final count: 82

How does YS compare to Verdant? I saw it on their website and was tempted.

Sil

i like them. you need to factor in shipping from a cost perspective, but i’m leaning towards making YS’s versions standard in my cupboard. i did a comparison last weekend of a couple of them

Ubacat

It’s a lot cheaper than Verdant’s and YS has loads more selection when ordering. So if they are that close , I would probably lean toward YS too. I’ll have to order some and see.

drank American Breakfast by Mariage Frères

if i have paris breakfast, i might as well drink up some american breakfast as well. Still trying to decide what tea(s) to bring with me next week – suspect i’ll stick to maybe just 2 as i’m not sure how much time i’ll spend on tea. still really like how this one is much more malty, cocoa-y and smoother than paris breakfast. I’ll be sad when this one is gone.

drank Pomme by Hediard

mmmmm another tasty tea finished up. I finally feel like i’m making headway on some of my older french teas that i don’t necessarily ADORE, but still really like. It’s been far too easy to hoard the teas so i’m trying to make a concentrated effort to finish them off. I like this one because it’s not your traditional apple cinnamon tea imo. The flavouring is subtle though, so that doesn’t appeal to some.

today this cup is full of malt and vanilla. I still much prefer american and french breakfast to this one, but this one isn’t bad in a pinch.

Another tea gone from my cupboard. Some days, i love working from home :) While i enjoyed this one quite a bit – steeping it according to their instructions was too strong for me. I also vastly prefer this one in a mug versus my travel mugs, so that makes this one a little less optimal for what i like my teas to be :)

I love working from home! Today I’m finally updating my website, which has required me to learn a new web design program, since the one I was using (iWeb) is way outdate. Hopefully by the end of the day, I’ll be done, at least for now!

I think your box is overflowing, I need to find time to go to the post office! And then start a new box ;)

Sil

terri – at least i’ve got room for my cupboard to expand a little – i’m about 2 months ahead of my weight goal!

Terri HarpLady

Your teas are in the mail!

Sil

Nice…wonder if it’ll be there when I get back heh.

Another tea i’m finishing up this morning. REALLY sad to see this one go – especially as i didn’t get a chance to compare it against teavivre’s keemun. If i ever have an opportunity, i’ll be picking up more of this one.

Going to be off on vacation for a couple weeks so i’m missing out on a lot of quality tea drinking time in August. As i’m working from home today, trying to finish off a few of my teas that are either near sipdowns or have one cup left. Sad to see this one go, as i do enjoy it – glad that i have more laoshan teas in my cupboard to continue to have :)

Kristal

That’s the one bad thing about going on vacation- I don’t have my “equipment” for making super good quality tea.

Sil

haha i bring my brew baskets with me. And teas that are no fuss that can be steeped in boiling or just under. So i HAVE tea with me, i just find a drink a lot less because i’m not packing up tea to drink at work etc..

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.
