So before leaving for the border last night, I made a travel cup of this to help calm my nerves. I’d been curious about it and I hoped the new experience would distract me from my fears. (A quick rundown: On May 24th of 2011, I “landed” officially in Canada and became a permanent resident. Apparently on that date I needed to present the officer with a list of everything I had left to bring in with me. Because I was unaware of this, when I reached the border this morning with all of my things, they legally could have charged me taxes and duties on all of it. Spoiler: They didn’t.)

Anyway, the tastiness of this oolong did distract me into a conversation about it with the wife as we drove down towards New York, and I’m looking forward to trying this again with my new glass gaiwan. The lemon and mint worked well together, but didn’t overpower the delicious oolong…this is definitely one I’ll consider restocking.

I really enjoy this one. It is often the tea I turn to when the 2 year old is being a 2 year old. And that has happened so often I need to restock tomorrow.

I’ve been wary with this one because of the lemon – a lot of the time I find it really overpowering. Maybe I’ll give this one a try after all. :)

I find the flavours in this one totally overwhelm the Oolong-ness… a little more balanced and I’d love it though!

I’ve grown to really love this one. I would definitely give it a try, sarai!

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.
