drank Irish Cream Matcha by Red Leaf Tea
1474 tasting notes

Note to self: try this with a black base, and robust flavoring. Right now, at delicate flavoring and the green base, I’m just missing out on anything Irish Cream-ish. It’s still yummy and creamy, however I want some of the ole Irish in me. ;)

In unrelated news, my son got another notice home saying there’s a lice infestation at his school. Sigh. For whatever reason, the four times this has happened in the past two years, I’m the only one that gets it. For those (like me) trying to avoid the harshest of chemicals in those lice treatments – use Listerine. Dump half a bottle over your head (I use a lot, because I have very long, thick hair), leave it in for an hour, and then wash your hair normally. It works like a charm, although frankly I do feel slightly ill after — I’m told because the alcohol in the Listerine gets absorbed by your skin. Also, this is a much cheaper option… $2 vs $37.

Now on to our regularly scheduled programming…

Bio

A few years ago, the obsession with tea started. The cupboard got bigger and bigger, more swaps occurred, group buys, secret rendezvous with local teapassionistas… and that’s how you end up with 500+ different kinds of tea in your home. At one time.

Almost all of the tea was given away, sold, or otherwise shared. A few relics still remain. I now travel full time with only two carryon bags to my name. One quarter of those bags are tea.

It’s still a challenge to avoid the chipmunk-like hoarding of The Teas, yet, the lightness of being from having so little compels me more.

If I have enough, I’m happy to share. If I’m in your area, I’d love to swap, meet for tea, and explore together.

As for the day-to-day stuff, I’m focused almost entirely on Love, (yes, with a capital L), Spirit/Self, transformation, travel and my writing and speaking work.

What kinds of teas do I normally like?

YES: flavored teas, fruity, dessert, chai, and spicy (REALLY spicy).

A FONDNESS FOR: all white teas, malty black teas, any herbal or medicinal teas, strange/weird teas you can only get in one place.

ALLERGIC TO: strawberries, lavender

DISLIKES: any added sugars, grains, lapsang souchong, and overly floral teas – I might enjoy a Jasmine Green every once in a while, but unless it’s a creamy floral tea (think roses in a chai, or the smoothness of a floral note in a French tea), I’ll likely pass. Earl Greys are a hit or miss with me; heavy on the cream or fruit notes and I might like it, heavy on the blergamot and I definitely won’t.
