Oh YUM!
I just finished a large cup of this mixed with a few delicious things I will tell you about. I tend to drink this tea bare, or with the spiced butter recipe mentioned previously on here (Faith) and a little cream (so indulgent and delicious!)
Dry: Beautiful combination of leaves and such fine coconut. Smells like buttery-rummy-deliciousness. Such large vanilla bean pieces! I’m impressed!
Liquor: Creamy coconutty vanilla with rum. Slightly astringent, but almost not even noticeable (Yay!) Smell is deliciously Malibu rum.
The smell of the mug after drinking this tea bare is fantastic! (Always a plus for me.. I like to really appreciate the layers of smells that my tongue could perhaps not decipher (yet?))

Very happy I went with this one. Definitely a weekly tea. Maybe twice a week.

Bio

I am very excited to delve into as many different types of tea as possible… so this should be interesting. I am really looking forwards to tasting all the wide array of flavours that can come from pure tea leaves.

Currently, I am having a love affair with oolongs. Mostly green, though I am stretching out into more oxidized oolongs. Black teas are also in my love fest as they can be so surprising sometimes (I used to drink bagged red rose x.x)
I would really love to get to know green tea a lot more and white tea.. all tea to be honest. I want to know them all.

Tea rating system:

0-50: Do people actually enjoy this?
50-60: Slight improvement, not recommendable.
60-70: Alright, though easily forgettable.
70-80: Good flavour, though not a ‘go to’ tea.
80-90: Great tea – complex and memorable.
90-100: Extremely delicious and complex teas that leave me craving more.

On top of tea, I have a love for music. Generally all music, though I am partial to indie rock/folk/pop/electronic. Follow me if you also enjoy indie music and would like to trade some artists!

I’m always open to new tea and music suggestions. Happy tea drinking to you all.
