I was in the mood for a green this morning, and also for the pageantry of using my gaiwan (I can only hope that someday my fingers will be graceful…. it really would be a wonderful thing. lol).
I found this tea beyond lovely. :)
Vegetal and sweet, with light sugars leaving such a lasting finish. Elements of cooked spinach and broccoli (properly prepared….not the sulfuric mess of my childhood…) mingled with sugar cane and wakame. And oh that sugar cane! Long after the final sip, the lingering sweetness remains.
I have lost count of my infusions, and I’m still loving this tea.

Oh, tea….
you’ve taken over my life, but I’m ok with that.

I’m pretty new to the tea scene, only drinking tea bags most of my life, but my friend ifjuly really got me into it (that sounds bad…). Butiki, Harney, and Verdant seem to be my ‘go to’ places to order from, but I LOVE trying new teas and companies. The variety is partly why I love tea so much…you can’t possibly get sick of it.
Well, that, and the transporting aroma of each cup…. I love that. It’s why I love wine, and tea does it just was well.

Really want to learn about different tea vendors out there, and about tea in general… it’s all so interesting to me.
I’m really excited to be part of this community and learn from all of you.

I don’t usually sweeten or add milk to my teas, so my notes are based on that….also, the rating system kind of throws me—I’ve always been horrible with giving number ratings to things, so don’t take those as set in stone.

random info: music and art are pretty important in my life… i also thoroughly enjoy nerdy things like video games, anime, Doctor Who (the 10th is my favourite…), A Song of Ice and Fire, and random cartoons and such…. and i love, love, love to read. :)

I’m married to my best friend (I’ve known him since I was 15….we were totally going to be in a band together. It was going to be HUGE…), and we’ve got three kiddos. They’re pretty neat, too, even if they try to put sugar in my Verdant tea when they drink it….
