I’ve been super boring and just drinking familiar old teas lately. I’ve been so busy and tired the past few weeks that I don’t have time to really taste and appreciate a new tea and I really don’t want to waste the experience. However, I miss my Steepster friends so I’m just logging this tea for the sake of checking in. :) It’s the same apple walnut cake flavor as I experienced before. Pretty pink color. Very nice and caffeine free. Which is important because I have barely slept in the last 36 hours. I think I passed out on the way home today and may have drooped onto fellow train passengers. eep.

This weekend, I flew to California for a surprise birthday party for my step father in law. It was fun, but I didn’t return home until this morning. Landed at JFK airport at 5:40 AM. Then I changed into my work clothes in the airport bathroom and went straight to my first day as a permanent employee at my new job. Did I mention that I absolutely cannot sleep on airplanes? Most exhausting day ever. I am also operating in a sort of dreamy haze. I hope I retain all the info they threw at me today. I’m feeling a bit overwhelmed. I hope it’s only because I’m so sleep deprived.

Good news is, my new group and I went for lunch together and had some ice breaker conversations. We were each supposed to tell a little known fact about ourselves. I mentioned that I’m really into tea of all sorts. More than half my new colleagues said something along the lines of “me too!” I’m hoping to have tea time with my new colleagues! One of them said he would bring in his variable temp kettle. yaay.

I do find my two bosses kind of intimidating, but I hope that will wear off. I think it’s because they seem to demand such a high standard that I’m afraid I won’t measure up.

Anyway, this is a nice tea to end the night. I’m off to bed. Hope you’re all well. :)

I’m also raising the rating because even though it doesn’t taste as expected, it’s still quite nice.

I think I may like to try this one someday. Your description of what it did for you makes me think it might be a nice one to fall back on when I need something to, well, fall back on. :)

Bio

I came from a tea drinking family, but I never appreciated the different qualities and varieties of tea until older. All that time wasted! But I guess I needed to be mature enough to appreciate the tea experience. :)

My favorite teas are green oolongs and white tea. I also love greens, especially gyokuro. I have a huge appreciation for rooibos and honeybush as they are often that only thing I can drink in the evening. I am a relatively new convert to black teas. This is unfortunate for my wallet but extremely wonderful for my palate. :)

In any case, I have a love for both flavored and unflavored teas. They are different experiences for sure, but both enjoyable. I find that it often depends on my mood.

I am on a quest to find a tea that will win my husband over. I think I’m making some headway…
