Cramps. Lazy. This.

Okay, the rating is going way down. Seriously, because I can TASTE THE PAPER.

When did this happen? That’s it. I’m going to have to start pawning off all my bagged stuff to Jon. Let’s hope he doesn’t notice that I’m trying to get rid of the stuff!

Boiling 7 min, 0 sec

I’ve been furtively putting my boxes of bagged teas in the breakroom at work hoping people will just think it arrived their through normal routes.

LOL, Carolyn, I think someone’s been doing that here because seriously there are about 200 bags of random tea in our breakroom. The stash keeps growing (and it’s all random stuff I’ve never heard of).

Eep. Wrap a bow around it or something. That way it seems more gifty?

i have a cookie jar filled with random teabags for my friends who get overwhelmed with the amount of loose leaf tea i have they can dig thru that thing and find something they like lol

Carolyn

My secret method is to put only a box or two at a time in the breakroom and carefully monitor the situation. As boxes of tea disappear, I put new ones in. Meanwhile the giant bag of boxed tea I don’t like is in my file cabinet drawer (taking up much of it) waiting for their opportunity to join the other boxes in the breakroom.

Bwhaha, it looks like we’ve completed our corruption of you! ;)

I’ve recenlty realized that a lot of teas that tasted good when I was just starting to experiment with good-quality tea are not all that great now.

And yet there are a few ‘cheap’ teas I still love, like Twining’s Lady Grey and Celestial Seasonings holiday teas.

22-year-old NYC girl just starting out on her tea adventures! I used to hate tea. If you asked me a few years ago what I thought of tea, I’d tell you it tasted like hot, dirty dishwater. Not anymore! I acquired a taste for tea when I started drinking peppermint tea for my upset stomach problems. From there I graduated to teas like chamomile and Lipton. But Lipton wasn’t strong enough!

I’m getting the hang of this loose leaf thing. Black’s my default, but I’ve found that I really love teas that fall into every category. I’m a purist – I always drink my tea neat. I prefer unflavored tea over flavored tea, and really dislike anything flavored with artificial-tasting substances. I’ve grown up a bit in my tea drinking, and I find that novelty appeals to me less and less.

I also am the happy girlfriend of the boy that created the tea randomizer, which can be found here: http://www.jaydeee.net/pickatea.php
