Happy Mothers day!!
I had this with pancakes and chocolate milk. A mocha tea chino! (no dashes because of formatting complications)
I prefer the coffee version I made Mum, to be honest, but I would rather not push the allergy factor!
Anyhow… it was a good day overall. Much better than yesterday, for reasons I don’t wanna get into. Let’s just say it was depressing.
Whatevs. Night all :)

Happy Mothers day!!
Backlog! Will this tea never end! I love how robust and satisfying this is, but I also don’t want it to go stale and I’ve had it for ages now…
Ctc goes a long way. Hmph.
At my friend Tim and Joannes house… I gave them a kettle that I didn’t want/need and this is what we christened it with.
I wanted something plain so that I could tell if it had been rinsed properly, not to mention I’m a tad unwell, but mostly better. Overall… its still a hair plasticky (even though it’s a stainless steel contraption)
There seems to be alot of sadness going around Steepster today, so I’m sending out my best hug vibes. Smile! Even if only because you are drinking a cuppa tea :)
Now that I’m out of the Queen, I’ve been drinking this on its own. Not terrible.
Still about 60g left, but somehow the leaves get used up faster than I expected. They aren’t ctc, but cut up into tiny little squares. Does it take up more room that way? I’d have thought less!
So for today’s cup I steeped 3min 20sec and added chocolate syrup. Maybe I should have added an extra thirty seconds because the overall tea flavor was a little weak. I prefer stout, hardy teas with alot of malt. I find that factor to be hit and miss with blacks. Am I doing something different or are my buds off? Hmmm.
A friend gave me 100g of this and I found that it’s a solid black tea with no frills. Great! for blending muahahahaaaaa.
So I decided to start off with mixing a smidge of this and some Lapsang Souchong, and a pinch of Queen Catherine. Guess what? it tastes just like Queen Catherine! SCORE!! even got a decent second steep outta the leaves.
This tea and I, will have some good times :)
I tried this tea in a sampler that the Victorian Trading Company sent me with my tea party kit. I fell in love with this tea instantly…I would have not believed I’d love the taste of rose as much as I love how roses smell. The rose tea accompanied nicely with some brunch dishes that I served at my tea party. I highly recommend this floral black Ceylon tea
