Another sipdown! This new Breville is really helping me use some stuff up.

For whatever reason I can’t quite find the perfect setting for this, but I think it might benefit from being steeped a significantly longer amount of time. The scent of it is absolutely gorgeous—like a fruity rose—but the taste doesn’t quite live up to it on the standard black tea settings. In general this is a consistently good fruity black tea with a lovely floral lychee flavor. The lychee is unusual enough that this will be an automatic rebuy for me when I’ve cleaned out my cabinet, and luckily Mom loves it too!

Elizabeth, college student, anthropology major, bio and history minor. I love to travel and try new foods (and teas!). I also enjoy music, books, video games as often as I can get my hands on them.

I loved tea as a kid, didn’t drink it for about ten years, and then rediscovered it a couple of years ago. Tea sometimes helps me feel better when chronic illness is making things hard. It’s also fun to experiment with!

I’m still pretty new to the types and brands of tea out there, but I’m interested in trying some of everything. My favorites are earl greys, yunnans, medium-bodied oolongs, Japanese greens, fruit, vanilla, and floral flavors (especially jasmine and rose). My least favorites are teas that are overly smoked, bitter, or contain strong hibiscus or orange peel.
