Varieteas Box (October) – 3/30

I keep forgetting to delve into my Varieteas box, so I still have a huge stash of teabags to work my way through. This one wasn’t a hit with me, though, unfortunately. I do quite like lemon and ginger teas, especially at this time of year, but I just didn’t get a lot of either with this sample. The lemon is slightly stronger than the ginger, but I really don’t get much in the way of either. And as for the ginseng, I don’t pick that up at all! It’s an extremely watery tea and not one I’d drink again.

Boiling 4 min, 0 sec 1 tsp

Hi, my name is Amy and I live in Rotherham, in the UK.

I grew up drinking tea (my mother was addicted – she didn’t leave the house in the morning unless she’d had at least three cups!), though it was strictly your basic, everyday brew we enjoyed; huge boxes of teabags stocked up on every week.

Having dabbled with loose leaf teas in my twenties, I confess to being somewhat underwhelmed. Though, of course, my uneducated tea-brain wasn’t aware of brewing temperatures, steeping times and suchlike back then.

Now in my thirties, I’m rediscovering the delight of tea and enjoying the journey. My taste buds are expanding on a daily basis and I’m grasping more and more about the art of tea. I’m still a tea novice, with much to learn and appreciate, but I’m adoring the ride and looking forward to widening my tea collection.

I also enjoy reading, cross-stitch, knitting, gardening, my allotment plot and television.
