Occupation: Some Retail – Primarily a Stay-At-Home Mom.

Do you drink tea at work?: At work I drink Adagio’s RTD Green Tea – Anteadote.
Interests: First, I am an absolute addict of all things tea. I love the chance at trying new teas and coveting old favorites. The infinite possibilities of flavor excites me and the fact that I will never be bored amazes me. I also enjoy scrapbooking and cardmaking, but I must say I am a bit of sci-fi and computer geek. That includes, all Star Trek movies and shows, Star Wars, Stargate, and well anything “Star” I suppose. I do like my Family Guy, Simpsons, Futurama, King of The Hill, and American Dad. I don’t think it gets any more geeky than that. The best part is that tea works well with any thing I do or watch be it formal or informal. A friend that is always with me and works to fit any of my infinite moods.
Favorite Tea Variety: Not sure if I have a favorite but I am always itching for a delicious oolong.
Favorite tea: I have several… Black – Banaspity Bliss/ LeafSpa Tea, Black Flavored – Sweet Velvet Fog a Signature Blend I created on Adagio, Oolong – Milk Oolong/ThePuriTea, Pouchong – Coconut Pouchong/Golden Moon Tea, Green – Gyokuro/TeaGschwendner, Green Flavored – Green Coconut/TeaGschwendner, Honeybush – Lemon Drop Cooler/52Teas, I know that is a lot but I just don’t have an absolute favorite not to mention it can still change.
