I think I’m going to have to lay low on the tea drinking rn bc my teeth started hurting… I think the sudden change of basically exclusively drinking hot tea during the day shocked my body and now my teeth and gums are pretty sensitive to anything hot or super cold!

Oh well. Still planning on enjoying tea, even though it’s not as often as I would like!

This is basically my favorite jasmine ever! Super light and delicate, and I just love how it’s uniquely rolled! This one in my current collection is maybe a year or two old, but it still tastes delicious! Not quite as delicate as I remembered, but I know that’s coming from the age of it.

Sipdown!

A tea I got from the Marco Polo TTB years ago. It was basically vacuum sealed in the bag so the quality of the tea didn’t really diminish as the years went by…

Poured the tea straight into my glass teapot and when the leaves unfurled, it looked AMAZING! And it tastes pretty great too :) Definitely getting some grassy/vegetal notes from this tea.

Got it from the Marco Polo TTB aaaaages ago. For how long I’ve had this tea, it didn’t taste old so I am very very happy :)

drank Shaded Leaf by Mellow Monk

Another old tea, the color isn’t as green as I would have expected it to be and I know it’s because of the age of this. 100% regret the fact that I didn’t drink this when I got it!

Even though it’s old, it still tastes delicious. The flavors are a bit muted but I can tell that it’s there. Had it been a fresh batch of tea, I know it would have been delicious!

Legit all my tea is so old that I really should just toss the lot. I don’t have the heart to though..

If you look at my previous note, I said that the vanilla really comes through and I’d believe that note! This steeping the vanilla is long gone :(

Literally bought this tea just to have the glass teapot hahaha

The tea itself is okay, not a ton of taste to it. Boyfriend described the flowering tea as a “Squid”

Tea rating guide:
100-95: Best thing to ever touch my mouth and I want more. Restocking is a must
94-80: Love this tea. Restock if I can
79-70: Decent tea. Neither love nor hate.
69-60: I won’t be upset when it runs out. I’ll drink it but won’t restock.
59-30: I’ve done whatever I can to like this tea and I’ll finish the cup.
29-10: I’ve done whatever I can to like this tea. It may or may not have gone down the sink…
9-below: Let’s not even hide it. This definitely went down the drain.

I love tea.
I drink it.
I log it.
I have a good time.
Lather, rinse, repeat.

I first discovered my love for tea with jasmine teas because that’s all my mother would buy, so for the longest time, I thought that all teas were jasmine! And then in 4th grade, I watched the tea episode of Good Eats and that’s when the education started! I’d like to blame Alton Brown for starting this obsession because now I only like loose leaf tea.
It wasn’t until my second year of college that I actually expanded my tea taste buds. Special shout out to Cara McGee, Tea Queen for her Adagio Fandom blends. Because of Cara, I actually started drinking blacks, herbals and whites and pretty much everything else in between. I still have a special love for my jasmine though :)
I (try to) drink tea daily. Usually just straight up, no sugar or milk. This little obsession started young and just… kept going, I guess.

also I apologize in advance for lazy tasting notes and horrible grammar in everything I write. I was an avid fandom blogger on tumblr and tumblr talk can get in the way of everything kthxbai
