Finally getting to sample some of the teas I got from Bethany (thank you!!).

First up is Monk’s Blend. My packet wasn’t as fragrant as I was expecting, based on past comments, but I could get the floral overtones. They got stronger as I brewed it up.

I can taste the grenadine, but it almost tastes a little mediciney to me. (And I typically like grenadine). I can taste the vanilla and the cup has a lovely smooth mouthfeel because of it.

Overall, this one really isn’t my thing, but I’m glad I got to try it. Thanks Bethany!

I’ve got a lot of interests: sushi, science fiction/fantasy, medieval recreation, cooking (specifically medieval cooking), reading, British science fiction (Doctor Who!), hand sewing and now TEA!!

My favorites tend to be oolongs and flavored black teas. I like highly flavored teas more than delicate ones. Rooibos tends to taste like dirt to me, and hibiscus is very sour to my palate. But I’m always up to try all sorts of things, and will often find things that I really like which I thought I’d hate.
