Still drinking tea, just a little busy these days. REALLY wish my orders from November would get here :(

Evol Ving Ness

omigoodness, still not here?

Sil

nope. Not even in Canada yet and both orders were sent out Nov 25ish.

Evol Ving Ness

Hmm, one day. Any day now.

My 11/11 orders atarted to arrive last week. If that gives you any hope. Surprisingly the worst were the end of October ones. They took almost 2 months. Hope it arrives soon for you!

Sil

Well maybe things will get here before the end of Jan then. This is the longest i’ve ever had to wait on anything from teavivre and YS.

Be glad that they were sent out before Chinese New Year’s descended on China. Ah, the bright side has been located. :)

Only one cup of tea today – had a very lazy day of sleeping for most of it – trying to kill this cold that i’ve got before it gets worse. Still loving this one…just one of those good cup of teas when you need it.

Evol Ving Ness

Hurray for sleep when you feel poorly! Hope you are on the mend now and are back to yourself very soon.

drank Cardamom French Toast by DAVIDsTEA

Latte tonight before dinner after a hike in the woods. I sprained my foot Jan 2, so i’ve been trying to get it back to 100% without too much stress. I refuse to let it keep me from getting back in to exercising and taking care of myself. I know it’s only 6 days in to the new year but so far so good – still maintaining my goals even with the minor dog trying to kill me resulting in a sprained foot lol. I think latte style of this one is my favourite. Helps cut the sugar in the tea, of which i wish there was less.

Final Count: 57

This was delicious today. I think steeping it a little longer helped as i’m still not in love with the spring harvest of this one. Good, but not my favourite harvest.

drank Organic Japanese Puerh by Butiki Teas

Pulled this one out of the cupboard today – figured it’s not the weekend but i can still have some puerh today. Did 3 steeps of this one today but that’s about all i want of this one for now. It’s nice o revisit some of these – this one has got a bold flavour profile that’s fairly unique to other things in my cupboard. Still lots left though!

Farewell delicious tea. I’ll have to try the autumn harvest when it’s around or just wait for next years. This is one that i’m sure will continue to rotate through my cupboard since it’s such a lovely tea.

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.
