the best tea on the planet







OKAY TEA LESSON TIME. I worked at Teavana for a long time and these teas are called blooming teas! They’re basically white teas, and they come in this little ball. That ball can be rebrewed up to five times. FIVE. TIMES. And that one ball will fill that whole teapot. The three flavors we had each had a different flower in the middle, and really don’t take long to brew, just long enough for that ball to bloom, 2-4 minutes or so for the whole teapot. As a white tea, it’s high in antioxidants, and it’s really good for your immune system. It’s extremely good for detoxing as well, so if you want to detox for health reasons, or if you happen to have a drug test you’re unprepared for, drink these teas. And it’s extremely good for clearing up your skin! After a month of drinking a cup of this a day, your skin will be extremely healthy. It’s light in flavor, so for those of you who don’t like stronger teas, this is perfect.
Plus, it’s really cool to watch bloom.

and now, for tea news.

Yixing Clay
Yixing clay is a type of material used to create Zisha ware and teapots, among other utensils. Also called Purple Sand, it is a high iron material containing kaolin, quartz, and mica, and is found near the region of Yixing in the Jiangsu province of China.
What makes Yixing clay fascinating is not only it’s ability as a clay, but just how dated the product actually is. Some of its earliest uses were during the Song Dynasty (960-1279), and what prevents the pots from cracking or crumbling away is continued use. Yixing will also absorb small amounts of the tea brewed in it, eventually obtaining the flavour within its walls.
Because of this, it is usually within the best interest of the consumer to pick only one tea to brew in their Yixing pot. The most common type is Puerh, a fermented black tea, but oolongs are also popular. It is not recommended to brew a flavoured or herbal tea in Yixing.
Because of its absorbent properties, Yixing must never be washed with soap or detergents. It should be rinsed with water only, and left to air dry.

my favorite part of concerts is when the band plays a song everyone knows so everyone’s singing along all out of tune but then the singer stops singing and they point the mic at the crowd and u just hear everyone in the crowd singing the words to the music and u see the smiles on the band members’ faces bc they know people care about their music and everyone’s just so happy who cares about anything else

Since you said you haven't read the book, I'm curious whether you found the plot predictable? Like the twist at the end, or the identity of who built the maze. Thanks. :D

I couldn’t predict anything! It was very twisty and good!

Spoiler Free Maze Runner Pre-Screening

Last night me and a few friends got RSVP for Maze Runner and were able to attend.

It was amazing. While I’ve never read the books everything was perfectly explained so I didn’t have to. While I still want to read them the movie can certainly stand alone.

The graphics were astounding and the actors killed their roles.

Everyone should go see this movie opening week. We were told they want to film The Scorch Trials and if its anything like what I saw last night then its going to be perfect.

If you have questions or want clarification just send me an ask. I’ll answer privately.
