I needed a bit of a pick me up this afternoon, feeling kind of in the doldrums. This definitely seemed to do the trick.

It is a wonderful smelling tea – did you ever have oranges and stick cloves into them during the holiday season? So festive and bright! I really like the orange here, it reminds me of a satsuma mandarin. There is a bit of clove and cinnamon but is more subdued. Again I am thinking this is a black ceylon which actually works quite well in this combination. I do feel much more cheerful already!

Bio

My profile pic is of a pink dahlia at Golden Gate Park.

Hobbies include: tea, making art, animals, vegan things, buddhism, nature, creativity, books, writing, cooking, meditation, yoga.

I am a fan of many different teas but my favorites are blacks and oolongs, chai, also like darjeeling and pu-erh. I’n always learning and expanding my horizons!

Dislikes include: bergamot, jasmine, highly tannic or bitter teas, overly judgmental and bitter people. :)

Live in San Francisco, I’m a SINK (single income, no kids) and love the urban life, but traveling out to the middle of nowhere is always fun too.
