This is one tea that I got for my birthday and as I have it in both loose leaf (two bags of) and ready made tea bags (one box of) I had might as well try this one today.

It states to steep this for 7 minutes using boiling water and for the purpose of this analysis I have not used any sweeteners or creamers.

Colour: Honeyed dark brown.
Smell: Cinnamon and chocolate

Taste: Surprisingly subtle in flavour considering the steeping time. It tastes like a very watery drinking chocolate with a few added spices, cinnamon being the most noted. I am not a great fan of chocolate so while I am happy the taste is not stronger I am also disappointed that there is not much of anything to taste. A bit more cinnamon or ginger would not go a miss. It also seems to be very gaseous and has filled my stomach making me feel lethargic and full.

After having so much of this tea left I might end up trading them for something more to my personal taste.

Preparation

Bio

I’m 26 years old from Leicester, England named Kayleigh. I have a wonderful husband called Richard whom I am very lucky to have in my life.

I started off many years ago drinking herbal and fruit teas which over time peaked my interest in trying new types. Eventually I began to import and sample many different teas and cultures which I still do today. My life goal is to try as many teas and ways of having tea as possible.

Tea wise my cravings change constantly from pu erh one month to jasmine green to the next and so on.

I adore cats and have four of my own called Honey, Cassie, Mr Soots and Ivory.

I also have two fish tanks which thankfully my cats have no interest in. They house an array of tropical fish and shrimp.

I am a proud vegetarian and have been for the majority of my life. When I say vegetarian I mean just that as well, no fish or seafood, no chicken now and again, no animal products such as gelatine and cochineal.

I also enjoy watching Japanese Anime and horror films.

I am always up for tea swaps so if you see anything in my virtual cupboard then please contact me.

A short list to help swapping with me easier though honestly I am not fussy and am willing to try anything. Plus the notes below are usually, sometimes I love a tea that has an ingredient I tend to dislike and other times I hate a tea that I thought I would love.

Likes: Any fruit but especially melon and orange, vanilla, all tea types (black, green, white etc), nuts (any), flowers, ginger, chai.

Dislikes: Licorice, aniseed, clove, eucalyptus, lavender.
