In case you were wondering…

1) steepster is awesome – you all deserve a kickass YOU ROCK! from everyone in your lives..
2) My tea sister terri made this weekend full of moving and other assorted crap, the best time ever. Lots of mail this week that was like getting cupcakes and fresh gelato for free! and then terri came along and made this tea the icing.

My beloved LB is here again to tie me over until my order gets here. I have a feeling i’ll be blowing through this like nobody’s business but thank you so much terri for the thoughtful accompaniment to the BBB Box. :) I really do appreciate it.

(so of course i’m having it today while i work and move and clean when all i want to do is go for a ride on my bike..in the sun….)

Who loves you, baby?
Yeah, that’s right! I got your back!
LOL
I hope there is enough in there for more than one steep! Enjoy!
And have fun moving!!

Finished this one off today in latte style. Still loving it and still a fan! On my reorder list for sure as i love the blend of chocolate and coffee in this one.

so cold brewed? awesome! I added just a splash of sugar to this one and it’s like drinking a delicious pear drink. The only down side? the ginger has smoothed out more and it’s mostly not there. Still though…this will be super tasty in summer on bike rides. glad i took a chance on it when in Vancouver.

Final Count: 217 teas (still a few inbound as well…holy….)i foresee many, many, new tea tasting notes in my future lol maybe i WILL make it to 2000 types of teas by July lol

morning flavoured tea! I’m a little busy this evening trying to pack up a few things here and there and uh sort through all the teas that have landed in the past couple of days. I have a feeling my cupboard is going to be crying for the next couple of weeks as i won’t have time to drink much tea or get it organised. I really want to cold brew this one before i finish it all up. it’s a lovely lemon tea – again still not sign of the pastry side of things, but i’m ok with that. I’m just curious as to how it will brew up cold..since i do love lemon drinks..

I believe this one is scheduled for sipdown tomorrow.
Until I buy some more!

had this again today because, well YUMMY! i did forget to mention the other day that this was sent to me by the lovely courtney as i feel like credit should be given where credit is due. Seriously, i am a fan of this one…i think i liked this version of the tea better than zhu rong harvest that i had…though typically i think it’s been the reverse. :)

morning tea….seriously..my cupboard is exploding at the seams in the midst of attempting to move apartments…this was tea this morning in an effort to at least try to keep up with ONE of my 2 tea goals… it’s not working very well… the updated count for today is likely over 200…. eep! Still enjoying this one a lot, but i really do want to make sure that going forward, i’m only getting the smaller sample sizes from TTC so that i can drink them up faster :)

Neener neener :)

Actually, I feel that I exercised great restraint on the box this time. I think the only thing extra that I sent to you was the LB, & that was to ease your suffering :)

i was tired of “older” teas today so i pulled this one out and DEAR GOD….i’d forgotten that i really love this one…the chocolatey, malty notes were perfect and so what i wanted…a little like a poor man’s LB, since i don’t want to break in to YYZ’s teas yet and LB is so far away lol

Courtney

Hehe poor man’s LB.

apt

LB ships out in just over a week.

Sil

shipping to Canada is generally 10 days…so that’s far away :)

Lariel of Lórien

What is this LB of which you speak?

Sil

laoshan black :)

apt

ah, I feel your pain. I ordered some tea from Jing Tea Shop and they said it would ship in July…

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.
