This morning I was woken by the sound of my husband shouting “Oh my God!”. Immediately I woke up and was rushing out of bed when he came in and told me that he saw a Red Platty fish baby in our small upstairs tank. They used to have babies a lot (and I mean a lot) but for the better part of a year it stopped but it would seem the change into a smaller tank while our large one is on the mend is all they needed. It’s nice to get some good news for a change :) Though in reality I know it doesn’t mean the fry shall survive, but I’m really hoping.

In raw form this tea smells like fresh apple with a slight citrus kick. Very sweet and juicy. Not really getting the Kiwi come through but I only have enough tea for one pot so maybe this sample just doesn’t have much Kiwi in it…just a thought.

Once steeped this tea is dark yellow in colour with a slightly sweet apple and kiwi. By kiwi I mean it smells fruity and sour that resembles kiwi but I would not know if I hadn’t read it.

In flavour this is gentle in depth with a sweet grassy apple flavour and an after taste of lemongrass. There is also the same slightly sour fruity taste that’s in the smell which I’m calling kiwi like.

Very fresh and light, perfect for my first drink this morning.

Yay baby fish! Tony’s (the boyfriend) has a 120 Gallon tank & I love it when there are babies, although it can get kind of crazy. We started out with a pair of bristle nose plekos (among other fish), & now the tank is swarming with them. We used to trade them to the guy at our fav fish store, but he retired & the store closed. Petsmart won’t take them, so Tony gave away one of the parents. Now some of the young are getting big enough to reproduce, so I’m not sure what his plan is, LOL. We also had a very lively reproducing group of platies that Tony’s sister gave him. After awhile he gave them back, LOL. They were just too prolific!

It’s amazing how small the babies are. They just look like a see through blob with huge eyes :) Our big tank is 160 litre but we still have to wait and see if the repair has taken. If not we are going bigger. Rather than fish babies we have hundreds of cherry shrimp babies. They just breed like crazy but I love watching them swim around.

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.
