Admittedly, I bought this tea for the tin – Beatrix Potter characters, plus it was on sale! How could I pass that up?

I’ve made this tea 4 or 5 times now, and it actually stands out from the dozen or so other bagged black teas I have in my pantry. My tea-tasting isn’t very well honed yet, but it tastes… zingier, I guess? Good with or without milk. I won’t be running out of this anytime soon, but when I do, I think I’ll be buying it again.

Boiling 4 min, 30 sec

I grew up in New Jersey drinking Celestial Seasonings, and now I live in England, where I developed a taste for a good builder’s brew. Sometime in 2012 I bought my first loose teas, and my collection has since spiraled out of control. Still quite a novice, due to not drinking enough tea to keep pace with the amount I keep buying.

Some things I’m pretty sure I do like:
- most florals (jasmine, orange blossom, osmanthus, etc)
- buttery, vegetal greens
- malty blacks (usually with milk & sugar)
- oolongs that aren’t too heavily roasted

Not really feeling the flavored teas lately, for whatever reason.

All tasting notes use unfiltered hard tap water, unless otherwise specified.

No real method to my numerical ratings yet, but we’ll see what develops. So far I’ve only given ratings of 90 or higher if I actually get excited while drinking the tea.
