Nothing is more nice than waking up on a single day weekend with something to make it feel somewhat worth it. This cup had that crisp citrus scent and zing that a slice of lemon usually brings to a hot cup of tea. Now i don’t know how they were able to mix the gentle subtleness of white tea with the gentle tones of green tie, while achieving the nuances of an Earl Grey. Granted its not the Earl Grey that you normally think of, but this gets the merit for the technicalities and the flavors that pronounce themselves from beginning to end. The second steep was much more mellow on the flavors of the tea which can be expected from a green-white blend, but the citrus notes of the lemon and bergamot hold true. Good cup to wake you up and make just say, “Ahhhh” :)

Flavors: Cream, Flowers, Grass, Lemon Zest

Just a normal guy that gave up the normal daily coffee for a healthier, more flavorful, more intrinsically complex beverage. Being a US marine and deploying on the regular makes enjoying a decent cup of tea difficult at times but shows that even the “rough” guys can enjoy a great cup of tea.

Here are my rating categories, FYI:
100-90: Absolutely awesome! I don’t know why i’m spending time typing about them instead of drinking!
85-89: pretty damn delicious, and will keep most of them in the permanent collection, but they’re not quite as spectacular as the cream of the crop.
84-80: Tasty teas that I enjoy and would drink again when i can find it, but more than likely will not make a second appearance except for freebies and samples.
79-70: Teas that I would probably drink again, but wouldn’t seek out. They don’t quite do it for me in one aspect or another; often just not quite my style
69-50: Teas that I don’t really enjoy all that much and wouldn’t drink another cup of.
49 and below: The unfortunate bottom category. This tea is just disgusting to me.
