Chose this on a whim down in the grocery this morning, since I didn’t have a simple black tea at my desk, and I’m tired of the Red Rose teabags in the kitchen here at work. I don’t consider myself a tea snob, but I do like some nice flavour. This tea gave me exactly what I wanted. It is a lovely, robust black tea with strong tannins and a mild bitterness. I’ll happily enjoy this tea in the coming weeks. With autumn right around the corner, tea is such a welcome morning starter.

I live in Toronto, Canada, land of the fiercely intense, but short, summer, and absurdly long, equally fierce, cold autumn/winter/spring. Tea, coffee, soup, stew, chilli, mulled wine, and hot cider are staples here for a good part of the year.

Currently, I’m really digging plain black tea, chocolate and caramel accented black teas, and chais. I’m not into super grassy teas, but I like a good, smoky jasmine green. I’m told I should try some lapsang and pu’erh, which I intend to do, but I’m hella lazy. One of these days!

I live with one (very loud) Siamese cat, one (floppy-eared and goofy) Doberman Pinscher, and one (somewhat introverted and stoic) man who indulges me shamelessly. I’m pretty lucky. :)
