Another oldie but goodie, a good standard to help me wake up without the use of coffee, which does my tummy no favors. But this puerh is juicy and the perfect morning pick me up.

It’s on my list to try. I need more pu’erh in my life.

Coffee is generally no friend of mine either.(Once in a while I can get away with an iced mocha caramel.)

I live! Fall is on the way and it always gets me back into tea, I can’t help it. In the past year I’ve been on a cruise, I moved in with the in-laws for a month and a half, my wife lost her job and found a new, better job within a week, and I was officially diagnosed with fibromyalgia. Woo. Busy year, but overall a good one!

Reached for this tried and true favorite due to wanting an oolong I can steep over and over and over and not get tired of. I made it in a steeper and put it in my new raccoon lock top mug, the first time with just a single ice cube to cool it enough to drink and the second time with the mug full of ice so I could enjoy a refreshing drink on this warm Toronto afternoon. As always, a+. Will always be one of my favorites.

Side note, I’m dying to see the back of one of the raccoon nordic mugs, all I can find are pictures of the raccoon on front with his little mug of tea. Does anyone out there have one they can snap a quick picture of for me? I’m trying to convince myself I don’t need it since I got the matching lock top mug, buuuuuuuut…yeah. Tempted.

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 2 min, 0 sec 2 tsp 16 OZ / 473 ML

The raccoon mug tempts me too. I want it for at work ;)

It’s just so cute and I’m still kicking myself for not getting the multicolored raccoon mug from 2014!

Pictures of top, and both sides on Aedon2hg instagram. Took pics while at the store

YOU ARE MY HERO THANK YOU

Daddyselephant

I only see the back side, but that’s enough for me to consider ordering one, THANK YOU <3

I posted all three pics at once so you should be able to slide from one to the next on instagram in the same post.

Finished off my tin and broke into a new package left from last year because the day I am without this tea is a day I don’t want to ever face. Holiday season is nearly here, y’all!

Managed to get half a cup of this before demon child, aka JiJi, knocked it over XD. Ah well, that’s what the second steep is for, right?

drank Read My Lips by DAVIDsTEA

This is a sipdown simply because we have 500 grams of it and need to drink that down before it goes off. My life, it is a hard one XD. This is, as always, delicious. It’s one of a few chocolate teas I genuinely enjoy.

drank Super Charge by DAVIDsTEA

So I’ve gone through nearly 100g of this tea and today I had my first bad cup. To be fair, it was also my first time trying it hot and I do sweeten with stevia, so that may have figured in here, so I’m not adjusting my rating at all. But it was painfully artificial and not good at all.

Michelle

I have 23g I want to get rid of, if you’d like it.

Daddyselephant

Thank you, but I’ve got another 200 grams waiting for me <3

Bio

Formerly aisling of tea, now you can call me ele .

“You can forgive a murder, but never a mistake while preparing tea.” Chinese proverb

Labels? Here you go: Femme, Wife, Lesbian, Homemaker, Happy. Don’t forget tea fanatic!

New label as of May, 2015: Diabetic. I’m using tea to satisfy my sweet tooth cravings and keep me hydrated without hurting my system or messing with my blood sugar.

Ah, tea. My love for you is ever changing. At my last update, I was all about the rooibos and now I hardly drink it. I only occasionally had an oolong and now I have one just about every day. I’ve learned the art of resteeping and coldbrewing and kombucha. I have a lovely little tea pet named…well, I haven’t decided on a name for him yet. I also have five! live pets, a tabby cat named Rosabella Francis (Bella for short), a ginger cat named Orange Julius Pekoe (Pekoe), a white and grey cat named Earl Jean Grey (Earlie), a tuxedo cat (and the only boy in the house) Prince Erik Darien Darjeeling (JiJi) and a red foot tortoise named Da Hong Pao (Pao). So if you see me referring to my girls, I don’t have kids, just animals.

As for tea, I love oolongs, herbals, and black tea. Since I am no longer working, I no longer feel the constant need for a mate energy boost, though I do still reach for it from time to time. I also drink less matcha, though I do throw a spoonful or two in when I’m making smoothies. Most of my tea I drink coldbrewed, and since I discovered coldbrewed rooibos was giving me headaches, I’m drinking less and less of it. Straight pu-erh is not a thing I enjoy, but there are a few flavored blends I like. Greens are still too finicky for me to bother with hot, but they make great cold brews.

I am by no means a tea purist. I greatly enjoy flavored teas and I put stevia in all of my teas. It’s just how I do.

I think I’m going to name my tea pet Mr. Turtle. Even though he’s a tortoise.
