Mmm late night strawberry pancakes. Thank you Kittenna for this sample.
The smell of the dry leaves is surely strawberry, and maybe a tiny bit of starchy something? If I stretch it.
The taste? Well.. Wow. I went to take a sip and I thought I was biting into a strawberry. The image of a big, juicy strawberry flashed in my mind. The taste is creamy buttermilkish/buttery something smothered in freshly made strawberry reduction. There is also a slight tartness to the strawberry.. which made me think of cranberry.
The green tea, from what I can somewhat taste.. is nice. Not a shoddy green tea (not that I am an expert).

Overall, this tea is pretty good. I enjoy the strawberry syrup taste that has slight creamy buttery notes.. though I am missing the really starchy pancake delightfulness that I was looking for. A delightful cup all the same =)

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.
