I was contacted this morning by the lady that I got Ebony and Ivory from a while ago now. She said that her cat has just had another litter and a new black male kitten is available if I would like him. She was so very sorry about Ebony’s passing that she made sure I was the first one she would ask. Well after many tears and a long chat with my husband we agreed to adopt the little man. We are waiting for news on his age and a picture but it gives us a chance to think of a name for him. So far in the running are Sooty and Loki. :)

…………………………………………………………..

This arrived last week with my first Tealux order. Assam is usually a morning style tea for me but my husband requested a black tea tonight and this one has recently been put into a clean jar ready for use.

In appearance the leaves are golden brown in colour and look long, thin and squiggly. They have a musky, wooden scent with a delicate hint of sweet malt.

The first few sips reveal a smooth yet creamy Assam of medium strength with hints of wood, musk, malt, dark treacle and raisins. It’s a little dry in the after taste but not much at all.

As it cools the sweetness increases and it gains a subtle velvety smoke trait.

A nice Assam not too dissimilar from golden Dian Hong. A winner for me and the hubby.

Awwww kitten! My vote is on Sooty. :) I once knew a dog called Loke, so far me in terms of pet names that’s a dog-name. :)

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.
