drank Minty Cow by Della Terra Teas
450 tasting notes

Well, I’ll be damned. One of the ladies here at work stopped at Timmys on her way back from somewhere and picked me up a bagel. I can’t say it paired perfectly with this tea, but this tea was wonderful nonetheless. Creamy, minty, and underpinned by a light chocolate. I’m nearly out of my stash for this one as well, and it’ll likely make an appearance when I put in my next dellaterra order. it’s funny: I seem to have come up with a few tea rules for myself, and one of the loose ones seems to be that I only take flavoured tea to work in my timolino. I find that the vessel I’m drinking from makes a difference and teas with strong flavour seem to do better in the timolino than unflavoured ones, so I’m really glad I have a sufficient dellaterra stash to keep me supplied.

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.
