Time to start pulling out my Christmas themed teas. I’m watching ‘Orange Is The New Black’ on Netflix, very entertaining!

This smells sweet and minty, exactly like candy cane. The mint is quite distinctly peppermint but definitely more like sweet peppermint than pure, leafy peppermint.

Taste is nice and sweet with a refreshing peppermint but the black base is still quite strong. I like that I can taste the black tea, it’s smoky yet malty and dark which is a nice contrast against the sweet and sticky peppermint. If I was to be critical of this tea then I would say that the peppermint would have been nicer if it was just a little stronger but honestly by itself this is very tasty.

I have no idea why this doesn’t have any other reviews, it really should have. My first Christmas tea of the year and I have plenty of this one to celebrate the holidays with. :)

I think I watched all of Orange is The New Black in just under three days, and I really enjoyed it (but the finale though!). Hope you like it too :)

I’m only on episode 6 so far but I’m really enjoying it so far. :) The last Netflix only series I saw was Hemlock Grove and I loved that too.

I just started it and we’re hooked as well ! I wanted to watch it right away but couldn’t convince J to try it. I’m glad he finally decided to.
Now I want to research what’s true and what’s not since it’s based on a memoir…

it’s good, eh? hmmm maybe i’ll give it a try…

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.
