I’ve been aching for some of this since Jessie first mentioned having some available for swap, but I treasure it and don’t want to waste it, so unless I have the time to do at least three steeps (western style), I don’t touch it. After a really rough day at work yesterday, I rewarded myself with a cup last night, and then I resteeped the leaves twice this morning, one cup to enjoy while waking up and then another for my travel mug on the way to work.

There are few things I enjoy as much as this oolong. I keep trying others, trying to convince myself that they’re just as good, but this is the one that makes me go “mmmm, I love tea”. Jessie, I owe you an incredible debt for this one. I have a full tin of this beauty thanks to her awesomeness and I’m not entirely sure I can ever repay her XD.

This creamy goodness is easily one of my #1 teas.

edit Also, apparently my Steepster-versary was ten days ago, so happy belated Steepsterversary to me!

Now I want to try this tea even more! Darn it! I’m never going to get through all my tea if I keep adding new ones to the list…

I loved getting it when they had the $1 straight tea promo. Haven’t had it since, but I really ought to have it again.

Ah, tea. My love for you is ever changing. At my last update, I was all about the rooibos and now I hardly drink it. I only occasionally had an oolong and now I have one just about every day. I’ve learned the art of resteeping and coldbrewing and kombucha. I have a lovely little tea pet named…well, I haven’t decided on a name for him yet. I also have four live pets, a tabby cat named Rosabella Francis (Bella for short), a ginger cat named Orange Julius Pekoe (Pekoe), a white and grey cat named Earl Jean Grey (Earlie), and a red foot tortoise named Da Hong Pao (Pao). So if you see me referring to my girls, I don’t have kids, just animals.

As for tea, I love oolongs, herbals, and black tea. Since I am no longer working, I no longer feel the constant need for a mate energy boost, though I do still reach for it from time to time. I also drink less matcha, though I do throw a spoonful or two in when I’m making smoothies. Most of my tea I drink coldbrewed, and since I discovered coldbrewed rooibos was giving me headaches, I’m drinking less and less of it. Straight pu-erh is not a thing I enjoy, but there are a few flavored blends I like. Greens are still too finicky for me to bother with hot, but they make great cold brews.

I am by no means a tea purist. I greatly enjoy flavored teas and I put sugar in all of my teas. It’s just how I do.

I think I’m going to name my tea pet Mr. Turtle. Even though he’s a tortoise.
