drank Mate Vanilla Mint by Teaopia
1351 tasting notes

Made a cuppa this this morning before getting ready for another interview! It was still amazingly tasty and definitely helped me wake up. Unfortunately, the company I interviewed with doesn’t have a lot to offer. Work all holidays, 15-20 hours a week maximum (which is all I’m really looking for, but still), starts at minimum wage with no raise unless promoted to manager. Seriously. Still, it’s a job. If I get it, it works for now. If not…it may not be the worst thing to happen.

Yesterday’s interview went well, despite my jumpiness! I’ll hear about both of them by the end of the week, hopefully I’ll get one of them and be able to afford 500g of this amazing tea. Looove.

One thing I did notice is that when I had it on an empty stomach this morning, it did make me a little sick, but that’s likely because it had been about 18 hours since I last ate.

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.
