drank White Whisper by Phoenix Tea Shop
2578 tasting notes

Thanks to Phoenix Tea Shop for sending me this sample. I finished it off today but I can’t say there was anything totally remarkable about it. Not rating it because I still don’t know if my tastebuds are feeling all too perky and back to normal. :((

Garret

what up wit da tathebuds, Amy?!?!?!?!

TeaBrat

Aww, you missed all the drama, my boyfriend and I broke up and I’ve been in a big funk. :(

Garret

Uggggghhhhh!!!! Did this happen when I was away on my meditation retreat? Well, my friend, I recently ended a relationship of 10 years… these things can be difficult. I highly recommend a book called “storms can’t hurt the sky”. I think, knowing a little about you, that you would value the book. I recommend it to a lot of people in my massage practice and friends. They have all come away with it with great things to say. I don’t call ’em relation"trips" for nothing!

I wish you nothing but joy. Had you been together for long? Not that it really matters cause it can be hard breaking up after a week as well as 10 years :)

TeaBrat

Yeah, it must have been. Wow, 10 years is a long time, we were together for 3 but I’m still broken up about it. I’ll check out the book, thanks! I’ve been doing a ton of dharma activities too.

S.F. Boyfriend Brokeup Funk Blues…in the Fog! More than the Tastebuds…blech…I think you need to have champagne on a yacht in the South of France! I wish you could feel better!

Garret

What I really want you to do is really take care of yourself right now and you are right on with the dharma activities. LOVE LOVE LOVE yourself! There is nothing selfish about that. Feel it all and know that you have the STUFF to go on from this and rock and roll.

TeaBrat

Thanks Bonnie. :)

TeaBrat

Will do, Garret! Thanks for the book recommendation, I really appreciate it. :)

Garret

And Pema Chodron, too! She is fantastic when it comes to this sort of thing. Podcasts of Tara Brach are really amazing. They are free and she is an amazing teacher.

TeaBrat

Yeah, Pema Chodron totally got me through my divorce a few years ago. :D

Invader Zim

Sending positive energy your way. Hope things look up for you soon.

TeaBrat

Garret – Zencast is also a great podcast. Gil Fronsdal is great!

TeaBrat

Invader Zim – thank you!

Garret

Amy! I will check that out! I love to surround myself with positive vibes and reminders all day long. Helps me stay open and clear! Thank you for that!

Missy

Glad to see you are back. Hope your funk leaves soon. You totally need cute baby animal videos. :)

Ninavampi

Oh Amy! I’m so sorry! I broke up with my 6 year boyfriend and it was a tough time. In retrospect, I am happy I went through it. It made me a stonger person and made me appreciate myself a bit more. It is tough… I wish you the best and remember that you have abunch of tea drinking friends that are always here for you (and your taste buds!). :)

TeaBrat

Thanks Nina and Missy. :)

Profile

Bio

My profile pic is of a pink dahlia at Golden Gate Park.

Hobbies include: tea, making art, animals, vegan things, buddhism, nature, creativity, books, writing, cooking, meditation, yoga.

I am a fan of many different teas but my favorites are blacks and oolongs, chai, also like darjeeling and pu-erh. I’n always learning and expanding my horizons!

Dislikes include: bergamot, jasmine, highly tannic or bitter teas, overly judgmental and bitter people. :)

Live in San Francisco, I’m a SINK (single income, no kids) and love the urban life, but traveling out to the middle of nowhere is always fun too.

I tend to not drink things I know I will hate so a lot of my tea ratings are on the higher side. Here’s my rating system, sorta

95-100 I love this tea and would like to keep it around

94-90 An excellent tea which I may or may not repurchase

89-80 Pretty good, above average

79-70 Acceptable

69-60 Mundane – Will probably drink it if I have it

59-50 Ick

49 and below Nasty
