I’ve come across Houjicha in a few blends, and thought I might like it. I was looking forward to trying this to see if I really do.

Tada! I do. By itself, it’s a little less exciting than when in blends. But something about this tea reminded me of brownies. It’s in the creamy, satisfying, mouth-coating ability it has. Delish.

I discovered a love for tea when I started a Ketogenic diet (http://www.reddit.com/r/keto). Cutting carbs/sugars meant I needed a daily caffeine fix in another form. I don’t like coffee by itself (and I dislike fake sweetners if possible), Mountain Dew is out of the question. Tea?

I started with very little tea knowledge. I grew up with my mom’s herbal tea blends that I hated – and every so often I’d get something from the grocery store to try out. No good. So when I went on my keto journey, I threw myself into learning about teas. I grabbed samples from all over the web and changed everything I knew about tea.

Now – I only drink tea by itself. No addins at all. I prefer black blends, or single-note greens. I like robust teas that don’t taste like flavored water, instead are a whole entity to themselves. I love matchas, masalas, and genmaichas. I’m learning about all kinds of teas – the possibilities seem endless. Yum.

My rating system, roughly:

100 = I will Marry You.
90-99 = Adore. Stockpile time!
70-89 = Good. Wishlisting this stuff!
50-69 = Decent, will finish my stock but not likely to buy again.
40-49 = Not a fan. Will try to sell/trade/give away my stock
00-39 = Crap. Maybe I’ll give it away. Maybe I’ll use it as fertilizer.
