So glad you could stop by

Hello! Welcome to Geeky Tea Time! As you can probably guess, I love tea, baking, and have strong geeky tendencies. With a full-time job, no-so-fun commute, and the general hustle and bustle of busy life, I wanted to take some time to slow down and really focus on the things I like and care about….

Pika Paradise: Pikachu Outbreak 2019

Some time last year, I saw this: View this post on Instagram 横浜みなとみらいで開催中のピカチュウ大量発生中チュウより、 Pokemon Synchronicity。 このレベルのショーを無料で見せてくれるなんて横浜市も太っ腹。 観覧車のライトもポケモンバージョンでした。本日最終日です。 2018.08.14撮影 #横浜みなとみらい #みなとみらい #ピカチュウ大量発生チュウ #PokemonSynchronicity #japan #kanagawa #yokohama #minatomirai #PikachuOutbreak #NightShow #myyokohama #キタムラ写真投稿 #写真好きな人と繋がりたい #japan_of_insta #japan_night_view #loves_nippon #team_jp_ #amazingdestination #art_of_japan_ #special_spot_ #pt_life_ #eos #eos6dmarkii A post shared by @ emirisa2007 on Aug 15, 2018 at 1:08pm PDT Whatever…

Flower Power: Aoyama Flower Market Tea House in Akasaka

My adventures in Japan continue (well, the blog posts at least. Still in Ohio)!  While I had a great time at The Matcha Tokyo, another tea spot in Tokyo captured my heart and was an easy walk from where I was staying- Aoyama Flower Market Tea House. Aoyama Flower Markets can be found all over Japan,…

Pikachu Platter: The Pokémon Cafe in Tokyo

When was the last time you felt so happy you could cry? Most recently (and profoundly) for me, it was when I got to meet my hero. An international treasure beloved by adults and children alike, who has crossed language and cultural barriers as a universal symbol of adorableness and unbridled joy. Pikachu. Yellow. Friendly….

A Matcha Made in Heaven: The Matcha Tokyo

Konichiwa tea lovers! It’s been a while, but I’m back with some (hopefully) exciting posts. I actually just returned from a 2 week trip to Japan not too long ago and it was GLORIOUS. I geeked out, explored Japanese culture, and, for the first time in forever, actually felt relaxed. It was a great trip…

Spill the Tea: Constant Comment from Bigelow

Any RuPaul’s Drag Race fans in the house? If you’re familiar, solidarity. If not, the general premise is that a bunch of drag queens compete in a series of challenges to win a bunch of money and fame, all while being much better looking women than I am. I am ok with this, because when…

Sunrise, Sunset: Hot Cinnamon Sunset from Harney & Sons

For some, drinking tea is a calming, soothing experience best enjoyed while winding down and curling up for cozy time. For others, drinking tea feels like the zing of being brought back from the brink of death and being more alive than ever before. Hot Cinnamon Sunset from Harney & Sons exemplifies the latter. Cinnamon…

Be Kind and Rewind: Family Video and the Evolving Scene of Movie Watching

First, a video (appropriately): There might be only one Blockbuster left in the United States, but, surprisingly, video stores are still hanging on amidst the ominous presence of Netflix, Amazon Prime, and numerous other streaming services. The biggest contender: Family Video. Family Video is a chain primarily based in the midwest, and I have three…
