(really boring note here, sorry)

Hmmm, let’s see, what did I drink this weekend? We went camping south of Yosemite, and I swam in a lake that was full of sparkly flecks of pyrite or something. It reminded me so much of Glitter & Gold, but unfortunately I didn’t have any with me…

I had a sample bag of Lupicia’s Caramel and Rum, which was absolutely delightful to wake up to in the woods. Tried Harney & Sons Mint Verbena, which was also nice but kinda just tasted like mint to me, not that I ever drink just mint so I had nothing to compare it to… Drank one cup of Ahmad’s English Breakfast, and one cup of Revolution’s (I think?) Earl Grey Lavender, which was the only bright spot in an awful Sunday morning…

Hi! I’m a linguistics major at a certain infamous east coast tech school, I write, I rock climb, and I have a mild obsession with Diana Wynne Jones.

I’m also Russian, which means I’ve been drinking tea all my life — always loose leaf, and always black. Black teas are still my favorite, but of course I dabble in a bit of everything. I really like ceylon, I recently discovered puer, and I’m having a lot of fun exploring flavored black teas (and making silly fandom blends on adagio…).

My tea cabinet may or may not be accurate at the moment, as I am transitioning between locations…

Rating system (work in progress):
95 – Wow!
85 – My favorites. Cupboard staple material.
75 – Really good. Debating whether to keep it around…
65 – Quite pleasant, but not for me. I probably won’t (re)purchase.
55 – Just okay.
