On tea.

Some silly tea theories I have:

Earl Grey should be tasted pure, no milk, no lemon, not even sugar if you can stand it. It's that good.

English Breakfast is fine with milk.

I don't know why but I find some green teas have a certain "fishy" smell that still strikes me as odd, and some others I'm pretty sure are Mate instead of real green tea.

Lapsang Souchong... DAMN, that shit is strong! I never thought tea could be THAT smoky.

I'm still addicted to the powdered iced tea nestle sells here in my country, I swear it tastes different than other iced teas on the market, and I've drank iced tea everywhere I go just to prove that theory. They all taste differently in fact. Funny.

Meanwhile, I'm back home, and I'm finding it hard to get back to blogging... I wonder why.


  1. I am screaming, screaming, screaming, very loud, loud, loud right now. OKAERIIII!! AITAIIII YO! BOGOSHIPPUH!!!!!! *cries*

    How was the trip? Don't ever go away that long again without sending me a postcard.

  2. As for your tea theory.

    I drink Earl Grey almost nightly now that my friend in the UK sent me a package of it. I need the sugar. And honey.

    Green tea is disgusting.

    English Breakfast has no taste at all. But I only had it once, earlier this week.

    Black Spice is awesome, but it needs sugar as well.

  3. LOL! Thank you!!!!!!!!!! I missed you too girl!!!!!!!!!!! *hugs*
    The trip was fine, we had a lot to do, thankfully our house was in great conditions (earthquake-wise), I took it slow. The family was as good as they could get. I went online once to check my mail, which I was feeling pretty good about XD but I think I'm gonna get into it again... XD XD XD.
    There's tons to say about the trip, but maybe I'll e-mail you instead haha (don't want to blab about it for the world to see).

    Anyway, Earl grey with honey... sure, but I'd say it depends on the honey, I drank it with Ulmo honey in chile, it was goooooooood.

  4. Nestle has the best instant tea ever. I use to stick my hand in the can and just eat the sugar. It was that good.

    Emails are lovely.

    Yes, you'll probably get back into it. My resolution was to cut back on technology this year. Our worlds revolve around it so much that we lose face to face contact with people. Terrible. But it's not that easy because everything is online. One of my classes next semester is an online class. Teachers are always assigning work online. Then there are books to download and read, and novels to write. So there goes my resolution.

  5. Oh yeah, what e-reader did you get? Nook? Kindle? Sony? How do you like it? I want a kindle, but I tell myself that hand back books are better. Except my book shelf is completely full. I guess that's a good sign since I bought the book shelf less than a year ago.

  6. Lapsang Souchong is good to scare roaches from stinks! it also smells a little like we're having a BBq or smoked steaks.

    melikes black tea, maybe with an orange rind and some sugar.
    rose tea, i like the smell of it, but it's too girlie for me. same with lychee tea.
