I have been neglecting my Steepster friends! NaNoWriMo has kind of taken over my life, and every time I think about writing a tasting note my brain goes “noooo, you could use those 200+ words in your book!” I shamefully admit that I haven’t even kept up with everyone else’s tasting notes!

But on the bright side I should hit 36k words tonight—I am actually shooting for about 80k words instead of 50k, which should be enough to wrap up my plot. And then I get to do national novel editing month, haha. Anyway, I’ve been drinking this tea hot and iced kind of nonstop. It’s become my inspiration tea. I grew up on Earl Grey so when I think of ‘tea’ it is the first thing that comes to mind, and this is one of my absolute favorite kinds. Plus, you know, it’s nice to have a tea with a name based on a book when you’re writing!

December is NaNoEdMo! Because when you’re churning out so many words a day it’s bound to get a bit messy haha

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!
