So I was sipping a cup of tea this morning and somehow managed to drop my iPhone straight into my cup, speaker end first. For now, it has been turned off and placed on top of the heater to dry. Hopefully, it will still work okay. It does smell pretty tasty right now, at least.

Anyway, this tea! I’m a sucker for any tea that naturally has honey notes. Usually, they come in the form of oolong. A black tea with honey notes sounded super interesting. And I’m just delving into the world of black teas too! I do taste sweet apricot honey notes in this tea, but it is not as prominent as I had hoped. It’s also a bit chocolatey, but not very much. Overall, it has all the qualities that I enjoy in tea, but in small amounts. I suppose one might say that it is well balanced and subtly tasty. There is no astringency nor bitterness. It’s a very good tea, but not outstanding. I’d drink it again without hesitation. :D

Oh no! I hope your phone survives the ordeal!

Does the Iphone share the same opinion about the tea ? ;)

Mercuryhime Hopefully the phone hates the tea and spits it all out. :)

Can always try putting your phone into rice….the rice absorbs the water out of the phone. I have a number of friends who have done this when the phone totally wasn’t working and were able to rescue the phone this way

Anyone here watch Elementary? that rice trick was in one of the eps!

Mercuryhime

rice trick was unnecessary. Phone works like normal. Yay!

Sil

Yay! So glad to hear that

Whew, thank goodness for that. I had a similar experience, one time…

One day, I came home and took off my outside clothes and prepared a load of laundry. I started the wash and then had to make a phone call, but couldn’t find my phone. I wasn’t worried—I’m quite absent-minded and this happens frequently. I used the Find my phone application to locate it. The loud beeping enabled me to quickly locate it…inside the running washing machine. =( I hurriedly paused the wash and took out the phone. It worked for a few seconds and died. I tried all the tricks Google gave me for the next 8 days or so, to no avail. Finally, I made an appointment at the Apple store. They asked me what happened and I told them honestly that I had accidentally laundered it. After they stopped laughing, they gave me a new phone, in spite of the fact that water damage isn’t covered by AppleCare. So, I got a happy ending and a good story out of the experience (and a new phone). =) It still makes me laugh to think of the look on my face when I realised the beeping was coming from inside the washing machine.

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…
