So, having more of this today. I’m feeling a bit chilly and decided to have some tea. I was going to have some of The Skinny, but in a last minute decision, decided on this. I decided that The Skinny was much better suited as a follow up to tonight’s pending dinner of fish n chips. I can’t handle that much grease, so hopefully The Skinny will be helpful there.

Today’s brews were with a fair amount of milk and brown sugar, and this is a pleasing and comforting tea as prepared this way, however I don’t taste much of the tea. But I had some milk in a separate container I needed to clear out so I could use my little water bottle again for work. Anyhow, it is still comforting this way. I still aim to try it sans milk and see what it is like that way. I have a little of this left…just a serving or two (plus multiple brews).

I generally like a lot of tea. I do find I have a preference for flavored over unflavoured, but I do love a good straight tea as well.

Likes are too hard, since there are a lot. Dislikes are easier, so here they are…

Hibiscus. Blech. I can tolerate a little, depending on the brew, like Berry Good from Davids and Ruby Pie from Butiki…but in general, it’s too tart and too strong for me.

Licorice. Anything that remotely resembles licorice is out too, so that includes fennel and anise. Yuck, yuck, yuck.

Florals. I’m cool with petals in the tea to make them look pretty (except rose), and I’m cool with teas like oolongs having a floral note, but strong florals can give me migraines. Rose and jasmine are the biggest offenders. This is one where it can vary on the blend, as I can handle Teavivre’s Peach Jasmine Dragon Pearl tea because there is very little jasmine actually detectable in it.

Rooibos is hit or miss. I can do some, but not others. I handle green better than red, and honeybush better than rooibos.

My ratings don’t have a particular scale or method, and may on occasion contradict themselves, but I’m honestly not fussed about that. Sometimes I don’t even rate at all.

Um, I have an extensive wishlist. It is both a list of things I want to get again, and things I want to try. If you are sending me something, and you want to know which is which, I’ll tell you via PM.

Yes, I do trades…usually on request though. See something you want to try in my cupboard? Just shoot me a message and I’ll see what I can do!

Uh, guess that’s it.
