2906 tasting notes

Mmmm! Vegetarian Hamburger Helper! That’s what I’m making right now for supper, while sipping on this tea! Nothing really new about this one – it’s nice and tart and hibiscus-y like usual, but balanced by the eucalyptus.

Unrelated, for whatever reason the left side of my face spontaneously just went numb about half an hour ago, and I’ve just now noticed that the inside of my cheek/mouth on that side is significantly swollen. Not a clue why, but I’m guessing it’s likely not for a good reason. I’d say it’s the symptoms of an allergy attack, but I know for certain that there aren’t any mushrooms in the house for me to be reacting to.

Semirelated, I got home from work only to find we recieved absolutely no mail today! How shitty is that? That means that not only am I behind on days three and four of the Twelve Days of Christmas exchange, but since tomorrow is Sunday and I don’t have the package for Day 5, I’m gonna be late for that one too! Well balls…

It sucks about your mail but your “well balls” response made me think of Bobby from Supernatural and that made me laugh

Roswell Strange

Definitely who I was thinking about :P

VariaTEA

haha Yay for getting the reference!! Also, being on my winter break, I spent a fair bit of time watching the entire series of Parks and Recreation on American netflix and now that that is done, I am seriously considering starting Dr. Who but I fear it will consume my life, thoughts??

Roswell Strange

I started about three weeks ago, and I’m just starting Season 5 now with the 11th Doctor. It’s addictive and really good (but Tre doesn’t need to know that).

VariaTEA

Well I won’t be telling Tre anytime soon so your secret is safe with me :P And I have an addictive personality when it comes to shows (I watched both Lost and Buffy in a month and then watched every single episode of the 5.5 seasons of Parks and Rec in a week) and something tells me Dr. Who would become an obsession very quickly.

Roswell Strange

I loved LOST and Buffy! I watched all of Buffy in a week. I was incredibly sick and ended up stuck in bed for a solid week (I think over the course of the week I got up once a day to use the washroom and that was it). All I did was match episode after episode of Buffy. I actually watched LOST as it was airing, so I had the misfortune of actually having to wait week after week for new episodes, and then months in between for new seasons. So many cliffhangers, and so many unanswered questions :S We appear to have very similar taste in television though, so I’d wager it would definitely become an obsession for you.

VariaTEA

I probably would have binge watched too had school not interfered. Damn school! And I was definitely glad to be watching Lost without having to wait for episode after episode. I imagine that would have been torture.

Bio

Hello;

My name is Kelly. I’m a barely twenty tea drinker and reviewer living in Saskatchewan, Canada. I started drinking loose leaf fairly casually nearly two years ago, and at some point between then and now that ‘fun little hobby’ turned into a serious obsession.

You know you’ve got it bad when you get your hobby tattooed to your arm.

Typically I drink flavoured blends more that straight but one of my mini goals this year is to get that ratio to a more 50/50 level. I do a daily cold brew, and have at least (but usually a lot more) two hot cups of tea every day. Naturally I lean towards black or white blends, but I WILL drink everything; the last half year or so I’ve been challenging myself by further exploring Oolong and Pu’Erh which are the tea types I know the least about overall.

My default for preparation is Western Style with zero additives (the exception being matcha which I drink in straight milk with no additives); so unless I mention otherwise you can assume that’s how I’ve prepared my tea!

Favourite flavours/ingredients: Pear, Lychee, Cranberry, Cream, Melon, Pineapple, Malt, Roasty

Least favourite flavours/ingredients:
Lemongrass, ginger/“Chai” in general, raisins, overly vegetal, chamomile, sometimes mango or peach

I also have a severe allergy to mushrooms; as such I do not drink Kombucha teas!

Currently exploring/looking to try: Straight Pu’Erh or Dark/Roasted Oolong, Sweet Potato flavoured blends, and anything with Goji berries

I also write reviews for SororiTea Sisters! Typically what I post there is more edited, focused and expanded reviews of what I’m posting here. Unless I was sent a tea specifically to review for the blog, I will post here first.

If the tea was sent to me specifically to review there then the full review will only be posted there, and my Steepster review will just contain a snippet of the review and a link to the full review on the SS site.
