I wish there was more basil to this one. What sounded like an interesting blend is largely lemongrass. It’s not BAD, just not what i was hoping for. Admittedly though, as it cools there’s a little more to it, so i’ll have to experiment some more :)

So apparently this tea needs 5-6 mins to become a deliciously creamy lemon cup. I have a better understanding of why this tea appeals to so many people. I’ll enjoy finishing this one out.

Another one from yesterday – I’m a little sad that both my teavivre and yunnan sourcing orders are taking an eternity to get here. It’s been more than a month now and they both haven’t even reached customs canada. Frustrating because i’d like to take advantage of the YS sale and because there was tea in both ordered for my parents that i could have dropped off at their place if i’d gotten it sooner. No complaints about the tea though…except that i’m down to make a cup or two left from the 150g i originally bought…good thing there’s 250g on it’s way? haha

Mine too. Knowing my luck it will get here right around the tea festival :/

Tea from yesterday. This is still my favourite vanilla black tea i think. I’ve been hoarding it and really just should enjoy it more. There’s something about this particular vanilla tea that is everything i want it to be from the aroma to the taste.

There is NOTHING quite like the perfect vanilla tea.

Another tea from this morning – trying to start the day out with delicious. I must remember that autumn harvest are my favourite…sometimes i’m too impatient to wait for them though lol

Guys only 3 more days left in the year IF you count today! There is much to be done in tea land! haha Pulled this one out as i’m in the middle of reorganising my cupboard and getting ready to do my final weigh in for the year. I want to make sure that i have a good handle on things that i want to keep in my cupboard, things i want to restock and things i want to give away! :) This is on the keep in my cupboard list but not sure about restock. it’s enjoyable but there are others i prefer from YS more :)

All this talk of maison des trois thes made me want to pull this one out of my cupboard. I have some puerh from there as well that i need to get around to trying but that’s on the list of things to do in 2017 haha.

This is a seriously easy drinking tea…delicious without being something that needs to be heavily thought about. I ended up drinking down my cup without even realising it, so i’ll need to make better notes next time i have it! however i think that speaks to it’s tastiness :)

Having a weird past couple of days. I’ve been unable to sleep at night, getting very little sleep. Not sure if it’s the things i’m eating or what, but i need to get back on track. Trying to spend a bit of today drinking some tea and relaxing as it’s back to work for me tomorrow (yay for extra bank holidays). Thinking about also taking thrs and friday off just to have a few days to spend at home doing nothing before the year starts up again – esp since i have 3wks and 3 days i’m carrying over :(

Pulled this tea out as i always love drinking it but never think to pull it out regularly. In part because it’ll be a pain to get again unless we take another trip to Paris.

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.
