My stomach was feeling a little unwell earlier, so I figured that I should skip the black tea I was craving and go for something a little lighter. So, I found this in my “drink these first” box. It smells a lot like the Tropical Getaway from Compass Teas I had earlier today. I don’t have a thermometer, unfortunately, so I have to guess at the water temperatures for anything less than boiling. I should probably pick one up soon. This tea keeps the delicious fruity smell during and after steeping. However, I’m guessing I didn’t get the temperature right, since I’m getting no fruitiness and instead a somewhat bitter green tea. There almost seems to be a soapy flavor. Definitely need to pick up a thermometer before I kill any more helpless teas.

I’m a premed student at a university near Austin. I’ve recently started getting very much into tea, but I’m still learning. I’ve lived in Hawaii, Mississippi, Colorado, Maryland, and California, and each place has it’s own charm, but Colorado was definitely my favorite place. I also knit quite a bit and sell things on my etsy when I’m not busy with school.
I really love swapping, so if anything in my cupboard catches your eye, please let me know!
