Sipdown! I needed something to balance the minty from my previous tea. I’m going to be passing on the last of it to my parents for their tea package. I’ll have to reorder this one once i get through a few more of my teas :)

Nicole

One of the best things about stash reduction – you get to order more!!! :)

Sil

Nicole…while that’s true, omg do i have a metric crap ton of tea that i haven’t even tried yet! i’m pretty sure what’s in my cupboard that i’ve tried is less than what i haven’t.

Indigobloom

Ha! not to mention the two ounces of tea per one that you haven’t tried from Kally. EEEEP!!!

Sil

yeah but that’s all logged in my cupboard at least lol

On the 10th day of christmas tea swap, KeenThyme gave to me this shimmering minty cinnamon tea!

This is really interesting (and tasty)! I’m surprised at how the cinnamon blends with the mint – it’s not a combination i would have really thought about. I really like this one KeenThyme! It’s a great tea for the holidays!

KeenTeaThyme

Glad you liked it! I was happy the cinnamon bark was stronger than plain old ground cinnamon. :)

Sil

yeah. I’m saving some of this so my other half can try it later. I really enjoyed this one…and it sparkles! haha

Wheee! It’s a good morning when you can find the time to down a bunch of tea to take a few moments to relax while organising your tea cupboard…. Yes come later this morning, my tea cupboard will be organised and my steepster cupboard will be completely up to date. Presents will be wrapped, house will be clean and i’ll have time to run over to buy myself rubber boots, pick up groceries and any last minute items before my parents get here this afternoon/evening!

This tea? i, sharing with my parents as well. Given that i have 4oz, I’m thinking i can spare a bit :)

drank Marrakesh Orange Spice by Majesteas

Backlogging from yesterday.

While I was browsing Majesteas for some ideas, I tried a cup of this tea. THIS is what I want Della Terras orange spice teas to taste like. There is a great blend of orange and spices that mix together to let both roll over your tongue. mmmm tasty!

Indigobloom

Oh man that sounds good!

Sil

It’s mighty tasty! I just hate the sizes there, so unless i can find it in their double sample packs, I’m not likely to pick it up unless we do a split lol

Indigobloom

Does he not do samples anymore? I remember getting samples of a bunch of his teas one time…

Sil

i asked, they said no. They have 50g? bags that are bundled together for 10$ but other than that no. oh and the guy? rob. lol

Indigobloom

I’ve met Rob, nice guy. But I think it was Ian, the other owner, who gave me the samples heh

THIS is the hardest tea to part with since its one of my favs from Stacy. BUT, it’s all for a good cause…if my parents love the teas then maybe they’ll place larger orders with Stacy that I can have some of lol

Sip down! Another tea for my parents tea package….I’m going to be hopped up on tea in no time flat trying everything before I decide whether my parents are getting it. They’re pretty picky but should enjoy this one a bunch since Stacy’s got a great thing happening here :)

Sip down because the rest of this is going to my dads tea package for Christmas. They finally want to get away from red rose so I’m putting together a giant tea package for my parents to try a bunch of things. :) ill miss you tea! Likely not a reorder though because Stacy has others that I love oh so much more!

Soooooo had a cup of this in an effort to wake up. Turns out it didn’t help and I’m falling asleep at my desk. Tme to get some sleep for a long day tomorrow lol.

Tasty lemon tea to end me off to bed.

Bonnie

You must REALLY be tired!!!

Sil

Haha. Yeah I was apparently beyond exhausted. Fell asleep maybe 30 mins after this one :)

drank 9 Ladies Dancing by Alphakitty
4673 tasting notes

on the 9th day of christmas tea swap, Alphakitty gave to us…some delicious toffee and a custom blended tea. I’m going to have this one again when i’m not so exhausted as i’m pretty sure i goofed on the steeping. I really did enjoy getting to try a new tea out – especially since it’s a custom creation! I’m not quite ready to tackle that kind of amazingness myself :)

Thank you Alphakitty!

Alphakitty

This one is pretty forgiving on time (not so much on temp), and should be good for at least 3 steeps if you do mess up the first one! I tried to include a lot since I know whites can be finicky

Bio

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.
