I’m almost done with my 1oz pouch of this, and I must say it is such a burst of delicious fresh strawberries and rhubarb, I’m so happy Sil won the contest with it!

It was my tea of the afternoon…one thing I really like is the tartness of it without being one of those hibiscus overdose!

The base being Khongea Golden Tippy Assam, it doesn’t get completely erased by the other flavours, you still know you’re having a cup of good quality black tea.

The smell is as wonderful as the taste is, which is pretty rare in terms of flavoured teas. It goes on the shopping list, cause I will reorder, that’s for sure!

cryptickoi

you really do love rhubarb :)

TheTeaFairy

Yeah, lol, what’s up with that today???

keychange

I’m reordering this one also!

TheTeaFairy

Keychange, do you like the smell as much as I do?

keychange

I do. I could get lost in it. It’s also somehow reminiscent of childhood, although I don’t know if that’s due to any particular association or if it’s just that strawberry freshness will always be inextricably linked to unblemished innocence haha

TheTeaFairy

It is for me also, i think it reminds me of those barley sugar lollies:

Profile

Bio

Time to update this profile of mine…it’s 2015!!

I am French Canadian, so please forgive me if my English is not always perfect :-/

My relationship with tea in a nutshell:

I’m married to straight Black. I have torrid love affairs with Oolong and Puerh. I party with Green and White occasionally. Flavored are not my BFF, I usually stay away from them.

Love Steepster, a place for tea lovers, where you learn and share with others.

About me:

I am a free spirit, I let people be who they are and expect the same in return.

Books! I love classic literature, but also modern and pretty much anything that captures my attention.

Music is also something I can’t live without… From Bach to Nirvana, my ears know no boundaries…

Animal and nature lover, amateur photographer.

I’ve been drinking tea for as long as I can remember.

Drinking tea is a sensorial experience. The name in itself “Camellia Sinensis” lingers the promess of an adventure for the senses…

Not a big «swapper», but will occasionally. Not because I don’t want to share but because I’m trying not to hoard so much.

Also, I have narrowed down the teas I really like over the years, and I don’t feel the need to try and buy everything the way I used to. (Maybe I have become a tea snob? Sigh…)

My ratings: because I pretty much drink only teas that I judge exceptional, my ratings are usually high. Don’t be shocked to see lots of 90’s and a few 100’s. That’s because I’ve had my share of crapy teas and I’m done with that ;-)

You can find me on Instagram here, I post about my tea sessions mostly, but also about the beautiful nature that surrounds me, and my fury companions :-)
