The name’s Holly. 27. Work for a small IT company. About to finish a Master’s degree this winter. ISFJ for what it’s worth. I play various instruments (mostly bass guitar right now), attempt to write songs that I’m too scared to play for anyone, and I’m currently taking voice lessons. I also enjoy starting various hobbies, wearing monochromes, writing, cooking, taking walks, and various and sundry other things…
I’ve been a tea drinker since spring of 2013. Tea is a source of happiness, positivity, curiosity, and relaxation (…and caffeine) for me.
I’ve been on and off this site over the years, and I even had a separate tea blog at one point. For now, I’m just working on getting back in the habit of enjoying tea regularly and to its fullest.
Love: Malty Chinese black teas, shu/ripe pu erhs, soft flowery teas (esp. jasmine teas)
Like: Japanese green teas, sheng/ripe pu erhs, white teas
Still trying to get into: Most oolongs, chai teas
Not crazy about: Roasty teas, fruity teas, rooibos, many (not all) herbal teas
80-89: Nice! This is good stuff.

50-59: Middling. Not really worth it.

0-24: Did you know you can use tea leaves as odor absorbent?
