OKAY IT WAS COLD AND I GOT OUT OF CLASS AND I PASSED BY STARBUCKS AND THERE WAS NO ONE INSIDE AND I BOUGHT ANOTHER CHAI LATTE DON’T JUDGE ME I REALLY SHOULD STOP THE AUTO RELOAD FUNCTION ON MY STARBUCKS CARD

BUT IN OTHER NEWS, I WALKED BACK HOME WITH MY CHAI IN MY HAND, CHECKED MY MAIL AND FOUND THREE PACKAGES. OH MY GOSH MY SWAP WITH SHMIRACLES CAME AND MY SAMPLES FROM TEA AT SEA AND MY ADAGIO ORDER AND OH MY GOSH LOOK AT ALL THIS TEA

Though Adagio did send me the wrong thing… I’m getting that fixed now because I want my masters teas!

And because of that I’m pretty sure I’ve broken 100 in my cupboard… Umm.. yeah. My roommates aren’t going to be pleased when they see that my cupboard has grown. I think sipdown night is needed sometime this week…

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
