I find myself at a crossroads in that I can not review this tea completely.

Upon tasting this very vegeative tea, my mouth & throat decided to swell up. I’ll be adding this tea along with Kukicha from the Tao of Tea to “Don’t Have List.” Then start a search as to why these two teas are causing this to happen and if there is more out there. hmmm….

Bio

Like most everyone I started out drinking Lipton tea. On a trip back to my home state of Oregon, I discovered Stash Tea Company. I liked them because they were from my home state and the flavors that I found. =) On a trip to Paris, France, I stopped by Mariage Freres. I had my “Ahhh” moment. The gentleman asked what I liked – at the time Earl Grey. My eyes went wide when he picked up this barrel of tea & shook it, opened the lid and said smell. I was in love. My first taste of loose leaf tea was Imperial Earl Grey. I took a break from tea but continued to drink Stash Tea.
Another door to explore opened with the discovery of Jane Pettigrew’s The Tea Companion: A Connoisseur’s Guide. I started marking off the teas I tasted in her book. I have purchased other tea books as well but Jane’s book has been the one I have always returned to for teas. I had the pleasure of picking up Jane’s new updated version of the book at the World Tea Expo. I look forward to tasting more teas. =)
