Another tea I always sort of thought was smoky and generally avoided (unless it was used as a base tea somewhere along the way and not identified). The leaves are the cutest mini curls!

Hmm. It’s not my favourite. It has hints of maltiness, but with a coppery-ness that I don’t prefer. The Lapsang Souchong had this too, but less in my mind, because I remember not being overly bothered by it. This tea comes off more savoury. Yes, savoury is the key word here. As I sip this cuppa, the coppery flavour falls a bit more to the background and more savoury-ness comes forward, but nothing in particular. It kind of feels like I’m drinking a veg broth. A high quality veg broth haha!

Bio

I live with my partner and our two bunnies: Callie and Ben, and two cats: Freyja and Ivan. I’m currently working on my MSc in biology and enjoying tea along the way!

I love straight and flavoured black teas and this is what I’m usually drinking.

I’m also happy to enjoy a cup of green or red rooibos (green preferable to red), herbals, oolongs, whites, and subtly flavoured greens. Other teas I’m happy to try at least once!

Likes:
Raspberry, rhubarb, passionfruit, and most fruits in general, maple, creaminess, cacao/dark chocolate, honey, coconut, and chai spices. I’m open to other flavoured teas but they can’t be cloying or fake/candy like.

Dislikes:
Any smokiness at all, stevia, too much blackberry leaf, flowers (rose and jasmine), and ginger (except in chai).

Flavours that can go either way:
Hibiscus, vanilla, and peach.
