A decent, robust E.B. nothing overly special but good for a wake-up in the morning.

Leftover from my mother’s Christmas tea stash. The mint isn’t too overpowering and it has a nice hint of vanilla sweetness to it. Not really tasting the green tea much, but whatever.

drank Egyptian Licorice by Yogi Tea

Not being a huge licorice fan I was a bit dubious about this one but it’s actually quite nice. The licorice lends the tea a sweetness and its flavor is quite natural and not overly pronounced. I wish I could taste the other ingredients a bit more though, maybe I need to steep it longer.

drank Earl Grey by Tetley

This is a pretty weak and uninspiring tea, I guess I’ve been spoiled by better quality ones.

drank Belgian Mint by Tea Forte

Fresh mint with a hint of warm, almost malty cocoa. It’s interesting that I seem to taste the mint and chocolate one after the other instead of both mixed together. Anyway, anything that has chocolate in the ingredient list is always a plus.

I drank this straight without any milk or sugar and it cleansed my palate nicely. It’s a fairly mild chai, good for people who don’t drink this type of tea often.

drank Lemon Ginger by Stash Tea Company

The lemon sort of takes a backseat to the ginger, but it’s still a good cuppa. It went very well with a sweet dessert.

A pretty standard-tasting earl grey, although certainly better quality than most of the stuff you’d get at the grocery store.

drank My Friend by Bag Ladies Tea

The tea bag smells good enough to eat right out of the package. The Ceylon masks the taste of the rooibos for the most part – not that I mind, rooibos by itself is too tart for me. The caramel and vanilla are a nice little aftertaste, not overpowering but definitely there.

Bio

I’m a university student in her twenties who’s currently working her way toward a Bachelor of Natural Resource Science degree. I love both science and science-fiction and I’m a history nut on top of that. Maybe I should just call myself a nerd and leave it there. ;)

I’ve been drinking tea since I was young but it’s only in the past couple years that I’ve become interested in the good-quality stuff.

I’m also a self-proclaimed Grammar-Nazi, and improper capitalization and spelling invariably makes me twitch (yes, I mean you!)
