My dear older brother surprised my wife with ticket to a Star Trek convention today. She had a blast, and she got me some awesome finds, including a Doctor Who mug with a TARDIS that “moves” from one side of the mug to the other when hot liquid is added. I used a cup of Vanilla Oolong to break in my new mug of timey-wimey awesomeness and my Rubber Ducky infuser. I played a game of Munchkin Booty with my Dad and over the course of the game, my tea cooled to the point that the TARDIS moved back to the other side of the mug XD. Still, this tea was delicious as always and very wibbly-wobbly ;)

I just wanted to say that I have the same TARDIS mug, and it is amazing. It makes tea time that much better.

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.
