Wah – I just wrote a nice detailed tasting note for this but it did not get saved for some reason.

Normally I think Alishans are kind of wimpy but this one was really good. Lightly buttery with a scent of gardenias but not overwhelmingly floral. Very clean and delicious, I would definitely buy it again. Steeped 4 times and still very flavorful! Sorry for the brevity of this note, I don’t have the patience to recreate it – :)

It is annoying, isn’t it?

It has happened to me once and I did try to recreate the review, but I probably wont do that every time. :-//

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
