I had this earlier today and it was rather enjoyable. The cup I made up just now? I don’t know if I’ll be able to drink this. bleh.

Perfect accompaniment to my late night snack of rice cakes (exciting, I know.) Actually, now that I’m thinking about it, it’s kind of weird how well this tea and rice cakes compliment each other.

I keep drinking the same teas over and over again, and I haven’t gotten in anything new so I haven’t felt the need to report the same ol’ same ol’. That being said, I miss just blabbing on here lol.
This was my go to feel-good tea for tonight. I thought about reaching for a chamomile, but I wanted something sweet. Dessert teas have always been my favorite, but now they will serve even more as happily little guilt free (or almost guilt free) indulgences.
I just had a blood panel done a couple days ago :( borderline high cholesterol levels- again. I knew it would be coming. It’s been a while, but I really fell off the wagon this holiday season. With my genetics, and a love of bacon and french fries, it was bound to happen if I wasn’t diligent. So I’ll be indulging in more fibrous fruits and veggies, starting my days off with oatmeal, and trying to remember to get some healthy omegas in my diet.

I really really like this one for blueberry. For whatever reason though when I’ve made this it always makes me want something salty. Or is it when I want something salty I reach for this tea to counteract the salty? hmmmm.

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 4 min, 0 sec 1 tsp 6 OZ / 177 ML

Well, I forgot that I was cold-brewing this. Like, majorly forgot. As in, it may have been in there for a few days… I tried to drink it anyway, just to see. It kind of tasted, hmm, straw like? I’m not really sure how describe it. I really need to post reminders on the fridge when I cold brew :’(

Preparation
Iced 8 min or more

I love Steve Rogers. He’s my favorite Avenger. Do I like this tea as much as I love Steve? No. However, I find I like this with a bit of honey. It does have a nice apple spice to it. Can’t put my finger on why I don’t love it….

This one I have to have with a bit of sugar. It definitely reminds me of coffee, which I always have with sugar. Very roasty.

Probably only have one mugs worth of this left D’:
Which means I’ll horde it, and probably not drink it for a while. I’m going to try to put myself on tea buying hiatus. Or at least get through some of my teas before buying new ones. I certainly don’t have a HUGE stash like my husband seems to think, but it does take up a bit of space in our small kitchen.
Once I get through more of my teas from David’s this is going on the list! I like it without any additions, which is nice because its low-maintenance. Chocolate and raspberry are definitely up there as far as my favorite combos go.

drank Cocomint Green by Adagio Teas

I’m bumping up my rating for this one. Now that I have more control over my water temps (thank you variable temp kettle!) I find I like this a lot more. The first few times I tried this it was, off, somehow. Since I got my kettle it’s been a perfectly delightful brew every time. Very consistent lovely mint chocolate flavor. I will have to compare it with some of my other minty teas to see what kind of taste I prefer, and which ones stack up for re-ordering.

Bio

About Me: newlywed! I studied biomedical sciences and will start up medical school here soon. I love to read, paint, sketch, bake, crochet, knit, and lounge around with my Samoyed (Kenai) and two cats (Callie and Maya.) Fandom nerd and Disney girl.

About me and tea: I think I will always and forever consider myself a tea newbie.

I love learning new things about tea, and continue to branch out and try new tea as much as I can. For the most part my favorites seem to be dessert teas. Sweet tooth anyone? lol. I’d love to hear about other people’s favorites, and where you go for tea! My local choices are pretty limited, i.e. Teavana, so bring on the online shopping ;)

Rating System: I’ll try to stick to it ;P

95-100: Must have! Permanently part of my stash, and will re-stock before I’m out.
85-95: Love it! Wouldn’t hesitate to buy again
75-85: Like it! I’ll enjoy drinking what I have, I might get this again if the craving hits me
55-75: I’ll enjoy drinking what I have, but probably won’t get this again
35-55: Hmm, Not bad, not great. I guess I’ll finish this cup… might try another depending
1-35: eee… I’ll be dumping this cup.
