So I’ve got this dog named Mr. Snuggles. On cold days, he lives up to his name. He will literally sit there and cry to get into your lap if you’re sitting down. Often, I just end up carrying him as I go around the house. I know, I’m spoiling him big time. But he’s so freakin’ cute! He’s on my lap even as I type this. :)

Anyway, when I went into the tea stash to get this tea, I got all distracted by the other teas in there. Ever go in thinking you know exactly what you want, only to see all your other teas and be all, “ah! I want to drink all of these!” I had an indecisive moment, but I stuck with my original decision.

This tea looks really strange. They are uniform little strips of dark green crumbly material. Smells like tea even if it doesn’t look too much like it. My nose started feeling all cool and minty after giving a few good sniffs so I’m thinking the mint is probably powdered. :D The brew is dark muddy green. It’s reminds me a bit matcha, but not as refined. The mint is subtle. It’s a pleasant green tea, but I might add some mint to this the next time I brew it.

I examined the leaves some more after brewing. They seemed to have been powdered and then compressed. into little strips. So odd! I think this might make a good cold brew.

Thank you for this unique experience TeaEqualsBliss!

I have a 55 pound dog that is the same way. She even managed to sneak into bed, under the covers without making us up.

Mr. S will scratch at the covers until you lift them up and let him in. He’ll do this a couple times during the night because he’ll get up for drinks or get out if he feels to warm. Spoiled pup.. The other dog just shoves his face under the covers and makes his way into some warm part of your body to steal your body heat. :) In the summer, they like the soft pillows so I often wake up with my face full of dog because he’s decided that the pillow is for him and not my head.

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…
