A bad bout of hay fever since yesterday has kept my sinuses throbbing and taste buds non-functional. Still, I believe this tea seems healthy enough to at least give me the illusion of being good for me, even if I can’t really taste anything…

It’s kind of funny not being able to taste anything, actually, as that makes me focus more on the texture and other qualities of the drink. I get the little bit of astringency, and a nice mouth feel, and I can admire the beautiful green color of the liquor without being “distracted” by the flavor!

Bio

Grandma introduced me to tea as a kid (lipton with milk and sugar; a bit poured into the saucer to cool it down and then sipped from there), and I’ve never looked back. Still have a slight preference for teas that go well with milk (or even better, cream) and sugar, but since Grandma’s day I’ve branched out to appreciate green and white teas, rooibos and pu erh. Absolutely love Mariage Freres!
