My family certainly know me well! I received so many tea related presents for my birthday yesterday; a winter gift box from the English Tea Shop, a Teabloom set that included a teapot, teapot warmer and tube of flowering teas; and a generous gift voucher for T2. I’ve already spent the voucher – my partner and I popped over to the T2 store in Sheffield and as well as a few boxes of tea, I also purchased the mug I’d had my eye on for quite some time!

As well as all my lovely presents, the postman also brought me a box of goodies from Rosie Lea Tea, which I’d ordered earlier in the week. Today I’ve been working my way through these.

First up – English Breakfast! This was exactly what I needed when I woke up this morning. Strong, tasty and full of flavour. I felt as though I was drinking something superior and savoured every sip. The blend of black teas were spot on and this gave me the injection of caffeine I crave in a morning.

Hi, my name is Amy and I live in Rotherham, in the UK.

I grew up drinking tea (my mother was addicted – she didn’t leave the house in the morning unless she’d had at least three cups!), though it was strictly your basic, everyday brew we enjoyed; huge boxes of teabags stocked up on every week.

Having dabbled with loose leaf teas in my twenties, I confess to being somewhat underwhelmed. Though, of course, my uneducated tea-brain wasn’t aware of brewing temperatures, steeping times and suchlike back then.

Now in my thirties, I’m rediscovering the delight of tea and enjoying the journey. My taste buds are expanding on a daily basis and I’m grasping more and more about the art of tea. I’m still a tea novice, with much to learn and appreciate, but I’m adoring the ride and looking forward to widening my tea collection.

I also enjoy reading, cross-stitch, knitting, gardening, my allotment plot and television.
