Good basic black tea for the rainy mornings. The company recommends two minute steeps, but it does also taste good even after forgetting the bag in the cup for five minutes. With the accidental long steeps the added flavours give more space for the black tea base which pushes through, although with a sliver of astrigency that could also be due to the added quince. Rich and smooth on tongue.

Lovely specimen, which works in both bag and loose form. A delightfully compatible rival for the Lady Grey as an everyday work tea.

An MA student in Aalto ARTS, Helsinki. Works as a studio supervisor at the aforementioned University and as a gallery assistant for The Association of Finnish Sculptors at the Gallery Sculptor.

Enjoys life that revolves around art in general, drawing, printmaking, MA studies, work as a technician at the university and many, many fine cups of tea. And an understanding husband.

As for the basic characteristics of the everyday life there are two main aspects that eventually come up with the people I meet and form an acquaintance with:

Getting into situations and things happen.

Stand between me and my tea and I’ll show you a person with no future ahead.
