I made a timolino of this today, except that I didn’t really. I think I turned my kettle off after putting it on as this water is barely warm. So the tea is barely steeped.

:(

I’m still trying to get in the habit of getting to bed at a proper time for work, but the kiddo stays up until midnight and I keep ending up with 6 hours. My poor brain! Next week will ( easier bc she’ll be up earlier for daycare, while her dad is in class.

I will make real tea when I get to the office!

I hope your sleep schedule sorts itself out soon. Working on not enough sleep really sucks.

Thanks! I’m sure it’ll work out.
Also I just successfully steeped Butiki’s caramel vanilla assam and am quite happy now.

Great choice! that tea makes me really happy, too.

I can’t function on less than 7 hours of sleep… but function better on 8-9. I am one of THOSE people. When I hear of people who only get 5 hours of less all the time, it makes me cringe

I used to be able to get by on 6 hours, but now that I’m getting old, lol, I need at least an average of 7.5 hours. I can do 6 hours once or twice a week, if I do 8 or more another night or 2 to make up for it. I’m really bad about staying up til 2am, my creative juices start flowing around 8 or 9pm. That’s why you never see me on steepster before 10am or later :)

God when I was younger I wouldn’t sleep for days and when I crashed I would sleep for like 12 hours. My body now whines if I dont get at least 7.5 a night.

Cavocorax

I did 6 hours a night for a long time bit it wasn’t enough, and it made me irritable, emotional and unable to remember anything. I can’t believe how much happier I was once I averaged 7.5+!

They say an extra hour of sleep a night would give ppl more happiness than 60,000 salary increase. Or something like that heh

Cavocorax

I believe it!

Shmiracles

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)
