Haha, I took off the lid and everything was fine and dandy again. I think it’s cause I had the lid covering the tea leaves when it was steeping so it absorbed the nasty smell cause I immediately sealed the thermos right afterward. I’m just going to drink tea without the sipping lid from now on.
Wow, I think this is the first time I’ve been named in a Tealog and inspired someone to drink a tea.
The husband’s been working a lot of morning shifts lately and I haven’t, so no automatic decision to make pot of coffee in the morning. I like a cup or two of black tea in the morning and lately I’ve been wanting plain blacks. The A&D are the two loose plain blacks that I have that aren’t bagged, which led to drinking more of the Dragonwell again. Thus began my current A&D cycle. The Dragonwell is definitely my favorite of the three.
Sorry to hear your Ceylon turned out stinky. I’ve been steeping mine about 3 min and around 200-205° F. It’s prolly the thermo though.
I meant to add: Series 5 is en route. Expect to see it added to the AM rotation shortly.
Well my Andrews & Dunham tea has been sitting around so I was like why not. Some days I just can’t decide what tea to drink. I guess I should just use Jon’s randomizer for those days.
Yeah, I usually set mine at 3 minutes, but I totally forgot about it yesterday. I agree, it’s the thermos. Stupid thermos, but what can I say, I need to bring a cup of tea to work or I wouldn’t feel complete.
Awaiting my series 5 as well! I’m excited. Hopefully it’ll be better than series #1.
Yeah, I haven’t used the tea randomizer in awhile but I like it. In fact, last night’s Lemon Green was what it suggested last and I didn’t get around drinking it at the time. So, in a long-term way, I’ve fulfilled the randomizer’s suggestion.
I am thinking (and hoping) that my Series 5 will be here today. Actually it probably already in the mailbox but it’s pouring and the husband will be home in less than two hours and I don’t work until later this evening so I will wait and let him bring it up and not get soaked.
No Series #5 for me =(. Unless my mailman stole it.
No Series 5 for me either today. I am wondering if I should be worried about it. It’s 5 days after shipping. I think it’s all the storms in the northeast delaying it. Where is A&D anyways?
Why is everyone talking about Series 5? Wasn’t the Chinese New Year tea Series 4?
*is confuzzeled *
Yeah, I think it’s series 4 and someone started saying five and we all got confused =P
Ah I see. When I read your post I rushed over to the A&D site in a panic, afraid that I would miss another series. :P
Tadaaaa, finally received it! Poor postal service people had to walk through my un-shoveled driveway to drop off my packages. It’s here! I’m 28 out of 50. I swear I placed an order when it was up to tin 11. I liked Series #1’s packaging a bit better (they had a bed of shredded paper for the tins to sit on). This time around it was just wrapped in brown packaging paper.
Yay! Mine did not come today. =( Sorry about the mistake calling it Series 5.
to leave a comment.
I am always up for sharing my tea with others. If you’re interested in something just let me know.
80+ Love it, needs to purchase more!
70-79 Pretty good, would consider another cup
50-69 Not bad, but probably won’t repurchase
