Day 12!

This one dry and brewed definitely reminds me of lemon meringue pie. Mmmm.

The brewed tea to me tastes like strawberries and toffee. The toffee is the dominant flavour. I know there is no strawberry in this blend, but that is how the “fruit” flavour is coming out to me. It also tastes creamy. As usual the black tea base is light, smooth and not at all astringent. For me, this one is sweet enough on its own, no need to add anything else.

While this one was hot, I found it did not taste like much other than hot water. But after it cooled a few degrees, the flavour really started materializing.

I do what I can. Ha ha. I just suddenly popped up on mine too. If you ever want to see the reviews when the dashboard is frozen, just go into the explore tab, and closer to the bottom of the page click on tea reviews.

Mine too! I thought perhaps everyone was out working or shopping and logging later tonight. Yay!

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.
