Of my handmade tea subscription, this tea was the one I was most excited for after it came out. It took a long time for me to get it, but now I have it and couldn’t wait to try it.

The dry tea reminds me of a cannelloni with a cream tomato sauce. It smells thick, creamy, and sweetly tomato-y. Now I am not a tomato fan. I mostly do not like tomatoes. I will eat it if it is sliced on a hamburger or sandwich, but other than that, I only like tomatoes in ketchup, tomato sauce and salsa. The smell is sweet tomatoes, with sage, the Yunnan is thick underneath the savory tomato scent.

The brewed tea tastes like a medium bold Yunnan tea, smooth. There is a sweet tomato flavour with the sage taste underneath the tomato. There is a slightly salty taste to the tea. I still get a bit of that pasta taste, which I presume to be from the Yunnan tea.

This tea is so delicious. I am still going to say I don’t like tomatoes, but I am going to hoard this tea to myself until it is sadly all gone!

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.
