Confession: My first tea love, back in high school, was Twinings Blackcurrent. I hadn’t realized it, but my taste buds were hoping for that again here. Well, they didn’t get it, but that could be good or bad depending on your taste. Looking for something that doesn’t hit you over the head with the fruity flavor? This is it. Maybe you prefer a more basic black tea with just a hint of fruit? This is it too. The tea base itself is an odd duck – lighter in flavor, kind of thin, but quite tannic. Not a combination I love personally.

I love cooking, gardening, photography, studying languages, alleys, riding bikes everywhere, snowboarding, travel, dogs, and oddly, housekeeping (as much as one can with another career). Also working on the lifelong dream of starting a business.

If I could only drink four teas ever again, they would be Black Beauty (Mandala), Huang Zhi Xiang Phoenix Mountain Dancong (Verdant), Silver Buds Yabao (Verdant), and Shan Lin Xi Concubine (Eco-Cha, at least the fall 2013). These teas are ridiculous.

Current tea shops under exploration:
Camellia Sinensis

Wish list:
Mountain Tea
Den’s Tea
Taiwan Tea Crafts
Tea Drunk
Suggestions welcome!
