Another tea of the afternoon…

After the gym I met up with a friend for a delicious vegan lunch and then I had to come back here and take a nap! I need to wake up to go back to meditation shortly. Yep, it sure has been a peaceful and relaxing day which I love.

Anyway I decided to steep some of this up this afternoon, it’s been a while since I have tried it. Something tells me I won’t get around to finishing all of my 2012 FF darjeeling before the 2013 season comes out. :)

I love the tropical fruit essence captured in here, all lovely pineapples and flowers. Today I am picking up on a slight muscatel. It sure is a treat for me, see previous notes for more info.

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
