I have had this one in my cupboard for a while and I forgot what the blend was. On first smell I was having a hard time placing the scent. It was kind of fruity and kind of floral, naturally sweet. I just couldn’t place it. So I looked up the description and then everything made sense. It was honey. But not store bought honey, wild honey.

The tea tastes strong and malty, almost like a breakfast blend. The honey is sweet but it is not overly sweet or overpowering. It is more that the tea is scented with the honey, not that the honey was added to the tea.

Profile

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.
