Boredom is setting in now and I just don’t know what to do with myself. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1_RZAGnFcI4
Had to listen to that after I typed that first sentence. :)

I’m not up for anything thick or rich at the moment and thought a herbal tea blend would be great. So through my drawer I route and pull this one out. Not usually a fan of chamomile but love lemongrass and mint and orange so it could go either way. Still I have to try this at some point.

The raw blend consists of large ingredients for the most part with some finely chopped/dust looking herbal pieces too at the bottom.

It smells like sweet orange with a hint of mint. Very citrusy, waxy, sweet and delicious. Totally not what I was expecting but delighted by it.

Once steeped this tea is yellow in colour with fresh and very minty with a hint of lemongrass citrus.

Flavour is strong but smooth and the first flavours I can taste are mint and lemongrass. It has a little sweetness and floralness to it in the after taste. Not as much orange as I was hoping for, like the raw blends smell promised, but non the less it’s a pleasant drink. Very relaxing and calming.

I have another pots worth of this blend that I will save as my bedtime tea. I could do with the help sleeping this week.

I’m 30 years old from Leicester, England named Kayleigh. I have a wonderful husband called Richard whom I am very lucky to have in my life.

I started off many years ago drinking herbal and fruit teas which over time peaked my interest in trying new types. Eventually I began to import and sample many different teas and cultures which I still do today. My life goal is to try as many teas and ways of having tea as possible.

Tea wise my cravings change constantly from pu erh one month to jasmine green to the next and so on.

I adore cats and have six of my own called Cassie, Mr Sooty Pants,Ivory Ruby, Lady, Misty and Ollie.

I also have two fish tanks which thankfully my cats have no interest in. They house an array of tropical fish and shrimp.

I am a proud vegetarian and have been for the majority of my life. When I say vegetarian I mean just that as well, no fish or seafood, no chicken now and again, no animal products such as gelatine and cochineal.

I also enjoy watching Japanese Anime and horror films.

I am always up for tea swaps so if you see anything in my virtual cupboard then please contact me.

A short list to help swapping with me easier though honestly I am not fussy and am willing to try anything. Plus the notes below are usually, sometimes I love a tea that has an ingredient I tend to dislike and other times I hate a tea that I thought I would love.

Likes: Any fruit but especially melon and orange, vanilla, all tea types (black, green, white etc), nuts (any), flowers, ginger, chai.

Dislikes: Licorice, aniseed, clove, eucalyptus, lavender.

My rating system
I have my own way of rating teas that makes each one personal. I have different categories, I rate each tea depending on what it is made of. For example: I rate green teas in a different way to black teas or herbal teas. So black, white, green, Pu Erh, Rooibos, Oolong, blends and tisanes all have their own rating system. That way I can compare them with other teas of the same or similar type before for an adequate rating. And when I do give top marks which is very rare I am actually saying that I would love to drink that tea all day, every day if possible. It’s a tea that I would never turn down or not be in the mood for. So while I agree that no tea is 100% perfect (as nothing is) I am saying that it’s as close as it comes to it. After all, in my book the perfect teas (or close to perfect anyway) are ones that I could drink all the time. That is why you will find a high quality black or Oolong will not have as high a score as a cheap flavoured blend, they are simply not being compared in the same category.
