This is my tea of the morning, oh this stuff is so good!

Very chocolatey and malty, hoping it will wake me up soon… it’s hitting the spot with our early morning fog. see previous reviews for more details.

With all that fog, I picture you living in a lighthouse.

HI Amy!! Too funny that out of all the teas I have at my disposal, this is the same one that called to me this morning. We didn’t have fog this morning here, but I was on the way home from my niece’s CD release party in St Paul, MN very early this morning and there was fog on the ground out in the fields and a moon shining down through my moon roof. When I got back to my village, I put on some fresh water and brewed up the same black pearls! We may not be in the same place, but at least we get to share the same tea at times! Emaho (how wonderful)!

Profile

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
