The August Tealog Catchup ! (Totally did not finish the August tealogging in August. Ofc things got busy!) [28 tealogs remaining]

This was the last of my Caravan. It’s not something I could drink every day, but when I wanted it, I wanted it. I’m sad to see it gone. But thankfully, there is a sequel (Caravan Resurrected), which I will be next trying out. Though, I may wait a month or so until the weather cools. This is not really a summery tea and as it’s very hot out here still, I’m not drinking a ton of tea period either.

Plus there is the dilemma of the A&D three packs. I do not need an Assam or a black blend at the moment, but you basically get the third tea for $8 instead of $20. I may be able to push it off until I finish Captain Assam then order the other three pack instead. I will not be finishing off my black blends or Earl Grey anytime remotely soon, despite the fact that I’ve been iced tea-ing the Earl Grey this summer. (Thanks mom for not understanding that 8oz is a lot of loose leaf tea! Though seriously, I love when she gifts me tea. I give her/her house tea too.)

Alright, so I’m still happy with my rating for this one ultimately. It was a great tea! And yes, as stated above, I want and will be buying more of this one.

2nd steep.

Bio

I’m 33 years old, studying pharmacy, and have a surly cat named Bin. I love tea, coffee, beer, wine, and most things food and beverage related. I also love music, movies, reading, writing, and learning new things.

I’ve drank tea all my life but about five to six years ago, my close friend Spautz got into tea and got me more into tea. I drink black teas and tisanes/herbals most. Since receiving a variable temperature kettle from my parents for Xmas this past year, I’ve been drinking more greens, oolongs, and whites. I’m very very new to puerh. That is, I’ve had only one.
