drank Queen's Apple by Karel Capek
335 tasting notes

Karel Capek is a Japanese tea shop famous for flavoured tea in cute tins. There are real apple pieces in the tea but it’s heavily scented with artificial apple flavouring! When I say artificial I am serious – when I opened the bag of tea, I was greeted by a smell that reminded me of my fruit-flavour toothpaste in childhood! :0 Fortunately, the taste is more natural than its smell… the mellow sweetness makes it a pretty nice dessert tea after all.

A devilish girl who lives up to the post-80s youth stereotype – hedonistic, frivolous and rebellious – except I love traditional afternoon tea rather than a quick caffeine fix at Starbucks.

I make a living off others’ criminal activities. It’s a busy job and I really wish I could retire, so I can become a full-time afternoon tea connoisseur instead. :j

I love any tea that has nice scent, great flavour and lovely packaging. My current top favourite brands are Mariage Freres, T2, and THE O DOR. ;)

I am now practising mindfulness as a way of living. I decide to use tea tasting as a means to meditate in my daily life. My tasting notes here will therefore be my meditation notes :)

I’ve got no time to update my Pinterest and blog since I became a mom. Nevertheless, if you feel curious, you are most welcomed to visit these abandoned pages:
