Postby Chip » Sep 5th, '12, 00:43

Welcome everyone to TeaDay. Share with everyone what is in your cup, with each of your tea choices. And, make sure you check out what is in everyone else's cup. Add a photo if possible, it is always nice to see the brews.

Today... Simply, how many teas do you hope to drink today? It is a simple question, let's see how many make their 'hoped for' quota!

Bottoms up and have a Great TeaDay!

I'm going to try for an early prediction: 4 teas for tomorrow. Will check in again with updates. Today I'm on number 3, and tomorrow I have every reason to expect to do better.

Definitely going to be 2 today. My morning tea will prob be some Mao Jian I just got from Jing, and later in the day I'll try the Wu Yi Qi Lan oolong sample they included in my latest order.

Probably just one for me today as I'm out for much of the day. Likely to be a black tea - mmmm.

I'm going to treat myself to a new Chinese teapot and cups later, so I'm excited about trying them out.

Probably going for that Shi Ru (milk of the rock) from Wu Yi this year. Even though it's just newly baked, but I don't really mind that personally. I try to not overdrink myself these days as my stock is swiftly dwindling... Too many people taking tea right off of my hands!!! D:

Hoping for 3 or even maybe 4. However getting a late start to the TD already, 11:28.

On a semi related note, we will be exposed to kilos of sencha preparing NOTTI!!! :mrgreen:

I guess I am kind of cheating, its just after 3pm, and due to a class tonight, I can foresee no tea once the class is over, and I am having my first tea for the day right now, so I am playing it safe with one tea today.

Today it will likely be no more then 3, likely 2

some of that douji credit card stuff mixed with some shou this morning, stuff looks nice, smells decent enough, but overall it's kinda lacking something, maybe over processed? The shou didn't really help besides letting me drink on empty stomach, just made me want to drink the shou alone next time. Next will be a very heavy packing, and a bowl brewing to see if I can find the sweat spot

About to brew some bottom of bag YS mao feng, mixed with some zhen mei, here's hoping for a masterful blend :mrgreen:

Second tea of the day ... Tenryu, one of the NOTTI Round 1 teas.

Just finished weighing and packaging the teas, and now TeaTime before we box them for shipping! :mrgreen:

Looks like we will at least reach 3 teas today with a good possibility it will be 4!
