So glad I got 6oz of this tea, I could easily finish it and spread the love!! This is my warm up tea today, tea to drink before I crack into my Red Leaf Matcha order!

Coconut Cacao! mmm! Insanely creamy and so delicious lightly sweetened.

I was sipping this tea downstairs watching the morning rain (I miss rain! It’s rained like 3 times since I moved here and I’m used to non-stop rain for week + back in Vancouver) and the roommates show up and ask why I’m drinking their coffee – since this tea is so black it looks like coffee.

Regarding my roommates coffee. It’s DISGUSTING and I’ve never tried it because yeah.. they make it the night before. Fill up a french press with 1/2 to 2/3 full of cheap ground coffee. Top with water and let it sit on the counter overnight. Then they drink it in the morning before work or sometimes drink it later that evening after work. EWWWW! Never drinking that coffee!

I was raised on floral oolongs and green teas, mostly “beauty” teas. Early on as a kid, I can guzzle an entire pot of tea (or two) at a Chinese or Japanese restaurant.
These days I like adventurous and interesting tea blends. I’m fearless in trying new teas! I’m into oolong, pu’erh, white, green, black, guayusa, mate and herbals. I’m not into red rooibos but I keep buying it anyway.

The tea brand that got me started into loose leaf teas was DAVIDsTea. I used to live in Vancouver Canada and had access to their shop, however that is now limited since I moved to southern California.

However, the perks of living in the US is ultra cheap, fast shipping! Since then, my tea stash insanely expanded.

Other stuff I’m into that sneaks into my tea notes: Brazilian jiu-jitsu, metal music, drawing, painting, cooking, photography and nail polish.

BTW, my Steepster cupboard is not even close to accurate and I track my teas on a spreadsheet. Last update 573 Teas – August 2015.
