nomity nom nom…. not much to say about this tea except that it got me through today…and today was a good day because…..

I. SAID. NNNNNNNNNNNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

except that i did it by saying yes… “Yes, i would be happy to be the business lead on that project as long as you’re comfortable with the fact that it will not be delivered. Yes, i am more than willing to look after that project if you don’t mind that it won’t happen until January….of 2016” so there. Good tea. Good day.

OMGsrsly

That’s the perfect way to do it. :)

yyz

Good for you!

Cavocorax

Hahah. Good job!

Hillel

Sounds like that was a wonderful, reality-based response to the situation. That’s far to rare, so good for you, Sil!

Sil

i try… lately it hasn’t been heard…this time it was.

I’m finding that the “easiest” way to get a sipdown in at work this week is to use the samples of TTC teas that cavocorax gave me haha. Then i can get a second one in at night during the week when i have a herbal :) This one i’ve had before but it was still enjoyable. that being said, i see no need to go with the upgrade version, as i like the non upgraded version better :) thanks for letting me revisit this one Cavo!

Cavocorax

Oh shoot. I tried to send ones you hadn’t tried before!

Sil

haha i like revisiting old friends :)

drank Lime Sage Rooibos by Cornelia Bean
4875 tasting notes

omgsrsly sent this one my way and i was super excited because i do love me some lime flavoured type teas and having the sage there sounded interesting. Sadly even after letting this brew FOREVER, it’s still just kind of a limey creamy sort of tea. It’s nice, but not what i was expecting of hoping for, if that makes sense. Still though, a nice cup to end the day on given my meat coma at the moment from dinner at Copa Cabana (brazillian restaurant where the meat keeps coming….).

Final Count: 182 (3 days left until steepsterversary!)

OMGsrsly

Mmm, meat coma. :) Yeah, I was hoping for more sage too. Generally teas with food type herbs in the name need more of those herbs.

MzPriss

Is that one of those “meat on a sword” places Sil?

Cameron B.

I love those Brazilian steakhouses… Mmmmm… Meat on swords…

Terri HarpLady

There are a couple of those places in St. Louis, but I haven’t been to one yet.

That makes me think of the grill house we went to occasionally in Giayaquil , Ecuador. It was called Parilla del Nato, I think, it was named after a football star otherwise known as the nose if anyone is wondering. It is a mid range chain in Guayaquil and its suburbs and the portions are huge. I used to bring home the leftovers and they would feed 4-5 people from one order.

Sil

Yes MZPriss :)

drank Cotton Candy by DAVIDsTEA
4875 tasting notes

variaTEA dropped this off and i knew i had to try this one and the others sooner, rather than later, in case i fall in love with any of them and decide that i NEED ONE over the summer. THis? This is liquid sugar and absolutely NOTHING that i need in my cupboard, but i will give it to david’s that if you like a cup full of sugar, this will fit the bill lol. I give it total props for being just like cotton candy, but some things…weren’t meant to be a tea flavour. :)

Dexter

LOL Agreed…..

drank Vanilla Citrus Spice by Verdant Tea
4875 tasting notes

it’s back! in my cupboard! and so i drank it..because i have no self control lol. Oh well, i’ll spend the rest of the week trying to catch up on sipdowns i think but today, today i just wanted good, delicious teas at work.

MzPriss

It’s in mine too and I am so glad you and Terri raved about it so much that I got some without doing a sample first. It’s delicious.

Terri HarpLady

I still have some from my last MEGA order. In fact I drank some yesterday, I just didn’t review it, cuz…well…I’ve already reviewed it a bunch of times. :)

drank Zheng Shan Xiao Zhong by Yezi Tea

soooo close to being done with this one. This + maple syrup today was a happy time. :)

Dexter

Glad you enjoyed it – this didn’t work for me today. I need to get my attitude adjusted back to appreciating my black teas (considering how many/much I just ordered).

drank Magic Dragon by DAVIDsTEA
4875 tasting notes

variaTEA gave me some of this so i opted to try cold brewing first..came home and guzzled it down. It’s pretty good but there is a weird taste to it that i wasn’t a fan of and it smells funky lol which should be a recipe for dislike, but instead i enjoyed it. Going to try it hot next i think just to see if that works or hot brewed then cooled :) thanks variatea! fun to try new teas…even if it does make me wanna sing puff the magic dragon all day…

Final Count: 184 (need to catch up and try for an extra sipdown every day this week to stay on track!)

Cavocorax

I’m at 212 if that makes you feel any better! :D

Sil

it does lol you were soooo far below me :) Operation 100 (95) is back on track at my house…

Cavocorax

Hahah. Glad to be of service! I’m aiming for 150 first…

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.
