You know, I had this great big plan of drinking a whole lot of tea as I was studying but that kinda just… fell apart. I actually premeasured all the teas and everything!
But studying just got to me and now I don’t feel well and I just woke up from an hour long power nap. Going to (probably) finish the night off with 4 relatively new teas, but teas that I’ve tried before and I know that I like.

Blueberry Jam is very aromatic, which I love so much! I think I’ll be going through this tea pretty quickly though. It smells sooooo good! I have all my teas on the bookshelf next to my bed and I can always pick this scent out because it’s so potent.
This tea just makes me want to make blueberry pie! Maybe in a couple weeks when I’m not stressed out over midterms/quizzes/papers/presentations/interviews and everything else in between. Bleehhhh the quarter is coming to a close and SO. MUCH. WORK.

Sidenote: I accidentally left my textbook on top of my teas right before I took my power nap and now my text smells like lapsang hahaha.

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
