Finished up the last of it yesterday and re-steeped it for my morning cuppa. I’m about 500 points away from a ten dollar gift card to Verdant tea so I’ll be grabbing 2oz for sure!

… in June. I’d better wait until I get my first paycheque!


I just bought some myself. :)

I made this as an after dinner tea, but tonight it’s sorta nasty and dirty. I think I oversteeped it, but that’s the end of that sample anyway.

You know what’s funny? I poked through the tea cupboard at work today and found three little tins. Full tins. They were mine from 2 years ago when I stopped drinking tea (bc I was pregnant). I left them for others to drink and no one went for them. I’ll just take them back and hope thru aren’t stale!

They were Mighty leaf Chocolate Truffle Rooibos, DT Coco Chai, and Saigon Chai. I guess I didn’t realize rooibos was safe while pregnant.

Yikes! This is first day of work after a year of mat leave. The company has changed so much they are giving me an orientation today with a new hire.

Because my bf is busy in classes from 8-7 today, I had to get up at 6 so I could get the baby to daycare, and be at work for 9. I’ll have to leave work early (3?) to pick her up as well. I’m going to hate Mondays! (He can drive her the other days). I should really learn to drive his car…

The baby seems to have a cold and Saturday was brutal. She was much happier yesterday but slept fitfully. I hope she’s ok at the daycare (she doesn’t seem to have contagious symptoms) but if I have to, I’ll grab a cab to pick her up if they send her home…

Too much going on today. Good thing I’ve got my Tiger tea!!!


Good luck today :)


Good luck getting back to work! And hopefully your little girl feels better!


eeeep! Hope today goes well!


It’s not so bad! Everyone is so happy to see me! And it’s a bit nice to be working. A little. I already brought a bunch of tea!

Ozli was right. This is just an… odd/awful blend. She sent me two cups, but I don’t know if I’ll bother with the second one. Or finishing this one.

Too bad because the ingredients sound interesting.


YES! I was so intrigued but augh. Augh. I’m still going to try cold brewing the bit I have left. I guess everyone has the odd dud, huh?

I’m sad to say goodbye to this one. :O


I have one serving of this left.


Better savour it! I hear it’s gone for summer!


It wasn’t my fave, so I’ll be ok. :)

drank Chocolate Mint Rooibos by Zen Tea

I lied. I snuck in one last sipdown!

No idea how this compares to other chocolate mint rooibos’, but I will need to replace it. Chocolate mint tea before bedtime is kind of essential you guys!

Last sipdown for the day. I call this a successful Sipdown Saturday!

Another sipdown! 118 teas! (Down 5 today? Not bad!)

I’ll reorder this next time they have a sale!

drank Moroccan Mint by Zen Tea

Sipdown of this one! I’m trying to convince my bf that this will be tastier than the flavored spearmint water he buys, especially because he likes caffeinated drinks. Will update later with the results.

We’re going out to Denny’s for brunch so I thought it apropos to bring this one! The rest has been packed away for Courtney.

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.


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!

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)
