Sipdown!

(While I’m drinking Verdant’s Autumn Harvest Laoshan Green in my other tumbler, I’m trying to use this one for sipdowns so I can alternate between trying a new tea, and finishing off the last of some old!)

This was really enjoyable. It’s so sweet and chocolatey and mmmmm. I love raspberry chocolate. It makes me think of these fancy Godiva chocolate bars we used to buy when I worked at Chapters and had a 30% discount. (Those days were great, but I didn’t make a lot of money as a lot went back to Chapters every week…)

I probably shouldn’t be drinking sweet teas like this before I’ve had anything to eat, but the baby got me up at 6, and everyone else will probalby sleep in until 11 or so, and I don’t want to make more noise than I can help while in the kitchen. Priorities = tea. Food later?

I have so many loose samples everywhere – I’m going to copy Sil and spend some time reorganizing it all today! I packed up so many samples to Courtney yesterday and it made room in some of my boxes, so maybe it won’t look so chaotic!

I think loose samples are the bane of any Steepsterite’s existence. (Is that the correct term?) I haven’t done many swaps, but most of my teas are sample sizes!

I’ve done so many recently that most of mine teas are close to sample size. So much variety. So little tea (by weight).

Also, I totally think we’re Steepsterites!

I’ve used the term Steepsterites for awhile now, LOL.
Cavo, I often have 2 teas going, one in a gaiwan, & something else in a cup, OR sometimes 2 contrasting Gaiwans. :)

Bio

Tea: I just started drinking loose tea in the fall of 2012, and once I started I had to get more and more and try ALL THE TEAS. Joining Steepster made this worse/easier.

So far it seems that I prefer unflavoured black teas, although I still drink a few that are flavoured each day too. Oolongs, greens, puerhs and white teas are all very good, but I just don’t crave them as often.

Yet.

Me: Ok. Random things. I like animals, I have a baby girl and a devoted bf, and … I’m a geek. I like Lord of the Rings, Sherlock, Doctor Who, Game of Thrones, Supernatural, pen&paper RPG’s, online RPG’s, video games, silly internet memes, puzzles and a bunch of others things! I taught myself to knit and I’m considering crochet but I need to make time for all these things!

Ratings:
1-50: Bleh.
51-64: It’s ok.
65-75: It’s good.
76-85: It’s very good. (Buy 1oz+)
86-100: Amazing. (ALWAYS re-stock)
