Disappointing. I was hoping the manuka would shine through but all I can taste is a strong bold Assam. Brewed it for 3 min. Will try a shorter steep and see what happens. This tastes no better than generic supermarket English breakfast tea. Why even bother with adding something to a base this strong?

Japanophile, mother of one
Tuna sashimi
Cherry blossom
Plum wine
Anything chilli …. And of course tea!

TEA I like:
- oolongs
- dessert teas
- matcha
I dabble a bit in photography, cooking, playing piano, like to travel (last trip was to Singapore), swimming and love a good massage.

Dormant hobbies include baking, sewing, scrap booking, bento making, hiking, Latin dancing, pencil drawing of faces.

I have a very wide appreciation of music.
