I love tea, it shapes my life in so many ways. Here you will find my reviews of teas that I have been fortunate to try, be it samples sent by friendly tea companies, gifts, or purchased by me. My goal is to give an honest review of the tea that I am drinking, and hopefully help you find a new favorite tea! I like to experiment with different brewing methods for different teas, Western Brewing, Gongfu, Iced Tea, and so on. I use a myriad of various tea tools because having a collection of tea tools is awesome. Just keep in mind, taste is subjective! A favorite quote 'Give ten tea tasters the same tea and they will taste eleven different things' just goes to show that there is no right or wrong way to taste a tea. I also review tea themed things like books, tea gear, tea shops, and occasional tea food.
I am a total geek. I Role Play, hoard dice, play board games and wargames, read fantasy and sci-fi, obsess over Minecraft, and like getting into long winded rants about Superheroes. This will quite frequently show up in the blog as constant pop-culture and geek references, the occasional rambling post about a new Minecraft texture pack on the Xbox, or if I get really adventurous an occasional book review. I also fall nicely into the other spectrum of geekery: obsessing over science, nature, and an obsession with collecting knowledge.
I am a very arts and crafts oriented person, I will dabble in pretty much any art I can get my hands into, but mostly I focus on Miniature Painting, Origami, Nature Photography, and the occasional Traditional art. The miniature painting also falls into the geek category since I am painting my various armies and gaming characters!
So that is my blog in a nutshell! I hope you enjoy and find a new favorite tea, geek out, or find crafty inspiration! You might notice I do not run ads on my blog, I could be using them to drive in a little revenue to support my sickly unemployed self, but I find them distracting and don't want to push them on people. But if you do feel so inclined to support the blog and the blogger who rambles, there is a donation button.
