I’m not a huge Earl Grey fan, and this sort of tasted like a more sophisticated version of Earl Grey.

It’s mild, but strangely addicting. It sort of reminds me of rice pudding.

The first couple of cups were good, but somewhere along the way it started tasting like cough-syrup to me. I’m not sure what happened :(

This is better than some of the other black currant teas I’ve tried. It’s still not as awesome as the one I found in Vancouver, BC.

Mine wasn’t from Hina’s but I’m pretty sure it was the same one. It’s the most richly vanilla flavored tea I’ve found.

Bio

I became a fan of tea in 2001 when I started frequenting Savoure in Eugene, OR. It has since closed, and I mourn it.

While visiting France, I did not buy any souvenirs, but I did manage to spend a small fortune at Mariage Frères. Me and my 500g of Marco Polo are very happy together, thank you.

My favorites are flavored black teas, and I like them with milk and sugar. That is not to say that I don’t also enjoy a good green, oolong, or rooibos, especially when they’re high quality. I’m not a huge fan of white, but sometimes one comes along that rocks my tastebuds. I like herbal/tisanes, but I confess that in my head I don’t completely consider them tea, and I usually only dig them out if I’m sick.
