I just click "new tab" on all the forums with new messages and crawl down the forums like that. No particular order.

Hey Chip, what's with the new TeaChat URL Logo? You know, the mini-jpg that appears to the left of the URL in your browser (or at the beginning of tabs). It used to be adagio's G-clef symbol.... now.... I'm not sure what it is.

Maybe we can have a guessing contest!

It looks like a blue boy holding a red balloon? Or maybe an 'aladdin' style lamp blowing a red bubble...? :lol:

Strange, Drax, I still see the old orange mini-logo!

I usually start browsing TeaChat in the green tea forum. I sort of hop around wherever looks interesting after that.

I'm drinking the very last of the shinchas I bought this year - some organic Kumamoto Jo shincha from Yuuki-cha. Now that I'm out of shincha I'm anxiously awaiting the arrival of my first order of sencha for the year.

Began the TD with a "return to sender" OTTI sample of Xell's shincha Yame Fukamushi with the Mrs.

This way I always get only all posts i didn't read yet
I do nearly the same thing--I type tea into my searchbar of firefox and my teachat bookmark pops up, http://www.teachat.com/search.php?searc ... ive_topics.

Aoi sencha this morning. Still hanging out mostly on the greener side of things--yesterday two rounds of Mao Xie oolong from Jing Tea Shop, and some Yunnan Mao Feng from Norbu.

Huh, wouldn't you know, it went back to normal... I knew I should have taken a screen shot.

Anyhoo, I got to go home early today because of the hurricane. Fortunately I took care of all the chores yesterday. It's going to be an exciting weekend, what with all the 80+mph winds...! Sounds like a perfect reason to stay indoors and drink tea.

I generally click on the "new messages' button and read all the threads that sound interesting.

I live in a flood zone so I'm evacuating with my cats this evening well ahead of Hurricane Irma. I don't have a car so I don't want to take a chance with taxi problems tomorrow. Right now I'm enjoying a cup of Tai Ping Hou Kui, which might be my last tea for a few days. Which will I miss more - tea or an Internet connection?

I usually go to my posts first, then to unanswered posts, then to active posts, then browsey around the sections

2003 hk henry 7542 from houde...nice, inkstick indeed when I stick my nose into the pot, enjoyed it 6g 240ml yixing at work yesterday , I've read reviews of people 3 years or so ago saying this thing was very bitter, at least when I brewed it not too dense, longer infusions it was just fine, simular in bitterness to a 99 toucha I had recently, enjoyed it, unfortuntely could not propperly finish it because I had to go

Today at work...unknown hmt. This stuff is wonderful drinking , goes down so easy, no need to worry about drinking on an empty stomach, more oxidized then many hmt, just absorbs so well

Hope you all stay safe and dry on the east coast don't get blown away :shock:
