drank Laoshan Black by Verdant Tea
1693 tasting notes

I snagged 4 oz of the autumn version of this tea after feeling a bit anxious about the last of my spring tea getting sipped down. Now I’m pretty much at peace, enjoying the strong chocolate/barley notes, listening to Birdy on the computer, and watching the baby play with a box of Twinings Earl Grey tea bags. It seems like a pretty good kid toy, and I’m not worried she’ll wreck it.

We are off to Hamilton today to drop a friend (and the stuff we drove across the country for him!) so that’ll be fun – I haven’t seen much of Ontario yet. Maybe we’ll go the extra hour or so to Niagra Falls? Not sure if today is the day to do that, but I’ll be very upset if we move back to BC in a year and we haven’t gone, and we won’t once the weather turns. (Obviously). :P

Hope everyone else is having a relaxing Sunday.

Oh hey you’re only here for one year?!

Cavocorax

It’s one year for his Masters, then we have to figure out what we do next. We might be here longer? Or we might run back to BC as soon as we can. :p

Sil

Cavocorax

Awwww. :(
I’ll have to convince you guys to come west if/when we move.

I had no idea only a year was in the plans! I thought it was semi-permanent. Definitely make sure you do stuff within that year because it sure flies by.

Terri HarpLady

A year? Hmmm….I guess I need to plan a trip to Toronto so I can meet you girls all in one place sometime before you move again!

Indigobloom

Terri, yes, YESSSSS you do!! That’d take the sting outta having Cavorax here for only (potentially) one yr. Would SO love to finally meet you!! :D
(Incendiare, are you within driving distance? lol)

Terri HarpLady

Maybe next summer? LOL, if I can afford it! I guess I’d better go on a LONG tea buying hiatus! :)

Sil

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)
