I won’t rate it right now because I may steep it too long (5 minutes) and it is a little bit astringent and bitter.
Will try with 3 min but having said that I am sure I will love it asap I’ll get a correct brewing because even with astringency and bitterness, it is wonderful !

Ohhhh! I am so curious about this one and sold out where I ordered, you were my saviour indeed. Tomato darjeeling indeed – Théodor is sort of glorious at weird-sounding but great in the end tea.

I’m looking forward to the 3-min-review :-). I wouldn’t say I’m really curious in a positive way (who want’s to drink veggies in her tea??), but I’m fascinated nonetheless!

we shoudn’t forget tomatoes are classified as fruits and not as vegetables :) I’ll brew it again in 1 hour after dinner

Barbara

Yeah and there is also a fruit that is actually a veggie. Don’t know which one anymore. Baffeling…

Rhubarb?

But yes tomatoes and eggplants are fruits, so funny when one thinks. I am very fond of the smell of tomatoes in the plant, in the garden, it IS fruity just savory fruity somehow.

advocate is a fruit but we eat it as a vegetable as well, melon is a kind of fruit veggie somehow

Barbara

Oh yes, it was an avocado. Delicious btw. Melon rings a bell as well. Rhubarb is new for me. :-)

cteresa

Oh, I think I probably confused what you were talking about – rhubarb is a part of a vegetable, stalks a bit like celery, but which is almost always used as a fruit (even if it´s a vegetable!).

So rhubarb (as in pie) is a vegetable. Tomato (and eggplant and pumpkins, cucumber, zucchini and a few others) are fruits

First, please forgive me for my English and all the grammatical mistakes you’ll find in my posts.
As English isn’t my mother tongue it sometimes makes things more difficult to express cleverly and accurately what I feel.

I was mainly in black flavoured teas, green as well if not bitter.
I’m now drinking much straight teas because my palate is now developed enough to appreciate them .

My favourite brands are : Mariage Frères,Theodor,Butiki Teas,Dammann Frères, Betjeman & Barton.
My ratings are as follow :

100 to 95 : my darlings; always in my cupboard

94 to 90 : Excellent tea, often in my cupboard

89 to 80 : very good tea, a pleasure to drink it

79 to 70: not bad even nice, why not having it sometimes, but well, not so urgent !

69 to 50 : Meh, deceptive or just not for me – but has some qualities

49 to 30 : I just don’t appreciate it

Under 30 : is this tea ?!?!?
