drank Coconut Oolong by Zen Tea
293 tasting notes

I’m working hard to like this tea, because cavocorax likes it so much. :P I actually do like it a lot more today, I don’t know why. Maybe I’m used to the smell of oolong. ALSO, the bowl of strawberries does not hurt. Doctor Who night!!

Preparation
180 °F / 82 °C 5 min, 0 sec
Cavocorax

It’s a scary looking one too! :O

And no pressure to like it. It’s ok if it’s not your thing – I’ve converted a few others to it so I don’t need to bother you.

(Oh – not only will I send you that Vicki’s tea, there’s a Butiki sampler pack on it’s way to you!)

Ozli

ORLY?! s just that I love coconut sfm!! And I had to fight my brain so hard to like oolongs because of the first one I had being scorched and nauseating :P :P

Cavocorax

:P Well hopefully your brain can get over that. Stupid associations…

200th note! Oversteeped this by a LOT (I wandered off again…) and it’s perfect this way. YUM. It’s regrettably uncaffeinated, but what can you do.

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more

drank China Keemun by Zen Tea

I’m so whiny today. K’s off in top-secret meetings all week where they take his phone so he hasn’t even bothered to bring it AND he’s away from the office so no email AND he took the car and I’m just sitting here like it’s the end of the world because I’m addicted to coffee and it’s way over there across the neighbourhood :P :P :P Saddest Ozli.

But this! The blackest of black teas! With milk & sugar for the self-pity. Oversteeped it but it didn’t hurt it any.

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 5 min, 0 sec
Cavocorax

Top-secret meetings? Crazy stuff!

Also, #hugs. You guys need a fancy coffee machine! Also, if we’re just dreaming, a fancy tea machine too!

Ozli

Yeah, I have a friend who has the fancypants breville kettle and I wants it >:D

(The meetings are in plain clothes too, to keep rank off the table, ideally. Weird! Also we got our NB resource centre package. The cover of the “Welcome to NB!” booklet has a STACK OF ROCKS. “COME SEE OUR PILE OF ROCKS! :D?”)

Cavocorax

Hahah. So is that it for sure? You guys are going to NB? Also, where was NB agan? I keep thinking New Brunswick and that’s not what you mean…

Cavocorax

I would love a Breville too btw, but idk how I could ever justify it. Maybe if it was a present? Or I spent bday money on it and pretended they just bought it for me? (It’s not my fault guys, I could’t refuse a gift because that would be rude, it’s not like I"d actually spend $250 on a kettle but they gave it to meeee) :P

Ozli

oh yeah, K got the official orders last week. North Bay! Like 4hrs north of here. The “near north.”

I think they have the matching fancypants coffeemachine, too ;) jealoussss. I could justify it. Amazon has the 1.8L for 99$ ;) That’s not so bad if it makes green tea less of a pain in the ass!

Cavocorax

Yeah that’s actually justifiable. :P I don’t really need it to pull the tea out of the water for me – but getting it to the right temperature is a nice feature!

Oh man. That’s crazy. I hope you feel better knowing for sure what’s going on. So, if I’m in York, Google Maps says it’d be about 3.5 hours to drive there!

Cavocorax

(Right now I rig my meat thermometer so it doesn’t fall in the water, and then I wait and wait…)

Ozli

yeah i have a feeling the tea maker would just end up like my french press, forgotten and moulding :P (Meat thermometer highfive)

Yep! It’s not bad for visiting at all! \o/

drank Coffee Pu'erh by DAVIDsTEA

I smelled this and immediately thought “Xmas” – it smells Christmassy now because I first had it on Christmas… lol. It’s interesting and it’s ~~good… but ultimately, still not for me. I can’t imagine drinking it beyond interested/curious sipping.

Anyway, it’s gone now & I no longer have to feel bad about never drinking it.

Profile

Bio

I drink a lot of tea (and coffee!) and do other things sometimes, like hug cats (3 black cats!) and homeschool a child (the Snick, Snickety Snickface the Sharkboy) and make art and draw things and watch too much television and pretend I’m not home when people knock on the door!

I LOVE A LOT OF THINGS.

My ratings probably skew high because of this, but I can’t help being optimistic, it is the natural way of things.
