Hi :) I’m Sarah, 24, and I live in Norwich in the UK. I’m currently enjoying my journey into the realm of whole-leaf tea, which started a couple of years ago now, when a friend introduced me to Teapigs. Since then, I’ve been insatiable.
I still have a deep rooted (and probably life-long) preference for black tea. All-time favourites are Ceylon and Assam, but I’m currently experimenting with a few diffeent Darjeelings. I also enjoy flavoured black teas, on the rare occasion they’re not complete let-downs.
I’ve discovered a deep adoration for white tea, and I’d not be without bags of Silver Needle and Pai Mu Tan. My current favourite for both of these is Adagio, but I’m still enjoying discovering and trying new varieties and suppliers.
I’m a big drinker of herbal and fruit tisanes (particularly at work), and I also like rooibos, and a good chai latte.
As yet, I’m not over keen on green tea, although I’m willing to be pursuaded. There are a couple in my cupboard at the moment, but they’re a relative rarity among what I buy. Same with oolongs, really. I’ll try anything once, though, so I’ll probably never rule them out completely.
You’ve probably had enough of me now, so I’m going to shut up. Needless to say, though, I really love tea.
