I so admire you French. It seems you are always HOURS ahead of us and we just can't catch up!

In my cup, Yunnan Gold with a side of chorizo.

Whence do you source your Matcha, if you don't mind my asking?

Just 1 today, although sometimes if I'm ambitious I'll have 2 or 3.

Today it's Sweet Strawberry Caramel. Yum!

I voted 1 today. I made a ton of Den's Sakura Sencha that turned out surprisingly good even though I completely flybbed my thought process and the brewing. I have been drinking it mostly cold.

Sorry for the rather boring topic today. I wrote up TD with only one eye open and the other in dreamland. (seriously, this is true...one eye open...like half awake) For a while I thought it was just a problem I was having, but then after a few hours of not being about to get on TC, I realized I was not receiving any new member registrations that are automatically sent to my email. I felt a little beter then knowing it was not just me.

Happy birthday Russian Soul!!! I really love the kyusu. Is is as stunning in person...or even more so. I like the more globe shaped kyusus for some reason.

A lot of birthdays lately...hmmm...a poll idea comes to mind.

I just finished off my bag of Fukamushi from Kagoshima...things are getting desperate here. Well, I will be pretty lean sencha wise til I get my first shincha, but that is just amazing planning on my part. :roll:

More and more shincha preorder info is hitting sites. Getting ready to pull the tigger somewhere. I cannot believe I have not preordered any yet. Maybe today...I am tired and weak...and very succeptable to preorder hype marketing.

I need a caffeine IV drip today...or just drink more tea.

One more Happy B-day, RS!!!

4 teas for me today. PG Tips, Red Rose, English Breakfast and some decaf Earl. I'm on a mini-vacation and am settling with microwave water and bagged teas...

Could be worse.

I voted for two but I forgot about a little bit of pu-erh sent to me by a rather intense pu drinking tea chatter. I started the tea on friday night, it still hadn't given up by saturday so I stuck some bubbling water in the pot on saturday night and had a nice cold cup of old pu-erh before breakfast.

That set me up for a good tea day mixed with a little diy, only two more teas since but they have been enduring to the point of my wife calling me names centering around the fact that I may be a little sweaty.

Oh, and Happy Birthday RussianSoul. May you live to a hundred years as they say in Poland and in my parents house in Scotland, although with the way life expectancy is heading I do wonder if that may become a little limiting soon.

Happy Bday, RussianSoul!

Sundays are usually rushed so I'll do good to get in 1 tea today.

Hope your trip's going well, omegapd & that the nice weather holds out for you.

Happy birthday, Russian Soul.
What a great gift!

I had to answer 1 on the poll. I always dream of 2 or 3 but generally am lucky to get to 1.

Today I'm still trying to choose - when you can only pick 1 the pressure is really on. I think maybe back to the Extra Green Genmaicha.
