another from omgsrsly while not a sipdown, i’m having this today so that when i have it again, it WILL be a sipdown haha. Need to make sure i keep working on getting things down as well as finishing them off :) i am really enjoying this one today. it’s not a BOLD tea, but it is smooth and i drank it all before i realised it. There’s a ittle astringecy in it but that just makes it enjoyable for me. thanks a ton omgsrsly!

3/28 Sipdowns

missB sent these my way and i apparently forgot to write a note when i had them before. I’m sending 1 of these babies over to Terri to try out since i think she might have fun with it :) I really like the way these look as well as the honey sweet chocolatey taste they produce. While i tried it the way the store recommended, i found i most enjoyed it when i use longer steeps :) thanks for letting me try these missb!

MzPriss

Dadgummit – it didn’t show all my characters – I was trying to make raised eyebrows LOL

MzPriss

So you’re saying “BIG Dragon Balls?”

Sil

i’ve seen bigger cough but yes…those balls are pretty big

MzPriss

That cracked me up

Sarsonator

Well this convo woke me right up!

Sil

talking about balls has a tendency to do that… they’re just so tasty snicker

MzPriss

Especially when they’re BIG and um, “handmade”

2/28 sipdown

Thanks for sharing this one with me cavocorax i hadn’t tried this one and it is in the usual TTC fashion, an excellent tea! It’s fruity but not overly so and just has the right balance of strength to it.

I had this as a latte last night and it was deeelicious! thanks for the thought ombsrsly this is a tea that i would consider stocking as part of my few flavoured puerhs tha ti enjoy, though it’s not my all time favourite. I do relaly like the combination they have going on here though. Thanks for letting me try this one out omg!

Final Count yesterday: 169 because of the awesomeness of Dexter…i’ll forgive you this time! ;)

drank Ginger Lime by Bayswater Tea Co.

backlog!

Last of this finished up yesterday while the other half and i got in a tv show and dinner. I try really hard to make sure that even if i’m working like nobody’s business during the week, i shut down on friday at a reasonable time, and spend a relaxing evening with my other half not thinking about work. I may get up at 7am the next day to finish work but i need that evening to take time to reconnect with him and just unplug from all the work frustration. So this + tea AND to bed “earlier” than i have been, means i may survive this weekend lol

this is almost done, so i think my next cup of this should be on it’s own again so i can have a reminder of whether i want to pick this up again in a few weeks…august is almost here! (not that it means much if i can’t get my cupboard down) i mixed this with cremem brulee from bayswater and loved it! as usual heh

drank Yu Lu Yan Cha Black by Verdant Tea

nom nom nom. I’m still finishing up the last of this that courtney sent my way when she found the smokey note too much for her. And every time i have this, i seem to be closer to approaching the point where this might be another favourite from verdant and need a bump up because i gulp this down every time i have it – with or without a splash of maple. So thanks again courtney cause i am loving this, and should have another 4 oz in tomorrow lol

MzPriss

I just got some of this for the first time and tried it this week – I like it a LOT

Sil

im’ hoping the new harvest will be as delicious – may do a comparison when i pick up the new from mail jail lol

MzPriss

If what you have is better than this new one – you are fortunate. I really like this one and I accidentally ordered it twice (comes from having a disorganized cupboard and not knowing what you have) and I’m really glad now. It’s good

Sil

i’ll let you know haha

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.
