Alright, so I’m still sick so I’m not sure how well this will taste to me regardless. From what I can smell it smells slightly buttery with a little hint of wet grass on a warm summer morning. I kind of like this smell, it’s somewhat relaxing. Has kind of a heavy taste in the mouth and tastes kind of like butter salad. That sounds nasty to me but it really doesn’t taste that bad. There is also another taste in there but I can’t quit put my finger on it. I like it but I don’t love it, if only it felt lighter.

Bio

Well, to start, my name is Matt. I got into loose leaf tea my sophomore year in college. I was drinking some lipton tea in my room when I started thinking to myself that there has to be something more then just bagged tea. So I decided to do a web search and found out about loose leaf (you would think that this would have been an obvious thing but surprisingly it was not). I stumbled across a local tea cafe called Argo tea and decided to try it out. Long story short, I fell in love. From this one store I have started to branch out to all different types of tea from several different stores.

My favorit tea is very hard to choose since I like pretty much everything there is that I have tried. I have recently started getting into pu’erh teas, which is getting to be interesting. I am always looking for new a greater tastes when it comes to tea and am trying to better express my experiences with tea.

Aside from tea I am an actor in the Chicago area. I do mostly theatre and various film projects through out the Midwest. I recently started doing Voiceover work, which I have to say is very fun and easy going.

My number ratings are more random then anything. Since I have no idea half the time when I move the slider on the happy face meter what number will be showing up.
