I’ve gotta’ get another cup of tea in before the power goes out. Thanks Hurricane Sandy! (That was sarcasm in case you couldn’t tell). This tea’s aroma is weird. It smells like blueberry and…something else. You know, it almost smells like green unripened blueberries. Hmm, it’s a weird aroma to be sure.

Ook! Yeah, that aroma is even weirder and, I’m sad to say, grosser in the taste. It’s definitely an unripened blueberry taste. Tart and bitter and blech. I’m not sure what could save this tea. I find it undrinkable. Just yuck all around. :( Nope, two sips and I’m done. This one is going down the drain. Thank you to Kittenna for providing the sample though! Sorry, I’m just not a fan.

Entering the sweet blissful world of tea aromas!

Having discovered this website at the end of July 2011, I’m so excited to share my tea adventures with all of you! I grew up with my grandmother serving Twining’s English Breakfast with cream and sugar.

But on a trip to Seattle in 2010, I stumbled into a Chinese teashop and tried my first oolong tea. I was forever changed! I embarked on a startling new love for green and white teas.

With a world of teas to discover, I was inspired to keep a tea journal to record my thoughts and new favorites. Let’s get brewing!


My ratings are completely subjective and 100% my opinion. All ratings are given in relation to each other (ie. teas are rated in the order of my enjoyment of them). Therefore, my ratings will constantly change as I try more teas.


I love swapping!!! If you see something in my cupboard you’d like to try, just send me a message. If you’d like to trade, anything on my shopping list will do or feel free to send something else entirely. I’m willing to try almost anything (although I’m not really a fan of honeybush, red rooibos, pu’erh, Lapsang Souchong, & banana-flavored teas).
