After lunch tea here, purchased at Whole Foods last night because OF COURSE I need more tea, right?

I was hoping for more of a black tea experience here, but like Lisbet I am mostly tasting plain tulsi and it is very strong, like a minty-herbaly sensation. I don’t mind it, but I guess I could always try blending my own into black tea if I wanted more tea. For an assam, it doesn’t seem that strong.

This stuff is very good for my stress levels and what can I say? Sometimes I am like a delicate flower, especially around this time of year when there’s no sun. It’s nice to make self care a priority. :)

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
