SO MY BUDDY STARFISHEY SENT ME SOME TEAS! And I added them to my cupboard and you KNOW WHAT? I HAVE EXACTLY 52 TEAS. In my cupboard. I think that calls for a 52teas tea tasting!

So she sent me the famous cinnamon roll honeybush. I’m actually really not a fan of rooibos by itself, but I do love it mixed into other things! I HAD PRETTY HIGH EXPECTATIONS FOR THIS TEA I tell ya what, everyone is just raving. I followed her suggestion and steeped it a little less than normal and HMMM I don’t think I did it long enough, the flavor wasn’t very strong. There’s definitely a creamy sweet aftertaste there but I’M JUST NOT QUITE THERE YET. Will give this another go!

SUPER CASUAL TEA AFICIONADO!
my tastes are not refined.

i tend to steep teas too long and give a lot of high ratings and get ridiculously excited over things; i apologize for my excessive use of caps but TEA IS EXCITING okay!

greens & oolongs are my favorite!
also like sweet black teas!
and occasional light fruity teas!

i’d love to do a tea trade with you!
