drank Melon Oolong by Lupicia
451 tasting notes

Whoa. I’m running dangerously low on my supply of this, and I don’t go to California until July, so I won’t really be able to replenish it until then. I could technically order online, but really want to savour the in-store sniff and huff experience, and then subsequently buy like everything in sight. What’s also really neat is that Mr. Keychange’s mother was over the other night, and I served her this tea. She remarked, in her very british way, that it was “an exceptional melon tea” and of course you know I sent her home with some. I swear, loving tea is like a religion—once you “discover” it, you want to share it with everyone. I love that aspect of it so much. That I really take pleasure in sharing tea with other people. So many other hobbies can be laced with competition and jealousy and self-doubt, but not tea, not tea!

Heading to Toronto for the rest of the long weekend. have a great weekend, everyone!

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.
