This episode of Sniff ‘n’ Sip brought to you by…Lemon Pledge. For that fresh, lemony scent throughout your home.

This was my first Earl Grey. And a very fine first it was, indeed. Fragrance, dry: Basically, I wanted to strap the packet onto my nose like a horse’s feed bag. Goodness, me, does this smell good. So refreshing. Fragrance, steeped: More of the same, really; I almost burned my nose. Oops.

Flavour: Just as good as the fragrance and exactly as expected. No false advertising here!

Verdict: More, please. I have too much tea to justify buying this right now, but it’s definitely been added to the shopping list.

2012.10.07: I hear people like to understand other people’s ratings, so here’s a loose guide:

01-29: Dear God, why.
30-49: I’ll finish this cup, I guess, but no more.
50-59: Meh.
60-69: Decent. Maybe I can blend it with something else and make it better.
70-79: Heeey, this is quite good!
80-89: I love it, but I’m not in love with it.
90-100: Permanently resident in my Happy Place.


Update: I have steeped, and it was good. =] Still a tea-ophyte, though.


This is a tea site, so I feel like “well, I’m Indian” should be enough of an introduction. Because, I mean, it’s kind of in my genes, right? But the fact of the matter is that I’m an absolute tea-ophyte.

I’ve just discovered a world beyond Celestial Seasonings. I’ve just discovered “sachets” instead of “normal” tea bags and bought my first loose tea sampler. I don’t get the whole water temperature and steep time thing yet, nor that if I want to get a yixiang tea pot, I’d need one for each type of tea. I have this infuser ball thing, but I haven’t used it yet.

Don’t cringe, but right now I’m still just boiling water and pouring it over a teabag, adding some sugar, and drinking a nice, hot cuppa. I’d like to learn more, I think, and I’d like to train my palate. I figure participating in this community is the best way to do that.

So ya. Hi!
