Hi :) I’m Sarah, 25, 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. I’m still enjoying discovering and trying new varieties and suppliers, though, and I have a large number of flavoured whites in my stash just waiting to be tried!
I’m a big drinker of herbal and fruit tisanes (particularly at work), and I also like rooibos blends (52 Teas, mainly), 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, although I’m trying desparately to find the right one for me. I’ve had the biggest triumphs with milk oolongs, so far, but I’ll try anything once.
You’ve probably had enough of me now, so I’m going to shut up. Needless to say, though, I really love tea.
