The TTB has arrived! So big, so many teas… no chance to try them all!
Tea #30

I have a day off today, so rare home breakfast and tea; and mood for “basic” tea, not any desserty flavour, no strong chais and/or whatever there is in a TTB. There are so many teas which sounded so good, but I am too afraid to be disgruntled because tea.

Osmanthus black tea was right up to my alley, flavoured, but not too much. So I used the rest that was in the pouch meaning 3 and half grams; and steeped it for 4-5 minutes. Well, it is a lovely black tea base, very smooth for me, a bit roasted and chocolately; I am surprised that Irina founds it completely different. Sadly, the osmanthus is very light, giving a bit of floral qualites and its distinctive aroma. A little dill-y if you wonder.

But for breakfast it was fine.

I am drinking almost everything. Tea bag collector who moved to wonderful world of loose leaf.

Trying to rate differently tea bags and loose leaf as tea bags have usually worse quality.

Buried in tea right now. Is in my cupboard (trying to be updated) which sparkled your interest? Write me, I would gladly share with you. But I don’t want anything in return now :)
