i can’t keep my life straight anymore. Working from home for the past 3 days because a) my husband is sick and has slept for 2.5 days straight and someone needed to take care of the puppy and b) because i’m sick and while i’m not resting, at least i’m not having to get dressed and make the trek in to work. Add to that some re-org changes that are giving me an opportunity to create my own job role (if i can do it in 2 days while sick) AND a massive delivery going in next weekend followed by supporting teams in chicago for a week after the deployment…oh and throw in our holiday party and other such seasonal festivities and you have yourself a crazy life! I’ve been drinking tea but just too busy to much but tread water. All that aside, i’m not complaining…just explaining. I love the challenges and honestly, life’s too short to complain. (though sometimes it’s hard not to!) haha overall things are good…just crazy busy! :)

this was my compromise for not going out to get coffee today as it was just too miserable outside for me to want to leave. thanks for the share dexter!

Another tea from dexter. this on was a little strong for me this morning so i’m going to have to play with it a bit.

Dexter

I actually bought this from Amsterdam Tea locally, and they aren’t advertising it as from Justea but I think that’s what it is….

Sil

haha i had it under amsterdam tea..but then saw your note about justea so changed it up

I guess i forgot to make a note on this one the last few times i had it. This is another from dexter and is a pretty decent yunnan black. It’s malty, strong and smooth. pretty tasty!

Dexter

I find it interesting that you did better with the Red Blossom Teas than the ones from Imperial Tea Court. :)

Sil

yeah they’re all tasty though to be fair… :) i apparently like yunnan blacks :)

Another one from Dexter this one isn’t bad. I wish it was a littler richer – i find that mate tends to thin things out for me. I’m never a huge fan of mate. I do like the coffee flavour that this one has, but i’ve had other coffee/teas that i prefer. Really happy to try this one.

Hey Sil,
I’ve been trying to find anyone who might have some Majesteas they are willing to swap. Especially the Highland one, but I’ll take whatever. Any chance you have some you’re willing to part with? Thanks!

Debi

Sorry, I just noticed you don’t have any of the Majesteas. My bad. I was going by some of the comments on their tea, so maybe it was from a while ago. Sorry!

Sil

@ debi – i didn’t manage to get over there before they closed :( You could try looking their teas up on steepster and seeing who has them in their cupboard.

Debi

Yes, I also missed stopping by the store before they closed. :(
I just logged on now to look it up in peoples cupboards. :)

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.
