this was perfect for today…the right sort of fruity, honey black that i needed to take the edge of insanity off.

Decided that i need to try and have a few puerh/gonfy type sessions today because the weather is shit outside and i’m working from home. I also haven’t had a chance to do much of anything besides western brew so i’d like to change that. I have a ton of puerh that i want to revisit, some samples and a cupboard to get in order! :) I pulled this one out as i also want to try and get at least one sample down today. I’ve had this one before, courtesy of dexter (as is this sample) and i rather enjoy it.

oh god. i just lost my train of everything. we’re doing this mini “introduce the team” thing at work and i think i just convinced my boss to make it powerpuff super hero themed for fun…. which doesn’t happen in a bank normally for this sort of thing and i think he’s onboard since he just sent my his own avatar that he created, complete with his cat. oh god i am dying here…

drank Acerola Cherry Potion by Tealux

this one doesn’t work for me. It’s cherry and has a tangy zip to it but the smell is too artificial or something and gets in my nose. i suspect there are those who would really enjoy the flavours at play here, but they’re not for me :)

The problem with cherry teas are that they’re horrible by being too artificial or gross. I love cherries, but I haven’t found the right one, yet.

It sounds like a white tea from DAVID’s. I liked that one but not enough to restock.

noms. Sharing the rest of this with a friend from work whose tastes run to greens versus my favoured blacks ;)

I opened this one today – my present for getting my cupboard weight down more than anticipated in March. Let me tell you the dry leaf on this one is amaaazeballs. I made my other half smell this one and he immediately said chocolate., instead of saying “dirt” like he always does. I wish the brewed version of the tea was as chocolatey as the dry leaf – instead it turns into a VERY pleasant more typical yunnan golden bud. That’s not to say it was delicious and thoroughly enjoyable, just lacking the intensity of the chocolate aroma of the dry leaf. :)

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.
