I was looking forward to trying this tea but it has been weeks since I have been in the city during the day. After a couple of hours hunting around for Father’s Day gifts with my sister, we made our way to the Tea Centre for afternoon tea.

Really not impressed with this one at all. The taste was like a really watered-down, generic green tea with a drop of lemon juice. The tea was paired with some cake, so at first I put it down to a poor combination of tea and food, but even after drinking two cups I was still underwhelmed.

The guy at the store said that it was a very mild tea, and to be fair it doesn’t taste “bad”. Perhaps to my jaded palate it just happened to be too mild and flavourless. I was really hoping for an intense brew like their Japanese Lime, so I will have to content and console myself with my latest Tea Centre purchase – Chocolate Mint.

I always find intros difficult to write. Where to start . . . Sydney-sider working in insurance who has lived in London for ten years but returned to Australia in 2012. Despite coffee being the drink of choice in Oz, I come from a family of dedicated tea drinkers. Although I enjoy all teas – both black and green teas, either flavoured/scented or pure single-estate teas – I have a special fondness for Earl Grey and Ceylon teas.

With a cup of tea in hand, I love settling down with a DVD. I love cult films, anything visceral and slightly surreal – Shaw Brothers Kung Fu, Giallos, Spaghetti Westerns, Eurohorror, Hammer Horror, etc. If I’m not watching a film, I’ll be watching classic British TV like 70s Doctor Who, Blake’s 7, The Avengers, Danger Man as well as Prisoner: Cell Block H and the occasional Showtime or HBO series.

As much as I enjoy reading or art, I just don’t have the time for either these days.

My current favourites:

The Tea Centre:
Ceylon Pattiagalla
Darljeeling Selimbong FTGFOP1 1st Flush
Japanese Lime
Orange Blossom Pai Mu Tan

Oolong Fresh

Earl Grey De Luxe – Madame Flavour
Gunpowder – Temple of Heaven
