drank English Breakfast by Art of Tea
513 tasting notes

I know, I know. I should probably be off either working or studying for this exam I’m surely going to fail, and I had every intention of doing just that, promise! But it’s insane how quickly having to focus on an important task makes you realize how messy your tea cupboard is…and how you need to get swap packages together…and how you should probably attend to some sip downs before making new gigantic purchases…and and and….
So, last night I found myself sitting on the kitchen floor, my tea in various predetermined piles all around me. It was astounding to me that I actually had a lot of tea that I haven’t even tried yet! anyway, I can finally join those of you in sip down land, as I’ve finally polished off the last of this tea. There was slightly more than needed for a cup, but overleafing never did stop this old girl, so in all the leaves went and I enjoyed the last cup. It’s a decent English breakfast, but certainly nothing to write home about, if writing home about things is your thing. I also had to grab a tea that didn’t require any sort of thought process whatsoever, as something sort of big was happening at work today and my stomach was already churning because of it. That thing went reasonably well (because I hate passive-aggressively referring to things only to get people all curious and leave them hanging there).
So yay, one less tea in my life!

Well, it’s been slightly over six months since I’ve joined steepster, and I can’t say enough wonderful things about this community. Like many of you, I began my foray into the world of loose-leaf tea by discovering David’s Tea, and although I’ve ventured out and have discovered many other companies that I’m extremely fond of, there are still many of David’s teas that I hold close to my heart and I will always appreciate it as a starting point for my journey.

As for my preferences, I tend to prefer bold black tea, flavoured and unflavoured alike, and I almost always take my blacks with cream and sugar. This isn’t to say that I don’t enjoy a good, flavoured white though, and I’m slowly making my way through the incredibly confusing world of oolongs and greens. I am also not a fan of rooibos, although I am starting to suspect green rooibos may be ok, but you know how it is: when you’ve decided you detest a certain ingredient, you’ll notice it everywhere—perhaps even where it doesn’t exist!

Things other than tea: I’m engaged to be married to my best friend, and feel like the richest woman on the planet because of it. I am also a veracious reader, and I also happen to have an obsession with fragrances, and have amassed quite a collection, although it pales in comparison to some collections out there! As a result of this obsession, I also follow several fragrance blogs, and am always up for a chat about scent. I’m also almost completely blind, and this does indeed mean that I come complete with a guide dog, who unlike me, hales from the sunny California campus of Guide dogs for the Blind. I think I’ve rambled on long enough, but if there’s anything you’d like to know or if you just feel like chatting to someone, please don’t hesitate to send me a message.
