nom. again, just needed something easy today. Not a hope in hell of making my numbers goal for 2016 but i’m pretty sure i’ll be under my weight goal so that is something. Now to find time for all my puerh that has been lonely without me…

VariaTEA

If it makes you feel any better, I have more than doubled what I hoped to be at for 2016

VariaTEA

In fact, I have too many varieties for my 365 days of tea thing

Sil

Haha I’m not sure other ppl’ misery makes me feel better.

when your stash of classic LB is low..what to do? drink your stash of imperial version! haha I pulled this one out today because i just want easy, simple and nothing i have to think about. I also really enjoy that this one handles over steeping if i get distracted.

Another one from Angel this was interesting to me. Tightly packed ball. I’ve steeped this a few times now – the first was a long steep which barely opened the ball up. THis has a light taste to it…slightly sweet as infusions moved on. It probably didn’t get stronger until after the 5th? infusion, but i did lose track of things.

Another generous sample from Angel This one isn’t up my alley but i can appreciate that those who like green oolongs might find this one particularly nice. slightly sweet, little vegetal but not overwhelmingly so. Thanks for the sample angel!

Another one from this morning. So much to do before the end of the year, and not just in tea drinking land! I’m backing up my boss this week, have major projects to close out and i need to get in to see my eye dr, dentist, rmt, banker before dec 31 while also trying to find 2 days to take off so i’m only carrying over 3wks hahahahaha. Finding the time off shouldn’t be that difficult but i can’t take time off this week and next week i already have mon and tues off because of the bank holidays. we’re also trying to get up to ottawa to see my parents for a couple days…and i really just want to play some board games but everyone is working!

anyone wanna come to my place for some gaming? :)

I’m thinking i was sent a different tea than what’s on the label of this sample from angel. Instead of a single ball in my package there were small balls – similar to the dragon black pearls. I’m going to assume that this is NOT jasmine dragon ball black tea since i don’t get any jasmine in the scent nor is it visible. No rating on this one since i don’t think it’s the right tea heh BUT thank you for the sample Angel. Whatever this is, it’s enjoyable to drink this morning :)

Another one from this morning. It’s taking a lot to get organised again after last week – i was stuck in hell and my other half had no time to do anything around the house. Today he’s also off for the day at a fatbike race…so that means juggling a dog who missed me, loves the snow and just wants to play…while trying to get the house picked up again haha. I needed this. I also need my damn order to get here – it’s ALMOST a month out, and i’m almost done the 100g of this i had left. good thing there’s 250g on it’s way :)

Final Count: 68

sipdown! pulled the last of this one out to have today since there won’t be a whole lot of time in december to drink down my stash :(

People seem to be in the mood for smoky teas these days. Must be the bitter cold. This is one of the smoky Lapsang Souchongs, right?

Sil

nope this one isn’t smokey :)

Evol Ving Ness

Not smokey. Hmm. There should be some sort of marker to indicate when a Lapsang Souchong is not smokey. Or maybe I need to do a bit of reading up on this tea to get more of a handle on things.

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.
