Finally getting in to my package of this tea. I ordered it after trying it and i’m happy to say that this doesn’t disappoint. Malty, smooth deliciousness. This is exactly what i needed today. So many things to do, not enough time. Even though my other half is no longer going to be staying in a hotel while working, he’d gone before i wake up for the next two weeks and not back until i’m basically in bed. It’s a little rough – hard not to be able to have him around to talk with in general and then add to that all the wedding stuff going on…but we’re making it work. I’ll be happy when we get somewhere close to normal again though. Dinner for 1 is lonely! haha

Sucks but you will miss each other more

Absence makes the heart grow fonder, or was it absinthe? Yes, it was absinthe, I think. Pretty sure …

I spent the first 12 years of my marriage working away and coming home at weekends. It’s tough but you learn to cope. Telephones helped then and Skype helps now.

Sil

ouch. 12 yrs is a long time. we’re doing ok so far…just glad we don’t have a dog or kid at the moment until we find our routine heh

the more i drink this, the more i love it. I seriously want more of this one before it goes away. There’s just something about the blend of coconut and fruit that has me enjoying this one during the summer, both hot and cold brewed.

I pulled this one out the other day because i wanted a little french love. I really enjoy drinking the teas that i picked up from paris, it’s just that due to the hot weather, it’s hard to be all about those creamy flavours that i adore in the winter. It’s like ice cream…i always want it in winter, but in summer i prefer popsicles haha. This is still a great tea – vanilla and then in to that hazelnut sort of love. yum.

also had this one the other day…slowly working through my teas. I don’t love this one, but i don’t hate it. It’s a pretty middle of the road tea for me.

Final cup of this one the other day. I’ve enjoyed this one, but not sure that i need to restock it. There are others that i prefer, though it might be worth ordering more in future once we’re in to the 2015/2016 harvests to see if that makes a difference :)

i don’t have time to wax poetic on this one, but rest assured this will be purchased AGAIN, as the last little bit of my sample is going in to Terri’s box of doom. hahaha. I really enjoyed this one and can see myself drinking it fairly often.

Final Count: 98 (woot woot!)

another one from raritea for once i got some drinking on while at home haha. this was a tasty refreshing cup earlier this afternoon. Great thing was that i got ZERO jasmine from it – was a little worried with raritea’s note. It’s not as juicy as some whites that i’ve had, but it was a welcome addition to the afternoon. Always like trying new things :) thanks raritea!

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.
