Christmas day, w00t! Merry Christmas, Steepster (even though it’s nearly 1 am here and that’d make it December 26th, but who’s counting?!)!

LOTS of tea given to me as presents today! My TeaGschwendner order and Harney & Sons order were sitting under my tree, wrapped by my mom. And the boyfriend suprised me with a bunch of stuff, including the Art of Tea Dessert sampler I was eyeing in the Steepster Select a few days ago! YAY! Can I say yay again? YAY! Super-over-abundance of tea.

Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to drink a lot today at all, since I was out for most of the day. But I did manage to have some of this peppermint during dessert time at my aunt’s house. Honestly, this tasted pretty much like nothing. No flavor whatsoever. I could have cared less, though, because I was eating my mom’s famous apricot tarts and my aunt’s walnut tarts, so it really didn’t make a difference WHAT I was drinking.

But much Christmas happiness overall!

Bio

22-year-old NYC girl just starting out on her tea adventures! I used to hate tea. If you asked me a few years ago what I thought of tea, I’d tell you it tasted like hot, dirty dishwater. Not anymore! I acquired a taste for tea when I started drinking peppermint tea for my upset stomach problems. From there I graduated to teas like chamomile and Lipton. But Lipton wasn’t strong enough!

I’m getting the hang of this loose leaf thing. Black’s my default, but I’ve found that I really love teas that fall into every category. I’m a purist – I always drink my tea neat. I prefer unflavored tea over flavored tea, and really dislike anything flavored with artificial-tasting substances. I’ve grown up a bit in my tea drinking, and I find that novelty appeals to me less and less.

I also am the happy girlfriend of the boy that created the tea randomizer, which can be found here: http://www.jaydeee.net/pickatea.php
