go exchange rate go! it’s up a little tonight so that makes me a happy camper, esp since they’re forecasting it’ll be down around 85 cents by the end of the year. BOOO!

This is the last of this tea – the remainder is off to cavocorax to try since we’ve both mostly picked up different teas from RiverTea. I really like this one, though i wish it wasn’t such a heavy tea. I suspect that i could likely use a little less tea and brew for longer, but i’ll try that next time since i’ll likely be picking this up again as it’s a herbal option for when i’m in the mood for a not black tea :)

Why the exchange rate interest? Are you going away again soon?

Sil

uh…since most of my tea purchases are USD based, i watch the exchange rate all the time. I have a USD account, so when it’s on the up swing i convert for when i need to buy things. Since i’m an employee, my rate is always better than paypal/credit cards etc…

Courtney

Ah yes I also do that with my USD acct. We only put money in there for trips though. Not tea purchases, but perhaps I should, since I also get a better rate. :P

sil is hardcore!!

Ech, glad I went through my BPAL phase while the dollar was on par. That’s why I keep an eye on exchange rates too (ordering across the border).

Sil

i figure over 1000$ a year in tea (since let’s be honest last year i went a little nuts and that doesn’t look like it will be much improved), that can really start to add up on the conversion

Sil

…also, if i don’t use it, it’s there for trips anyway so no harm

Haha, it’s nice to see someone else taking an interest in tea-related exchange rates.

So no real clue what to write about myself here. A friend got me into drinking loose tea and it’s something I thoroughly enjoy though I have nowhere near the experience that many folks on the boards seem to have.

My other interests are cycling, reading, board games, disney cruises, world of warcraft and dancing – in no particular order. I love travelling as well!

Most of that is on hold these days though, including tea drinking like I used to as I have a new little one who eats up all my spare time.
