Dude. I think whenever I make my matcha, I put too much milk oops.
So today I was very heavy handed with my matcha and I ACTUALLY TASTE THE MATCHA, JUST LIKE HOW IT TASTES IN STARBUCKS.
Soooo yeah. I’ll make sure to put less milk from now on because I actually like how matcha tastes heh :)

Aww darn it. I opened the bag wrong and now there’s a hole in the ziptop!
Oh well. I’ll just clip it into place later :)

A wonderful rooibos tea. One of my favourite! And I love the chocolate because that’s what I’ve been craving for some time now and chocolaaatteeeeee

Thank you VariaTEA for sending this to me a while ago! I still have plenty to satisfy my late night chocolate cravings :)

It seems as though all my teas that I chose tonight all came from MissB!
Well, it is another lovely sipdown tonight. Probably one of my last ones.
I feel like the elderberry is what makes this smell so funny when it’s dry. It does take a slight medicine-y scent to it? And I don’t smell the jasmine at all.
But as it steeps, I can most definitely smell the jasmine!
Good tea, but a bit too much elderberry and tulsi, not enough jasmine :)

It’s hot outside, and nice and cool in here. I hate bothering the thermostat so tea it is!

Thank you MissB for sending this my way! I didn’t enjoy it that much when I had it last time, so let’s hope my tastebuds will change! Never had plain ol fig before so that’s probably why I didn’t like it last time?
Well… I’m still not too hot for this tea. It’s good! But still a tad medicine-y to me. A great tea, but I’m sure it’ll do better in another home.

Sipdown. whoopee :)

Such a fantastic tea that I love so much!
Love the gunpowder and vanilla rooibos and spearmint :)
Thank you tons to shmiracles for splitting the bag with me!

This was a sipdown of the last 5g that I had. So sad to see it go, but I’ll definitely reorder when I get my tea stash down to a reasonable amount! I keep saying that. I already know my next Adagio/DAVIDs/Nina’s/Butiki/every other tea store order out there soooooo yeah. It’s going to take a while haha

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
