drank Christmas Tea by The T Shop

I don’t like orange in my tea, so I tend to drown this in milk. In saying that, I adore sweet teas, and the sweetness in this is very satisfactory, I am seriously considering giving this another chance

drank Holiday Tea by Harney & Sons

I really like the nice red tin :D I honestly chose the tea because I like the tin.
I love the soft warm spicy-ness, but this is unfortunately one of those teas which tastes like water when brewed too short, and undrinkable when brewed too long D;

drank Vanilla Comoro by Harney & Sons

I originally got this as a Christmas present for my father but kept it for myself (sorry dad!) as it was just too good.
It smells diviiiiiiiiine, a little like mint when in the packet, but tastes like biscuits.
It’s looooooooovely, I can’t get enough.
Even though it’s double use, like many of Harney and Son’s teas, I tend to make a big mug of this rather than save the bag.
I love this first thing on a cold morning with a cinnamon quill…mmmmm :D

drank Creme Brulee by T2
10 tasting notes

This has to be my all time favourite tea, it completes my morning t finish my pot in the morning I have been known to bung it in the fridge for the afternoon.
It always cheers me up, a large mug of creme brulee, a good book and my nutbag cat are the best thing for a rainy afternoon like today. GAH, is summer a foreign concept, New Zealand?

I adore this tea. I have been drinking English Breakfast with my father since I was 8 years old, and it remains a fast favourite, even though I drink flavoured tea more often. I got a tin of this tea for Christmas (2011) and by the beginning of the next February, I am down to two tea bags. I think it is because this version of English Breakfast is creamier than others, which have an earthier flavour. I love it.

Hmmm… I am not quite sure what to think of this tea. On the one hand, I love the scent, like Turkish delight~ so delicious! But on the other, the taste is so disappointing! It tastes nothing like the scent, it tastes nothing like anything. It’s so disappointing D;

Profile

Bio

Hola, world!

My name is Geneva, and at the time of writing I am a 17 year old tea lover from New Zealand (But a book lover, not a hipster!)

I have been drinking tea since I was 8 years old, and recently was shown to T2 in Botany Downs by my cousin, when I was about 14. Ever since, my love for flavoured teas has grown and grown, and I own a large collection of T2 and Harney and Sons teas, which, aside from supermarket teas, are all that seem to be avaliable in Auckland D;

My favourite teas are Creme Brulee, by T2, and Vanilla Comoro by Harney and Sons.

I also keep a tea journal to record my thoughts on tea I own or try, as well as ratings of cafes or tea houses, and ideas for my future teabus!

Please feel free to message me! I don’t bite, unless you want me to ;D
