Thank you Anna for this sample. Was this from the EUTTB round 1? Not sure. I had an accident with some of my samples as the cupboards collapsed and mixed them altogether, originally I kept samples separate so I knew who they were from and what they were from ie swap or box. Got some more drawers now but I can’t remember all of them :(

Oh and just to share, I had an Incredible Hulk moment with my shorts a moment ago. I sat down and they ripped off me to look very Bruce Banner-esque. I haven’t put weight on recently but the material was thin, thin material and my arse must not mix. Oh well.


This raw leaf had a beautiful scent, like sweet and creamy berries with a hint of tartness.

Flavour is a little tangy/sour with a delicate sweet berry after taste. The green tea is very thick which is making me think I steeped it too long or too hot, also getting some dryness in the after taste. It’s an astringent, grassy type of green which doesn’t quite match the sweet berries. contrast is a little too much. A few sips gets me used to it but overall it has an overly perfumed feel and it’s not as pleasant to taste as it is to smell.

Flavors: Berries, Cream

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.
