85

Shock! I’m not a huge fan of Earls, occasionally I like a cuppa, but overall I can take ‘em or leave ’em. This surprised me this morning. It’s one of my wife’s favorites, so I had her make the pot this morning. It was light and delicate and very refreshing! I was very, very happy with this.

I don’t know if it’s mind over matter or what, but so far I’ve come across two teas in the advent calendar I didn’t really like (Creme de Menthe and this one) and the days they were in the calendar, I enjoyed them! So huzzah! I look forward to the rest of these beauties.

My wife was very pleased to see this one and ended up making 3 pots, of which I only had 1 cup XD

I was also really suprised to enjoy this one also. I wasn’t sure at the start but once it cooled off just a little it was wonderful. I may need to buy some of it. And I love how much tea comes in the advent calendar.

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.
