Have I ruined my palette by drinking black teas and chais for the last month or so?

I’m having a little trouble adjusting to the MUCH lighter tastes of this tea. It’s good. It’s very good. But subtle. I even steeped it a bit longer than the recommended 2 minutes because the liquor was almost totally clear. The smell is that of a lightly floral green tea. I do not taste the apple notes, but the honeysuckle is there…and proud. I love the smell of honeysuckle. It flashes me back to when my Pop (grandfather) taught me how to extract that one magical drop of honey from the flower. It’s a good memory. Maybe that’s why I keep honeysuckle on my back yard’s fence line. If a tea can help envoke a happy memory like that, then I’m all for it.

I ordered this one. Trying not to get too excited about it so that I don’t end up disappointed, but this review isn’t helping!

Lena, I do think sometimes your tastebuds get into a routine.

Get the sample size…it’s worth it. I’m going to be nice and put some of this tea in the traveling teabox when it makes its way to me.

Rishi’s sample sizes definitely aren’t that bad. I’m quite content with it. The shipping prices are just a tad ridiculous.

Ricky… you do not want to get me started hehe. Although I’m more upset that’s still more expensive (granted I did get the tea itself 62.5% off the original price) than my brick and mortar tea shop. What are the closures like on their samples? That’s another thing that irritates me w/ some companies.

Resealable ziplock bag type. It’s pretty secure. I haven’t had problems with it. At least when you open it, your tea won’t spill everywhere. The sampler bags also vary in sizes. I like them a lot better than Harney’s sampler bags.
