I knew I would like this tea just by reading the description. But it was never available in Canada, no matter where I looked. I couldn’t even get it online unless I paid huge amounts for shipping (more for shipping than the tea). So I was super excited when I found it online at a Canadian retailer, and ordered some.

Murphey’s Law.

Two days after my internet order, I stumbled across this in a local health food store for super cheap.

It is delicious. The dry tea smells like orange rind and clove. The brewed tea tastes like orange, cinnamon and clove. There is some sweetness to it. A bit of orange rind but it is very light, and mostly adds a sweet and spicey taste. The black tea is fairly mild, but it is also the decaf version, so I am not sure if that is why it is mild or not.

I feel like this tea was made just for me!

I don’t taste a lot of difference between the decaf and regular versions – this was my intro into tea, besides my families Lipton iced tea, and yes it still tastes quite delicious. I just wish there was more tea in the bag so I could make more than 5 ounces at a time.

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.
