Finally back from vacation and can start organising my tea. I finished this one up while on vacation and it was thoroughly enjoyable. I’m sure it’ll be back in my cupboard at some point.

Final August Count: 81 Weight: 4540 (about 560grams ahead of my goal! but 6 over my goal in terms of numbers….i’ll take it!)

Finally back from vacation and can start organising my tea.

:)

Sil

yeah well i had 3 boxes sitting on my table when i got back haha

Evol Ving Ness

Do you organize it by category, age, or flavour, or something else?

Sil

it’s more getting my spreadsheet updated….the actual physical cupboard i’ll do on the weekend. I have a sample area…then it’s pretty much a shelf for unflavoured blacks, a shelf for flavoured blacks, one for “overflow”/to be opened later, one for herbals….one for puerh…

Evol Ving Ness

Shocking that you manage to fit in a full-time job, Sil. :)

Evol Ving Ness

I am starting to think that tea needs special furniture at my place too.

Sil

i have an ikea bookcase (kallax is the new one) and have put a couple baskets in 2 of the squares that hold my “tea shipping” stuff, so envelopes, tea waiting for pick up from friends, waiting to go out etc… 3 squares have doors on them for my puer and to keep some of the mess tucked away. 3 are open for nicer tins to be visible. then there’s a shelf in the living room that has my tea pots/cups etc on display.

Evol Ving Ness

Wow, just wow. A sensible approach, far more sensible than the small c chaos going on here. I recall a thread here with tea people posting their tea storage arrangements. So many approaches to this. Thank you for sharing, Sil.

How does YS compare to Verdant? I saw it on their website and was tempted.

Sil

i like them. you need to factor in shipping from a cost perspective, but i’m leaning towards making YS’s versions standard in my cupboard. i did a comparison last weekend of a couple of them

Ubacat

It’s a lot cheaper than Verdant’s and YS has loads more selection when ordering. So if they are that close , I would probably lean toward YS too. I’ll have to order some and see.

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.
