Tea of the afternoon here… do you believe I haven’t made it through my Nature’s Tea Leaf order yet? I’ve been busy!

So I am not thrilled with this particular pu-erh. In my opinion it is lacking in the raspberry flavor and what flavor I am detecting seems artificial and weird. It was better with a little turbinado sugar added. I will probably finish off the bag that I have but can’t really recommend it.

Meditation for the day: Real love is accepting other people the way they are without trying to change them.

I wonder how they flavoured this one. I just took an intro to tea class and the professor said they infuse it using scent or juice. Somehow I can’t picture that with raspberry lol

According to my man at the Aroma Tea shop, sometimes flavoring is just sprayed onto teas.

Sprayed! interesting. I would not have guessed that

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
