I’m not sure if this is the right listing or not, but it’s a jin jun mei from ken lee, so… probably?

So… all fun times must come to end. My husband went to the store to pick up a few things and on reentry to our drive way, somehow hit a big pipe and we sprung a massive outdoor water leak. There is now an ice rink in the street in front of our house. My husband isn’t alway so calm in these situations so it was a bit, how should i put it, um, yeah, it was loud.

I thought at least it was outside not inside, so there’s that! Anyway, it took about 20 minutes of digging in the snow to find the water shut off for that area. The water is no long flowing into the street. I’m now inside, taking some deep breaths, drinking this tea, and playing play doh.

I like this tea. Very grainy and chocolaty. Glad it was my post crazy water pipe breaking tea.

Now back to enjoying the snow. Please. No more craziness!

Glad you found the shut off what a nightmare! We’ve been having a real winter this year,ranging from the ice storm and kids skating on the street, to so much snow people were cross country skiing on the sidewalks. My cousin’s happy they have a huge backyard and like to put out an almost NHL standard rink in the back. Glad you like the tea the other one has more of a reddish tip and is more caramelly/ corn syrupy.

I love tea. And I love beer. I spent my twenties thoroughly enjoying all that beer has to offer but now that I’m into my thirties and a stay at home mom of 2 little kids and 1 big kid, I spend more time enjoying tea.

I joined steepster in Feb 2013 and it’s crazy how much my tastes have changed since joining. Before, I liked cream and honey in all teas and loved mostly dessert blacks. Now I almost rarely drink them, but enjoy them from time to time. What I love more than anything are straight rich black teas, Fujian, Laoshan, Rizhao, etc… I also love pretty much any black tea that the little leaf hoppers have gotten their teeth on.

I’m still not too into the green/white/oolong varieties. I keep trying to but my tastes are evolving pretty slowly on that front.

Overall, I just enjoy tea. Something about it that just settles me.
