Well with a family getogether that will last for only the Gods know how long, I am not going to be able to to do much of a sip down. But last night had a cup of Mandarin Orange green tea (unknown company since I bought it at my favorite store in Plymouth, Michigan.) today having a cup of Peach Perfection…Well the cup last night was nice, not terribly inspiring and would probably be good iced. Peach Perfection on the other hand…makes face blech. barely able to keep drinking it, and I got a little less then an ounce left. I think I will try it iced and if it doesn’t fly then…then it’s going bye bye! I got to many teas to sipdown, teas that for the most part I kind of liked but have forgotten about and debating whether or not to get them again…but anyways I think I can manage to convince myself to throw this one away if it doesn’t work iced.

I am going for the goal of 3-6 sipdowns this weekend. Since I’m living at my Moms and she keeps the house cooler then I’m used to (During the day at least. Seems like when I want to sleep it’s too stuffy.) I’ve been managing hot tea for the most part. My mom was very nice about giving me this wide wicker box to store my favorite teas in, though I also put the teas that I need to sip down in there too, but she didn’t object to it.
Though she was generally like “Sarah! Why do you have so many teas! I mean I like tea well enough but this is to much!” heh. So the majority of those I keep in a roll around organizer with open pull out drawers. It just barely fit the rest of those teas. Heh. So I made a rule for myself that I have to finish a significant amount of my sipdowns before I have much of any of other teas. That includes any more tea buying/ordering. (Really want to order from Verdant and Della Terra.)

I did a sipdown of a few Teavivre samples. It doesn’t really do much besides be very tasty. (I’m out of Golden Monkey though.)

I’ve got samples of five Tea Forte teas that I hope to get through today and tomorrow. I’ve got a lot of sipping down to do in the next month in order to be in a good place to order more tea!

Personal goal for this weekend is to get down to at least 70, though my stretch goal is 65 haha depends on how many errands i need to run which will keep me out of the house after my overnight at work

Week end y’all!!

Because tea samples are taking over my house, I plan on drinking ONLY samples for the next two days. Hopefully, this will create some room…for MORE tea!!

If you have a similar problem, please join me :-)

I’m starting tonight, right AFTER I break in my brand new Repave cake from W2T.

After that, it’s sample time!!!

Sil select said

I’m in! I’ve got the same problem happening here lol

Yay!! Welcome to the team Sil!!!

Sarsonator said

You already know I’m in! Stocking the nook tonight!!!

Sarsy, the nook shall be abundant. Amen.

Kaylee said

Yes! I am so glad someone resurrected this thread! Count me in!

I’ll play! I really want to sip down all of the teabags I receive as free samples with my orders.

Yay!! Let’s have a mega tea party all together this week end!!

Sil select said

…well if you’re going to do it…start it off right…Special Dark for the win, though sad too because now i need more! :(

I’m in! I didn’t realise how much tea I had until I moved last month. If I plan on joining more tea clubs I need to get my drink on and do some reviewing to clear some space. Mad tea filled weekend ahead.

Morning y’all! I’m starting with a sample from the lovely Sarsonator…Beautiful Taiwan Golden Lily Oolong( I misread it for Golden “shity” so sorry about that my little sarsy, thank you for the clarification this AM lol!)

it’s yummy!!!!

Mmmmm…sipping my H & S Golden Monkey sample from the awesome MzPriss…will buy this, it’s excatly what I crave in the morning!

I’m awake and starting the day with Master Han’s 2002 shou, but after I get moving with that, it is on to the samples. I think I am going to begin with an unknown puerh tuo, then… who knows?

MzPriss said

I’m having Dark Beauty and then I’m putting a BUNCH of samples in the nook. I’ve decided – we need a faucet in the nooks.

Sarsonator said

Hmmm… nook faucet. I like it! Now who do we know that is a plumber… hmmmm….

MzPriss said

Just so happens we have one :D

I have a MOFO kettle so I’m good! ;-)

MzPriss said

My kettle is wee and so is Sarsy’s – we have the same nook kettle aka – my travel kettle

MzPriss said

I had Misty Peaks sheng ballz. And then fell off the sipdown wagon into some Golden Monkey of which I have a lot.

Lol I will probably fall off the wagon soon also! Some regular favorites are calling my name, sigh…

Well, I didn’t intend on doing a sip down today but I reached for my Temple Road Crane Monk Light Oolong and my nose is filled with the beautiful floral aroma. This tea is over a year old and still amazing. I think one of my all time favourite light oolongs. Now I find myself looking at their website to possibly re-order. Hmmm It’s only 22.49 for 100g….
