6 weeks of struggling to walk with this slipped disc in my back and I finally started to get better until this morning when my back went crack and now I’m stuck hobbling around. Hopefully it will be well by tomorrow because I have work to do. Sods law I suppose.

Another tea bag cleared from my shelf. I’m running out of space and could do with drinking as many samples as I can to make room.

Once steeped this tea is dark brown in colour with a sweet tropical fruit scent. Hard to pick anything out particularly but out of the three (apricot, pineapple and passion fruit) I would say the apricot is the strongest and most recognisable…even if it is artificial.

Flavour is quite mellow for the black tea base and the fruit is sweet enough to not need additional sweetener. The fruit tastes candied and too unnatural for my personal liking but it’s not the worst I’ve had. Half way down the cup the black tea becomes stronger, it could also be as the tea cools down.

Not something I could drink much of as it’s just too sweet and artificial but it was ok.

Sod’s law: is that the same as Murphy’s law?
Sorry to hear you’re in pain! You’re too young for that!
Sending mojo your way!

I just had to do a quick Google search for Murphy’s Law but yes Sods Law is the same thing but a British version of it. :)

Also thank you for the mojo, I could really do with some positive energy and healing right now. It’s funny how often I take small things like being able to walk or bend over for granted.

Bio

I’m 30 years old from Leicester, England named Kayleigh. I have a wonderful husband called Richard whom I am very lucky to have in my life.

I started off many years ago drinking herbal and fruit teas which over time peaked my interest in trying new types. Eventually I began to import and sample many different teas and cultures which I still do today. My life goal is to try as many teas and ways of having tea as possible.

Tea wise my cravings change constantly from pu erh one month to jasmine green to the next and so on.

I adore cats and have six of my own called Cassie, Mr Sooty Pants,Ivory Ruby, Lady, Misty and Ollie.

I also have two fish tanks which thankfully my cats have no interest in. They house an array of tropical fish and shrimp.

I am a proud vegetarian and have been for the majority of my life. When I say vegetarian I mean just that as well, no fish or seafood, no chicken now and again, no animal products such as gelatine and cochineal.

I also enjoy watching Japanese Anime and horror films.

I am always up for tea swaps so if you see anything in my virtual cupboard then please contact me.

A short list to help swapping with me easier though honestly I am not fussy and am willing to try anything. Plus the notes below are usually, sometimes I love a tea that has an ingredient I tend to dislike and other times I hate a tea that I thought I would love.

Likes: Any fruit but especially melon and orange, vanilla, all tea types (black, green, white etc), nuts (any), flowers, ginger, chai.

Dislikes: Licorice, aniseed, clove, eucalyptus, lavender.

My rating system
I have my own way of rating teas that makes each one personal. I have different categories, I rate each tea depending on what it is made of. For example: I rate green teas in a different way to black teas or herbal teas. So black, white, green, Pu Erh, Rooibos, Oolong, blends and tisanes all have their own rating system. That way I can compare them with other teas of the same or similar type before for an adequate rating. And when I do give top marks which is very rare I am actually saying that I would love to drink that tea all day, every day if possible. It’s a tea that I would never turn down or not be in the mood for. So while I agree that no tea is 100% perfect (as nothing is) I am saying that it’s as close as it comes to it. After all, in my book the perfect teas (or close to perfect anyway) are ones that I could drink all the time. That is why you will find a high quality black or Oolong will not have as high a score as a cheap flavoured blend, they are simply not being compared in the same category.
