backlog from yesterday. I was having issues with tasting some of the teas i tried in the morning, so i just reverted back to my old standby. As always, it didn’t let me down. Added a little cacao to this for an extra chocolatey experience and it was fantastic.

However things you probably shouldn’t do when you’re sicka dn on that line between getting more sick and getting better? spend the day at a friends gaming lol I’m more sick today but hopefully i can relax for the day since it’s a holiday here in canada and be ready to roll tomorrow. especially since i’m travelling next week for work and need to be functional!

I hope you have a good holiday and get some rest. Feel better! :)

Happy Simcoe day ( though I’ve been told that’s more a Toronto centric appellation). Best lots of rest and I hope you feel better soon.

i call it “i get the day off and my other half has to work day” hahaha

yyz

Poor soul:). I used to have to work most holidays at my old job too. However in compensation I usually only had to work 12 days Max sometimes only seven, if I bid properly:).

Hah. I just looked it upp – wasn’t sure what “Civic Holiday” was supposed to mean except, hey it’s August and we need a long weekend somewhere!

I’m off but without pay. :P I’d rather be working!!

Sil

Cavo – E calls this “banks suck day” since we get it as an official holiday and if i had to work it, it’d be double time and a half lol

Cavocorax

LOL – yeah bankers and gov’t employees are so lazy! :p

Sil

yep..thats me alright… slacktacular :)

My cousin has summer hours at her company where they get at least a half day up to a full day off on Friday. I thought that was nice until I heard of a company that puts her staff on summer sabbatical for close to two months.

Cavocorax

:P Yeah, you’re the exception?

having a bad tea morning. this one is bitter today but i know it’s just my stupid taste buds having a crap day. On the upside, it’s still an ok cup to get me gonig this morning, so no hard, no foul..but i’ll stick to tea i know doesn’t ever taste weird for the rest of today or until my taste buds seem to reset lol

MzPriss

I hate it when I get the bad taster days. I’m attempting a reset with Soba

i think my taste buds are off this morning as both cups of tea that i’ve had so far, seem rather bitter. I’m going to hold off rating this one for now until i can have it again.

drank Midsummer Night by RiverTea
5360 tasting notes

mystery tea! somehow this ended up in the shopping cart that cavo and i made and neither one of us can remember wanting to order it. So we split it and now we have a mystery tea lol This one is actually pretty decent. It’s a very lemon tea, which i’m ok with. I think it would be particularly tasty with a splash of honey added, so i’ll try that next time :)

Final Count: 101 (gotta watch that lol)

Cavocorax

I have to try it cold too!

backlog from last night – still enjoying this tea quite a bit. I just wish it wasn’t such a heavy tea. Even with resteeps it doesn’t got far. had this to wrap up the night in case the other tea i had wasn’t to my liking..but i enjoyed them both :)

another cold brew of this one. I really need to try this hot brewed before i get through it all. I’m glad cavo wanted to try this one, as i’m not sure i ever would have picked it up myself and i’ve enjoyed having it! :)

drank Root Beer Float (organic) by DAVIDsTEA
5360 tasting notes

totally made this as a latte when i got home from my trek to the mall. I may have splurged on an iced tea pitcher today as well as a few SMALL samples from david’s since it’s 15 % off with the pitcher purchase. I enjoy this one a lot. it’s not a tea i’d drink every day but when i want rootbeer…this is the one :)

OMGsrsly

Which colour did you get? I’m assuming you got the Takeya one, but I shouldn’t… :)

Sil

Blue :) the orange and pink one makes my eyes bleed lol

OMGsrsly

Haha. I love the eye bleeding colours. :D

Sil

i like them separately? not together… lol if it had only been ONE of those colours, not both, i’d have gotten one of those lol

drank Bourbon Barrel Puer Tea by J-TEA
5360 tasting notes

this was one of the teas in the BBB Box from the most recent round…sadly i still have some teas from the round before that to get cracking on! Thankfully, i can get back to that after my sample insanity from the past few months lol. This is a decent puerh. I’m going to have to go through a few more steepings today after i get back from the mall ugh but so far this is shaping up to be quite tasty! there’s a sweetness here, but also an earthy quality to it. Mostly though, this is smooth and really quite tasty. I’ll see how it holds up once i get home :)

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.
