Drank some of this earlier with breakfast. I either put too much milk or too few leaves because it was super weak and unsatisfying. Not that this is surprisingly lately. I am perpetually dissatisfied. With tea :(

I realize it must sound mental when I say stuff like that, the former 5 cup a day lady not being able to stomach even a cup a day half the time, or even one per week, so I will just come right out with it….
I’m about 14 weeks preggers and the baby is probably a demon that has turned me off my beloved tea. I kid, well about the demon part. Obviously!!

It’s an incredibly ironic forehead slapping twist of fate, though. I’ve stocked up on so much tea over the last few months (right up until about 2 months ago when I had the harsh realization that the smell of my flavoured teas was turning my stomach and totally repelling me)… Now I have zero urge to drink it.
Even now when I have a random cup it’s more out of a sense of obligation than an actual enjoyable experience. So sad!!! I hope it comes back six months from now!!!

I’m sticking to the unflavoured or mildly flavoured teas at this point, that’s for sure!!

Right now all I want to drink is chocolate milk and apple juice, two things I maybe had two-three times a year previously.

Hello!

I love tea. I love my baby daughter, my husband, my dog Wally, Netflix, shopping, and tea. Some other stuff too, but these are the most important!

Some favourites -

Butiki teas in general, I love how the flavours are subtle and not fake tasting and don’t overwhelm the tea base. Trust that I will be dramatically mourning the loss of this company!

Harney and Sons, Teavivre, Whispering Pines and Mariage Freres are some more tea companies I appreciate. Along with Davidstea as it was the ‘gateway drug’ to my tea addiction. Though I’m mostly over it now, I’ve definitely moved on from the artificially flavoured teas and am trying more quality straight teas!

My ultimate goal is to try as many French teas as possible – and to finally find a source in Canada for Mariage Freres so I can buy Wedding Imperial, and Black Orchid for sure.

I would like to try any Taiwanese Assams that exist in the world!

Also continuously on the hunt for Fauchon – La Naissance.

When I rate, it goes like this:

85 -100 = WIN! awesome, I love this and keep it on hand
70 – 85 = pretty darn good but I don’t NEED to own it
55 – 70 = not necessarily terrible but not a tea for me!
30 – 55 = missed the mark as far as I am concerned. Wouldn’t drink it willingly.
0 – 30 = I likely won’t rate this low very often, so if you see it, consider the tea a great big FAIL and probably disgusting.
