I have some backlog from yesterday to get through…

Had this while watching old episodes of Bones. I added some milk into the leaf because I thought that might drown the weird floral/orchid notes I was strongly getting last time (it tasted strongly like Vanilla Orchid), and it sort of did that. I still don’t get as much banana as I would want to, though. To me, this just doesn’t live up to the hype at all.

Anyway, this finishes off the sample from Janelle, though I still have BrewTEAlly Sweet’s sample (which is untouched) to go…

Flavors: Flowers

VariaTEA

I started watching Bones as well. I got distracted by other shows. I watched an entire season of House of Lies on Friday and now I am watching Firefly. I really should be doing work but slacking is so much more fun :P.

Roswell Strange

I’m kind of rotating, at the moment, between Archer, Bones, and Winx Club… Just depending on the mood I’m in. Winx Club because it’s kinda nostalgic (even if the art style bothers me).

VariaTEA

I am switching between Firefly and House of Lies. I just prefer being able to split my screen and watch shows on one half while having work/steepster/facebook/whatever open on the other half and so Firefly tends to win because House of Lies I need to stream.

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.
