My second round of samples from TeaVivre seem to be held up in Shanghai, so while I wait for those to arrive, I’m sticking to old favorites rather than ordering anything new. Actually, we’re stone broke and I can’t justify buying tea, but I’m telling myself that I like turning to favorites right now.

The more tea I drink, the more I realize that the only teas I don’t need to be in a “mood” to want to drink are Yunnan golds, Wuyi Oolongs and pu-erhs. Everything else, as much as I like them, I need to be “in the mood” to drink.

I just wish I had a better Yunnan than this RoTea, right now.

If you want the rest of my TeaVivre samples I will send them to you. sorry to hear times are so tough.

Nah. They’ll get here eventually. It gives us something to look forward to.

Being broke is of our own making. We’re having the front landscaping done and it is just very expensive to have done correctly. We’re on our fourth landscaper at this point because everyone’s either a hack, or too busy to pay attention to us for more than five minutes.

But a guy came by just now and planted about two dozen flags in the lawn for the irrigation system which supposed goes in tomorrow morning.

If all of this finally comes off (this project is now 18 months in the making) it will be well worth being broke for a little while.

good luck!
