I’d already had four cups of tea today (which is a lot for me), two of which were another jasmine tea, but I figured my pre-bedtime tea tonight would be this one. I’d worked myself up and gotten upset over something (as I tend to do when I’m tired), so I figured my best bet would be to go with my stand-by “Calm the F*** Down” tea. Nice, robust jasmine flavor that I love, wrapped into pretty little pearls that are easy to handle and easy to clean out when unfurled. This tea also doesn’t seem to oversteep quite as easily as the other green teas I’ve attempted… which, since I am a time klutz, is a very good thing! Hit the spot.

The name’s Holly, and I’ve been a tea drinker since spring of 2013. Tea is my happy place – it picks me up, it calms me down, it helps me focus, it helps me loosen my grip, it’s a little bit of positivity in each day. I do not drink alcohol, so tea is my recreational beverage. I love learning everything there is to know about it and sharing my experiences.

When I’m not drinking or writing about tea, I’m working at a music store and pursuing a Master’s degree in professional writing. You may also find me reading, writing, trying to learn French, cycling on the weekends, being a klutz, or making horrible puns and Star Trek references. Likely all at the same time.
