I’m drinking this right now with way too much honey because, well, I’m stressed. And it’s helping.

Hallieod

Blueberry crumble and honey sounds like a great de-stresser!

I haven’t had this in a while. I love complex teas. There’s just SO MUCH happening with this tea. At first you notice the chocolate but the more time you spend with this stuff the more you discover. Vegetal, bean, grass, floral, mineral, caramel, nuts. It’s like a game of I SPY with your tongue.

I was sent a sample of this by Kaylee in a tea swap. I just tried it and immediately bought 4 oz. It’s so good. I’m alert and relaxed. Time to read.

Stephanie

The good morning sunshine guayusa is delicious as well!

Terri HarpLady

I guess I’m gonna have to finally try some of the guayusa teas…

My Friend Rashad

I really want to buy all her teas, but I’m kinda broke right now.

Terri HarpLady

I understand! Since Stacy takes Paypal, I get to order teas from her whenever I have money in my playpal account from online CD sales & such. :)

I found myself a denim jacket at friend’s house that smells like gasoline. I’ve been rocking this 90’s dad vibe all night. I might not take this jacket off for a while. I feel so manly. Also, I’m drinking this dancong.

I got a free tin of this just for sharing something on Facebook. Free shipping too! Tea in the mail with no credit card required! How fortunate that it’s also quite good. I mean, I will probably pay money to buy more when I’m out. It’s a good looking bai mu dan, flavors go starwberry first, guava second, and ginger on the finish. This is a great tea to serve guests who aren’t tea experts.

It’s been so long since I’ve had the opportunity to just sit down and drink some REAL tea. This is real tea. Last time I drank this I got waterlogged before the leaves ran out of flavor. A fuzzy dian hong is something that just needs to be in the cupboard at all times. It’s so delicious.

hmmm, can’t remember if I have a sample of this lying somewhere…must look for it right now!

Ok, so I just went outside with a flashlight and picked a whole bunch of honeysuckle for use in tea blends. I’m having this amber oolong with honeysuckle and it’s awesome!!

Stephanie

How did you incorporate the honeysuckle? Love this idea!

My Friend Rashad

You can dry honeysuckle and add them to blends, but what I did for this one was I actually steeped the oolong first, removed the leaves then steeped the honeysuckle separate because it needed a different steep time.

Stephanie

Nice! I love the scent/taste of honeysuckle but have never tried using any of it like this. Exciting!

I was given a sample packet of this tea by my local coffee shop. This is the first puerh blend from Rishi that I’ve ever had where I could taste the puerh. What’s funny about that is what it’s blended with is quite strong. The ginger is spicy, but I can taste the leather and earth of the puerh. It even coats my tounge like a real puerh. So I’m drinking puerh and doing ginger shots, I like multi-tasking.

Backlogging (which I don’t normally do). I had this today at World Peace Cafe in Atlanta, GA which is a vegan restaurant run entirely by volunteers. I decided to try the Citron Mate for it’s advertised restorative properties because I had just finished spending four hours in the woods hanging out with beavers, opossums, owls, eagles, and turtles and stuff (Chattahoochee Nature Center), and I was pretty exhausted. It worked, it tasted like lemonade and kept me awake through a late rehearsal.

I’ve always wanted to eat there, and if they have Art of Tea that’s even more reason to do so

My Friend Rashad

Do it! The food is very very good.

My Friend Rashad

Get the Mushroom & Kale soup!!

drank Gunpowder by ZenTea
76 tasting notes

Every gunpowder tea I’ve ever had has been basically the same thing. Pretty good, kinda smokey, savory. For some reason it reminds me of mushroom broth. Really dark brew for a green tea. Sediment at the bottom of my cup. It’s delicious but I keep getting this visual in my heard of some massive gunpowder factory in china that supplies all the world’s gunpowder with uniformity year-round.

Profile

Bio

I’m a professional musician. I tour the country and shake my ass to pay for my tea habit.

I tried a cup of some very good Tieguanyin in 2009. That was it. Tea became my thing.

I love pure teas. I love oolongs with natural orchid aroma, winey keemuns, and most things jasmine. I dislike things that taste artificial.

My tea rating system is mostly arbitrary.

There’s a tea for every occasion and I hate having occasions missing from my tea stash.
