Oh my, Angrboda! What a great big huge order you just put in there with Nothing But Tea!

Erm… yes. I had reached the point where I was allowed to buy the lemon oolong and the orange pu-erh that I wanted and erm… well… things got ever so slightly out of control. But they’re just samples! It’s just… there’s an awful lot of them.

Celebrating (ahem) that with the decupboarding with the other half of one my existing samples. Again I find myself wishing I’d done the whole thing in one go at first, because I really think I would have got a lot more out of it that way than I am with this half-sample business.

As it is it’s nice, sweet and buttery. Not too green tasting and not too water-y in flavour. But it might have had a little more oomph to it if I’d used the double amount of leaf. That new water to leaves ratio pattern that I’ve got going on here is really messing with my old favourites! What I thought was GOOD may only have been good. (On the other hand, teas I found bad may have really been truly abysmal, so it’s not a total loss. I must have saved myself some unpleasantness on that front)

It’s been ages since I had TGY though. It’s about time, and I feel like it’s an old friend in my cup, even if it’s not my favourite vendor. I think I’ll take it with me out on the balcony and read some more. It’s warm enough to be nice out there today when I have a blanket.

I find tea buying often gets out of control


sample sizes are definitely a double-edged sword, yes. And when they offer sample sets with a sample of EVERYTHING in a given category (in this case all their blacks)… oh dear oh dear oh dear!
