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 :)

other tea today that i drank up. Just wanted something a little different to shake things up and i haven’t had this in a few weeks. Plus, well you know…i wanted to. so i did. HA! so suck it cupboard! :) even though it’s coconut, i still love it…just a delicious tasty tea.

Final Count: 190 (including 39 teas yet to be added to the cupboard, but still in my house….)

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…

oh god….life saving tea today. it was an indescribable delicious tasty cocoa-y mess of goodness…that kept me from killing anyone.

note to anyone who is a people manager out there….if you have an employee who is doing 5 people’s jobs and kicking ass at 4 of them, do NOT tell them that a conversation needs to happen about that 5th job because it’s not being carried as well as the other 4 jobs…ESPECIALLY when that person is also doing 15-20 hrs of overtime a week to keep things going. grrrrr

yyz

Unfair….

Especially if you are not being renominated for it. One of my friends went down to part time at her job because she returned to school to perdue her dream of a PhD only to be basically still be doing her old job because the new hire either is too lazy to put in the work or does not have the skill set to do the job ( she apparently wants to build software by pasting and clicking from other peoples work).
Though at one of my jobs it was not so uncommon for people to be worked to the point that they were so exhausted that they would have car accidents leaving the parking lot.

yyz

Renominated was remunerated.

Sil

naw… i mean i get OT…but today was also a conversation about how legally i can only work 48 hours..so can they hire a contractor or someone to help me…to which i responded…sure if you want me to rack up more OT babysitting said contractor since i know you won’t hire ppl at the level i need them to work lol

yyz

True. If it’s not a long term position that they are willing to invest in training the person you are probably better off, just dealing with it.

Terri HarpLady

Plus, if they give you an assistant, they’ll probably pile more work on too, just to make sure they’re getting their money’s worth.

OMGsrsly

Oh my goodness. ~hands you another cup of tea.

Lariel of Lórien

This will be my next order from them.

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.
