i was tired of “older” teas today so i pulled this one out and DEAR GOD….i’d forgotten that i really love this one…the chocolatey, malty notes were perfect and so what i wanted…a little like a poor man’s LB, since i don’t want to break in to YYZ’s teas yet and LB is so far away lol

Courtney

Hehe poor man’s LB.

apt

LB ships out in just over a week.

Sil

shipping to Canada is generally 10 days…so that’s far away :)

Lariel

Sil

apt

oh god….life saving tea today. it was an indescribable delicious tasty cocoa-y mess of goodness…that kept me from killing anyone.

note to anyone who is a people manager out there….if you have an employee who is doing 5 people’s jobs and kicking ass at 4 of them, do NOT tell them that a conversation needs to happen about that 5th job because it’s not being carried as well as the other 4 jobs…ESPECIALLY when that person is also doing 15-20 hrs of overtime a week to keep things going. grrrrr

yyz

Unfair….

Especially if you are not being renominated for it. One of my friends went down to part time at her job because she returned to school to perdue her dream of a PhD only to be basically still be doing her old job because the new hire either is too lazy to put in the work or does not have the skill set to do the job ( she apparently wants to build software by pasting and clicking from other peoples work).
Though at one of my jobs it was not so uncommon for people to be worked to the point that they were so exhausted that they would have car accidents leaving the parking lot.

yyz

Renominated was remunerated.

Sil

naw… i mean i get OT…but today was also a conversation about how legally i can only work 48 hours..so can they hire a contractor or someone to help me…to which i responded…sure if you want me to rack up more OT babysitting said contractor since i know you won’t hire ppl at the level i need them to work lol

yyz

True. If it’s not a long term position that they are willing to invest in training the person you are probably better off, just dealing with it.

Plus, if they give you an assistant, they’ll probably pile more work on too, just to make sure they’re getting their money’s worth.

OMGsrsly

Oh my goodness. ~hands you another cup of tea.

Lariel

This will be my next order from them.

This is another backlog from yesterday – i probably shouldn’t have had this one along side the ginger lime, because pear is a little more uted than lime in the grand scheme of things. I still quite enjoyed this one – the ginger isn’t as strong as i want it to be, though that may just be because i didn’t steep it for long enough. We’ll see how next time goes :)

Final Count: 116 (plus teas from yyz i hadn’t had a chance to add to my cupboard)

drank Ginger Lime by Bayswater Tea Co.
4664 tasting notes

backlog from yesterday as i needed some fruity teas after a long day of work. I really enjoy this one because it’s got a delicious tangy ginger zip to things! I still need to try this cold brewed, especially now that summer is in full force, but that’s a challenge for after moving!

drank Yun Nan Dian Hong Black Tea by Teavivre

I picked this one up at a teavivre sale and haven’t yet had a chance to open i and enjoy it. I think i meant to share this one with the ladies of the BBB Box, but now who knows what i’ll share – i do see that both of them haven’t tried this version yet so maybe there’s hope for sharing this tea! lol Sadly, i don’t recall much of my involvement with this tea today as i was distracted at work with trying to clean up some things urgently. it’s been a day. But i came home ON TIME mostly so there’s that…and the weather is nice so really…hard to complain :) More to come on this one as i drink it more!

drank Zheng Shan Xiao Zhong by Yezi Tea

I need to drink my yezi teas more often once i get my cupboard down in size and can rotate through teas more readily. I adore this one with just a splash of maple syrup…it always makes the world go ’round!

drank Cinnamon Cookie Puer by Lupicia
4664 tasting notes

This was one of my teas from this morning. I’m a little crazy busy this week but i’m still at least trying to find the time to drink my teas at work. I was hoping to get closer to my goal, but it looks like i’m going to just have to have my work cut out for me in June to get to 100. I have 4 swaps; 3 tea boxes and 2 orders coming in the near future so there’s no hope for me this month lol

I have enjoyed this tea a bunch, but i think i’ll still with cookie of brioche from ATR in future. It’s not that i don’t like this one, but the cinnamon is a little heavy for me…i’l like more cookie instead!

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.
