drank Russian Caravan by Tea Center
1908 tasting notes

The first real snowfall of the year fell last night, covering everything with a cold, white blanket. I’m not a fan of winter and there’s something I find satisfying about being snuggled up in a warm house with a mug of tea when it’s chilly outside.

I don’t have a wood-burning fireplace but this tea calls one to mind, so I suppose it’s the next best thing. :D

I miss having a Russian Caravan. I’ve never seen it in Denmark. When my boyfriend is going back to the UK for christmas, I think I’ll make him shop for me. I know exactly the one I want.

If it were me I’d send him with a list of teas a mile long! XD

Angrboda

Thing is, I don’t really know what they’ve got available in stores over there. :/ I only know this one because I’ve had it before. I’ll have to do some reconnaissance first and tell him what to look out for.

I am so excited for snow! Winter is my absolute favorite. At school I obviously don’t have a fireplace, but this sounds like the next best thing.

@ Angrboda, soem fo the places I’ve heard my Brti friends talk about are Whittard of Chelsea (http://www.whittard.co.uk/) and Taylors of Harrog

(Ack! Sorry, I accidently clicked ‘Post’ before I was done, hence the bad spelling and cut-off post.) Here’s the rest: …Taylors of Harrogate (http://www.taylorsofharrogate.co.uk/)

Jillian: Yes, Whittard’s is the one I’ve tried so that’s what I’ll make him get for me if it’s an available brand in whichever shop he shops in over there.
I’ll have to check out the others. They have more options on Twinings than we have here too, but honestly it would have to be some pretty interesting selections on that since we have more or less the same things available from other brands here at the same price already. Thanks for the links though, it makes the reconnaissance so much easier. :)

no snow for us yet :(

Jillian

@Lena, you’re in Tennesee, right? Do you guys ever get any snow there? <

LENA

sometimes…

we close schools when we get a good “dusting”. half an inch and it’s mass pandemonium. everyone raids the grocery stores for the basics. HAHA!

Jillian

LOL! XD

Bio

I’m a university student in her twenties who’s currently working her way toward a Bachelor of Natural Resource Science degree. I love both science and science-fiction and I’m a history nut on top of that. Maybe I should just call myself a nerd and leave it there. ;)

I’ve been drinking tea since I was young but it’s only in the past couple years that I’ve become interested in the good-quality stuff.
