First tea of the day and the first I tried from my Christmas haul. My mother bought me a lot of flavoured tea bags again, I told her before that bags aren’t my thing but she never remembers. Gives me the chance to try something I wouldn’t normally, I suppose. Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and holiday.

This bag was pulled out the packet and sniffed, out of habit above all else, but to my surprise it smells amazing! Rich and dark cocoa with roasted hazelnut and gentle spicy finish.

Put into boiling water for roughly 3-4 minutes.
The result is a sour, dark roasted hazelnut tea that matches the smell. Each sip fills the mouth with flavour that remains smooth enough without milk nor sugar. The Assam base adds a nice rich spice to the blend. The downfall of praise is that this tea leaves some dryness in the after taste, and after drinking this I feel I need something else to wet my mouth. Still the flavour was nice and perhaps with milk and sugar it would have eased the dryness, or turned into latte form this would be amazing!

This is what I was talking about, it’s a tea I would never have bought myself but actually enjoyed despite bag form. Best hazelnut tea I have tried.

Flavors: Chocolate, Hazelnut, Spicy

I’m 34 years old from Leicester, England named Kayleigh.

I started off many years ago drinking herbal and fruit teas which over time peaked my interest in trying new types. Eventually I began to import and sample many different teas and cultures which I still do today. My life goal is to try as many teas and ways of having tea as possible.

Tea wise my cravings change constantly from pu erh one month to jasmine green to the next and so on.

I also enjoy watching Japanese Anime and horror films.

I am always up for tea swaps so if you see anything in my virtual cupboard then please contact me.

A short list to help swapping with me easier though honestly I am not fussy and am willing to try anything. Plus the notes below are usually, sometimes I love a tea that has an ingredient I tend to dislike and other times I hate a tea that I thought I would love.

Likes: Any fruit but especially melon and orange, vanilla, all tea types (black, green, white etc), nuts (any), flowers, ginger, chai.

Dislikes: Licorice, aniseed, clove, eucalyptus, lavender.

My rating system
I have my own way of rating teas that makes each one personal. I have different categories, I rate each tea depending on what it is made of. For example: I rate green teas in a different way to black teas or herbal teas. So black, white, green, Pu Erh, Rooibos, Oolong, blends and tisanes all have their own rating system. That way I can compare them with other teas of the same or similar type before for an adequate rating. And when I do give top marks which is very rare I am actually saying that I would love to drink that tea all day, every day if possible. It’s a tea that I would never turn down or not be in the mood for. So while I agree that no tea is 100% perfect (as nothing is) I am saying that it’s as close as it comes to it. After all, in my book the perfect teas (or close to perfect anyway) are ones that I could drink all the time. That is why you will find a high quality black or Oolong will not have as high a score as a cheap flavoured blend, they are simply not being compared in the same category.
