So. Much. Sushi.

De and I were making Valentine’s Day plans and they sounded so good that we decided to do them tonight instead! Beat the rush and all. So tonight was the night of All You Can Eat Sushi, among other things. We ate more than we could eat and made our way home. I was dreaming about this the whole way. What better to follow up a filling meal with than an oolong? I don’t buy into the whole TEA WILL MAKE YOU SKINNY AND CRAZY HEALTHY stuff, but I have noticed that an oolong after a big meal helps my digestion.

We have completely forgotten how to make tea, so we let this one go for about two minutes. It’s very yummy, but drying. It’s a vicious cycle, it tastes so good but then I get cottonmouth so I take another sip and…you see where I’m going with this? But I still love it and can’t imagine my cupboard without it.

Oh, and since everyone is putting their cupboard numbers out there, here’s mine: teas/teas with teaware.

I’m liking that my tea/tea + teaware thing is catching on. I was worried that my stubbornness to reflect both would just confuse people.

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.
