Another sample from Kittenna I am finally getting to! Really, it’s shameful how behind I am. I made this one hot, and used the entire sample since I know DT blends can be a little weak. But wow, was it flavorful! Not at all the flavors I was expecting, but tasty.

I got a hint of sweet strawberry, but mostly what I presume was the bamboo. Earthy, rich, and almost… caramel-y? It certainly reminded me of a dessert! I got a little bit of a tingle from the peppercorns, but it reminded me more of eucalyptus than anything spicy. It was a good tea, but very unusual—I’m not sure how I feel about it yet.

Bio

Tea has always been a passion of mine, though I got away from it during college. A lack of cupboard space and a constant influx of people into my suite made me pretty much abandon my teas at home. But now that I’m done with school, it’s definitely come back with a vengeance—to the point where I’ve purchased about 65 different kinds in the past 3 months!

I like most kinds of teas—yes, even peach, which I used to think I disliked!. Oolongs are definitely my favorite, and I’m an avid fan of earl grey, floral teas, and chai blends along with anything melon. The only kind of teas on my “no” list are rooibos blends (which gives me headaches) and banana flavored ones since bananas are public enemy #1 in my mind.

The best thing about tea for me is how you can be passionate about it and still have it integrate into all of your other hobbies. I like a lot of things: writing, video games, books, sewing, figure collecting, astronomy… it’s a long list. But whatever I’m doing, I can have a cup of tea in hand!
