drank Soursop by Tea Time
1367 tasting notes

Pretty sure this is what I had at the newly opened coffee/tea shop just a few blocks from my place. Interestingly, it’s called Camellia yet they’re more of a coffee place, AND there’s a tea house also opening next door.

So, I wanted to try something unique, and this called to me. Soursop?! Okay. It smelled like a dark berry with a hint of sourness, however brewed it smelled more.. floral. I ended up dumping it unfortunately, as it was all floral and soapy tasting to me. I’ll have to talk to the shop owners to see if it was perhaps their first brewed tea made (it well could have been) or if this is how the tea is naturally supposed to taste.

A few years ago, the obsession with tea started. The cupboard got bigger and bigger, more swaps occurred, group buys, secret rendezvous with local teapassionistas… and that’s how you end up with 500+ different kinds of tea in your home. At one time.

Now, it’s purge time. Time to gather what’s needed and let go of the rest. Almost all of the tea was given away, sold, or otherwise shared. A few relics still remain. It’s still a challenge to avoid the chipmunk-like hoarding of The Teas, yet, the lightness of being from having so little compels me more. And so, I’m happy to share (anytime!) and will occasionally desire small amounts of tea for swaps, just to try.

As for the day-to-day stuff, I’m focused almost entirely on Love, (yes, with a capital L), Spirit/Self, transformation, and work (dating columnist and consultant).

No-can-do: lavender, overly floral (French florals, or florals that are creamy rather than, well, floral work well!), sugar, Splenda, all grains.

Love: fruity, dessert, chai, spicy, all types of tea.
