On the ninth day of Christmas my true love gave to me a mug full of… lemon cardamom chun mee tea.

I took a huge sigh when I saw the flavour as I absolutely hate cardamom. :(

Whilst raw the tea smells of lemon but not specifically cardamom (thankfully). Once brewed it forms a golden honey colour with the same sharp lemon smell.

Well here goes nothing sip… wow not as bad as I was expecting. Again it’s lemony with lemongrass being quite strong and it does sort of taste like cardamom but I love lemongrass so I can see past that. It’s very fresh and clean tasting without being over powering or too sharp. It’s also naturally sweet and pleasing, the chun mee is light with a slight green perfumey aftertaste.

It’s nicer than I thought it would be and while it does taste like cardamom it has more than just that element to it. Quite simply if you dislike one thing you can appreciate another. :)

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.
