Once upon a time, we used to cherish a month called March. After a long and cold winter, we’d get all excited to see March arrive and bring along the promise that spring was well on its way.

Yes, spring, remember that? Used to be one of our four seasons…but nowadays, winter seems to be the only season left…On March 4th today, it’s freakin MINUS 20 CELSIUS!!!

Thank god I have this tea to remind me what spring season is like.

Mmmm, Darjeeling, with its fresh citrusy notes. A beautiful first flush this tea. Sweet but slightly astringent and very juicy. It’s what I call a sunny tea :-)

Thank you so much for sharing this “sunshine in a cup” with me Sil. Such a good pick me up on this cold winter day!

Haha it’s definitely coming in like a lion, I guess. It’s been raining constantly here, and on the cold(er) side. At least not -20!

Kat_Maria

I seriously don’t believe it will ever get warm.

Dexter

LOL it’s colder there than here today. Hope it warms up for you soon.

I know what you mean… On the other hand I saw a Robin today, good thing my neighbourhood has lots of bird feeders!

Fjellrev, I’ll take rain, hell, I’m not that difficult, I’ll take anything over this freezing arctic weather! The thing is I love winter, but enough already!

Kat_Maria, I sure hope you’re wrong, lol!

Dexter, the forecast was WRONG today, they actually predicted a “comfortable” winter day. Yes, comfortable for polar bears…mmmaybe???

yyz, really? But what if Mrs. Robin just leaves and goes back south thinking she’s got her calendar all wrong?

yyz

Poor thing! She just might. The front yard is looking a little like!e an intro to glaciology, formation of icepacks project!

Time to update this profile of mine…it’s 2015!!

I am French Canadian, so please forgive me if my English is not always perfect :-/

My relationship with tea in a nutshell:

I’m married to straight Black. I have torrid love affairs with Oolong and Puerh. I party with Green and White occasionally. Flavored are not my BFF, I usually stay away from them.

Love Steepster, a place for tea lovers, where you learn and share with others.

About me:

I am a free spirit, I let people be who they are and expect the same in return.

Books! I love classic literature, but also modern and pretty much anything that captures my attention.

Music is also something I can’t live without… From Bach to Nirvana, my ears know no boundaries…

Animal and nature lover, amateur photographer.

I’ve been drinking tea for as long as I can remember.

Drinking tea is a sensorial experience. The name in itself “Camellia Sinensis” lingers the promess of an adventure for the senses…

Not a big «swapper», but will occasionally. Not because I don’t want to share but because I’m trying not to hoard so much.

Also, I have narrowed down the teas I really like over the years, and I don’t feel the need to try and buy everything the way I used to. (Maybe I have become a tea snob? Sigh…)

My ratings: because I pretty much drink only teas that I judge exceptional, my ratings are usually high. Don’t be shocked to see lots of 90’s and a few 100’s. That’s because I’ve had my share of crapy teas and I’m done with that ;-)

You can find me on Instagram here, I post about my tea sessions mostly, but also about the beautiful nature that surrounds me, and my fury companions :-)
