I let my cupboard get out of control. It’s great to have a lot of tea, but it isn’t great to have large amounts of really good tea that you can not ossicle drink while it is at its best.

In spite of this one being past its prime, it had good flavor and multiple steeps with each being enjoyable. It is a little bit roasty rather than highly floral and holds up well to sweet snacks. It had great body and showed it’s quality even…get this…three years past it’s recommended ‘use by’ date.

This is the end of this bag, and once I have emptied the cupboard of some of its oldest residents, I will start on the newer ones and tame this monster. I will be buying my teas in smaller amounts in future so that they can be enjoyed at their prime.

Three years—wow! This one sounds delicious.

Totally get that out of control cupboard feeling. No self-flagellation though as that’s not good for us either.

This year I am making an effort to learn a bit more about balance. And hurray for delicious tea to have along that journey!

Balance – yes! I enjoy my tea and I have something I love and think that I must have lots on hand and I don’t want to have to reorder and pay shipping again and if there is a coupon right now…so much the better! I even have my list of top ten pretty well secured and if I added ten or even twenty more just for fun teas, that would be more than enough.

Ah yes, the elusive cupboard of thirty. Striving, striving.

I’m the same way. If I’m going to pay shipping, then I am going to make that extra fee well worth it. And I want a good variety. And that’s how I get overwhelmed with a crazy cupboard.

Bio

I am a music teacher, tutor, and former homeschool mom (25 years!) who started drinking loose leaf tea about nine years ago! My daughters and I have tea every day, and we are frequently joined by my students or friends for “tea time.” Now my hubby joins us, too. His tastes have evolved from Tetley with milk and sugar to mostly unadorned greens and oolongs.

We have learned so much history, geography, and culture in this journey.

I am also reviewing for Sororitea Sisters now!

My avatar is a mole in a teacup! Long story…
