My first tea of the day!

Everyone else is sleeping so I’m sitting with the baby watching the LAST episode of Downton Abbey and drinking dragon pearls. I still haven’t had my dragon pearl-off, but someday!

I have a feeling that I’ll need a comfort tea afterwards from what I’ve heard. :( 15 minutes to go, and I’m waiting for hell to break loose.

God, I love some of these characters so much. Even Mary, even though she’s so complicated. And stubborn.

I have yet to watch a single episode of this show. Maybe when winter comes & there is snow I’ll make tony a decadent breakfast & talk him into spending a day on the couch in PJs, watching every episode of the first season. Cuz that’s how we roll!

Sil

yes terri! yes!

Shadowfall

Let me know when you do have a dragon pearl-off since I’d love to follow along. One of these days I want to have one of my own. Lol.

Cavocorax

Terri – that sounds really awesome. :) I love devouring an entire episode at once.

I just realized that Season 4 starts to air today which is a relief because I don’t like how the last ep ended and need something else. But now I’m stuck waiting for each episode like regular people. :P I hate being caught up.

And will do, Shadowfall!

Terri HarpLady

Maybe I’ll join you guys on the pearl-off as well!

Most vendors’ dragon pearls are actually literally the same tea. No matter the retailer, 99% these things on the market are all made by Feng Qing Tea Factory in Yunnan China (the Feng Qing in the name), any minor differences you pick out will just be batch to batch variations, so get them wherever they’re cheapest.

Cavocorax

Really? I didn’t realize that! Maybe I’ll do a visual/smell test first to see if I can see any difference before I brew up a buttload of tea.

Shadowfall

Sansnipple – I didn’t realize that either. Kinda takes the fun out of it. Lol!

Terri HarpLady

I know they aren’t all exactly the same. Mandala’s pearls definitely taste & look different from thepuritea’s, for example.

Dexter

Mandala’s aren’t the same as these either.

Cavocorax

Hmmm… I always thought the Adagio and Zen Tea pearls were not as good quality as the others ones I’ve had too. I should go through and see how many types of pearls I have!

Sil

Cavo – i JUST found out the season started again tonight… heh so excited but yes… waiting sucks..that’s why i have like 10 shows i watch at the same time..gives me time to get a few episodes ready for when i want to do mini sessions of the show haha

Cavocorax

I’m happy you watch it too! I don’t know anyone else that does and I might need to vent or cheer or something!

We usually just blitz through seasons after they’ve all aired but Joe isn’t into this so I can actually keep up.

Amariel

I do love this tea. One of these days I will place an order for some.

Amariel

I watched the first couple of eps at a friend’s house who had netflix, but now I am not sure the best source at home to watch with. I don’t have netflix at home.

Cavocorax

It must have been American Netflix because I don’t see it on mine. I end up downloading the episodes, or borrowing the dvd’s from the library.

Terri HarpLady

Seems like they’d make Netflix the same for everyone… :/

Cavocorax

I think it’s to do with different regulations and licensing. Some of the Canadian broadcasters have rights to show movies/shows in Canada, and don’t want to sell/share it well Netflix. Red tape and bureaucracy are part of the problem, I imagine.

So our selection is much smaller than yours, but for some reason we get the odd show that you guys don’t get in the US. I think we had Walking Dead far sooner than you guys did, as an example. A lot of people I know us IP blockers or something to get US netflix, but I just haven’t bothered to figure it out for my PS3 yet.

Sil

i download my tv shows 100% legally….cough

Amariel

Yes, it was in LA when I was at the Gallifrey One con and I was at my friend’s house alone for a bit.

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)
