Wowza. It’s been a hot minute since I have last logged a tea! Too much has happened any life got in the way. Long story short, I dragged myself out of a bout of depression and just feeling so ‘stuck in the mud’ with my old managing job at a shitty breakfast joint to chase tea! Well, I suppose the tea chased me. I discovered over Instagram that Tealet was looking for a tea-savvy person, I applied (thinking it was in vain) got a Skype interview, got the job, and flew out to Vegas to learn how to sling tea, all within the course of two weeks. Toss a trip to Lake Tahoe, tea festivals, tea business meetings, and my Brother’s wedding to the mix and things got a little out of hand. I may still be unsure of where I will be from week to week, but it has been the weirdest, coolest, eye-opening experience of my short life.
Sorry for the rambles! /endrant. On to the tea! I am trying to sip down all my Butiki and test out new teas for the website. My tastebuds (and bladder, for that matter) are just going, ‘who do you think you are?’
This is much stronger on the grapefruit-y citrus than I had expected. It’s very zingy, I may have to cold-brew this to see how the tanginess applies to the tea when it is iced. Not very bergamotty (which is a word I just made up, okay?) but now that I think of it, was it supposed to be?
Bummed that I waited too long to try this. Although, the robust black tea is holding up just fine. I still have about 10g left. Better drink up!
