90

Sad, tragic sipdown (199/201)…

Well, I guess I’m happy this is the tea that puts me under 200 again, but I’m heartbroken because my love affair with this blend has reached a horrible end for all parties; kind of like the conclusion of The Great Gatbsy (I just finished rereading the book, so I have Gatsby Brain right now). My wife Tropicalia caught me cheating with Pink Passion fruit and had the tisane brutally ended in a pool of hot, boiling water…

Oh, and I guess sorry for any Gatsby spoilers, there…

Anyway, thanks Aimee Popovacki for introducing me with this one. It’s been on my shopping list since trying it, so I’ll be sure to keep a good eye out.

I don’t think you can worry about spoilers on a book that has been around since 1925 :P.

OMGsrsly

What VariaTEA said! :D Although I avoided the book in high school. And the movie. I’m not sure how I managed that.

It was required reading for my advanced English course in Grade 12, and I just absolutely loved it. I adored the movie too, despite it not getting great reviews (I own it, actually; like I actually payed for it because I liked it that much) – I thought the casting was perfect and they captured the setting and all the very detailed and complex symbolism perfectly (also, they didn’t cut any important plot at all).

OMGsrsly

I, umm, can’t stand Robert Redford OR Mia Farrow. Made it maybe 10 minutes in. The newer films might be better, but that’s what I had to work with!

So I have a fair bit of this left, and I’ve kind of fallen out of love with it, I much prefer Pink Dragonfruit from Tealish. Do you want the rest of mine?

Roswell Strange

Oh sweet merciful Zeus, yes! Except, I can’t return the favour right now unfortunately – and wouldn’t want to be a trouble or cause you unnecessary shipping costs.

Oh please, I have 400+ teas in my cupboard, do you think I really need more samples? XD Have a stroll through my cupboard, pick out some more to try, if you like. Hate to only send one tea!

Hello;

My name is Kelly. I’m a twenty something tea drinker and reviewer living in Saskatchewan, Canada. I started drinking loose leaf fairly casually three(ish) years ago, and at some point between then and now that ‘fun little hobby’ turned into a serious obsession.

You know you’ve got it bad when you get your hobby tattooed to your arm.

Currently, I’m in the process of getting certified as a Tea Sommelier; if you’re interested in hearing more about that give me a shout because I’ve found the process to be really informative as well as quiet fun!

Typically I drink flavoured blends more that straight but one of my mini goals 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 and as of late oolongs 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 straight 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, Petrichor

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

I also have a severe allergy to mushrooms; as such I do not drink Kombucha teas (just to be on the safe side)!

Currently exploring/looking to try: Straight Pu’Erh or Dark/Roasted Oolong, Sweet Potato flavoured blends, and anything with Goji berries

I’ve got four Tea Pets:

Two Pixiu Dragons named Zak and Wheezie, a monkey named Enzo, and a carp named Gyarados. If you see me writing about sharing tea with any of them that’s what I’m talking about ;)

I also have one real life pet:

A skinny pig hairless guinea pig named Eilert, after Henrik Ibsen’s play Hedda Gabler. He’s pretty chill, but a greedy little fella who’ll rip food right out of your hands. Sometimes he joins me for tea time even though he never gets to participate.
