Dear mj thank you SO much for sending this: it is SO good! Another cold brew, because I don’t know about you guys, but over here, your dress most certainly sticks to your thighs when you sit down for too long. It is SO H0T! Now to the actual tea part: the strawberry flavour in this tea is perfect: not too much, just enough to say it’s in therre. It does not outshine the oolong, but compliments it beautifully. There is a whisper of floral notes and a bit of a grassy flavour that pairs really well with the flavouring. The astringency of the tea is so light, and gives the tea an almost bubbly quality, like the mouth feel you get after drinking good champagne. Such a soft and wonderful tea. mj thanks again, this is rocking my world right now :D

I like reading your reviews because i feel like you describe teas very well, the perfect mix of someone who sounds like she knows her stuff but still relatable

Omg THANK YOU! It means so much to hear that! Sometimes I read other people’s ultra poetic or technical tasting notes and I feel like I’m doing a lousy job compared to them. At the end of the day though, I think some teas are inspiring and deserve more attention and elaborate descriptions, and others are just like “Yeah, tastes like x,y,z. Ok Bye.”. Also, when you start trying too hard in your reviews, I believe other people can tell it’s not natural – at least I can – and it kind of ruins it, ya know? Someone likes my tasting notes, yay! :)

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. :)
