Another tea from Sil that I am grateful to try. Today it was my school tea and definitely a welcome bit of niceness amongst my boring day. It’s got great flavor, creamy coconut (not lotiony) and tart pineapple. It comes together quite nicely actually. I am getting hibiscus but it is helping round out the flavors/sell the “pineapple” note. Granted there is also the apple flavor that comes with most fruit teas but blend as a whole does a good job of incorporating it rather than fighting it. All in all, a great caffeine-free choice for summer iced/cold teas.

In other news, I am having a bit of a moral dilemma. Got one of my exams back today and realized my teacher miscounted and gave me 3 extra marks. I debated about saying something but in the end there were so many other people in line to complain about their marks that I decided not to wait around to have marks taken away. Bad call or is it just one of those things you let slip by since no harm done? (If it helps, the 3 marks are the difference between a 96% (A+/4.0) and a 87% (A/also a 4.0))

Super Starling!

I personally would let it slide if it’s the same GPA point. It’s not like you failed to show competence, or somehow accidentally swapped grades with someone who deserved it more.

Who cares, I wouldn’t bother, and if your prof is decent, I’m sure s/he would let you keep them just for being honest if you were to speak up.

My cupboard has grown exponentially since joining this site and I have a lot to share. Feel free to snoop through my cupboard and message me if anything interests you – I am always happy to swap!

For me, flavored teas are definitely my sweet spot. I will most often reach for black teas and rooibos or honeybush blends but I do keep some flavored whites and greens around for when the mood strikes. I have a few herbals/tisanes but most of the time I find myself disappointed by them as they often smell deliciously sweet and then end up tasting tart/sour. I have a little bit of an aversion to pu’erh and oolong teas. I am also wary of florals, earl greys, and chai teas. I do not like overpowering citrus flavors nor do I usually like hibiscus, licorice or chamomile. I love dessert teas – caramel, vanilla, toffee, cookie, cream, and other sweet flavors make me smile. Fruits like strawberry, peach, mango, and pineapples will often catch my attention as well.

I have also realized that although I really enjoy adding frothed milk to some of my teas, if I do not like the tea with zero additives (just in plain water without milk or sugar), I probably won’t drink it. The one exception is flavored matchas which I will happily drink in cold milk if I do not like it mixed with hot water. My theory is if the tea can’t stand on its own then it is not for me and I will more than likely try to swap it out for something else.
