Youngest was quite alarmed this morning when I told her we are out of the Teavivre sample of Lapsang tea. Before she passed out from palpitations at the thought of having to do geometry without Lapsang, I remembered that I have a tiny bit of this tea left, perhaps enough for two pots. I bought it over two years ago before she knew that she loved lapsangs, so she has never tried it.

“This is AWESOME!” was her reaction. So thankfully we have a tea to finish the school week and then what? I have a tiny bit of Baker Street left, and a little Hunan Golden Tips, which are pretty smoky, so hopefully that will tide us over until a new tea order can get here.

She loved Teavivre’s Lapsang so I will probably get that, but I am toying with trying Lapsang Souchong Black Dragon by Upton, which I have never had, or Harney’s plain Lapsang. Their premium Lapsang, like this one, is too pricey for every day school drinking, as both this one and the new one are about $12 an ounce.

This is a premium Lapsang, with a premium base, and it shows. The tea is almost chewy it has so much body, and it is also naturally sweet. I am sure the new ine is just as good, but I think I had better find a cheaper option since she will be drinking it in great volume!

I am adding a link to a photo of the doodles I got on her homework today. Just FYI, there were never such doodles on her Algebra!

Want to try some of my Happy Lucky’s LS. People like it and it’ll be online soon.

Bonnie: That would be great! Look in my cupboard and see if there is anything you would like to try! I will PM my address.

Hesper June

Oh, No! Passing out and palpitations will not do!
You should buy her tea by the pound:)

Azzrian

That is awesome she loves it so much! A new LS girl has arrived! :)
Get a sample from Uptons and get more of the stuff she already loves. :) No reason not to have both!

Gnarg. I’d be doing worse than gnarging if I had to tackle algebra again :)

Uniquity

Did geometry put her on fire? I love those doodles…though I’m sorry she doesn’t seem to be enjoying the geometry! : )

Hesper June: I do have to buy Harney and Sons Vanilla Black by the pound! Now that she is taking geometry she wants something a bit stronger in the morning, but I really am going to have to buy a good bit at the time. I foresee her drinking a lot of this. Those doodles aren’t boding well. :)

ashmanra

Ubiquity: I suppose so! Notice the devil geometry book gloating on tool of the box! Heehee. She is a hoot. She maked to make similar doodles on her sister’s schoolwork because her sister was convinced that some of the books actually hated her. This is the first time I have seen the doodles with youngest as the victim! LOL!

Angrboda

Gosh! That was quite a scary prospect! In that case I must remember to get your address when next I stock up on my favourite LS (AC Perchs). I should like her (and yours) opinion on it. :)

Bio

I am a music teacher and homeschooling mom who started drinking loose leaf tea about four years ago! My daughters and I have tea every day, and we are frequently joined by my students or friends for “tea time.” Now my hubby joins us, too. His tastes have evolved from Tetley with milk and sugar to mostly unadorned greens.

We have learned so much history, geography, and culture in this journey.

My avatar is a mole in a teacup! Long story…
