Drinking some of this tonight. Had a long week, my brain is fried. I had five finals this week; two Monday, two on Tuesday, and one today after my annual medical appointment. Because this week is finals week, a local yoga place I love is having free yoga classes all week. Today was the first day I could go. I needed to go. I was so glad to go.

For an hour and a half I sweated harder than I ever have doing any other exercise, including running. I love yoga, so I guess I put more into and I get more out of it. Afterwards there was a 30 minute meditation session. I stayed for that as well. The yoga instructor for todays class is the one I prefer to go to, he plays the harmonium…it’s beautiful. Plus, he gives out hugs…who can pass up free hugs?! I came home afterwards in complete bliss, but I still felt a little twinge creeping back up into the front of my head from all the stress over the past week. I wanted something soothing, something that I didn’t need to focus on, something without caffeine. I went for this tea. I found that adding honey really makes this tea shine.

I wasn’t able to fully go back to that blissful state, that twinge in the front of my brain is still there, hopefully after a good nights sleep it will go away. Until then I’m drinking this and listening to this video, which is the one I find most resemble what my yoga instructor plays and sings. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6wgkgXR_LMg

Hooray for free hugs!

This makes me nostalgic for yoga class when I was in university. I was terrible and have hardly any balance but I always enjoyed it. Now I do easy yoga at home and enjoy it even more, though I really should be challenging myself more.

Bio

I’m an avid tea drinker, it’s what I drink all day and why I’m here. I don’t sweeten my teas except for the occasional iced tea or cold-brewed tea. I typically brew my teas with a brew basket in a 12 oz cup. If I brew another way I will always note it.

Dislikes: black teas, milk flavored oolongs, hibiscus, red rooibos, licorice, dessert teas, mate, guayusa.

Loves: straight teas, especially Chinese green teas, sencha, jasmine, dan congs, mint, coconut.

My ratings are based mostly on the smiley faces. If a tea is of good quality but not to my taste preference I try not to rate it because I think that is unfair.

I drink a lot of the same teas and will not record every time I drink them. I log them the first time I try them and then again if I did something different and/or got different results.

I also try to keep my cupboard updated to what I actually have for those that wish to swap, although some of them are merely samples.
