drank Random Steepings by Various Artists
1497 tasting notes

I haven’t a clue what I’m drinking.

Teaja, for whatever reason, only lists a handful of teas that they sell on their website. There’s a good 20+ more in-store, including their “award winners”. Coolio. Not sure how to buy, or even review the tea though, if I don’t know what it is or how to reference it.

So, this is a black tea… it won an award at the tea championships this year… it’s quite floral yet really robust… and super expensive. I, however, just grabbed a cup for $4.

I won’t bore you all with the conversation we had about their pricing; I’ve ranted about it elsewhere ad nauseum. It, literally, brought me to tears… but then again, I’m really struggling today, so take that with a grain of salt.

Bio

A few years ago, the obsession with tea started. The cupboard got bigger and bigger, more swaps occurred, group buys, secret rendezvous with local teapassionistas… and that’s how you end up with 500+ different kinds of tea in your home. At one time.

Almost all of the tea was given away, sold, or otherwise shared. A few relics still remain. I now travel full time with only two carryon bags to my name. One quarter of those bags are tea.

It’s still a challenge to avoid the chipmunk-like hoarding of The Teas, yet, the lightness of being from having so little compels me more.

If I have enough, I’m happy to share. If I’m in your area, I’d love to swap, meet for tea, and explore together.

As for the day-to-day stuff, I’m focused almost entirely on Love, (yes, with a capital L), Spirit/Self, transformation, travel and my writing and speaking work.

What kinds of teas do I normally like?

YES: flavored teas, fruity, dessert, chai, and spicy (REALLY spicy).

A FONDNESS FOR: all white teas, malty black teas, any herbal or medicinal teas, strange/weird teas you can only get in one place.

ALLERGIC TO: strawberries, lavender

DISLIKES: any added sugars, grains, lapsang souchong, and overly floral teas – I might enjoy a Jasmine Green every once in a while, but unless it’s a creamy floral tea (think roses in a chai, or the smoothness of a floral note in a French tea), I’ll likely pass. Earl Greys are a hit or miss with me; heavy on the cream or fruit notes and I might like it, heavy on the blergamot and I definitely won’t.
