Ronnefeldt Earl Grey has a surprisingly nice tang to it, due to the addition of lemon. I’m not normally a great fan of Earl Grey but I am finding that citrus combination seems to work for me. Not always, as there are some Kusmi Tea blends that I’m not terribly fond of, but if the citrus is sharp enough to cut right through the tea then I find that that works for my palate.

Treasurer Gold cigarettes, on the other hand, fail to impress me. Of the 3 varieties these are the mildest, though they have the same nicotine content as the Black. The lower carbon monoxide content may be the issue here so that they seem very light. Of course the packaging is impressive, with a metal tin, gold filters and printed paper, but unfortunately the taste doesn't live up to the presentation. Then again, the only way that these cigarettes could look any better would be if the paper was actually a rolled bank note.

Four O'Clock Organic White Tea Chai is produced by Trans-Herbe Inc, a Canadian company, and is a tea that I wouldn't have discovered if not for rooting around in the tea cupboard of close friends post dinner. The ingredients list is the sort of thing that might be found on any box of commercial chai though this is a white tea variation on the original spice combination that works surprisingly well. The white tea gives a lighter taste though must be brewed for no longer than two minutes to avoid an unpleasantly stale over-brewed flavour. The light taste is pleasant enough but what won me over was the sensation of cinnamon warmth that followed swallowing a mouthful. The initial taste is lightly spicy and sweet but the gentle warmth on the roof of my mouth after made it an ideal after dinner drink.

In other news: the world is full of fools and some of them work as copy editors for the fantasy genre and are yet still unaware of non-English words that the fantasy genre has adopted into its lexicon.

Also, this is a far more elaborate, both graphically and structurally, version of Castle Master which I recall playing with limited music and EGA graphics.

In other news, I still don’t quite know what I think about this Lindsay Gardens Island Spice Tea. It purports to contain black tea, coconut, mango and black pepper, and as the box tells me is microwavable. I can definitely taste the coconut and possibly the mango but there’s no real trace of pepper that I can detect. On one hand this has to be one of the few processed/artificial coconut flavoured things I can stand and certainly the coconut flavouring is wonderfully delicate but on the other hand the fact that I’m not sure I can taste anything else makes me think that the combination of flavours touted on the box is a little bit gimmicky. It’s an inoffensive tea at any rate but nothing spectacular and if I hadn’t been given some I doubt I would have ever bothered to try it.

Yesterday my cousin brought me back some tea from her travels. It was an English Breakfast tea blend of Ceylon and Assam and the resulting mixture produced a far milder tea than I’m used to. I don’t drink Assam too often because I tend to find it too malty for my taste and even blended as it is here I’ve usually found it just a little bit too heavy, with the sole exception of when it’s blended with Yunnan in a Fortnum’s blend. So I was pleasantly surprised to find that this La Tetería blend wasn’t particularly heavy at all. It’s a rather smooth tea with the usual kick I associate with Assam which makes for a nice change and means that this is the sort of tea I can enjoy in the afternoon instead of just limiting it to the morning for fear of its heaviness making me sluggish later.
