What is there to say about this tea? My goodness, this is bland. This is the only tea available at the hotel in Denver I am at.

My vacation (Starting Thursday of last week) has taken me many places. I was asked by family and friends if I wanted to go to Colorado. I said yes. The next day, we were at the Grand Canyon. I had lots of fun there. Then, we went to Four Corners (four states meet at once), and crossed into Colorado. This was followed by Durango, Silverton, and Ouray. We landed in Colorado Springs, where I visited the US Olympic Training Center, and saw Olympians training before they left for London.

Lastly, I went exploring at Cave of the Winds with some Mennonites I met just before. It was great! Now I’m in Denver! I also paid a visit to the Century 16 Theater where the massacre happened. It was very sad and eerie.

Besides my vacation thus far (which still is not over), I should continue to review this tea. I looked at the tea bag, and tried to pick up a scent of tea. It smelled like nothing. So I brewed it, and smelled a bland, faint scent of cheap tea.

I could not finish my cup! I do not want to sound snobby, but this is one of the worst teas I’ve tried! At least I picked up some really great teas on my trip to Durango, and got a fresh shipment in back home. I cannot wait to review those!

Anyway, the taste of this tea was the same: bland. It tasted like I was drinking hot water with the light flavor of nothingness. Why don’t the hotels have good teas!?

I love drinking and reviewing tea. Green, Oolong, Black, White, Yellow, Dark, Pu-erh… It’s all great. In particular, my favorites are Taiping Hou Kui, and Aged Teas.

I’m currently in California, and started my interest in tea at a very young age. Ever since, I’ve looked for exotic, rare, and even newly-developed teas to try.

It doesn’t end there: I’ll try just about any tea new to me that crosses my path.

I typically brew tea in a traditional manner (different teas require different steeping times and water temperatures, ect…). Whichever directions are on the packaging or website, I tend to follow as well.

I’m also building a private collection of Pu-Erh teas and teas good for Aging. Hopefully, they’ll turn out nice.

Companies: If you are looking for a reviewer for tea, I would be happy to sample any of the teas you offer.

Message me for Sample swapping.
