Bright citrusy rooibos, I will miss you! (160)
And someday, eventually, I’ll make an order for American Tea Room.

I’m watching Supernatural 4×15 right now and, OMG. These brothers.

These brothers need to stop lying to each other. I get the impression that this will be a constant for the entire show.


spoilers, but yes, your feeling about the brothers would be correct. (but they do it for love!)


I’m nearly done Season 4 now and it’s making me crazy! I sorta read the ep descriptions for the next 3 and irresponsible me wants to dedicate the next 4 hours to finishing the season.

Responsible me has to get the child to bed at a decent hour and get some sleep myself.

We’ll see who wins!

<3 Brothers…

So I made this an hour or so ago and left it in my Timolino because I didn’t want to turn the kettle on more than once. (Now that I have the new one, it doesn’t plug into the stove for some reason, and we don’t have enough outlets so right now I’m using it on the kitchen counter, but I have to pack it up and put it on a shelf afterwards because our kitchen is TINY)

And I totally forgot what tea this was. But then I remembered and I did a happy little dance. It was driving me crazy.

I love oatmeal raisin cookies and I love this tea. Sadly, I love sugar and I’ve been going overboard with all the treats the past few days. I made Turkey Dinner™ but I didn’t expect people to show up with so many cookies and chips and caramel popcorn and turtles. :O Once it’s gone I won’t be so tempted but it’s just sitting there…

I just ate 3 cookies while I wrote this note. :P Cookies, with my cookie tea.


I ate a giant cannoli while I wrote my last tea review so I get being tempted when something delicious is around. Damn you delicious sweets!!

Josie Jade

Omg I can’t stop eating cookies! There’s way too many tempting leftovers in my house right now. And I’m the only one home which means no ones watching while I sneak cookies throughout the day! Thank god these cookies are almost gone. :)


Oh, I’d love a cannoli!
Also, yeah I really can’t wait until the cookies are gone and I can grow some willpower back…

It was 9pm and I was ready to doze off and I couldn’t have that, so time to drink some lovely Tiger Assam!

I’ve only got enough for 2 more cups, then I’ll have to decide what to do with my pretty tiger tin!

drank Northern Wilds by Verdant Tea
1779 tasting notes

Thank you BrewTeallySweet for sharing this with me! (162)

After drinking Big Red Robe tea all day I have no problem identifying the oolong in this blend. Then there’s mint and spices in each sip. It’s tasty but not something I would go out of my way to get.

Mmmm. This is all I’ve been drinking today, and all I’ll be drinking later too. (Oolong Saturday, anyone?) I brewed up a cup of Northern Wilds in my timolino for after this cup, and I didn’t realize it was made with a Big Red Robe oolong too. :P

Ok, this is gone and I don’t need more. I sorta snagged 30g of DAVIDsTEA’s version on Boxing Day!


Terri HarpLady

So….what exactly IS Boxing Day?


It’s our version of Black Friday, but it’s not quite as insane as Black Friday, i.e. no one has ever been trampled? But people line up overnight and the store open super early so people can grab the first come, first serve awesome deals. And the malls are completely packed with people looking to spend their Christmas money in themselves…. :p

It’s sorta turned into Boxing Week instead if just the day, but the best stuff is sold on Boxing Day.

I was in retail for many years and if you work retail, you WILL work Boxing Day. It’s the busiest day of the year and all staff are needed to handle the massive crowds. It’s always been insane but I sorta miss it because we made it fun with potlucks in the back room and all the coffee you want to jazz up. :p

I never even heard of Black Friday until a few years ago though!


Black Friday us becoming more of a thing here now, because of online store influencing the rest. So we are spoiled up here!

drank Nutmeg Cream by Butiki Teas
1779 tasting notes

This was an easy sipdown today! (167)
I wish I could get more of this – Amoda & Butiki – are you guys paying attention? :P


I have one or two more sips myself, then the sadz.


So sadz. :(

drank Eggnog & Pralines by Butiki Teas
1779 tasting notes

I tried this one again in my fancy kettle (which I think is getting things up to temp?) but it just isn’t working for me.

I’m tossing the last half of my sample into my sample box for my sister – she is interested in trying new teas and I’m happy I can share them!


I was nervous about this one, but it worked out for me. More nutty than noggy, which was ok with me. I have a little left.

I forgot how great this one was. I haven’t had in a few months and it was a treat today!


mmm i love doing that!

drank Doke Silver Needle by Butiki Teas
1779 tasting notes

Thank you CrowKettle – this was a nice surprise sample! (Sipdown, 166)

I waited until my variable kettle (http://bit.ly/1de2AJv) arrived so I could try it out! (Eeee! New kettle!!! I’m still trying to figure out how it works, but I do like that it doesn’t beep or anything once the water is heated!

This is a really nice white tea. I don’t often drink white teas because they taste like barely flavoured water, but this one has a lot of neat flavours to it. I’m getting hay, and peach notes. Very nice!

180 °F / 82 °C 3 min, 45 sec
Terri HarpLady

Nice! I want a new electric kettle, Leif has taken over mine?

Terri HarpLady

Oops, that wasn’t suppose to be a question


Haha. I do that sometimes. ;)

I’m really happy I got one. I love that this one will keep the water warm for an hour!

Tea: I just started drinking loose tea in the fall of 2012, and once I started I had to get more and more and try ALL THE TEAS. Joining Steepster made this worse/easier.

So far it seems that I prefer unflavoured black teas, although I still drink a few that are flavoured each day too. Oolongs, greens, puerhs and white teas are all very good, but I just don’t crave them as often.


Me: Ok. Random things. I like animals, I have a little girl and a devoted bf, two cats, and … I’m a geek. I like Lord of the Rings, Sherlock, Doctor Who, Game of Thrones, Supernatural, fandom!, pen&paper RPG’s, online RPG’s, video games, silly internet memes, puzzles and a bunch of others things! I taught myself to knit and I’m considering crochet but I need to make time for all these things!

I keep trying to learn languages on Duolingo and failing. I’m currently failing Esperanto. :P

1-50: Bleh.
51-64: It’s ok.
65-75: It’s good.
76-85: It’s very good. (Buy 1oz+)
86-100: Amazing. (ALWAYS re-stock)
