Were it not for this tea, I’m fairly certain I would have fallen asleep at work today. True facts. However, due to having a co-admin to deal with two doctors in office instead of the usual one doctor and one admin (myself), I was able to finish my whole 1-L thermos today. Yay!

This one is very good, but we’re running low and I’m not sure if I want to restock or not. Hmmmm.

Edited to add: You know, I don’t think I will restock. All day, I sipped this, but I can’t really remember the taste, and while several times I said “Mmmm caffeine,” I never once went “Mmmmm, this is such a tasty tea.” Life is too short to waste on so-so tea ;)

I really enjoy this one. And the caffeine kick is a really big boost to it.

I like the chocolate raspberry taste. But lately, it hasn’t been giving me that extra fuel.

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.
