Oh My Darjeeling

I am unkempt hair and peanut butter jeans. Crayon scribbles on the walls and desk and couch. Teetering piles of work and dishes that still need to be put away. Oversteeped breakfast blends tamed with honey and milk are much better suited for me.… Continue Reading “Oh My Darjeeling”

Alone Time and Yan Shan Mu Dan

Alone time is fleeting these days. I have been trying to find the time to write about a tea I tasted last Sunday morning, and I finally found it on a Thursday night after everyone else went to bed. I penned this post by… Continue Reading “Alone Time and Yan Shan Mu Dan”

I Failed Adagio’s communiTEA

While re-organizing my tea cabinet last week, I discovered a bag of communiTEA teas from Adagio Teas. It was dated the week of March 8th through March 14th, and each single-serving packet within was still sealed shut. I remembered I kept putting it aside… Continue Reading “I Failed Adagio’s communiTEA”

Five December Favorites

I know we are three days into the New Year already, but you know how it is with these wrap-up posts… I like to take a minute (or more realistically an hour that gets edited down to about 12 minutes) and reflect on the… Continue Reading “Five December Favorites”

By Golly, I Have Over 200 Types of Tea!

One of the very first YouTube videos I created was a declaration of my self-imposed Tea Buying Ban. It’s actually a painfully awkward and un-charismatic video, but the stop-motion display of my tea collection at the time was kind of fun. I ended up… Continue Reading “By Golly, I Have Over 200 Types of Tea!”

S’mores Chai from DAVIDsTEA

Origin: Not ListedElevation: Not ListedHarvest: Not ListedPurchase from DAVIDsTEA I admit I’ve never gone camping. I’m afraid of the dark. Of being gobbled up by hungry bears.
