One of the packages in my tea blitz was a wonderful envelope from TeaEqualsBliss packed to the brim with goodies! I laid them all out on my living room table and basked in their gloriousness for a while before sniffing all of them (and having the bf stick his nose in about half!). The next day, I asked what tea he wanted for the evening and he replied with “that one you had me sniff that smelled like a field.” Mm, very helpful! We knew it was from the envelope, and I went through every tea looking for a “field smell” before realizing it was the cute little tin of dragonwell I’d put in the cupboard already! Oops.

This is a nice, basic dragonwell. A little grassy, a little nutty. Very plant-y, which I do enjoy! And yes, it does smell like a field. There’s no astringency even though I wasn’t very good about cooling the water, which is nice. I think this is a good, everyday green—plus it comes in a teeny little tin! It’s just so cute.

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!
