This was my second Earth Day free tea from Starbucks.

This was the other fruity tea they had besides Youthberry in store, this one being on a herbal base and caffeine-free. It was okay, the pomegranate flavours definitely came through but I think I’m just not in the mood for tart flavours at the moment because my brain kept thinking cherry cough syrup :D I resteeped it and stuck it in the fridge at work to see what its gonna taste like tomorrow cold though.

Something positive I should mention about this promo – the baristas consistently gave 2 teabags for my large travel mug, which is nice, I had expected only 1 bag.

finding myself in hot water again and again…

I grew up in a tea drinking culture, but my parents were seriously hung up on jasmine tea and oolong tea, so I never really had much exposure to other teas. My horizons expanded when I moved to Japan and discovered genmaicha (roasted rice tea aka popcorn tea). after that, I discovered black teas, red teas, and flavoured teas, how different teas could be by the region, processing methods, water used.

Now I can’t get enough of it!

I experiment with different teas, blending them sometimes to see what the outcome would be. I find my tastes to be quite diverse, but run away from the more floral side of things. Tie Kwan Yin is probably the only one that most people seem to enjoy, that I don’t. Otherwise I am game for most teas. Fruity? love it. Smoky? Mmm. Earthy? bring it on! Light and vegetal? keep pouring!
