tea that gets your mouth dancing :)

Love it when your mouth dances ;)

drank Paris s'éveille by Betjeman and Barton

I always forget i need to brew this one longer than normal. If i don’t, then the toffee and chocolate flavours are a little subdued. I am glad i picked this one up in Paris, though i wish it was a black base, versus oolong. At least it’s an oolong variety that i can get behind :)

noms. Enjoying this one again today since i need to get to 100 if i want any orders this weekend AND because it’s close enough to LB that it’s like a treat today. I need enjoyable drinking things since it’s operation “tear the house apart.” We’ve been putting off going through things in the house with the intent of getting rid of things we haven’t used in years and i’ve put a deadline for us of Dec 15 – when we start dog sitting for three weeks. So everything is going in to piles – keep, donate and trash. 900 CD’s? DONATE! (after making digital copies of them all…) etc.

OMGsrsly

Dog sitting for THREE WEEKS?! Haha. Man, I need your guys energy. I need to do the same since they’ll be replacing all the plumbing in my apartment.

Sil

hahaha i figure it’ll be a good way to keep me leaving the house and getting exercise – i tend to hibernate in colder months, as evidenced by my step count being waaaaaay down. :(

OMGsrsly

Oh yeah. You guys have that weather thing you deal with out there. I’m just hoping my feets stop hurting and I can start walking again.

Evol Ving Ness

THIS is just the kind of inspiration/motivation that I need. Well, without the dog component. As for CDs, take them to Vortex Records and sell them. They’ll buy classics and resell able ones.

Sil

Thanks for the recommendation! It’d be nice to get a little money for them even if it’s like 1$ a pop.

OMGsrsly

I need a place that will take CDs that don’t have the cases. I have so many, but ditched the cases ages ago to make them easier to move. :/

Sil

haha my cases all exist. i refused to ditch them because LINER NOTES! haha i was a dork

Kristal

Good plan! I have 2-3 things I need to put on kijiji myself. Plus, I’ve been using up any tea that I’ve bought before 2015.

Sil

heh my tea goal has always been to have a cupboard that is at most 6 months old… but i’m settling for a year old – though ignoring puerh, i’m generally at an 9 month old cupboard.

Kristal

I agreem Sil. My oldest teas are maybe just slightly over 1 year. I agree that I want most of my teas to be 6 months old or less :)

Sil

doesn’t work so well when you go to paris and buy 3.5kg of tea lol

Kristal

haha that’ll throw a wrench in the system ;)!

Evol Ving Ness

Sil, they’re pretty picky about the ones they’ll buy. You might want to call them to fact check. I think you might need to make an appointment to resell as well as it can be a time-taking process.

drank Random Steepings by Various Artists

brewed up my experiment today so see where it’s at. Mostly, not enough vanilla, but at least you can tell that the vanilla has softened the smokiness out. there’s a little sweetness there too. Will have to give it some more thought.

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.
