SIPDOWN! figured this might be a tea that would cut through the weirdness my taste buds are having today. This was decent enough and i thank joonsusanna for sharing it with me :) I’ll stick with other rooibos blends for non caffeinated teas but this was still a decent cup of cinnamon-ey/spicey tea!

I’m not sure if my tastebuds are off this morning so i’m going to with leave the rating alone. I’m glad i have enough for another attempt. It’s not a pleasant cup at all this morning, which leads me to believe that i’ve goofed on something because my first drink of this was pretty darn tasty!

I had this earlier today. While it’s a holiday here in Canada (except for Quebec), SOME of us were rudely awoken this morning to system issues that they have since spent the better part of this GLOIRIOUSLY fabulous sunny, summer day, dealing with. Yes. I’m grumpy. And this tea didn’t help. Not sure if my taste buds are off or something but it was bitter and icky. I’m hoping it’s a one off. If it continues, i’ll adjust the rating downward.


That’s unfortunate :( This is one of my all-time favourites. Hopefully your day picked up.

S I don’t forget, had a cup of this tonight..a single serving left before its all gone…. Wheeeee!

13 weeks until November… 221 teas less 150 over those 13 weeks is 6 sipdowns a week…. Assuming that between now and November I pick up NO new teas…which we already know isn’t going to happen since I have uh…teaspot, butiki, teavivre, verdant on their way and another butiki order as of yet to be placed…. But a girl can dream right? And scheme? :)

You can do it! It’s just one sipdown a day!

For a rooibos, I really like this one.

drank Laoshan Apothecary Green by Verdant Tea

Sip down! Cold brewed the last of this one to see if I like this any better…should have thought to add a bit of my stash of laoshan green to see if it helped cut through the coriander…but I didn’t. And so? It’s is not a tea for me. Blech. Ick. I’ll stick with laoshan green on its own please and thank you :)

This is a cold brew win with a bit of sweetener in my books….not so much without it :) another 52 tea for today in my continuing quest to sip them down! Lots left of this one but its tasty drinking it :)


Mmm, love this one.

drank Black Raspberry by Trail Lodge Tea

I cold brewed this the other night to see how it worked out. Seems that this is a tea better suited to hot brewing and then maybe cooling it off to drink cold. It’s not bad this way, but i prefer the hot brew i made the other day. good to know though as i do like this one from terri :)

Iced 8 min or more

drank Chai by Harney & Sons

Thank you fiddling! I made a cup of this today to help kick start my day. After yesterday’s cleaning and running around, we’re just hitting costco today and then maybe playing some board games to relax once we get home. We bought two new ones yesterday and there are a few in on the shelf we haven’t played through already. lol tough part is finding friends who are willing to come over and play a game for an hour or so…so sad!
However, since both my other half and i are only children, we have no issues playing through a game on our own with ephelant and helen the corduroy dinosaur. :)

This tea? not bad, though there are other chai’s i would drink first. I think this one might be better steeped in milk with a splash of honey so that will be the next way that i try it :)


We had family night for years, still do, but it is no longer game night. But when my son comes home, you bet we will be playing games. Do you play Settlers of Catan? That and Scrabble are two favorites, but UNO, Yahtzee, Phase 10, MtG, Monopoly, and many more are on shelf and enjoyed!


We play settlers, though less often since we have 50+ other euro games on the self. Still a good one though! My other half keeps telling me we just need to have kids and then wait 7 years lol


Nobody’ll play with me at home any more :(
(Yet another reason I teach fifth graders on Sundays—-weekly kid fix.)


Aw…gmathis…that’s sad! I have my other half…so we are gradually amassing a collection of two player games.

drank Morning Sun by Mandala Tea

So i’m pretty sure my taste buds need a health check this morning. This came across as a smokey tea…more like a cross between a keemun and a lapsang. I don’t think it’s been contaminated but i’m going to have to hold off on rating this until i can make another few cups heh

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.
