Finished up the last of my bags of this. I am having a good time clearing out some teabags at work, though then I will need to get something in here to replace it. I have a mad desire to buy one of David’s Tea’s perfect tea mugs (http://www.davidstea.com/accessories/the-perfect-tea-mug) but recognize it as unnecesary. I just think it would make tea at work so much easier, since I’m always brewing for one. Maybe the beau will clue in and get me one as a semi-surprise someday : )

I hear ya on the mug. The fact those mugs come with a lid thrills me.

I’m hoping the beau decided to check Steepster today and read this…I’ve been hoping for weeks that it would come to him on his own, but I figuer a big prod might help. : )

We….have four >.> We love them. I’ve got a friend who swears by his at work. I think they are well worth the money! (Hint hint, beau!) I just couldn’t resist the pink spring one!!!

Nothing prods better than mysterious packages showing up on the door step…;)

They have a pink one? I didn’t see it on the website. :( I think we need some DavidsTeas here in the US. At least in Michigan.

I’m sure they’ll make their way down eventually. The rate of expansion for them is pretty surprising, to me at least. However, if tea really does become just the trend that major news media like to say it is, then they’ll all get shut down at some point too : (

It’s one of these, QuiltGuppy http://www.davidstea.com/what-s-new/2011-spring-collection-perfect-mugs We actually have all three of those, they’re so pretty!

Wink, wink, nudge, nudge, say no more, say no more, a nudge is as good as a wink to a blind man.

Thank you, ladykittyKat! I ordered two… The white with lime and the pink. And some tea… Sigh… Another package to smuggle into the house! ;)

Uniquity

I’m so glad I’ve encouraged everybody to buy more things! I want one for home and one for work, but I can’t deide on colours, therefore it’s not up to me. : )

Well, this needed refreshing. I have been drinking loose leaf for many years, and have fairly well nailed down my tastes. I love Chinese blacks and some other unflavoured teas. I occasionally drink flavoured teas, or herbals, but the bulk of my tea is unflavoured with no additives. I stock regularly from Teavivre with the occasional Verdant purchase and the odd re-stock at Davids. I love mint, am learning about the wide world of puerh, and prefer ripe to raw, so far. I don’t like green or green oolongs very much, white is okay and roasted oolongs are pretty good. Coconut and chamomile are awful, and I wish they weren’t in so many blends!

At home, I live with my husband and cat in a house built by my grandfather, which we love. We share many interests – books, tea, video games, board games, tv/movies. On top of that, I love crosswords and recently took up knitting again, so I’m having a hard time balancing all my passions at the moment. I’m a big fan of Doctor Who, as is my entire immediate family. I love spreading the Who love!

We also spend a lot of time with family, when we can. I’ve got a gaggle of younger brothers, and we like to spend time with them. The wonders of the internet allow us to spend time together even though some of them live a few hours away.

As for ratings, I try to only log teas once or twice because I drink a lot of the same ones repeatedly. My rating is based on my perception of the tea at first tasting and is adjusted if anything notable occurs in subsequent cups. I may also factor in the price and customer service but try to note that when I can.

81 – 100: These are great teas, I love them, regularly stock them or savour them as unique treats.
71 – 80: These are solid. I drink them, I like them, I may or may not keep them on hand regularly. This is still good stuff.
61 – 70: Just okay. I can drink it, but it doesn’t stand out to me. Might be lower quality, not to my taste, or outside my comfort zone.
41 – 60: Not likely to keep drinking…hoping hubby will enjoy!
0 – 40: No thank you, please. Take it away and don’t make me finish the cup.
