I’ve been sipping this all day as I do chores and make tea packages for my prof and for a very good friend who is new to tea… or.. well.. new to good loose leaf tea (I’m proud to say he drinks bagged green tea at least!)

ANNNYYWAYS.

I’m in my third steep now, initial flavours tasted like currant and raspberry with a hint of milk oolong. There is a subtle tartness to this tea I find, this steep more so than others. Also a little bit of vanilla shows up.

I like it, but I need more time with it. I’m holding off my rating until that time.

PS.. It doesn’t snow much here really. Maybe 1-2 days per year. Now that it’s the first day of spring- it’s snowing. Or trying hard to. YAYYY! (I do love snow, but what random timing!)

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.
