First cup of the morning. I spent way too long looking at my stash this morning. Everything sounded good and nothing sounded good. That ever happen to you? Well, this one eventually won out, and I must say it was a thoroughly enjoyable cup. I’m very careful to not let this one oversteep because I think the marshmallow and caramel are at their best with a three and a half minute steep. Absolutely delicious!

That was me this morning too! I “settled” for Carrot Cake Oolong (David’s Tea), but I know exactly what you mean. And I know I will be feeling it again at the end of this cuppa.

When this happens with my music I just hit random. I never know what’s coming and if I don’t like it another is coming in 3 or 4 minutes (or 12 – Freebird!). There needs to be a random button on the tea stash.

That’s usually me in the afternoons… I worry what’s going to happen when my stash grows bigger.. lol

@KS – I love the idea of a random button on my tea stash! That wouldn’t just solve my problem, but it would be a lot of fun. :) Also, I keep my playlist on random mostof the time. I find it keeps me from zoning out when I have a big project to finish or need to get housework done. Aerosmith followed by Beethoven is amazing.

@KeenTeaThyme – Getting that feeling at the end of a cup… gah… I hate that. The only thing worse is craving a tea I finished the week before. :)

Bio

I have always been curious about tea, but I didn’t give in to a full fledged obsession until 2010. I’ve enjoyed every new discovery, and my garden has loved the mini mountain of tea leaves that’s been added to the soil! Some of my favorite tea companies are:

- Whispering Pines Tea Company
- Zen Tea Life
- Harney and Sons
- 52 Teas
- Teavivre

While drinking tea I enjoy indulging in my other passions which include reading (the classics and mysteries), music, gardening, and crochet. I have a small business called the Leaf Street Thread Company, and I’m excited to have many of my handmade items sold at stores in the Philadelphia area.

My Rating System:

100-95 = Teas I actively seek out and keep in my pantry. If you are a guest in my home chances are I will offer you one or all of these teas. Also, if/when these teas are discontinued I openly mourn their loss.

94-85 = Teas I truly like, often have in my pantry, and sometimes restock. These are my variety-is-the-spice-of-life teas.

84-75 = They’re good teas and I enjoy drinking them on occasion.

74-65 = These teas are ok, but not really my thing.

64-55 = meh.

54-45 = I will if I have no other option.

44 and below = Coffee, please.
