drank Mao Feng Green Tea by Teapigs
718 tasting notes

Was cleaning out my cubby at work and found this stashed at the back! Def forgot that I brought some teabags with me to work. I also found a small bag od David’s Silk Dragon Jasmine in the bottom of my drawer hahaha

This tea tastes like a traditional straight green tea. Actually pretty good, it isn’t overwhelmingly grassy, but still has a great green tea flavor to it!

Sidenote: I cleaned out my desk, cubby, drawers, and past my keys to my backfill. I’ve been at the Grand for the past 3.5 years and now it’s off to go to the Boardwalk! I start at my new location tomorrow… excited, but nervous. I literally don’t know anyone over there so it’ll be nice to start fresh.

Had this the other day when my cousin came back to visit for Thanksgiving!

She had this when she first visited earlier in the month and loved it, it was her special request to have it again for Thanksgiving!

Such a nice tea, super creamy and smooth!

Definitely making a dent in my tea stash, which is always a good thing!

I only have enough of this tea to have one more cuppa. After that, I’ll only have maybe 5 more Jasmines in my collection hahaha. Gotta get me some more! This is def my fave type of tea to have before bed.

Actually pretty good for a Houjicha. It’s not too strong but still has the classic Houjicha roasted flavor.

Still not a fan of Houjicha in general, but I do appreciate this tea in general!

drank Medley Of Mint by Twinings

Sipdown!

idk why but Mint tea always smells like farts to me. I think I always associate Mint tea with being sick so I’m not the biggest fan of it.

Wanted to do an herbal tea tonight since I already had my Jasmine but I don’t actually own a lot of herbals. Had this in my random teabag stash so I figured I’d give it a go!

It tastes like your traditional mint tea. Nothing pretty special about it. Just… mint.

Went to the dentist this morning bc of my messed up gum and they said it was nothing to worry about… Legit I told them that I noticed it when I all of a suddenly started drinking tea again and they said that the tea had nothing to do with it!

Recently I’ve been craving Jasmine as I relax before going to bed. Luckily the caffeine in the tea doesn’t affect me all that much! This one has been my go-to tea since it’s not necessarily my favorite, but it’s still a cup that I enjoy!

Also not sure if I mentioned this in a previous note, but my boyfriend and his team started cleaning out someone’s desk (she left to go to a different location a couple months ago so they figured she probably forgot about all her stuff and they’d be safe cleaning out her desk). They found a tin of matcha, Teavana’s double-walled glass matcha bowl, and a matcha whisk. No one knew how to use it but Alex figured I did! So he took it home as a surprise gift to me hahaha. The matcha bowl itself, I could tell just by looking at it, does a terrible job of being a matcha bowl. The bottom comes to a somewhat point and it’s narrow. It does do a pretty good job of being an oversized teacup though!

Well, that’s a Teavana matcha bowl for you. muhaha.

As per usual, I started brewing this cup and then forgot about it because my sister called…. even though it steeped for probably over 10 minutes, it’s still delicious!

Nice and smooth. Once I get to a manageable tea amount, this would be something that I would love to purchase!

From the Marco Polo TTB ages ago.

Last time I drank Houjicha was maybe 5 years ago and I remember not liking it as much… yeah that didn’t change. It’s the roastiness that I don’t like?? It legit tastes like you’re eating a mouthful of tanbark, and trust me, I know how tanbark tastes like since once in elementary school I fell of a swing and landed on my face hahaha

Anyway, good tea, but not a fan. If you like a woodsy taste, then this would be your cuppa

Flavors: Bark, Wood

Preparation
170 °F / 76 °C 2 min, 30 sec 3 g 10 OZ / 295 ML

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
