Breaking my three day string of Alpine Berry as my reading-in-bed cup, I had Peach Bloom last night. It was good – light and peachy – but weaker than I remember it being the last time I had it even though I steep it long enough. I may go back to Alpine Berry tonight. I read a couple more chapters of Beautiful Creatures last night. The plot is feeling rushed along. I’m not really getting into the book.

It seems like all my non-caffeinated nighttime teas are either fruity, chamomile, minty, or a blend of the last two. I’ve been mostly in the mood for the fruity ones. I wish I had more baking flavors teas for nighttime consumption. Things like vanilla, chocolate, caramel, honey, spicy, or otherwise reminiscent of dessert.

Now my most exciting tea news! Yesterday I found out that I won the Maeda-en 2010 Shin-cha Giveaway. I was so excited. I had never won a tea contest before. Then today I found out that I won the LeafSpa Steepster Select comment contest. Double the excitement. I must be lucky this week. I’ve been having a really shitty week this week so it totally made my day both times. Thanks Maeda-en, LeafSpa, and Steepster!

=) I’m glad you’re having a lucky year, malomorgan. Your year is rubbing off on my year a little bit right now by proximity on Steepster. Love your username btw. It sounds like a candy bar to me – a MallowMorgan. I think dark chocolate, caramel, and smoked almonds when I see it.

haha thats interesting. it’s kind of a saying in croatia. when you say: ‘malo morgen’ to someone it’s kinda like saying: ’it’s never gonna happen’… morgen is german word and means tomorrow. malo means a little or small im croatian. it’s a cute ironic thing that people made up as a way to say never.
i got it as a nick kinda by chance. and i’m glad now cuz it turned out to be quite unique even here ;) and i made sure it’s all mine http://malomorgen.com (giggle)

Profile

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.
