Working from home today and as a result i decided it was time to finish off the last little cup i had left of the batch terri sent me to tie me over until my preorder arrives. cough guess uh…i should have had it slower? :) Cavo has a stash she may let me steal, so that might get me through to July, but this really is my go to tea on bad days. That’s not to say that i don’t love my other teas but this IS the tea i reach for when i want something comforting and easy that tastes great.

When’s the order supposed to arrive?

Sil

quarter past NEVER!

ugh.. it ships July 14, so add 10 business days and i’m looking at pretty much August 1.

Sil

I’m so desperate i ordered 1st picking LB (which miiiight get here next week or the week after) to tie me over even though i don’t love it as much lol

Sil

which is pretty stupid given how many teas i have that i could drink instead…. lol

Terri HarpLady

I should have sent you some more!

Sil

Hahaha not to worry, I’ll manage :)

Terri HarpLady

drank Ginger Lime by Bayswater Tea Co.

Today this was really nice. the peppercorns made it much spicier than normal so it was a happy time for me. Not as much ginger as i wanted, but given the peppercorns it still had kick. I need to remember to a) cold brew this tomorrow and b) add a little honey to see how that brings out the flavours.

Final Count: 182 [70 samples = fake cupboard at 112 with a week and a half to go! 1 tea from October left in my cupboard and 4 from December…not too shabby, figure maybe 110 by the time july rolls around at this rate heh]

OMGsrsly

Remember you have a parcel coming from meeee! :)

Sil

shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh so many samples to get through.. lol

drank Crème Brulee by Bayswater Tea Co.

sooo how do you make this tea taste even better? Mix it with “cream” from tea gscwe2nwhweriyw398y… that’s right. I did that today and it was deeeelicious. Adding the cream to this really brought out the creamier flavours and cut back on a little bit of the IN YO FACE that this tea has going for it sometimes. Overall, a really nice way to enjoy this tea as a non latte. :)

“tea gscwe2nwhweriyw398y” :P

Sil

Lol I hate typing it…but realized the other day tea G might be taken for something else

i’ve been sort of slackadasical the past week days in part because work has been crazy but also because getting the house in order has taken most of my energy between painting and shopping and moving things and cleaning and…and… and. so apologies for the crapp tasting notes as of late. I’m hoping that tomorrow i can spend some time with my tea and get back in to the groove. :) I’m sure things will get back to normal once i get the house in order lol

I love this tea a lot, though today i did NOT add maple syrup as i often do. I just wanted the tea..and it was my happy place today when i found out that a project that was closed has been reopened and hey….look! sill can do that! i need a new job. stat.

OMGsrsly

re doing the job of 6 people? Or is it 8?

OMGsrsly

O right, hearts. “So now you’re…”

mmm morning cup of tea that was just perfect. This isn’t my favourite teavivre tea but there’s something about this one that i really like as an average every day sort of 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.
