Steepster Select – August 2011 – Summer Lovin’ (2 of 3)

28 Sep

This is nice. Amidst all of the busy busy busy everything, I am just sitting here, doing nothing, and having a cup of tea. Perfect tea moment. I should be doing other things. Lots of other things. But I’m not. This isn’t the first time I’ve had this tea and originally I had a different write up for it. Something far more chaotic as chaotic was the flavor of the day when I originally started the entry.* This moment is far more deserving of a blog spot though, as these moments are by far rarer in my schedule as of late. I’m not even going to ruin it with sarcasm or cynicism right now. *gasp* It’s a beautiful, early fall day outside and I’m going to enjoy the rest of my delicious cup before I have to go beat on people with sticks at martial arts.

Steepster Select – August 2011 – Summer Lovin’

23 Sep

Fall is finally here, for better or worse. Sucks that we only had about one month of summer in Portland. On the other hand, it does mean that I’m in the mood for tea again. Not that I don’t drink tea when it’s 90+ degrees outside. I just don’t drink it for very long or necessarily feel like going through the process of reviewing a tea. My summer tea drinking is more on a drink and run schedule. Too nice and warm outside to be sitting in a dark, air conditioned house in front of a screen. We have enough dark and dismal months here in Oregon. Ew. Time to dig into the first Steepster Select box!

I jumped on this pretty quickly. Three mystery teas every month for $19? Okay! In retrospect, it’s not the soundest tea purchase. Could potentially be three teas that I hate. Why do I always jump on promotions like this? At least I didn’t buy three pints of oysters. No one needs that many oysters. Way to go, Henry.
