Tea of the mid-morning — I found this sample teabag when I was going through my stash last night trying to figure out what teas to bequeath to this cute guy I know. :) I decided I wanted to revisit this again since it’s been a while since I’ve tried it.

I think the base here is perhaps a ceylon and the strawberry flavor is popping out at me a little more than I remember. I am drinking this without any additions and it’s nice that way. I think this is perhaps a ceylon base with a little bit of “gummy” strawberry flavor. I bumped the rating up a little bit.

Cute guy?! ;)

As a cute guy, I would suggest something more forward and complex for you to bequeath to your male friend. Fruity teas tend to be somewhat forgettable and, forgive me, stereotypical. If you want to impress him, give him something unusual, something interesting, something that will make an impression and make him think of you. I would suggest something strong, full bodied and memorable.

I once dated a girl who really loved twig tea, she was always drinking it and would inevitably steep the hell out of it! While its not my favorite tea, it is unique and every time I see twig tea, or taste something similar I end up thinking fondly of her.

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
