drank Cream Irish Breakfast by Tealux
701 tasting notes

Enjoying this tea as I settle in to study before my exam tomorrow. The creaminess will never get old. The black base is great, and of course the cream accentuates it wonderfully.

This morning was quite eventful. I have a psychology presentation and paper due the day I return from Jamaica, which meant I had to get my research done beforehand. The abundant time spent on planes will be perfect for preparing the actual paper and presentation. I decided to examine social influence in religion. And what better way to examine than to attend a meeting/service/mass? So that is what I did this morning. I may be a scientist, but that doesn’t stop me from having a curiosity about religion, and overall it was a fascinating experience.

I’m glad everything worked out so that you can go to Jamaica.

That’s really interesting. I had to do a paper on a religion in my first year of university and we had to attend a meeting/seminar. Was kind of cool. This reminds me of some research a linguist in southern Alberta is doing. She’s discovered a correlation between Mormonism and pronunciation, oddly. She thought the religion aspect would be boring at first, but despite being a scientist too, she also ended up liking the religion aspect. Go figure!

And best of luck on your exam tomorrow!

Everyone else was doing something in sales and social influence and it just seemed to me that religion has an incredible social influence so I chose that instead. I actually chose a specific religion, which I had to get okayed beforehand by my prof. and it was quite fascinating. I’ve never been a religious person, but it doesn’t hurt to learn how other people view the world.

And thanks!

Bio

Lover of tea, animals, the ocean (http://eastcoastbest.tumblr.com/), science, travel, and all things summer.

That’s my mug! I may have a slight love of Star Trek.

I love black teas. I pretty well always drink my tea straight. I’m also fond of herbals, but they rarely make my permanent collection. I prefer my tea hot, but occasionally I’ll cold brew.

Oolongs I enjoy, but I’m not generally in the mood for them. I only truly enjoy subtly fruity flavoured greens. Whites have to be pretty amazing (see Butiki’s White Rhino).

Pu’erhs I’m working on at a snail’s pace, but so far I’m not loving them. Rooibos/honeybush have to be well hidden for me to enjoy them. Mates and are not for me at all.

Likes:
Coconut, creaminess, yogurt, toffee, cacao (true dark chocolate flavour), rhubarb.

Dislikes:
Any smokiness, bergamot, flowers (rose, jasmine, chamomile), hibiscus is hit and miss.
