drank Queen of Berries by Tea Palace
1112 tasting notes

This one was sent my way from Angrboda.

The steeped tea smells strongly of berries. The taste is more subtle, with the berries clearly there, but not overwhelming the tea base. The tea base also complements well. I’m not generally a fan of berry amalgamations, though I love berries individually, but this tea is quite delightful.

Thanks Angrboda!

In other news, the flights to home/Jamaica are officially booked! I couldn’t rearrange my psych presentation, but that only means I’m back one day early. YAY. But I’m finding it difficult to be excited because the amount of work I need to get done in the next three weeks is seriously overwhelming. I should probably just install an intravenous caffeine drip.

Yay for Jamaica! Where are you going? I went to Ocho Rios once many years ago with friends and had a blast.

I am pretty sure we flew into Montego Bay and drove to Ocho Rios. In any case, I remember being there briefly. Sounds like a great time!

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.
