drank Jessie's Tea by DAVIDsTEA
1638 tasting notes

Another sipdown! I’m down to 106 now – not too shabby! This was nice. I’m always a bit nervous about lavender because I associate it with grandmothers and soap, but this was really good.

I just packed up 19 teas for my sister as a Loose-Leaf starter kit (with instructions, perfect spoon and perfect mug). I’m so excited and I hope she likes it. I tried to mix the traditional teas like Earl Grey and Assams, with all the fun flavoured ones that a lot of people start with. I hope it’s not too much. :| I will probably wait until Sil’s package arrives because I know she sent me some DavidsTea samples and some of those might be nice to pass on as well.

106 is nice, but I’m worried I’ll be up to 150 soon (which would be a record). I’m expecting samples from Jessiwrites, JackieT, Sil, TerryHarpLady, and Kittena, and I’ve got orders now from Verdant, Butiki, Steappe Shoppe, and Harney & Sons. And 52 Teas. Yikes. That sounds like a lot when you type it all out. I spaced it out though – that’s probably ALL I ordered this month.

That is a lot of tea coming your way! Awesome!! Btw, I like this tea too. Haven’t had it in awhile though….I should have a cup. :)

Cavocorax

Yeah. It’s a little out of control? (That’s the Steepster life!)

And yeah, I’ll probably restock some of this again. In a few months!

Sil

haha…and so the slide upwards begins…. i remember when i jumped from 100 to 150….and then it was suddenly 200 and then omg terri made me hit 300…. lol

Nxtdoor

Can I like this twice? Awesome post! I keep giggling. (Not a girly giggle though. Please!)

Cavocorax

Hahaha. :P I wish I could like commments!

Sil

you know your cupboard is just going to be worse when you get to toronto… especially if i sucker nxtdoor into joining the ordering craziness lol since that’s SIX! people to join in the fray :) Also…you should totally rent a place near ours lol

Cavocorax

Hahaha. I better get a job that pays enough to support this influx of tea. (Steven Smith order, anyone?)

Nxtdoor

Wow. Twist my rubber arm why don’t you? Cavocorax, Sil has enough tea loving neighbours. Move to Aurora. Is only 30 minutes north by car and ..I’m having a hard time converting these people up here. Plebs, I tell you. It’ll be nice to have you.

Cavocorax

I think my bf was thinking of one of the smaller communities (like King???) north where it might be cheaper to live and less crazy, and then we can take the train to TO for work/school.

Cavocorax

Oh – isn’t Aurora like one train stop away from King? :O
(And it takes me like 50 minutes to get to work now in Vancouver with transit, so the idea of taking ONE train is sorta appealing). How is Aurora?

Sil

haha actually the other girls are all in guelph – they just drive in for an hour. IB is somewhere in the boonies as well lol.

We’re at avenue/wilson and my other half takes the subway/bus to york for school lol just saying..

Nxtdoor

Aurora is beautiful. Growing. Pretty affluent. I don’t know about train, I don’t do train. I get around, as nature intended, in a car!

Nxtdoor

You could always come visit before you decide. I know this great 4 bedroom home where you can stay. One of the owners started drinking a lot of tea recently but she is severely allergic to cats.

Cavocorax

Thanks for the offer but we’ve got my Sister-in-Law in TO, so he’ll have somewhere to stay. I guess he’ll be there for 3 weeks doing Math Camp stuff at York and looking for a place, while I stay home, drink tea and pack! Hahah. (I’d rather pack than look for a place).

How long does it take him to get to York from where you are Sil?

Cavocorax

Also, what does he do at York? (curious)

Sil

He’s doing computer networking technology thingy whatever lol. This is like his third degree so that’s it! He’s cut off after this one so that I can have babies ;)

He says it takes 40mins tops to get to school from where we’re at…which can be a bit long if you’re one of those people who hates a commute. Me on the other hand, as long as its less than 60 mins I’m good. It’s book and tv time :)

Nxtdoor

Hah. I have a Math BSc, from York! Yay York :)

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)
