drank Eros by Mariage Frères

I had this yesterday morning and I was a little wary of it because I didn’t really know what kind of tea it was. As it was steeping it smelled like rose tea so that perked me up a bit. The first sip tasted fruity to me and the rest of the cup tasted like a fruity flowery combo which I found quite delicious. I don’t think this tea actually has fruit in it so my best guess is that the fruit I am tasting is from the hibiscus, but regardless I thoroughly enjoyed this tea. Actually I could really use a cup right now as I wait for a scanner to send me an email – ugh!!! Counting down the minutes til I can go home and get some tea!

I haven’t had this tea in a while, but I decided it was just what I needed while doing my reading for my Advanced Physical Anthropology class. And it was…green, minty, refreshing, delicious!

drank Gypsy Love by Zhena's Gypsy Tea

Okay my version of this tea is called Gypsy Rose not Gypsy Love, but the ingredients are the same so I am pretty sure they are the same. I am so glad to have another Rose tea to drink. I had this tea as a little afternoon pick-me-up!

The dry smell of this tea is spicy black pepper. I am not really sure why (maybe the Indian black tea???). The tea also has a little after bite that I associate with pepper although the rose is more in the forefront. I throughly enjoyed this though :)

drank Orange Dulce by Mighty Leaf Tea

This is the tea that I brought with me to work today. I made it in my might leaf mug which for some reason makes me happy – haha. I enjoyed this pretty. It was a little more creamy/caramel-y and less watered orange juice like. I think it is because of the longer steep time. Last time I steeped it at 4 minutes in boiling water which is what is recommended. This time I steeped it in water ever water temp come out of the water cooler and steeped it for around 7-8 minutes. I am not really sure because it wasn’t precisely timed. Any way it was a good afternoon cup of tea and it paired well with my afternoon snack of honey wheat pretzels – yum :)

drank Darjeeling Tea by Twinings

So I wasn’t planning on buying this this morning but I guess I was so tired that I just went into automatic mode – haha. Oh well. It was quite good. I actually brought my own mug and tea to work today which is what I was planning on having first thing in the morning, but I am here for a while longer so I am sure I will find the time to have my own tea later!

This is all the student center had this morning – where is my darjeeling??? I really needed the caffeine so this wasn’t bad. I must mention I steeped this for oh maybe 45 minutes an hour and it still wasn’t very strong – lol.

Preparation

Profile

Bio

I am a typical college student, an Evolutionary Anthropology major. I spend most of my time hanging out with my boyfriend and friends, playing TF2 and popcap games, reading, and of course drinking tea.

I first started drinking tea every morning when I was a freshman in high school. I have recently discovered the joys of loose leaf, and I absolutely adore trying new teas (especially ones that sound like desserts)…Although I will always have my old favorite: big bold breakfast teas and my new favorite: wonderfully flavorful rooiboses.
