My Tea Collection (Kit Form) by QuintonCharles My Tea Collection (Kit Form) by QuintonCharles
My Tea Collection as it appears in the cupboard. The left image is the 'front', and the right image is the 'back'; both sides are accessible, though only the front faces the kitchen.

I'm not entirely sure myself how I manage to fit all of it into the one cupboard. :O

This images features the three newly-bought teas as mentioned at the bottom of the description of the other image:
Whittard's:
Rosehip and Hibiscus 20
Lemon, Ginger and Echinacea 20
Acerola Cherry 20

As well as Heath and Heather's Apple and Cinnamon. :)
It also does not contain the Twinings collection box as in the centre of the other image, or the teapots and mugs (except the 'I :heart: TEA' mug which is in this shelf with the infusers in because it has a chip in! :noes: ).

Oh right! Hadlow college - what year was that? One of my brothers went to Hadlow college for a short while, a few years ago. =P

Heheh~ :giggle:

Like a year ago I think, she didn't finish there because she missed London and her friends so she just started working back in London. I wanted to go there for animal studies but eh, I don't know :3

nah, they probably don't know each other then \D

Animal studies could be good - you've probably got to enjoy it enough so that it doesn't become just 'a job'... i meaaannn
eh
get through your GCSEs and stuffs bbycakes - think about things later >I

Such a wide tea collection, my dear Quinton. I envy it as I have not heard of most of those tea brands. :shifty:

QuintonCharles Featured By Owner Jan 23, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
Most of the brands? :O
Twinings, Whittard's, Tetley and Lipton (the predominant brands here) are all worldwide traders. :shrug:

I can tell you that, before I met this wonderful community, I have never heard of Whittard's or Tetley. In fact, I've been keeping an eye out for them at all the places I go to, but I've never seen them.
I can find Twinings and Lipton, but most of the time, only Lipton's Black Tea is being sold.
Hence, I resort to Ahmad and Dilmah teas.

Never heard of those last two. I guess it isn't a surprise we don't import many 'manufactured' teas (I use this term since we obviously import tea leaves; most tea companies here like to state that the tea was blended in Britain)... I think I've seen a few American brands, though they hardly sell well. :P
Ah, yes - there is certainly a community of tea-lovers. :meow:

:D I think I can understand why American tea brands don't sell well. ;)

Ahmad Tea states that it comes from London. How odd. :shrug:

At present, I'm hoping that my friend who'll visit London would bring me back some of the teas you mentioned. Might probably be one of the few times I'd be able to get any. :)

This is definitely a Tea-Lover community. :3

Huh... well, I've never consciously acknowledged them. =P
The Wikipedia page is very small, too, so I imagine their business is rather small. Maybe they specialise in exports. :shrug:
Heh - ask for as many as possible! =P

I tend to go to London for theatre shows, though we often make days out of trips like that - going to Ripley's or the Science Museum, for instance. :P

Tea :) I envy your Tea collection. I have maybe.. four or five types of tea. Does it ever sort of tumble out when you open the cupboard? To fit that much tea in one cupboard at all is just insane :D

It's quite ironic (I think? :lmao: ) how horrifically lazy I am and how much I procrastinate, given how organised I can be (I have specifically designed and built K'nex bookshelves and storage units with bits to hold pens, loo rolls, books, sheets of paper, miscellaneous electronics, paper clips, DS games... :lmao: ).

Adsullata Featured By Owner Jan 20, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
I'd call that ironic, it takes time and effort to be organised. Wow... I never really had time for K'nex, I built a few things (strictly following the instruction booklets) and one large, wobbly 'Temple of Doom' type thing (completely ignoring the booklets as it was a combination of various kits)But bookshelves and and storage units would take time, precision and effort... You can't call yourself lazy if you put that much work into something :P

I do that with notebooks. Time is somewhat more useful, I find. You need to use it, even if you're using it to do nothing... If only you could save up un-used time... :boing: That would be fun.

I was quite surprised, really... I wasn't expecting to get any more tea, given how much I already have. :O
Though now that I've taken these pictures, I've removed some of the empty boxes, and placed some very-near-empty ones near the front. :meow:
I can't wait to try that orange and cinnamon one! :O

Oh yes! And that's a Tesco's Finest packet of chocolate tea. The first chocolate tea I've tried, so I can't compare it, but Whittard's do a chocolate tea and it's probably nicer. =p

Though, I was a little annoyed when I saw them change their hot chocolate packet sizes from 400g to 375g. :paranoid:
