Sadly this timolino full used up the last of the leaf I brought with me for this blend – though thankfully I still have lots at home to enjoy.

And also sadly, my sore tooth is acting up again…

Anyway, steeping parameters were 2 tsp. of leaf in the 12 oz. timolino in boiling water for four minutes. I also added in a splash of milk.

This smells lovely, and tastes lovelier! Gentle chai spices, creamy pumpkin flavour, and sweet notes of honey, caramel, and brown sugar. I only wish it would cool down just a little faster.

I’m also a little frustrated, albeit with myself. I’ve had some serious cravings for Genmaicha the last day or so, and despite having five variations at home, I decided not to bring any of them. Shame on me.

Yum, I can’t wait to try this next fall. I went a little crazy with pumpkin anything this past season and this was before I was crazy about tea.

Me too! I have been craving another cup of Nina’s Japon but I don’t want to waste the leaf so I am refusing to have any until I can taste again.

Hello;

My name is Kelly. I’m a nearly twenty tea drinker and reviewer living in Saskatchablah, Canada. I started drinking loose leaf fairly casually a little over a year ago, and at some point between then and now that ‘fun little hobby’ turned into a serious, serious obsession.

Typically I drink flavoured blends more that straight but one of my mini goals this year is to get that ratio to a more 50/50 level. I do a daily cold brew, and have at least (but usually a lot more) two hot cups of tea every day. Naturally I lean towards black or white blends, but I WILL drink everything; the last half year or so I’ve been challenging myself by further exploring Oolong and Pu’Erh which are the tea types I know the least about overall.

My default for preparation is Western Style with zero additives (the exception being matcha which I drink in milk with no additives); so unless I mention otherwise you can assume that’s how I’ve prepared my tea!

Favourite flavours/ingredients: Pear, Lychee, Cranberry, Cream, Melon, Pineapple, Malt, Roasty

Least favourite flavours/ingredients:
Lemongrass, ginger/“Chai” in general, raisins, overly vegetal, chamomile

I also have a severe allergy to mushrooms; as such I do not drink Kombucha teas!

Currently exploring/looking to try: Straight Pu’Erh or Dark/Roasted Oolong, Sweet Potato flavoured blends.

Location
