When preparing tea for the day today, I figured I’d give this another try. Unfortunately, I enjoyed it a little less this time than the first… The dry leaves smell pleasant and green. But the wet leaves were almost more like wet socks (not necessarily gym socks, but socks nonetheless). The first sip reminded me too much of the wet leaves. After that, it was a little nicer, but I still probably won’t be drinking this much. I think I’ll give it another go after a little while to see if my opinion of it changes.

I’m your standard nerdy girl in a lot of regards, from my taste in music, books, and movies to my penchant for getting completely wound up in various activities and hobbies. One of my hobbies that never seems to fade away is my joy in writing.

I’ve written a personal blog, a tea blog, and an adventure blog, all of which recently have been brought together to a single location – A Chomp at Life. The Fun and FlirTea section is dedicated to introducing tea to and enticing today’s younger, coffee-drinking generation. It’s a fun place to learn about tea and hopefully start meeting more tea-lovers as well!

More than almost anything else, I enjoy sharing the things I love and helping spread that joy. Now I’m doing this with tea, living life everyday, and adventures – and I couldn’t be more excited!
