Playing catch up on teas i’ve had over the past few days… this was one of them as i wanted to make sure i had this solo versus my usual method – with creme brulee. Was a delightful creamy treat!

pulled out this one as well to try with my black vanilla sugar, thought it might take the edge off the burnt in this brulee and i’m pleased to say it really worked well. Might like that incarnation better than divine temptation + creme brulee

Final count: 69

Black vanilla sugar?

Evol Ving Ness

That’s what I was thinking. And then I thought jam store.

Sil

Uh it’s something I picked up in Vancouver forever and a day ago.

It’s got vanilla added to it…can’t remember the company now and I’m too lazy to walk to the kitchen

Jillian

drank Golden Fleece by Verdant Tea

Finished off the 2014 and 2015 that Terri sent me. Had a good time trying to taste the differences in the harvest – 2015 wins for me. That being said, golden fleece is still one of those teas that i just don’t understand all the HOOPLA! about. It’s a decent enough tea, but it never knocks my socks off whether i brew western or gonfu or whatever… there are others i’d take first :)

Fjellrev

Sil

Fjellrev

OMG, you have that much work to do? I hope you’ll be able to recharge soon.

Sil

haha it’s a release… so we have 2 sites to deploy to, testing to do on both sites etc.. so this is all technically “in addition” to my normal job haha. I’m the lead decision maker this weekend though so i have to be on it.

Fjellrev

Aww, well good luck. They’re lucky to have you!

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.
