I am possibly the WORST person ever right now. I’m super backlogged on notes, half the stuff I’ve sipped down I never wrote notes on (but enjoyed very much), and what I do have I’ve lost the page I wrote down who gave me what to try, and UGH! Life. It hates me right now! I think this came from Fjellrev ?

Anyways, this is my first B and B tea as far as I can recall. Sorry if anyone has sent me others, I either still have them hidden in my “to try” box, or I had them and failed to write a note. As I said, I currently suck super bad right now.

I’m currently in full-blown breakdown mode, smack dab in the middle of the worst anxiety/depression bout I’ve had in YEARS. It’s to the point where I’m so stuck in my own head and all these really intense feelings and such that I haven’t been able to get out enough to walk from one side of my room to choose a tea, to the other side to make a cuppa.

I was finally convinced (well, threatened-with-violence-if-I-didn’t-finally-make-a-cuppa) to make a cup, and blindly grabbed this one. Not sure what to expect, but it smelled lovely in the baggie – crisp and sweet.

Steeped, the liquor is a pale green, and smells almost creamy. I want to compare it to honeysuckle, but that’s not quite right. Close though.

It tastes almost like it smells. There’s a crisp freshness, without being overly grassy or vegetal, combined with a sweet fruitiness that I can’t really pinpoint. It’s really lovely, nice and light, a bit like a sunny romp through a grassy field, all in a teacup.

I’m glad I have plenty left to enjoy later, when I’m a bit less, umm, emotional? because I can see this being a tea I’d like to keep on hand. It was definitely a glimmer of sunshine at the end of an absolutely horrificaly stormy day, so thank you Fjellrev for the generous sample!

And fellow Heffalumps, Woozles, and Faction friends – this was kind of my way of saying “i’m alright”. I’ll be back once this blackness blows over and I can handle large numbers of people again.

Mwahahahaha sil teas make the rounds! Remember mister….we’re here if you need anything. Don’t make me pounce on you!

This one seemed like a “originated in Sil-land” tea. Glad you shared enough with Fjellrev that she could share it with me. Was definitely what I needed today (just ask Indogobloom, bless her patient heart O.o).

Just remember… we’re all here for whatever you need. Even if it’s just a smile. I mean, i’m good at supplying random bouts of insanity if you need it. ;) just think about my rubber boots….

ooor…. “matcha matcha maaaaan…i’ve got to be, a matcha man!”

Yes, that matcha of yours has been the only thing to get me out of bed, into clothes that I could wear out of the house and not get arrested for wearing, and out to do what I need to do every day. Toss it in a shaker bottle with some almond milk and I can actually sort of almost function (and make it most of the way home before I crash again, woo!), so THANK YOU!!!!

Bio

Part of the Heffalumps and Woozles brigade!
I’m also a tea addict. Oolong, Pu’ehr, and Lapsang Souchong are my favourites. I share tea with my pony, Java (Competes under the name “Bear With Me”). I’m pretty sure I’m the only person ever to buy matcha JUST for their horse, haha!

I’m on the hunt for the PERFECT peach tea. Something juicy that screams “I am PEACH!” when you take a sip. Ideally a Green, White, Oolong, or Yellow base (I find peach black teas to be too much tannin not enough peachy goodness). Suggestions are appreciated!
