Life is better when you have heating on, and the sun starts to shine between the clouds. I’m having this plain, with some Moroccan mint that I grow in pots outside my apartment. This tea grows bitter very quickly, so if you don’t enjoy the bitterness of tea, add sugar, honey, stivia or any other kind of sweetener that takes your fancy.
I’m hoping that the bitterness and the mint will clear away some of the fogginess left by the cold (which, alas, has yet to pack its bags and leave me be).

Bio

An Israeli computer programmer with a passion for tea (mostly bought in yearly shopping sprees in the UK), particularly black, oolong and white. I don’t generally enjoy flavoured teas or herbal infusions, but if a tea sounds interesting and smells nice I’ll most definitely try it. I drink several cups of tea a day, usually one or two in the morning, another one after lunch and one or two in the evening. My favourite tea so far is Lao Cong Zi Ya from Norbu Tea, but I’m constantly trying new teas. Only in the past year have I branched into Pu’erh and non-roasted oolongs. Finding good tea in Israel is difficult, so I import most of my teas from yearly visits to London, or from online retailers. If you see something in my cupboard that sparks your interest and you would like to swap with me, then please message me. I’m almost always up for a swap.
