Sipdown.

I still don’t get hazelnut in this one. I get where “chocolate” is coming from, although it still tastes more like chocolate flavoring than anything to me. This is great for when you want a really rich, creamy tea. This one actually goes into my head a little. You know what I mean? Ever have certain flavors that seem to get you right in the front of your forehead between the eyes? Not in a “punch” kind of way, like it actually makes your head hurt just the slightest bit when you smell it it’s so sweet.

It was a good sample and exactly that. A sample.

Yep, almost no hazelnut for me.

Bio

The name’s Holly. 27. Work for a small IT company. About to finish a Master’s degree this winter. ISFJ for what it’s worth. I play various instruments (mostly bass guitar right now), attempt to write songs that I’m too scared to play for anyone, and I’m currently taking voice lessons. I also enjoy starting various hobbies, wearing monochromes, writing, cooking, taking walks, and various and sundry other things…

I’ve been a tea drinker since spring of 2013. Tea is a source of happiness, positivity, curiosity, and relaxation (…and caffeine) for me.

I’ve been on and off this site over the years, and I even had a separate tea blog at one point. For now, I’m just working on getting back in the habit of enjoying tea regularly and to its fullest.

Love: Malty Chinese black teas, shu/ripe pu erhs, soft flowery teas (esp. jasmine teas)

Like: Japanese green teas, sheng/ripe pu erhs, white teas

Still trying to get into: Most oolongs, chai teas

Not crazy about: Roasty teas, fruity teas, rooibos, many (not all) herbal teas
