Backlog: I was going through some of the samples that Whiteantlers gave me a few years ago, and I took a break from the usual oolong for an actual green tea. I was kinda surprised this tea was flavored because it just smelled like a really fresh green sencha when I opened the bag.

I used my whisk and bowl, and when I tried the tea-I was caught off guard by the citrus sweetness. It reminded me of emergency a little bit, but it was sweeter and lighter. It was a hot summer day, and the orange was welcomed. It reminded me of some Japanese Sherbert Ice Cream I used to have in Hawaii, and there was a little bit of a sugar crystal texture in the lightly grassy green matcha. I was very happy with it and finished it quick.

Flavors: Citrus, Creamy, Grass, Orange, Sugar

Just heard from White Antlers. She had delta variant Covid that broke through her vaccine protection and was in hospital. Still recovering and weak so staying with a friend but getting better, the summer heat making it harder.

oh no! One of the unlucky ones who had to go to the hospital with the vaccine, but if White Antlers didn’t have that vaccine… wishing you speedy health, White Antlers.

Me:

I am an MSU graduate, and current alternative ed. high school social studies and history teacher. I formerly minored in anthropology, and I love Egyptian and classical history. I love to read, write, draw, paint, sculpt, fence(with a sword), practice calisthenics on rings, lift weights, workout, relax, and drink a cuppa tea…or twenty.

I’ve been drinking green and black teas ever since I was little living in Hawaii. Eastern Asian influence was prominent with my friends and where I grew up, so I’ve been exposed to some tea culture at a young age. I’ve come a long way since I began on steepster and now drink most teas gong fu, especially oolong. Any tea that is naturally creamy, fruity, or sweet without a lot of added flavoring ranks as a must have for me. I also love black teas and dark oolongs with the elusive “cocoa” note. My favorites are lighter Earl Greys, some white teas like What-Cha’s Kenyan offerings, most Hong-Cha’s, darker Darjeelings, almost anything from Nepal, Green Shan Lin Xi’s, and Greener Dong Dings. I’m in the process of trying Alishan’s. I also tend to really enjoy Yunnan Black or Red teas and white teas. I’m pickier with other teas like chamomile, green teas, and Masalas among several.

I used to give ratings, but now I only rate teas that have a strong impression on me. If I really like it, I’ll write it down.

I’ll enjoy a tea almost no matter what, even if the purpose is more medicinal, for it is my truest vice and addiction.
