Day 22.

Writing this review for posterity only. I totally messed this one up.

I am so disappointed. I quite liked this last year too.

I steeped this one for maybe an hour… I have had a super crappy day, have lots to do tonight to get ready for Christmas holidays. I felt guilty about not getting to this one yesterday, so I thought I better brew it up. But then I forgot about it, sitting on the counter, tea bag steeping away in the now warmish water.

It is strongly cinnamon, lots of lemon balm. It feels like it is scraping my throat all the way down. cries. I wanted cookie…

Next time I guess.

Bio

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.
