This one surprised me, and I’m wondering if it’s what was written on the bag? (Received this in a swap from Dinosara). The reason why I wonder is only because one name was scribbled out, and this is much better than the average rating that I’m finding on here, from folks I know I have similar taste buds to. Also wondering if there’s some form of berry in here that I may be (mildly) allergic to…

Brewed up green initially (weird) then a light coppery brown once finished. Smells of caramel, tastes of it, with something berry-ish in the background. Whatever it is, I quite like it, other than the lip burning bit, so I’m sadly dumping the last third of the cup. Still really grateful to have tried it!

Flavors: Berries, Caramel

Hmmm, should be the right tea (I think I accidentally wrote the wrong name on the bag) but I am not totally sure. Weird!

Bio

A few years ago, the obsession with tea started. The cupboard got bigger and bigger, more swaps occurred, group buys, secret rendezvous with local teapassionistas… and that’s how you end up with 500+ different kinds of tea in your home. At one time.

Almost all of the tea was given away, sold, or otherwise shared. A few relics still remain. I now travel full time with only two carryon bags to my name. One quarter of those bags are tea.

It’s still a challenge to avoid the chipmunk-like hoarding of The Teas, yet, the lightness of being from having so little compels me more.

If I have enough, I’m happy to share. If I’m in your area, I’d love to swap, meet for tea, and explore together.

As for the day-to-day stuff, I’m focused almost entirely on Love, (yes, with a capital L), Spirit/Self, transformation, travel and my writing and speaking work.

What kinds of teas do I normally like?

YES: flavored teas, fruity, dessert, chai, and spicy (REALLY spicy).

A FONDNESS FOR: all white teas, malty black teas, any herbal or medicinal teas, strange/weird teas you can only get in one place.

ALLERGIC TO: strawberries, lavender

DISLIKES: any added sugars, grains, lapsang souchong, and overly floral teas – I might enjoy a Jasmine Green every once in a while, but unless it’s a creamy floral tea (think roses in a chai, or the smoothness of a floral note in a French tea), I’ll likely pass. Earl Greys are a hit or miss with me; heavy on the cream or fruit notes and I might like it, heavy on the blergamot and I definitely won’t.
