223 tasting notes

I’ve been a wee bit absent haven’t I? Its not because I don’t love you all, or (gasp!) fallen out of love with tea, I’ve just been having so many issues with my medical condition. I’ve not been symptomatic for almost 4 weeks and I’m still only just getting back on track. Its been a major pain. Literally – I’ve had more pain medication than is medically recommended, but my doctors have said its better than me being in agony for weeks on end. I won’t bore you all here, but I’ve started writing about it on a proper normal style blog instead of just clogging up this tea blog, so have a read/follow/comment/ignore me at your leisure: http://mymissingfactor.wordpress.com/.

And, in other fun news, I think I mentioned previously I was doing a 60 Day Challenge at my local barre studio – I won the runner up prize! So exciting! I get to go shopping for more tights and other clothes for barre! Weehee! I totally think it was the overconsumption of iced rooibos that gave me the edge.

And to counter my good news, our blender became a casualty in our soup making process last night. I am now sad because medical bills mean I don’t have the spare cash to fork out for my beloved Blentec until tax return time. :(

Anywho, on to Elf Help! My lovely other half has a week off work this week (becuase he doesn’t have an inherited medical condition which has recently seen him drain all of his leave reserves to a blip. No, I’m not bitter about that at all!), so he packed my timolino with this while I was dressing this morning. Oh my he made it well! Perfect selection of green tea, orange and cranberries to give it s lovely zing. I really like this, I might have to order more. And its warming me up on this chilly day.

Yes, its certainly made life more interrupted over the last few months that I’d anticipated. Thanks for the message Sil.

Memily

Oh lady that sounds no fun at all. Apart from congrats on the barre prize, I mean! I’ll go check out your real blog xx

Sil

you totally made me want to go find somewhere here that does barre workouts. Throwback to my old ballet dancing days :)

TassieTeaGirl

Oh I just love barre, and the challenge was just an awesome 8 weeks. I definitely recommend checking it out, most studios have an introductory offer making it cheaper to try out.

I remember getting my first cup of tea at about the age of 8. Just a standard run of the mill black, with some sugar and milk to make it palatable to an 8year old. But a love was born and I’ve never looked back!

I’ve always appreciated the quality of loose leaf, and thanks to the discovery of the fanatastic gadgets at DavidsTea while on holiday, the tea obsession has grown! Is it weird to be ordering tea and having it sent half way around the world?

I’d love to do some tea swaps with people to try new teas. I have a bit of a DavidsTea range for any Australians interested in trying some DT goodness minus international postage fees!

Ive just started working at The Art of Tea , a small Tasmanian company. They dont currently ship overseas, but im more than happy to arrange swaps with people. their full product listing can be found here: http://www.artoftea.com.au/. (December 2012).
