Whee! SO glad to have this back in my cupboard, and a nice tin of it too! … Although I did spill a handful of it when I first popped the lid open. I was not pleased. At least I got to try out my new mini vacuum I got for Christmas. :P

They keep saying “fruit with a hint of bergamot” when they talk about this tea, and I see where they’re getting “fruit” but that’s not how it strikes me. But I don’t know how to describe it!!!!

Magic. It’s the taste of magic.

I consider this one an Earl Grey. There’s definitely something other than bergamot though. :)

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
