drank Honey Vanilla by Teaopia

Yuck—this was not my cup of tea. I received this as a sample at Teaopia’s recent holiday preview event. As soon as I smelled it steeping, I knew I wasn’t going to like it. In fact, the smell was so strong that my coworkers commented on it. It has an unpleasant and overpowering honey-like smell.

I couldn’t taste any hazelnut flavour—just a honey-like flavour with some sweetness that wasn’t appealing. I was actually tempted to dump the tea and not drink it. I’ll definitely be giving away my second sample packet!

Bio

I’ve been in love with tea since I discovered the awesomeness of loose-leaf tea about four years ago.

In general, I prefer black, green, oolong, and matcha teas. I’m not a big fan of flavoured teas, but every so often I come across one I like. I also like peppermint, but that’s about it for tisanes.

I recently tried matcha for the first time, and it’s seriously growing on me.

My favourite tea accessory is my chasen holder, hence my profile pic, and my favourite teaware is the shudei kyusu I got from Den’s Tea for 99 cents. I use it both for cooling water and steeping tea. Probably the best 99 cents I’ve spent. :)
