Goodbye Garrus! I feel like I should miss you more, but it’s the chai, baby, the chai. More chocolate would have held my interest, but I have no regrets.

Now I have slightly more room on my shelf for my next Adagio purchase… (I’m looking at you, Burgler Brew!!!)

One of youngest’s favorite characters…

Cavocorax

He was my fav char in the series, although it’s a hard decision. There were so many GOOD characters: interesting in different ways.

Sipdown (149)
I was sipping this all day while we moved the last of our stuff back into the suite. Eeesh. It was such a long day but this was such a beauiful tea. Thanks Sil I didn’t get a chance to log it while I made it but it was great and quite tolerant to abuse. (Sorry tea – I kept steeping it for 8-10 minutes…)

Sipdown! I’m at 150. :)
I guess it’s pretty easy to do when you actually stop ordering teas! Now, to see if I can join Sil in the 100’s… (and then order more, most likely – hahaha)

Anyway, thank you Sil and/or VariaTEA for letting me try this. Sorry I couldn’t remember exactly who it was that gave me the cup! It is really relaxing though. I almost feel like I should have a sore throat or a cold or something to fully appreciate this, but it’s really just what I need to end this day! Still got more moving/unpacking stuff to do tomorrow, so goodnight Steepsterites!

Hah, I’m at 155 now. I would like to be under 100 too, let’s do it! :P

VariaTEA

This was from Sil. I am just the delivery person.

TeaBrat

According to my cupboard I’m at 219! Yikes!

Cavocorax

Right- that’s what it was VariaTEA!
And we CAN DO IT! Especially if we focus on the little/easy sipdowns!

drank Loco Lime by RiverTea

Even though I finished this now, I hadn’t reviewed this because I was undecided while I sipped it.

I drank some of it cold-steeped earlier today with dinner, and I enjoyed it, but it wasn’t memorable enough. I tried to have a goodnight cup of this but my daughter pushed into me and I ended up spilling the cup down the stove and into all the burners. Le sigh. :p

So now I’m making chamomile to relax!

VariaTEA

Oh no. That is very unfortunate. At least you got to enjoy one of the two cups.

Cavocorax

Yeah, totally! I feel like I’ve had too many disaster tea posts! I really got to stop knocking things over…

drank Mulberry White Tea by RiverTea

I haven’t actually had this tea since I got it from my shared order with Sil and WHAT A FOOL AM I. It’s so good. Delicious. And I bet I’d like it iced as well. Maybe I’ll cold steep these leaves after I’m done this cup…

I think this was a free sample with my last order as I generally don’t order anything other than black teas. It’s tasty though! Buttery and light and very vegetal. It seems like a poor choice for 9 at night – maybe it’d be better in the morning or afternoon. Or at least some time when the sun is up?

Oh, and the spinach notes linger long afterwards…

Sil

how is it already 9pm…i haven’t done anything productive tonight except mildly look into a hawaii trip…since work is going to kill me for a few months

(158) Goodbye, slightly smoky tea! Today it’s a little too much smoke for me, but I think that’s just because I’ve been staring too log at computer screens and not drinking enough water…

This tea is good, but not mind-blowing. Maybe I’m jaded? I drank some favorites earlier so it’s hard to compete with that… This is a pleasant black/green mix with a bit of strawberry jam flavoring that I like, but it’s nothing I could live without. I wouldn’t refuse it though. It’s good. It’s just hard to compete with all the exceptional teas out there.

Thanks Sil for letting me try it!
And I’m at 160!!!
(I might go back up when my Butiki order arrives, but I don’t think it’s even shipped yet so I have time!)

Sil

go go gadget sipdowns!

Cavocorax

:P I’m hoping I can push my numbers down steadily so that when you go to US and buy like crazy, we’ll meet in the middle!

(162) I enjoyed this with breakfast this morning. I like it – it’s dark and roasty – but I couldn’t tell you what makes it different from the one i bought from Teavivre!

mj

I wasn’t that impressed with this one either. The Da Hong Pao from Whispering Pines, on the other hand, is a whole different story.

Cavocorax

Really? I’ll have to remember that!

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)
