I am enjoying this green tea while I am trying to decide which teas I should say bye bye to…
Gosh… sometimes we do need to clear out our stash, don’t we ?

Here is the result : http://steepster.com/discuss/6964-french-teas-to-swap

This green tea is a little wonder, so perfumed, so greeny and cherry. Just so yummy.
I keep this one for sure !

You reminded me to view my wishlist and I cleaned up a bit. Some teas I have actually purchased and enjoyed need not be on wishlist. Some that I no longer wish to try are removed from my wishlist. Everything for me is mood and how my palette has elevated somewhat from last year. Thanks. Happy New Year by the way.

it’s hard to keep an eye on everything and update all the time. Happy new year to you too :)

Aww! So tempting but I have to take a rain check for now on swapping…I have too many samples to drink at the moment (not that there’s ever too many), but I also have good stuff I want to send you eventually, so we’ll talk soon :-)

Ysaurella

of course no probs and I can send you some Theodor I cherish (plain ones) and MF exceptional blend to me (the grand fancy Oolong…)

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 ?!?!?
