drank Parker's Blend by Cuppa Geek
2584 tasting notes

I am excited to announce that I have a new padawan! That is what my family calls it when I meet someone who wants to get into tea so I shower them with tea and info. My padawan is a co-worker of my daughter’s and I think he is about to start college. I haven’t met him in person but we have texted and I have sent tea via my daughter.

He went to a local tea shop and bought orange spice, lapsang, and forest berry teas. I sent an assortment from my stash and he liked them all, even Bai Mu Dan which I thought might be too subtle after the flavored teas he started with, and he really enjoyed Premium Jasmine Dragon Pearls from Teavivre. I also sent Paris and unsmoked lapsang.

Last night I ordered the sampler from Cuppageek for him. You get six teas for $5 and I chose my six favorites in hopes they would appeal to him, too. I can’t wait for them to get here!

With that on my mind, I chose Parker’s Blend for breakfast today. I had transferred it to a tin since I have purchased rather a bit of it, and it smelled sooo good today when I popped that double lid open. I know the description says there is a touch of cream flavor, but really it was SUCH a creamy and fruity aroma that hit me that I just had to go “mmmmmmmm” right then and there. I still don’t understand how Nichole makes tea that steeps three times but she does. I steeped one teaspoon thrice and put it all together for a good sized eighteen ounce pot.

Check out the May ParTea on Cuppageek! I ordered the first two fruity blends and am super excited for the caffeine free version of Pina Colada. I have never had a Pina Colada but it sounds delicious!

I have had a few padawans in my time. None that actually made it to tea jedi though.

Oooo thanks for the notice about the ParTea. I’ll have to put a little order together (:

My padawans have been dispersed in travel and then further distanced by order 66.

My gym trainer is my new one. Been giving him my jasmine greens and blacks that he’s loved. I’ve slowly introduced some of my other teas to my students through tea lessons to explore culturally diffusion.

Michelle and Daylon: Don’t you love it when someone really takes to tea? It is so exciting to walk through their discovery of all the wonder of the tea world.

AJRimmer: Glad to be of service! I am eager to try the new blends!

I love that you actively seek out converts, ashmanra. I also love your habitual tea parties. So lovely.

Evol Ving Ness: tea parties were put on hold for a whole year, but we are all vaccinated now and we started back! I have had tea outside with a neighbor or friend a few times before that, and I am so glad the weather here is mild enough to permit that most of the year!

I think I socialize with tea because…it is the only way I know how! I find it easier to say “Come for tea” than “Come over sometime” and my parents did not socialize so really tea was what got me started!

Wish you could come for tea sometime!

Bio

I am a music teacher, tutor, and former homeschool mom (25 years!) who started drinking loose leaf tea about twelve years ago! My daughters and I have tea every day, and we are frequently joined by my students or friends for “tea time.” Now my hubby joins us, too. His tastes have evolved from Tetley with milk and sugar to mostly unadorned greens and oolongs.

We have learned so much history, geography, and culture in this journey.

I am also reviewing for Sororitea Sisters now!

My avatar is a mole in a teacup! Long story…
