Ehh… this is a tea that I drank that’s halfway decent.

Backlog!

I went through a chocolate phase not too long ago, and I just had to try this tea! Smells super chocolatey, not getting much mint though.

Not exactly the best tea out there. It went a bit bitter and it may have been my fault for letting it steep a bit too long, but nothing a splash of milk can’t fix! Decent tea, just nothing I would go out of my way to purchase

Tried a bit of this from the box and it definitely smells like chocolate! It was… a weird mix of flavours though. Nice and creamy, but the flavour was a bit off. Back in the box it went!

Drinking this iced right now since it’s STILL SUPER HOT.
It’s a lovely fruity, hibiscus-y tea. It didn’t turn super bitter from the hibiscus, which tends to happen whenever I drink any tea with hibiscus. I think this could have done with a tad more agave, but it’s pretty good!
A nice fruity tea, and back in the box it goes!

I was on Steepster mobile and wrote this note in the wrong tea…

So yesterday I went in to Teavana to pick up my free tea bc Starbucks rewards, and the employees there were kinda frantic and all over the place and they were a bit impatient with ringing me up so they just gave me my tea for free? Service wasn’t too great, but hey, FREE TEA.

So today I decided to visit another Teavana (the one on the way to my Aunt’s) and I was being helped out by Grace and she was LOVELY. I got this tea prepared in store, and got my free ounce of Jasmine Oolong to take home. We talked a bit about tea (of course) and I told her about how I’ve had like half their tea wall already bc I send tea out to friends and they send tea back to me. She said that was one of the best things she heard that day and I’m all I KNOW RIGHT. IT’S THE BEST THING EVER.
Then as I was leaving, I wished her a magical day and it slipped out oops. I’m totally not a Disney cast member. Not at all.

Mmmm a lovely roasted oolong to start off my morning! I haven’t had an oolong like this in a while :)
Nice tightly rolled leaves that expand like lovely, pale/light yellowy/green liquor after the first steeping.
Just a really great tea!

I like this one quite a bit. It’s just the right amount of roastiness.

Sampling this because I smelled all the teas in this box (which is a LOT of tea) and this is one that looked like it would soothe my tummy!
A pretty decent chamomile blend. A bit too heavy on the chamomile, not enough with the peppermint.
It makes a nice bedtime tea!

My Just Organic Teas Kickstarter arrived in the mail!
Well, it arrived in the mail about a week ago, but I got it sent to my aunt’s house because I’m moving this weekend.

This smells like a lovely spiced apple cider! Just all the warmth and ALL THE FALL. THE BEST SEASON OF THE YEAR. I was definitely expecting a brighter, rooibos/blueberry tea, rather than the cinnamonny tea that I got, but hey, it’s tea and tea is lovely :)
Definitely a dark red cuppa with the hibiscus. I could have done with a bit less hibiscus, but I’m sure a bit of sweetner would do the trick!

((I’ve had so much starbucks in the past week it’s crazy))

Split a venti soy chai fraupiccino with my sister yesterday, ordered just a simple tall chai this morning.

Dude. I work at Disney okay. There are 3 Starbucks I work at and it’s cheaper on property than at a regular Starbucks so… yeah

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
