I didn’t realise this was an earl grey + berry tea. I, as a general rule don’t like most earl greys…that damn blergamot you know. :( However, this was an interesting blend with the addition of the berry. It would never be something i’d need to stock but it was a fairly enjoyable cup this morning. the base didn’t overwhelm and there was no bitterness or blah to the tea.

I had this one as my morning tea a long time ago lol Another black from cornelia bean that i can get behind. It’s slightly malty, with a hint of sweet and an almost sweet/citrusy sort of feel to it as well. Over all a nice cup to start my morning with!

I pulled this one out of the box last night as well because ginger and i? we’re the best of friends. However, in this blend it just doesn’t work. The ginger isn’t there enough and the rooibos and “citrus” just makes this a sort of sour blend. Hopefully this will work for someone else!

I had this last cup of this one last night and was pleasantly surprised. This was a a relatively nice evening herbal. It’s nothing to write home about but in the grand scheme of things it was a nice chamomile/mint herbal. I didn’t get a lot of the citrus flavours but the vanilla did seem to smooth out the blend.

I finished off the last of this one from the tea box today and it was WELL worth it. I think if there’d been more in the box i would have taken it out :) It’s not the most perfect raspberry tea but there’s something about it that is quite refreshing. Even when it was thoroughly cooled it had a pleasant taste, no bitterness and the base was present but blended with the flavouring instead of working against it. Thanks for sharing!

I thought this one might be ok. I was wrong. there’s something in this one that just doesn’t work. In theory it sounds like a great idea but in practice – no thanks. Took one sip and refused to drink the rest lol. It’s just not a great blending of ingredients and there’s a weird note in it. Ah well, can’t love them all!

This was another from this morning and one i was looking forward to trying, if only to get a better idea of some of the other straight teas from Cornelia Bean. I’m familiar with their teas through swaps but i’ve only ever really had their flavoured. This one was a really nice, smooth cup of malty goodness. from this morning. I’d be willing to pick up more of this in the future i think

this has been a busy day today…. this was from much earlier in the day and was a great cup of tea for being out and about. Its an average every day sort of tea but that doesn’t make it bad :)

I have the 2014 version that i received as a sample in one of my YS orders. I don’t have a lot to say on this one besides the fast that it was light, refreshing and sweet. Initial impressions for this one are really positive. Later steepings it became a bit woody but still really nice. I enjoy the random samples i get with my YS orders – they’re almost always something i wouldn’t have necessarily picked for myself but still enjoy!

So no real clue what to write about myself here. A friend got me into drinking loose tea and it’s something I thoroughly enjoy though I have nowhere near the experience that many folks on the boards seem to have.

My other interests are cycling, reading, board games, disney cruises, world of warcraft and dancing – in no particular order. I love travelling and am currently working on trying to get my other half to as many place in the world as possible.
