Checkmate, oh checkmate. My long forgotten friend. I have only a small bit of you left, as I forgot you were even in my cupboard still.

I think I may have used a bit too warm of water this morning on your sweet, delicious leaves, but you still taste so yummy.

Oh dear checkmate… I’m almost out of you… I don’t know if I should stock up now or later, but dear sweet checkmate, I won’t forget to get more of you soon. You will not be forgotten, dear friend. I promise you that.

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
