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….

Across the Pond: London Fog Tea Latte from Aldi

Who here loves Aldi? -raises hand- Truth be told, my family didn’t really shop at Aldi for our groceries. We’ve had one in my hometown for as long as I could remember, but we may have stopped in only once to see if they had Tamogotchis (they didn’t). I’m ashamed to admit it, my impression…

Ice Ice Baby: Iced Tea with AquaRosa from Kusmi Tea

According to people who are likely much smarter than me, drinking a hot drink on a hot day will actually be more effective in cooling your body down than drinking a cold drink. I’m not that dedicated to the cause. Gimme a cold drink on a hot day. In true Ohio fashion, we’ve been volleying…

Bubble Quaran-tea: DIY Bubble Tea at Home

Hello, Tea Friends. It’s been quite some time and, goodness knows, a lot has happened lately. I’m going on month 2 of working at home and am extremely thankful that my job and paycheck haven’t been hugely affected by the quarantine. I hope you all have been able to stay well. Undoubtedly, we’ve all had…

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…
