It’s so rainy and blah today – I could really use another cup of tea. I decided to try this one that Jaime sent! Thank you Jaime!

I taste passion fruit, followed by a green tea flavor. I’m not getting orange or jasmine. I also taste a strange taste which I can’t identify. It tastes like…mothballs! I think it’s a wonky trying to be jasmine flavor. Some bitterness. Granted, I’m not a huge green tea fan, but this strange taste is bothering me. I don’t think I can finish the cup. This is not a good one for me :( I do have a few more bags – if anyone would like to try it, I would be happy to pop them into an envelope for you and mail them! Just let me know.

I do have another flavored green bag in my arsenal – I think I will try it as a comparison next!

I do appreciate trying this Jaime! Everything I try further refines what I know I like and don’t like – it’s an education :)

I will say that this is one that varies by the bag for me…some cups I’d gulp down, others went down the drain after the first sip. All from the same box. I’m still tying to figure that one out!

Bio

I love to cook, bake, read, paint, knit, do needlework, and garden. I need my coffee, but I LOVE my tea. I work at an Art School, and attend a large public university doing post-bac work (my BA is in English). I’m interested in the liminal spaces between art and craft, the academic and the practical, the individual and community, and the old and the new. I’m currently exploring these ideas through the disciplines of education, literature, history, and psychology.

I enjoy writing tasting notes, but have decided not to numerically rate teas as of 9/14/10. For an explanation, see my looooong tasting note about Mountain Malt from the Simple Leaf.

My favorites:
Chinese black teas
A good “milk and sugar” English style black
Earl Grey (classic, and in all variations!)
Vanilla teas (classic, and in all variations!)
Jasmine, Rose, Violet and other froofy, flowery teas!
An Occasional Oolong
Flavored Rooibos
Herbal Tisanes
