Made some of this last night with milk to sip at whilst chain breeding on Pokemon. Initially I didn’t think this would be something I’d want to keep around because I wasn’t super impressed with my first few cups, but it’s really grown on me (especially now that I know to slightly overleaf). I may change my mind and add it to my list of things to reorder…

I’m increasing my rating.

Nice! Are you shiny hunting?

Roswell Strange

Absolutely! Right now I’m on the hunt to add a shiny male and female Meowstic to my collection, nicknamed after lead characters in the Ibsen play Hedda Gabler. I have nine shinies so far, but none from chain breeding (all from in game encounters) – this is my first time using the Masudo method.

VariaTEA

Have you tried Pistachio Cream? If not I will toss it into our future order.

Roswell Strange

I had it once – the first thing I had in my timolino (as a tea to go). It was horribly oversteeped (like, half an hour) because that was before they replaced the broken brew basket and it had sunk to the bottom and couldn’t be removed so it steeped the whole bus right home, lol. It was pretty good, though despite that.

Tabby

Augh, that is so awesome. I’ve never had the patience to properly shiny hunt. That’s an impressive sized collection! Much respect, hehe!

Roswell Strange

I can’t take all the credit – one is the in game shiny Gyarados, and two were gifts from my brother (for various reasons), so I suppose only six of them were actually found by me. My Butterfree and Mightyena are my pride and joy, though! I’m not sure how I feel about chain breeding, though – but thankfully I have lots of spare time right now.

VariaTEA

@Roswell Strange – I will toss a bit more into our next swap so you can try it again. I find this and that tea similar but personally I prefer the other (though I know I am the minority in that opinion)

I have no idea what chain breeding is. I haven’t really played since blue/red came out! Although I do have… diamond? But haven’t gotten very far.

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.
