Chamomile makes me really drowsy so I made a whole pot of this, in the hopes of catching a bit of sleep tonight. When I opened up the bag, the dry leaf scent was very pleasant, not at all what I expected (lavender and I, we’re not really tight). When I smelled the steeped leaves, I was mortified: pure lavender extravaganza. But you know what? I’m still going to try it, because mj1851 sent this to me because she likes it, and I want to like it to.

But I don’t. This is pure lavender juice. I added about 3 tablespoons of honey before I was able to drink it. It’s not that it’s bad, it’s that I despise lavender. I’m not rating this one for obvious reasons, but I will still finish the tea, for the chamomile.

mj1851 I tried this, so now you have to try Pink Lemonade. Warm. xD

Aw…I feel bad for making you try this now. I’m glad you at least liked the Killer’s Vanilla despite the lavender. I promise I will try the pink lemonade and the coffee pu-erh. Now that I have tried all the pouch and mini tin samples, I’m think I’m going to just try all the other ones in numerical order. That way I have to try those two and can’t put them off til the end :-)

Bio

I was introduced to the world of tea after trying to find a way to stop binging on sugar at night (I have a bit of insomnia). Then I had the brilliant idea of going to David’s Tea to get some sweet dessert-y teas to replace all the crap I was eating, whilst still satisfying my sweet tooth.

And then I tried an Oolong and I was done for.

So this is me, exploring the world of tea with excitement, spending way too much money on it, drinking impressive amounts of it, and although I do love flavoured teas, I am now beginning to try high quality straight teas, and trying to learn as much as I can. I have rarely been so passionate about something so quickly.

My boyfriend thinks I am crazy with all my teas. I actually hide some from him when I get deliveries, just so he won’t panic haha. When he does say something, I just reply that to me, tasting tea is like tasting wine, and it brings me the same kind of joy as eating chocolate or eating fine food. Only better.

Flavours I Like: Most fruits, Cinnamon, Licorice, Cloves, Pepper, Caramel, Vanilla, Chocolate, Cardamom, Floral Teas, Honey, Coffee, Pastry/Bread, Smoky, Woody

Flavours I dislike: strong vegetal tastes (a little is ok), Rooibos, Mate, Lemon, Raspberry (for the most part), Orange, Lavender, Eucalyptus, Overpowering Mint,

Other than that, un-related to tea, I love make-up artistry, parrots and birds (in real life, not objects lol), crime and trial stories, flowers, baking, wine, reading, collecting teapots and mugs and stand-up comedy.

I love Dexter, Orange is the New Black, Hannibal, all reality food and cooking series…

As I’m re-reading this I can’t help but to notice how I love extra dark things and extra happy things with no real middle. Hm. xD “I like staying up to date on murder trials…and drinking tea while bird watching!” I’m NOT weird, I swear. :)
