Well, my quest today has been to tick off as many straight blacks as I can. Third one of the day. Hopefully I can fit in 2 more (I do have a late night of studying ahead). I chose this one because I wanted to determine if it was the Darjeeling in David’s Organic Breakfast that I wasn’t liking.

It smells great – like a black tea haha.

Oh my. That flavour is very distinct. And unfortunately I don’t think it’s for me. Though I’m also not sure if that’s what was bothering me in David’s Organic Breakfast. Hmm. I’ll have to ponder on that as I finish this cup.

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:
Coconut, creaminess, yogurt, toffee, cacao (true chocolate flavour), rhubarb, to be continued…

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