The other half of why I’ve not been around is because I have just been drinking the same old teas, well not really “old”. But I’ve been trying to sip down the ones I got last year-This one I went off and on with really liking. There was a few months there that it just tasted too woody, so I didn’t drink it much. But over the last month, having tried it again,it’s been a hit in my book! I’ve just been loving it-drinking it literally every day, sometimes a couple times within the day. Finished what was in my tin, then opened up my last bag of this delicious tea and put it in the tea.
I really do hope that they re-open. :( This tea is just so delicious.
I really was wondering if I was gonna have to sell it a few months ago since it tasted woody. But glad that I’ve caught up to that tea now since I’ve finished every little bit of tea that I had opened last year. So Hopefully I’ll have more time to finish off this bag.

Definitely have been a lot more depressed lately, with a lot more family issues going on, and just health issues getting worse, and having to deal with frustrating doctors that are either giving up on me or just refusing to help me because of my age. It’s all just frustrating and depressing, to be honest. I definitely don’t drink as much tea as I used to. And in the past tea drinking has proven to keep my spirits up more and just help me with the whole having a better perspective on things. I really need to get back into it more! I have so much to try, and I do want to try it, it’s just the actually doing it is what’s hard. Because I have to move around a lot, well “a lot” when you’re in a crap load of pain :/ So yeah…Anyway…
I’m trying to get back into drinking tea more-I really need it for my emotional/mental sanity!

Flavors: Maple, Maple Syrup, Sugar, Sweet

I’m not too sharp with intros, but I figured it is about time to give it a go.
I started out drinking oolong and green tea that my dad brought home from his China business trips.
Then I discovered Teavana, and fell in love with some of their teas. Eventually I stumbled across Steepster, and a whole ‘nother world opened up.
Have discovered so many different kinds of teas, and have been loving this journey! The tea world is insanely big and amazing! And I’ve met some of the kindest people here who have broadened my horizons in more ways I could have imagined! Happy to be here, and to be drinking so many amazing teas! :D

My rating system:
1-59: Really really not a fan. An awful cup of tea for me…Totally undrinkable.

60-69: Not horrible, but not something I’d ever drink again willingly.

70-79: Pretty good. Wouldn’t mind drinking ever so often. But not a keeper.

80-100: FREAKIN’ AMAZING. Always keeping on stock in my home!!

I like pretty much any kind of tea except green tea. Unless it’s genmaicha or strongly flavored, I don’t like it usually.

My Tea Goals:
To find the Best Caramel Tea
To find the Best Vanilla Tea
To find the Best floral Oolong
To find the Best Malty Assam Tea
To find the Best Maple/Syrup Tea

Notes I like: Fruit(primarily peach, melon/honeydew, Banana, Kiwi, but I’m open to other kinds), Malt, Desserts (Toffee, Cake, Cookie,etc), Vanilla, Caramel, Floral, Sweet potato, Pastry/Bread,Jasmine, Honey, Cocoa, Chocolate, Maple, Nutty, Coconut, Almond.

Notes I’m Picky with: Lemon, Chai, Roasted, Blueberries, Hibiscus, Smoke, Earthiness, Puerhs, White Teas, and Cinnamon

Notes I hate: Citrus/Orange (Everything that I hate in this life that I have to take for my health is orange flavored, and it just makes me gag…so please…just no), Watermelon, Raspberry, Wood, Apple, Bacon, Lavender, Most mints, Pepper, Spicy, Tart/sour.

Yes, I am a picky tea drinker, but I’ll usually try any straight black or oolong tea that I receive. I like most oolongs, and I’m still discovering straight blacks. They always seem to surprise me no matter what!

And Swaps! I’m always down for swapping. Everything in my cupboard is swap-able. So just hit me up and send a message and we can totally do that!

On an unrelated to tea note, my other interests are limited due to health issues. But when I can, I enjoy reading and writing. Watching Netflix and YouTube have also been fantastic when I feel awful (which is most of the time).
I love Rifftrax, Rooster Teeth, Dexter, Hannibal, BBC’s Robin Hood, Sherlock, Doctor Who, Psych, and Parks and Rec.
Love watching all sorts of movies too, but that would be too much to list. :P
I’m definitely more of an internet person and love talking to people on every website I’m on. So if you ever wanna chat, shoot me a message! ^^
