My stomach was feeling a little unwell earlier, so I figured that I should skip the black tea I was craving and go for something a little lighter. So, I found this in my “drink these first” box. It smells a lot like the Tropical Getaway from Compass Teas I had earlier today. I don’t have a thermometer, unfortunately, so I have to guess at the water temperatures for anything less than boiling. I should probably pick one up soon. This tea keeps the delicious fruity smell during and after steeping. However, I’m guessing I didn’t get the temperature right, since I’m getting no fruitiness and instead a somewhat bitter green tea. There almost seems to be a soapy flavor. Definitely need to pick up a thermometer before I kill any more helpless teas.

I’ve lived in Hawaii, Mississippi, Colorado, Maryland, Texas, and California, and I’m currently in Oklahoma while the boyfriend gets his grad schooling on.

I’ve been into tea for about five years now and my favorite thing is that there is still so much to learn! I personally prefer black and oolong teas, though I love trying new teas whatever they may be.

I also knit quite a bit and sell things on my etsy when I’m not busy with school.

I really love swapping, so if anything in my cupboard catches your eye, please let me know!
