So a friend of mine came to visit. Our 4hour lab got cancelled and I saw her in the computer lab. We both pretty much live on the hill on tuesdays (10am to 8pm aww yeaah!) and our lab is the middle class. I was already on the way home when I saw her and I was like Let’s chill at my place instead of staying here for like six hours.
And so we went home and I like.. the kettle was right there. Loki was right there. It was calling my name and I just let my inner tea lover side of me out and I was like I’m making tea! Did you want me to make you some? And she said yep and wow she was so amazed because I had a kettle and a pot and was legit scooping tea into the pot.
SHE NEVER KNEW THAT LOOSE LEAF WAS A THING?!?!?! And so I was like YEAH I REALLY LIKE TEA OKAY. And now she’s going home with 10 teas and she was really fascinated by it.
SO YES. LOKI TODAY.

LOKI.
SO.
GOOD.
WOW.
IT’S GREAT.

I love the balance of the spearmint and the rooibos and the gunpowder. It smells soooo good from the pack and the spearmint really does come out. The rooibos and gunpowder balance the spearmint perfectly and it was just sooo good.
I ended up making two potfuls of this because my roommates friend came and she loves tea and was all MAKE ME SOME.

So yeah. This tea is sooooo good.
Thank you to shmiracles for sending some my way!

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
