737 Tasting Notes

It’s actually earth.
They’re all ghosts.
He’s his own brother.
They’re all clones.

I feel like I should know what you’re talking about…

ashmanra

I know that one! :)

Shmiracles

Oh dang do I get loopy at night!!!
The text notifier on my phone is the star trek door bell sound.
The ring tone on my phone is the theme song to ‘The IT Crowd’.
4 seasons of IT crowd are on netflix and you should watch it if you like fun.

we were all sitting around the kitchenroom talking about how some people like to try to figure out twist endings in movies while other people just enjoy the movie undistracted. So I pulled up a scene from season 2 that was all about this behavior. my boyfriend and I reference it regularly during movie talks.

but seriously watch the show from the beginning of the series!!
Goth to Boss!

Em

I love that show!! Totally didn’t connect this to it though. Maybe I need to watch it again.

Would love an IT crowd ringtone—that’s great! People at work don’t understand why I’ll ask “Have you tried turning it off and then on again?” and then collapse into a fit of giggles.

Uniquity

Is it IT or I.T.? It’s on my to watch list, I wonder if it’s on Canadian Netflix..

Shmiracles

when you say it outloud you say it The Eye Tee Crowd, but it’s spelled just ‘The IT Crowd’.
it’s all on Netflix here in the states. which makes it fun to recommend cuz a person can have the fun right away!
and not really related at all, but another show i recommend often is ‘Misfits’. if you haven’t heard of it.

Uniquity

I figured it was I.T. There are a tonne of wonderful shows that I wish Netflix Canada would pick up – though then I would probably never stop watching TV. That would be bad, right?

Em

You have to take the good with the bad. At least you have ketchup chips and smarties in Canada if you don’t have the IT Crowd. BTW, spent much of New Years Day watching the IT Crowd thanks to this post :) My facebook status that day: “I have it on good authority that if you type Google into Google, you can break the internet.”

Em

Uniquity, we need to find jobs that allow us to watch TV all day and drink tea :) Ooo and reading too.

Uniquity

@Em – Yes, please! I used to work in an indie bookstore which game me two out of three. Ideally I would be a book reviewer or a book rep – but both of those professions don’t exactly pay well anymore and are quite difficult to get. Perhaps someday!

Em

Look what I found :) http://www.othertees.com/ The IT Crest!!

this tea smells very good.
I had a mega tea tasting with my sister yesterday. I hope to have another one soon.

Since this is almost the last day of the year there is a lot on my To Do list I’d like to get done.
Wish me luck!
Maybe I’ll just throw everything into the garbage and be done.
Do you ever wanna just move to a cabin?
Like leave everything behind and see what it’s like to start from scratch?
I’m not feeling destructive, it’s just what the beginning of a new year will do to my mind.

one of the christmas teas. i postponed drinking it for a long time because it really doesn’t seem like my thing. i don’t even really like cotton candy in it’s original form. but it was a cute tea. and fun. though it definitely doesn’t fit my winter mood.

we were drudging through historic Williamsburg. my sister and i had run out of things to say to my dad and his wife a few hours ago. we all had a beer to ease the tension. then my sis and i spotted this place! tired of looking at old buildings? go shopping for tea! the tea wasn’t super top notch or anything, but we could purchase small bags of a nice variety and it was super fun to smell all the tea.

this was a sweet little treat tea. thanks oddree for sharing as ALWAYS!

i have been drinking tea for days and not commenting or making notes.

old dear roommates visited from out of town and they got so excited when they smelled all of my teas!

i haven’t visited facebook for over a week, but within 2 min of clicking my friend notifications i registered for this http://www.7summitsrace.com
dangit.
DANGIT!
(i’m a race addict)

CrowKettle

Good luck! That looks crazy intense :)

Shmiracles

translation!
Good Luck crazy! That looks like a stupid idea!
HAHAHAHAH i have no idea what i was thinking
(aka if it involves too much swimming i’m bailing)

Shmiracles

translation,
i wasn’t thinking.
i was a little drunk when i clicked ‘register’

CrowKettle

Ha! I did a similar thing on a smaller scale when my young unathletic self impulsively signed up for the Vancouver Sun Run (only 6.2 miles). This is much more insane (and fun looking) though! It looks like you can skip the swimming obstacles at least?

CrowKettle

Are you doing it with a team?

Shmiracles

I actually only pre-registered, cuz the Virginia race doesn’t exist yet. but I did register because a few friends did too. so there might be a team involved.
My thing is marathons and 50ks, and my thing is decidedly NOT upper body strength and swimming. Whomp whomp.

CHAroma

Tried looking but stupid work computer blocked the site. :( Good luck though!!

Shmiracles

i hope to do the vancouver marathon or the dirty duo 50k there one of these years soon.

they haven’t even scheduled the race yet, so hopefully i’ll have enough time to train and not completely die out there.

the tea will save me!! hah

CrowKettle

Ah, I’m speechless! I’d swim lakes and lakes before I’d manage to finish 50k. Lots of respect from this direction :)

I’d never be able to do the 7summit but it looks amazing and I can’t wait to hear about how it goes if you do it!

slightly toasty and smokey. just slightly though.
i bet my sister would appreciate this tea more than i do.
she’s a breakfast tea kind of gal.

drank Movie Night by DAVIDsTEA
737 tasting notes

25/12/2012 gonna go see 3 movies today!

26/03/2013
popcorn balls. it smells like popcorn balls. and the scent is strong, because i had the teabag ready and just sitting here for most of the morning and even though i was drinking two other delicious teas THIS in the scent i most noticed over and over again.
once brewed, most of this tea is in the nose. over and over i smell the tea more than i taste it. though as it cools it tends to get an interesting buttery kind of flare or texture?
i don’t know about you but this tea has very little actual tea leaves in it. it’s mostly a fruit tea with a sprinkling of green tea added. which is nice when you wanna mellow out a bit. so i will try to keep that in mind. this tea is not just for the movies!
salty maple and buttery apple. nom nom nom. i should think of it more like a baked desert tea. i guess i’ve started to realize how much i like apple teas. cuz i seem to have a lot of them. and also i eat the real thing everyday.

CHAroma

Which three?

Shmiracles

oh umm, LesMis – Wreckit Ralph – Lincolin
still hope to see Django Unchained soon soon

CHAroma

I just saw Django! If you like Tarantino, you’ll love this one. How was Les Mis and Lincoln? I haven’t heard anything about either, which was rather unexpected.

i don’t know what i’m doing. i made 3 pots of tea today and i let them all get cold before i could finish them.
we are painting the living room ‘honey cream’ and ‘cherry red’ with a ‘chocolate’ colored trim. i was too busy to drink them properly. i should have used my timolino.

i read in bed and then painted for almost 10 hours straight.
then suddenly i felt very sad. (probably due to exhaustion)

is it possible to own a tea for every mood?
like music?
or poetry?

what am i searching for when i continue to buy more tea. and organize it. and taste it. and smell it. and buy the cups. and saucers. and teapots. to hold. and feel. and admire. in colors. and sizes. and textures and weights.
(i have more teas than i can possibly drink in a year, and i still search for more)

Bonnie

Don’t feel bad, why do you think we’re all here on Steepster?! We all have the same addiction!

i am shocked that i’ve tried this one so many times and never got around to commenting on it.

it has Orange Peel in it for heavens sake! AND ginger!! and it’s a oolong puerh blend! things i love love!

in fact i’m also surprised i didn’t choose to buy 50g of this one. (i guess i figured that Detox and North African Mint were similar enough. ?) but either way, i’m glad to have the samples i do.
the orange is brisk. the ginger is peppy but not too strong. the oolong is smooth and peeks out from under the looming puerh cloud. the puerh-ness is faint and not overpowering. but i’m also very glad it’s there, since i like it’s earthy darkness.
