Finished this one off today. Brewed it better this time so it was a lot more apple gingerbread than the first time which was basically honeybush. Not a favourite for me, but was a fun tea to try.

Pulled this one out today. When you have a tiny cupboard full of tea, you do a lot of repeats in a week hahaha. Can’t wait for more tea to get here. Today the lime and ginger came through a bit more than the first time. Nice but not something I’d crave.

I cannot fathom having a tiny cupboard for tea – I not only have an entire studio full of tea (a small commercial kitchen) but I also have a large china cabinet full of tea, and several shelves in the kitchen full of tea. Mat would tell you that tea is taking over the kitchen – and he wouldn’t be wrong . . . but he says it like it’s a BAD thing and not for the joyful blessing that it is.

It’s hard to get used to….it’s too small for my liking at the moment. But I was at 300+ teas and was annoyed I wasn’t drinking things when they were delicious…so worked on getting it down to under 100. Then I got pregnant and I’m on mat leave now so trying to curb my spending until I’m back at work. It’s waaaaaay too little at the moment.

Finishing this up tonight..kiddo in bed and now ian and i can sit and try and play a game or two before we crash early haha. Been a long day. Happy to be finishing this year out in fine tea form. achieved all my sipdown goals!

13 teas (370g); 7 puerh (795g). I have a bunch of tea coming in the new year because i treated myself with my work bonus (and ‘cause i’ll be back at work soon enough) but that’s a problem for next year haha!

am. in. love. Seriously. In some ways i’m stupidly glad that it’s am amoda blend so that i can get more. Though i HATE amoda’s shopping charges – they’re ridiculous!
The rest will be off to variaTEA or I’ll drink what i have again until my order arrives lol

gmathis

Chocolate and orange are just perfect together, aren’t they?

Sil

When it’s done right…absolutely! I haven’t had a good chocolate orange tea since butiki :(

52Teas

For the record, I only blended one batch for Amoda – there are no plans to reblend.

Sil

@anne….I might have purchased 150g lol

52Teas

Well, actually, it was more than one batch because they needed a large quantity of tea, so what I should have said is that no arrangements have been made to reblend this or any of the other teas in the future.

52Teas

@Sil – :) That should keep you in the tea for a while!

Sil

@anne – maaaaaaayyyybe lol it’s really good.

52Teas

I’m happy you’re enjoying it!

Undecided on this one. It was a lot of honeybush taste when i had it. Will try again as it was a duplicate in both amoda boxes so i get a whole package instead of half as VariaTEA and i are sharing.

enjoyed this one but it wasn’t particularly eggnogg-y in my opinion. But it was a nice change of pace given i haven’t had a genmaicha in a while.

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.
