I’m a 23 year old physics graduate living with my girlfriend in Christchurch, New Zealand. I’ve been drinking loose leaf tea since I was 16 and it has become a shared passion of both me and my father.
Black teas and Oolongs are my stock standard but anything new my eye catches is pretty much on the menu. Over the last few years I been slowing breaking down a prejudice against herbal blends and open up more to that sort of drink.
Cricket is my other great passion, so I can imagine nothing better than 5 days spent with friends, watching a test and sipping on whatever I have in the cupboard.
95-100 Brings a tear to my eye
90-95 Sinking through a trapdoor of delight
80-90 Damn fine
70-80 Solid, enjoying myself
60-70 At least I only made one pot
50-60 We all make mistakes
40-50 Bad enough to tell friends about it
30-40 Lives at the back of the tea cupboard
20-30 Some sort of cruel joke
10-20 Slightly better than cyanide
