Read the English translation of the tea description just now – so this is a pure black tea. Now, I strongly suspect that the tea bag I used this morning was contaminated because I could smell vanilla in it! I am not too surprised though, cos the tea bag came in a thin paper packet, and it was stored in a box (I got the tea bag from a B&B in Germany) along with other highly aromatic Messmer teas which had the same packaging. I believe the tea bag had been in the box for some time too. It seemed to have lost some of its flavour and was not as strong as it’s supposed to be. BUT I did enjoy the tea as I love vanilla and lighter teas!! :P

Boiling 3 min, 45 sec

A devilish girl who lives up to the post-80s youth stereotype – hedonistic, frivolous and rebellious – except I love traditional afternoon tea rather than a quick caffeine fix at Starbucks.

I make a living off others’ criminal activities. It’s a busy job and I really wish I could retire, so I can become a full-time afternoon tea connoisseur instead. :j

I love any tea that has nice scent, great flavour and lovely packaging. My current top favourite brands are Mariage Freres, T2, and THE O DOR. ;)

I am now practising mindfulness as a way of living. I decide to use tea tasting as a means to meditate in my daily life. My tasting notes here will therefore be my meditation notes :)

I’ve got no time to update my Pinterest and blog since I became a mom. Nevertheless, if you feel curious, you are most welcomed to visit these abandoned pages:
