Up early saturday to spend the entire day walking in the sun, running errands with my other half…to get up early sunday to drop tea and lego off with a friend and then drive to buffalo to pick up a bike fork and a friend lol Not a lot of tea drinking but lots of getting things done!

drank Monster Brew by Adagio Teas

nope. not for me. But i get to keep the tin so i’m happy. I’ve had this a few times now trying to figure out how to best brew it. Apparently the answer to that is, NOT. In to the bin it goes!

drank Tea Rex by Adagio Teas

Apparently every time i’ve had this one, i haven’t logged it OR steepster ate my notes. Which is silly. Had a cup of this today and the rest is off to another home that clearly likes it more than me mwahahahahah Just don’t love this one as much as i loved rocket fuel

Another tea that i have a bunch of, but haven’t had many opportunities…wait haven’t TAKEN many opportunities to drink. This was one of my teas from today – a woody sort of puerh with a little sweetness to it that made me forget for a moment that i was drinking a puerh. Later steeps take on much more of a black tea sort of vibe.

drank Four Leaves Ripe by Mandala Tea

I’ve been drinking this and another puerh today – lazy style in my finums with short steep times while i map out my paris walking/shoppping/exploring. I am thoroughly enjoying this one, though other mandala’s probably take precedent over this one for me. it’s sort of earthy, leathery, sweet and smooth with a buttery element there in later steeps. I feel like this might work well as an intro puerh….slight nuances, without anything here that would scare someone off :)

drank Jin Pin Black Tea by Yezi Tea

Another tea today that is giving me grief. Maybe i need to stick with something else until i figure things out. Normally im a fan of this one but lately it’s been “off” just not quite right. There’s a bitterness today so maybe i overleafed a little or something. I’ll have to have it a few more times before i land on thins with this batch. Maybe just the harvest is off as i suspect this is a 2014 batch.

i still can’t figure this tea out. I keep drinking it and some days i like it, other days it’s weird… that probably means it needs to not be a re-order but it’s not a tea i hate. It’s just that i can’t figure it out? lol or something.

So no real clue what to write about myself here. A friend got me into drinking loose tea and it’s something I thoroughly enjoy though I have nowhere near the experience that many folks on the boards seem to have.

My other interests are cycling, reading, board games, disney cruises, world of warcraft and dancing – in no particular order. I love travelling and am currently working on trying to get my other half to as many place in the world as possible.
