You know those times when you run out of everything at once? The laundry soap, Kleenex, toothpaste, dogfood, and Kraft Dinner? That happened to me a week before Christmas, only I ran out of all my teas at the same time. It was terrible – I had to make do with the old tea bags I had at the back of the cupboard. TEA BAGS, can you imagine my horror?
Anyway, I had to hold out till after Christmas because I knew my lovely parents were giving me a gift card. I made it to the store yesterday and was finally able to stock up. In case you are wondering, here is a list of what I’m drinking these days. They are all black, with one exception.
Top Row: Honey Black (a new-to-me tea, I can’t wait to try it), Assam Banaspaty (classic, long time favourite, strong and clean flavour), Kenyan Tinderet (newer favourite – full, earthy flavour), Guangzhou Milk Oolong (mellow)
Bottom Row: Glitter and Gold (long time favourite, sweet and spicy), Kashmiri Chai [GREEN] (brand new favourite, fresh and spicy), Irish Breakfast (used to drink it bagged, haven’t tried it as loose tea), English Breakfast (used to drink it bagged, haven’t tried it as loose tea).
This is nearly a pound of tea leaves (about 400 grams). I should be good till June.
