Cup of the morning graciously offered by the lovely Terri Harplady.

Oh, me and Terri, we do love our black teas don’t we?

Haven’t checked if they ship to Canada yet and if shipping is reasonable, but I’m this close of placing an order…

It had me at Persian Princess, what a pretty name!

It’s supposed to be a blend. Not much info on it, except for that sugar cube thing, nice fun fact. Not going to try it though, I know it takes a special kind of hard sugar and really, who needs it?

Cause this tea is so naturally sweet, I wouldn’t dare add anything to it!

It’s rich, malty and full bodied…Assam and Keemun maybe? Slightly earthy with hints of smoke.

I used the whole sample in my brand new 24oz mug…so big, it’s like drinking directly from a tea pot ;-)

FABULOUS BREAKFAST TEA!!!

Terri, I knew our swap meant trouble :-)

I remember reading the description for this tea and thinking wow that must be really strong or bitter or something if they have to drink it with sugar in their mouths… So strange that it’s naturally sweet anyway! Hah, now I’m picturing a fairy trying to drink out of a 24 ounce mug… Lul.

Haha! Maybe I’m just sitting on the rim :-)

Or maybe this is how it would look like :

I don’t know if you’ve seen Bee Movie, but I kind of imagined it like that.

The idea of drinking it with milk does come form the same culture that will stew a tea up to several hours until it is a thick black paste and then add hot water. In that case, the sugar tends to be more necessary!

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 :-)
