Day 5 of the 52 teas 12 days of Christmas.

I have had a whole package of this one before. It is not too bad. I think in comparison to the pancake breakfast, the pancake breakfast if better. But this one is still quite a good blend.

I brought this to work today. I normally add some rock sugar to this when drinking it at home but forgot to bring some to work today. I have some maple candies at work so I thought I would try adding one of those to the tea to see if it would add some sweet maple syrup taste. It did not dissolve very good and left a melted sticky mess on the bottom of my cup, but it did add some sweetness.

Today this tea tastes quite bread-y and egg-y. There is a sweetness from the maple candy. There is definitely a cinnamon and icing sugar taste. I have never had that egg taste before so I am wondering if the maple candy brought that out. This is still good, even if the flavour profile is a bit different today.

Crazy that you can taste the eggs!

I know , it was weird. I never tasted that with this tea before. I am wondering if it was something in the maple candy I was tasting. I am going to try this one with maple syrup to see if I get the same flavours, I don’t think I have tried it like that yet.

I’m sure that would be fabulous. I’ve been meaning to pick some maple syrup up so I can do many Steepsterites have been doing and using that as a sweetener. Genius.

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.
