wheeeeee! Moar tea! I’m not too sure why I’m so happy today but it’s a good day. One more day to prepare for my client meeting on friday and then it’s the weekend! Which of course will be full of testing and other work related things but it’ll be the weekend! And I can get groceries and spend the rest of the weekend drinking tea at home while i work.

Maybe if i get lucky I can get in one of the games we picked up in the pas 2 weeks that I haven’t had a chance to open yet sigh

Nik

Which games? :D

Sil

Belfort, tsuro, vivajava and brass (yay for that finally getting reprinted)

drank Black Cherry Matcha by Red Leaf Tea
4923 tasting notes

WHEEEEEEE!!!!!!! It’s tea day! not like any day ISN’T tea day but today just seems like more than usual. Also, my last note was my 300th tasting note so that’s super exciting. Not nearly as many as everyone else around here but in my head I’m really at 600 since I’ll do one tasting note for 3 cups of th same tea heh.

Anyway still loving this matcha and still REALLY enjoying my morning smoothies. Going to miss having one Friday morning…might have to actually have COFFEE to keep my awake during my all day client visit blech

Helena

congrats on 300 :D

Ninavampi

Congrats on 300! :)

Babble

No.. not the coffee. Tea all the way! Hehe.. just kidding. Congrats on your 300th tasting note. I should have more but I’m just too lazy to log ALL the teas I drink.

Sil

drank Blueberry Zabaglione by 52teas
4923 tasting notes

Cold Brew! wheee! So i have not one…not two but FIVE travel type mug things of tea on my desk at the moment. It’s great! Cold brewed this one last night to see how I like it. Only downside? It needs a bit of sweetner as a cold brew so i’ll have to go “borrow” some honey or something from downstairs to finish it off. Good times though, having fun cold brewing things :)

Cod brewed this for fun. Tastes about the same as hot brewed. Overall, not a favourite of mine but I don’t hate it :) just having fun cold brewing things lately.

Nik

Unpleasant but hilarious mental image of a codfish holding the tea in its mouth as it steeps… :D

Sil

LOL stupid iphone autocorrect. that’s awesome. so not editing my post :)

drank Raspberry Truffle by Butiki Teas
4923 tasting notes

Sipdown! YAY mostly because my Verdant order arrived today and I still have an incoming Butiki Order. So at least that’s one more tea package that I can say is gone…though there will likely be a re-order of this one in the future lol. As always really enjoying the delicate raspbery/chocolate balance stacy managed to achieve here. so tasty! Really looking forward to how she manages to craft the new blend from whomever wins the contest!

Indigobloom

How do you drink teas down so fast?! I can never get through them :/

Sil

I guess 3 months is fast lol. I focus on things when they get close to the bottom. Right now I have 10? That I’m focusing on ish…. So I try to have at least 1 a day of that smaller group. Tough keep in mind my ONE entry is equivalent to 2-3 cups. I fill travels mugs full of things heh.

Kittenna

She just doesn’t have as much tea as us. :P I wish my stash was more organized so I could take a pic of it so people could see how overboard I’ve gone… hahahahahahahaha.

Sil

I just have more self control :p

Indigobloom

soon as I get a few days off, at home, I am sorting through my stash and posting it! it’s odd, I have so many teas and yet I’ve only made a few orders…

Indigobloom

in the meantime, I can only handle two at a time. People at my office just don’t understand! bah!

Indigobloom

though currently I am drinking a big pitcher and tea from two mugs. plus my water :P

Sil

uh.. i have a water bottle… a cold brew in the glass tumbler, two travel mugs with different tea and my matcha smoothie bottle lol

Oh yeah BABY! Frank reblended this so now I can drink the stash I have in my cuboard instead of hoarding it. I bought 2 bags (first time ever for me) of this so that I’ll have lots to have around for a while. There’s just something about this blend that I love more than ANYof the other cheesecale blends that he’s had. It’s MUCH better than the caramel Cheesecake he did. oh happy day!!

tattooed_tea

I just noticed several re-blends on the site. I am holding out until he puts up the new blend before buying. However fearing I may miss out entirly on those I want!

Helena

hehe I ordered two bags as soon as I was told :D facebook is useful for that :D

Sil

I missed the blueberry struesal but caught the last marshmallow genmaicha.

Sil

I don’t know what you’re talking about Helena lol and yeah. I’d rather pay an extra buck and make sure i get the few that i wanted, than wait for the reblend to package it all up. heh

TeaBrat

I’m bummed that I missed the marshmallow genmaicha!

Sil

Amy – I think at this rate it’ll have to come back heh

drank Assam Gold by The Tea Merchant
4923 tasting notes

First cup of the morning! Once again thanks to the Tea Merchant for their generous sample! This is a nice cup for the morning. I was inspired by a comment made by kittena yesterday so I actually have a smoothie in a water bottle and two tea mugs full of tea lol. YAY for drinking it up in the morning! Especially nice since it’s a cool (but still nice) wet, rainy dark morning here in toronto.

This assam has a toasty warm flavourful taste this morning. A bit like a warm hug on a cold day, cuddled under the blankets listening to the rain patter on the windows.

Kittenna

What did I say?!

Sil

Uh something about multiple travel mugs for the lab that doesn’t have your office. Heh.

Kittenna

Ohhhh hahahahahaha :D

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.
