My friend bought me this as a birthday gift and it’s amazing! Everyone was saying that it had a chocolate taste, but I didn’t really find that to be the case. However, it is so good!! I love this tea. I’m not even sure how to describe this tea, other than good.

Upon another tasting, I think I finally figured out what it tastes like. It’s more of a caramel flavour that I’m tasting. It’s delicious! I usually add a splash of milk and sugar to it, being as it’s a black tea. This one will probably be a permanent one in my tea cupboard.

Update: I made myself a pot of this tea today. It is SO good! I know I already said that, but it is amazing. :)

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
