I didn’t realize this one was a herbal blend until I made it. For some reason I was thinking it would be a white or a green blend.

This one is ok. The dry tea is quite artificial and it does have the alcohol type smell to it. The brewed tea does have some pistachio flavour. There is a creamy flavour and feel to the liquor. I am getting some nuttiness, but it is almost like the nut flavour it bitter or astringent (almost like a nut that has gone bad).

This one is ok. I am definitely tasting the chamomile in the blend and I would prefer not to.

Consider this an official poke to see how things are trucking in your world since it’s been a bit :)

I am officially still around. Just super busy (again) :(
Haven’t had time to do much tea reviewing so just drinking all the old teas I have (which is lots!). I will be back soon…I hope. Thanks for the welfare check :)

some day we’ll all be less busy :)

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.
