Aww I definitely wanted to drink Lupicia’s Cookie this morning, but I’m still trying to organize, and I think that tea got lost in the moving out/moving in process! Oh well, I’ll find it eventually. I have to find it!

Got this from the TTTTB
Dude. This is a great oolong.
It’s not as great as I remembered it, but it’s still pretty good! Tastes closer to a black tea with a touch of honey :)


In other news in my life:
Totally sprained my ankle yesterday, but a good night’s rest made it all better! Sorta…
I’m actually going to willingly walk into a Teavana today with a purpose wow. I’m a Starbucks Gold Card member and I’ve just reached my dozen drinks! So now it’s off to Teavana to get myself some Monkey Picked Oolong because that does seem like a great tea, but no way am I going to pay like $25 for 2oz okay. I love oolongs and I’ll definitely make my way through Teavana’s oolong selection… if I don’t pay for it ahha

I’m glad to hear your ankle is feeling better. Take it easy on it, and elevate as necessary. Enjoy your trip!

Thank you! Yesterday was just a bad day for my family. A sprained ankle for me, and my sister fell off her bike on her way to yoga! We’re feeling much better today. Amazing what rest can do :)

Teas in my cupboard are in my personal collection.

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
