backlog!

Last of this finished up yesterday while the other half and i got in a tv show and dinner. I try really hard to make sure that even if i’m working like nobody’s business during the week, i shut down on friday at a reasonable time, and spend a relaxing evening with my other half not thinking about work. I may get up at 7am the next day to finish work but i need that evening to take time to reconnect with him and just unplug from all the work frustration. So this + tea AND to bed “earlier” than i have been, means i may survive this weekend lol

this is almost done, so i think my next cup of this should be on it’s own again so i can have a reminder of whether i want to pick this up again in a few weeks…august is almost here! (not that it means much if i can’t get my cupboard down) i mixed this with cremem brulee from bayswater and loved it! as usual heh

nom nom nom. I’m still finishing up the last of this that courtney sent my way when she found the smokey note too much for her. And every time i have this, i seem to be closer to approaching the point where this might be another favourite from verdant and need a bump up because i gulp this down every time i have it – with or without a splash of maple. So thanks again courtney cause i am loving this, and should have another 4 oz in tomorrow lol

I just got some of this for the first time and tried it this week – I like it a LOT

Sil

im’ hoping the new harvest will be as delicious – may do a comparison when i pick up the new from mail jail lol

If what you have is better than this new one – you are fortunate. I really like this one and I accidentally ordered it twice (comes from having a disorganized cupboard and not knowing what you have) and I’m really glad now. It’s good

Sil

i’ll let you know haha

backlog from yesterday…going to be a long weekend. I’m up “early” and i’ll basically be up now until whenever i go to bed on sunday night since i’m not sure if i’ll get a nap in there. Gotta love migration weekends + catching up on work. at least i might get the chance to get some tea drinking in tonight! i remember pausing at some point yesterday to really focus on this tea and i can’t recall if i thought there was a note in here that i really liked or what. that’s how busy my days have been. but i did enjoy it, and thankfully i have more from omgsrsly to play with heh

drank Roasted Almonds by TeaGschwendner

I did a cold brew of this one and i think i like it a little better than the hot brew because some of the sweetness gets over taken by the sour…so it’s just a little more refreshing :)

I had this one today for fun but added a tsp of “cream” to it just to see how that affected the tea. On the whole, it made it slightly more rich tastes, but also sweetened it a little, which in the case of this tea is not my preferred way of drinking it. However, still delicious enough to be happy about today!

I wonder how this one would be if it were brewed strong, & then mixed with a little ‘milk’ & served as an iced latte…

Sil

hmm i’ll try to remember to try that

i had this one today as a way to jump start my day after yesterday’s super long day with not enough sleep. it was the right choice. I’m so happy my pre order SHOULD be here tomorrow as it’s in mail jail at the moment :( but thanks to terri and cavo i made it… woohoo!

If I’d known my parents had a new water purifier, I’d have brought some of this with me to FL.
Hey remember last year when I was down here & we placed that crazy tea spot order?
:D
That was SO much fun!

Sil

haha yes it was!

MzPriss

Yay Terri – your parents got a water purifier!

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.
