Sipdown!
I have enjoyed this a lot, I did not have a ton left so I decided to mix a little of Verdant’s Laoshan Black in with this. I am definitely getting more at some point. There always seems to be too much month left at the end of the money, har de har har…

I was at the gym for 1.5 hours last night and am really sore – I hope to survive the day!

David at Verdant Tea and I are good pals so I think it is excellent that you combined one of my teas with his! Perfect! I hope he sees this post!!

Nice job on the workout. I hope you got some good stretching in, too!

Thanks G! I am trying to take good care of myself in the wake of relationship obliteration – boom… POW! Need to love myself now!

What I want you to do is to keep taking care of yourself no matter what you are going through :) Self-love is the absolute key to this whole trip, I am convinced. When we do that, we break down the barriers and realize that there is no separation. Loving ourselves is the very best thing we can do for each and every living being. Self-love transforms how we see all beings. Ohhhhhh…. yes….. Just began reading Tara Brach’s book “Radical Acceptance” – fantastic. You would adore it. Just a feeling I get :)

Bio

My profile pic is of a pink dahlia at Golden Gate Park.

Hobbies include: tea, making art, animals, vegan things, buddhism, nature, creativity, books, writing, cooking, meditation, yoga.

I am a fan of many different teas but my favorites are blacks and oolongs, chai, also like darjeeling and pu-erh. I’n always learning and expanding my horizons!

Dislikes include: bergamot, jasmine, highly tannic or bitter teas, overly judgmental and bitter people. :)

Live in San Francisco, I’m a SINK (single income, no kids) and love the urban life, but traveling out to the middle of nowhere is always fun too.

I tend to not drink things I know I will hate so a lot of my tea ratings are on the higher side. Here’s my rating system, sorta

95-100 I love this tea and would like to keep it around

94-90 An excellent tea which I may or may not repurchase

89-80 Pretty good, above average

79-70 Acceptable

69-60 Mundane – Will probably drink it if I have it

59-50 Ick

49 and below Nasty
