Black tea of the morning! I’m trying to sipdown a few moer of the teas in my cupboard before I crack open the new teas I received from Stacy. My only real complaint being the bags Butiki uses as they aren’t quite airtight and often bits of tea will make their way out the bottom. This of course means I have to try and put them in other tins or feel complelled to drink them down faster.

All that being said, I really enjoy this tea. I’m looking forward to comparing it with a few of the other teas i picked up from stacy. I need more straight teas in my life. :)

Oh man…i’d forgotten how good this is. Morning smoothie and while I was tempted to do a sipdown on my boerry matcha THIS begged me to drink it this morning. I am so glad i listened! I added a dash of cheesecake matcha to bring out a bit of creaminess as well. Man let me tell you, there’s a reason i have a back up package of this unopened in my cupboard. SOOOO good!

I haven’t had this in a while. I should break it out again. I still need to mix this with cola, too.

Did you end up buying any coffee matcha, btw?

Sil

I didn’t :( mostly because i’m not ready to place a bigger order and paying shipping means that it’s not that much of a discount over just using my GC for reviews. I also wanted to try maple flavour and that was on sale 20% which is less than my GC as well heh. I have 4? new flavours on their way so I’m going to hold off a bit longer until i can get through more of my matcha…which shouldn’t take too long given that I have at least one smoothie every day :)

Babble

I understand. I passed on it, too. I have so many match a flavors already and I don’t go through them as quickly as you do. I’m also holding out to see what flavors they put on sale for Black Friday. Then I might cave.

What 4 flavors do you have on the way?

Sil

cola, strawberry, blueberry and english toffee

SIPDOWN!

Made this into a cold brew and it was a good time. I am truly enjoying the teas from Stacy that have made their way into my cupboard. There’s a small part of me that really wants to make this alcoholic :) In any case this is a great fall tea for those evenings where the tempaerature dips down a little.

Mmmmm afternoon tea after my caramel brûlée latte from Starbucks… Also may have picked up a gingerbread cupcake from the company down the street….it’s soooooo delicious. So now I’m back at home trying to be good and drink nice wonderful teas and not think about teh work to do this evening. Blech

Babble

I had a caramel brûlée latte the other day from Starbucks, too. Did they offer the BOGO drink offer promotion in your area?

Sil

Mmmmm I really like this tea when the weather’s a little colder outside. It’s almost like having a cider to drink…something I really enjoy when I’m ice skating in winter. Very nearly a sip down – I may finish this later tonight if the weather gets cooler this evening. My other half is at work tonight so I’ve got the house to myself to drink tea in and finish getting some of my packages ready for drop off tomorrow.

Work day! Yay for getting things done! Super productive this morning which likely has something to do with not waking up with a headache for once. Now to sip on some tea and try to bang out the last of this work.

Very nearly a sip down – only one more smoothie left I think. Which is a good thing because I’ve been staring at the matcha all weekend wiling it to jump into my shopping cart lol. However I don’t Really have the funds and expect that there will be deals on Friday I won’t want to pass up.

Once again a delicious offering from red leaf, though not my favourite by any means.

Indigobloom

agh Friday sales, they’re gonna be the end of my wallet! lol

Sil

I’ve basically been putting money aside for the past month or so, so that I can splurge on a new companies offerings if I feel so inclined.

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 as well!

Most of that is on hold these days though, including tea drinking like I used to as I have a new little one who eats up all my spare time.
