Yay! Christmas tea! This is part of the DavidsTea tiny tins set (with those super adorable little tins!)

I thought I’d start with this because the pomegranates smelled SO GOOD. Steeped, it still smells strongly of pomegranates, but I can also smell the hibiscus. The tea has a very pretty rose tint, but the hibiscus actually doesn’t overwhelm the tea at all. It’s very nice. It’s slightly tart, yet fruity and yum!!! I don’t really know if I can taste the white tea though – I wonder what this would taste just as an herbal blend? Someday I really need to try white tea on its own just to get an idea of what it’s like!

This is the first time I remembered to use the lid on my steeper too, so… good job me? I guess it’ll be neat (in a tea-geek sorta way) to see if there’s a big difference with the lid on vs using a tea ball in a mug.

I think I have enough left for 1 or 2 more cups – it won’t last long!

Cool! They’ll totally be great for samples!

Ozli

Oh yeah, definitely!

Cavocorax

Even better – I’m going to take these tins with me when I eventually (no wait… TOO SOON) go back to work. Then I can have my own mini tea wall and be the envy of… well, someone!

Ozli

That would be so awesome! (TOO SOON! Heeee!)

Bio

Tea: I just started drinking loose tea in the fall of 2012, and once I started I had to get more and more and try ALL THE TEAS. Joining Steepster made this worse/easier.

So far it seems that I prefer unflavoured black teas, although I still drink a few that are flavoured each day too. Oolongs, greens, puerhs and white teas are all very good, but I just don’t crave them as often.

Yet.

Me: Ok. Random things. I like animals, I have a baby girl and a devoted bf, and … I’m a geek. I like Lord of the Rings, Sherlock, Doctor Who, Game of Thrones, Supernatural, pen&paper RPG’s, online RPG’s, video games, silly internet memes, puzzles and a bunch of others things! I taught myself to knit and I’m considering crochet but I need to make time for all these things!

Ratings:
