omg, where have I been?? you’re all wondering right? Im here, Ive been here. Just not posting notes. Ive been sticking very strictly to my tea budget and since I went a bit over the past couple months, I challenged myself to buy no tea during March. And I succeeded! well, almost. I bought this bamboo tea. But Im calling it a health care purchase, for my hair and skin since its so high in Silica. I also bought some supplement capsules from this place. Its like your one stop bamboo product shop :D

Speaking of skin and hair, I’m on a mission to get my really long hair back, the long hair that I cut shortly after moving to Florida and haven’t tried growing out again since I moved away from there. Technically I have “long hair” atm according to cultural standards (its nearly mid back) but Im going for tailbone, and who knows, once I get there I may consider longer, but I kind of like the idea of not sitting on my hair, we’ll see.

How about some more about the tea now? :p The flavor is heavy nutty garden mulch. It’s definitely not like a green tea, probably closer to guayusa but more nutty. I’m not head over wheels for it, but I like it. And I will continue drinking it because hey, who doesn’t want healthy skin and hair? lol

I used to have hair down to my tailbone. Went to shoulder length about a year ago and it is SO MUCH more comfortable! I don’t get compliments on it anymore though :P haha

When I first did my big chop, I thought, wow, this is so convenient! it washes and dries so fast! but it wasn’t too long before I remembered all the perks of longer hair. being able to pull it all back without a thousand extra pins, no little pieces flying all over in my face in the wind, being able to use all the fun hair toys that don’t work in short hair and, for some reason, I feel more comfortable when I can feel my hair past my shoulders, its like a security blanket :p oh yeah, can’t forget the nuisance of my husband grumbling about how he preferred the long hair lol

My Rating System

100 My happiness absolutely depends on it

95 Will definitely repurchase

85: Might repurchase (teas that depend on my mood)

75 Won’t repurchase (but I would drink it again if offered).

65: meh

45: I reluctantly finished a cup.

15: Couldn’t finish a cup.

I simplified my ratings to single numbers rather than ranges because I can’t precisely compare so many teas with a system more detailed than this.

An unrated tea is most often one that I recognize as having significant notable quality, but that does not suit me personally. Sometimes, I leave teas unrated for other reasons, such as I am undecided or I brewed it wrong, etc.

Note: Boiling temp. barely reaches 200 where I am (and a few times it sticks at 195, I assume due to unexplainable shifts in altitude or the position of the moon. . .aliens?. . .).
