It seems like a lot of us are having the tea blahs. I’m no exception. Is it the hot weather? I’ve been trying to drink the teas I have rather than buying more, but I’m starting to think I need some new tea to get me out of the tea blahs. I also think it has to do with not having much success icing my teas. Maybe they aren’t the right ones to ice, or maybe I just don’t like iced tea that much, but they’ve been pretty lame. I was thinking I’d prefer tisanes iced, but I don’t like that there’s no actual tea in them. Blah!

Anyway, I did enjoy multiple steepings of this tea yesterday. It’s a nice comfort tea. No crazy flavoring, which I guess was what I needed. With the 4th of July holiday sales, I’m now wondering if I should go for it and get something new!

Oh, and a Happy 4th to you all!!

Happy 4th :)

I think that just happens in the dead of summer (tea blahs). When it’s too warm to drink more than a cup in the morning before switching to water and iced stuff. Hang in there; fall’s coming!

Bio

I thought my profile needed a facelift, so here we go:

My obsession with tea really started around October 2012 when I discovered DavidsTea. Before that, I had the occasional cup and enjoyed going out to afternoon tea with my mom. I was really into An Afternoon to Remember’s creme brulee tea, since they had an afternoon tea place at that time, which has since closed…so sad and I haven’t found a good replacement.

So, I kinda went nuts when I discovered both DavidsTea and Lupicia in the SF mall, and I still frequent them, though my tastes have substantially changed over time from wanting to try all the teas to being a bit more particular.

Once I discovered steepster, literally by looking up reviews of a DavidsTea tea, I was hooked! So many tea companies I never heard of and everything sounding so delicious!

I found I still love dessert teas, like flavored black teas, but I also really enjoy oolong (both green and roasted). I occasionally enjoy flavored rooibos and white teas. I’ve had a rough time with puerh, and still think it tastes like leather. Recently, after having some really amazing teas from Teavivre, I can now say I love unflavored Chinese black teas and green teas.

Favorite tea companies right now include: Teavivre, Golden Moon, Butiki, Lupicia, and DavidsTea.

Just a note: I don’t rate my teas numerically because my iPad doesn’t like the scroll bar. Maybe someday that will change…hint hint, steepster! ;)

P.S. My profile picture is of one of my 2 cats, Holly, who is a little princess but very photogenic, and she loves boxes, including those that bring me tea! :)
