80

I’m trying to get through this ancient sample from Upton Imports. I did up the rating a bit on this tea this morning since it’s a lot tastier than I last recall. See previous notes for more info.

“Ancient sample,” LOL! I think I have a few of those myself. ;P

TeaBrat

I have way too many! I was just looking at my tea sample basket the other day!

I followed Kittenna’s example and created an Excel spreadsheet for my swaps. That’s when I discovered I have teas from December 2011! Yikes!

TeaBrat

yeah that’s just way too organized for me. ;-)

Kittenna

Hahaha, I have teas from far earlier than that… Trying to drink down those ones before 2013! (Not happening…)

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
