Hello! I love literature, politics, and tea. I work in the Information Technology field and am currently working toward an MA in English.
Favorites: Black, oolong, and rooibos. Blends that are vanilla, chocolate, nutty, or dessert-like are especially appealing to me. I also love ginger, citrus, and lemongrass.
I like green teas as long as they are blended with fruit and/ or spices, and I LOVE them when they’re floral.
I have a love-hate relationship with kombucha, and I’m very picky about my chai- It has to have a high-quality black tea base and be heavy on the cinnamon and light on the nutmeg. Also iffy about mate and herbal teas in general, although chamomile and I are usually on speaking terms.
Dislikes: White tea, unflavored green teas, honeybush, fruity herbals, hibiscus in high quantities, plain peppermint. (Although I am not opposed to trying blends that cross into these neighborhoods if they come from reputable companies.)
I’m not a swapper, but I hope we can still be friends :)
90-100: Perfection and heaven and magic, all in one cup.
