drank Rose Scented by Harney & Sons
871 tasting notes

I decided to mix this one with lapsang souchong and cold brew. I don’t know where, but I read about cold brewing lapsang, maybe I dreamed it. Hot, I normally mix lapsang with rose buds to blunt the smokey flavour a bit. So I thought I would mix these two, why not? It should be awesome.

Well, not so awesome. I definitely do not like lapsang cold. The rose scented tea was super chemical tasting, most likely due to the flavouring. Both of these teas are much better hot.

Oh well, at least I tried and learned a lesson – just cuz you dream a tea blend, doesn’t mean it is going to be delicious in real life. Mmmmmm, delicious tea dreams!

I am a lifetime tea lover.

I did foray into the world of coffee for a period of time, but I returned to my true love. I still, however, enjoy a good cup of java.

My all time favorite tea is Earl Grey, which I drink every morning, the stronger the bergamot the better. I definitely prefer natural oil of bergamot to artificial flavouring.

I mostly like black and dark oolong teas. My current favs are Fujian blacks, Keemun and Assams, and Wuyi oolongs. I gravitate towards anything with lychee in it. I also drink a lot of herbal blends but am wary of hibiscus. I do not favour mate, or pu’erh tea, although I have found a few blends that I like. (I so badly want to like straight pu’erh tea but it all tastes gross to me. I keep trying though). Rooibos, green and white teas fall somewhere in the middle. I find myself gravitating towards heavily roasted oolongs and teas from Paris/France based companies.

I love iced teas and cold brews.

My current tea goal is to make the perfect cup of chai from scratch – almost there…I think.

I am in love with the whole experience of tea.
