Sipdown!! (94)

I am applying to schools for next year and that means supplemental application questions which suck. However, I was not too stressed as I have one application left to worry about and I thought I had already written 2/3 of the questions. Except, when I opened my computer to find the question, it has gone missing as in no where to be found as in I need to completely redo it! And since I worked on it weeks ago, I really don’t remember what I wrote. So I am sad and just want to be done.

At least I have finished something and that is this tea. It was okay but really nothing special so I am not sad to see it go. It has a nice pumpkin spice flavor but the combination of spice, caramel, and marshmallow is a little much for one blend. Plus, it can taste really off when not brewed properly. So, so long Caramel Pumpkin Marshmallow, it was fun while it lasted but we won’t be meeting again.

I know you are not asking for advice… but here goes. As a person who is on several scholarship committees, remember to look up the school’s mission statement and anything else from their website. Think about that while you are writing answers to their questions. It might give you an edge. :) Good luck!

Good luck on your applications. Filling them out is awful, but it’s nice when the acceptance letter arrives! :)

Thank you carol who. I actually have heard that before so have already thoroughly gone through the website for anything I can incorporate into my answers.

And Veronica, hopefully the letter shows up but we shall see. One thing at a time :)

My way of thinking: When you write it all over again, it will be even better than the first time would have been :)

I hope so, Terri. Unfortunately the last time I had a lot of time to write and rewrite and perfect it. Now I am cutting it close but I can’t stress too much as I also have work for class to do. I will write it and hope for the best.

My cupboard has grown exponentially since joining this site and I have a lot to share. Feel free to snoop through my cupboard and message me if anything interests you – I am always happy to swap!

For me, flavored teas are definitely my sweet spot. I will most often reach for black teas and rooibos or honeybush blends but I do keep some flavored whites and greens around for when the mood strikes. I have a few herbals/tisanes but most of the time I find myself disappointed by them as they often smell deliciously sweet and then end up tasting tart/sour. I have a little bit of an aversion to pu’erh and oolong teas. I am also wary of florals, earl greys, and chai teas. I do not like overpowering citrus flavors nor do I usually like hibiscus, licorice or chamomile. I love dessert teas – caramel, vanilla, toffee, cookie, cream, and other sweet flavors make me smile. Fruits like strawberry, peach, mango, and pineapples will often catch my attention as well.

I have also realized that although I really enjoy adding frothed milk to some of my teas, if I do not like the tea with zero additives (just in plain water without milk or sugar), I probably won’t drink it. The one exception is flavored matchas which I will happily drink in cold milk if I do not like it mixed with hot water. My theory is if the tea can’t stand on its own then it is not for me and I will more than likely try to swap it out for something else.
