drank English Breakfast by Art of Tea
450 tasting notes

This note is going to be awful, because I feel awful at the moment. I have another massive canker sore, and it’s burning my mouth with a vengeance that I thought only possible by the devil himself. The whole right side of my face is hurting, and the glands on the right side of my throat are swollen. I didn’t even bring any tea to work because I knew attempting to drink anything hot would be futile. I had a cup of this with breakfast and could barely taste anything. Mild floral notes, but honestly, I can’t be asked to remember anything at all. I’m going to pick up some origel just now, because I honestly don’t think I’ll survive at work.

Warm salt water works wonders, and swishing with Pepto Bismol and spitting it out can coat it and soothe it some. I really hate those things!

I’m sorry. This really sucks. I hope you feel better soon!

Ugh, I hate those! Hope you feel better soon.

Thanks so much, all of you. It feels so good to know that people care about my poor stupid mouth, especially because it means less tea! ashmanra, I do the salt water thing, and will try the pepto as well. I now have origel, so am comfortably numb.

Bio

Well, it’s been slightly over six months since I’ve joined steepster, and I can’t say enough wonderful things about this community. Like many of you, I began my foray into the world of loose-leaf tea by discovering David’s Tea, and although I’ve ventured out and have discovered many other companies that I’m extremely fond of, there are still many of David’s teas that I hold close to my heart and I will always appreciate it as a starting point for my journey.

As for my preferences, I tend to prefer bold black tea, flavoured and unflavoured alike, and I almost always take my blacks with cream and sugar. This isn’t to say that I don’t enjoy a good, flavoured white though, and I’m slowly making my way through the incredibly confusing world of oolongs and greens. I am also not a fan of rooibos, although I am starting to suspect green rooibos may be ok, but you know how it is: when you’ve decided you detest a certain ingredient, you’ll notice it everywhere—perhaps even where it doesn’t exist!

Things other than tea: I’m engaged to be married to my best friend, and feel like the richest woman on the planet because of it. I am also a veracious reader, and I also happen to have an obsession with fragrances, and have amassed quite a collection, although it pales in comparison to some collections out there! As a result of this obsession, I also follow several fragrance blogs, and am always up for a chat about scent. I’m also almost completely blind, and this does indeed mean that I come complete with a guide dog, who unlike me, hales from the sunny California campus of Guide dogs for the Blind. I think I’ve rambled on long enough, but if there’s anything you’d like to know or if you just feel like chatting to someone, please don’t hesitate to send me a message.
