drank Yunnan Noir by Adagio Teas
382 tasting notes

So I am in the “happy” position of having the course schedule of dumb. Specifically, on Tuesdays, I currently have class from 9-10 am and then 3-9pm. THREE TO NINE WTF.

I may drop one of the courses, but it will, sadly, not be the one that ends at nine.

Anyway, a day like that requires LOTS of tea, currently I am carrying Yunnan Noir with me (little known fact: just hot water from the coffee carts costs 5 cents, and bringing your own container gives a 5 cent discount, and therefore…—A WITCH—, I mean FREE TEA while I’m on campus!) It is serving well, so far, but it is a little…dry. Not to mention there is the whole finicky about steeping time thing. Not the ideal tea for a busy day, really. Oh well!

I have a schedule of dumb on tuesdays too – work at a university 9-5 then attend another university 6-8:40 – ow ow ow!

Ewa

We had a word that we used to use in our knitting group when attempting a really hard pattern – dumbitious. (dumb + ambitious) Yep, that’s my schedule! Totally dumbitious.

Ewa

That is an awesome word! I am stealing it.

Dumbitious. Taking on (let me count the folders on my desk) six major writing assignments all due before the end of the year… no, wait … seven; the paperwork hasn’t arrived yet …

Oh yes, dumbitious is perfect, and I too am stealing it for my own nefarious purposes.

Profile

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.
