drank Bangkok Blend by Harney & Sons

So I was at Mitsuwa today browsing shelves and lo and behold, I found an unfiltered Coconut Lemongrass sake. It was fate I tell you, fate! Because I still have some cold-brewed Bangkok in the fridge. Naturally the two must meet, so as soon as I put in my shiny new AC I poured a splash of the sake into a glass of Bangkok along with some ginger ale. PERFECTION. It makes it even more coconutty, and really, you can never have enough coconut flavor… especially in this heat. I feel like I’m on a tropical vacation.

That sounds ridiculously good!

It’s almost sinfully delicious—I added some pineapple juice to a second glass and it’s like a tea-based pina colada!

You’re making some tasty sounding tea concoctions lately! You should open a tea/cocktail lounge!

That would pretty much be a dream job! Tea mixologist.

Bio

Tea has always been a passion of mine, though I got away from it during college. A lack of cupboard space and a constant influx of people into my suite made me pretty much abandon my teas at home. But now that I’m done with school, it’s definitely come back with a vengeance—to the point where I’ve purchased about 65 different kinds in the past 3 months!

I like most kinds of teas—yes, even peach, which I used to think I disliked!. Oolongs are definitely my favorite, and I’m an avid fan of earl grey, floral teas, and chai blends along with anything melon. The only kind of teas on my “no” list are rooibos blends (which gives me headaches) and banana flavored ones since bananas are public enemy #1 in my mind.

The best thing about tea for me is how you can be passionate about it and still have it integrate into all of your other hobbies. I like a lot of things: writing, video games, books, sewing, figure collecting, astronomy… it’s a long list. But whatever I’m doing, I can have a cup of tea in hand!
