I have had this sitting in my swap-in box for months. I’m still not so sure of my tea tastes are experienced enough to taste what others taste, but alas, I shall try it today. Also, I feel terrible, in that I can’t remember who sent this to me. I know it was either Kittena or Cavovorax, however I looked through my inbox to determine and of course I had deleted the message to keep myself organized. So silly of me. I apologize profusely for that.

I shall update as I sip away here. I’m also researching methyl hydroxybenzoate. Joy.

The initial sip is very smooth. I believe I’m getting some barely in the background there, which is lovely. As it cools and I get further into my cup I’m getting that hint of dark chocolate almost.

I’m drinking this so fast – it’s just so delicious! Thank goodness I can expect so many resteeps.

Bio

Lover of tea, animals, the ocean (http://eastcoastbest.tumblr.com/), science, travel, 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 generally in the mood for them. I only truly enjoy subtly fruity flavoured greens. Whites have to be pretty amazing (see Butiki’s White Rhino).

Pu’erhs I’m working on at a snail’s pace, but so far I’m not loving them. 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 dark chocolate flavour), rhubarb.

Dislikes:
Any smokiness, bergamot, flowers (rose, jasmine, chamomile), hibiscus is hit and miss.
