52teas 12 Days of Christmas Sampler 2012 – Day 6

Hmm, Graveyard Mist. I would have been really excited for this one, if I hadn’t received a sample from Indigobloom a while back. I didn’t like it very much then, and I don’t like it very much now either. I’m just not a fan of spearmint in tea. It’s too much like toothpaste. Oh well, on to the next!

Preparation
185 °F / 85 °C 2 min, 30 sec
Indigobloom

at least now you know it wasn’t just the one batch! lol

Hahaha! If anything, this cup was worse because it was more potent. I’ve decided not to drink any more teas with spearmint. It’s just not my thing.

I always feel bad writing less than happy reviews about teas I get from swap partners. I know you can’t like every tea, but I always feel guilty. Like, you shared your awesome teas and then I go “Ick!” LOL!

Haha, ditto, I feel bad when I don’t like a tea someone generously shared with me. Especially if I know a) they love it or b) it’s expensive.

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).
