Another entry while I relax tonight and watch QI (I love Stephen Fry). Only one bag of this tea but the entry below mine seemed non too impressed so curious to see the result.

I do like fresh tasting green tea and usually brew loose leaf instead of bagged, as this tea is bagged I already have a feeling about how I shall rate this. I am however, trying not to let it cloud my judgement.

Colour: Dark amber liquidy goodness.
Smell: Extremely mild fragrance, does smell like green tea but not strongly.

Taste: Extremely airy and light, very hard to detect much flavour or taste. Not as stale as various other bagged green tea’s that I have had before BUT it is not as fresh as my usual loose leaf. Still drinkable…. just very subtle with everything.

On par with my premonitions in honesty so I am not blown away by this tea at all. Average at best and if I get given any more of this tea I shall make a mental note to brew it for longer.

It’s still relaxing though :)

I had some Bromley peach tea, that wasn’t stellar by any means, but it was decent for iced tea.

I think flavour of some sort would be much better for this brand. I felt at times as if I was just drinking hot water. Well when I say much better I mean a slightly improved rating to somewhere around 55 instead of the meagre 38 that it got.

QI is awesome. I’ve developed a weakness for Alan Davies. :)

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.
