66

Ok so I have recovered from my bike injuries and as I was getting back to normal my cousin almost died on Friday night which has left me shocked and upset. He was drunk and punched a window which cut a main artery in his arm and cut through the muscle down to the bone. Very nasty and messy and the ambulance crew said they are surprised he made it because of the amount of blood he lost. We are not sure if he will have full use of his arm again but time will tell.

Then today as I was again starting to pick up a little I had my e-mail account hacked. They sent all sorts of porn messages and links to numerous people with my face on them! Quite frankly that left me stunned too but thankfully I managed to change my password and kick them off so it shouldn’t happen again. Lucky I managed to keep it at all.

So that’s my last few days, I hope everyone has been well.
…………………………………………………………
This was a free sample from a while ago and I had completely forgotten all about. Well I got a new Japanese (I think) teapot with flowers and built in ceramic filter which I have been using of late and it’s perfect. Anything large leaved or ball shaped works well with it.

In raw form these balls/pearls are very small measuring roughly 3mm – 4mm in diameter on average. Some have silver tips that shine beautifully amongst the dark green leaves and they smell strongly of Jasmine, rather fresh too. Not as fuzzy/furry as I was hoping for though.

Once steeped this tea is yellow in colour with a sweet and strong pure jasmine aroma. Very clean smelling and pure.

Flavour is floral, sweet, a little astringent and perfumey. Stronger than the smell and a little more astringent than expected. I brewed low and had maybe 13 balls in one large pot, enough for 5-6 cups….balance works with my other pearls. Perhaps this tea is the ‘cheaper’ version hence no fur on the pearls which would explain the taste. It’s not as sweet as I was expecting either but there is still a hint there.

I think I will stick with my Pearls from Teavivre and Dragon Tea house. These are just too rough. :(

I’m so sorry that you’ve had such a rough time lately! I hope your cousin will be ok. That is such a scary thing.

Your teapot is beautiful! Love the different colors of green for the leaves.

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.
