Remembrance day here in Canada, lest we forget. Had a relaxing morning watching the ceremony on TV, then went shopping with the boy in the afternoon. And now making guacamole and having this tea.

This tea!! Oh my goodness!! I could have sworn there is honey in my cup :D mmm i havent had an oolong like this before! So sweet yet juicy too, a perfect mixture. I feel warm all over :) i steeped the bfs for 30 s, and my cup for 35, after a rinse. Tasted his, more oolong with a light hint of honey, mine is full of it! A creaminess too, and a warming spice. Can’t wait to see what later steeps hold! My cup is almost gone already! Definitely a prime candidate for my incoming yixing pot :)

I’m enjoying mine right now :D well once it cools down a little :D I don’t go to the ceremony because all the people crammed into the gym makes me feel ill. I did do a moment of silence on my own though :D I always support the Canadian Armed Forces (my parents are in the forces) even if they weren’t though I always think about the people gave us the freedom we now have (and sometimes take for granted)

Mmm i’m on my second cup so good! I don’t blame you about the crowds, i usually just watch what’s going on in Ottawa and have my moment of silence at 11, it truly is amazing what they sacrificed for freedom! And what the forces continue to do for the country, they have all my respect :) i hope you enjoy your tea as well! Verdant is unbelievable at finding delicious teas!

I’ll post the poem I wrote back in high school on here tomorrow, as I have the day off to dig it out and type it up :D it won 3rd place from the local Legion (I forget which one)

MissLena

Nice!! I look forward to reading it :)

Hello all, I am a happily employed electrical engineer (read:NERD :D), who is a bit obsessed with tea! I discovered loose tea in 2011, DAVIDsTEA in 2012 and it took off from there. I really started drinking/enjoying tea because it was excellent to take to class in the morning and because I can’t handle coffee! (unless it’s a really good cappuccino or latte, or decent decaf haha)

I enjoy a variety of teas – current favorites being ripe and raw pu’erhs, chinese black teas and herbal/green rooibos blends. I also enjoy white, green, and oolong teas, although I tend to drink them more in the warmer months. I have also tried matcha and guayusa, but I don’t drink them too often as I am a bit sensitive to caffeine. As a result I don’t drink black teas as often as I used to, but in moderation I can still enjoy a wide variety of teas.

Oh, and I have a severe peanut allergy and try to avoid most other nuts, just to be safe. Limits my tea choices a bit, but that’s ok. However I have tried almonds and found out I can eat them, so I have been trying a few teas with them in them.

70-79: happy to have tried and will gladly finish, but not restock
