drank Huckleberry Tea by Market Spice
1431 tasting notes

Grabbed every single tea I could at Market Spice at the Pike Place Market in Seattle this weekend, because they sell it in one-bag pouches for sampling, or loose in the tiniest of tiny bags for whatever amounts to $0.94 USD. This was one of their in-house blends and in a single teabag to boot, and I kinda wish I’d grabbed more now. Smells very sweet and strongly so, and tastes pretty much the same – even though I oversteeped it by a huge amount, there was zero bitterness or astringency. Would be fantastic iced!

Flavors: Berries, Lime

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 7 min, 0 sec 1 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML

Bio

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.
