I thought I would go out of my comfort zone of unflavored tea and get this. The dry tea smells pretty decadent! But the actual brew is just bad. It is so chemical to me; it actually tastes like someone dumped a little fingernail polish remover in my tea or something. Just a little. It even smells that way, brewed.

The best use for this tea is potpourri. It smells wonderful dry.

Don’t let this turn you off of this company, though. I’ve tried a few of their teas iced and they were delicious!

Wait a sec. I just brewed another cup of tea to get that taste out of my mouth and now I’m sure it’s the water. Someone else filled my Zojirushi and didn’t use spring water!!! BAD. I will try this tea again when I have better water.

I love tea. I first tasted loose leaf when my grandpa brought some back from Russia and I remember just savoring it. Not sure what kind it was; all I remember is that it was loose leaf and it was good. =)

I really enjoy oolong, jasmine tea, green tea, and white tea. I have been getting more into black tea, especially those with chocolate notes! Also, chai is a constant favorite.

As far as tisanes go, I enjoy chamomile and occasionally a mint. I am interested to try rooibus and honey bush. I do prefer teas without artificial flavoring but I’m willing to try most things.

I know next to nothing about puerh, but I like what I have tried so far.

I am consistently amazed at the flavors contained in one leaf. I am on a quest to discover all of them! Slowly, though. Good tea is expensive. :P

Other things I enjoy: Books. My family. Truth. Campfires. Animal Rescue. Gardening. Sushi. Mountain biking. Documentaries. Trees. Music. Culture. Sour cream raisin pie. Not necessarily in that order. :P
