Kusmi Tea Advent calendar 2020, day 8

I don’t like Rooibos in general. Growing up in family where we only drank herbal teas and rooibos, I think I’ve had enough, and my lovely fam ruined them for me.
I also hate vanilla in teas, it almost always tastes artificial to me and sometimes even make me sick. I should have known better and just pass on trying this one. I guess I was hoping that since it’s Kusmi (one of my all-time brands), it would not disappoint and somehow positively surprise me. Well, it didn’t. I’m still underwhelmed and was just reminded why I don’t like these kinds of teas.
One of the weaker options Kusmi has to offer in my humble opinion. Next time I’ll politely decline :)

Flavors: Vanilla

Hi there, I’m Anna! I’m a lawyer currently living in Cambridge, UK. Tea is my biggest hobby and the only thing I consume without fail every day. Probably between 6 and 12 cups/mugs/buckets of tea a day.

I prefer my tea smoking hot and without milk or sugar.
Actually, I take it back, the best ‘cheer me up’ beverage is black tea with honey and lemon. Handed to you by someone you love and who says everything will be fine.

Favorite Purveyors:
Paper & Tea

Teas I love and could die for: Moroccan mint, Genmaicha, Green jasmine, White tea, Earl grey, Darjeeling, Mate and Macha

Teas I hate with a passion: fruit teas, rooibos, chai, roasted mate

My guilty pleasure is having high tea experiences in posh places around Cambridge. It’s so worth it.
