Ka-blammo!!!!!!!!!!

If you’ve always wondered what a Lavender-flavoured punch in the face smells like, then smell this tea. But buckle yourself in first.

This was pretty insanely overpowering and while I can’t say I’m a hater for lavender, this was really really intense. Once you make the tea it was much more subdued, thankfully. I think I messed this up a bit though, I used lukewarm water instead of boiling. So I need to try this again. But on first taste, this is not my favourite of the Upton Earl Grey sampler pack. I like the other ones (eg Earl Grey Creme Vanilla) much better.

Hello fellow tea nerds!

I’m Canadian and my parents are South African, plus I lived in England and Australia as a kid… so I’m rockin some pretty mad British Empire vibe and thus I’ve been a tea fan for quite some time. I am now totally hooked on loose-leaf. It’s super fun to try a bazillion new kinds of tea and choose the right one for a given moment in a day.

My favourite teas are well balanced, mild, maybe fruity/citrusy or with interesting flavours (eg: silk oolongs, grapefruit green rooibos, jasmine silver needle white tea, melon white tea). I also like a solid malty British or other bold style black teas with some oomph (eg: Yunnan Golden Tips, PG Tips).

Let’s nerd out together about why tea is so friggin’ epic!
