Finished the last of this today since i SHOULD have my package in the nearish future with more of this. Stupid post office in the US decided it needed to keep my package for 3 weeks in customs. so much love for this tea…it’s like mousse au chocolat but with chestnuts. so excited to have a full 100g of this soon…..sooo sooon..

OMGsrsly

Ahh! Hurry up delicious tea! Here’s hoping Customs didn’t mess with your package too much!

omg.srsly?. yeah i did that. lol thanks for the share my dear…lovely to have this one back in my cupboard until i can afford to buy a tin. i’d forgotten just how much i love this one until i sipped it and went OH! :)

OMGsrsly

You got about half my tin there Sil! :P Thought I’d share the love since I’m such a slow tea drinker. :)

Sil

drank Caramel Pumpkin Cheesecake by 52teas

today has been a gloriously productive day at work, productive playing with the dog AND productive with tea drinking. this was another that i pulled out today to have. I still hold that while this is a lovely tea, it’s much more caramel cheescake than frank’s version. doesn’t make it a bad tea, just a different tea. but i’m ok with that :)

OMGsrsly

it’s like this tea is cursed in my house. Every time i drink it, i either over steep it or i drink it so quickly i don’tt really pay attention to it. I’m guessing that means it sits somewhere in the middle of the road for me haha. either way, a decent bold cup with a strong brassy note this morning because the rental dog made me over steep this one.

this tea is pretty boring for me. I mean, it’s a nice cup and i enjoy drinking it, but there is no “wow” to it. I’ll enjoy the rest of what i have but i can’t really see picking this one up again.

drank Paris s'éveille by Betjeman and Barton

gosh damn i love this tea. It hit all the right notes today since i managed to not only remember to brew it for longer, but also cooled the temp down a bunch. AMAZING how good tea can be when you don’t mess up the parameters lol. Glad to have tried this one, though not necessarily a repurchase for me since it’s a little fussier than others that i love just as much. today this was more like an 85 haha

tea from today – i’ve been slacktacular at steepster lately – still drinking tea but no time to really log things or read the boards… i managed to get down to 117 this past weekend, but with tea from friends, i’m sure i’ll be back up to 150ish once i get a chance to log them all :) Not really complaining though since sharing is caring, what goes around comes around…uh you get the drift (and they’ll get the tea!). haha i know many people hate this one but i always enjoyed it…getting down to the last of it that was gifted to me by keychange and variatea…yay for herbals and awesome tea friends though :)

VariaTEA

Hopefully DAVIDs comes out with another similar tea for you again…like Shirley Temple which was quite reminiscent of this

Kittenna

You have not yet matched me in the slacking dept ;) Thankfully, I am also drinking tea quite steadily. I just have a broken computer and still no time to log it, though I do miss Steepster.

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.
