drank Mint Cocoa by New Moon Tea Co.
1211 tasting notes

I’ve had Yuchi Wild Mountain Black and Cavalla this morning, and I’m just enjoying this one now!

I had an unopened bulk bag of marshmallow root in my cupboard and thought I should open it today to add to this tea. I thought the mint and cacao nibs could only benefit here as it seems to add a soft sweetness.

I’m not really sure if I added enough for an effect (I didn’t want to overdo it). The edge of the mint seems ever so slightly toned down and maybe the barest hint of sweetness. I think I’ll add a bit more next time.

Back to reading about the impacts of climate variation in/due to far north peatlands for this paper (derk)!

I vaguely remember reading papers about the environmental impacts of oil sands on peatlands.

Bio

My partner and I live with our bunnies and cat. I’m currently working on my MSc in biology and enjoying tea along the way!

I love black tea and this is usually what’s in my mug.

I’m also happy to enjoy a cup of green or red rooibos (green preferable to red), herbals, oolongs (unroasted and red preferable to roasted), whites, and subtly flavoured greens.

Likes:
Raspberry, peach, rhubarb, passionfruit, and most fruits in general, maple, creaminess, hay, biscuit, lavender, and cacao/dark chocolate.

I enjoy bergamot when paired with flavours that mellow it (Camellia Sinensis Earl Grey Cream is one of my favourites).

Dislikes:
Any smokiness at all, stevia, too much blackberry leaf, rose, ginger (except in chai), cinnamon-heavy teas, anything cloying or fake/candy-like.

I’m vegan with an allergy to potatoes, so I avoid any animal products in tea, along with sprinkles as these often have potato starch (I usually just pick them out of blends).
