Bittersweet sipdown here. whatshesaid reminded me there’s no point in hoarding teas because when you eventually, if ever, drink them, they don’t have that flavour you once loved.

This one stared at me every time I opened my cupboard. I imagined it saying “why don’t you love me?” while I thought “it’s because I love you that I hoard you”. Hmm, anthropomorphizing tea? Perhaps all the studying has finally pushed me over the edge… :P

This tea really embodies strawberry rhubarb and the crumble aspect of a dessert. One of the few David’s teas I still love. I wish they hadn’t discontinued it.

I never tried that one, how did it compare to the parfait?

And glad I could inspire you to drink down an old fave…just think, now there’s room for new teas!

I didn’t actually enjoy the parfait haha. The hibiscus was a bit much for me, but I should retry it because I tried it early on in my “tea career”. The cinnamon in this one really works in it’s favour.

whatshesaid

Ahh yeah I can see that. I bet this one was better, more desserty.

Courtney

Much more so, yep. From what I remember of the parfait.

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.
