I DUMPED waaaay too much tea into my teapot when I was making this. You see, I was debating between finishing off the last bit of toasted walnut, and taking another crack at this one. In the end I just grabbed blindly because I wanted to stop the kettle before the water got too hot. I must have assumed I grabbed the other tea because I just inverted the open pack over the teapot and immediately realized my mistake. ACK!!!! Now what? I momentarily debated scooping some of the tea back into the packet, but since I had already heated up my teapot with hot water, I decided that was a bad idea.

I just re-read my last tealog about this tea, where I comment that I was hoping for more flavour. Well now I’ve got it! The spiciness is obvious, and personally I love this aspect- it’s so unique (although I can see how not everyone would like this). I still would prefer a more robust mango taste to accompany this spiciness, but instead I notice this flavor more in the smell and the aftertaste than in the forefront. The grassiness of the green tea seems to compliment the flavors and the whole combination reminds me of vacationing in some sunny tropical location with grass huts, and spicy food…ahhh…such a nice little teascape on this gray rainy day.

Aaah, happy accidents! It’s unfortunate that so much tea is required to get some real flavour from it, and I can understand that it might feel wasteful, but oh well, at least it went out with a punch, eh? =)

That’s my mug! I’ve never really been a huge fan of Winnie the Pooh, but I like the fact that this mug is more or less clear. Plus, I can’t help but giggle when I say “ewww …I have Pooh on my mug” and people in the room gawk in horror before realizing I’m talking about Winnie. Am I easily amused? heck yeah!

A little something about my interests? – In no particular order, I love tea, makeup, paper crafting (card making), home renovations, and gardening.

As a rule, I tend to drink my tea without adding anything, but if that doesn’t work for me, I indulge in the fact that rules are meant to be broken. Yep! I’m such a rebel…sometimes I even color outside the of lines :P
