I…I don’t even know.

I honestly don’t. The dry smell is amazing as in it’s something I want to sniff all day, but not necessarily something I want to drink.

I don’t like overly floral teas. Well, I usually don’t. Jasmine and other floral teas just taste like perfume to me, but this…this is a lovely balance. The more I drink of it, the more I like it. Hrmm.

At this point it’s been sitting out for so long that it’s cold, but I think I prefer it that way. I am enjoying the way the different flavors mix. The floral rose combining with the creamy coconut and licorice and the way the chili just gives a hint of heat on the back of my tongue…this may be a good summer tea for me.

I reached for this as my stomach was giving me trouble and it has fennel in it. It did help my tummy, for what it’s worth, and it has had a bit of a calming effect, so shrugs who knows.

I’m going to try and finish the rest of my 10 grams, but I don’t think this is a restock for me. However, I might get more just to use a potpourri! I love the smell of it! But the enjoyment of this cup is quickly fading.

Isn’t it just odd like that? I couldn’t figure out what I thought about it at all!

Formerly aisling of tea, now you can call me ele .

“You can forgive a murder, but never a mistake while preparing tea.” Chinese proverb

Labels? Here you go: Femme, Wife, Lesbian, Homemaker, Happy. Don’t forget tea fanatic!

New label as of May, 2015: Diabetic. I’m using tea to satisfy my sweet tooth cravings and keep me hydrated without hurting my system or messing with my blood sugar.

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 five! 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), a tuxedo cat (and the only boy in the house) Prince Erik Darien Darjeeling (JiJi) 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 stevia 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.
