  7. Happy Blog-anniversary. Don't enter me, as along with Japanese Sencha (tastes like grass!!) I can't stand Earl Grey tea....LOL I just received a big box of goodies from David's tea, took advantage of their sale. My new top favourite tea is Oat Milk Latte from David's tea. I have also just drank a few cups of Salted Caramel Oolong and that was good also.
