As an RN, I was thinking, has anyone else noticed that what used to be considered quirky or eccentric has now been given a name and put in the United States DSM-IV ( Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders) The next revision will appear in 2013 and will “tea obsession disorder” be in there? If so, I’m sure I have it! And you know what? I’m not looking for a cure! So after finishing my Golden Monkey tasting, I went on to Imperial Breakfast Summer Blend. For some reason, I never made notes the 1st time with this, but I’m really loving it today. Others have done a better job of describing the notes than I can, but it is a wonderful blend, great for any time of day really. I just wish I had a little more left!

I heard they took narcissism out which I find so odd, because it really is a creepy thing to have to put up with.

That’s true Amy, and it is a very controversial decision.

Didn’t they rename it Entitlement Disorder? Or a combo of Narcissistic Entitlement Disorder (then you can re-do the books and make money on the reprints, pat yourself on your narcissistic back for coming up with the newly named disorder because after all you are entitled to fame and a bit of fortune are you not?!)

TeaBrat

Ah, I don’t know

I was joking AMY! I did see it as a new disorder though. My daughter is always complaining about kids feeling entitled.
(Don’t remember which age group of her 8 kids she’s talking about). My comment was tongue in cheek.
I’ve obviously had too much caffeine!

Ha Ha Bonnie. Not sure if it’s being added, but it does seem to be a common condition these days!

Bio

Tea became a passion for me a year or so ago. I fell into it almost by accident, but now I would say it has captured me. Tea is more than something tasty to sip on, it is an experience-it helps create a mood and is quite interesting to read about and study. I discovered loose tea at the tea store at my mall. I was looking for alternatives to Coke Zero and white wine. Say what you will about that mall chain, but I’m sure it has raised awareness about tea where I live, in the land of bagged mass produced black tea prepared with lots of sugar, Atlanta, Georgia. That’s what happened with me, and then I started perusing the internet and found Steepster.

When I take on an interest or a hobby, I go into it full force and become a little obsessive about it in the beginning. I have always been adventurous when it comes to trying new foods, and once I discovered there was so much more out there than the Lipton tea I saw my mom drinking when I was growing up, I started trying many different varieties of loose tea. I have discovered I like all kinds of tea. I I veer a lot toward straight teas, especially blacks, but occasionally drink flavored also, especially Earl Grey. I like flavored Matcha lattes too. I’ve completely given up diet cola, which was becoming too much of a habit. I think tea is a lot healthier. When I rate a tea, it’s just my personal taste, so I don’t tend to post on things I don’t care for. Also, I tend to sweeten my tea with natural stevia (a no no for some!) I am a married Registered Nurse, with two kids in college and one in medical school. My husband is not hooked like I am, but he often enjoys a cup with me. I enjoy many other interests, including reading, gardening, and the arts. I’ve taken up hiking in the past year too. Anytime I can include tea in these pursuits, I do! It has become a bit of an obsession for me.
