let’s talk about how the preorder on this one changed and NOW it’s going to be like August before i get my LB back. I.am.not.happy. Terri was awesome enough to send me an ounce, which i have since devoured and have maybe a cup left. i’m not thinking of stealing Cavo’s ounce…and even then i’m not entirely sure that will get me through. July 14 = 10 business days from that before i get my beloved tea….it’s like verdant is taunting me..oh hai…for your after birthday present, we will make you wait at least 10 more days for you tea. neener neener.

gah.

drank Campfire Blend by Verdant Tea

So I can tell we’re starting to make headway with the house because I’ve baked twice now in he the past weekend. Yesterday I made honey bran muffins with raisins (because let’s be honest bran muffins without raisins aren’t anything ppl want to eat…) and tonight? Tonight I’m making banana nut cookies…Sans nuts lol. I guess I could call them banana oat cookies? Neither my other half nor I really loves walnuts in cookies (or brownies! Bah!) . Both recipes were new ones, so they could have been disasters lol

Anyway, I digress… I’m enjoying my last cup of this one while I eat fresh baked cookies that are totally yummy. This one will be back in my cupboard I’m sure but another day.

Final count: 199 (woohoo! Sooo 99 teas in twoweeks? Lol you know it’s me…so of course I’ll try…. Not expecting to succeed)

[also for anyone who cares…operation 6 month is still going strong. down to 2 teas from october and nine from December, which is significant if you consider all my black friday orders lol)

Cavocorax

Woohoo! So many achievements! :D

drank Ginger Lime by Bayswater Tea Co.
7609 tasting notes

Still digging this one a bunch. I’m happy that gambles paid off when I hit bayswater. Nt all the teas I picked were winners but a bunch have been great. I also haven’t even tried a huge number of them lol. I like that this one reminds me a little of lime gelato from David’s but is zippier!

Courtney

Gambles paying off is always awesome.

Cheri

This sounds good. Do you do it as a cold brew or hot?

Sil

both actually!

drank Caramel-Toffee by Dammann Freres

and the rest of this gets set aside for whomever wants to pull it from my swap box. I’m doing my best not to keep teas around that have fallen out of favour or just make me happy to be drinking them. if it’s a chore, it’s not worth it. I drank nearly all of the 100g bag, so there’s not a lot left but i just.don’t. wanna.

Marzipan

I came to exactly that same conclusion today!

Stephanie

Life is too short to drink teas you don’t love :)

drank Caramel by TeaGschwendner
7609 tasting notes

yep…battle of the two caramels today in case i wasn’t doing this one justice and it won again. I think what i like about this one over the caramel toffee version from DF is that this is punchier. It’s got a base that is deeper and more present and makes me say HEY this is a cup of tea!

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.
