This was so yummy yesterday, I decided to have it again today!:D

Used even more leaf than yesterday, so it’s dark and coppery. Even more delicious! :)

Hello! I just finished reading the Swan Thieves! Would you like to read it? If you would, PM me, and perhaps we can arrange a little tea sample trade as well :)

I do want to read it, but I work at Borders, and we can borrow books for free, so I’ll just borrow it from there. Thanks, though!! :) If you still want to do a tea sample trade, though, I’d be up for it!

Wow – that’s a great job perk!!! :) I’ll take a look at your cupboard, and you take a look at mine, and I’ll PM ya!

Okay, sounds good! :) I have way more than I can drink of most of my teas, so feel free to request anything!

And yeah, being able to borrow books is a big part of why I still work there (even though it’s only one day a week)! :P

Bio

I blame half of my tea obsession on Japan and the time I spent there in a study abroad program. Tea is everywhere in Japan, and I drank it daily while staying with my host family. When I came back home, I found myself craving it!

The other half of my tea obsession I blame on my job as a barista at Borders, where we serve Tazo loose leaf teas. I hadn’t even considered loose leaf teas a possibility until I started working there! The freshness and the difference in quality really turned me on to loose leaf teas.

So bit by bit, I’ve been increasing my tea self-education, and I drink tea at least once a day. I love trying new kinds, and unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on how you look at it), the more I learn, the more I want to try!

In addition to tea, I also enjoy books and music. If you would like, look for me on last.fm (user: giragirataiyou) or Goodreads (user: thexquietxlife). :)
