Backlog: woke up with this one this morning and it was good. Not particularly memorable though. Sorry Breakfast tea!

Busy, busy weekend is over, and our guests are all gone, and the dishes are washed and now I’m enjoying some quiet time with J and the munchkin, both of whom I feel I barely saw at all since Thursday!

This is a great cup to relax with, even though it turns my cup a sickly green.

Really sickly. Just drink it in a dark cup so you don’t see it.

(I have 216 notices to catch up on/read! :O)

VariaTEA

When you make it as a latte, that also cuts down on some of the grossness and oil. Happy relaxing btw!

Cavocorax

Oh, good tip! Thanks!

We had friends visiting all weekend and it was great, but we basically ate out for every meal or ordered in and all my dishes are dirty and there’s lot to clean up.

I’m going to drink this instead. :) I’m allowed to relax. People tire me out. Tea doesn’t. A dash of sugar and a splash of milk don’t hurt either!

I was just contemplating what to have next, and this reminded me I also have this tasty tea.

Cavocorax

Hee! I love when that happens!

OMGsrsly

Tea is infinitely easier to socialize with. ;)

Cavocorax

Yes! Tea wins!

VariaTEA

Ever since I got into teas, my friends and I now have “tea parties” in which I always bring the tea to share. My friends from back home had a party when I was in Florida and were all sad to go without the wonderful options I bring for them.

I’m waiting outside for a bus that isn’t coming after all, so now waiting for J to rescue me. But it’s ok. I have this tea.

It’s warm, and bright and sweet and comforting and it helps me forget the snow falling on my face and the lack of gloves.

I love it.

(our car didn’t have enough room for all our guests so I volunteered to bus to the breakfast place, except the Sunday bis schedule meant my by and turned before picking me up! Whoop s Good thing J can come back easily)

OMGsrsly

Oh no! Glad you have tea. :)

drank Ruby Pie by Butiki Teas

This was so good. I’m so exhausted but I made buttloads of money this week, and once I can cut my commute down from 80 minutes I’ll be much happier.

Things are good.

So is this tea.

Indigobloom

You gettin a car? :)

Terri HarpLady

Yay for money!

Joy of public transit in the GTA. It used to take me 60-90 main to get home to from one if my jobs. Luckily I went to the end of the route on most of the buses, because we were often so tired at the end of shifts that it wasn’t uncommon for people to have accidents in the parking lot.

Glad things are otherwise going really well!

Cavocorax

I’m going to get practice on my bf’s standard. Stupid stickshift.

Cavocorax

Yyz- yuck. That sounds really awful, but it is nice having a bus that goes to the end – then you can nod off or watch TV on a tablet or something. Right now I’m terrified I’ll miss my stop.

yyz

Generally that’s what happened:). I know what you mean about the stops though especially now with slush covered buses whose windows you can barely see out of. Good luck with the standard!

Fjellrev

Yay for money squared!

drank Bolder Breakfast by The Tea Spot

This was almost my breakfast until I remembered my Sweet&Salty granola bar, which is good because this tea is great, not the best on an empty stomach because it’s so dark and rich.

Still wow though.

OMGsrsly

Sweet&Salty = best. :)

drank L'Automne by Fauchon
1681 tasting notes

If my daughter were to review this, she would say, “Oh, wowwwww!”

I steeped it for a long time and then added a tsp of milk to make it extra creamy like an orange chocolate.

“Oh, wowwww!”, indeed!

Sil

i love that kid. she makes me happy. I’ll be sad when this one is gone.

Cavocorax

Awww. Who says she’ll be gone? What if we just stay in Toronto FOREVER? :O /0\

But maybe? I’ve got a really great job, and J is more likely to get work as an economist over here!

OMGsrsly

But we like you both over here on this coast too! :)

Sil

HEY! you have lots of ppl…. everyone over here has abaaaaaandoned me…

OMGsrsly

Aww! Poor Sil.

Cavocorax

Awwww. :O
Maybe if J gets some fancy analyst job making mega bucks we can buy a cabin north of here to escape to on the weekends and you guys can come visit for board games and tea, and IDK?

That cabin is what’s making me think long-term ON might not be so bad. :| And the bear will be older by then so board games WILL be feasible again!

Sil

We should have you guys up to our place up north….well Ian’s dad lives there but it’s amazing, even in winter!

Thanks BrewTEAlly Sweet for letting me try a sample of this.

It’s interesting. I can taste the puerh and spearmint and tulsi.
And the peppercorn and just possibly the star anise.

It’s forest-y, that’s for sure. And it’s an interesting idea, but I don’t know that I would go out of my way to get more.

Yowza! I couldn’t finish this cup this morning. It was just TOO strong. I think I oversteeped it and that made it thick and tar like. DNW.

I’ll be more careful next time because I remember that it had a nice lemon bergamot flavour when I did it right!

Sil

“Nice” and “bergamot” don’t belong in the same sentence :)

Dinosara

Hey keep your anti-bergamot prejudices to yourself, Sil! ;D

Anna

I said BERR
It’s GREY in here
Must be some EG fans in the ATMOSPHERE

(Man, that’s the best badgood movie ever.)

Sil

Dino…freedom of speech! down with the berg! the berg is MOT needed in things giggling

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)
