After losing my laptop and a very good reading magazine, I gave up having an enjoyable evening and brewed this to try and warm me. I did not have high hopes as it did not smell very appealing but low and behold this tea surprised me.

First with my cup sparkling. That was lovely to see. Second with the taste. I did not find myself having to adjust it at all. The little sugar balls that come with it do a fine job of making it sweet and the rest goes down like a pleasant black tea should. I will admit it doesn’t wow my britches off but for a night like this when a chinook is in full swing and the stars are out it makes me feel comfort. That’s usually what I ask for in a tea. There will be a tin on my shelf of this… Just in case another night proves miserable or a chinook decides to rattle the trees.

Bio

I’m 24 years old and female. I used to be in university as a History Major but I gave it up to be a Laboratory Technician at a coal mine. My days are long and switch to nights many a time but I always bring 3 bags of tea with me to enjoy and have fun with.

When I’m not breaking my back over coal I spend my time in my room with my two cats playing video games until the sun comes up and watching a variety of movies, most of which are Disney or are animated in some way.

When it comes to tea, I have a fierce loyalty to DAVIDsTEA as they treated me right and garnered my respect. For the most part I am focusing on them but I take other Canadian Tea companies into mind and hopefully can expand my cupboard with them.

I currently have no tea rating guides but if I indicate I bought a Tin or will store a Tin constantly on my shelf, it usually means I will be hopelessly devoted to it.

My other interests include collection Starbucks cups, listening to Deadmau5, and watching far too many BBC shows.
