First, I really enjoy the leaning tower of tea photo of this one. I’m not sure I’ve ever had a straight green, and I go through phases with my (flavoured) green teas. I love, love Bangkok, but even that is somewhat phased in and out.

This one is somewhat vegetal, but also creamy with a sweetness coming through at the end of the sip. I’m actually enjoying this one while studying because it just seems more calming than the extreme amount of straight black teas I’ve been enjoying as of late.

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.

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