Fancy teas make me nervous. And I guess I consider anything that isn’t black or rooibos or a teabag kinda fancy, haha. Got this from my good buddy potatowedges, who thought I would like this even though I’m not a green person. I stared at it for a while, nervous I would kill it with my roommate’s Sunbeam Hotshot water heater. The leaves are so pretty and spindly! And it smells sweet, not grass-like at all! Watching it brew. Still nervous. Leaves aren’t opening as much as I expected. Smell it…uh oh. Vegetal. Stare at the cup of liquid. Yellow, pretty, does not smell like anything. Try a sip…eh. Add some sugar, nommmm. No longer smells like green things. Smells like corn, just like the description. All nutty and toasty. Yay, teaventures!

Hi! I’ve been drinking tea since I was a little kid, sipping on Lipton orange herbal tea with a spoonful of sugar when I was sick. When I went to England and experienced real, loose leaf tea, I was converted permanently. I prefer strong black teas, but I’m branching out into other flavors!
