This is my last cup of this and I am going to savour the HELL out of it.

I can tell it’s starting to get on in age, and that’s entirely my fault for delaying the inevitable. It’s taken away much of the fruityness I remember.

It’s overall lighter and greener and fruitier than The O Dor’s, which is considerably sharper and more “black”. This is why Life in Teacup’s is still my favourite, and I have plans on buying more. Probably once I run out of The O Dor’s, though, as I’ve been cutting back on my Tea Expenses so I don’t bury myself.

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 or with the full gongfu set. 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 I tend not to work on them as a whole, but rather add notes as I sip without rereading what I’ve already typed.

I take my tea straight, with the exception of chais (or matcha); very rarely, I’ll sweeten things the Russian way. I also have a soft spot for earl greys.

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

And I’m a Doctor Who fanatic (Jon Pertwee, if you were wondering).
