So strangely I haven’t apparently had this since December…..which doesn’t really seem right but hey, we’ll go with it. Final tally for tonight is 230 BUT I haven’t had a chance to put the shared order that Terri and I have that’s at my house. That’s another 8 teas or so but ill worry about those when I get some time on the weekend since I suspect I may have to manually enter them all.

Release is apparently finally going in this weekend which normally would mean lots of tea drinking Saturday night but they’re forcing us to go to the centre, rather than test from home since its been a shit show the past few releases soooooo it basically means no tea for most of Saturday and Sunday. Which sucks. Which means ill be struggling to get to 200 before I go on vacation but maybe I can get enough teas to 1 cup status to bring a new cup of tea for me to drink every day I’m on vacation for sipdowns lol.

This tea? Well see previous notes. It’s lemon, its creamy and I think? I prefer the lime and the orange over it, but not by much…they’re all a pretty close margin :)

Is that supposed to be 230 or did you just gain 100 teas while I wasn’t looking? :)

Sil

haha yeah 230 lol

Cavocorax

230! That sucks that you’re going to be so busy on the weekend though. Don’t you ever get days off?

Sil

Days off…..lol sometimes. Usually I should have my weekends off always but it’s been a bit of a mess with releases the past few months. On the plus side, if this keeps up ill have like 3 months of vacation racked up since time in lieu is 1.5 hours for every 1 hour you worked lol

Nxtdoor

Ah, there’s that familiar word “release” that I thought I wouldn’t see for a while. Hahaha.

Sil

nxtdoor – they’re talking one every month until november now…to catch up bwahahaha so you’ll be hearing it lots! :)

Another tea nearing the end of its life with me. I still enjoy this though its less wonderful and delicious than when I first started drinking it, and tea. I like the creaminess of this one with the slight hint of berry. Overall a pretty good rooibos blend from the persimmon tree.

Sipdown! This is a tea that works best as a cold brew. I didn’t hate the hot brew that I tried tonight but it wasn’t nearly as tasty as the cold brew was. Either way it was still nice to try and now I’m one step closer to 200…..though as I start to plan my birthday orders I’m looking at roughly 200$…..sooo need to find a way to trim those orders down lol

I’ve had this a few times now, and apparently haven’t logged it much. It’s a really light in flavour tea but it’s not too bad. I like that it gives me another caffeine free option. I don’t think i’d keep this around permanently in my cupboard but it wouldn’t ever be turned down. I am packing up the last couple bags for a swap since i think it’s a good one to share if for no reason than it’s not caffeinated lol

Sounds tasty! At whatever point I allow myself to make random tea orders again, I’ll have to specifically look for barley teas. Om nom nom.

Sil

it’s pretty good…just want a stronger flavour

thank you angrboda for a sample of this one! Tonight, i am really digging this brew. something about this reminds me of cherry more than cranberry but tonight…that’s good enough for me. Will try for a better tasting note the next time i drink this… super exausted.

Made this cold brewed last night and apparently this is a tea that suits me better as a hot brew. Cold it just didn’t seem to be as flavourful as a hot brew and i was missing out on the deliciousness of the strawberry from the hot brew. I’m thinking hot brew + cool this off might be the way to go. Not a bad run as a cold brew but just not as wonderful as i thought it might be!

Preparation
Iced 8 min or more

drank Autumn Blend by PureAromaTea

Backlogging from last night. I apparently drank this and forgot to log it. Not a bad little tea though it’s not my favourite. i think that’s much more because of my tastes rather than the tea itself. Once again purearoma seems to have gotten the art of tea + flavours down pat.

Preparation
Boiling 3 min, 0 sec

SIPDOWN on this one since i’m kind of cheating and the rest will be going out for terri to try. :) Such is the benefit of being able to share teas with my tea sister! I quiet enjoyed this one though i can’t for the life of me remember anything about it since i had it more than 12 hours ago. At the end of the day it had to have been at least middle of the road since i don’t remember disliking it and i finished it off over the course of my incredibly stupidly busy morning :)

Had this again this morning and i’m glad that i did. It was a comforting blend to have. I have to say though, not sure i’ll get 9 cups out of the ounce – feels more like 6 (and that’s 6 normal size cups not my double cups). not a huge deal but i haven’t felt like i’m overleafing, but maybe i have been. Either way this is a really delicious blend and not overly in your face. I like how subtle it is…makes me happy!

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.
