I’m having an awful day, mood-wise. Slept badly, had some pretty brutal nightmares, spent the better part of the morning feeling like a zombie. I needed a pick me up, but didn’t feel like something fruity or sweet, which meant I didn’t reach for my usual Bear Trap or Ceylon Star. Something made me pull down my tin of Butterfly Jasmine and the smell hit me immediately after opening the tin and I knew that was what I wanted.

Lightly yet boldly Jasminey, I get all the wonderful jasmine goodness without feeling like i’m drinking soap or perfume. The green tea itself is slightly sweet, which I think really accentuates the bright crispness of the jasmine.

I’m contemplating making matcha in some steeped butterfly jasmine when I finish this cup.

Part of the Heffalumps and Woozles brigade!
I’m a tea addict. Oolong, Pu’ehr, and Lapsang Souchong are my favourites. I share tea with my pony, Java (Competes under the name “Bear With Me”). I’m pretty sure I’m the only person ever to buy matcha JUST for their horse, haha!

I’m on the hunt for the PERFECT peach tea. Something juicy that screams “I am PEACH!” when you take a sip. Ideally a Green, White, Oolong, or Yellow base (I find peach black teas to be too much tannin not enough peachy goodness). Suggestions are appreciated!

Bear with me (haha) while I update my cupboard. I recently did a huge reorganization and my cupboard is no longer accurate.
