This be some weird ass tea. Hay and burnt apples, that’s what I get from it. Pear? Hm…. pushing it. I’ve cleaned the kettle of all limescale/hard water deposits, so I know it’s the tea. I might? save some for Sil & co to send back, but I’ll likely just leave it here for the family to try out, since tea isn’t terribly easy or cheap to get in Switzerland.

Flavors: Apple, Burnt Food, Hay

Preparation
Boiling 4 min, 30 sec 1 tsp 12 OZ / 354 ML

so sad, they can’t easily get tea there!?

No one around here wants to try that weird ass tea anyway ;)

You can get tea here, just limited kinds, and event is crazy expensive. Dinner at the restaurant down the street, the cheapest item on the menu is 30 Swiss francs, which is about $40 CDN right now. It’s a nice place, but not that nice.

Bio

A few years ago, the obsession with tea started. The cupboard got bigger and bigger, more swaps occurred, group buys, secret rendezvous with local teapassionistas… and that’s how you end up with 500+ different kinds of tea in your home. At one time.

Almost all of the tea was given away, sold, or otherwise shared. A few relics still remain. I now travel full time with only two carryon bags to my name. One quarter of those bags are tea.

It’s still a challenge to avoid the chipmunk-like hoarding of The Teas, yet, the lightness of being from having so little compels me more.

If I have enough, I’m happy to share. If I’m in your area, I’d love to swap, meet for tea, and explore together.

As for the day-to-day stuff, I’m focused almost entirely on Love, (yes, with a capital L), Spirit/Self, transformation, travel and my writing and speaking work.

What kinds of teas do I normally like?

YES: flavored teas, fruity, dessert, chai, and spicy (REALLY spicy).

A FONDNESS FOR: all white teas, malty black teas, any herbal or medicinal teas, strange/weird teas you can only get in one place.

ALLERGIC TO: strawberries, lavender

DISLIKES: any added sugars, grains, lapsang souchong, and overly floral teas – I might enjoy a Jasmine Green every once in a while, but unless it’s a creamy floral tea (think roses in a chai, or the smoothness of a floral note in a French tea), I’ll likely pass. Earl Greys are a hit or miss with me; heavy on the cream or fruit notes and I might like it, heavy on the blergamot and I definitely won’t.
