This is such a great tea to have around. I really don’t find that caffeine actually affects me in that it keeps me up. Although, I truly wish it did during the semester. But, I have a bad habit of drinking way too much straight black tea on an empty stomach, and in that respect the caffeine content has been detrimental to my poor stomach. This is the perfect solution!

I’m getting almost a hay-like flavour tonight, with that natural sweetness. It’s perfect for the dinner success we just had. We decided today to make stew for the first time, and it turned out amazing! The scent and taste was just like home. :) And now we’re finishing off with cornmeal muffins and this tea. Yum!

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.
