And another Hobbit tea sipped down!!

So I only had 2g of this tea left, and usually if I have this little tea for a sipdown, I usually drink out of one of my favourite mugs, the topsy turvy Alice in Wonderland mug:

I heard the kettle tick and my hand kinda nudged my mug a little and…

Dude. I was actually pretty sad, but then after a minute of sadness, I remembered I’m starting with Disney again in less than a month soooo I’ll just have to visit Downtown Disney after Traditions so I can replace this mug! This was actually the first thing I purchased when I was a Cast Member in Florida, and no this is for SURE going to be my first purchase as a CM in California!
I was more upset with the fact that this was the PERFECT size for my sipdowns. All my other ones are either too big or too small.
But when I went home over the weekend, I brought this little beauty with me and it actually holds the same amount as my topsy turvy mug, surprisingly! Say hello to my Mickey Butt mug, everyone :)

Yes. Like 75% of my mug collection is Disney and I love it oh so very much :)


This tea is okay? I like picked out the apple pieces and ate it a couple months back ahha. But this isn’t my favourite Hobbit blend, but it’s decent. Sorta turned a bit sour to me though. These black/green blends, dang. Totally burnt the gunpowder but ehh, what can I do? Burnt and oversteeped. I’m the worst person ever.

Preparation
Boiling 4 min, 45 sec 2 g 8 OZ / 236 ML

It was my favourite! But I was afraid of purchasing it at first. It was screaming to get toppled over since the base was so narrow! But the cuteness took over and I bought it haha. Two days later, Disney was all out of stock!

Super cute!

Cutest. Mug. Ever.

I love that mug. Do you know if I might be able to get one at the local Disney Store at the mall?

I checked the bottom of my mug and it is a Disney Authentic, and with that stamp, I thought it was exclusive to the parks, but I looked online and they have a couple Authentic Disneys available! But none were this mug :(

If anything, if you reeeallyyy want this mug, I could totally buy you one and ship it to you! And just pay me back in tea or something hehe :)

Dude. That’s $30!? I didn’t know people would up the price so much!
Disney mugs are usually in the $12.95 range so definitely waaay cheaper than amazon!

Are you serious?? That’s over twice the price!! So not cool

Dude I know. They put a 6 item limit on all their merch for this reason. You should check out the prices for their limited edition pins! My friend collects pins and we celebrated May the 4th a couple years back in the parks. Bought for $13, on amazon for $75!!

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

Location

Disneyland. Literally.
