sipdown! (182) my cupboard WOULD have been at about 155 today and I easily would have made it to my dec 31 goal however i received my package from Miss B yesterday and now i’m up at 182 haha. that may change a little if i get enough energy to pull my swaps together that need to go out but i’ll consider my goal achievable and just aim for 140 by the end of January. I had a rare thought that i would try to get my cupboard down by 10 every month in 2014 so that by November i’d be able to order 60 teas and still be under 100 haha. I’ll probably still aim for that, along side of my goal of not having teas older than 10 months in my cupboard. :)

I had the last couple of bags of this tea as a latte and i’m glad that i did. it makes this a MUCH better cup of tea by making it a creamier, stronger chocolate tasting tea. Not a restock for me, but it was tasty to drink.

This yo-yo tea cupboard diet sounds like quite the struggle. Yikes!

Fjellrev

drank Black Dragon Pearls by Teavana

Another tea from this morning. Slow going day filled with lots of naps and a few cups of tea to keep me hydrated! Almost time for soup too heh. Another averagely good cup of tea. I’ll stick to teavivre’s and mandalas though.

drank Harvest Spice Tea by The Tea Spot
6481 tasting notes

I’m trying to stick to teas that i am familiar with today or teas that have a really strong flavour since my senses are a little diluted today. I cannot stand being sick. I’m barely getting work done today and sitting takes all my energy. Nap central is my house today.

This tea came courtesy of Terri! I have no recollection as to whether i asked her for this one or she just sent a sample my way…either way it’s pretty good. The cinnamon is a little sweet in this one – but i found that today, drinking it side by side with a black tea made it perfect lol when i’m not sick again i’ll give it a shot again. But i like this mix of cloves and orange.

Lala

Hope you feel better soon!

Kamyria

Feel better!

Fjellrev

Rest that little head of yours, Sil!

Sil

Dexter

Hope you feel better. “Sitting takes all my energy” That is exactly how I feel. Accomplishing next to nothing at work today.

backlog from the weekend. Another tea i had but can’t remember anything beyond the fact that i enjoyed it quite a bit lol

edit: i mad it to 157..but then miss B’s tea showed up AND i’m sick so i can’t drink a whole lot that’s new. So not going to make my dec 31st goal but i did get pretty close AND didn’t buy a bunch of things i wanted to as a result :)

Plunkybug

I do like this one…hope it, or something like it, becomes permanent.

drank Eggnog & Pralines by Butiki Teas
6481 tasting notes

this is a slightly nuttier version of creamy eggnog, though it tastes much like i remember the other tasting. I’ll have to do a side by side comparison at some point just for fun.

Mostly, though…Dexter you’re awesome. that is all.

(edit: back up to 157, with a package still sitting in mail jail)

Cavocorax

Oh right! I should try that with my kettle!

Dexter

I’m sure that you will give that box a better home than I would :))

Sil

I’m going to hug them and kiss them and love them forever….

Dexter

and call him George?

Cavocorax

Hahahah you guys.

drank Cinnamon Roll by Joy's Teaspoon
6481 tasting notes

Another tea from Tastybrew via the BBB Box. I used to LOOOOOVEEEEEEE frank’s cinnamon roll honeybush and then, i didn’t. I love cinnamon swirl bread, and then i liked it less (still a great tea though). So now there’s this one. And i think cinnamon teas are teas that i love and then don’t love…ebbing and flowing like the tide.

I like very much that this tea still keep the base present. It’s not just cinnamon in a cup. it’s baked goods like. mmmmm thanks tastybrew!

Fjellrev

I know what you mean about cinnamon teas. I’m hoping to pick up more of Tea Desire’s Cinnamon Star before I head back. It’s the only cinnamon tea that I never got sick of. Like a warm cinnamon bun.

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.
