Now onto yesterday’s backlog!

This was my timolino companion for my interview yesterday (which was just weird, by the way – they were really behind in their interviews so I didn’t have my interview until 2:00PM despite being scheduled for 11:45AM – if I wasn’t so in need of word as soon as possible I would have just left).

My sleep schedule is really out of wack right now though. Basically, I’m sleeping four(ish) hour between 5PM and 9PM and then four(ish) hours between 6AM and 10AM. I have no idea how that happened, but it did. And I don’t like it.

This was it’s usual consistent self, though.

Fjellrev

What a weird sleeping schedule, indeed, but some people choose to do that. My high school social teacher used to come home from school and sleep for four hours, then mark and do whatever until 3 or 4am, then sleep until it’s time to go back to work.

Received this one from Roswell Strange.

This one smells very minty. To me it is spearmint and peppermint.

The tea initially tastes like strong mint. It seems spicey to me, but I would not call it pepper. It quickly fades into what I would describe as the mate taste. I find there is an earthy taste and feel to mate. There is kind of a creaminess to it that reminds me of vanilla or tobacco (I know those two things are very different from each other but those are the tastes I am getting). I am finding that this mint blend is not very sweet, which actually I like.

I’ve really been craving a minty tea lately and this is all I really have. I’d love to find a fabulous chocolate mint tea, preferably black. Any suggestions?

Mate Mint is a great choice if you want something with a spearmint punch and gives you energy. The dry leaf smells strongly of spearmint, but not in a medicinal way at all.

When it comes to taste, it’s also very straightforward: spearmint. There is a bit of mate in the background but I’ve personally always liked the taste of it. To me, it’s almost not even there.

Let me tell you, when it comes to function, this stuff really works. My last semester of undergrad was quite rough. Between finishing up courses for my honours double major, writing a thesis, working part-time, and being the VP of an on-campus club, those eyes needed to stay open. I sadly needed to turn to a certain drug: caffeine. I resorted to caffeine pills for a while but those only worked like the first two times, so then I turned to this. And I’m so glad that I tried this. It gives you a real buzz, but a healthy one, if that makes sense. So mate in general for the win!

I’m a big fan of Read my Lips (Davids Tea) for mint and chocolate. It’s a black tea base, and has little candy kisses in it which seem to just make it cuter. Worth a shot!

Fjellrev

Thanks, I thought of that one earlier! Had it a long time ago and liked it, but don’t recall the chocolate really being there. Will need to try it again. :)

Lynne-tea

I second read my lips! I do think you should try it again.. usually I get all the chocolate chips melted and so my cup is murky brownish with the melted chocolate (mmm) Plus, it smells like peppermint patties!

Fjellrev

Alright, you two have definitely convinced me! Maybe they didn’t steep it enough when I got a cup at the store. Looks like I may have to pick up some of this along with Pumpkin Chai, which I haven’t tried, but seems to be really popular too. :)

Lynne-tea

Yes Pumpkin Chai is very delicious. I do recommend it and the smell is very addicting. I think you should take some Read My Lips home and steep it in something that gives it a lot of room to breathe.. otherwise I would think that the chocolate would be all over the bag and not infusing into your tea (where it deliciously should be!) That might bring about a more deliciously chocolate peppermint experience with the tea =)

Fjellrev

Oh yeah, that makes a lot of sense! I use a tea ball so I’m sure that chocolatey scrumptiousness will come out with that for sure. Thanks for the input! The Pumpkin Chai sounds great too.

thanks for sharing this one Roswell Strange this just add to my suspicion that mate is just not for me. I like mint but on the whole mate just has this weird strange taste that i can’t get behind. it’s WEIRD…like licking hot asphalt or something..i dunno it’s just REALLY present and what i always taste with mate. But i’m glad i tried it heh ’cause you never know!

VariaTEA

Did I share this?!? I don’t ever remember having it.
This seems more like a Roswell Strange tea

Sil

Oopsy you are correct, checked the outside bag. This is from Roswell. So used to it being from you, I thought I’d finished hers heh

VariaTEA

Lol. Well essentially we are one so it’s cool :P

Roswell Strange

Lol, one and the same ;) Sorry you didn’t like this one, though.
