This one wasn’t on my list today, but it sat on the counter staring at me until I finally gave in and asked for 10g.

My fiance has been matching me for cups of tea today, so I get to hear his input on everything I’m trying as well. Lovely, lovely. He actually enjoys tea a lot but doesn’t drink it nearly as much as I do. A nice change of pace today.

It smells almost peppery? Is that right? Perhaps that’s the lemongrass. I don’t think I’m really enjoying this one too much. I have enough for another round so I’ll have to try it iced.

Bio

Lover of tea, animals, the ocean (http://eastcoastbest.tumblr.com/), travel, science, and all things summer.

That’s my mug! I may have a slight love of Star Trek.

I love black teas. I pretty well always drink my tea straight. I’m also fond of herbals, but they rarely make my permanent collection. I prefer my tea hot, but occasionally I’ll cold brew.

Oolongs I enjoy, but I’m not always in the mood for them. Greens and pu’erhs I’m working on, but they’re coming along at a snail’s pace. Whites have to be pretty amazing (see Butiki’s White Rhino). Rooibos/honeybush have to be well hidden for me to enjoy them. Mates and are not for me at all.

Likes:

Dislikes:
Any smokiness, bergamot, flowers (rose, jasmine, chamomile), hibiscus is hit and miss, to be continued…
