I have been up since forever this morning and because of that, i’m trying to get through a few puerh that i haven’t yet tried, in the event i ever get around to being allowed to place an order. so i randomly pulled a 2007, 2008 and 2009 out of my cupboard of various puerhs to see what was what.
this particular one, is slow to build – the initial rinse and few steeps being lighter but still smooth and tasty. It reminds me of a few other puerhs that i’ve had – being nothing spectacular, but still an enjoyable drink. We’ll see how the rest of the day goes.

noms! farewell gregory’s. I would totally pick you up again in the summer as a tasty fruit tea that i enjoy both hot and cold brewed. It’s got the tartness from the hibby but it’s not overpowering and it makes me a happy camper.

I’m going to be working from home next week for 4 days but “home” will be ottawa so i need to pack up some teas that i can spend some time with over the week. here’s hoping i can get a few sipdowns in!

lots of fruit teas these days. I highly recommend folks check out tea G. Their blends seem to be well balanced. While i’m not a hibby hater, i do think a lot of their fruit teas have a really great balance and there are a number that can be picked up that are totally not hibby brews :)

i finished this one today and it was a sad day. Yay for sipdowns but booo on a really great iced tea leaving my cupboard. Here’s hoping i can pick up more before it disappears at the end of september.

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.
