Saturday Sample Sipdown! Who's in?
My goal is 10 sample sipdowns today. I’m doing several low hanging fruits though that will likely get dumped, but I have to at least brew them up and see.
So far I’ve done 4… 6 more to go!
Haha yay for you! No goals for me this weekend since I’m all over the place with work tonight and then getting on a plane…but I need to get back under 200 ASAP!
It’s not saturday but it IS a sunday sidown day! Here’s to trying to get through 10 or so today heh
I’m in too! Although IDK about 10. Do you actually drink the entire cup and re-steep it? Or dump it if it’s meh?
Cavo – i resteep good teas. if it’s not that delicious, i don’t waste my time..but then those teas also get tossed into the swap box if there’s a lot there that i know i won’t want to drink.
also..only 5 today, but that’s not half bad considering two of them were like 7+ steep teas AND i was out from 2[, until late…so no real drinking today as planned.
Yeah. That’s acceptable. :P
I didn’t get much sipdowns down either, but I did try a bunch in my sample box to get that much closer. I also tried a few teas that were new to me so I could see if I wanted to keep them.
Trying to get a few sipdowns in today before i’m pretty much out of the house with no tea access until sunday evening boooooo Maybe with a little luck i can get to 200 this weekend, or at least set myself up to hit that early next week!
I know this is probably a very silly question, but what exactly is a sipdown?
it’s saturday! and it’s rainy! So perfect time to spend the day inside drinking tea, organising things and aiming for 200-210 teas before my next order gets here lol
I’m in today! Ideally I’d like to remove about 12, but it will probably be less, as they aren’t all one cup sipdowns :( but we will see how it goes!
I’m on it today too but it’s 5pm here so I have had a very late start. Reason being that I was a little hungover and had virtually no sleep so it’s taken me so long to get back on track. Will have to do a Sunday Sample Sipdown to replace it for this Saturday. The night is still young, reviewed one so far and I aim to review at least another 5 or 6 samples, at least. :)
i like just doing “weekend sip downs” along with trying to get around to tasting teas I haven’t yet tried in my cupboard so that during the week I can spend my time drinking teas that I KNOW I like since I don’t always get time to make fresh tea at work heh
I finished off Della Terra Teas- Perfect Pear and Apricot Carousel today.
Sunday Sipdown for me (it’s hard to do a Sat. sipdown when you’re working)! I’ve got a few I want to finish up and a ton of homework to do, perfect combo!
I’m trying to get my stock under control. I just finished a sample from Nina’s tea (Grand Amour) and I’m now drinking the last of David’s Tea High Mountain Oolong. The downside of oolongs is that I’ll probably need to do about 5 cups to finish it off in style. The goal is two more by the end of the day.
