I’m a little scared of this one – it smells medicinal. Not in that cough syrup way but in a kind of dental novocaine/disinfectant kind of way.
I actually like the way this tastes. The scent remains but this has a nice hibiscus flavor. I am one of those people who really likes hibiscus.
I have to take points off for the scent though because that is seriously off putting. I don’t like feeling like I’m drinking poison, ya know? The flavor is nice and I’m getting tired and ready to go to sleep, so not a loss at all.

I like this one, too. Next time I have it, I want to try it iced.

Bio

I’m a writer and as such, am obviously an emotional rollercoaster. I used to drink tea a lot more, but kind of stopped and switched to coffee. Now, after too much stress, I’m completely unable to drink coffee anymore, so I figured tea would fulfill some of my “awake” needs as well as calm my emotions. I’m working my way through a huge selection of samples of pretty much everything, leaving notes so I remember what I like.
I love being adventurous and trying new things, even (especially?) things that sound strange or off-putting. Aside from tea I also enjoy tasting wines. The last really interesting one I tried was a dandelion wine! (And yes, it actually was delicious. Extremely bizarre and herby, but delicious).

I don’t have a set of numerical ratings set down yet, mainly because I’m very intuitive (read: disorganized and opinionated) about how I rate things. Basically, If something is in the 70-85 range, it’s pretty good, totally drinkable. Below that, in the 50-69 range, it was probably incredibly boring. I really hate boring tea. Below 50, I wouldn’t drink it again and might not have finished it (I actually really hate leaving ratings below 50, it makes me feel bad. I’m probably too nice). If it’s above 85 then I really liked it. Super high ratings are reserved for teas that totally blew me away.
