drank Combray by August Uncommon Tea

Had a cup of this later in the afternoon so say goodbye to it. The last of this is getting shared tomorrow at the tea festival so i figured why not. In theory this brings my cupboard down to 111, while my goal for this month was 120. Guess that leaves room for the samples i’m picking up tomorrow and possible tea purchases heh. This is a really nice green. I have to say, AU does a bang up job with their teas – making me like things i wouldn’t normally necessarily love.

Final Count: 111

Another from WP that i tried out today. Sadly work got incredibly busy but i do recall that it was a pleasant tea to drink while working. Better notes next time!

another tea from earlier today. i quite like this ceylon – super glad i read reviews and decided to risk it when i was in Paris. just a nice cup, though arguably better when i drink it in a mug versus travel mug.

this is a delicious cup. It reminds me a little of some of the TTC teas, with that sweet, almost honeylike profile up front….on the tail end i get more of an almost cocoa like, malty goodness. I am a fan of this one. I brewed it western today for a couple cups…next time i’d like to try a gonfu session as i think this one would work really well that way.

Finished this one off today. Was nice to have this in the cupboard and someday maybe i’ll be back.

drank Mango Turmeric by DAVIDsTEA

finished this one up tonight since i figured i should get my numbers down before the tea festival. I think i may have actually managed to hit both my number goal for January AND my weight goal. i think. weight is always a little tricky since i guesstimate until i have time to weigh it again but at least i’m on the right track. glad i picked up this one to try. it’s a really nice blend of spicy and mango and something a little different.

one of my other teas from today. delicious. I’m so sad that i’m starting to get to the end of this one AND i totally forgot to pick up french breakfast from holts this year…so once it’s gone, i’m SOL in the MF delicious black tea department for another 10 months or so. poop.
on the plus side? it’s snowing! here’s hoping it’ll keep it up all night so i can have snow day breaks tomorrow when i insist on working from home finally.

yyz

drank Jin Jun Mei (2015) by Verdant Tea

tea festival coordinating. a swap to be made, new tea friends to meet and A DAY OFF DAMNIT! that’s right, 12 hours today = grumpy Sil.

however, i have finally gotten to a point where i’m not watching TV on the way to/from work and i can relax enough to read again. So that is good news, since i have always loved reading but was just too mentally fried. Thank you Anne Bishop for getting me back there woot woot!

OMGsrsly

YAY!!! Reading is the best.

Sil

yeah… it’s been a while so i’m happy to be getting back to it. sadly it also means i just want to stay home from work and read my book lol

OMGsrsly

My problem is if I read after work, I’ll just read till I’m done… even if that’s 4am. I should start reading more on the bus. Right now I’m still in the All Fanfic All The Time mode.

CHAroma

Ironically, I’ve started watching less TV and reading more lately too! Maybe this tea has something to do with it? :)

Sil

haha that might be the case charoma!

Bio

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.
