drank Earl Grey by Dammann Freres
737 tasting notes

a classic tea from a classic company, brewed on the last day of the year.
this is tea tasting # 599.

important baby update, i live with a family and the baby took her first steps a few days ago. and somehow it’s totally made her EXTRA stoked on life! i mean, she was already stoked but now she reaches hyper proportions of excitement. it’s contagious and i feel lucky to be able to hang out with her so regularly.
future highlights will include choreographing dances and tea parties (duh!)

I remember when my twin nephews figured out how awesome it was to stand at the baby gate and throw things down the stairs. They thought they ruled the world.

i’ll be honest. i can’t remember this cup.
i’ll have to try again.
but i’m still counting it as “drank in 2013”. i’ll just amend my note at a later date.

(sorry for clogging your dashboards up with my catch-up notes from yesterday. the holidays can be hard.)

wow what?!??!!?
i might actually like this rose tea!
good job ATR. something about this tea is a bit more of an earthy rose perhaps. or could be the black base. either way, i might consider it my favorite rose tea so far. (don’t be mislead though, cuz in honesty rose teas really aren’t my thing. not my preference.)

i drank this last night too. the last day of 2013.
getting individual cups in my belly so i can start the new year with 600 teas tasted. this tea was # 597.

i barely remember this tea. and it turned my water a funny color.
i must have been so peaceful and serene while drinking it that it slipped my mind.

again with the cinnamon!
i think i knew which teas wouldn’t interest me from the advent calendar and saved them all for last cuz ie procrastinated. some that i expected to not like really did surprise me! but still a few of the teas were exactly what i expected. i gave it a go anyways :)

again i drank this one last night.
i bought chinese for the whole house to eat for new years eve dinner and we drank fancy beers until midnight. i was nice and relaxed and low stress.
i also finished the infinity scarf i was knitting.
i’m wearing it now. and it’s very comfy.
so that was the end to my year in a nutshell. and it was just as it should be.

i guess it’s just natural to drink apple teas and compare them all to each other.
this one falls somewhere in the middle of my tastes.
i think the flavors of apple and black tea naturally make a really complimentary combination, so maybe when too many other flavors get involved my interest starts to wayne.
glad i bought it though! apple teas are never a mistake :)

drank Coco*Loco by American Tea Room

i like puerhs a lot, and i love coconut and chocolate, but something about this tea was a bit to chai for me?
i’m gonna definitely have it again and maybe add some milk and agave. i bet it will grow on me. it probably just wasn’t really what i was in the mood for is all.

yes, glad the lavender is barely there. i’m not a lavender person but this tea is yummy.
lesson learned! happily.

first tea of the day, and i loved it. LOVED it.
simple and yet such a heartfelt warming tea. might have another pot right now.
i feel sensitive today and think i need it :)

tea log # 590. i’m totally gonna write and drink 10 more teas.
totally.
new year here i come!

even more of a side note,
i know you’re not supposed to ever talk about money, politics, or religion.
but steepster is such a kind and friendly and still kinda generic arena that maybe it’d be okay to share the fact that, as of right now, i am completely out of debt. no credit card. no student loans. no utilities due. no large looming costs on the horizon.
i may not have a car or a house or much savings, but along with the meaningful relationships and bonds in my life, plus my health and also art to experience, i now blissfully have a certain amount of freedom that having no debt can offer me in the coming year.
i feel insanely grateful. i mean, i worked really hard, but i still feel like it involves a certain amount of luck too.
(i work hard to be good, and i fail sometimes, and i also beat myself up too much, but i try to repair and fix it all whenever possible. my heart my heart.)
i just hope that i am deserving of this new development during the year to come.

I want to be out of debt so badly.

Cavocorax

That’s awesome! Congrats on being debt free.
I know how much of a burden debt like that can be…

OMGsrsly

Go you! That’s a good accomplishment – one I’m working towards. :)
