Oh, the Skinny. We’ve been through a lot. This was the first 100 g tin of tea I ever bought because the wife and I were trying to watch our weight and hey, it couldn’t hurt, right? I drank it every night for about a week. De didn’t like it, so we were at a bit of an impasse. I eventually burned myself out on it and set it on a shelf. But it’s made a comeback! Around Christmastime, I was trying to introduce a coworker into the joys of looseleaf tea, and this is the tea that did it. Side note: I’ve gotten three coworkers into DT and they each had a gateway tea that convinced them. One was The Skinny, one was Santa’s Secret, and one was Chocolate Rocket. The tastes in that office crack me up.

Anyway, now when I eat too much or my stomach is feeling funky or I binge on breakfast food, I reach for this one and it makes everything okay again. I don’t think this is a tea I’d ever drink just for the hell of it, but when I want it, nothing else will do.

I completely agree, although the taste has grown on me, sometimes, this is the tea you need and want after such food binging! It always feels better after this tea.

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.
