Taken with no sugar and no milk, this is a rather poor blend with unpleasant artificial (?) flavorings. However, add a teaspoon or two of sugar and enough milk, and the taste will change dramatically into something very artificial, very bubblegum-like, and extremely enjoyable! A cheery rainy day, indeed. I’ve found the same scheme works wonders for some other Nordqvist teas, particularly Faithful Friend and Tiger’s Daydream. Not an everyday tea, but a very nice oddball sort of tea to have on your shelf.

(Unfortunately, I only have this in teabags. Couldn’t find the loose leaf version, even in Finland!)

I work in a tea shop. The shop in question mostly sells Mariage Freres teas, so I drink a lot of those.

Chinese black teas are currently my favorite teas, especially Dianhongs, Keemuns, and occasionally Lapsang Souchong. I also love Thai black teas when I can get my hands on them. Of herbal teas, I only drink rooibos and have a strong dislike towards anything that has too much camomile, lavender, etc.

At this point, I’m trying to get a working knowledge of Chinese green teas and Chinese and Thai oolongs.
