It’s been a LONG while since the last time I was tagged to do a Tag blog. And, there is no rules saying that I can’t write a tag blog, if I’m not being tagged for it! So, a couple of weeks ago on YouTube, I saw this tag, and I thought to myself- someday I must do this tag, since the simplest reason is: I REALLY LOVE TEA, A LOT!
If you know me really well, you know that I love tea; I don’t just love tea, and I don’t just drink a LOT of tea every day, but I also collect tea, I also collect mugs, and other teaware as well. I’m also showcasing my current tea collection->image on the right. Looking at this collection, I didn’t think I have this many kinds of tea until I dig and lay them all out in an open space!
And, if you also happens to be a tea lover, I think you’ll be interested in reading this post! So let’s get into the Questions:
1). What is your favorite tea?
My all time favorite tea is a Japanese green tea called Genmaicha, it is green tea with roasted brown rice. My second favorite is London Fog, which is a Earl Grey Tea Latte.
2). What is the worst tea you’ve ever tried?
I don’t think I ever had a worst experience with tea. But, I will say, some pure teas (green tea or black tea) don’t taste good if you put too much in it, it will create a bitter taste, so I guess that itself is bad enough!
3). What is your favorite tea cup/mug? Show us!
Here, I have a picture of two of my favorite mugs, one says “Dalian,” on this mug, it is a Starbucks City Mug. This mug is very special to me, I got it during my summer trip to China, and Dalian is my hometown in China. And, the second mug says “My friend is Bold Blind and Beautiful.” I got this mug from a friend, and this mug is also very meaningful to me.
4). Are you drinking tea now? If so, what kind?
Yes! I am drinking tea from Davids Tea and it’s called Me to We tea. It’s Davids Tea’s collaboration with a very awsome organization called Me to We. This is a fruit blend caffeine free tea, and I love it!
5). What was your most recent tea purchase?
I recently purchased tea from Davids Tea, and I got two kinds of tea: Matcha “Matsu” which is a Matcha (powdered green tea); and, because it’s the Fall season, I got a Pumpkin Chai tea as well, everything is pumpkin related in the fall season!
6). Do you prefer lose-leaf or tea bags?
I like tea bags better, but some tea only come with lose-leaf, in that case, I use a tea filter to filter out my tea, because I really don’t like the idea of ‘eating’ my tea!
7). Do you prefer caffeinated or decaf?
I like decaf better, especially for black tea, which I sometimes try to avoid. Caffeine affects my sleep pattern, which is not really nice.
8). Do you add anything to your tea?
I usually don’t, especially, I drink a lot of fruit blend tea, it doesn’t need a lot of sweetener. But, if I’m having for instance, Earl Grey, then I’ll add milk/or cream and sugar!
9). Where is your favourite place to order a tea?
I don’t usually order tea outside very often. I prefer to go buy tea from a store that sells tea (like Davids Tea, or Teavana). But I guess, I like any place that can get me a London Fog, because that’s usually what I get if I get one from a coffee/tea shop.
10). Show us 3 teas we should try!
This is a really tough one, because I really have more tea that I want to recommend to you all. But, if only to pick 3, I would definitely recommend my favorites: Japanese Genmaicha (photo on the left side) is the first, Just Peachy (top right) from Davids Tea is the second, and, Peppermint(bottom right) would be the third!
So, this concludes this tag and the blog, I hope you enjoyed reading it!
