I started off my AWESOME, FANTASTIC day with a cup of this and ended it with GETTING A JOB. Gah, I am so excited. I start at 11 tomorrow morning!

So, on to the tea. I really enjoyed this one! It was fruity and not at all bitter. I only got to drink about half of a cup, because then my sister in law arrived and I got distracted making butternut squash soup, and then I was kidnapped to go shopping XD. But what I had, I liked! I would buy again, if only for the cute tin. Also, cute tin + 100g of tea for $15? Yes please! Some of the other varieties were only $10. We picked this up at the Blue Banana in Kensington on our unintentional tea crawl on Sunday.

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.
