This may very well have been one of the best bring-to-work choices I’ve made in a really long time. I was a bit hesitant, because I typically bring flavoured teas to work, and although EGC is probably technically considered flavoured, it doesn’t necessarily feel that way, but I took my chances.

So so much lovely vanilla in my cup, followed up by a perfectly smooth hint of bergamot. It almost feels as though the bergamot is even more muted in my timolino than it is in a typical cup, and I’m not sure why that is-perhaps because tea doesn’t steep nearly as thoroughly in the timolino? Either way, great, great decision. But now my stomach feels a bit off (unrelated to the tea) but I’m also hungry. What an odd combination of sensations.

I find that I can’t smell it when its in a timolino, so it loses some of the flavour that way. My solution is to brew 2 timo’s at once (to save time), and then just pour 6 oz at a time into a cup for my sipping pleasure. Then I’m good for 2 hours or so!

It’s funny but I don’t count EG as flavoured either, for some reason. Maybe because it’s just a staple as far as teas go? People who don’t drink tea know about EG. But I keep my EG’s with my unflavoured blacks.

Ha-so it isn’t only me! Yeah, perhaps it’s because it’s more commonly known, and is also a staple breakfast tea. And that’s great that you do two timos at once!

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.
