Tea options thinning

I've gone through all of the varietals I bought at Whittard, and my tea cupboard is looking very thin. Margaret's Hope, where are you now? I suppose I could just go to The Perennial Tea Room and get some of their first and second flush Makaibari Estate Darjeelings, which, as I recall from last year (before they sold out!), were absolutely delicious. And the Kenya Marinyn is in stock again. MMmmmmm.

shadowdaddy got Fancied Up and went to moonday last night, leaving somewhat after my bedtime as he is a Rock Star and doesn't need anywhere near what I'd consider a normal amount of sleep to be functional at work. He saw lots and lots of people that we know, including Max, who said very nice things about me. I tried to spend a little time practicing for my singing lesson after the movie was over - my lesson will be tonight at 7:30 and I've been a Bad Student and not practiced. This helps solidify the schedule for the rest of the week, though:
Tonight: hope I can go see the 8:30 Floating Weeds at the NW Film Forum (but only if I can move my lesson)
Wednesday: 7:20 Days of Being Wild (Wong Kar Wai's second film, from 1991) at the Varsity
Thursday: 7 PM An Inn in Tokyo, followed by (if I'm feeling strong) Early Spring (both NW Film Forum), then pack for ...
Fri-Sun: trip to Orcas, yay!

Late risers!
I was wondering how long you were out last night ... he said he saw you there and I know you like your sleep!

Once again, I recommend the Tea Cup! They're not as focused on tea-ware as the Perennial, I like their lavender Earl Grey better (and they have ten other variants if you don't like lavender), and they're run by the friend of a friend to boot.

Yummy tea!
Hmmm ... I see they have Margaret's Hope (though they don't say which flush, so I'm guessing it's just mid-season) and only one other estate Darjeeling :-( - but they do have an interesting Assam.

I've got to say, I just NEVER make it to the top of Queen Anne, but given how thin my tea stock is I suppose I could make the run. The market is much easier for me to get to from my place.

Re: Yummy tea!
Very understandable. Maybe restock at Perennial but keep Tea Cup's interesting Assam in mind for when you have some free time to head up there. :)
