Haven’t been drinking much tea over the past week or so because i’m sick, it’s stupidly humid and hot and i have NO CHOICES in my cupboard lol I broke down last night and made a small purchase and today i’m hoping to hit tealish to get a few fruit herbals since i have zero of those in my cupboard and they’re a necessity in the summer. Here’s hoping i don’t go too crazy though as i do have a teavivre order that may never arrive on it’s way and a few teas at VariaTEA’s house tha ti need to pick up (and jam!) woot!

Your two morning posts are full of happy and smiles for me, Sil—what with the creamsicle, and the wee tea tantrum, and the little surge of shopping, and the overseas order that may never arrive, and the hopes of restraint in the next tea shop, and the tea visit with VariaTEA.

Except for the sick part. Sorry that you are under the weather. It’s tricky staying well or doing much of anything in this nonsense. I was hoping that the rain would break the humidity somewhat, but it is still painful.

Sil

boardgames and tea were purchased today..Life is great!

Helena

Yeah it’s been stupidly humid over here too. I was really sick with a bad cold. I actually missed four shifts of work because breathing was such an effort. I swear I coughed so hard I bruised my ribs. I hope you get better soon!!! (I was over the moon once I could breathe normally again)

Fjellrev

Oh no, I hope you will feel better soon, darling. My mom always told me since I was a kid how Toronto is known to get ridiculously humid in the summer due to the neighbouring Great Lakes so I don’t envy you at all.

Helena

Anyone want to file a cease and desist order on the humidity? I know I would if I thought it would work :D

Sil

fjellrev – it’s so gross. I miss AB summers so much.
Helena – no kidding!!!

Another one from earlier today. I’ve got an annoying cough that doesn’t want to go away but i’m not sick. bah. this was the right blend of creaminess + green that i was hoping for.

VariaTEA

I drank this when I was recovering from surgery. Perhaps it is a healing tea :P

easy and hard to pick a tea when you have nothing in your cupboard lol. Pulled this one out to work on drinking things up. This one is a lot “fruitier” or bright than previous years that were a little more malty. Still a great cup though.

Brought this one with my to work yesterday. I am in desperate need of some summer teas. Because of all the puerh in my cupboard i’m down to about 11 non puerh teas. That’s insane for me. This one hit the spot – just the right balance of apple and caramel.

On a side note, i don’t know about you guys but it drives me mental when companies are on facebook or other social media but don’t respond in a timely manner to questions on those platforms. To me, it’s like having a phone number or email address that you don’t answer.

Evol Ving Ness

I think that overall there is a tendency to streamline ways of contact these days. Some respond to email, others text, others call, others FB or instagram or whatsapp or whatever. Few do all of it. The trick, I suppose, is to appropriately guess who does what.

Further, it is after all July, so it is possible that people are in their canoes meditating on the sounds of the loons on the lake.

So no real clue what to write about myself here. A friend got me into drinking loose tea and it’s something I thoroughly enjoy though I have nowhere near the experience that many folks on the boards seem to have.

My other interests are cycling, reading, board games, disney cruises, world of warcraft and dancing – in no particular order. I love travelling and am currently working on trying to get my other half to as many place in the world as possible.
