I thought this would be nice for a boost this morning, I am not thrilled with it. I also think perhaps when you steep a tea at 140 F it’s difficult for me to drink it because it’s like lukewarm water. :)

Anyway this is ok, mildly sweet but it seems to be lacking a bit in flavor. Would not purchase again (see previous notes). Second steep at 160 F for 90 seconds is slightly better.

Hate getting tea disappointment, especially when you’re looking for a morning boost!

It was quite a hardship… :)

Bio

My profile pic is of a pink dahlia at Golden Gate Park.

Hobbies include: tea, making art, animals, vegan things, buddhism, nature, creativity, books, writing, cooking, meditation, yoga.

I am a fan of many different teas but my favorites are blacks and oolongs, chai, also like darjeeling and pu-erh. I’n always learning and expanding my horizons!

Dislikes include: bergamot, jasmine, highly tannic or bitter teas, overly judgmental and bitter people. :)

Live in San Francisco, I’m a SINK (single income, no kids) and love the urban life, but traveling out to the middle of nowhere is always fun too.

I tend to not drink things I know I will hate so a lot of my tea ratings are on the higher side. Here’s my rating system, sorta

95-100 I love this tea and would like to keep it around

94-90 An excellent tea which I may or may not repurchase

89-80 Pretty good, above average

79-70 Acceptable

69-60 Mundane – Will probably drink it if I have it

59-50 Ick

49 and below Nasty
