This was another tea in my “xmas-tea-giftbasket-of-meh.” I guess that I had really really low expectations since I’m not a fan of chamomile since having it straight-up, and I really like my spearmint plain. Well, it wasn’t as “blarg” as I’d feared. AmazonV described this as busy flavor-wise and I think that she nailed it. I’ll probably keep this one and go through the box since it’s an okay herbal, but when it’s over I will not be buying more. M

Bio

Proud all-around nerd, crafter, and brand-new Assistant Library Director. Give me an engrossing book and a wonderful cup of tea and I’m in heaven.

After being a barista for almost a decade it wasn’t until 2010 that I discovered loose leaf tea. Now I’m hooked.

How I use Steepster has been evolving since I joined. Yes, I use it for my personal “to buy or not to buy” info, but I’m enough of a goofball that I hope it can amuse others more often than not.

I’ve also started to become anal about my tea (times and temps). That’s surprised me. I finally realized that I should respect the leaves like I used to respect the beans. I also take my tea plain unless otherwise noted.

There’s really nothing remarkable or noteworthy of how I rate teas. I do take it a tiny further step to help clarify the muddled middle grounds for myself. TG is a definite repurchase. Anything below that is less and less likely.

TG=Teagasm
NE=Nice Enough
