Well I’m awake and wrapped in my robe in a zombie like state (and looking very much like one this morning too). I need tea and I need food. … tea…must drink tea….zombie moan. No brains for me though this morning I think I will stick with fruit salad. Sticking on the fruity side of things this morning I will try this fruity based green Sencha tea. Another sample to use. :)

The blend looks pretty enough with green leaves and red petals finely chopped and mixed together with a few pieces of dried fruit. It has a sweet and fruity yet buttery scent.

Once steeped the tea is yellow in colour with a toasted, fruity, buttery aroma.

The Sencha is buttery, toasty, thick and bitter while the fruit is waxy, sweet and sour. I can’t get past this thick waxy taste that reminds me of the smell of manure (it’s strange how a flavour can remind you of a smell). The fruit is not really that fruity and I cannot tell what fruit it is or even guess. There is only a little bitterness and it can be over looked if I set my mind to it.

It’s drinkable but just not my ‘cup of tea’ and I’m glad I only ha a sample and now it’s gone.

I am 26 years old from Leicester, England. I have been drinking tea for many years now and have been getting more and more appreciative about good tea’s. I like to try new and exciting tea’s and import regularly as a treat.

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 am also an avid reader and enjoy curling up with a book (mostly crime, horror, thriller, literature genres) in one hand and a cup of tea in the other.

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.
