Oh man, so the quest to try the weirdest/most ill advised tea pop today definitely went well. I had this one in mind when I went into the store and it’s what the sales associate suggested anyway so I went with this one.

Man does Lapsang stink; she opened the tin up to make it and the whole time all I could think was “I fucked up!”. And of course, if we’re gonna do a tea pop might as well do it “properly” so there was Agave in this too. She agreed this was/is the weirdest one she’s ever made for someone. If nothing else I felt like we both got a good story out of the experience.

I will say this; it was bad but not as bad as I expected it to be. It was kinda like drinking carbonated bacon or tobacco. Which is a very weird sensation. I think it should be obvious I didn’t finish it; but I did drink more than half of it and that seems like an accomplishment to me!

I felt a wee bit nauseous after it, but I think it was still worth it just to say I’d done it!

Flavors: Ash, Smoke, Tobacco

Carbonated bacon, huh? crosses that off the list

Roswell Strange

Yeah; don’t do it. I don’t recommend this to anyone.

You are a brave soul! I don’t think I ever expected to see the phrase “carbonated bacon” anywhere…

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.
