Ahhhh mount grey…how I love you so.

This tea is super duper delicious. Any bergamot lovers out there (and even some of the haters) would love this tea :) It is a moderately bold black base with a very strong but sweet and smooth bergamot. I should drink this tea more, but I don’t because I want to savour it.

To all reading this post, please know, I have climbed the summit of Mount Grey!

And a Happy Canada Day to all! There has been quite devastating rain though my province and the neighbouring province over the past week. Where I am, I have measured 5.75" of rain in the last 5 days. In my city alone there are a reported 400 houses with flooding/sewer back up. There are also dozens and dozens of communities under a state of emergency and one even evacuated due to flooding. My house has been safe, thankfully my sump pump is working steadily. My sincerest thoughts to everyone who is spending this Canada Day throwing out personal belongings, cleaning up sewer back up, or who are displaced and not able to be with friends and family. The sun has finally come out to shine today, it will get better :)

Thanks. I am glad too, some of my neighbours have flooded pretty bad so I think I am lucky. I have done a lot of work to the landscaping to make sure the water flows in the right direction. But when you get that much rain sometimes it feels like it doesn’t really matter.

I’m happy to hear you’re doing ok! My mom was in the area that was evacuated, and the place Tre is while on vacation there flooded pretty badly in the basement. I’m happy Saskatoon didn’t get it so bad. Seriously crazy rain…

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.
