drank Pumpkin Ginger Spice by Traveling Tea

so much pumpkin around everywhere that i felt compelled to pull this one out today. Still my favourite pumpkin tea! I’m glad i still have a bunch of this left from when terri and i picked up a stupidly obscene quantity of this haha.

Terri HarpLady

It’s so good, and honestly, I can’t believe we both still have some, LOL.
Especially when it’s getting close to a year since we got it!
It’s one of those teas that I drank a lot when we first got it in, then was like, “uh oh…I don’t want to drink it all and run out & have to wait for months to get more” so then I started rationing it out. Time to drink up!

Terri HarpLady

BTW, what kinds of tea does Ian like?

Sil

uh… he doesn’t really like tea. he had one tea he liked.. that he drank twice in the two years we had it… mostly he appreciates tea for the joy it brings me lol

Terri HarpLady

At least the one tea he likes isn’t the one you dislike, LOL
I’m talking about Tony & I and his love for earl grey :)
Not that I really mind, but any fantasies I’ve ever had of a romantic green tea ceremony, puerh session, or just sharing a pot of tea went out the window long ago. He has his teapot, I have mine. But at least I have a nice tray to carry our teapots & cups on, and we do drink tea together on the weekends. That’s good enough :)

Helena

Is there such a thing as an obscene quantity of tea? If so I have never heard of it and refuse to believe it exists!

Sil

helena – maybe just an obscene amount of ONE tea… lol

Helena

If that were possible which it isn’t I would have too much Laoshan Village Chai

drank Teapuccino by TeaGschwendner

afternoon latte. Must remember to overleaf this one when i make it as a latte, which will be almost always lol. I really like the blending of ginger and orange in this…as well as the additional spices. feels like there’s a cinnamon type flavour going on, but i couldn’t say for sure. Just a nice latte, esp with the weather breaking just a little…

I’m in the middle of getting a new air conditioner as we speak. It’s been in the 90s for days, & although it’s a little cooler, (high 80s), it’s very humid. We have windows open everywhere, fans running, and we’re all sweating and lacking energy. Being an American in the US, I’m sure I’m extremely spoiled when it comes to things like air conditioning. Plus my bedroom is on the 3rd floor, with really no ventilation to speak of, so I’ve been staying at Tony’s for almost a week. 1st world problems, I’m sure, but I’ll be grateful to sleep in my own bed, on the 3rd floor, in cool comfort, tonight.

Sil

dude it’s been like 104 here… finally went down a bit today, but we don’t have central air, so just a little window box + fans. i am NOT sleeping well :(

Terri HarpLady

geez…I’m assuming it doesn’t normally get that hot there, right?
Poor you!

Sil

eff no. this is canada! ;)

Terri HarpLady

Anyways, now I feel like a real whiner, because you’ve got it way worse than me.
:(

Sil

the weather broke a little last night so here’s hoping it stays that way

Helena

Always good to hope but weather never goes the way we want.

Sil

but it haaaaaassss tooooo helena!

Helena

Nope the weather gods are not that nice. I checked.

Sil

looks like 21 with rain. i will take that ANY day over 35+ with sun hahaha

2015 harvest. This one is a little more bready than i recall, but it’s still smooth and has those chocolatey notes that i enjoy. i think in the grand scheme of things 2015>2014 but i’m not sure that i could qualify it against earlier harvests :) bumping the rating up a bit for this year’s harvest

looseTman

Thanks for the comparison to previous harvests!

Terri HarpLady

Still haven’t gotten the 2015 harvests of anything from anywhere, except a few sheng from verdant. Hoping to place an order soon!

Sil

verdant is the only shop i’ve done it with…no orders until after the wedding… TEN MORE DAYS!

drank Golden Honey Dew by Lupicia

Delicious! i still love this one, though i may take a break before restocking it again once i finish up with it. It really does capture that honey dew flavour so well.

Helena

and Now you have made me hungry… sigh

i forgot just how smokey this one can be lol. added a little maple syrup, but today this is a bit much for me. I know i’ll enjoy this in future but this smokey was not what i needed this morning haha

Terri HarpLady

I’m trying to drink a smokey 2 once or twice a week now. I like them, if they’re not too crazy, but tend to put them off for some strange reason.

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.
