I received a package in the mail from Janelle today! Even though I have a strict no caffeine after work policy, I had to try one of the teas. This is the one I made first, but that was an accident, I wanted to try Ruby Pie first, but grabbed this one. This definitely smells like Irish cream, but I’m not getting it in the taste. It was also quite bitter sans sweetener, but that could be because I over-steeped it, like always. With sweetener added, the bitterness was gone. I doubt the lack of flavour is due to over-steeping as many other reviews point this out as well. An ok tea, but I don’t think I will order this, so glad I got to try it! Thanks Janelle!

Bio

I didn’t drink a lot of tea growing up, just the red rose my nana would make me with about 3 teaspoons of sugar added to it. I started getting into loose leaf tea about a decade ago when I visited our local tea house and tried Rooibos for the first time, though I only drank it on occasion. I didn’t get serious about it until David’s tea came to town. I was on a diet and wanted something I could drink without sugar that had a lot of flavours to choose from.

I prefer black teas, but oolong and green come in a close second. White and guayusa are in the middle, while mate, rooibos and herbals are at the bottom of my list.

Likes: banana, jasmine, pumpkin, lychee, blueberry, chocolate
Dislikes: orange, ginger, rose, hibiscus, butterscotch, honeybush

My non-tea related interests are music, camping, poker, softball, snowboarding, biology and animals. I have 2 dogs and they are my whole life.

Location
