I’m a geek…if you follow me, you should get used to it. I’m not ashamed of it. Hehe.

This team was out of this world. (Ducks rotten tomatoes) It holds the distinction of being one of the only green teas that I actually enjoy. The tasting notes are light and never overpowering. The strawberry is natural and I was happily surprised that the ginger flavor was not strong at all. I probably wouldn’t have ordered this on my own because of the ginger, but it was one of the teas that I won in Butiki’s tea giveaway with Whispering Pines, and I am so happy it was included!

I have noticed that green tea makes me feel slightly dizzy, but I don’t have that reaction with other types of teas…it’s weird. Maybe I get high off of green tea? Haha. I guess there could be worse things in life!

Bio

I just started drinking loose tea this year…and by “drinking” I mean, “completely obsessed” with no hope or want of redemption.

One experience with some rooibos and an infuser to show me just how easy it was, and that was all she wrote.

The only tea I ever had before this year was bagged Earl Grey, that one bad experience was enough to put me off tea for life. Turns out, after some trial and error, I discovered I just don’t like bergamot.

All other tea is fair game. I am enjoying expanding my horizons, and I would love to do a swap if anyone is willing to give a newbie a shot! Check out my cupboard and let me know if you are interested in anything!

Tea Ratings:
100-90 – DRINK ALL THE TEA!!! Always in my cupboard. I would cry if discontinued.
80-89 – Very good tea. I probably stock this year round in small quantities.
70-79 – Good tea, but not a “WOW” tea
60-69 – I can appreciate that this is good tea…just not a tea I enjoy
59 or below – No thank you.

As far as life outside of tea goes…I am a fangirl at heart.

I love BBC Sherlock and all things Johnlock.

I also love Doctor Who. 3, 9 & 10 are my favorites…I have high hopes for 12. My favorite companions are River Song, Donna Noble and Mickey the Idiot.

I am an adult fan of Lego, as is my husband bgrinham. We collect Classic Space, Classic Star Wars, Harry Potter, Trains, and the Modular Buildings.

Feel free to say hello! I look forward to meeting people who share in my obsessions! Tea or otherwise!
