Another sample that I got and haven’t logged yet.

I’m starting to find that I don’t care for the English Breakfast teas. This is the second one I’ve tried and I just think it’s not really my thing. I prefer an orange pekoe as it’s a bit milder. I think I just find the English Breakfast teas to be too much. They are quite strong and I don’t really enjoy them the way that I would want to. Gonna leave the last bit of my sample for my hunny to try. He said he tried some this week of a different brand and seemed to enjoy, so he might like this one.

I dislike EBs as well! more because I find them boring somehow. The aspects I love in an Assam or Ceylon disappear when they are blended together, IMO

Nice to know I’m not the only one :)

Bio

My love of tea didn’t start until a few years after highschool, when a friend of mine made me an Orange Pekoe tea with milk and sugar. It was like drinking sweet nectar from heaven. Ever since then, I’ve been hooked.

Since then, I’ve branched out to embrace different flavours and kinds of tea.

There’s no question in my mind that loose leaf tea is the way to go. Absolutely NOTHING compares to it. I do have the odd bagged tea but I definitely prefer loose.

I would have to say, my favourite kinds are (in no particular order): black, herbal and rooibos (definitely prefer the green to red, but will drink the red too).

White and green teas I find tricky. I’ve definitely started to love them, but I have to be careful I don’t overdue it and that I don’t oversteep.

I drink tea every single day. I absolutely love it. I can’t image my life without it.

I don’t log every time I drink a tea as I don’t want to spam everyone with tons of duplicate loggings, but I will log when I have a new tea, which happens on a regular basis and when I do a SIPDOWN! :D
