Theme of the teatime: make the best of what’s available.

Two full packages of this to burn through, one from my aunt and the other from my work father. It makes a good cold brew 3 bags to a pint overnight. Tangy rosehips with mellow interjections of floral, woody cinnamon, perhaps earthy herbaceousness from the passionflower. Nothing more.

Speaking of work father, next weekend I will be packing up my belongings to live with him and his wife for an indefinite period of time so my housemate can return home. I’ve house/dog-sat for them many times, gone over for dinner and work parties but this will be, um, new, living with them.

I miss things. Such a mood right now. RHCP, Venice Queen.

Theme of the meantime: make the best of what’s available.

Flavors: Cinnamon, Floral, Herbaceous, Rosehips, Tangy, Tart, Wood

Thanks, Nattie. I’m sure it’ll be fine. We’re all easy-going. And they have a pool.

mrmopar, same town, few miles down the road ;)

ashmanra, thanks. It’ll honestly be a relief to be living with humans again. Though they seem to not take exposure to covid19 as seriously as I do.

gmathis, thank you, too.

I’m experiencing a lot of glitches on steepster lately, like missing comments.

Always open to gifting or swapping teas. I do send international when feasible. Please follow and send a message if you see a tea in my notes or cupboard that piques your interest.

Tea became a hobby and my daily drink of choice some time late in the last decade. My introduction to loose leaf came in the form of dumpster-dived Wuyi oolong packets that somebody left upon moving out of an apartment building. From there, my palate expanded to teas from across China and the world. I used to focus more on taste and still harbor the habit, but after trying sheng puer, I tend to focus more on how a tea feels in my body. Does it complement my constitution? Does it change my mood or does it enhance my current mindstate? Flavored teas are not a favorite but I do drink them intermittently.

In terms of who I am, you could consider me a jill of all trades. Specialty is not my strength, as can be seen in the spread of my tea notes. I might have attention issues. One thing I will always love is riding a bicycle.
