This’ the last of this! Due to the fact that I think it makes an excellent breakfast tea, chances are I will probably purchase it a third time. I practically have a tin specifically for it.

But I may also branch out and (gasp) use the tin for a different tea. My number of empty tins now equals the number of teas I have still in the bags they came in (the roll-down close ones; can’t be good for them, I don’t see them preventing much air exposure); two from Tealicious, two from Granville, one from Teaopia, one from Murchie’s, one from Great Wall.

Although some of the empty tins are A&D’s. And I just don’t have the heart to peal off the stickers from those yet. If they came off more easily, I would, but they’re stuck on there pretty good. They’d just tear.

I change icons often, apologies. On that note, they are usually Doctor Who related (so no, that is not me pictured in the icon, it is most likely one of the Doctors).

A tea-drinking transgendered Canadian, currently in the third year of university, majoring in geology (yes, “rocks and things”). I take most of my tea made straight into a mug, although occasionally if I’m not in a hurry (this isn’t often), I’ll have time to sit down with a pot. It’s the highlight of a good day if I have time for a pot.

My notes and reviews will often sound dis-jointed, repetitive and confused, as usually I don’t work on them as a whole, but rather add notes as I sip without rereading what I’ve already typed.

On most occasions I won’t take my tea with anything (I reserve milk for chai). Occasionally agave nectar if I want to test to see if it’ll smooth it out. Chais I will make with either the nectar or honey. Although on occasion I will sweeten unflavoured blacks the Russian way—with jam or jelly. Occasionally I will take it instead with a slice of a citrus fruit. Normally orange, occasionally lemon if I have any on hand.

I prefer Earl Greys.

Lastly, I keep a teatra.de blog for reviewing and rambling about tea books/publications.

Also, I am a Doctor Who fanatic. As one may have noticed by my icons. For the record, my favourite Doctor is number three, Jon Pertwee.
