One cup of tea for each tag I receive ;)

It appears I have been tagged twice by Robert from thedevotea and Rachel from IheartTeas, so I need to be twice as convincing and concentrated when answering these questions on my not so sacred garden, aka tea and me.

But first of all, what I do enjoy here is that I decided to drink an extra cup of tea to celebrate all those that tag me.

First, let’s start with how you were introduced & fell in love with the wonderful beverage of tea.

In Norway, I don’t know why but my brother and I were given for our 4 o’clock tea with a lot of milk. Perhaps it was because of the cold, perhaps…

As for falling in love, it was only several years later since I had stopped drinking tea and began once more when I started working. I don’ remember well how I made it from the yellow bag to the loose leaf side but perhaps my answer to question 2 is a hint.

What was the very first tea blend that you ever tried?

It was a long time ago but I think it was Indian Spice from Lipton. A blend for which I always had a nice memory and I was saddened to see that it was no longer made. And I never tried any Chai blend since or even before that. Not that I am superstitious or afraid but I never felt the urge to give them a try.

When did you start your tea blog & what was your hope for creating it?

I started my tea blog on… wait May 2011? I can’t believe it. It seems like this was yesterday.

My hope in creating it was bringing added value to you dear reader by having a rather specialised and unique approach blending tea and economics into teaconomics (even if thedevotea thinks I stole the name from him).

List one thing most rewarding about your blog & one thing most discouraging.

Only one thing? Looking for new stuff and ideas to write about is perhaps the most rewarding things since it allows me to read and search a lot.

The most discouraging thing? That I don’t have enough time to write about all the things I have in mind.

What type of tea are you most likely to be caught sipping on?

All kinds of teas. I am always eager to try new things be them unflavoured, flavoured, white, green, black, blue… from strange and unknown gardens/countries. The only things I don’t try are those with ingredients and things I dislike (mint among others).

Favourite tea latte to indulge in?

I had to look up at what a tea latte is. And my answer is none since this product didn’t seem really appealing to me.

Favourite treat to pair with your tea?

With my special one. Those are my best tea moments.

If there was one place in the World that you could explore the tea culture at, where would it be & why?

Everywhere where I have tea friends because they are all special, unique and I can learn something from them while sharing a good cup of tea with good people.

Any tea time rituals you have that you’d like to share?

I like doing tea for my colleagues. I enjoy selecting some of my best teas for them and making a nice kettle before going from desk to desk and helping them taste and discover new things

Time of day you enjoy drinking tea the most: Morning, Noon, Night or Anytime?

Tea in the morning is perfect

Tea in the afternoon is more than alright.

Tea in the night rocks.

Tea at anytime is the best.

What’s one thing you wish for tea in the future?

More people, more places, more gardens.

Who do you tag?

I will open this to others so I tag our dear @lahikmajoe, a French blogger and tea lover @Melle_The and someone with a hat and some tea @Mad_Hatter_Tea
