Every year, my friend and I get each other three gifts as our birthdays are only a few weeks apart. She is an exceptional gift-getter, and she always has a theme. This year, the theme was around the world, since I love learning about new places and cultures. She printed out boarding passes and I got to choose which boarding pass to start with (aka which gift to open first). I had the options China, Canada, and the United Kingdom.

I should perhaps write the rest of my birthday story on my blog, but long story short – the United Kingdom gift had SO MANY TEAS. From all around the world! It was labelled United Kingdom because that’s where she purchased them haha.

I was thrilled this was one of the teas because just last night I was on the S&V website contemplating their Nepalese black. This tea is delightful. It’s a lighter black tea, but still so comforting. For knowing next to nothing about tea, she really nailed it.

(P.S. Here’s the blog post if anyone is interested :) http://adultlearningblog.blogspot.ca/2014/01/birthday-in-review.html)

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

That’s my mug!

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, rooibos (specifically red, I’m more open to green), honeybush, and matés are not my favourite. I tend to avoid them altogether unless others find them so amazing it would be a travesty to not at least try.

Likes:
Coconut, creaminess, yogurt, toffee, cacao (true dark chocolate flavour), rhubarb.

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