VariaTEA sample. She taped the package up, so i couldn’t actually see the ingredients beyond “black tea” and flavours. Meant i wasn’t sure what to expect. As this brewed, i quickly became aware of the coconut as it had that smell that you get when the coconut isn’t fresh or it’s a type of coconut in teas i can’t handle. Wasn’t quite a rancid smell but put me on edge. When i took a sip of this, all i could taste was a sort of weird creamy coconutish black tea. So imagine my surprise when the tasting notes here said this was a strawberry tea. Yeah, not so much for me haha. That being said, i haven’t had much luck with taxi teas. Glad to try out a new company through variaTEA but i’m not sure i’d ever order from them on my own given the very middle of the road sort of view i have on most of their teas. this one however? worse than that.blech.

It’s all good. Still fun to try new teas even if I don’t like them. I just don’t do it on days where I want to know what I’m getting in to.

So no real clue what to write about myself here. A friend got me into drinking loose tea and it’s something I thoroughly enjoy though I have nowhere near the experience that many folks on the boards seem to have.

My other interests are cycling, reading, board games, disney cruises, world of warcraft and dancing – in no particular order. I love travelling as well!

Most of that is on hold these days though, including tea drinking like I used to as I have a new little one who eats up all my spare time.
