I took my cold steep of this with me out today and it was so, sooo good. The oolong really came through and it was creamy and refreshing and just so delicious.

Stole another cup of this before packaging it up for a swap. The green is more prominent in this cup, but I still get a hint of orange and spearmint.

drank Birthday Cake by DAVIDsTEA

I love this tea. I wish it wasn’t as rooibos-y as it is, but I still love it.

drank Milk Oolong by Tealish

Mmmm, I love milk oolongs. Loooove. Of the ones I have, this is my least favorite, even though it is quite yummy, so I’m adding it to the sipdown pile. Especially since RiverTea supposedly has a great Milk Oolong.

Even as I was making it, though, I began craving Birthday Cake from DavidsTea, so I knew I wouldn’t be coming back for a resteep. But the leaves had barely begun to open after the first cup finished steeping, so I poured them into my Mason Jar to let them cold brew. I love watching oolongs unfurl.

The tea itself is just lovely. Lovely! The roastyness of the oolong and the creamy milk….guh. Hands down one of my favorite teas.

drank Jasmint by Della Terra Teas
1191 tasting notes

Today I learned several things. First of all, I learned that I do not like spinach pizza. Second, I learned that I can become waaaay too invested in a show ( I’m looking at you, Weeds). Third, I learned that I can enjoy jasmine!

I don’t like floral teas as a rule. They just don’t taste good to me and the scent can trigger my migraines. But I already have a migraine and foolishly grabbed the first mint tea I could find. However, it mixes well with the jasmine and creates a lovely, soothing tea. My migraine is worse, but them’s the breaks. I don’t blame the tea, I blame the Indian food last night and the dang sun this morning.

drank Superstar by RiverTea
1191 tasting notes

I’m craving grapefruit in a big way, so I searched out this tea. The scent of the dry leaf is pure grapefruit and it makes me think of my Dad. He and I are the only ones in the house who like grapefruit, so on the weekends, we’d split a grapefruit. During the week, he had to leave at 4 in the morning, but it always made me feel special to open the fridge and find half a grapefruit, cut and ready for me.

ANYWAY, the scent of the steeped tea brings out a bit more of the strawberry, but it’s still yummy, yummy grapefruit.

I love this blend. The strawberry brings down the bite of the grapefruit, and the honeybush rounds it all out. It is wonderful.

This was the very first tin of tea I ever bought and it is a classic. I reach for it just about every time I overindulge or whenever my stomach is just not up to snuff. Last night we ordered Indian and my butter chicken was so freaking spicy. Between the cream and the spices, Indian food isn’t something my stomach handles well, and this tea helped it recover.

I love this tea.

Sipdown! (387/377)

Still weak, but okay. Will not replace, but I’m not hating this last cup!

I really hoped I would like this one, but I just…don’t. The flavors are too artificial, the pu-erh is too…earthy, and it’s just not my cup of tea. But the wife likes it, so I’ll have her work on drinking it down.

My tastes in tea have changed, so I should update this as well. I find myself leaning more towards rooibos and herbals, if only for their great ability to chill in my travel mug for hours and not get weird on me. When I have time to properly brew a cuppa, I lean towards white teas (which I only steep for 30 seconds) and black teas (which only get 2-3 minutes from me). I cannot stand green teas, they’re too fiddly for my tastes. Oolongs are great, but a bit fiddly as well. However, I love watching oolongs open up in my looseleaf brewer. I’m slowly discovering mates and falling for them…there are many I look forward to trying!

So…yeah. That’s me and my tea!
