Tea of the afternoon here… an ancient sample from Ashmanra I am just finishing up. Somehow it doesn’t seem as smoky as I remember but it’s possible it just got a bit stale too. See previous notes for more info.

Amy – my whole 8 ounce tin came from Doulton! So that tea must be at least 18 months old now. I just got my first ever Upton order today, and 200 grams of this was in the order! :) I also got Lapsang Souchong Black Dragon. Their tins are lovely! I foresee a new tea shelf in my future.

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
