Still not feeling right, so, I think another tea is in order. I am continuing with greens. Chinese or Japanese???

Excuse me, Tenuki, I thing there must be some typographical error here. That sounds almost like a puerh you are talking about. Next I'll be hearing voices.

I'm trying Might Leaf African Necture (Rioobos) at the moment. I can't stand the smell of it so I have a glass a water right next to my cup just in case I really don't like it. Here goes nothing! It's better than the rioobos that I first tried, I still can't bring myself to say that I like it, too much of a sweet smell, unless that's just the flavoring the added.
I was poking around teafrog the other day, putting things in my cart that interested me and pretend to check so find out how much shipping would cost. Well, I got an e-mail from the owner asking if there was anything wrong or if I was just browsing :oops: .

Most Rooibos are pretty bad smelling IMHO.
Much nicer things to try.
Like some oolongs winging your way.

EEE Oolong! Now I'll go nuts checking the mailbox everyday.
I can't believe I'm almost out of Rum tea and Foxtrot! I definatly need to get bigger tins of those. Is it me or do those Adagio sample tins give you more than 10 cups?

Sounds delicious, who's the vendor?

Oh and for my cup today, it is a sad sad tealess day. And yet i'm staring at a bag of silver needle and yellow tea. And yet i lack something to brew it with.

wow. Well I'm looking for the perfect tea, and when I find it i'll splurge.

Right now I'm drinking a loose leaf jasmine ... Yin Hao i think. Its quite nice, I like it better than plain green tea.

Oh, now that is just not right! Are you traveling?

Some second steep amber oolong for me. Hope it doesn't keep me up!

Tried adagio's decaf peach tonight with hubby after dinner. He liked it; I wasn't that fond of it. I found the peach to be too suttle. Also, I think I'm enjoying the green teas better than the black. I'm still glad I bought the little samples, though, from adagio! Perhaps I'll enjoy the black teas better iced.
