Christmas present from the sister-in-law.

This tea smells EXACTLY like that tub of Betty Crocker vanilla icing. That sickly sweet smelling icing. You know the stuff your boyfriends and husbands would probably sit and eat in a whole sitting straight from the tub… or is that just mine?

This tea does well with added sugar and cream/milk. On it’s own it’s pretty lost. The smell is what I can’t get over. For TJ pricing, I would probably buy this again. I’ve walked by people with this tea in my hand and have had them come up to me and ask me what it is… so I guess it truly smells good.

Preparation
Boiling 4 min, 45 sec

I love when my friends and family give me tea gifts cause even though most of them know nothing about tea, they show how much they care :-)

Bio

My passion for tea started at a very young age, thanks to my grandmothers beautiful china tea cup collection. I use to brew Tetley’s or whatever version of Orange Pekoe she had in the cupboard and pick out my favourite tea cup to use. It wasn’t until I was in my late teens that I really started to develop a passion for it. My town had the Urban Tea Merchant and it was there I was exposed to high tea and the very fancy Mariage Freres brand. When they switched over to The O Dor, my girlfriend and I found salvation in going for a lovely cup of tea and decompress with some tea scones.

It has since become an obsession. I have a tea cupboard, filled with a very large variety of teas. I also use the Breville Tea Maker to make my tea. I favour black teas, with a close second being North African Mint Green Tea. Because I have the luxury of working from home, I get to enjoy a wonderful cup of tea every morning, and the journey resets daily.
