85

I’ve spent all day alone, not saying a word to another human being (face to face or verbally anyway). I think I’m crossing the path to loneliness. I hate when my husband has to work double shifts :(

At least I have everyone here to keep me company, and my tea of course. As for my kitties they are having a lazy day on my bed.

This blend looks like Bai Mu Dan that has been broken down into smaller pieces, nothing particularly special by appearance. Then when it comes to smelling the raw blend it’s a different story, sweet, juicy and floral grape is jumping out of the packet. A rummage around and I can spot a few huge dried grapes, I had to have a cheeky taste. So juicy and sticky, pure grape goodness. If the tea tastes like that grape did then this will be great.

I can taste the Bai Mu Dan at first (sweet, floral and dry) before going into a pure, juicy, grape flavour in the after taste. They compliment each other very well, both are delicate but provide enough flavour to be very pleasing. Honestly it tastes as good brewed as it does raw.

It’s almost like a very mild grape flavoured bottled water but much more tasty. I might try this iced next time, need to get a glass iced pitcher from Ikea first. Roll on tomorrow.

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.
