sipdown! I am falling behind, BUT i managed to travel for work and NOT buy more tea even though i did find some lol. I had the last of this today in an effort to have a cup that could kick me into action. it didn’t work all that well. I did really enjoy this in the morning though, as it was a little cooler than normal :)

I’m gone until tues night on business so i’m trying to get in a few cups of tea this morning before i need to head to the airport. I’m going to be behind in my sipdowns as a result so i need to get at least a couple in! Technically i only need to get to 90 this month, but i’m pushing hard for 85 heh given september’s insanity. Plus i have a sneaking suspicion that terri is going to be exploding things for me in short order :)
While i enjoyed this one, today it fell a little flat. I think that maybe i need to really be paying attention when i do a session with this tea. Thankfully, it was still a delicious cup and got me through the early morning hours.

drank Minto Oregon Grown by J-TEA

Another selection from the BBB Box from tastybrew! This is an interesting tea – the leaves are all over the place and dry, they small slightly sweet. brewed, this makes for a cup of tea that reminds me more of a juicy green, sweet tea than a black tea. It was an intersting cup for the morning. Glad i have more to play with and enjoy! :)

drank After Dark by Steam Tea House

I needed a cup of delicious tea after the last cup. So even though it’s late and i’m falling asleep in my chair, i’m having a cup of this. A great contrast to the sweet licorice taste in my mouth. blech. I like this tea a lot…too bad i didn’t think to make it a latte tonight heh.

Final Count: 106 (21 left to go in 7 days – 2 of which i’m not really here)

…and another one bites the dust. I think i’m finally calling it quits permanently on the verdant blends club. I resubscribed at the promise of vanilla and the box has disappointed. I still have 2 to try, but neither one is peaking my interest and this one is awful. While i don’t mind licorice – there is too much of that in here and it makes for a sickeningly sweet lemon like brew that has a terrible after taste. I tried really hard to drink this but i just can’t.

I was also disappointed. :( The tieguanyin is pretty good, though.

drank Taurus by Nina's Paris

I’m tired of this tea. So it’s going in to my swap box.

It’s not that it’s a bad tea, but i never find myself wanting to drink it, and it’s got too much of that woodsy sort of rooibos taste to it that i don’t like. If this had just a little more strawberry flavour it would be perfect. Without it though, it’s not for me.

drank Pure Vanilla (organic) by DAVIDsTEA

finished the last of this tonight – trying to drink up a few of the herbals/caffeine free teas that i have in the house. I’d be willing to pick this one up again just to have a vanilla tea to be able to blend with others. I just don’t think i’d drink it on it’s own too often.

mmmm had a cup of this today in the evening since i’m trying to relax and de-stress a little before the week starts up again. On the plus side, next weekend is along weekend, so that will be nice :) i am a fan of this tea, even with the rose. it blends really nicely and the chamomiles makes for a nice was of subduing the rose, while still letting it be in the tea. thanks angel for sending this one my way!

gross. i grabbed one of these in teabag form the other day when i was in chicago. Of all the teabags, this one was the worst. lol. This has a veyr artificial and floral sort of aroma, and brewed it’s just artificial and awful. I didn’t finish drinking it.

Ick, I made the mistake of grabbing a bag of this one from a restaurant too. Hibiscus yuckiness. :(

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.
