First of all, this tea came with a magnet, a magnet with a dinosaur on it. I don’t care if I have not tasted the tea yet, it is the best tea ever. Tea and dinosaurs, YES!

The dry tea is bergamot lightly scented with black tea.

The brewed tea is much lighter in colour than I would have expected, but the taste did not dissapoint. It is a strong, robust black tea base with strong bergamot flavour. The bergamot is sweet enough that there is no need to add any sugar, for my tastes anyway. Even though the lack base is strong I am getting little to no astringency which is good. This is a very bold tea.

Well I have scaled the summit of Mount Gray and thoroughly enjoyed myself. Now it is time to scale Mount Tuesday.

This is still on my list to try. I have so many Earl Greys already. Sounds delicious though.

What? A dinosaur magnet? :| Ah man, now I really wish I’d caved, but I hadn’t had this when the sale was on and didn’t know it was so tasty!

Let’s hope they throw in dinosaurs during the next free shipping sale. And let’s hope they do it for Independence day!

Also, I giggled a bit about “Mount Tuesday” :P

I didn’t buy at the first couple sales and then kicked myself for it so I gave in on this most recent sale. And I have not been disspointed. The magnet shows a pic of Mount Gray with. T-Rex in front of it. He he. So awesome! The other two teas, double knit and tiger assam, came with equally awesome buttons.

Oooh -thanks for letting me know! I did get the Tiger Assam button, so maybe the magnet is a standard thing and I can get it next time! :P

Bio

I am a lifetime tea lover.

I did foray into the world of coffee for a period of time, but I returned to my true love. I still, however, enjoy a good cup of java.

My all time favorite tea is Earl Grey, which I drink every morning, the stronger the bergamot the better. I definitely prefer natural oil of bergamot to artificial flavouring.

I mostly like black and dark oolong teas. My current favs are Fujian blacks, Keemun and Assams, and Wuyi oolongs. I gravitate towards anything with lychee in it. I also drink a lot of herbal blends but am wary of hibiscus. I do not favour mate, or pu’erh tea, although I have found a few blends that I like. (I so badly want to like straight pu’erh tea but it all tastes gross to me. I keep trying though). Rooibos, green and white teas fall somewhere in the middle. I find myself gravitating towards heavily roasted oolongs and teas from Paris/France based companies.

I love iced teas and cold brews.

My current tea goal is to make the perfect cup of chai from scratch – almost there…I think.

I am in love with the whole experience of tea.
