On the tenth day of Christmas my true love gave to me a mug full of … boo-berry cotton candy tea.

I had a cup of this before the review so I knew what to expect. With cotton candy being featured earlier in this set I was delighted enough with unflavoured, I had not considered adding flavour so my mind is all over the place with delight just at the prospect of it. That is why I had to have a sneak preview :)

It’s 10:30pm and at midnight I am going to do the last of my Christmas food shopping, it sounds mental I know but the queues should be short. Plus I’m no stranger to midnight shopping, it’s for the socially challenged individuals such as myself. I’m a little shy that’s all. Anyway this tea is to hopefully bring some calm before the storm.

The tea smells wonderfully sweet and fruity which is rather magical as it only looks like a standard green tea blend. Once brewed it still smells deliciously of sweet blueberries. The odour is stronger than the taste but in a way the subtlety is the charm, it makes it a green tea with flavouring rather than just a flavour with green tea thrown in. Saying that it mentions gunpowder green which I find is usually a little smoky but I can’t detect it at all in the blend. It’s definitely blue berry in flavour so it would suit my fruity moods too.

Some may like to add sugar to sweeten it up but for me it’s not necessary. This is another one of Franks tea’s that I think would be amazing as an iced tea.

Profile

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.
