Golden Moon Sampler Tea #10:
So I decided to let fate decide this afternoon’s tea, and this is what I came up with. Now, usually, when I submit myself to fate, I acknowledge that it has the final word on things, but this time, I was all like “what no, I want something NIFTY!” So I decided to pretend that the first random grab hadn’t happened and try again. Whereupon I grabbed it AGAIN. and then AGAIN. Ok fine, fate. Clearly you want me to drink the organic green tea.

I believe I’ve already mentioned that I am not particularly well-versed in green teas so I didn’t expect to have much to say, but this tea actually has more character than I gave it credit for. I mean, it’s quite light, that’s true, but it does have that note of sweetness that, yes, could very well be candied pineapple. It’s not as vegetal/grassy as some green teas that I’ve tried, and I agree with some of the other reviews that it would make an awesome cold drink for hot weather. Very interesting – think I’ll take TeaEqualsBliss’s advice and oversteep the next cup, see what happens.

As the weather gets hotter, I would imagine that green teas would become appealing….

I love the idea of fate. Great one! In fact, I think I will steal this approach from you for my GM sample basket when I finally get to it.

I am seriously the most indecisive person ever.If I had to actually choose from between 31 different teas, I’d probably just have a nervous breakdown. So I just accept the premise that I’m gonna pull something out randomly, and that I won’t argue with what I get. And now choice paralysis is a thing of the past – well, as far as tea goes anyway :D

can also be very indecisive at times. Last night, I could decide if I wanted a green, roobios, or herbal, let alone which one. Today, I thought I wanted an oolong for the afternoon but I’ve also been craving Life in Teacup’s jasmine green. Then I switched to wanting a cup of 52 Tea’s Strawberry Matcha, perhaps followed by the Tiger since I just read a several tealogs for yunnans.

I’m not so much into fate deciding my choices (though I just may have to do that now with the GM sampler just to see) – it’s more like what chrine says at the end there – I read a great tea note (and the tea sounds so scrumptious) and then all of a sudden, I’m craving that one!

The Strawberry Matcha craving has been fulfilled. Now I’m eating a HUGE salad. Why do my salads always end up being so big despite my attempts otherwise? I’m wishing I’d made some tea to go with it. But I’ll have some afterward. It may be too late in the day to satisfy my Tiger craving today though. So I don’t yet know what it will be.

I am too filled with curiosity about my samples to listen to cravings for teas that I’ve already tried. It’s been really hard to keep up with the random thing while reading other people’s posts about their own sampler experiences. I really want to try the Coconut Pouchong…but it must wait its turn!

lol I think I’d be too tempted by others’ tealogs.

Bio

I’m a Pole who grew up in Texas, is currently a graduate student in California studying Japan. How’s THAT for random?

Being Polish, my family has always drunk a lot of tea, and I am no different. I may drink more tea than water. On the other hand, I can’t say that I’m very particular about it; I’m generally pretty careless with steeping times and water temperature and I don’t even have a proper teapot (mostly because the lid broke during the move to California ;_;).

I always drink my tea unsweetened and I only add milk in the case of the most egregiously chai-ish of chais. (not really a big fan of milk in general)

Given that so many of my entries seem to be about my morning tea, I felt I should add something here about me and mornings: I fail at mornings. I fail at them a LOT. Therefore I often also fail at proper tea making in the mornings.
