This one surprised me, and I’m wondering if it’s what was written on the bag? (Received this in a swap from Dinosara). The reason why I wonder is only because one name was scribbled out, and this is much better than the average rating that I’m finding on here, from folks I know I have similar taste buds to. Also wondering if there’s some form of berry in here that I may be (mildly) allergic to…

Brewed up green initially (weird) then a light coppery brown once finished. Smells of caramel, tastes of it, with something berry-ish in the background. Whatever it is, I quite like it, other than the lip burning bit, so I’m sadly dumping the last third of the cup. Still really grateful to have tried it!

Flavors: Berries, Caramel

Hmmm, should be the right tea (I think I accidentally wrote the wrong name on the bag) but I am not totally sure. Weird!

Bio

A few years ago, the obsession with tea started. The cupboard got bigger and bigger, more swaps occurred, group buys, secret rendezvous with local teapassionistas… and that’s how you end up with 500+ different kinds of tea in your home. At one time.

Now, it’s purge time. Time to gather what’s needed and let go of the rest. Almost all of the tea was given away, sold, or otherwise shared. A few relics still remain. It’s still a challenge to avoid the chipmunk-like hoarding of The Teas, yet, the lightness of being from having so little compels me more. And so, I’m happy to share (anytime!) and will occasionally desire small amounts of tea for swaps, just to try.

As for the day-to-day stuff, I’m focused almost entirely on Love, (yes, with a capital L), Spirit/Self, transformation, and work (dating columnist and consultant).

No-can-do: lavender, overly floral (French florals, or florals that are creamy rather than, well, floral work well!), sugar, Splenda, all grains.

Love: fruity, dessert, chai, spicy, all types of tea.
