Aww, goodbye Blueberry Jam! You will be missed

Had this iced and tried to recreate it the same way the DAVIDs Sales Associate prepared it for me many weeks ago.
Steeped 3g of tea in 8oz water. Poured over ice with a touch of agave and milk! Didn’t taste the same, but it’s still really good :)


And I totally saw The Fault in Our Stars today.
My roommates and I saw it at 12:10 and Monica (the one that read the book) was BAWLING WITH ME. LIKE EVERY TIME THERE WAS A NEW SCENE, WE KNEW WE WERE GUNNA DIE. AND THEN THAT CAR SCENE. AND THE EULOGY SCENE. OH GOSH IT WAS DEATH.
Lulu (the one that didn’t read the book) was wondering why we were dying so much and she wanted to hold her tears in, but when everyone else is bawling around you, you can’t hold it in.
But it was a really good movie. Definitely one of the better book-to-movie adaptations I’ve seen! Stuff were definitely cut out, but it did stay pretty true to the book and I’m just so happy that this exists in the world.

I’m still going to hold off on this one and watch it later at home. I like my sads in private.

About two years ago, my roommate and I agreed that if TFiOS was ever turned into a movie, we had to watch it together. And last year, they announced it! We were so excited, but then we realized we didn’t want to be able to relive the book over and over again in just a wee 2 hours. We agreed that if we were going to suffer, we’re going to suffer together hehe.
And today was the day that pain demanded to be felt :’)

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
