drank Happy Birthday by THEODOR
338 tasting notes

Today is the first day of December and I was so excited when I opened the first little compartment of my THEODOR Laponic December Advent Calendar!!! I’ve been waiting for today for a month!!!

And the excitement completely died down when I found this tea and brewed it… it is possibly the worst infusion I have ever had. It is basically a concoction of what I hate most! Hibiscus, blackberry leaves, licorice-like flavour (which probably came from fennel seeds) and some odd fruity notes. HORRIBLE HORRIBLE HORRIBLE!!! It tastes extremely weird in my opinion – it is slightly tart and mostly sweet – with a fairly strong earthy, herbal aftertaste. I am just so sad that they start the calendar with this!!!!! Let’s hope there’s a more pleasant surprise tomorrow…

Flavors: Absinthe, Apple, Fruity, Ginger, Herbaceous, Hibiscus, Licorice

Boiling 4 min, 15 sec

A devilish girl who lives up to the post-80s youth stereotype – hedonistic, frivolous and rebellious – except I love traditional afternoon tea rather than a quick caffeine fix at Starbucks.

I make a living off others’ criminal activities. It’s a busy job and I really wish I could retire, so I can become a full-time afternoon tea connoisseur instead. :j

I love any tea that has nice scent, great flavour and lovely packaging. My current top favourite brands are Mariage Freres, T2, and THE O DOR. ;)

I am now practising mindfulness as a way of living. I decide to use tea tasting as a means to meditate in my daily life. My tasting notes here will therefore be my meditation notes :)

I’ve got no time to update my Pinterest and blog since I became a mom. Nevertheless, if you feel curious, you are most welcomed to visit these abandoned pages:
