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!

Still love this one. Pulled this out today in light of the free shipping coupon. On the upside, i can use it until June, so i can save it up for a purchase in the future where maybe i pick up a limited edition tea + black sunshine. AND i can work on drinking up some of my other teas from DFT (red tailed hawk, keemun, double knit, tiger, holiday, oktoberfest…..) heh

(oh yeah, thanks for putting this in my cupboard again nicole/omgsrsly…going to share some with cavocorax this weekend!)

OMGsrsly

OMG. You have… all their teas? Except the EG?

Sil

I don’t have caravan either at the moment…or the EG yeah

OMGsrsly

The only ones I’ve tried are the ones I have. :D

Sil

Used me a Facebook pm of whatever I have that you haven’t tried. I’ll set some aside

Sil

Wow autocorrect. Send me not used me

OMGsrsly

Everything. :D I have Tiger Assam and Black Sunshine.

Sil

SEND ME FACBEBOOK PM. sheesh. like i’ll remember here…over there i’ve got a little red number to annoy me until i pack them up

tigress_al

Which one is your favourite (since you have almost all of them!)? I wanna order but have never tried any…and shouldn’t order ALL of them lol

Sil

if you’re trying to take advantage of the free ship coupon but don’t mind waiting, i can send you samples when i get my bags in the mail…

tigress_al

You are awesome Sil! I would really appreciate that, so I don’t have to buy ALL THE TEA lol. And I can definitely wait.

Sil

I didn’t have much luck with this one yesterday – just didn’t do anything for me but i’m not sure if that was just my mood and the kinda of day i was having or what. Tasty, but not as incredible as that first time i had it.

Another tea that i’m nearing the end of. Sadly that means i’m down to only a couple fruit teas in my cupboard so i’ll have to try and remedy that. Still enjoy this one for what it’s worth. Not knock your socks off but a really nice juicy flavour to it.

noms. Had this one yesterday – I’m nearing the bottom of my tin, which is sad but also okay given the fact that i have another 4?5? tins of other damn fine teas that i can move on to drinking. Love this one with a little maple syrup, makes for a comforting every day cup.

juliebeth

MAPLE SYRUP? to sweeten tea?
you just blew my mind.

off to make tea to sweeten with maple syrup

TeaExplorer

I’ve tried honey, but not maple syrup. Will give it a shot :)

OMGsrsly

It’s really good, especially in teas that have a bit of a smoky flavour. Or a lapsang souchong. :)

Sil

i don’t sweeten my teas as a general rule, but smokey ish sort of teas + maple syrup (just a little) make me happy.

tigress_al

Mmm yes, maple syrup is so good in certain tea! Now I want maple syrup…

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.
