well i was PRETTY sure this would not be something that would be up my alley, so i’m not going to rate it. VariaTEA let me have this sample…likely because they like tormenting me, knowing i’ll try anything and everything…even blergamot teas!

This tastes like rosewater smells. It’s like drinking a mouthful of rose potpourri. Gross. So not for me…though i’m thinking that it might be something that our friend keychange might enjoy.

So when I grabbed these samples, I had no idea which flavors I grabbed. Mostly I was distracted by the adorable elephants

This sounds amazing! Maybe you could use the rest for cooking? Rosewater makes a good dressing for berry salads, so maybe try a simple syrup made with this tea to dress a berry and mint salad?

i’m still always surprised with this tea being slightly smokey. just seems weird and atypical of most jin jun mei that i’ve tried. still a good cup but always slightly weird to me

mmm i love how unizque tasting this tea is. something about it just makes me happy every time i drink it, even though i don’t ever crave it :) i still can’t really place the flavour..it’s like cinnamon, but that’s not quite it….it’s more than that.

So no real clue what to write about myself here. A friend got me into drinking loose tea and it’s something I thoroughly enjoy though I have nowhere near the experience that many folks on the boards seem to have.

My other interests are cycling, reading, board games, disney cruises, world of warcraft and dancing – in no particular order. I love travelling and am currently working on trying to get my other half to as many place in the world as possible.
