drank Peppermint by Adagio Teas
602 tasting notes

I probably have the biggest headache ever because I’m thinking of what I should get on my next David’s order and I CAN’T DECIDE. I’ve been adding and taking out so many things from my shopping cart and I just don’t know what to get.
Either I get just $2 under free shipping, or I end up with freakin $80 worth of stuff.
I DON’T HAVE A JOB AND I’M A CHEAPO COLLEGE STUDENT AND THIS IS SO FRUSTRATING.
I don’t know what to get and what not to get. I know three things for SURE but like the final tea to get me to free shipping? I don’t knoowwww.
If only I bathed in money, then this decision wouldn’t be difficult!

But yes. Adagio. Peppermint to heal my headache. I really shouldn’t be putting all this stress over tea at 1am hahaha welcome to my life.

So. I took out a tea that I was all ehh I can survive without it. I’m buying Buttered Rum for my friend because she said she really wanted it, I’m getting myself that Matcha Chocolate bar because CHOCOLATE and FINALLY getting my Timolino! I just need $8.50 left to get free shipping and I seriously can’t decide, I really REALLY can’t. I’ve decided to just buy myself a gift card to reach free shipping so I CAN USE IT ON MY NEXT DAVID’S ORDER. YEAH? SOUND GOOD? IT SOUNDS GREAT TO ME.
dude I need to sleep wow ignore me.

There’s only one remedy to a tea headache: fill your cart as much as you can, click the “order now” button. It works, I have tried. The headache goes away, but is quickly being replaced by a terrible «OMG WHAT HAVE I JUST DONE» feeling.
My advice: Stick to the headache…your budget will thank you later, lol!

also, i DEFINITELY don’t want to necessarily encourage you to buy tea you can’t afford…but i will say that for me, no matter how apprehensive i am about clicking ‘order now’, when all is said and done i never regret it.

in a way, tea kinda keeps me grounded, so i tend to be more responsible and honest in other areas of my life. i know it sounds maybe a little dramatic that a silly thing like tea could be so calm & comforting? but meh. i’m inspired at the moment :) (ie jazzed up on caffeine!!!haha)

also, swaps tend to make any cost of buying tea pay off more than DOUBLE if you ask me. …in the end i have the most valuable awesomesauce from the experience = an impressive tea variety and heart-warming community kinship that i couldn’t really get ANY other way.

basically, BUY ALL THE TEAAA! and the Chocolate. definitely buy all the chocolate.
blerg i’m a horrible influence

OKAY THAT’S IT. WHAT’S DONE IS DONE.
I’VE PLACED MY ORDER AND I COULDN’T GO THROUGH WITH THE GIFT CARD. ENDED UP BUYING TWO TEAS INSTEAD OOPS.
Oh well. They’re going to a good cause: mY BELLYYYY.
And here we have my roommate walking in but she doesn’t have to know I just spent money on tea heheh. I don’t regret my order. They’re all teas that I’ve been wanting to try! Except for one, but that’s for one of my roommates and she’s paying me back so I didn’t exactly spend as much as it says.
This is only my second order so far this year so I think I’m doing pretty well! And I used my frequent cup points on Adagio so I’m saving money.
I’M GOOD WITH MONEY AND BUDGETING AND I AM OH SO EXCITED FOR TEA TO ARRIVE IN THE MAIL :))

Teas in my cupboard are in my personal collection.
I’m always looking forward to reducing my stash so swappable teas are listed here:

Tea rating guide:
100-90: Best thing to ever touch my mouth and I want more. Restocking is a must
89-80: Love this tea. Restock if I can
79-70: Decent tea. Neither love nor hate.
69-60: I won’t be upset when it runs out. I’ll drink it but won’t restock.
59-30: I’ve done whatever I can to like this tea and I’ll finish the cup.
29-10: I’ve done whatever I can to like this tea. It may or may not have gone down the sink…
9-below: Let’s not even hide it. This definitely went down the drain.

I love tea.
I drink it.
I log it.
I have a good time.
Lather, rinse, repeat.

I first discovered my love for tea with Jasmine because that’s all my mother would buy, so for the longest time, I thought that all teas were jasmine! And then in 4th grade, I watched the tea episode of Good Eats and that’s when the education started! I’d like to blame Alton Brown for starting this obsession because now I only like loose leaf tea.
It wasn’t until my second year of college that I actually expanded my tea taste buds. Special shout out to Cara McGee, Queen Tea for her Adagio Fandom blends. Because of Cara, I actually started drinking blacks, herbals and whites and pretty much everything else in between. I still have a special love for my jasmine though :)
I drink tea daily. Usually just straight up, no sugar or milk with the exception of chai. I like chai with just a wee dash of milk and a sprinkle of sugar! This little obsession started young and just… kept going, I guess. I have friends who think I have a problem with tea, but I really don’t. Everything is good in moderation.
I also have a mug buying problem and I’ve got Disney to blame for that. At least all my mugs are being put to good use!

also I apologize in advance for lazy tasting notes and horrible grammar in everything I write. I’m an avid fandom blogger on tumblr we have some weird way of talking to each other and sometimes I forget that this isn’t tumblr oops
