it’s…SATURDAY! Time for Sil’s Super Saturday Sipdown, followed by Sil’s Silly Sunday Sipdown! Goal is at least 10 teas this weekend….15 would be seriously more awesome but i’m not sure how doable it is heh

Go Sil, Go!!! I’m joining :-)

Sil select said

Yay!

Dinosara said

Yup, I have a few more teas to sip down before I start my oldest-to-newest every tea marathon.

Sil select said

Dinosara…yeah i really want to get my cupboard a bit smaller so that i can get around to opening all the teas that i’ve ordered but haven’t yet tried LOL

Cavocorax said

Ooh. I want to play too, but we are visiting family today and I might get stuck at a house party for a few hours later. Hopefully I can get a few cups of something in though!

Dr Jim said

I’m in. 3 so far, with (stretch) goal of 10 for the weekend.

Yay! I’m also down 3 so far…

Sil select said

I’m up to 9 now…so i’ll hit my goal for the weekend, likely today. That also means maybe i can hit 150 this weekend and then just try and bounce between that and 150 as things from people come in so that i end the month at 150.

Dinosara said

I’ve done three but then i stalled out. I don’t really have that many sipdownable samples right now!

Haha! “Sipdownable”, we’re definitely coming up with our own lexicon here on Steepster,lol.

So far I have had 13 sipdowns today. I don’t know if I will hit 150 this weekend but soon, soon I will be right there with you :)

niiice

Sil select said

haha i tihnk i’m 13 today too so far.. just had to break for testing from tea logging

Dr Jim said

I’m done for today. 8 sipdowns for the weekend. Not too bad. I also drank half of my supply of several other teas, so will have more in the near future. I’m down to 167 teas, but will be getting a travelling tea box soon, and I usually wind up keeping a dozen or so samples when that happens, so I’ll be further behind by the end of the month. 150 just seems like an impossible dream :(

Sil select said

you can do it Dr jim! 8 is fantastic!

I’m in. My physical cupboard is too full of tea to work well right now, and I’ve incoming orders! Tea must be drunk, things must be straightened!

Sil select said

i did the straightening last weekend…this weekend i do the drinking! :)

I’ve been away for a few weeks, so a sipdown day sounds like a good way to get back into the swing of things. I’m keeping the goal modest at 5 teas.

Sil select said

you can doo eeet!

Kaylee said

Ok, I got my 5 teas done yesterday. I’m extending the sipdown effort into Sunday, hoping to get another 3 done.

Sil select said

yay! i love it when you can have sipdown saturday and sunday…

Finished off several samples, and one tea that was down to sample amount. Straightened up the cupboard, and got remaining samples sorted all into a zip and out the main cupboard. Things are a bit better now.

Sil select said

awesome! always nice to make progress heh :)

Didn’t realize I was even doing it, but it’s been a sipdown Saturday! Three so far, hoping to get one more down before bedtime.

Sil select said

haha i do it most saturdays…and sundays. :) nothing says WEEEEEEKENNND! to me, like getting to sit around and drink tea :)

Courtney said

It’s true! The weekends, well Sunday for me since I work Saturday, are the days I can sit around and drink tea all day. It’s delightful.

saturday sipdown!

Today is twofold – trying to sipdown a few teas, but the focus is on my older teas that are nearly sipdowns that i’ve either been hoarding, or had just forgotten about :) Starting at 153…with any luck i’ll end today at 145 so i can get to 140 by Monday.

Memily said

Go go go! I’m gonna get on board this next Saturday—unless I’ve managed to sipdown those samples throughout the week. I’ve already made a dent in them this week just gone!

Sil select said

haha i generally save mine for the weekend since i’m typically home and can go through multiple cups of various teas. During the week i tend to stick to the teas i have lots of to make them simdown ready ;) I will be here with you next weekend though! :)

Memily said

I’ve only really just started on my official sipdown adventure, since counting up all my teas (open, sealed and samples). 90 was not the figure I was expecting…

I drink a bunch at work each day but can’t have anything too particular because I am prone to oversteeping. I just did a count for curiosity and I’ve got six different teas with me at work today… no biggie :|

Kaylee said

I’m in. Keeping it modest, as usual; the goal is 4 sipdowns. One down, three to go.

Memily said

Yep, I’m in it to win it! I think I’m down five or six.

I missed out on tea drinking yesterday so it’s Sunday sipdown for me! My goal is to get back under 200 today…though admittedly there’s a perverse part of me that is going to aim for 190 just to see if i can get there.
