My fiftieth tasting note! * dance * (…That’s scary.)

I’m debating on whether I’ll get this tea after I sip it down. Probably not right away. I’ll probably go on pursuits for other jasmine-flavored things, or just stick with my normal jasmine pearls.

The thing about my tea obsession at this point is that when I was starting out, I had a couple of things I liked, and I was willing to try everything. I’ve only been doing this for about three months now, but I’ve found a niche (malty black teas!), and it makes me kinda “meh” about having anything else. Nooooo…

(meanwhile, looks at tea description)

Wait a minute WHAT? Oolong?!? Since when has this tea been an oolong?
It was listed as a green tea on Adagio’s website! Are they lying to me, or have I had an oolong in my cupboard this whole time and not known about it?

Bio

The name’s Holly. 27. Work for a small IT company. About to finish a Master’s degree this winter. ISFJ for what it’s worth. I play various instruments (mostly bass guitar right now), attempt to write songs that I’m too scared to play for anyone, and I’m currently taking voice lessons. I also enjoy starting various hobbies, wearing monochromes, writing, cooking, taking walks, and various and sundry other things…

I’ve been a tea drinker since spring of 2013. Tea is a source of happiness, positivity, curiosity, and relaxation (…and caffeine) for me.

I’ve been on and off this site over the years, and I even had a separate tea blog at one point. For now, I’m just working on getting back in the habit of enjoying tea regularly and to its fullest.

Love: Malty Chinese black teas, shu/ripe pu erhs, soft flowery teas (esp. jasmine teas)

Like: Japanese green teas, sheng/ripe pu erhs, white teas

Still trying to get into: Most oolongs, chai teas

Not crazy about: Roasty teas, fruity teas, rooibos, many (not all) herbal teas
