crappy tasting notes incoming! I’m working from home today, i’m stupidly busy and because of the weather shift, i’ve got a migraine building. ugh. tea to the rescue!

this one is growing on me and was what i needed this morning – note to self, following the recommended “overleafing”

What type of work do you do? Hope your migraine goes away soon.

I am a change manager in the financial industry :) lots of work can get done at home…at least this way i avoided all the crazy commute horrors.

mmmmm time to be home…laundry and gaming now that exercising is out of the way haha. I love these winter weekends. Excuses to stay in…whereas in summer it’s hard to want to be inside unless you’ve spent like 10+ hrs outside. Still have some of this left so i’m trying to drink it sparingly since it’s one of 2? herbals in my cupboard at the moment, and i generally purchase 250g at a time of this one. lol my cupboard can’t handle that weight right now!

Your cupboard had very little tea in it right now – I think it can handle a herbal that you really love. It’s all about having what you love right?

Sil

Haha it is but after BF I’m up almost a kg…so I need to drink some up first.

Drinking tea like it’s a job. Go Sil!

Sil

it is! a job…a fun one…but gotta stay focused!

Successful Sunday fatbike ride! This was my treat for making it through the ride. We had two beginners sign up today so it was good to get out and re-experience the trail from the perspective of someone who is less of a rider than i am….since i consider myself a step up from beginner. All in all, fun was had by all – even the guy who hadn’t ridden a bike in 5 years! Now here’s hoping they come back out next week!

drank Golden Monkey Black Tea by Teavivre

Kicked the day off with this one to go with breakfast. I’ve been feeling pretty run down this week without feeling sick, so i needed something to encourage me to get out, since Sunday’s are the fatbike rides that my other half leads. Since it’s an excuse to get me out and i can help him with things, i am trying to go every weekend. But today was COLD and windy… so this tea helped. I’ll be sad when this is out of my cupboard but since i have so many straight blacks at the moment, i think i’ll be ok :)

I do love a golden monkey

Made this one as a latte tonight. Not half bad but I do David’s tea version. Still this is a tasty evening treat.

Figured since i’ve been drinking all these new teas, i really should also drink a few of my olders teas even though my cupboard is less than 6 months old :) Pulled this one out for a contrast to the malty teas from this morning – aiming for that TTC juicy honey brew. Did not disappoint!

oh this worked out much better this time. Upped the leaf and brewed it for a little longer. now it’s a much heavier brew…little bit of astringency, but it’s still smooth and there are hints of cocoa. noms. Now to go play some board games!

__Morgana__

What are you going to play?

Sil

probably Robinson Crusoe, Fallout or Clans of Caledonia haha

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.
