Finished off this one today – not making nearly as much progress on sipdowns today as i’d hoped, but such is the life when you have a conehead dog lol

this cup was a little bitter this morning. I think i may have steeped it a little long. I’ve got about a cup left of it, so i might try to remember to gonfu it for that last session :)

Almost out of this one…sad. I still have hopes that come christmas holt’s might bring this one in, but suspect it’ll be french breakfast they have…which is a close second to this one, so not too bad :)

Evol Ving Ness

They should be hauling in the Christmas stock say about Halloween, right?

Jillian

You mean Holt Renfrew? Last winter I think they only carried Sloan and TWG at the Vancouver store :(

Sil

yeah. they have MF here every year…like 1 twg, a bunch of fortnum and mason and sloane customer holts blends. I can always pick it up at balzac’s as well

vanilla, cacao….noms. really happy to have cooler weather here so that i’m inclined to actually drink teas in the evening :)

Final Count: 92

Kristal

Wow, look at you go!

Sil

i’ve been working on teas with large quantities forever…they’re finally getting near the end!

Kristal

Yay, that’s awesome! It’s always kinda disappointing in way when you’re making progress but your cupboard # doesn’t show it. It all works out in the end :)

Sil

haha yeah that’s why i weighed my cupboard. I’m getting damn close to the goal i had for the year in weight, so that means i can pick up a few teas! woot woot!

Kristal

Yay! :)

Jillian

I should use that strategy, Sil :D

i wanted a cup of deliciousness to sit with this afternoon when i took a short break from work. I still adore this tea – probably one of my favourites from paris. :)

better cup of this today but still all over the place with the flavouring… will need to just place a new order one of these days with a quarter to tea :)

Daddyselephant

whispers did you see Cardamom French Toast is back as the November tea of the month and will therefore be “permanent”?

Sil

yes..and did YOU see the buy 2 100g tins and get the third free promotion? (300g of CFT coming my way oct 1!)

Daddyselephant

XDDDD Congrats and enjoy!

Evol Ving Ness

Sil

removing the rating because i did love this…and now i don’t…and there were some consistency issues with this as i recall. oh well! clean up continues!

Evol Ving Ness

When it was good, it was good though.

Another one i’m saying good bye too. this is one of the few teas with bergamot that i actually really enjoy. The rest is in to the swap box though as i never pull it out often enough as i find i need to be in the right mind set to drink this one heh

VariaTEA

A bkerg tea Sil likes…perhaps I should try my sample soon …

Sil

hahaha it smells REALLY strongly of blergamot…but doesn’t taste as strongly as it smells.

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.
