From the Great Canadian TTB.

This one smells so good. It smells strongly of sour green apples (my favorite) and it also smells very sweet.

I brewed this one two bags for 8 oz. It actually turned out quite weak. I was disappointed in the taste. It is very flat. There is a slight apple flavour but I am not getting the same sour green tart taste that would go along with the smell. I do get a sweetness. Kind of like caramel. It actually mixes quite well with the rooibos.

This one gets slightly more flavourful as it cools but it is still pretty flat.

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.
